PartySlate: How would you describe your style?
Jason Kaczorowski Photography: “I am a memory purveyor and an experience creator. I believe our memories are our most treasured possessions. My superpower is capturing the most powerful moments of life and transforming them into one-of-a-kind works of art. My art can transport you back in time to an experience to relive all of the emotions of your most incredible moments. My style is an artistic approach of modern photojournalism and timeless, artistic portraiture. I carve bold, dynamic lighting to shape striking, cinematic images that bleed emotion.”
PartySlate: What’s your favorite photo you captured in 2018?
Jason Kaczorowski Photography: “I pleaded with a couple for a few more seconds to capture one more photo in their church. I knew they were eager to jump on their party bus but I assured them if they gave me just one moment that I could capture a timeless portrait of them that would last forever. They fortunately trusted me and the image I captured ended up being their favorite photo from the entire day.“
PartySlate: What do you love about capturing special events?
Jason Kaczorowski Photography: “Gaining my client’s trust and hearing them say, “Wow! That’s amazing! How did you do that? We look incredible!” is an extraordinarily rewarding part of my job. Perhaps, though, my absolute favorite part of the day is when I am granted the opportunity to sneak away with the newlyweds after the ceremony to capture portraits alone of just the two of them. All that nervous tension is gone and there’s a permanent smile glued to their faces that doesn’t come from me asking them to pose. They’re beaming and when they see the portrait I captured of them it takes them right back to that feeling they had. It’s fireworks.“
Jason Kaczorowski Photography has been named the Best Wedding Photography of 2010 and 2012 by the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP), the Best Wedding Photographers in Chicago by CBS News, the Top 20 Wedding Photographers in Chicago by BrideBox, in addition to receiving the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award and The Knot Best of Weddings Award consistently year-after-year.
