A little about Liz

Here's a short version of MY Story.

IF YOU HAVE MET ME, YOU KNOW I'M UNAPOLOGETICALLY QUIRKY, I LAUGH A LOT, I WEAR MY HEART ON MY SLEEVE, AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE WHAT I GET TO DO FOR A LIVING.  AND YOU KNOW WHAT, I CAN GUARANTEE YOU WILL SEE THAT LOVE ALL DAY.  DON'T BELIVE ME?  READ THESE KIND WORDS HERE!  

I SPECIALIZE IN WEDDINGS, COUPLES, AND FAMLIES, AND THE COOLEST THING IS GETTING TO WORK WITH PAST COUPLES AFTER THEY START THEIR FAMILY.

I'M A SISTER TO 3 LOVELY LADIES, AN AUNTIE BEBBIE TO 9 NIECES & NEPHEWS (that includes 2 dogs), A GIRLFRIEND TO THE BEST GUY IN THE WORLD, A CHICAGOAN WHO HATES WINTER, AND A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO LOVES HER JOB. THAT ABOUT SUMS IT UP RIGHT?  NO WAY!  JUST LIKE YOU, THERE IS MUCH MORE TO MY LIFE THAN A FEW BULLET POINTS CAN LIST.  WHILE I CAN'T JUMP OUT OF THIS SCREEN, GIVE YOU A HUG, AND LAUGH ABOUT HOW AWKWARD IT MAY BE TO MEET SOMEONE NEW, I CAN GIVE YOU A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT MAKES ME ME BEFORE ACTUALLY MEETING YOU

 * I'm a red wine girl all the way and always up for meeting up for a tasting to chat about your wedding. Meet me in Napa? ;)  

 * I have a SMALL obsession with elephants and I don't care who knows it.   (I mean, Jeffrey knows it with how many elephant figurines are currently in our house.) One day, I hope to travel to an elephant sanctuary and volunteer my time. 

 * I LOVE traveling, especially with my Jeffrey, and we cannot wait to plan our next road trip soon.  Who would've thought I would love camping?  Check out our travels on the blog

 * I love movies and binge watching, well, pretty much anything.  I always have something on when I'm editing...and it's usually a movie I've seen 100 times, but who cares. ;) I'm always looking for new recommendations.  What should I watch next?

 * I'm about to start my 10th...yes 10TH...wedding season and it still gives me all the butterflies.

PHOTOGRAPHY SHOULD BE A FUN EXPERIENCE, NOT JUST SOMETHING YOU PAY FOR TO GET UPDATED PHOTOS.  THE PERSON BEHIND THE CAMERA SHOULD BE SOMEONE YOU TRUST, ENJOY BEING AROUND, AND WHO GENUINELY CARES ABOUT YOUR TIME.  YOU ARE UNIQUE.  SO SHOULD YOUR PICTURES BE. 

MOST IMPORTANTLY, I WANT TO HAVE FUN AND CREATE THE BEST PICTURES POSSIBLE FOR YOU! (Even if that means climbing fire escapes, falling in mud, running around in rain storms, or generally just stepping a BIT outside the box).  AND YES, ALL OF THOSE THINGS HAPPENED.

MY GOAL EVERY DAY FOR MY BUSINESS IS BEST DESCRIBED BY THE GREAT MAYA ANGELOU : "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

KIND WORDS...

"The perfect photographer for your big day

Elizabeth was such a joy to work with! From the first consult, she really took the time to get to know us, which made us feel so much more comfortable and allowed our personalities to show through in the pictures Elizabeth took.

Elizabeth was so patient in capturing all of the group shots we wanted and had such a great eye for utilizing the different venues we used in the best way possible. She had us laughing the whole time and the pictures came out candid and natural (while still looking professional and of the highest quality).

We can't recommend Elizabeth enough! If you are looking for the most personable, creative, and skilled photographer for your big day, look no further!"

Katie + Matt

"Liz was amazing! She did our engagement and wedding photos. At first, I wasn’t going to do engagement photos but Liz said this is great practice for the big day and since we haven’t had professional photos taken before we decided to do it. I was not disappointed! Our photos turned out amazing, so that made me feel so confident and excited for our wedding photos. Thank you Liz for your dedication, professionalism, and hard work! We love our photos and could not of picked a better photographer to photograph our big day!"

Jordin + Nick

"Elizabeth Greve is, by far, one of the best photographers that we have ever worked with. She is friendly, personable and amazing at her job. She has a great perspective with the camera and there is no doubt that we will be enlarging some of her photos to hang in our home. Based on a friends referral, we looked at her website and really got the feeling that she took the time to connect with her clients because their emotions came through in all of her photos. Knowing that your wedding day is a mix of every emotion, we wanted someone who was able to capture that…and Liz was that someone. From having her capture the proposal, joining us to scout the venue, being part of the wedding morning prep, to the final photos of our day, Liz was so much fun to be around. She managed our huge families for family photos (80+ people) and even our rowdy friends at the reception, with ease. She stood in front of a cab to fix the veil and climbed a fire escape to the roof of an 18 floor building, just to get the shot…shots that other photographers might not have ventured to try. If you are reading this and are still searching for a photographer, please stop. Liz is one of the best in the business."

"Liz photographed our wedding day this past September and we had a wonderful time shooting with her. She has incredible creative direction and perspective, with the ability to translate what I would consider mundane scenery into awesome photos. She's easy to work with, provides high quality results and is just all-around a great person. We are extremely satisfied with the final delivery of photos. Highly recommended!"

"I'm not sure any facebook review could ever do justice to the AMAZING photographer and person that is Elizabeth Greve. I wish I could give her 5 million stars. Being a same sex couple, my wife and I were very picky when choosing vendors. We didn't want to make anyone feel uncomfortable, and of course we did not want to be uncomfortable on our wedding day. When we first met with Liz, all of those fears vanished. It was like we knew her for years. Over a year ago, we sat in a coffee shop looking at her gorgeous photos, talking about our vision with her. Now, a year later I can say that she made that vision come true and so much more. The pictures she takes are breathtaking! And the best part is - nothing is forced. All of the photos look so natural because she makes you feel at ease. It's kind of hard to be rigid and forced looking when your photographer is laying on the ground, upside-down, in shrubbery to get the shot you want lol. Her attention to detail is amazing and she has captured moments that we will cherish forever. My wife and I feel SO lucky that we somehow stumbled upon Liz's website one day while researching photographers. Now we have a forever photographer. Sorry Liz, you are stuck with us   Since booking her for our wedding, we have also used her for engagement photos and even for a family session. To no surprise, ALL of the photos have turned out to be beautiful. If you are on the fence, trust me on this one. Elizabeth Greve is the best of the best. We love you Liz!!! Thank you for welcoming us with open arms. Thank you for going on this journey with us. Thank you for taking amazing pictures. Thank you for being our friend "

"Liz is amazing! Her obvious skill and artistry made our photos such a treasured possession and did a truly incredible job of capturing all of the joy and beauty of our favorite day. She had a good challenge with us with a large family and a wedding party of 24 (!) and she made it all look easy and every picture is awesome! She also is a never-ending font of positivity, energy, and calm that kept everything running on time and made pictures so much FUN! Some of my husband’s and my favorite memories from our wedding were the moments we had with Liz. Liz, thank you SO much!"

Caitlin + Chris

"I booked Liz for my wedding photography and I am so happy I did! She is so fun to work with and makes you feel so comfortable. I have seen a couple sneak peak photos and I am already obsessed with them! I can't wait to see the rest! She is truly great at what she does!"

Alexa & Kyle

"Liz shot our wedding and my wife and I could not have asked for a more incredible photographer. She was creative, flexible, energetic, and fun while constantly showing her professionalism. She seamlessly and quickly organized large groups for family photos after the ceremony and the bridal party had an absolute blast shooting pictures before the ceremony and during the cocktail hour. I cannot express enough how comfortable and friendly Liz is to work with; she felt more like a friend than a vendor throughout the whole process. She graciously met with my wife and I at the venue a few weeks before the wedding in order to scout photo locations and immediately we could tell her enthusiasm and excitement for the wedding; she truly loves what she does and it comes out with how she interacts with you and from the absolute highest quality of her pictures. Speaking of pictures, from the ones we have seen to date Liz perfectly captured the atmosphere and tone of our wedding day. My wife and I could not have picked a more perfect photographer for our wedding and will be encouraging any family or friend getting married in the Chicagoland area to use Elizabeth Greve Photography."

Ali & Brian

"Liz is always amazing to work with! She just shot our wedding and we could not have asked for a more incredible photographer to work with. She had all of us laughing and I know her photos will be amazing! We have also worked with her for our engagement photos which we used for our guest book and to hang around our house. She has a great eye and I can't wait to work with her again!"

Dani + Nick

"We booked Liz for our wedding and engagement photos.  Today we just got our engagement photos and they are everything we could have ever wanted. Liz is so personable and makes you feel so comfortable and makes your day so special! We will use her for more of our life's milestones . She's amazing!"

Becca + Jason

"Liz has done my engagement, wedding, and now newborn/family photos. She always exceeds my expectations! Liz is creative and catches the raw, intimate moments most photographers miss. Very professional and a joy to work with, she makes any session fun, memorable, and special!"

Bri + Jay

"I had Elizabeth Greve take photos for my wedding, and she was nothing but wonderful! She made us feel so comfortable and is incredibly fun and sweet. I highly recommend Elizabeth Greve Photography!!"

Carla + J.R.

"Elizabeth is awesome!!!!! Not only is she one of the sweetest people, her photos are amazing!!!! Love her!!!"

Ashley + Michael

"I had Liz as my photographer for my engagement shoot and my wedding. I am in LOVE with all of the amazing photographs she took. Liz also makes your day fun and carefree. She is well organized and is able to direct everyone with ease. On top of producing a wonderful finished product her pricing is the most reasonable for this style of photography that I could find after extensive research. I would recommend her to family, friends, and strangers alike!"
