You believe in your story. I surrender to it. Capture it. And hand it back to you in a way you can remember forever.

You're about to embark on the most wonderful of adventures. Because you're here that tells me you value epic, mind-blowing photography. Well done!

I'm fortunate, and sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how much I love what I do. I illustrate every story you trust me with.

Incredible photographs result from a trusted relationship between us. This comes from a friendship, and from time invested in getting to know you, and why you have chosen the different elements that will make up your wedding day. Think of me as a visual biographer of sorts, a narrator, telling your story through the images of your day.

I want you to be blown away by how beautiful you really are, by how beautiful I see you to be.

Lets get started!

+ you are beautiful
It is important that you click with us (pun fully intended) and vice versa, which is why I don’t take every wedding that comes my way. You deserve the best, and I want to make sure that I’m the right choice for you… the perfect fit.
I would absolutely LOVE to meet you and hear about your wedding. Fill out the form below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible!

  • Where do I begin? First, the photo doesn't do it justice but this was one helluva concert. We started off with a dose of black skies, hurricane-like winds, and eventual downpour. Seriously, the Miller Lite beer cart and cute little man working it almost got blown away if my friend's husband and son hadn't run over to help him. The rain coming down in #soldierfield looked like a snowstorm with the stadium lights shining through it. So grateful we had shelter to wait it out and thrilled the concert wasn't cancelled. The 
obscure clouds cleared for a great concert but near the end the skies opened up again and we got slammed by another round of nature's best. Chris Martin and the band sang on to their soaked fans and we walked home, in the rain, surrounded by other fans, drenched and dripping, singing #Coldplay songs in the tunnels under the streets. I'd do it again. #coldplayconcert #coldplaychicago #soggyfans
  • This has become quite an adventure to say the least. #coldplay #soldierstadium #ilooklikeawetrat #thunderstorm #coldplayconcert
