special events

I'm based in the suburbs of Chicago IL and yes I'd be happy + love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. I believe the best love stories happen in the wildest of places.

where are you based and do you travel?

My style is romantic, timeless and vintage inspired. My approach is documentarian, full of emotion and candid moments with a mix of artistic and editorial vibes. My edits are warm and full of vivid natural colors. 

How would you describe your photography style?

No, I do not give out raw photos.
Editing the images in my style is an important step, and without it, the photos would be left unfinished. 

Do you give out raw images?

Approximately 2 weeks for hour sessions,
8 weeks for weddings and 14 weeks for peak wedding season. (May, June, September & October
You will receive  sneak peaks within the week after your session/event. You will receive all of your photos through a hi-res online gallery that you can share with your friends and family. Your gallery is emailed to you and images are easy to download to your computer and phone.

When will we get our photos?

Yes! if you don't see a package that has what you are looking for, I'd be happy to work with you and create a custom package that fits your needs. I have an add on section in my pricing you wish to add one of those services. 

Do you create custom packages?

I do not work/ photograph any session or event on Saturday due to my religious observance day. It is my Sabbath and is not something I will compromise on. I appreciate you respecting that! 

Why are you unavailable saturday's?
