Q:  How long have you been an awesome photographer?

A:  Aww, thank you!  I have been a professional photographer since 2005.  I moved to the windy city to attend The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and it was here that I fell in love with photography and my future husband.  The city by the lake is home to my dream business and my loving little family.  I love photographing in and around Chicago, but frequently travel to destinations outside of this fair city and state.

Q: How would you describe your style?

A:  Vibrant, Personal, Elegant, Authentic, and Unexpected.  I love capturing real moments that give me goosebumps, or get me teary eyed behind my lens. I’m looking for genuine laughter, great reactions, and palpable emotions.  Without getting too corny– weddings are a slice of life, and life is beautiful.  My style naturally changes to fit who YOU are.  I don’t know how many times I’ve heard from clients that the photos “captured who we are as a couple.”  And that is the highest compliment.  Let’s make some great portraits and let’s capture all the fun as it happens, with style.

Q: We’re awkward photo takers, can you help us?

A:  Man, if I had a BEAUTIFUL set of photos for every time I’ve heard this… oh wait, I do!  I will guide you without stiffly posing you, and let you experience the beauty of letting go.  I love showing people the beauty of being themselves. Tip: Engagement Shoots are great practice, too!

Q:  When do we receive our final photos, and how many photos will there be?

A: Approximately 6 weeks after your wedding, your online gallery and slideshow will go live!  Your beautiful high resolution images will then be ready for downloading.  The number of final photos varies based on the number of hours and photographers in your wedding day package.  But generally speaking, you can expect 50-100 glorious photos per hour of coverage.
