What Clients are Saying. 

Kimberly Nagy

I highly recommend Composed & Exposed Photography! Becka worked closely with us from the very beginning, scheduling meetings with us online and via phone since we were planning our wedding from out of state. She went out of her way a couple of days before the wedding to come to the venue and look around in preparation for our wedding day photos. Even though our day was cold and wet, our photos don’t show any of that! They are absolutely beautiful, and we couldn’t be more pleased. She is also very professional; during the ceremony and reception, I didn’t even notice she was there. Becka is very reasonable for a Chicagoland photographer and is exceptionally talented. We would definitely recommend her!

Becka is absolutely amazing. She is very friendly, extremely dedicated and very good in her job. She will have the ground work ready with a series of detailed questionnaire. Even before she starts the shoot she knows exactly what you are looking for. Her candid shots are the best. She understands the fine details and the pulse of her subject and also the extended crowd. She is very professional and delivers on time (even before). We loved her work and her !

Lindsy Green

Just received our wedding photos and couldn't be happier. Becka was professional, patient and friendly. Prior to the shoot I was able to detail the style of photos I hoped to capture and Becka's work reflected the casual, candid style I desired. We recommend her services and will use them again in the future.

Matthew Strait

From day one, Becka was amazing! My now husband, Eric, and I chose Becka because of the style she had in all of her photos which definitely made its way into our engagement and wedding photos. Becka was always responsive and very helpful throughout the process. We loved spending our time with her the day of our engagement shoot and she couldn't have made planning the wedding day photos any easier. The wedding day was amazing with Becka being "hidden" when she needed to be, but available for any pictures we wanted. Thank you, Becka!!!

Amy Marie

I received my wedding pictures back earlier this week and could not be more pleased! Everything about Becka was wonderful! She has a great eye, she took what little guidance I gave her and turned it into a collection of remarkable memories! Photographers are everywhere, good ones are fewer, and ones that pair talent with her personal touch are true gems! 🌻

Liz Egler

Becka did our family pictures at Peck Farm. They turned out absolutely beautiful! She found so many amazing spots to use and we got a great variety of shots. Becka is so nice and laid back. She was very sweet and patient with our 3 and 6 year old! We were extremely impressed and would highly recommend her.

Sam Siano

Becka did our first family photo shoot which was also my son's 6 month photos. He was teething and tired. Given his grumpiness I was concerned and hoped ever for just 3 good photos. We were thrilled with the results. She captured so many good moments despite his fussiness. You would never have known he was having a rough day. We got plenty of gorgeous solo shots of him, some adorable family shots, and even a few couple shots with just the hubby and I. We're beyond satisfied. 

Lizzie Winowiecki

Becka was fabulous! These were our first family photos with the WHOLE family. (Dog included) She was very patient with the dog and our 10 month year old son. She got so many great moments with the whole family and just our son and dog. She had great ideas of places to shoot. The The photos and the scenery could not have been better. I will be using her again and would strongly recommend her. Thank you from a very satisfied family! 

Courtney Hohl

What a great experience!! Our session was super easy and relaxed! Couldn't of gone better and the photos are priceless! 

Christine Lucchesi Christerson

Thank you Becka for doing such a fantastic job with our pictures! My husband requested last minute pictures and you were so accommodating. I can't believe you got such great pictures of all three of my teenagers! I couldn't of asked anything more. Thank you!

I truly can not say enough about how amazing these photos are. You left (us) speechless with how many great candid shots you got!! The only problem is I don't know which one I love the most! :) Cannot wait for our next session together!

We have had multiple sessions with Becka and I can't say enough good things! She is so great with the kids and the pictures have consistently turned out amazing. I would highly recommend her!

I recently did a shoot with my 2.5 year old. Becka was amazing with my not always so cooperative daughter. She was able to capture our relationship on print amazingly. Will definitely be using her in the future! I will forever cherish these photos!

We had a family photo shoot with Becka and the pictures are wonderful! She took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for. She was also great with our kids and they had so much fun with her! 

Lisa Moreno

Becka is very patient with little ones. As a "modern" family we felt very comfortable working with her. She has talent and vision, which is great when taking family pictures. We look forward to working with her again. 

Alexia Montavon

Becka was so flexible and amazing! Everyone felt so at ease with her. Her pictures were great and we were so happy with the results. She took family pictures and senior pictures. She even had the patience to work with our dog who we included for these pictures. I would recommend her to anyone! She is also very friendly and patient! 

Bernadette Sweeney

Becka was beyond wonderful! We have 6 children, which equates to a lot of blinking eyes, turned heads and an occasional cry or whine. Yet every picture tuned out phenomenal! Very talented and had no qualms working off my vision for our family pictures! 

Faby Ortega

Becka did an amazing job. I'm really happy with the results! Thank you so much for your patience. My son was a little grumpy at the end and you managed to get some of the best shots of him! 

Tricia Lindsay

Becka just did my daughters senior pictures and they turned out great! She was very easy to work. My daughter had a great time doing the shoot and was thrilled with the pictures! Would definitely recommend her and use her again!
