We are a lifestyle wedding and portrait photography studio based in Chicago, IL. We define our style of shooting as being natural and romantic; a perfect balance of photojournalistic and editorial. With a background in both the commercial and fashion industries, we offer a unique style of documenting weddings that feels timeless and pure. We focus on directing our couples in a way that puts them at ease in front of the camera while truly capturing the joy and beauty of the love between them.
When hiring a photographer, you are looking for someone to capture more than just the details of your wedding day. You are looking to capture those in-between moments, the way you clasp hands while turning to walk down the aisle together for the first time as husband and wife, the way you whisper to each other during your first dance and the tears of joy on the faces of your family and friends as you commit to love and honor each other for the rest of your lives. It is the day you want to remember forever and each and every photo will be an important part in telling the story of this special day for years to come. We are honored that you would consider working with us and our team!
A lot has happened since we, Matt and Stevi, started Averyhouse back in 2008 as a husband and wife photography team. In 2010 we welcomed Smilebooth to the family as our sister photo booth company. We welcomed our beautiful son, Rhodes, to our family in 2012 and during that same year we were beyond thrilled to welcome lead photographer, Vanessa Wheeler, to our team. Vanessa also manages our studio and photographs our lifestyle portrait sessions.
Our storefront studio at 2946 N Lincoln Ave. #1, in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood is open by appointment only. Send us a note if you are interested in meeting to discuss your photography needs for your wedding, portraits or any other creative project you are working on! We'd love to meet you!
