I highly recommend Tori Soper for your next corporate event. She’s flexible, responsive and has an amazing eye. It can be difficult to bring the life of a conference out in photographs, but she managed to showcase both the energy and conversation in a beautiful way. Not to mention her editing turnaround time was lightening fast. They should get Tori a job running ORD — cause she sure knows how to run a smooth operation.

Tori Soper has been photographing our events for many years.  Her attention to details always ensures that we have the most dynamic photos for our events — even a room full of people staring at a speaker on stage! We work with Tori because we know we’ll not only receive great quality images as well as an innovative partner for our events.

Tori is amazing to work with – she is professional, fun and kind and takes the most beautiful photos. We asked for a couple of things and the photos widely surpassed our expectations. I would highly recommend Tori for events in the Chicago area and look forward to working with her again in the future!

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.

Tori is an incredibly talented Photographer with whom we’ve worked with on numerous occasions shooting portraits and events for our website and collateral. She captures every detail, consistently produces awesome photos, turns around our images incredibly quickly and maybe most importantly, she is always such a pleasure to work with!

I have worked with photographers for 16 Annual Conferences and none has provided better service, better pictures, or a better experience than Tori Soper. I have photographers with great energy and ones that deliver great pictures and ones that had excellent turnaround time, but never have I had the experience of all with one photographer. From start to finish Tori was a phenomenal asset to our conference and felt like an extension of our team. I highly recommend putting Tori Soper Photography at the top of your call list!
