About Us

I believe that marriages are forever, that memories are more important than likes, and the most important part of every wedding day is the partnership it launches. Heirloom photographs are among the few things that remain with you after your celebration; together, we will create elegant and authentic images that will serve as anchors and reminders of the timeless commitment you make to each other.

My work is elegant, authentic, and timeless, and I built my business out of a love for storytelling. I am passionate about serving my clients and providing them with personalized services that truthfully tell their story through one of the most joy-filled and exciting phases in their lives.

Your love is beautiful, and your wedding photographs should be, too. I'll partner with you to select the best outfits for your engagement session. I bring a bespoke styling kit matched to your wedding colors to photograph your little details when you're getting ready on the big day. Throughout the process, you can count on me to help you choose the best locations to make beautiful photographs, and when we turn the house lights down for the reception, I'll be there with a full professional lighting kit so your images are bright and clean all the way until the send-off.

I believe in documenting my couple's love as it really is. No fake or forced poses here. Every portrait session begins with simple, easy to follow prompts to help you and your partner feel comfortable in front of the camera. Together, we will create genuine moments and memories as we tell your love story through photographs.

Marriage is a lifelong commitment, and after vows and rings, there's no better reminder of the promise you've made to each other than a set of heirloom photographs you can treasure for years to come. Every image I deliver is carefully edited using a digital darkroom process to match the timeless aesthetics of real film. I'll partner with you to create an heirloom album that is handcrafted with archival quality materials so you can display and enjoy your wedding images for years to come.

I feel incredibly privileged to be welcomed into my clients’ lives to share, document, and celebrate some of their most special memories. I have been photographing weddings since 2015; to date, I have been honored to help tell the love stories of over 40 couples.

I married my best friend, Jasmine, in June 2018. We live in Round Lake Beach, IL with our Maine Coon cat, Sasha. We welcomed our first baby into the world in October 2019.
