Brian Milo…Wow! is really where I want to start. Brian was able to capture our wedding in the most beautiful way imaginable. It’s like, I gave my closest friend a camera and they walked around taking pictures of all the things we spent that year planning out and all of the friends and family that mean so much to us! The minor details that are so easy to overlook to someone else, Brian was able to capture. The little moments that we missed as we were walking around and talking to friends and family, he caught. Moments that are fleeting on your wedding day but, are what truly made the day so special, we have. Our pictures didn’t come back to us looking rehearsed and formal, they came back fully capturing the beauty of the day with everyone and everything that was a part of it. When we sat down with Brian to book the wedding, I knew we were going to get something special but when our pictures were given to us, I was finally able to grasp what that really meant. We have a collection of photos that will be with our family forever. The pictures still invoke the emotion of the day and they’re now priceless to us ..that’s what you truly get with Brian. He’s not just another wedding photographer, he’s an artist in the highest sense of the word and I cannot give him enough of a recommendation.
When looking for a photographer for our wedding, my criteria were that the photographer takes beautiful shots and that they are reliable. After looking through Brian’s impressive portfolio and sitting down with him to talk, we decided to hire him for our wedding and engagement shoot. Brian completely exceeded my expectations in every way possible.
Brian is not only very reliable, but he is also extremely dedicated to his work. Brian drove over 90 miles to get to our engagement photo shoot and on the way he stopped at a gas station on the south side of Chicago where he stepped on two nails, which punctured his foot. Although we insisted that we reschedule so he could take care of himself, he still arrived (early, as his style) ready to shoot our session. He carried his equipment on his back on his injured foot for miles around Chicago, and took some of the most breathtaking photos I have ever seen. Brian helped us to feel completely comfortable the entire time. I remember being impressed with how he can walk backwards, get to know us better by carrying on a conversation, assess the lighting of the area around him, all while shooting pictures that made our families cry and that we will treasure forever.
We are happier than ever that we chose Brian and his assistant Greg to shoot our wedding on July 13, 2013. On the day of my wedding, I didn’t have the time to notice all of the details that I previously spent so much time planning. Brian perfectly captured all of these details in his photographs. There were many shots that I would have never thought to ask him to take, but because of his professionalism and experience he provided these pictures for us. Most importantly, Brian captured the moments that happen so quickly.. but that I will remember forever. Because of his talent, I have photos of my mom trying not to cry as I step into my dress, my grandmother giggling with the woman who was doing her make up, my groom’s first teary look at me, and so much more. You are a lucky couple if you get to book Brian for your wedding!
Brian and his assistants were the most professional, timely, and incredible photographers I could have ever dreamed of! Throughout the day, I was barely even aware of their presence, and I never felt uncomfortable or on display, even while they captured precious moments. Brian and his team captured every moment of our wedding and reception perfectly, down to all the details that I did not have a chance to see in all the excitement. We have wonderful family photos, group shots, artistic and natural bride and groom shots and all the impromptu moments, many of which I did not recall until I saw the photos! He gave me the drive with all the photos within days of the wedding, and was great to work with before, during and after! I totally recommend him for anyone with a big event coming up!

Brian photographed our wedding on Captiva Island, FL and we gave him plenty of interesting lighting options to work with: beach, sunset, night time with backlit LED Xmas lights… the guy was like a kid in a candy store and it showed in the exceptional quality of his work. Great, artistic photography was THE thing my wife wanted for our wedding, and Brian did not disappoint. He gave us good suggestions on how to best capture our ceremony and functioned more as a part of our wedding party than some guy we hired to shoot some pictures. If you’re looking for standard portraits, there’s plenty of options. If you’re looking for art, hook yourself up with Brian Milo.

You did such an amazing job, Brian! The compliments we get are endless! I have people come up to me recognizing our photos to tell me what a gorgeous wedding we had. I don’t have words to thank you enough for capturing the happiness on our special day. We are forever grateful!
I being a photographer myself was extremely focused on finding the right photographer who would capture what I was after and had a style I liked and was in my price range. Once we looked at all of the photographers in the area we picked Brian. He and his assistant were AWESOME!! The photos turned out fantastic and he literally captured every minute of our day!!! Thank you so much Brian for everything!!!!!!
Words cannot express how much we love these pictures!! I cannot stop looking at them! I’m truly blown away by your talent. They turned out better than I could have ever imagined! I’m glad we booked you before you become big and famous for your amazing photography! 🙂 we also loved the hand written thank you card and the mini print out that happened to be of one of our favorite pictures. I cannot say enough about how impressed we are with your work from beginning to end. I am recommending you to everyone I know! 🙂 and it’s not just me, everyone who has viewed these pictures feel like they came right out of a bridal magazine!
Brian was AMAZING!!! His pictures are genius and his turn around time is phenomenal! He had the link in my emails the day we got back from the honeymoon. Talk about impressive. The pictures were so amazingly breath taking. I am not a model but in those wedding pictures I look and feel like one! He was so creative and I cannot pick a favorite out of the hundreds of pictures. He made my wedding unforgetable. I would definitely recommend him to all future brides!!!!
AMAZING!!! STOP NOW & SIGN THE CONTRACT!!! If you are lucky enough to hire Brian for your wedding you have just won the photography jackpot!!! I cannot say enough great things about Brian and ability to give you the best memories of your day. He worked so hard for us on our wedding day! Brian shot my wedding on June 23, 2012 and I am so impressed on how he captured the essence of our day and every emotion that went with it. I have so many amazing photos to choose from – yes that may be your only issue is that when you do get your photos back good luck choosing your favorites because they will ALL ROCK! The time frame that Brian turned around my photos was so quick and he asked if I wanted to do my own album or if he could have the first shot at it…once again Brian blew me away with how he put my album together. At the end of the day all you will have is your photos; it is the one area I urge you not to skimp on. I will treasure to my death the gift that Brian has given me by helping me preserve the memories of the best day of my husbands and my life! Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. I highly recommend Brian for your wedding or any other special event that you will want memories of. I will use Brain again for family photos or any other events. Brian THANK YOU so much for capturing the memoires of our wedding, the gift you have given to us is truly priceless!
