TORI SOPER

Owner & Lead Photographer

Each shoot brings with it a different challenge so along with the help of my team, I make it my goal to strategically collaborate with each client, genuinely connect with my subjects, spot opportunities quickly, meet the tightest of deadlines and make even the most camera-shy feel like rock stars. Consistently focusing on the details while appreciating the bigger picture allows me to produce compelling imagery while providing exceptional service, on time and always within budget. Of course it helps that I always play nice and make a stellar cup of coffee.

When I’m not behind the camera, a few other life essentials that make my life go round include my family who are nothing but joy, laughing a lot, attempting to make tofu taste like something other than tofu and road trips in pursuit of the best views the country has to offer.

I’d love to hear from you so when it’s time to start planning the next photography project, please get in touch!

My team and I develop image libraries for clients including lifestyle, behind the scenes photos and corporate headshots for websites, annual reports and social media campaigns.  We also work with magazine editors to produce location and environmental portraits for their feature stories.  We photograph events  across the Chicagoland area as well as traveling nationally for our clients.  We also offer high-volume, headshot photo booths for trade shows, conferences, conventions and meetings.

Our clients span across nearly every industry including manufacturing, retail, food services, telecommunications, education, real estate, hospitality, technical services, health care, finance and insurance, just to name a few.

In the beginning stages of planning your photography project but you’re not quite sure to start?   Looking to have a mobile portrait studio set-up at your trade show booth? Think you might need more than one photographer to cover your conference? Deciding between business headshots or environmental portraits?  We’re here to help!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Toris’ skill with the camera is unquestionable. Perfect poses, lighting and the just the right amount of editing. Add to that her ability to take an individual unaccustomed to being in front of the camera and putting them at their ease and you have the perfect recipe for a successful photo shoot resulting in beautiful images.

Angela McDonagh
Fidelity National Title

We are a consulting company, so our product is our people. We had Tori attend our annual team meeting and it was fun to participate! Now, we have real images of our actual team that we can use for so many things. I was told by so many colleagues how impressed they were with Tori and we are so happy with the results

Jamie Morris
Praxis Life Sciences

We had worked with another photography company in the past and were unsatisfied with their work after multiple sessions. We hired Tori and when she she came in and the experience was night and day! She put us at ease right away and took time to explain to us what she could and could not do. She brought her assistant and a MUA for us and honestly I don’t think you could find a better team. They were time efficient, more than competent, reasonably priced and just had a great energy. I will absolutely use Tori Soper Photography in the future.

S. Scales
Billerudkorsnas, U.S.A.

It was an intense and fun 4 days…and extremely successful!  So appreciated your flexibility and good humor as we worked our way through all of the photos we needed.  You were terrific with the models and that made the images so realistic. I look forward to seeing our end product in my book…I know it will make it a stand-out and we all hope a smashing success.

Sue Roe
The Roe Group

Tori took head shots of my company’s executive team and I highly recommend her for any corporate photography needs. She was easy to work with, exceeded expectations and went above and beyond to make sure everyone was pleased with the way their head shots turned out. Everyone on our team had a great experience and I look forward to having the opportunity to work with Tori again!

Nicole Dana
Centro

Tori is a class act with a great eye and superb leadership and rapport on-site. She’s agile, committed, creative, effective and efficient. She strikes a great mood among executives during corporate headshots and really brought the spirit out of our professionals on a recent “candid” shoot in our offices. I would hire her again and again – for projects in Chicago and beyond. So pleased to have made a contact with an artist and partner like Tori who I can leverage across a variety of business needs.

Carrie Grapenthin
Lincoln International

We had a fantastic experience with Tori. The photos are beautifully lit and perfect for using in our collateral. Very knowledgeable about her craft and helpful with suggestions to help the outcome of our shots.

Brittany Hince
Fooda

Tori is an excellent photographer, and very versatile at handling a variety of subject matter from portraiture to events. She always brings a positive energy to her assignments. With portraiture in particular, she has a great skill for what may be the most important aspect of all…making the subject feel comfortable on camera.

Mark Brady
College of DuPage

You were such a pleasure to work with and I hope we have more opportunities to collaborate again on other projects. I can tell you that everyone from G-W really enjoyed working with you and had great things to say about the experience.  You all are pros, and our textbooks will be awesome as a result of your talent and great images!

D. Nowaczyk
Goodheart-Wilcox Publishing

Tori made our employees feel so confident in front of the camera. With her easy-to-follow directions, personable and warm disposition, everyone felt relaxed. The staff had so many great things to say about working with Tori!  She produced flawless and wonderful portraits for our teams at each of our branches and we will definitely be bringing in Tori again as we add to our team.

Briana Scalzo
Advanced Resources

Tori stepped right in – with her trained assistant, lights, camera and expert eye. She took the time to tour our offices to choose workable settings, was fastidious with the lighting and shooting angles, and even swiped a few shiny brows with her makeup brush! Tori and her team were on time, well-prepared, worked well with all levels of our executive team, and delivered terrific results from the first session.

Lisa Alexander
Inventrust Properties

We’ve worked with Tori for a long, long time…over ten years now. We use her for studio work and regularly recommend her to our clients who need headshots, image libraries and event coverage. We’re always very happy with the quality of her work, fast turnaround time, ability to stay within the budget and her fun approach.
