I’m based in Chicago, but I’ll go wherever your heart takes you!
My job is to capture your big day, but my passion is to tell your story; I live for the moments that can’t be put into words, but to me it’s so much more than taking photos.
These days, anyone can take good pictures, but I want to be more than the girl with the camera. I love connecting with my clients on a deeper level, hanging out with you and dreaming with you about your big day! I want to make sure you look back at your photos and feel every emotion you felt when we were taking them.
Wedding days are what I live for.
When the flowers are plenty, love is everywhere all the time, and I'm wiping away tears as my couples make the sweetest vows to each other. Not to mention me sobbing like a baby during father and daughter dances. I have shot countless weddings, but moments like these never get old.
My photography style can be described as warm, candid and natural.
I want to capture every belly laugh, crinkled nose, stray tear and booty grab that goes into this chapter of your life. I know you see the word “authentic” everywhere you turn now-a-day, but I can promise you our experience together will be real and, more importantly, it will be fun, and your pictures will show it!
You know me with a camera in my hand and a smile on my face, but here are eight other things that make me me:
I married my high school sweetheart, Andy, in September 2018. We’ve been together for almost 10 years and I think he can finally tolerate getting his picture taken. (Sometimes.)
I’m a Type 2 on the Enneagram, so I’m happiest when helping others and bringing them joy. Basically, I’m a people pleaser.
One of my favorite quotes is, “You cannot make everyone happy; you are not an avocado.” For the reason why I love this quote, see #2.
Less is not more when it comes to sugar in my coffee!
Give me a dress with pockets and I’ll be the happiest girl in the world.
If I could be reincarnated, I’d come back as a sheep that lives in Iceland. All they do is eat grass all day in the most beautiful place on Earth! I realized this as my husband and I road tripped around Iceland during our honeymoon.
I’m a the biggest dog lover around, and I encourage all my clients to bring their dogs to shoots. (Seriously, please bring your dog!)
My heart is happiest when I’m with my loved ones traveling somewhere we’ve never been before.
