Don’t take our word for it. See what our clients have to say about their experience with us!


Bokéh Studios did an incredible job! The price was amazing especially since I was on a tight budget for my wedding. They set up a consultation prior to the photo shoot to make sure we were all on the same page with wants and needs for our photos which was extremely helpful to ensure we were satisfied. They are both so down to earth and so much fun to work with! The photos turned out more then perfect. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you guys so much!



Bokéh Studios is hands-down AMAZING! We were setting up for our daughter’s 1st birthday photo shoot and they were extremely helpful with location ideas as well as photo ideas and props. The photos were outstanding as they captured extremely beautiful and candid shots of our daughter with her older brother. They were extremely friendly, warm, and welcoming and we couldn’t have asked for more out of our experience. We can’t wait to get together with them again soon!



We were instantly impressed with Abhishek and Payal with their laid back and chilled way of working. We instantly felt comfortable with them, which is really important for the day when you’re trying to look your best and want them to capture the best shots! We were SO uber excited when the photos came back, and watching them together was as emotional as the day itself. We cannot thank you enough for capturing our photos the way you did.



My husband and I worked with Bokéh Studios for our wedding day photos! It was a really wonderful experience from beginning to end. To start, we met with Payal and Abhishek a few times before our big day. We talked about our vision for our photos and what locations around the city we wanted to visit. Not only did they listen to our vision, but they also had ideas of their own. They were also able to get to know us and our relationship, which I thought was extremely valuable so that they knew what would work day of and what would not. I also really appreciated the research they did on the venue ahead of time in order to ensure our photos turned out well. Not only are they extremely professional and good at what they do, they are also genuine, nice people which to me is invaluable when working with a business. It was a joy to have them along for the wild ride of our wedding day! Thank you for the beautiful wedding photos and making the experience so easy and pleasurable!



If you want artistic and beautiful mementos of your wedding, Abhishek and Payal are the photographers for you! Beyond being great people who make the planning process easy and are always patient and available, the photos they take are amazing. They captured the moments and details of our wedding in a way that truly showcased the essence of us as a couple, our love, our families and the wedding and reception. I couldn’t be more pleased with the images, their quality, and the wonderful service Bokéh Studios provided.



Our shoot with Bokéh Studios was the best portrait experience we ever had! Myself, my husband and our 18 month old daughter were visiting from out of town; we had an idea of what we wanted, but Bokéh Studios was able to take our ideas and match it with the perfect locations in the city. Working with small children is never easy, but they had endless patience with our daughter as we had to stop, run around and snack. The time spent was shooting was super enjoyable and not at all stressful as family portraits can be sometimes. They were lightening fast with their turn around and we were still on our vacation when we got the proofs from our shoot which made me so happy! The final images were exactly what I had in my head—they are so talented in shooting and in editing. Bokéh Studios was able to capture those memories for us and my favorite picture from the shoot now sits on our mantle in our living room.



WOW is all I can say. Abhishek and Payal were the only part of my wedding in July that was on time and ran smoothly all day. They are wonderful, charming professionals. They were on time, polite, and very creative in their shots. We had two photographers, so we were able to capture a lot of in-the-moment images and the traditional portrait pictures that I really wanted. I was particularly impressed with their ability to multi-task. Wrangling family members isn’t easy, but they never lost their cool demeanor or got pushy with us. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.



Abhishek and Payal were a dream to work with! They did an amazing job shooting our wedding at the Cheney Mansion and were incredibly responsive, friendly, and professional throughout the entire process. We were both incredibly happy with the pictures and wedding album we received—they did a wonderful job of capturing every moment of our day!



We loved how our pictures turned out from Bokéh Studios. They captured perfectly our love for our family and the beautiful city of Chicago.



Abhishek and Payal have been terrific to work with in every facet of our wedding planning process. We first contacted them on a Friday evening past business hours and they got back to us within the hour. Their communication is truly unparalleled. We first met with them for a consultation and they made us feel like we were old friends. So far we have only had our engagement photos taken, but they turned out great! Abhishek made us feel like we were just out for a walk in the city. We can’t wait to see the great work they do on the day of our wedding. To plan a wedding can have its difficult moments, but if you book Bokéh Studios as your photographers it most certainly will not be one of them. They are amazing!



Abhishek and Payal of Bokéh Studios were an absolute joy to work with. From the start of our time with them, they were always friendly and put our wedding questions and jitters at ease! One aspect of Bokéh studios that we loved was how flexible and accommodating they were. They were extremely flexible when scheduling (and rescheduling – due to our crazy schedule) our engagement shoot. Our wedding took place out of state, and they were quick to work out all the details with us leading up to our big day—we couldn’t be more thankful!



Working with Bokéh Studios was one of the highlights of our wedding. Both Abhishek and Payal are passionate about what they do and ensuring the bride, groom, bridesmaids, or groomsmen are happy. We had the pleasure of getting our engagement session and wedding photos from them. During both shoots we loved how easy-going and receptive they both were. We often had quick ideas of places for a photo or a certain angle and they were always open to just going with it. We really appreciated it. In fact, our favorite moment from our wedding day was after the ceremony when we went to take portraits in downtown Arlington Heights. We had so much fun just chatting and walking around and being creative with lighting and different places. We felt like we could truly just be ourselves. They are down-to-earth and focused on the experience for us and not just the photos which are amazing and speak for themselves. We would highly recommend Bokéh Studios! They are great with communication and respond to all questions quickly. And they are by far the most affordable photographers I could find in the Chicagoland area for the time of work, skill and talent they provide.
