About - Chicago Wedding Photographer | Photography by Christian Yah

About Me

Photography is more than my career. It’s about capturing emotions and immortalizing the moments you share with loved ones. It’s taking your vision and turning it into a work of art.

Thanks for stopping by. I’m Christian Yah, wedding photographer, husband, and father of two beautiful daughters. Based out of Park Ridge, Illinois, I also serve Chicago and the surrounding areas.

I have always been driven by the creative and studied illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago.

My interest in different mediums of expression evolved and I discovered photography. It's incredible to see how my journey in the arts intertwines with my work today.

Illustration laid the groundwork for composition, a sense of color and light, and observing the human form. From there I was lead to graphic design and now utilize those skills when displaying my art into the albums I present.

While photography started as a reference for my illustration, it has turned into the love I have for it today.

The challenge to produce art that's impactful drives me to learn more. "How can I take this image further?" This question always has me looking for a fresh angle or interesting perspective!

The connections I have with my clients move me to think on the spot and draw out more creativity. Not only am I telling your story, I am creating art you will cherish for a lifetime.

Each wedding is unique and I thrive off the differences. I want your day to go with the thought that, "not only am I bringing a professional who loves his work, I am bringing a friend to celebrate my day." There’s nothing I won’t do to get 'The Shot'… the one you’ll look back on for years to come and be instantly reminded of all the love that surrounded you that day.

I truly care about the images we create, but more importantly I care about you. During our time together, I will always want to make sure you're having a good time and the day is running smoothly.

Each couple has their own style, which is why the experience I provide is tailored to you. I'll draw from your personality to create something unique and bring life to your vision. It's an honor to be invited into such a special moment in your life. Let me take care of preserving these memories for a lifetime.
