My Story


I’ve been in your shoes.
Three years ago, I proposed to my girlfriend under the Christmas lights at the Lincoln Park Zoo…

And then I started counting down the days until June 23rd, 2018 — the date I would marry my wife at our small suburban church in Lincolnshire, IL.

I married my best friend.

I can’t recall all the details about our wedding day, but I do remember how I felt when Jasmine came walking down the aisle: That she was the one for me and I would marry her again and again.

Whenever I look at our wedding photographs on the wall, or page through our wedding album, I’m reminded of that feeling.

That’s why I believe in serving couples who are deeply in love and committed to each other for the long haul.

Creating beautiful heirlooms together is just one way we can celebrate and anchor your lifelong commitment to each other.

Get Know Your
Wedding Photographer

I asked Jasmine to be my girlfriend with the infamous one-liner, “So, I like you…what do you want to do about it?” Fortunately for me, she knew exactly what she wanted, and replied without missing a beat, “Do you want me to be your girlfriend and make it Facebook official?” You could say the rest was history. (And in case you’re wondering, I did a much better job with the proposal. I wrote a personalized song and sang to her!)

After we had been together for a while, Jasmine told me she first decided we could be friends and get to know each other because I had biceps. Fitness is still important in our relationship together. During warmer months, we love staying active by taking our daughter for walks around the nature trail in our subdivision. Jasmine is a competitive CrossFitter turned #PelotonMom. I like to lift weights in our garage gym.

We love doing life together, and our church community is like our second family. We are so thankful for the people who build us up and help us grown in love and marriage.

Connection

Before I pick up the camera, I want to get to know the real you by investing in your story and understanding what brought you to this moment, with a ring on your finger and “I do” ahead of you. The more I know what makes your love story special, the better I can serve you on your wedding day.

02

Commitment & Strategy

When you choose me as your wedding photographer, you’re not just another client — you’re family. I’ll partner with you to help you look your absolute best at your engagement session and thoughtfully plan a photography timeline for peace of mind on the big day.

Enjoy the Moment

I’ve developed a posing process that helps you feel natural and beautiful, and most importantly lets you be in the moment and enjoy your partner and your wedding day. You might even forget the camera is there!

Celebrate Your Legacy

It’s not “goodbye” when the dance lights go off at the end of the night. Together, we’ll build a museum-quality album so you can cherish and relive your memories over and over again.

Have peace of mind knowing your most important memories won’t be missed.

It is very important that I partner with the right couples, so I accept a limited number of weddings each year. You deserve the absolute best!
