Christian Yah

Illinois-based wedding photographer

Being creative has been my background for as long as I can remember. My passion has evolved through different mediums of art, from design, illustration, and now photography. The biggest reward not only has been what I can make out of my work, but the people I am happy to get to know.

Christian is amazing! My wife and I discovered his work on instagram when we were looking to get our wedding photos reshot because the photographer that originally shot our wedding was extremely disappointing. My wife reached out to Christian and he set up a phone call with us to get an idea of what we wanted. He was extremely professional because he not only made sure to understand what we wanted, but he wanted to make sure we felt comfortable with everything that the photoshoot would entail such as the location, weather, bystanders and poses. Once the day of the photoshoot arrived and it started, I could instantly tell that he was a pro. He gave us both so much direction and took a lot of different elements into consideration like the natural sunlight. He also gave us some fun things to do to which made us laugh and enjoy the photoshoot even more. He made everything so easy and fun for us. We really wish we chose him to do our wedding, so if you’re reading this, go reach out to Christian right now!

Christian made our day so special and enjoyable! He first arrived to my husband’s place to take pictures of him and my husband said he made him feel like superman with all the hype and positivity he was giving him! We had a big traditional Mexican wedding with 16 bridesmaids and 16 groomsmen and he did an amazing job including everyone while still providing quality work. Christian is passionate about what he does and his personality allowed us to get the best pictures. The end product was amazing. We love our pictures and we would definitely book him again. 10/10 recommend!

Christian is an absolute joy to work with. He showed true enthusiasm for my vision of a non-traditional wedding and his passion for his work showed every step of the way. Christian’s demeanor immediately put me at ease and gave me, a person who isn’t fond of being photographed, a remarkable amount of confidence. My wedding photos arrived quickly and are exactly what I imagined them to be. I could not be happier.

Christian absolutely saved our day! We were shocked to find out 6 weeks before our wedding that our previously booked photographer had gone out of business due to covid hardships. We were scrambling, and a bit freaked, until we found Christian. He immediately put us at ease, asked us questions about ourselves and our vision for the day, and went above and beyond planning out the day so that we were sure everything would be captured. On the day of the wedding Christian was early and ready for everything. I am an artist, so our wedding had tons of creative DIY details and Christian captured them all beautifully. My favorite thing about the set of photos we received is the overwhelming joy radiating from every photo. if I’m ever having a rough day all I have to do is flip through our album and be transported back to that wonderful day surrounded by our friends and family celebrating our love.

Christian was recommended to us by our friend and his wife who had him as their wedding photographer. Im so glad we had Christian to take photos for us on our big day. Our photos are absolutely amazing. Before the wedding Christian spent a lot of time communicating with me about plans, venues, etc. He respects my opinions and ideas but also provides candid and super helpful suggestions. His professional attitude towards client and work also impresses me. Due to weather issue I suggested changing our original plan a few days before the wedding and Christian was able to quickly provide me a different set of plan and suggested he could help in case of applying for media permit etc. We just received our photos and we couldnt be happier!!
