I believe that life is about having fun.
I found my appreciation for photography during a trip to Europe in college. Just before departing for the South of France, I decided to buy my first DSLR camera so that I could document my European travel. I fell in love with photography while traveling throughout Europe, capturing architecture, landscapes, churches, rivers and street photography. I knew immediately that photography is a road I want to travel down. What better place to find your passion than on an adventurous trip in unfamiliar territory.
After graduating college, I soon gravitated towards wedding photography. There's something about documenting a wedding day, getting to know my couples, building relationships and delivering an album, prints and images that they can cherish forever.
Get to know your photographer.
When I'm not out taking photos, I enjoy running (I ran the Chicago Marathon in 2017 and the Berlin Marathon in 2018), reading (I like everything from fiction to self help, business, health, wealth and psychology), and a lover of music and film. What I think separates me from the rest of the crowd is my ability to be social, connect with my clients and their family & friends on a personal level, and my deep passion to document and tell your story. If you hire me, you can expect to hang out with me prior to your wedding day - whether that be bowling, going for a run, getting coffee together or grabbing a beer at your favorite brewery, I love to build relationships with my couples and connect with them on a deeper level than just photographing their wedding day.
Why hire me?
Your images from your wedding day should be genuine to you. That’s why I photograph your wedding day as it naturally unfolds, with an unobtrusive approach. My style is photojournalistic, time-less and imaginative. My goal with every wedding is to not only be there to capture you, your family and friends, but to also document your special day from a unique perspective that’s all about YOU. You deserve a memorable experience from your wedding photographer, and that’s what I’m here to do.
As a Chicago-based wedding photographer, an invitation to document your wedding day means more than just a contract, because you’re more than just a client. I like to develop a relationship with my couples, sometimes turning into long-lasting friendships. Every bride and groom has a beautiful story, and if I'm a part of yours, it would be an honor and a privilege. I look forward to hearing all about your wedding day!
