Wedding Guide

Welcome! I'm Candice Cusic, and I am so fortunate to have been a photographer my entire life.

Your wedding day will be documented by a trained photojournalist with over 20 years experience working for the top newspapers in the country. I have a degree in Photojournalism, and worked for the Chicago Tribune as a Photojournalist for 11 years, where we won the Pulitzer Prize. I have taught Photojournalism at Northwestern University for 14 years.


I also teach wedding photographers how to capture moments! I have spoken at professional seminars across America and Europe, and am the Founder of the Moment-Driven Workshop.


I offer clients a truly unique perspective of their wedding by telling their story with photographs. I blend in, capture moments of the people that matter the most, and have the education, training and experience to do this job that I love.

"I cannot boast enough about Candice! Candice not only gave us pictures, she told the story of our day with every single shot and captured the relationship my husband and I have perfectly- always laughing and just happy to spend our time with one another." -Cait

"Candice was our dream photographer. We got so many compliments on our engagement photos, and our wedding photos were such a gift not only to us but also to our family and friends. We could not stop raving about Candice, she was that one decision we made for the wedding that was well worth it. Thank you for all you have done for us Candice, your photos may be the most beautiful we've ever seen but it still won't top the kind of person that you are. Thank you thank you thank you for such a wonderful job." -Pauli
