We document real moments as they unfold, moments you remember and love: a dad playing with his kids, a newly married couple’s first kiss, a baby’s first cry. These are stories you will tell future generations – the photos we create will add dimension to the past, present, and future. We show your love as it really is.

We’re Laura and Tim Meador, the husband-wife team of Art Photographic. We believe in real, honest, authentic life. We specialize in documentary style wedding and family photography in Bloomington, IL. We’re artsy (Laura), kinda funny (Tim), pretty nerdy (both of us) and we’re completely in love with each other, our son Owen, and our church community. After eleven years of marriage, we bring that sense of joy and commitment to every photograph we take.

We wholeheartedly believe that your love is beautiful and you deserve photographs that capture your love for years to come. If you like our style, fill out the contact form and let’s get together.

We love our clients and aim to take great care of them. In their own words:

Jackie & Kurt:

Laura and Tim are amazing! They are absolute professionals, extremely thoughtful, and were so amazing to work with. They were very interested in us as a couple and our story and worked hard to capture the type of photos and details that we wanted. We LOVE our pictures and get many, many compliments on them.

We loved their warm and personal approach and loved working with them from beginning to end. They go the extra mile to get the perfect shot, their photos are truly works of art, and we recommend Art Photographic to everyone!

Christy & Andrew:

Tim and Laura were absolutely incredible. We had family and friends coming up to us all night, impressed by how fun, kind, and professional they were. The pictures simply speak for themselves. We couldn’t have asked for a better pair to capture our wedding day.

Sean & Lauren:

From beginning to end, Laura and Tim exceeded our expectations. They have a personal approach that can be seen in their ability to capture the details that are most important to you. Our first meeting in their home felt more like a conversation among friends than a business venture. The care they took for our wedding made a big impression with our family and friends as well. The weeks leading up to the wedding, Laura visited several locations and dreamed up the shots she wanted so our day would be captured efficiently and smoothly, yet not rushed.

The day of our wedding, Laura and Tim blended in when necessary yet were able to give direction to keep order. This balance of attention to detail, professionalism, and a passion for a great shot comes through in all the final photos we received. Everyone looks so relaxed and comfortable, allowing their personality to shine through!

We would (and have!) recommended Art Photographic to anyone in need of a photographer. Thank you!

Emily & Daniel:

I highly recommend Art Photographic! Laura and Tim were great to work with. They were extremely professional, organized, and had great ideas for the photography at our wedding. They were great at staying out of the way, but never missed a moment. They are very personable and make everyone feel comfortable during shots. Art Photographic does an excellent job at capturing everything you want to remember on your wedding day! Big thank you to Laura and Tim!

Angie & Jason:

Thank you so much for taking the most amazing photographs of our wedding! We are so happy with them and are spreading the word about how great you are!
