Marker Photo Productions is a Sister Company comprised of the joint talents of Sisters, Mary Carol Fitzgerald of Mary Carol Fitzgerald Photography and Keri Fitzgerald-Johnson of Keri Johnson Photography ~ Specializing in Professional Events, Charity Fundraisers & Lifestyle Portraits ~ Live. Love. Conquer.

Traveling from one coast to the other and beyond, Mary Carol and Keri are based out of Chicago, Illinois & Naples, Florida. They can work with you individually or together depending the level of desired service. The capacity of their photography service for their clients is limitless. 

Their uniqueness set them apart ~ Whether shooting on the sidelines at a sports game or attending a black tie event, the Fitzgerald Sisters blend in to the scene with their enthusiasm and stylized attire. 

As highly creative individuals, their skill sets compliment each other in front of and behind the scenes. They deliver quality work along with offering a high level of professionalism. When two very different sisters, Keri and Mary Carol Fitzgerald, a decade apart in years, first picked up their cameras at different stages in their lives, with varied intentions and opposite interests, little did they know that as they grew older, not only would they start to look more alike, grow closer to each other in style, friendship and nature, that they would be combining their talents, joining forces and building life-altering dreams together. 

For years, synchronicity had been emerging into their lives from various angles and perspectives personally and professionally—while Keri’s career was taking on a new form in Southwest Florida, Mary Carol’s was emerging into a being of it’s own in the great city of Chicago. Although it didn’t take long, without initially realizing it, they were setting the foundation of being able to work with each other to combine their efforts for a more explosive business. And thus, MarKer Photo Productions was born. 

Full of life and love, this modern-day iconic team {of could be twins} will leave you in a state of awe-inspiring excitement from the ‘awe’some energy they bring to each event or session they photograph separately or together. You will be wowed from the moment they arrive in your presence to the presentation and outcome of their final production!

With a passion for fulfilling life’s greatest dreams this dynamic duo is unstoppable. MC & Keri take event and portrait photography to the next level!

Perfect summer weather set the scene for this special day. We began photographing Shannon & Nick at Aqua Blue Hotel in downtown Chicago where the bride and groom were getting ready. The beautiful Shannon surprised Nick in the gardens below with a first look. From there we went on to a couple iconic locations for group and formal photos and headed over to the Honey Comb at Lincoln Park Zoo & Cafe Brauer where the ceremony and reception were held. It was truly a beautiful event throughout the day and evening. Special thanks to my team ~ photographer, Andrew Cavanaugh and awesome assistant, Kelsie Knaus, for all their help and talented work.
