I love love! And I REALLY love documenting love. It brings me so much joy being able to be part of a couple beginning their life together. Marriage truly is an adventure and I think that's a perfect way to describe my shooting style. I want to capture personalities in their truest form! So what makes you tick as a couple? Do you love hiking? Great! let's find an awesome place to spend the day capturing you and your spouse in your element for your engagement shoot. Do you love getting dressed up and strutting through the city? Great! Let's get you two all dolled up and make a day of strolling through your favorite parts of town. Basically, let's have fun together. My job is to build a relationship with my couples and document them doing what makes them the most joyful and full of life. I am ALWAYS down for an out of the box shoot in a fun location. As for your wedding day, I want to be a fly on the wall. I capture the most intimate details, the things that you will cherish most when looking back on that day. I am all about having fun with my couples and helping them relax and enjoy their moments together, as the day really does fly by. I almost always aim for getting more photos of interactions, moments, emotion, rather than super posed/stiff portraits because I think that tends to represent people more honestly.
A few things to know about me:
-I'm a Chicago native and that city will forever have a huge part of my heart
-My mom called me the "carb queen" when I was little, but that name still holds as true today as it did years ago because I could live on bread (and ice cream) alone
-I'm terrified of frogs
- I'd choose watching the sunrise over the sunset any day
