Kristen & Jason's Engagement | Chicago Wedding Photographer

I've been relishing the beautiful weather we've had in Chicago over the last 2 weeks and have continued to take advantage of it with a few more engagement sessions before wedding season gets into full swing. This last session was particularly special because I got to photograph a close friend of mine. Kristen's been a good friend ever since high school, and in [...]

Kelly & Bill's Engagement | North Avenue Beach & Belmont Harbor | Chicago, IL

The natural lull in the wedding season that the Midwest winter's provide always allows some much appreciated time to get recharged creatively. Coming off the cusp of that, I can honestly say that I'm entering this wedding season the most inspired that I ever had. For that I am grateful. Before wedding season gets full swing, I've had the opportunity to shoot th[...]

Bethany & John's Engagement | Fulton Market | Chicago Wedding Photographer

These two. What an incredible time we had capturing their engagement around the Fulton Market District of Chicago last week. The shoot came just a day after they got engaged and the freshness of their excitement is so tangible in all of their images. The torrential downpour of rain could have deterred the shoot, but instead it added to the fun and character of the[...]

Tracy & Mark's Wedding | Gallery 1028 | Chicago Wedding Loft

As I've planned on posting some of last year's weddings, I've been so excited to share Tracy and Mark's Chicago wedding at Gallery 1028 from last summer. As I've prepped this post I've been reminded of just how incredible of a day it was. All of the character and life that embodied Tracy and Mark's wedding, made it so much fun to capture. Tracy and the girls st[...]

Meghan & Mike's Engagement | Chicago, IL | Wrigleyville & Lakeview

After this last weekend, the unbearable days of snow and cold in Chicago seem to be behind us. It's been a great winter, but I can't say I'm sad to see those days pass, and gladly welcome the warmth, the green, the driving with my windows down, and the summer days on the lake that await. However, back when winter was upon us, I had the opportunity to shoot Megh[...]

Kristin & Zach's Wedding | Patrick C. Hailey Mansion | Joliet, IL

Back in January, I had the privilege of capturing Kristin and Zach's wedding at the Patrick C. Hailey Mansion in Joliet. It doesn't take long with Kristin and Zach to realize how special of a couple they are. With starting married life together, they moved to Kentucky to serve at a church in Lexington and it was amazing to witness how many lives they have already [...]

Jaya & Luke's Wedding | Cafe Brauer & St. James Cathedral | Chicago, IL

I had the privilege of photographing Jaya and Luke's Cafe Brauer wedding earlier this summer and the entire day was incredible. Jaya and Luke were so much fun to work with and it's couples like them that make me love what I do. Their family and friends brought so much joy and excitement to the day and I loved getting to know them in the process as well. We bega[...]

Matt & Katie's Engagement | Chicago Sailboat Engagement

This engagement post stands as one of my favorites of all time. Sure there's the fact we had a beautiful day and had the opportunity to shoot it on a sailboat. And yes, it's of a good looking, fun couple. But even more so than that, it's a session that I got to shoot of two good friends. Matt and I have lived together the last 3.5 years and in the time he's become[...]

Katie & Blake's Chicago Wedding | Missio Dei & Cafe Brauer | Lincoln Park

Over the last month I have had the opportunity to shoot some incredible weddings and work with some amazing couples. I can't wait to share each of these wedding and engagement sessions with you here on the blog. I'm excited to kick it off with Katie and Blake's wedding at Cafe Brauer from last month. I was thrilled when Katie and Blake chose me as their wedding[...]
