 I love my team -- the one with his tongue out doesn't usually come with, but he's my late-night-edits companion.

I love adventures, laughing, water and the sun.

Just about anywhere else


When I was seven my mom decided we needed some more recent and "professional" pictures of me. So she dressed me up real nice in some awkward overalls with a yellow sunflower and out to the backyard we went. After about three pictures I was fighting her for the camera because I thought I should be the one taking the pictures and that we really needed more pictures of her. That year for my birthday she bought me my first, top of the line, Barbie camera.


Ever since then I’ve been taking pictures, although now I have some better equipment.


I graduated from College of DuPage and their accredited photography program in 2010. Prior to graduation I worked various photography internships and freelance jobs alongside my professors. I was a reporter and photojournalist in western Kentucky until recently moving back to the Chicagoland area. 


I love traveling. I love destination weddings and exploring different destinations for portraits. I love working with strangers, who turn into friends, who selected me because they truly enjoy my photographs. 


My work speaks for my passion. Specializing in weddings, portraits and events - Striving to capture every magnificent moment.
