My love for photography stems from this full circle moment, when I was finally able to fuel my creativity and help people celebrate their love in front of the camera.
I'm Yeri! As far back as I can remember, I was the kid with the camera. For years, all I wanted to do was pursue a creative career. I was sort of torn though, I wanted to be creative and help people but couldn't figure out what to do.
After going into the nonprofit sector, I started working for an amazing organization that supports underfunded schools in North Chicago. I was in charge of planning school events, like family nights and parent-teacher conferences. Life surprises you sometimes though and everything changed when my director told me to start taking photos at these events.
Something happens to me behind the camera where my energy just sky rockets. We jam out to music and let loose. All you need to do is have fun and leave the rest to me. I make sure to capture all your best angles, making sure your hair is looking amazing, and most importantly, you having FUN!
From the very beginning she was SO comfortable to be around. She made our engagement shoot so much fun and really captured our personalities. When the wedding day came we had some unexpected rain and had to move our ceremony/reception indoors which was a total bummer. BUT Yeri and Heber (her husband) uplifted our moods and we were able to still get most of our photos outside. Besides being incredibly talented photographers, they are just so much fun to be around. Even our wedding guests raved about how awesome they were. I'd give Yeri Photo 10/5 stars if I could." | Emma + Jorge
Yeri was AMAZING!! I walked in not knowing her other than the little we chatted about what to expect at the session... I walked out feeling like I have made a friend! She is so personable and wants to help you strive as a photographer! She wants the best for You! I walked in nervous and not knowing very much of anything and I walked out with a whole new outlook on photography! She was so wonderful, I can't stress that enough. WHEN you book her, you will LOVE everything about her and her photos will make you love her even more." | Chelsea
She fully acknowledges that not everyone enjoys photo sessions (awkward husbands/boyfriends, the grumpy toddler, etc.) and is so down to earth about it! In other words, her shining personality was well-received by my husband and my toddler. My son has never behaved and giggled so much during a photo session. Yeri took photos of us at two different settings. She sent us an edited sneak peek soon after our session and a few weeks after our session, she sent me a BEAUTIFUL, BIG gallery with so many gorgeous photos. I highly recommend Yeri for your photography needs! | Kaitie + Mark
When you want to capture a moment that’s going to be memorable for the rest of your life, you want Yeri to be there. Every angle, every special moment and smile was captured. Yeri was very flexible to meet with us no matter the day and weather. We took our proposal pictures at the Botanic garden, it was raining a bit that day but we’re were able to still pull it off. If you want not just quality but someone who is going to do their best and take care of your every needs than Yeri is the photographer to choose. Any questions no matter the hour she will txt you or email you with detailed answers and suggestions. | Ernie + Kim
I have a little one and Yeri was incredibly patient with her. We got the most beautiful authentic photos. She was also very understanding in helping up find the perfect location for our photos. Not to mention we genuinely had a blast; fun music and great conversation throughout the entire shoot. My fiancé and I highly recommended Yeri! | Laurie
