Hello! Firstly, thank you for taking the time to look through my images. I hope they tug at your heartstrings and made you feel something. Images are about connections, because to make them requires an awareness and empathy of what makes us human. It requires both the photographer and subject to create a captivating image that makes you feel like you can relive your day over and over. A timeless photograph that has a life of it’s own.
I've been photographing people for over a decade now and I wouldn't feel like myself if I didn't have a camera in my hand. I'm not big into trends or lots of posing, rather opting for a documentarian approach, an honest, intimate and timeless perspective of your day. I want you to be able to look back on your wedding photos someday and see timeless, raw emotion. Your wedding day isn’t just about the love you both share together, it’s also about the people you chose to celebrate it with. My goal is to capture the essence of this. My photos have been described as cinematic, timeless, photojournalistic, humorous, romantic, and elegant with a touch of satirical look.
What I won't do:
- Prioritize posed portraits over celebrating with friends and family - the images themselves aren't just what's important, it's the memories attached to those images as well.
- Awkward poses/setups
- Recreating moments (the original moments were just fine :) )
I book only 12 weddings each year so that I can provide you with the best possible photographic experience. I keep my pricing super simple to make things easier on everyone! All weddings are $3000 and include full day coverage of up to 10 hours, 500-800 high-resolution images, USB drive and a private online gallery. Elopements start at $1200. Fine art albums and a second photographer add-ons are also available. Getting married outside of Chicago or having a more intimate wedding/need less hours? Please don't hesitate to reach out as I can be flexible and try to meet your needs! :)
If it sounds like we may be a good fit, send me an email at [email protected] I'd love to hear from you!
