Hi y'all!! I'm one half of a husband and wife photography team based in Chicago, IL. With the experience of photographing over 300 weddings, I have come to understand that a wedding day is not about the must have backdrop or the latest Pinterest trend, and it’s definitely not about those perfect laid out details. For me, the priority will always be the couple, the emotions, and the story of their day. Real moments made by real people in love. That’s what matters.
I specialize in wedding photojournalism through creatively using natural and artificial lighting.

We cannot thank you enough!!! The pictures are everything we hoped for and more. We seriously are so blown away. I cannot get over the way you edited them. You guys are so freaking talented. Every shot is just too good to be true and we have been re-living that day ever since you sent the gallery. So many tears and smiles and laughter. We need to find another excuse to work with you guys again! So so so happy with how they turned out. :) Thanks again!
