Your wedding journey begins when you say “yes” to the ring and your life is swept up in special moments as you prepare to begin your new life as a married couple. Our photography acts as a visual storyteller, sharing your unique story from proposal to engagement photos to the moment you say “I do.” Each couple is unique and every wedding reflects that uniqueness – we are able to capture those spontaneous moments of celebration and intimate details that will create a timeless collection of photographs, enabling you to relive your special day for years to come.


I am truly blessed to have met and worked with Rick, Eliisa and the entire team at Rick Aguilar Studios. My wedding planner – Anthony at Liven It Up Events – matched me well with Rick and said we would be like peanut butter and jelly. Well what a great sandwich we made! I have never worked with such an amazing professional before who knew exactly what to do in every situation to make anyone he photographed feel cool and calm but also excited to be “under the lens”. Rick has worked with such an array of different personalities and people like Mayor Daley, Reality Show stars and more. Nothing surprises him and with every click of the camera you can tell he truly adores what he does. He made each and every family member feel as special as the bride and groom – which was important for me to see. He also has an eye for what will and will not work and guides you into just the perfect pose possible. Ladies – he IS the second most important man to have at your wedding! Thank you Rick for well…………being you :).

Instant Party Photo Booth


The INSTANT PARTY PHOTO BOOTH is the perfect activity for every event.  Whether you are hosting a corporate meet & greet or sharing your love at the wedding of your dreams, our OPEN AIR style booth is the perfect fit.  Guests jump into the frame and pose for their picture, which is instantly printed for a great party favor.  Share your event online with instant social sharing too!




Every family is unique – our family roots are embedded in the differences of the people who love, support and shape who we are. Capturing these magical bonds is a fine art that materializes the colorful lives and stories of your loved ones.  Whether you are celebrating a new baby or gathering for a family picnic, it’s a special time to have a Family Portrait to memorialize the day.  Using the best lighting and professional equipment, our photographers guide your group into the frame and capture that special shot.  Or experience a personal portrait session at the studio – perfect for small families, new babies and kids, or pets.  The milestones pass so quickly.  It’s important to capture these moments in time.



Not every photographer out there understands how important photography is for your business.  We do.  Photography not only elevates your brand, it also speaks to your clients about the human behind the business.  Our clients range from top Chicago law firms, government agencies, pharmaceutical companies, accounting firms, and more.  The studio is here for your next award ceremony, mixer or company seminar.  Or build your brand with consistent, professional head shots.
