Thanks for popping in! I am a photographer born and raised in a small town north of Chicago. I love my dogs, my morning coffee (if I haven’t had it don’t talk to me) and traveling, brownie points if I get to travel and work lol.
My goal is to make sure you and your boo are stress-free from the start of the booking process til after the wedding day is over! Because when it comes down to one of the biggest days of your life that you’ll remember forever, you want to make sure you are taken care of and can enjoy the ride to the rest of your life with your soulmate.
A little bit deeper into my life on why I do what I do… REALLY…
My father died right before I turned 16. It was to this day the hardest time in my life. Nothing compares to the loss of someone so close to you. It was unexpected, right after the holidays, and really hard to wrap my head around. I have a few things that I hold oh so near to my heart, and that ladies and gentlemen, is photos. My dad was such a photo phenetic it was insane, but I love him so much for it. He captured so many moments of my life, growing up, day to day life on the old Sony camcorder, and all those disposable camera prints from your local drugstore. I used to hate it, rarely a week would go by where I didn’t see him with camera of some sort, but now? God, I thank him every day for that gift of memories he left me with. All the smiles, the laughs, the cries, the home videos on Christmas, birthdays, and holiday gatherings.
Those days I hated being photographed because I didn’t it, I cherish for the rest of my life. That is why I value photography SO much. It is dream to capture every single detail of your special day from start to finish, to make sure it is preserved for years to come, just as it was in those moments. As they say, a picture tells a thousand words, so let’s write the best novel money could never buy. I work to capture who you are, around so many people that love you, and hope to bring happy tears to your eyes twenty years from now.
I don’t make many promises, but I can promise that together we can make something real and unique like you’ve never seen before. Because you aren’t basic, you aren’t just like everyone else, you are unique in your own way and I do everything in my power to capture you exactly the way you are. And that it’s my mission to make sure you’re 100% satisfied with the outcome.
