John Welsh

Owner, Founder & Lead Visual Artist


We started preserving weddings in 1992 as a video production studio specializing in weddings. Our unequaled custom blend of quality with value was quickly noticed and things really took off! Chicago Wedding Pictures went full time in 1997 and we never looked back! In 2006 we moved to our current, full production, state of the art studio in Fox Lake / Ingleside. We own our building and keep regular hours. This makes contacting us as easy and stress free as possible. You need a experienced, secure, dedicated studio that specializes in weddings for you to trust your wedding photography and videography to.
