Esme Photography is a Chicago-based photography studio that focuses on photojournalistic, documentary-style wedding and event photography. The owner of Esme Photography, Esmeralda Kaiteris, is an innovative, modern photographer that pushes the field forward while respecting and preserving the unique beauty and authenticity of traditional forms and textures.
Distinguished by her unique, candid-shot approach and a storyteller’s eye for detail, Esmeralda is inspired by one simple truth: life’s great moments are defined not only by their subjects, but also by the effect they have on those who share them at that moment and after. This passion for the power of photography to capture the honest emotion of every client’s event is evident from your first meeting with Esmeralda through the final product.
Esmeralda’s willingness to travel for the perfect project, her keen eye for details and classic textures and her limitless patience as a mother of three active boys makes her the photographer of choice for weddings, birthday milestone events, private occasions and mitzvahs. Her open, friendly and passionate approach in telling great stories through the art of the image is apparent in every shot.
