Hello friend! I’m John Foley, a wedding & portrait photographer from Chicago, IL. As much as I love being a photographer, it’s truly amazing to be a husband to my beautiful wife, Jenny and a father to my precious daughter who's now a toddler. We’re currently expecting our second child and I’m so excited! Also, can’t forget our two spoiled dogs, Maui and Zella.
I grew up in the South Suburbs and after graduating from the University of Illinois, I moved to Chicago. Over the years I’ve lived in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, and Wicker Park. Some of my favorite things outside of photography are tacos, old fashions, and barbecue. In 2016, my wife and I decided it was time to move out of the city and into the burbs. It's weird when you can't sleep at night because it's too quiet. However, our daughter definitely makes sure it doesn't stay that way for long!
Photography has been a passion of mine for a long time. I absolutely love preserving special moments through photos to be cherished for a lifetime. This passion and love I have for this craft can be seen in my work. I'm always working towards capturing the most beautiful images possible. I accomplish this by using high quality gear in conjunction with my extensive knowledge and understanding of composition, lighting, posing, and advanced post processing techniques.
A memorable picture isn't just taken, its made. I work hard to not only capture the moment, but to do so in a unique and artistic way. When looking at a picture brings you back to that moment and you feel what was felt during that point in time, well that’s what you call a great image - which is my goal every time I pick up my camera.
I specialize in wedding & portrait photography. However, in my free time, I enjoy shooting landscapes, having fun photo shoots with my daughter, and traveling. If you would like to learn more, feel free to contact me - I would love to chat!
