Our Story

JD Maloney Photography has been in the business of wedding and portrait photography for the past 5 years. Our opportunities have taken us from St. Louis to Chicago and many places in between. Through the eyes of a husband & wife duo, we enjoy seeing other couples tie the knot, high school seniors preparing to take the next step in their life, or families coming together to make memories they'll remember forever.

What We Do

Weddings & Engagements

Your special day is special to us too! Every second we strive to capture the candid and unique moments that make your wedding day unique. Also, we do our best to conform to your exact wedding schedule. No boiler-plate time tables and order of events. Fitting our creativity to your schdule allows us to achieve the best art, interweaving itself with the day’s activities.

Senior Portraits

Our goal is to take portraits that capture your personality. Getting to know our clients is extremely importatnt to us. Picking locations based on your interests and memories allows us to create a true image of you at this landmark point in your life. We travel to both rural and urban areas across central Illinois to give you a unique portrait experience.

Family Portraits

Every family has a story, a story that deserves to be recorded and shared. We work with you to tell that story through photographs, capturing the moment and reproducing it on paper to be remembered for generations to come. Sessions can be held both inside or out. Whether it’s in a family member’s home or outside a park or special place, we will be sure your family’s story is told.
