About us

Tori Soper

Owner & Lead Photographer

Each project brings a different challenge. With the help of my team, I make it my goal to collaborate with each client strategically, genuinely connect with each subject, spot opportunities quickly, meet the tightest of deadlines, and make even the most camera-shy feel like rock stars. Consistently focusing on the details while appreciating the bigger picture allows me to produce compelling imagery while providing exceptional service on time and always within budget. Of course, it helps that I always play nice and make a stellar cup of coffee.

When I’m not behind the camera, a few life essentials that make my life go round include my family, who is nothing but joy. I’m also a fan of laughing a lot, attempting to make tofu taste like something other than tofu, and road trips in pursuit of the best views the country has to offer.

We’d love to hear from you so when it’s time to start planning the next photography project, please get in touch!

My team and I develop image libraries for clients, including corporate lifestyle, behind-the-scenes photos, and corporate headshots for websites, annual reports, and social media campaigns. We also work with magazine editors to produce on-location and environmental portraits for their feature stories. We photograph special events across the Chicagoland area and travel nationally for our clients. We also offer high-volume headshot photo booths for trade shows, conferences, conventions, and meetings.

Our clients span nearly every industry, including manufacturing, retail, food services, telecommunications, education, real estate, hospitality, technical services, health care, finance, and insurance, to name a few.

In the beginning stages of planning your photography project, you’re not quite sure how to start? Are you looking to have a mobile portrait studio set up at your trade show booth?

Tori and her team were absolutely outstanding. We booked a full-day photoshoot with two different locations, and we could tell we were in good hands from the moment Tori started the day. She did a fantastic job making our staff and clients feel comfortable in front of the camera. She captured exactly what we were looking for in the photos she took, and the entire day went so smoothly from start to finish. The entire Beyond Properties staff thanks you for your hard work!

Tori and her employees were AMAZING! We hired them for a corporate event and they did a wonderful job! They were on time, they stuck to our very tight time schedule to ensure everyone was able to get their photo taken, they brought in lint rollers for our clothes and oil blotters for our faces, they told us where to turn or move our faces to make sure they got the best shot of us. The photos they provided us were absolutely beautiful and they touched them up as well. Everytime someone walked out after getting their photo done they said “I felt like a star” or “OMG they made me look so good”. Tori and her team are wonderful and you should book them. They are great and you will be very happy with your photos.

Tori and team (Jen on make up and styling and Rudy on editing and direction) were the upmost professional photographers as well as fun. I found myself trying to invent a reason to hire them for a personal event yet-to-be-scheduled. Why? Because after the corporate head shot session that Tori and team managed for my office, I am sure that a non-corporate session with these fun people would be absolute riotous fun. Each of colleagues seemed to say the same: fun, professional, made me feel like a super model, quick, non-pushy (no one was wearing red lipstick that did not already put on red lipstick herself / no one was asked to strike an awkward pose or smile in an unnatural way). On top of that, the schedule ran on time, the team was respectful of our office space and left no evidence of their presence. The final product was also delivered in a very timely fashion, the digital proofs look unreal and the viewing platform is well organized. An overall winning experience with a fantastic team.

I’ve worked with Tori – of Tori Soper Photography – for a number of years in my positions of creative oversight for two of the largest industry Tradeshows and she has always far exceeded my expectations. She is always ready for whatever I throw at her – and she is beyond professional and reliable. She can take a seemingly static product in a traditional exhibition environment and light it to feel like it’s a glamorous studio shot. And then turn around and capture the human element with equal dedication. Tori’s a gem personally and professionally! In addition, Tori is an amazing professional headshot photographer. Her and her team will make even the most camera shy person feel comfortable and the end results speak for themselves. And anyone considering getting professional headshots – Tori’s stylist she brings along creates an effortless polished look to round out the whole experience.

This was Tori and her amazing team’s second time out to our company, and she kills it every time. Her keen eye and dedication to collaboration makes for a perfect photoshoot no matter the event! This was my first time getting a professional headshot, and she was very accommodating and quick to make me feel comfortable throughout the process. She also did a great job capturing some sweet moments during our anniversary party in a more casual setting – a true dynamic talent! We love Tori and can’t wait to see her again!

Tori is truly a pleasure to work with. Her and her team make people feel comfortable in front of the camera, keeps the conversation flowing between participants to bring life to the candid photos she captures, and is nothing but kind, knowledgeable and professional. Her thoughtful approach is highly appreciated, and she was a great partner in a large corporate photography and headshot program. We are always thrilled with the outcome. Thank you to Tori and the team!

Tori and her crew are the best – we have had the pleasure of working with them 6+ times and have been ecstatic with the outcome each time. Tori’s team is always on time, happy, and ready to get to work. We have utilized their ability to set up a pop-up studio in our company’s office to shoot employee headshots; not only logistically are we always impressed, but time and time again folks who sign up for photos pass along the best feedback: thanking Tori for how fun it was and how relaxed Tori is able to make the atmosphere. The results are always wonderful employee photos (received with very a quick turnaround) that truly everyone is pleased with. Thanks Tori and team!!
