“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”

Hello! I’m Lenel Denham Jr., a lifestyle portrait photographer from Chicago currently residing in the Northern IL area. I enjoy life with every stride and love bringing that into each and every one of my sessions. Since I was a child, I have always had passion for photography and believe in putting moments into images that last a lifetime. Getting to know people, capturing their love and life stories all in a still moment of time is Priceless. I strive to organically capture your bliss and delight in whatever moment you are wanting to record; whether that be engagement or wedding day photos or maybe its the newest addition to the family or a senior session. I thrive on Quality… So I take pride in knowing I captured a moment they can take and treasure for years to come.

My Session will be unique. I encourage you to incorporate a special theme or idea to express the real you, or the relationship between you. I can find appropriate locations as well as studio options to best portray the image you desire. It could be at your house or backyard, park, lakefront, etc. Even in your best photo shoot clothes or best makeup, above all, I want more than anything to capture you. My relaxed style of shooting makes clients feel comfortable and gives them confidence in front of the camera. Let me make this a special event to help you remember. If you have any more questions about me or my photography please feel free to contact me! I am looking forward to meeting you and hearing your story 🙂

“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”

Hi! I’m Endo Montano. In every lens there is a man behind the camera, the magic of video is that you need a creative person to visualize the world. In every eye there needs to be a lens to provide you with the vision. Without a man there is no magic and without the camera there is no spark. It takes a team to produce the final cut. Endo Montano is a unique and creative videographer with very unique skills. From shooting videos to being behind a program editing Endo has the passion to put magic memories together. Put a camera in endo hands and you now have a dangerous man. The first time I remember grabbing a camera was 20 years ago. The power and the vision allow me to transform from recoding in film to going digital. As the video industry change Endo was always in the front with innovating idea. There was a time where we recorded in Vhs and editing was almost impossible, now with the digital world at our hands nothing is impossible. My belief is that everybody deserves their 15 minutes of fame.
