Hello, I’m Joshua

Chicago Wedding Photographer

I create elegant & authentic wedding heirlooms for timeless couples.

As your wedding photographer, I can promise you three things:


Your love is beautiful, and your wedding photographs should be, too. I’ll help you select the best outfits and locations for beautiful photographs, and when we turn the lights down for the reception, I’ll be there with a full professional lighting kit so your images are bright and clean all the way until the send-off.


No fake or forced poses here. Every wedding portrait begins with simple, easy to follow prompts to help you and your partner feel comfortable in front of the camera. Together, we will create genuine moments and memories as we tell your love story through photographs.


Marriage is a lifelong commitment, and after vows and rings, there’s no better reminder of that promise than a set of heirloom photographs you can treasure for years to come. I’ll help you to create an heirloom album handcrafted with archival quality materials so you can display and enjoy your memories for years to come.


I believe that marriages are forever, that memories are more important than likes, and the most important part of every wedding day is the partnership it launches. Heirloom photographs are among the few things that remain with you after your celebration; together, we will create elegant and authentic images that will serve as anchors and reminders of the timeless commitment you make to each other.

I’ve told over 50 love stories


As a Chicagoland resident for over 10 years, I know the city like an old friend, and what’s not to love? Chicago has some of the absolute best sights, venues, and food. I think Chicago is by far the best place to be planning your wedding. I love all of the venues and unique photo locations the metro area has to offer, but I wanted to highlight just a few of my favorites: Navy Pier, the Lincoln Park Nature Boardwalk, and the Lehmann Mansion.
