Based out of Chicago, Bokéh Studios is a husband and wife team recognized for their work shooting engagements, weddings and special events for over a decade. Their years of dedication to the art of professional photography have been noticed and awarded on national levels.


We are Payal and Abhishek Patel, a married photography team that works with awesome and unique couples in Chicago. We love getting to know new people and providing them with great photos of their wedding, engagement or special event. It’s important to us to bring out the best in our couples and let their personalities and styles shine. The way we work is personable, laid-back, and a little non-traditional.

Telling a special story is a gift and an art we cherish. Through our passion for creativity, we uniquely capture couples’ stories about one of the biggest days of their lives: their wedding day. We thrive on building relationships with our couples through our recognizable photography so we can showcase their distinctive personalities. When you work with Bokéh Studios, we tailor your experience to fit your vision. Create your own story.


Our goal as artists is to craft timeless, creative photographs and a genuine portrayal of your wedding celebration as it unfolds. As narrators, we want to show the emotion of the day through amazing portraits and breathtaking use of light. We have years of experience working together as a team. A seamless, unspoken connection. We are each other’s doubles and believe this is key to achieving true wedding photojournalistic coverage. From our emotional getting-ready photos to our breathtaking portraits, your wedding will be photographed just as you imagined!


We would feel truly blessed to be apart of your special occasion. What we can say…we are romantics!
