  • Salvage One Wedding :: Lei & Chris

  • As a wedding photographer, when you have a Salvage One wedding on the calendar, you get really excited about photographing at the venue. It's such a great space - it has several levels full of vintage furniture, a gorgeous outdoor space, and a beautiful bridal area - it's just one of those rare spo [...]
  • Ravenswood Event Center Wedding :: Elise & Nathan

  • The day of Elise & Nathan's wedding, I posted a photo to Instagram stating that taking wedding photos that day was pretty amazing. At the time, I was just ecstatic about the sunshine and warmth, since it was one of the first days that it was possible to comfortably walk around without a coat. But, [...]
  • Monte Bello Estate Wedding :: Brittany & Joe

  • I'm a biased photographer in thinking that all my weddings are beautiful in their own perfect way. Sometimes a gorgeous venue or styling does the trick. Sometimes the beauty is when a bride and groom forego what's traditional and expected and make the day a perfect reflection of their relationship [...]
  • Arrowhead Golf Club Wedding :: Jaclyn & Brett

  • I can't believe it's been over a year since Jaclyn and Brett's wedding! Where has this summer gone?! Anyway, this was one for the record books. It was a perfect, sunny day, with plenty of time for photos at stunning Cantigny Park, and I had the sweetest bride and groom in Jaclyn and Brett. Even [...]
  • River Roast Wedding :: Amy & David

  • I love that no two couples have the same likes, memories, and inside jokes, and it makes my photographer heart happy when they bring those experiences into their wedding day. A little story from this day: Amy and David used to live right by River Roast, and would often watch people taking weddin [...]
  • Woman's Club of Evanston Wedding :: Gerrie & Mike

  • With the ceremony in Alice Millar Chapel at Northwestern University, and the reception at the historic Woman's Club of Evanston, gorgeousness obviously abounded at Gerrie and Mike's wedding. But, more than the locales, the traditions were my favorite part. Just a few that come to mind: I loved ho [...]
  • Armour House Wedding :: Stephanie & Christopher

  • It's so hard to put into words the feeling of a wedding. It's a 15-hour day that is full of a ton of people, countless emotions, and a convergence of different histories. If I were to try to explain Stephanie and Christopher's wedding, I'm sure my words would not be the same as guests, or family me [...]
  • Cantigny Wedding :: Sarah & Matt

  • With one of the most emotional and thoughtful gift exchanges I've ever witnessed, it was obvious how much Sarah and Matt understand each other. With their incredibly joyous first look, it was obvious that they love each to the moon and back. With their tearful and eloquent vows, it was obvious that [...]
  • Chicago Cultural Center Wedding :: Liz & Russ

  • Sometimes, as a wedding photographer, you get lucky enough to be invited into a family. You are asked to shoot the weddings of several siblings, or reoccurring family portraits, and you are able to see the progression of what it means to be a family. It's a remarkable thing; I love my extended fami [...]
  • Acquaviva Winery Wedding :: Gwen & Mike

  • Sometimes I'm just amazed at how great it is to be a wedding photographer in Chicago. I spend every weekend in absolutely stunning locations, whether they are grand city hotels, vintage estates, or, in this case, an amazingly gorgeous vineyard. Yes, a vineyard, just an hour or so outside of the cit [...]
  • Wedding :: Brooke & Dave

  • I have a special spot in my heart for high school sweethearts like Brooke and Dave; there is nothing like the understanding, comfort, and history that comes from knowing each other during the tumultuous teenage years. That history is always a wonderful thing to photograph because it comes through in [...]
