Many thanks to my wildly talented friend Dr. Adams for putting up with my many costume changes during this shoot. Words cannot describe my gratitude for the space of exploration, empowerment, freedom, and fun that photographers like him create in their studio spaces.
Photoshoots can be wildly confidence-boosting experiences if you have the right person behind the lens and an attitude of gratitude on your heart. If you're in Chicago, I highly recommend hiring him.
Casey is so much fun to shoot with! My fiancé and I went for a night walk on the river front with him and he knew the perfect spots, lighting, and timing to get all the photos we wanted, but more importantly, the photos we didn't know we wanted! No awkward posing, he encouraged us to just be ourselves and our personalities really showed through when we got our pictures back (super quickly, I might add!!). We highly recommend Casey and Adams Design Studios, and know you'll have a great time when you book!!
Thank you so so much for being there for my special day. You captured great moments and I couldn't be happier. From what I can see from the sneak peak, You did a fantastic job. You kept me calm and kept me on track and I appreciate you. You made my vision come to life! Thank you thank you! ❤️
Is he a unicorn photographer? Affordable, excellent quality, responsive, professional... Adams Design Studios over delivered on my branding photo session. He was attentive to my vision and flexible to include all last minute changes. I am looking forward to booking our family session.
I appreciated numerous things about my first shoot with Adams design studios, particularly, his enthusiasm and patience.. which allowed my daughter and myself to get comfortable in front of the camera! And of course he's great at what he does! Five stars from start to finish. Highly recommend and can't wait to work with him again!
Casey is not only such a fun creator to work with, but the height of professionalism. I worked with him on a group shoot, and he made everyone feel comfortable and happy throughout. Not only that, he was able to very quickly turn around the photos for us, which is always a plus! I would gladly work with Adams Design on both modeling projects and personal events in the future.
Very professional with great photographer eye!! Casey was able to capture our vision from the photoshoot that my guy & I modeled in perfectly. The final photos were beyond amazing & he had them to us in less than 24hrs!! I’m definitely looking forward to working with him again in future shoots!!
Today me and my husband had a chance to be photographed by Adams design studio! We had a fun time taking the pictures. Everything was professional. We got our pictures back faster then I have ever gotten pictures back before. And I loved the outcome of all the pictures. I can’t wait for our next photo session!
Such a DOPE photographer!! He listens to and incorporates all of your ideas as well as gives great suggestions on what would look good for your shoot! Super friendly, great energy, and very good at what he does. This was one of the best photo shoots that I've had and I will definitely be booking him again in the future!
Had the honor to work with Adams Design Studios. I am a “newby” at being a model (for I am a HMUA).

Can’t wait to see if we work together again…..with an awesome concept
Bright lights, towering buildings, and the buzz of city life – that’s what we had in store for us throughout Hailey and Keith’s vibrant engagement session in October. We hit the bustling streets of Chicago and I am so excited that we were able to use the Chicago Skyline as our backdrop! These two were […]
There’s something about a classic, formal wedding inside of a church that gets me every time. It just feels so pure and cinematic. I love the pews, the pulpit, the architecture, and – if I’m lucky – a large pipe organ. Katy and John’s wedding took place at St. Norbert Catholic Church in Northbrook, which […]
