We don’t take experience lightly here at LakeShore Photography and Video. It’s taken us two decades to get where we are today, and we understand that success takes time to create. Owner Jimmy Fishbein has personally created and trained his team to make sure your wedding gets the personal touch and detail that it deserves.
Professionalism to us means to keep in mind every little detail that helps create a successful wedding day. From blending in quietly and respectfully, to communicating efficiently with our personal headsets, to not missing a moment, our professionalism will become immediately apparent from your first contact with us right up until you receive your final images and video.
Jimmy left the University of Cincinnati for Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. During his tenure at Brooks, he learned the true fundamentals, made lifelong friends, and gained the experience and knowledge to take him to his next journey in the photography field. Upon graduating from Brooks, Jimmy moved to New York City to take his photography to the next level. It was here that his learning curve expanded greatly which enabled him to work with some of the best and most well-known photographers and their clients in New York.
Today, Jimmy is currently living in the West Loop of Chicago and married to his beautiful wife, Christine, where they enjoy taking their puppy to the dog park and spending their summers in upper Michigan. Jimmy started LakeShore Photography and Video based on wanting to provide people with photography that captures the essence and all of the details of their special day. Jimmy wants to provide the same high level of service in creating professional photography for every wedding he captures as if it were his own.
After moving to Chicago several years ago, Michael began working at LakeShore Photography and Video and his extensive photography and video experience was immediately apparent. Michael leads production on many of our largest shoots, and is also in charge of managing all of our post production endeavors.

When it comes to wedding photography and video, each wedding is different in its unique style and requires years of dedication and experience to properly capture the important moments of the day. Our professional photographers and videographers spend a significant amount of time before the big day learning everything about your important wedding or family event. We want to make sure we get to know your preferences, likes and dislikes, special requests, and help add value by working with you to ensure we capture all the details large and small that you want to capture, in the way you want it captured.
From surprise engagements and wedding announcements, to rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies, and receptions—we capture the details, smiles, tears, and toasts that make every wedding so unique and personal. They say that wedding days go by “so fast,” and we are keenly aware that professional photography and video allow you to cherish and remember these special moments for a lifetime. We specialize in elegant, contemporary, photojournalism, and classic professional photography and video, and have served the Greater Chicago Area since 1997.
