Allow me to introduce myself!


     My name is Amber Gercken and I am the artist, creative entrepreneur, and one-woman-show behind Endlessly Photography.

      I'm a natural light Lifestyle Portrait & Wedding Photographer based in South Suburban Chicago, Illinois, and I specialize in a mix of classic and documentary-style portraiture, destination weddings, elopements, and intimate weddings. Endlessly Photography has been open for business since January 1st, 2012.

      Family is EVERYTHING to me. They are the core, the foundation, my inspiration, the driving force behind my desire to succeed, and the daily reminder to always stay humble. I am the proud full time mom of two wonderful kids. My children have shown me that every moment from the mundane to the extraordinary is special & important - which is why I'm so passionate about the work that I do.
 

the endlessly experience


      When you are in front of my lens, you can always expect to feel relaxed and completely at ease. I will guide you through variety of traditional and natural poses - but when we're together, having so much fun, surrounded by the beauty of nature or the comfort of home... that's when the magic happens. My approach is simple, minimalist, organic; my focus is on YOU and your honest, genuine interactions. 

      After your session or event, each individual image is carefully hand edited and delivered via online gallery in both color and black & white. Every photo is unique, colorful, bold, and invokes emotion. My artistic style is inspired by modern digital editing & techniques as well as vintage film, so the result is both trendy and timeless.

      The ultimate goal as your photographer is to also be your personal storyteller; to capture real, authentic reactions & expressions. If you are waiting for the "perfect time" to hire a photographer, that time is now. Every day is a beautiful day to celebrate & preserve this chapter of your life.

LET ME TELL YOUR STORY


      For over half a decade, I have been extremely lucky to be able to follow my dreams while also supporting my family. Photography may be my full-time career, but it will never be "just a job" to me. I am forever grateful for the connections & relationships that I have forged, to have the opportunity to watch relationships and families bloom & grow, to be a small part of these once-in-a-lifetime moments, and for all of the the incredible stories & adventures that are still to come. I truly hope that one of those stories is yours.

love + light, amber gercken
