let's get to know each other

Hi! My name is Maurice Strickland

The founder and principal photographer behind Light + Chapel: Wedding Storytellers.

I was born, raised, and currently reside in Chicago, IL. I developed my love for photography through traveling the world & inspiration from my amazing wife of 11 years, Elizabeth. My favorite place in the world is Paris!

I have shot over 200+ weddings so I am an expert when it comes to all things wedding and ready to help! I am so glad you are here and I hope to answer all your questions.

As an editorial wedding photographer, I bring a unique blend of artistic vision and journalistic style to your celebration. With a background in storytelling and a keen sense of composition, I strive to create images that not only reflect the emotions of the day but also stand as works of art in their own right. I work discreetly, yet diligently, to encapsulate the emotions, details, and atmosphere of your wedding day, allowing you to relive the magic each time you flip through your album.

"We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us."

Love Notes From My Clients

Deltrick & Dyan

From the moment my wife told me she was considering Light + Chapel, and showed me some of their work, I knew instantly they were the one for us! Then we contacted them and just off the good vibes, and the genuineness of the conversation about the vision we wanted for our wedding, we knew we had to work with them! So glad we did... very professional, creative, flexible, just all around someone who truly has a passion for what they do!

Your wedding is all about you, your family and dear friends. Be your true self. Show your fun, quirky personality. Do the things that make you happy. Laugh loudly. Kiss slowly. Hug tightly.

I'll be there to capture it all and help you save these beautiful memories for a lifetime.
