10,000 Words Photography

We all know the saying "A picture is worth 1,000 words." But why can't they be worth even more? 10,000 Words Photography strives to bring you photos that are worth 10,000 words, or even better, simply leave you speechless. 10,000 Words Photography is located in central Illinois and is available for photographing offbeat, nerdy, and quirky weddings throughout the country.

Your wedding is one of the most important events of your life, and the memories made will span you and your spouse's entire life. It is the accumulation of many moments of love with your significant other and, for offbeat couples, a chance to celebrate your love with friends and family through personal flair. Whether it be incorporating a lightsaber fight into your first dance, using Princess Bride references in your wedding hashtag, or quoting Game of Thrones in your vows, we want to capture those special moments of your day that show who you truly are as a couple and individuals.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

10,000 Words Photography loves offbeat couples because we’re offbeat ourselves. We are nerds through and through and love capturing offbeat weddings because the couples who throw them are “our people.” From traditional ceremonies to handfastings and everything in between, we’re an equality-minded photographer who will capture your big day so you remember every single moment of it. After all, a picture can be worth much more than 1,000 words!

"10,000 Words went above and beyond our expectations! Engagement photos, wedding photos, innovative shots, etc. Plus a second photographer on our wedding day and an album. We highly recommend 10,000 Words Photography!"
– Julie Pruitt, Bride
