Oh hey there! Welcome to

Katie DeVries Photography!

It's me!

Katie DeVries Photography Grayslake Illinois Photographer

Being from Wisconsin, I’m a natural lover of the outdoors. I hope to bring that beauty to each and every photo shoot however I’m a sucker for some cool lighting on indoor shoots. I moved to Chicago in 2014 and Grayslake, IL in 2020.


When I’m not photographing, I’m hanging with my best friend/husband and our fur-babies, planning out long road trips and going camping, listening to true crime podcasts or documentaries, and asking people about their best ghost story. (I will talk for hours about my fascination with the paranormal, so bring it on.) We are expecting our first in August 2021! I will be taking maternity leave August 1-November 1. If you are looking to have photos done between that time, I might make an exception depending on my health/recovery.


I want all of my clients to know that I am your photographer regardless of race, color, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, body type, physical or mental health status, citizenship status, etc. I want to tell each individual part of the human experience and that means celebrating EVERYONE'S beauty. Only love and kindness will be tolerated during our sessions and I commit to bringing it.

Can’t wait to meet you!

love from my clients

"We had Katie for our engagement session. We had so much fun! We had our own ideas for pictures that we found on Pinterest, Katie was very accommodating to try anything new. She also had her own ideas and we were able to capture so many great moments. Between the three of us we were able to do a lot of joking around to make the session fun."
