Let my start by saying thank you for taking the time to look at my work. I recognize there are many photographers out there to choose from and I am truly humbled each and every time someone considers me to document a significant event in their life.
My style and approach is best described as editorial.
When it comes to documenting weddings, for the majority of the day I stay very hands off, focusing 100% on the story. You won’t find me asking your friends to stage or recreate moments, but you will find me ready to photograph those moments before they even happen.
During portraits, it’s a little different. I give plenty of direction, working to bring creative ideas and techniques to make images that are as unique as the people in them. Though I do direct during portraits, my intentions are to capture those candid moments in between the poses to give you honest, natural photos.
I am a proud military veteran, father and husband. I hold an Associate of Arts in Photography, Bachelor of Arts in Business and have over thirty years of varied and unique experience behind the camera that includes over twenty-five years working as a CSI / Forensic Photographer and twelve years photographing weddings. In addition to my own clients I enjoyed five seasons working as a lead wedding photographer with one of the most popular studios in Chicago and have documented well over one hundred weddings ranging in size from just a few guests to over five hundred and have been blessed with the opportunity to shoot in some of Chicagoland’s most sought after venues. I live in the western suburbs of Chicago with my rather large family and our Siberian Husky, Juno. However, what really matters is that you love the work you see here and want something like it for yourself.
