At Day1wedding we love what we do for a living - We capture memories to last a lifetime. We believe in our art, our vision.
We also know that personal relationships are the key to success. This is YOUR day filled with your memories. We would love the opportunity to be the photographers that capture those memories forever.

We strive to offer the best photography available, but realize our vision is nothing without you and your satisfaction. Our greatest joy would be for your grandchildren to frame your wedding portrait.


Our principal photographer, Michael R. Schmidt, has been a professional photographer for the past 12 years. His work appears in the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, regional and national magazines and the wire services. He's an active photojournalist taking assignments in Chicago and beyond. You can view examples of his photojournalism by clicking the 'non-wedding' gallery.


We look forward to hearing from you and thanks for looking,

The Day1weddings team
