About Us

We’re Jay and Larissa, Chicago wedding photographers, parents, foodies, and adventurers.

We both grew up in Florida and first met in 9th grade Spanish class. While Jay was instantly smitten, it took Larissa 14 years to come around—then she fell head over heals. We were married in May of 2013 and that same year started Henington Photography and had a honeymoon baby. The following year we moved to Connecticut where Jay attended grad school at Yale. Today we are living our dream in Chicago and absolutely love being photographers, parents, and urban explorers.

Style & Approach

We want to break the status quo of what you’re used to with wedding photography. We consider ourselves creative and photojournalistic, but we really want to surprise you, amaze you, and excite you with your wedding photos! We want to capture every single moment of your day—the details, the emotions, and every moment in-between—so that you can re-live it all over again each time you look at your photos. We approach each wedding as something new to be discovered, and try to capture it’s distinctiveness in a beautiful, interesting, and artistic way that portrays who you uniquely are as a couple. For us, each wedding is an adventure and we can’t wait to explore with you!
