I really enjoyed my experience. My photographer, Andrea, was pleasant and professional. She made me feel comfortable and confident, even in the cold. She even gave pointers on how to pose, I thought I was a celebrity the entire shoot.

Amazing photos! We had a family shoot including a 2&3yr old Andrea made it so easy as we’re not the most relaxed in front of the camera but we all felt at ease and had a great time. She was great with the kids and had all the tricks to get the kids attention and smiling. The end result is lots of wonderful photos to remember our trip by. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Andrea!!

My fiancé and I had an amazing time and the photos came out so beautiful! It was our first time having professional pictures together and Andrea was very patient and kind. She knew what poses would look great in pictures, and all of the backgrounds were breathtaking!

We will have these pictures forever and they are the perfect souvenir for our vacation to Chicago. I highly recommend!

I took my 2 kids to Chicago for the weekend. I saw this as an option on TripAdvisor. I thought it was an interesting way to visit this area of the city and capture some amazing photos. By having this scheduled, I knew we would get to see this beautiful area from a local’s perspective AND all 3 of us would be in the non-selfie photos. Andrea Ruiz was our photographer. She reached out as soon as we booked and told me exactly where to meet her. On the morning of the shoot, she texted to give me an update on where to meet since the park hosted a festival. She took us to all sorts of places off the beaten path that were beautiful gardens, walkways and bridges. She carried our backpack so we could be hands-free. She was extremely easy to work with in this setting.
We took our pictures on Monday morning and by Monday evening, I had a link to all of the photos. I cannot recommend this enough! I wish my husband had been here because it’s a perfect way to get some great family photos with beautiful, iconic Chicago backdrops.

When my (now) husband and I got engaged, we knew we wanted to keep our wedding simple (as in, I wanted cake and everything else was negotiable). Neither of us are great at remembering to take photos, and we were just doing a City Hall ceremony, so we decided to line up a photographer as well for the traditional wedding shots. Andrea did not disappoint! She had plenty of ideas and even back-up plans, which was great since we had no clue what we wanted to do. She checked out sites, thought of timing and lighting considerations that NEVER would have crossed our minds, and gave us photos that blew our minds, as well as the minds of our family. And her rates were super reasonable. I can gladly recommend her without reservation!

Andrea took our photos during our session in Chicago, and I cannot day enough amazing things about her! She was kind, patient, and made us feel extremely comfortable! After we returned home, we were having trouble downloading the photos, and she walked us through it, and even sent several different files to make sure we got them all! Thank you Andrea for the amazing day, and memories you helped create for my mother and I!

Andrea has taken lifestyle photos for me as well as photos of my band (on a boat no less!) and both times she was incredibly easy to work with, very professional, and got fantastic shots. My band mates were floored by the shots she got on the boat! Andrea has an upbeat personality and is great at both giving suggestions and going with the flow. I would highly recommend her for your next photo shoot!

Andrea is exceptional! I recently asked her to take corporate headshots for my company, and they were outstanding. Then today, she photographed my family with the same skill and eye for the perfect shot, but in a totally different style than the headshots. She kept my kids engaged and entertained, she welcomed my 7-year-old’s suggestions, and she captured the best of us. None of that is an easy feat! Thank you so much!!

“Andrea was fantastic — I don’t particularly enjoy having my photo taken, but she made me and my friends feel super comfortable. We now have some lovely memories captured, and I also learned more about city, even though I’ve lived here for over 12 years! Andrea is a terrific tour guide.”

I was in Chicago for work and wanted to get photos to promote my business via social media, so I thought I’d give Shoot My Travel a try. I booked Andrea and she was so professional, friendly, and helpful from the very beginning. She was flexible to accommodate my schedule. She definitely knows the city and had a great plan for different locations. She knew exactly where I could change outfits and knew what colors to wear at the different locations. She made me comfortable and feel good and have fun (getting photos taken can be uncomfortable.) Most importantly the photos look great! And the turnaround was less than 24 hours. I totally recommend and will use Shoot My Travel again during my work travels. Thank you!!
