After capturing over 300 weddings, we've discovered the best approach to wedding story-telling is to surround yourself with a strong and reliable team that has worked together for years. By celebrating your big day alongside our team, your love story will be more fully and honestly documented. You won't see us getting in each other's way! Not to mention, our team of filmmakers and associate photographers is comprised of some of our favorite people and the best artists we know, hands down. We seriously can't wait for you to meet them!
THE E&A TEAM
On your wedding day, the team you surround yourself with is so important, especially when it comes to photography and videography. And you can't beat a video team like this!! Phil & Jay not only know how to document weddings through emotional and captivating films, but they are just hands down some of the most genuine and fun-loving guys around. By having your wedding filmed by the EA team, you’re guaranteed to receive a cohesive documentary style between your photos and film!
Phil & Jay
Hey there! We’re Phil & Jay - also high school sweethearts (well, kind of...we’ve been best buds since high school so close enough)! We’ve been making music and art together for the past 15 years, and share an affinity for ill-advised tattoos, good whiskey, spoiled cats, and Mexican food. We also grew our passion for cinematography together, starting right out of high school.
Over the years, we’ve always kept our promise (to each other and our couples) to continue to do our absolute best and never compromise on production value. And even after documenting over 200 weddings, we continue to have the same level of excitement and dedication for every wedding we are lucky enough to capture. We still feel like the luckiest people on Earth every time someone asks us to be a part of their big day! So no matter what, wherever life takes your love, we’ll be there to tell your story.

MEET OUR ASSOCIATES:
If Ed and Aileen are booked on your date or they’re a little out of budget, no worries!! Our amazing associate photographers are here to rock your wedding photos.
Chelsea and Karina are not only incredible storytellers, but they also completely embody the E&A moment-driven wedding photography style. We are truly inspired by these two creatives, and we feel indescribably blessed to be able to call them our colleagues, as well as friends.
Hi, I’m Chelsea! It’s safe to say that I’ve always had a passion for storytelling and genuine moments. I may have started college (#GoBadgers) with ambitions to be the next great american author, but I left with a degree in Communication Arts and a love of documenting real stories through a lens. Over the past few years, I’ve been lucky enough to photograph over 60 incredible couples and, hopefully, I’ll be lucky enough to preserve your story as well!
When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me curled up on the couch with a book in my cozy Logan Square apartment. Or most likely, I’ll be binge watching Netflix with my roommate’s mustached cat curled up on my lap, booping my face for attention.
Hey! I’m Karina. I’ve always been passionate about documenting stories ever since I picked up a camera in college for a film photography class. Being able to preserve memories for people is what truly inspires me to pursue photography. From weddings to fine art prints, it’s really all about capturing moments with purpose.
I currently live in the west suburbs with my husband and two kids. And what keeps me running is ALL THE COFFEE, specifically locally roasted coffee. After going on a journey to find the perfect cafes in each Chicago neighborhood, I know some of the best places in the city. So if you have any questions from lattes to cold brews, to wedding photography, let’s grab a coffee and chat!
