Spring 2019

We were so honored to be invited to Chicago’s Waldorf Astoria for our spring training this year. We also welcome with our photo crew 4 of the area’s top Instagram influencers including @Clarkandstone , @hertastylife, @mushroomstew and @minalkmehta to be our incredible subjects rocking @sylmarkt wears and had their already beautiful hair and make up styled perfectly by the amazing team at The Face Pro. We took this opportunity to shake up our team training, get out outside of our portrait comfort zone and take fashion portraits to the next level. We love to photograph moments as genuinely and authentic as our subjects so this was a wonderful exercise for our entire team!

winter 2018 

Winter was a very busy season for our team as we traveled to 3 time zones, saw a little sister and her boo off to wedded bliss and found that partridge in a pair tree ! It was a wonderful time of the year to see so much love abound and share all the Rose Photo love. We look forward to a new year in 2019 to meet new friends and tell more love stories. Drop us a love note and say hello!

Summer 2018 

We were so excited to be invited to Chicago's pop up, Instagramable, hot summer spot,  Happy Place! We host a team training for our growing group of awesome photographers once a quarter and it was so fun to mix up our locations at this really unique and totally photo worthy spot.

spring 2018

With the RP team dedicated to chasing great light and an even better story, we found our self at a great hub of both amazing photo ops AND boss babes at Chicago's EvolveHer- an awesome co-working space dedicated to female entrepreneurs and women of the now! Our quarterly team meet ups for photo workshop and team camaraderie always yield really great photographs! We hope you like them, too :) 

SPRING 2016

Our first full female team of super talented, very extraordinary and well published photographers remains the foundation of our photo collective group ethos of leveling up and leading with confidence. We are so very proud that many of these founding RP babes have moved on to start their own studios, some remain with us and work the freelance hustle and we all keep growing, one positive foot in front of the other.

Winter 2014

After studying under Chicago greats of wedding and portrait photography, Carasco Photo + Steven Gross, Rose Kaz choose to step out on her own to found Rose Photo so she could fully participate in telling love stories with her camera. Her attention to the minutia and penance for getting to the heart of every plot line, Rose creates truly cinematic photographs.
