Welcome to

I’m happy to be back from the long break of blogging and start off on a high note with this beautiful session featuring Jeff and Ashley! They chose Downtown Galena which has so many fun pastel colors and the sunset hits the city gorgeously. I can’t help but smile at these!!

A stunning Fall wedding with a couple that will steal your heart. These two are absolutely adorable and I am so happy they tied the knot on one of the most gorgeous days at Oak Hill Farm. It was a not too hot, not too cold kind of day with the leaves lightly floating off […]

Excited to be sharing a beautiful day celebrating the marriage of Brian and Amanda at Oak Hill Farm in Galena, Illinois. These two had glowing contagious smiles the whole day which only grew bigger as the night went on. All the way from getting ready in the morning to busting out moves on the dance […]

I’ve been looking forward to photographing Dillon and Kyleen’s wedding since they reached out to me in 2018. It feels like forever ago, since that’s when I first started photographing weddings!  They were among many couples whose wedding plans kept changing due to the pandemic.

When I first met Bill and Jessica, I learned they are from Lombard which is the town I grew up in. I live in Madison Wisconsin now, so talking to them at their engagement shoot, even though they drove to Madison felt like a taste of home. And I know.. I know.. Madison is only […]

Lauren and Anthony, So many great things so say about this beautiful couple. I met these two in my early college years. Anthony is my cousin’s fraternity brother, and I lived with my cousin at the time so we all hung out in the same group. I later met Lauren through my cousins then girlfriend […]

It’s always an honor getting chosen to capture a wedding day. Especially a wedding day of a fellow creative. As a photographer, I love taking my camera to family events, vacations, wherever my loved ones are – I gotta have it! That is the same for our groom, Andrew! Our job was to make sure […]

David and I had the pleasure of meeting these two high school sweethearts a year before their wedding at their Oak Hill engagement session. Our first impression of them was how kind and easy they were to work with. They are so at ease and relaxed with each other and that same energy flowed throughout […]
