I met Jasmine and Tyler at the iconic Naperville Riverwalk on an unseasonably warm day in March. From the setting and the weather to this adorably in-love couple, this session was an absolute treat. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this September! Happy engagement, you two lovebirds! I’ll see you at the altar.

This wedding was a loooong time coming. And when it did, boy was it sweet. I met Melanie and Mike for their engagement session back in January 2019. They originally planned for a 2020 wedding, but after several setbacks (like a worldwide pandemic), they were finally able to say “I do” in October 2021 at […]

Gwen and Garrett came down from lovely Michigan for a classic Chicago wedding. The day began at the Waldorf-Astoria and from there briefly moved to the Art Institute of Chicago until we were rained out. Then we pivoted and headed to Merchandise Mart, where we hung out until the ceremony began at River Park at […]

Eiftu and Alexi got married at Wandering Tree Estate in a celebration that incorporated their Mexican and Ethiopian cultures. From the Ethiopian singers during the ceremony, the mariachi band, a surprise serenade, and the INCREDIBLE food, it was a beautiful tribute to love, family, and heritage. Just look at the incredible photos below!

What can I say…this wedding was out of this world! From all of the fun details to the one-of-a-kind venue, not to mention all the emotion, Madisen and Kyle’s wedding at Warehouse:109 was absolutely breathtaking. Check out the images below!

I’ve known Tricia for forever, since we were in middle school orchestra together. So I was thrilled when she first contacted me to photograph her and her husband, Brian. Since then, I’ve gotten to see her through her pregnancy, the birth of their daughter, and the little moments in between. I truly feel as if […]

When I first met Bridget, she desperately wanted to document her family’s apple picking tradition and invest in some showstopping artwork for her home. She’d been saving up for it for a while and was finally ready to splurge as a birthday and Christmas gift to herself, but she was nervous about the cost, as […]

So, you want to get some family portraits taken, but you’re hesitant to move forward. I get it. It’s a lot of work and a big expense, and experience tells you it will probably be painful. But it doesn’t have to be! I’m here to tell you that having your portraits taken can be fun […]

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything for this space, and a lot has changed. My kids are older and sassier, my pets are more numerous, I have more gray hairs and a few extra pounds (thanks a lot, 2020), and, most importantly, I now sell things. Real, tangible, beautiful things that will hang […]

I haven’t shared anything in a really long time, and that’s because I’ve been super busy shooting some amazing families! And also because I would rather do just about anything than sit down and blog. So you know what I’m about to share is going to be GOOD if I’m actually putting on my writing […]
