Why I photograph weddings: 

I enjoy capturing weddings because I love to tell stories through imagery. No two couples are the same, and I get excited about the challenge of telling a couple’s love story in a way that is unique to them. In my photography, I seek out those candid moments & emotions in the wedding day that truly matters to my couple. Moments that you’ll see 30 years from now & they instantly sweep you back into that time and remind you why you took the journey with your partner in the first place. That is what I aim to achieve when capturing weddings.

My favorite quote: 

“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”
― Annie Leibovitz

My favorite dessert: 

Cheesecake & Macaroons!

My favorite place to visit: 

Paris, France

My ideal Friday night: 

My ideal Friday night includes great pizza(it’s a religion in my household lol), great wine, crisp fall weather perfect for snuggling on the couch with the wife, and a great movie.

A little more about me: 

I’m a 39 year old born & raised Chicagoan who despite the many disappointments throughout the years, will NEVER give up on my BEARS lol! I love to travel(been to over 20 countries) and formed a 3 way love affair with Paris, NYC, & London many years ago that will never fade. I’ve been married to my amazing wife for 9 years & through her encouragement, found my love of photography over 5 years ago and never looked back. I live my life for the adventure of seeing new places, meeting new people, and spreading love wherever I go…
