Chicago Event Photography_Chicago, West Loop 30th  Birthday Party Event Coverage_31.jpg


My photos help tell the story of your event by capturing genuine moments and most important details. Over the past several years of being in this line of work I’ve had the opportunity to shoot events of all shapes and sizes and am confident that I can deliver images that will wow and delight.



I want the pictures I take at events to have a special energy to them, a feeling that sets them apart from the typical event or conference photo you see online. I accomplish that by always following the fun at events. Anytime there’s a pocket of energy, even if it’s on the other side of the room, that’s where I go next. Almost every photo in my portfolio features people smiling and having a good time, and that’s not by accident. I got in to this kind of photography because I value being in positive environments with people that are in good moods, and that’s the attitude I will bring to your event.


My photography services are perfect for any event where people gather together to celebrate. To take part in something positive. To enjoy each other’s company. Joe U Photo provides event photography that’s perfect for birthday parties, marketing events, galas, holiday parties, festivals, performances, fundraisers, corporate events, non-profits, grand openings and any number of other special events in or around Chicago.

Joe was available on short notice and captured our day with high quality and enthusiasm.
We were so impressed with how he managed to get amazing shots despite the questionable lighting of a brewery!

Joe is a phenomenal person to work with...Even in a venue the size of a warehouse with non-stop entertainment and activations, he didn’t miss a beat.
