About Me

Being a photographer has always been more than a job to me. Even after all these years, It’s something I’m still extremely passionate about. I love being a wedding photographer in Chicago! My job gives me an exciting insight into the love that a couple has for each other. It gives me the chance to immortalize their most special moments.

From Art School to Professional Photographer
My pursuits have always been creative. I studied illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Learning about illustration taught me about composition and lighting. It also helped me have a better understanding of the human form.I picked up photography in Chicago to help me make more lifelike illustrations. But I ended up falling in love with photography even more than illustration. Although my medium of choice has changed, my love for creative expression has never dwindled. I’ve learned from all forms of art how to be a great photographer.

Today I’m based out of Park Ridge, Illinois, where I live with my wife and two beautiful daughters. However, I work with clients all over the Chicago area. I know the importance of getting great family photos because I’ve been there myself.

When it comes to weddings, everyone is different. But there’s one major commonality: it’s a special day. You want everything to be lovely and memorable. I want that too! I’ll make sure that your photos reflect your personal style and showcase what makes your love unique.Your photos should be one-of-a-kind because you’re a one-of-a-kind couple.

No matter how long you’ve been working at a job, I believe there’s always more to learn and ways to improve. I’m always trying to push myself and perfect my skills. New photography equipment is constantly being created, and I do my best to adapt to the industry changes. I strive to be a lifelong learner in my field.
