tell your stories for life.
Chicago-based wedding photographer providing photographs that will

Delivering a premium, high quality experience, with photographs matched to every core memory (and missing memory, because #shots)

I want that for you, too.

You want more than just a gallery of posed photos. You want a keepsake that transports you back to each moment of your wedding day. To remember the emotion you felt as you vowed to forever. To relive your first kiss married. To recall the joy of celebrating with all your loved ones. To look back on the big laughs and unexpected tears. You want to create living, lasting memories you can enjoy and share for years to come.

An Investment to Last a Lifetime

Your Story Is My Passion

A Photographer that Treats You Like Family

You know how you would do anything for your family? That’s how I view my clients. From buying new pants for a groomsman when his trousers ripped to sourcing last minute orange flowers that were missing from a bridal bouquet, I’ve truly done and seen it all. 

Taking photos should be fun! I bring the energy with upbeat music (s/o to my portable speaker), my high-energy personality, and ensure you feel comfortable and looking your absolute best through every step of the process.

It’s my mission to preserve every memory from your day. For me, that means candid and posed photos of you and your significant other, champagne pops with your crew, the first look with a parent, dance floor photos of you getting down with your high school besties, and formal family photos you’ll treasure and frame forever.

Photos that Capture Every Core Moment

An Unforgettable Experience



I’ve loved telling stories from a young age, a passion passed down from my late father, Harry Williams. I founded Photographs by Teresa in 2013 and have since captured and preserved hundreds of peoples’ stories through expressive photos and retelling PBT love stories. It’s my mission to honor my dad’s memory by preserving yours.  

“Teresa was truly the best wedding photographer we could've asked for. She was organized, responsive and so good at her job. She listened to what we wanted while also providing additional inspiration, and the end results were just incredible. What is most impressive about Teresa is her ability to make everyone comfortable -- my husband and I aren't necessarily shy, but I am not very comfy in front of the camera. Well, an afternoon with Teresa will have you feeling like a model! Her bubbly, infectious personality provided us and our families and bridal parties with the energy we needed to come out of our shells -- I would recommend her to ANYONE getting married in the Chicago area and beyond.”

Praise for photographs by Teresa:

“If you're lucky enough to snag Teresa for your wedding day, I guarantee she will be the most fun vendor you work with! Teresa has such an infectious personality you can't help but be in a good mood around her. She's incredibly bubbly and the absolute best hype woman. Even if you feel uncomfortable in front of a camera, Teresa knows how to make you relax and she even has some fun and unique prompts to help you loosen up and get those incredible shots you see all over her Instagram. She's so so talented at what she does, I can't recommend her enough!!”

Praise for photographs by Teresa:

“Working with Teresa was an absolute dream! Outside of her being the most genuinely kind human you'll ever meet, she's absolutely amazing at her job. My husband and I hired Teresa for both engagement photos and wedding photos and it was the best decision ever! Before this, my husband and I had never taken professional photos so we were both nervous\unsure of what to expect but working Teresa put all our concerns at ease. She makes you feel so comfortable and makes it so fun you forget you're taking photos. I like to call her the ultimate hype woman because there's not a minute she isn't hyping you up and making you laugh! The pictures we received were so beautiful and Teresa perfectly captured who we are and all of our special moments. She is truly the brightest light - there's no other way to describe her, and the energy and passion she brings to making your day so special. If she is available on your date, book her!”
