Chicago Lifestyle Wedding and Portrait Photography
Hello! We are Matt and Stevi. We are the husband and wife photography team that is responsible for anything and everything AveryHouse. We are based out of Chicago, IL but travel around the world for weddings and other photographic projects. We describe our photographic style as creative, elegant and modern-vintage. We met each other ten years ago over coffee in a little town called Amarillo, TX. Since then, we have walked together through life, learning and growing as individuals and together as visual artists.
People often ask where "AveryHouse" came from. One of our favorite painters from the mid 1900's is Milton Avery. He was a modernist painter while still retaining some realism. We are drawn to his work by his use of color blocks, shapes and how he reflects life in his paintings. We also do more than just photography and have the hope of someday growing our business to being more than just the two of us and having a collaborative group of artists. So "AveryHouse" was born.
