Welcome to Studio 388 -
a natural light photography studio in Kankakee owned by Kyle & Kara Evans!

If you know us, then you know we're dreamers... Throughout twelve wedding seasons and photographing over 200 weddings, we've been dreaming. We've dreamed of a dedicated natural light studio space to share with our clients and wedding family along with the local creative community... Studio 388 is all of that and more! We're so glad you're here to explore the studio.

So, what's the scoop?!

Our studio is located in the heart of downtown Kankakee at 388 East Court Street. The studio is available by appointment only. We currently offer hourly rentals and full day rentals to photographers, videographers, creatives, and small business owners. The 500 sq. ft. studio is welcoming and inviting with neutral colors, textures, and furniture to create a minimalist look and a blank slate. The options are endless! 

Studio 388 features...


Tons of natural light – our space even has a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows!


Multiple backdrops & photo backgrounds – the space features clean white walls, a shiplap wall, and a backdrop system with 3 seamless backdrops to choose from!


Furniture options to fit many styles! From the couch and bed to additional furniture pieces like chairs and a bench in the prop closet... There's variety to work with, and we love that!


A dressing room to give your clients privacy in the space as well as curtains hanging at the windows for added privacy. 


Private door code access for our hourly studio renters.


Accessibility for everyone! The studio is street level with wheelchair access & street parking. There's a bathroom just a quick walk down the hall from the studio, too!
