Hadassah B.


Chicago Based Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer

hey y'all!

I'm Hadassah!

I’ll start off by saying, I’m not nearly as intimidating as my name. In winter of 2017, I married my best friend & now we live in a sweet little suburb just an hour outside of Chicago enjoying the views & peacefulness of living a bit more rural. Our fuzzy puppies Willow & Watson, (Wheaten Terriers who think they're human) love it too!

14 years of wedding experience has prepared me to capture your most cherished moments and turn them into heirlooms. I look forward to learning more about you & your love.

Hadassah is a fantastic photographer. My husband and I booked her for maternity photos and they are absolutely incredible! She picked a fantastic location that I never would have thought of on my own, and she went above and beyond to capture all the perfect photos. My husband and I usually feel so awkward in front of a camera but she made us feel very comfortable and guided us through various poses with ease. We are doing our newborn session with her soon and I cannot wait! I definitely recommend her for any of your photography needs :)

Hadassah is a dream to work with! She is so talented, so kind, and so much fun to be around. Hadassah did our engagement shoot and wedding, and the photos are incredible. She is so easy to collaborate with and took the time to get to know my now husband and I so that she was able to really capture our personalities in the photos. She let us be us. There were no corny poses and nothing looked forced. Hadassah was always available to talk and helped us to find the best locations for our photos. Hadassah worked really well with our other vendors and helped make everything run smoothly. I was referred to Hadassah by another friend who had used her, and I am so incredibly grateful for the recommendation!! THANK YOU!!

A Dream to work with

... This girl is seriously talented She is great at scouting out cool locations, she is a master at capturing candid moments and getting the lighting to look just right. Not only is she super talented with the camera but she has a really amazing quality that I have always felt most photographers lack - and that is her ability to make her subjects feel totally at ease in front of her lense. I have always personally felt uncomfortable having my picture taken but I don't feel that way with Hadassah :)

Hadassah is cool and calm and patient and doesn't get her feathers ruffled over tears, toddler tantrums, or 3 month old baby blow outs! She has managed to capture some of my favorite family pictures...


Hadassah is our new go-to photographer!

Hadassah was so easy to work with - she was organized, flexible with our schedules, and open to our ideas. We had a non-traditional wedding, but Hadassah was game for anything! Hadassah's warm personality made it easy for us to relax and feel comfortable posing for photos. She listened to things that were important to us and was able to provide suggestions for photo ideas. Hadassah captured the fun and candid moments of all our guests and paid attention to all the details. She was patient and provided a calming presence during the whole event. We're so thankful that we got to work with Hadassah and look forward to working with her in the future.

Easy to Work With

After sitting down and talking with Hadassah, my husband and I quickly realized we had found our wedding photographer. Hadassah was warm and engaging. She was not only passionate about her work, but passionate about making us comfortable and happy. Hadassah was extremely accommodating and attentive to our needs and desires. She took the time to detail our itinerary and note any potential conflicts. The pictures turned out amazing! We couldn't be happier. Hadassah managed to capture the small special details and emotions beautifully. She just hand delivered the wedding album of our dreams, our first family heirloom, and we are in love with it. I look forward to reconnecting with Hadassah in the future to document life's next milestones. Thank you, thank you, thank you Hadassah!

We got back from our weekend getaway and finally got to open up our album. It is beautiful! The album quality is amazing and I love that the pages are so thick! It has brought us many smiles and good chuckles. We will cherish this forever! Thank you so much! 

... I have so few pictures of my of my own parents before they had kids, I'm so glad that my parents had an album of their wedding day. [Our] album is now an heirloom and we are thankful that we have this treasure to share with our Moonbear.
