Congratulations on following the butterflies in your stomach that led you to find your perfect partner. I am so excited for you!

I am a hybrid photographer, which means I shoot both digital and film. I started developing film in the darkroom over a decade ago and have followed my passion for the craft ever since. Film has that way of transforming an image into an heirloom. Making an image appear with light and silver was and still is something that makes the hairs on my arms stand up with excitement. I love the depth, tones, softness, and magic that is film. I hold my bachelors degree in Photography from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

I am a former Offbeat bride myself and love to work with couples of all styles. I am thrilled by partners who know their relationship is something to be celebrated not only on their wedding day but everyday, and who want to express the uniqueness of their partnership while they run, walk, dance or sing down the aisle. What’s important for me is capturing those moments for you so that you can remember them the day after, the year after, and when you’re rocking gray hair.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Want to ride off on a motorcycle, have a confetti party or bust out the disco balls? I love couples who curate their wedding day to their personalities. I believe you cannot have too much lace, tradition, or family recipes to detail your wedding day. I’m always excited to collaborate with my clients! I work with all couples, families, and individuals, no matter your race, sexual orientation, religion, age, ability, immigration status, etc. I am looking to expand my portfolio! If you don't see yourself represented here, and you'd like to be featured, please contact me!

I would love to be part of your wedding day and capture your memories so that your images look like you! My goal in working with you is to encourage you to be your fabulous self, be empowered, drop those shoulders and have some fun. I enjoy shooting quirky, creative, down to earth, and unapologetically unique clients who want to express their individuality. I am a natural light photographer with a documentary style. I want to tell the story of your day as it unfolds.

I would love to know more about you two! Contact me to chat more about your upcoming wedding.
