My couples and their families compliment me on the dedication, time, and energy I put in to make them feel like they are my only clients. I learned that there are limits to how many events I can photograph each year in order to provide the best customer service and allow for time to hand-edit each photo.

Local Weddings

If you are getting married locally, I'd love to chat about how my photography could be a great fit for your wedding day and learn more about the type of photos you want. Because each event is one of a kind and each couple is unique, I customize each package based on personal needs and season. I call both Chicago and Boston "home" and know many of today's couples are planning their wedding "back home." I've had couples plan from cities such as New York, Denver, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Dallas, and San Francisco.

Boston Weddings

Whether you are having a cozy winter wedding in an historic hotel in Back Bay, an outdoor summer wedding on the Boston Harbor Islands, or a downtown wedding in the State Room overlooking autumn foliage, there are so many options. I've photographed in landmark churches such as the famed Trinity Church and Old South Church. I also have been selected as a wedding photographer to document celebrations in beautiful venues such as the Boston College Club, iconic estates, glamorous mansions, downtown hotels like the Omni Parker House and Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, and modern urban event spaces like art Artists for Humanity EpiCenter. I'd love to learn more about your wedding plans in the Hub after you've had a moment to check out my wedding photography portfolio!

Couples and wedding planners who are putting together celebrations in hip lofts, timeless clubs like the University Club of Chicago, Union League Club of Chicago and Casino Club, downtown hotels such as the Ritz Carlton Chicago or the dazzling Palmer House Hilton, and innovative new spaces know one of the important next steps is finding a photographer to capture the celebration of a lifetime.

Destination Weddings

After shooting architectural and hospitality photography throughout the country and world, I became an expert as a destination wedding photographer in efficiently packing the best photo gear that will work perfectly in a wide range of situations. Experience has taught me how to I am able to travel with ensure fragile, expensive cameras and lenses, and arrive to destinations on time. I've learned about allocating time for delays and adjusting to jet lag so that I am on top of my game when it comes to your shoot. In photographing a destination wedding, I take a fresh approach to looking new surroundings. I have worked with leading destination wedding planners who facilitate visas and logistics. Often times, resorts that provide wedding services photography services, but shooting at the same venue day-in-day-out would yield cookie cutter photos. Your wedding is more unique than that. You won't be restricted to receiving only a limited number of photos, or be forced to pay to upgrade to see the rest. Some of the many destination have traveled to for shoots include United Arab Emirates, Japan, Hawaii, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Toronto, Malibu, Austin, Newport Beach, Montréal, and New Orleans. I have traveled over 200,000 miles in the last five years and would love to join you on your journey as you tie the knot in the presence of your closest friends and family.

The sessions do not offer "smile at the camera" photos and instead are time I spend with you looking for real moments. Through this style of engagement session, I look to capture genuine joy between you both now that its "official." Rather than stress over "location," the main focus is on your interactions - playful banter, uncontrollable laughter, and some of those more tender moments.
