Chicago Photographer – Years of Diverse Experience

Shane Lawrence Photography is the culmination of countless relationships, photographs and memories.

I photographed my first wedding in early 2000.

I have worked for large and small wedding studios covering up to 60 weddings a year.

This frenetic volume in a team environment added incredible depth and experience.

Working for some of Chicago’s largest newspapers developed skills many wedding pros do not have.

In 2011 I launched out on my own and have not looked back since.

A Few Kind Words

Shane has photographed every stage of my family’s growth, from my wife’s first pregnancy in 2012 to my second son’s newborn photos in 2016.

His photographs are something we display proudly all over our home and keepsakes we can’t wait to pass down to our kids.

In fact, the only reason he didn’t also photograph my wedding was because we didn’t know him at the time, but we wish we did! – Brendan


I would love to be your Chicago Photographer!
