Chicago Wedding Photographer   Ty Acierto is the owner and Lead Photographer of Prudence Photography. He's a member of Professional Photographers of America and a Columbia College of Chicago Alumni. He feels weird talking in the third person so he's switching now...

Phew! much better! Let's restart, I'm Ty Acierto, I'm a Professional Photographer based in Chicago and I also travel in all States.  Some of the weddings I have covered over the years include Indian Weddings, South East Asian Weddings, Traditional American Weddings, Polish, Asian, Muslim Weddings, Jewish and Latin-American Weddings. I shoot in candid/ Photojournalistic style. I blend contemporary, modern, and classic approaches when composing my shots. Most importantly though, I'm a versatile Photographer and I love to hear what you're looking for! Let's chat!



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


The very foundation of Prudence Photography is honesty in service and utmost professionalism. I do not compromise and I will never cut corners to achieve an end result. 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!
