Wasabi Photography is the documentary wedding photography boutique of Chicago photojournalist Travis Haughton.

I spent the first five years of my career as a newspaper photojournalist, so I’m well-versed in anticipating and capturing events as they unfold. My goal is to tell the story of your day, from the morning preparations through the dance party. As a documentary photographer, my passion is for moments. I love capturing all the emotions of a wedding day — the joy, the laughter and even the tears. And I can’t wait to tell your wedding story!

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Chicago has some beautiful churches and gorgeous hotel ballrooms, but I know they’re not for everyone. So if you’re throwing a party at your favorite restaurant or getting married in a public plaza, that’s awesome!

Regardless of what kind of celebration you’re planning, I love working with couples who make their wedding day as unique as they are. Seriously, why have a wedding cake if you like brownies and ice cream better?

The most successful weddings I’ve photographed are memorable, not because of the venue or the details, but because I connected with my clients, and they trusted my vision.

And if you’re planning a small wedding or elopement, I’ve got special rates just for you!

All Offbeat couples receive a $200 print credit!
