Where do we start?
From the moment we meet, I will happily provide clarity regarding your wedding day timeline. I'll help you envision exactly what you want regarding your photographs. After all, no two weddings are alike and weddings happen fast. Really fast. Experience is everything, and experience affords me the skill to deliver what suits you and your planned or unplanned imagination.
People ask me all the time if I enjoy my job. Being a wedding photographer, I am lucky to be granted front row seats to the most loving moments in life- period. Guests and your loved ones will fly in, hopefully comb their hair and dress to impress; shower you with hugs and kisses. Grandparents will watch and remember and smile with their eyes. Grumpy uncles, who everybody warns us about, will suddenly shine. Tears will be shed, tight hugs will temporarily stop time and most of these details will inevitably fade from memory... until a couple of weeks after your wedding day, when those defining moments will be lovingly delivered, but this time as a visual storyline... timeless photographs... nostalgia relived.
I studied art history and film based photography at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Eventually I switched to digital and for over a decade, I've documented weddings with the highest quality cameras. I’ve collaborated with close to 250 couples from diverse cultural backgrounds. I’ve partaken in ancient Ketubah signing rituals, Greek Orthodox ceremonies, Croatian pig roasts and slivovica toasts, timeworn Catholic masses, lovely Mehndi parties, age-old Chinese tea drinking ceremonies and dragon dance traditions. I’ve sat next to Indian couples under the sacred Mandap, and quietly shimmied around Chuppahs during elaborate Jewish ceremonies. I’ve even caught a grandpa that was falling down a flight of stairs at a wedding. And after it all, I thoroughly enjoy prepping my gear and having a good breakfast with my assistant before diving right into a new wedding day.
