There are a few folks here on the site that do wedding photography.

We just used Cornerstone and were very happy with them.

Hit up Lars, he got married recently and had some of the best wedding pictures I have ever seen. Get his photographer.

I wouldn't suggest using Jolie or other large studios simply because you are not picking a photographer, but rather a business. Some, most people are most likely really happy with their photographer from those places but because they simply contract out to multiple photographers there really is no security in who will be at your wedding. Most photog's working for those places use them as fill in work and most are very good but there is always the question.

Find an independent photog you like and trust and use them.

Actually you can request you'd you like to use from Jolie. I can get the name of the girl we requested/were recommended, she was very good.

This guy!

F'ing amazing. He was our photographer and since our wedding has done at least 3 of our friends wedding. One of my friends even flew him into Spain. He does amazing stuff and as you can see from his website he's more than just a wedding photographer which I think helps out his photos. Good luck!

Also, this guy was much cheaper (this might have changed in the last 2 years) than anyone else we looked at. We were quoted upwards of $3k - $5k (two people) and he was under $1500 for 2 people for the entire day. And again, his photos were out of this world.

This guy's out of Crystal Lake. We used him for ours. There's two separate guys (a DJ and photographer). If the photo doesn't work out, get him as a DJ. Trust me..my dance floor was PACKED for hours during the reception.
