We are photographers, designers, and bookbinders

working together to celebrate your story.

Founded and guided by award-winning photographic artist, Amanda Sudimack, the studio has evolved over the past 15 years. Creating beautiful, timeless art has always been our focus — art informs everything we do. 

We are inspired to create natural, artful images for our clients designed in handcrafted books & albums you can't find anywhere else.  We create and produce our own proprietary lines of albums because every detail counts. The scope of our bookbinding and design services has expanded in recent years to include Family Archive and design projects for prominent families, organizations, and past wedding clients all over the country. 

We believe in many things–our clients, great composition, art, rapport,  journalism, the moment, our reputation, and your experience.  We believe in great design, in-sourcing, collaboration, and fine materials. We covet handmade papers and bookbinding. Whatever capacity you choose to work with us, we deliver work we're proud to create. 

Our team is honored to capture your moment and help you tell your story–with honesty, respect, and exceptional professionalism. We love what we do.

Amanda Sudimack

Amanda, named one of the top 20 photographers in the U.S., has been working with brides & book-lovers for more than fifteen years. 

Her work has lined the pages of leading wedding publications including Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Town & Country, Real Simple Weddings, Martha Stewart Weddings, Inside Weddings, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Modern Bride, and more. She's been featured in industry publications including Photo District News (PDN), Rangefinder, and Professional Photographer. Amanda was twice awarded the coveted Photo District News (PDN) Top Knots Awards and her body of work is profiled in three books including Wedding Photography Unveiled by Jacqueline Tobin / PDN, Ultimate Wedding Look Book by The Knot and Photographer's Guide to Wedding Album Design and Sales by Bob Coates.

Amanda shoots up to 15 weddings a year worldwide, designs and produces 100s of books for her devoted clients each year, makes art, and shares her photography & bookmaking knowledge through workshops and professional consulting. She holds a BFA in photography and art history from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Amanda calls Oak Park home where she lives with her husband, their two adorable kids, and a crazy Border Terrier, Sadie, who jumps really high.

It’s a warm and fuzzy feeling after editing 16+ years of work knowing I still love work I made from 1998 as much as 2014. My goal has always been to make timeless art that resonates with me, my clients, and their family over time as much as it does the day it’s made. I feel very satisfied and so happy all these amazing clients and friends in my life actually let me do this for a living. I archive life, create art, and make books for awesome clients—what could be better?
