About

You are the beauties with the larger than life lives. I am the interpreter of all your fleeting moments- the raw, and the weird, and the pretty ones. Because love is a slow descent into the deep places, my clients continue to inspire me with their momentous and even normal days. 

If you are looking for a not-so-traditional photographer, and if you like really good photos, we will probably be a stellar fit. I love weddings because on this extra special day, you will see a blend of your all time favorite people you've met thus far in life. I want to capture your weird uncle meeting your best friend from high school and your dad dancing with the flower girl, and the mothers crying in a really big, awkward hug. I want to capture your sister handing you a tissue as you look on at the group of people who have come together to celebrate you and your love. I want to capture the feast. And the dancing.

I love my job because of YOU guys first and foremost. I also love that I get to travel all over the country and sometimes world —  I live in Illinois and have a love/hate relationship with the Midwest, with love always winning out. 

I want to know you and know about your life and the day you are planning, so please say hello!
