wedding at Chicago Washington Square Park & Salvatore’s
“The best wedding photographer! Agnes is so creative and talented! We loved doing our engagement photo shoot with her, and she was so quick in editing and getting my pictures to me. They turned out beautiful. Agnes was so great to work with through out all my wedding planning. She had some great ideas and was very flexible and on top of things. We were married in May, and she sent me 2 sneak previews of the pictures within a week of the wedding! She is so fast, and her work is impeccable. My entire family it thrilled with the pictures she took. The album she helped me design is gorgeous. She is not only talented, but so reasonably priced, especially in the crazy bridal industry in Chicago. I would highly recommend her to everyone!”

wedding at Chicago River Roast
“We absolutely loved working with Agnes. She was a pleasure to work with, and the end result were gorgeous photos of our wedding. We absolutely love our photos, and think her style is unique among wedding photographers. Agnes was willing to work with us to create a customized package that made sense to us and worked for our budget. We can’t say enough good things about our experience working with her.”
Sara + Dan
wedding at Chicago Grand Piazza
“We liked Agnes so much we use her for all of our family photos.
It has been two years since our wedding. We loved the pictures that Agnes took and the wedding album is beautiful. The personality of the photographer makes a big difference at an event. Agnes is professional, pleasant and very easy to get along with (while being incredibly organized). The proofs were delivered very quickly and Agnes was patient as we pondered and pondered which ones to pick from the selection. We liked our photos so much that we hired Agnes to take 6 month and 1 year shots of our daughter. The 6 month pictures were gorgeous. We just got back the 1 year shots and I am pretty sure my daughter is the cutest thing going. We recommended Agnes to our neighbors – who also hired Agnes for a photo shoot with their one-year old daughter. They love the pictures. (it is always a relief when you recommend someone and everything goes splendidly). Agnes is great. I have no reservations in recommending her. “

wedding at Chicago Architectural Artifacts
“Our pictures are so beautiful. We love them so much. We also had an engagement shoot with them, which was so nice because we go to know them and get a feel for how photos would go on our big day. A pleasure to work with, very professional and at such a reasonable price! Also I know it was very very hot on our wedding day- but not one complaint and still produced some wonderful photos for us and my family. I would recommend Agnes and Margaret to anyone. Check out her blog- that is exactly what the photos look like!! Thanks again Agnes, you are so great at what you do!! “

wedding at Waldorf Astoria Hotel Chicago
“Agnes was very professional, but still exceptionally fun to work with. And more importantly, the finished product was fantastic. She was flexible and accommodating when scheduling an engagement shoot. On the day of the wedding, she captured so many great shots and was never obtrusive or in the way. She also was very timely in getting the photos up for viewing. I had a great experience with Agnes and would recommend her to anyone.”
Wayne + Bessie
wedding at The Westin Chicago North Shore, Wheeling, IL
“I would definitely recommend Agnes to anyone who is looking to receive excellent service and great quality pictures for their events. Agnes knew what she was doing, she made great suggestions, and she works with you on your requests. Agnes is an easy going person to work with, she takes great pictures and her price on her service is very reasonable. We were glad that we found her to be our photographer for our engagement and wedding events.”

“Agnes is the best! She and her team are professional, on time and are worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY! From our engagement session to our access to photos after the big day – everything has run smoothly and efficiently. Our photos are priceless and they are of the utmost quality. WE LOVED our experience with AGNES MALORNY PHOTOGRAPHY!!!!”
Amanda + Steve
wedding at The Rialto Square Theatre, Joliet IL
“Agnes Malorny knocked our socks off!! I was a little worried because there weren’t a lot of reviews, but it’s because she takes limited weddings per year so she can pour her heart and soul into her work. It’s so clear that she’s not only gifted at what she does, but that she truly loves it. Agnes shot our engagement at a farm last August, and our wedding this May. Throughout the shoot, she’s very personable and helps the couples feel like they’re meant to be in front of the camera! I’m totally camera shy with no ability to fake smile, but her shots made my mother’s jaw drop. My mother literally told me she had never seen me smile like that in pictures in my whole life! Agnes just has an absolute talent with candidly capturing moments. She’ll give you direction, but not freeze pose you. And WOW, she just has a gift for finding the most perfect lighting outside! Everything has that warm, romantic haze. She also sent us a preview of a few pictures fully touched up for online use the DAY of the shoot! We ended up with around 250 pictures from the engagement, and over 1,000 from the wedding, all gorgeous, perfect captures of the moment. We’ve definitely built a lifelong relationship with Agnes. We’ll be doing a trash-the-dress (more use the dress) shoot with her in the fall, and will look to her for any family-related photo shoots in the future. Heck, she might just end up kidnapped and forced to take pictures of our honeymoon! She even kept up with me to find out how my surgery went! Go with Agnes – she turns your relationship into a piece of art.”

wedding at Big Foot Country Club, Fontana WI
“Agnes is just simply the best! She did our engagement photos and our wedding in September of 2013. She has amazing talent, gives great direction, is both professional and fun to be around at the same time. Our wedding photos turned out amazing and it has helped us immensely to remember and enjoy every part of our big day. I cannot stress enough how much of a value Agnes’ work is and how much we loved working with her. I couldn’t have asked for anything better on my wedding day!”
Michelle & Ross
wedding at The Morton Arboretum, Lisle IL
“Let me start off by saying Agnes Malorny’s photography is amazing. She photographed my wedding at the Morton Arboretum and she also shot our engagement photos about a year prior and she truly blew us away with her talent. She has the ability to capture raw moments which translate through each individual photo. Additionally she made my husband and I feel completely comfortable, which is why she is truly an expert in her field. I originally found out about Agnes because I was looking through one of my friend’s wedding photos on Facebook and the images were breathtaking – that is when I knew I had to have her for our wedding. Our wedding pictures turned out to be perfect and I had no doubt in my mind that they would be. All in all, I would highly recommend Agnes Malorny to anyone looking for a professional photographer that is passionate about her work. I know Agnes will be our photographer for years to come.”

“Can’t imagine our wedding without Agnes!
We used Agnes Malorny for our wedding photography and she was excellent throughout the whole process. From our very first meeting, it was clear that she loves weddings; she showed us albums of her previous work and was always so enthusiastic about our wedding. Agnes was great about keeping in touch during the planning process of the wedding and sent us a sheet to fill out with important pictures we wanted to make sure we got during the day. Agnes was helpful in deciding what time we would do first look and helping with our day-of timeline. On the day, Agnes and her assistant Margret were super friendly and professional. They took loads of pictures and were fairly discreet during the ceremony and reception – we hardly knew they were there! We also liked that they didn’t mind other friends and family taking pictures when we had assembled together for professional group shots. Agnes had great suggestions of where to take pictures and since we were at a public location, she did a great job of finding out of the way places, as well as asking people to get out the shot when we were in more public areas.
We couldn’t imagine having anyone else take our wedding pictures, and there is nothing about working with Agnes that we would change. We would recommend Agnes for any professional photography, and look forward to working with her again in the future!”

wedding at The Hyatt Lodge, Oak Brook IL
“We couldn’t have been more thrilled with the professionalism, care, support, and exquisite photographs that we experienced and received in working with Agnes and her team. I would recommend her to anyone including my nearest and dearest friends. I can truly say that my pictures told the story of our wedding and I will treasure them always. We searched around a lot before choosing Agnes. She was the best value of any out there, although knowing what I know now, I would have paid twice the amount that we did for the quality that we received. Cheers to Agnes!”
Bridget + Brian
wedding at Danada House, Wheaton IL
“Fabulous, breathtaking photos and great to work with! Agnes was amazing to work with. She is prompt in replying to emails and will reach out to you as the event approaches. We had our engagement, wedding and first anniversary photos taken by Agnes and I still get compliments from family and friends. She really knows how to capture the moments of your day. I love the sneak peek a couple weeks after the event and we didn’t have to wait much longer after that to see the final proofs. I highly recommend any newly engaged couples to set up a meeting and you will see for yourself how fabulous she is.”

“Brilliant Artist, Journalistic Eye, Photography Ninja!!
Agnes is the best photographer I have encountered in the many weddings I have attended or participated in, both in the artistic quality of her work and her service-oriented approach.
She first covered my sister’s wedding in 2006. We found her after scouring many different websites and top photographers, but were blown away by the quality of her shots. She and her team are incredibly agile – getting the perfect shots and capturing the height of emotions. From details to landscapes to portraits, she is simply brilliant.
Thus, when it came to my wedding events, I knew I wanted her to photograph both ceremonies. (We had one wedding in Chicago and one in Argentina.) I wanted to fly her down for Argentina, but she would have been 8.5 months pregnant, so she couldn’t do it. Still, she helped us think through the types of shots we liked, most important moments to capture, and general style for BOTH the Chicago and Argentina weddings. When it came to the Chicago wedding, she shot our entire day-long even–and even an event the day before–all while 8 months pregnant. She was still dressed in black, stealthily sneaking around like a photography ninja. Barely anyone noticed she was around and, as a result, she got THE BEST shots.
I have recommended Agnes to every friend who has been looking for a photographer – be it for a wedding, engagement session, special event, or portrait. Agnes will always have a special place in our family’s heart.”

“Agnes is AMAZING
Since our first meeting with Agnes, she has been incredible. She listened to all of our ideas and made suggestions when we needed some inspiration. She has the perfect balance of personalism and professionalism, and made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. It is truly apparent how much Agnes loves what she does.
On our wedding day, Agnes and Margaret captured all the moments beautifully while at the same time making sure we got all the specific shots we had planned prior. My wife and I never had to worry about anything as they had everything under control.
We’ve received countless, and I mean countless, positive words about our wedding photos. And thanks to Agnes and Margaret, we have so many captured moments from our wedding that we’ll never forget.”
Brittany + Gregory
wedding at The Arrowhead Country Club, Wheaton IL
“From the minute we got engaged, I started the hunt for a photographer to capture our day. We ended up meeting with 5 photographers before we met Agnes. The minute we got there my husband and I were impressed, we immediately knew she was going to be our photographer! She literally had hundreds of prints and many albums to look at all her work and let us take our time and enjoy her amazing work! No one has packages like she has and my husband and I signed with her that night!
Our engagement session was beautiful and both her and Margaret spent over 3 hours with us capturing and laughing with us! Our wedding day was an absolute dream and Agnes and Margaret captured it perfectly! We could not be more happy with our photos and she got them done in 6 weeks we couldn’t believe it! We are receiving so many compliments and had so much fun reliving our wedding through our photos!
Agnes is not only talented but an amazing person and friend and she truly just loves what she does and gets to know who you both are so she could capture the both of you perfectly!”

“Lifetime of Memories
My wedding day like many others is special, and quite honestly that day goes so fast and you barely see what happens because you are busy getting married. With Agnes, she made that time stand still with her photos. She got pictures I would never have thought of capturing. Also, she got pictures of people that are special to me in such a real candid way.
Agnes not only captured our day but like I mentioned above, made time stand still. I usually hate all pictures of me, she made it hard to choose. She takes pictures of your day or moments in your life like it is her wedding or her family. The passion comes out when you see the photos. Priceless.
She has become a big part of my growing family as well. She has capture moments of my son and daughter growing up. The best part is that she catches me and my family for who we are and catches the personalities of my children that again makes time stand still. God only knows times flies and it has been a blessing to find someone so talented and creative capture moments in my life that I do not want to forget.
You will not be disappointed, for Agnes catches you and your family in the most real moments and almost like a journal of your day. In my case not only my wedding day but my children’s lives.”

“Fantastic Wedding Photography!
Agnes is a wonderful photographer. My sister had used her for her wedding (7 years before ours). As soon as I we got engaged, I knew which photographer I wanted because I absolutely loved what she had done for my sister. My husband and I wanted very natural looking photos, which is hard to come by for me because I don’t feel very natural in front of a camera. But Agnes made my husband and I feel extremely comfortable. We had a blast at our engagement session. Before the wedding, we met with Agnes to look at where we would take photos prior to the ceremony and she even scoped out locations for us. Agnes and her assistant were with us the entire day of our wedding and even stayed late because our reception ended up going longer. Agnes captured amazing shots of our entire day. She has the utmost professionalism, gives great recommendations of locations and poses, works with you to truly understand what you want, and we never felt like the camera was in our face on the day of the wedding. The turnaround time for the photos was also really quick (we took longer just to narrow down the choices from all the beautiful photos) and she made us a gorgeous album. We would definitely recommend Agnes Malorny for someone looking for a reliable, personable and artistic wedding photographer!”
