WE BRING YOUR INNER SUPERMODEL
WHY I DO WHAT I DO
Around here, we don’t just see you the way you are - we see you the way you were meant to be seen. Those values accompany us on every engagement or wedding we are privileged to document - and it’s why we cherish our clients and their weddings. Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you deserve photography that reflects the importance of the day.
Photography is not just a job to me, it's my passion! I come from a family that loves and cherishes values, and I bring that same joyfulness and values into all my work and client interactions and their families. Being around that kind of love and commitment inspires my work, and it's the reason I love weddings so much. I bring this same passion to your big day as I document your wedding!
WHAT TO EXPECT. WHAT TO BRING. GETTING EXCITED!
I have been an Illinois Wedding Photographer for 10 years and I come to realize that engagement sessions are the perfect way to capture your love in a fun yet intimate way - and they make for great practice sessions before your wedding day! Each wedding package I offer includes an engagement session for this very reason. Engagement sessions are fun, laid-back, and allow us to get to know each other before your big day!

CAN THIS ILLINOIS WEDDING PHOTOGRAHER TELL YOU A SECRET?
I love weddings, and I'll probably cry at yours.
I do. They never get old. The excitement, the giddy expectation, the dress, the color, the confetti. I love every little bit of them and it’s fascinating to see the quirky little personal spins that each couple put on the tradition. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone goes ahead and wows you all over again.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHEN DO WE DO OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
I encourage you to do your engagement session as soon as possible. The latest I suggest is at least 10-12 weeks prior to the wedding date due to the time necessary to post produce each image and complete your product order(s).
HOW DO YOUR DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I am an Illinois Wedding Photographer who has developed a unique style of wedding photography that is deeply rooted in photojournalism. I am also influenced by fin-art and high end fashion photography. I love using creative lightning with unique perspective.
