“I got EXACTLY what I wanted for my wedding photos and more…I still cry looking at my photos and the moments she caught.”
“Hilda is the definition of exceptional customer service.”
“I don’t know what I would have done without Hilda on my big day. Not only did she capture the story of my wedding (I was extremely against posed shots), but she and her assistant were just there for me. They knew exactly what I wanted and made sure I got it.”
“I don’t ever recall a time where she didn’t answer calls or emails same day.”
“She has an amazing talent and lives out her passion. She would never give you work she is not happy with, only the best!”
“So sweet, was a calming force...just amazing.”
“If there was a moment that we wanted a specific picture all we had to do was blink and Hilda or her assistant were right there. Not sure how they did it. We think both of them are ninjas. We don’t know how they got around the venue as fast as we did without anyone noticing. Simply amazing.”
“We had a lot of DIY touches, and I was THRILLED with how every small thing was recorded. Impressively, in a creative way!”
“Hilda is the best in Chicago, hands down. We recommend Hilda to everyone we run into.”

What makes a wedding memorable for you?The connection some families have is truly amazing...I love it when people put past differences aside and just enjoy the day. One of my favorite moments was the bride’s dad watching his current wife and his ex-wife dancing together; he had a huge smile on his face.
What have weddings taught you?Patience. Sometimes things don’t go the way they should, and I’ve learned just to go with it and breathe.
What is the best advice you give a couple when planning their wedding?Remember it’s about you and not the ‘stuff’...you’re having a wedding to bring two families together to celebrate your love and commitment to each other. No one is going to care that the napkins were the wrong color.
