About Prudence Photography


The song "Dear Prudence" written by John Lennon of  The Beatles was the inspiration for the name Prudence Photography!  Founded in 2007, Prudence Photography grew to become a full-time photography business from its humble beginnings as a portrait photography studio. Prudence Photography offers photography service for weddings, portraits, special events, and formal/informal Corporate events, Engagement Photography and Save-the-Dates


Why Choose Prudence Photography


Honesty in service and professionalism are the very foundation of Prudence Photography. My company is a licensed and insured photography business located in Chicago, Illinois. I only reserve a limited number of events and projects per month to maintain the consistency and quality of work. While my style is fluid and up-to-date with the current trend, I do make sure that I conform to your theme and not force my style that may not rightfully represent you, your partner or the people that you’re with. I'm very flexible with pricing too and can customize based on your photography needs.


I love to hear from you!
