Born in Tennessee, Elizabeth Nord at the age of 27 is considered one of the top 22 best wedding photographers in Chicago where she can be found. Elizabeth met her husband when she was 16 and got married at the age of 20 (read her love story here). She told me that her biggest obsessions are sour candy, puppies & making people smile.

VC: Do you do workshops?
EN: Yeah actually I started doing workshops this year, so my first one was in february and I am looking forward to do another during fall. The workshop focuses a lot on the business side of photography, which a lot of workshops often neglect. I also incorporate a wedding styled shoot into the workshop as well so the attendees can gain a more hands on learning experience and so they can build their portfolios.


WHAT IS THE LOVE IN THE CITY WORKSHOP? Whether you’re a beginner photographer or someone that has been in the business for several years, this workshop will help you take your business and photography skills to the next level. While attending, you will gain a deep understanding of how I use my branding market, and networking to create a high end photography business. You will also get to see firsthand how I photograph clients during their engagement session as well as on the wedding day in a natural and authentic way through a engagement and styled wedding shoot.
