Pleased to Meeting You!

As a Chicago photographer, I see people working together to provide the best experiences their own businesses can offer. All the time. This good feeling image, taken during a meeting of the Northside Networking Group, is the type of image I always seek to bring back to those who hire me.

My business event photography loves seeing the good moments of interactions, networking, and outreach in our lively communities throughout the city.

My special skill is in capturing the brief, but beautiful moments of interactions, outreach, networking and personal celebrations with better than normal portraits with the leaders and participants of your distinctive event.

Inquire here, too if your firm or organization needs branding and portrait images for social media or professional needs.

Contact Dorothy Perry Portrait at 872 208 7659 to arrange meeting and social networking photographs that show your event in its best energy.

May I Capture This Dance?



The wedding season is upon us, and I am looking forward to new couples, new experiences,

and amazing moments you can ‘dance to’ again and again.

One Inspired Evening – One Moment in Time


I was pleased to be able to see a micro-view of the mission of the Inspiration Corporation in effect during their annual benefit, called One Inspired Evening. They are well known for their stellar work with local homeless populations, and their benefit art auction is the best local art social of the year! Enjoy the photos!

In Vino Veritas

I am sensitive to waves of energy and sunlight as a daylight photographer ~ and take additional pleasure in working for events that possess both! 

This Chicago WineFest was showcased at Cafe Brauer, which has a spectacular Frank Lloyd Wright design, skylight, and glass panels that let in beautiful, diffused light. 

Being given free reign to photograph what attracted me allowed me to ‘sync’ and flow with the energy of wine lovers, couples dancing, and vintage-enhanced cheer.

It resulted in images that had potential quality as artwork for my personal portfolio.  Let me tell you, I was as happy as those who had had a festival’s worth of wine!  

“Amazing having your energy onsite and shooting for us.”

“The photos are absolutely beautiful.”

“Overall great pictures.”

“I don’t know if I just have a few favorites, as I like them all.”

“They look fantastic!” 

“Best photos I’ve seen from the event.”

“You really did a great job highlighting our vendors and guests.”

“Thanks again for these great images.”

“This is awesome work!”

“We will definitely be sharing on our page!”

Thinking About Such Things


Weddings, receptions, cocktail parties, casino nights:

Chicagoans love their evenings out.

I remain observant and optimistic

that we will return to our natural, human needs

for fun, companionship, laughter,

and a zest for life that we have not lost yet.

Paraphrased from Philippians 4:8:

“…Whatever is true, whatever is noble,

whatever is right, whatever is pure,

whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable,

— if anything is excellent or praiseworthy —

think about such things.”


We have more power here than we believe.
