There aren’t enough words to explain how much we loved Tim and Bethany!!! We had them do our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner and wedding – all of the photos were absolutely stunning. They managed to capture every moment perfectly and their photos embodied all of the emotions at each event. They got shots I hadn’t even known I had wanted/needed that completely blew me away when we saw the final portfolio. They brought back memories I didn’t even know I had, made everyone look beyond gorgeous and brought to life the most heart-warming and funniest parts of the evening.  Photos aside, they made all three events so much fun while they were shooting – my husband and I instantly felt comfortable with both of them and were sure of ourselves/natural when photos were taken because of their expert guidance. Their professionalism and communication went above and beyond what we could have asked for. They listened to what mattered to us in the photos and executed accordingly, providing excellent recommendations for locations/poses along the way. I truly don’t think you can find a better photographer – I have and will continue to recommend them to everyone!!!

Tim and Bethany are a dream come true and truly some of the best people we have ever worked with.  Starting with our engagement photos, Tim worked with us to find the perfect locations and made sure we were completely comfortable for the first session.  We didn’t know what to expect going in, but it was such a fun day and the pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous!  He seriously thinks of everything and takes some of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen.  He captured our happiness and excitement perfectly at the time of our engagement.
Organizing and planning for the wedding day with Tim was also extremely easy, he is super responsive and easy to work with!  Also, aside from amazing photos, early in our planning process he gave us some vendor recommendations – many of which we ended up also working with who were equally as amazing.

For the main event, our wedding, Tim and Bethany truly went above and beyond.  We were working with a tight timeline which included a first look with the groom, my dad, and my bridesmaids as well as two different getting ready locations, and a large wedding party.  None of this phased them at all – our timeline was managed perfectly while still getting all the photos we wanted.  They also helped us pick the perfect locations for our photos – the Ambassador balcony for our first look and a park for additional pictures that allowed us to be by the lake/city, and still close enough to the ceremony location.  Tim and Bethany were also snapping pictures when we didn’t even know it!  We have so many special photos of memories we didn’t even expect, like crossing the street to the church with my sister holding my dress and my sister helping my mom with her dress.  They worked flawlessly throughout the event, and I hardly even knew they were there! Tim also made sure I got all the different friend shots I wanted and worked with my sister to round everyone up!

I look at our wedding portfolio at least  twice a day and I will never get over how perfect the photos are.  Thank you again Bethany and Tim for capturing our perfect day and us so magically!  We will cherish these memories forever.

Tim and his wife are outstanding! They were the photographers for my son’s wedding last weekend and they were awesome. Not only, so professional but so friendly and personable! Can’t wait to see all of their beautiful photos of a beautiful weekend! Thank you!

I find picking the perfect vendor is about quality, style, value (meaning the product matches expectation based on price, not cheap), and compatibility. TimTab exceeded all of my hopes across these attributes. TimTab is a married couple (cute, right?) that makes your feel comfortable from the start. I would say what drew me personally to them was their balance of modern, but timeless style. What I left with was amazing photos (even 48 hours after the wedding!) that will leave me smiling forever! It actually rained on our day, and they were prepared with Plan B! They made the day so carefree, it was easy to feel natural and like ourselves in pictures. I cannot say enough how lovely they are to work with. LOOK NO FURTHER!!!

Tim is so personable and worked a long day and produced incredible shots of my son’s wedding! What a nice guy!

Tim and Bethany captured the day beautifully and made my husband and I feel at ease during the entire process. We love our photos and will treasure them always. Thank you for making the process seamless from beginning to end!

It was such a pleasure to have Tim and Bethany as our photographers for our engagement shoot and wedding day. Not only did the pictures turn out perfect, but they also ensured our wedding day was stress-free. When our transportation was significantly late, they rolled with the punches and managed to still get every photo we wanted in each location while maintaining a sense of calm and confidence that helped us not worry. They delivered a set of preview photos within a few days of the wedding which was so exciting to see and share with our guests long before we thought we’d be able to. Overall, I would recommend Tim & Bethany to anyone knowing they are so talented, kind, and fun to work with! Thank you for making our wedding day even more perfect.

Photographer Tim Tab Studios About me

I was raised in southern France and came to Chicago for college in 2004. My friends couldn’t pronounce my last name (Tab-a-you), so they nicknamed me Tim Tab.    I founded Tim Tab Studios in my dorm room in 2007 after being asked to shoot a friend’s wedding and have since loved every day getting to do this job. In 2011, my wife Bethany joined me full-time as my administrative queen. The experience of working together has been completely wonderful for us. We form a well-balanced team with me as the lead shooter and Bethany as my second photographer at many of my weddings.     The seasonal aspect of the wedding industry offers us the opportunity to travel back to France regularly to keep us connected to my roots, and teach our three daughters to love France. We can’t imagine having a career more suited to our lives.     It’s been over 400 weddings now, and I still enter each wedding day with a deep gratitude and empathy for the emotion and magnitude of our clients’ wedding days.
