Gress enjoys shooting all types wedding ceremonies, parties, celebrations, receptions, and portraits in Chicago, Illinois and across the Midwest. When Marriage Equality became law Gress became a favorite of the gay community, but he has been a photographer for traditional and non traditional weddings for almost two decades. He's an expert portrait photographer and he loves capturing candid, photojournalistic images of couples & their guests during the private emotional moments and during the public cornerstone moments that make each wedding day special. Other Chicago wedding photographers claim to be wedding photojournalists, but Gress has had his work published in periodicals around the world. While other Chicago wedding photographers take weeks and months to deliver images to their clients, Gress will send you a gallery link within days of the wedding. With his exquisite artistry for composition, color and light, along with his natural unobtrusive approach, John will capture all the intimate moments that make up your special day.
