I firmly believe that weddings are about my couples, not me.

My couples are simply the best because they are laid-back couples who are looking to party and enjoy their wedding day with friends and family. They are willing to go off the path to get that great shot, and love cuddling for my camera. They also adore photos of candid, real moments (they crave photos of smiles and tears as much as me!). They’re usually big fans of printed photos, and especially love albums.

And because they are made of awesome, they also want a pretty wedding – usually loving old architecture, lace, and some gorgeous flowers or bling to highlight their reception space. But, most of all, they love each other wholly and completely, and might even tell me several times how their wedding day is the happiest day of their lives.

Chicago Engagement Photographer


I want engagement photos to show the excitement and love that couples have for each other – no serious faces or stiff bodies here. Engagement photos typically mark the very first step of the merging of two lives – and, like wedding and newborn photos, document a time that won’t come around again. When photographing sessions, I’m looking for smiles, laughs, and those quiet moments that show happiness in each other’s presence. Mix that with some great locations and beautiful light, and I am a happy photographer.

Engagement sessions are included with all of my wedding packages, but for an à la carte session, please contact me!


Weddings are just the beginning of a long life that is filled with big events. Perhaps I am biased, but I believe that all life changes deserve to be documented. If it makes you excited and a little bit nervous, that’s a sure sign that it’s a photo-worthy occasion!

Things like anniversaries, vow renewals, new houses, new puppies (and kittens, of course) are all events that I love to document. Email me for more info on these specialized sessions!
