BRUNCH STYLE WEDDING
Perfect for those who want a garden-style wedding and prefer their guests in casual attire. Brunch weddings start very early with the "getting ready" portion and can be crunched on time leading up to the ceremony, but the payoff is a relaxing garden party afterwards. Think Mimosas, colorful bow ties and fun hats, and yard games or relaxing pool-side.
Need help with choosing vendors?
It's all in the details
want to find the best vendors that i partner with?
Think of your wedding day details as the foundation on which to build your wedding day theme. Your details will help tell your story in a way that nothing else will. Many couples overlook this part, but I highly encourage as much thought going into this as the venue itself! Invest in the details that mean the most to you first and go from there.
About the Experience
From the very first encounter, it is my sincere intention to help you define what you would like your day or session to look like and then bring it to life in front of the lens.
My approach is well-thought-out, meaningful, and designed to capture all of the moments as they unfold. The prompts I give or the way I guide you into position - it all serves a purpose. Think of your images as an unveiling of the story you just gave. I take what's happening organically and combine it with my artistic interpretation that is inspired by God to give you my very best. My hope is that you will treasure both the candid moments and the simple, prompted ones for many years to come!
I’d call it storytelling, With a note of contemporary art and traditional elegance.

Serving primarily Illinois, the Chicago suburbs, western Michigan, & Wisconsin, I will still travel anywhere to capture your story! All of those meaningful moments - whether they're in the sunshine, wind, or rain, should be told. I sincerely appreciate my couples that invite me into those intimate moments and trust me to tell their story. My wedding collections start at $3,500 and include timeline planning, gallery with downloads, print release and an additional photographer.
02. Family Photography
I was once asked by a client if I preferred shooting family sessions over weddings or vice versa. He was a new father and also one of my previous couples. Up until that point we had done their wedding, their maternity session, and now we had just wrapped up their first newborn session. My answer was quite simple - ALL of it! I LOVE being with my clients every step of the journey. From the beginning of "she said yes" through all of your milestones, I want to be there through them all. To be able to have that kind of relationship with your clients feels so incredibly special and a gift I will never take for granted!

Whether you're just getting started or you've decided that your business needs a facelift, my background in interior design often comes in very handy when it comes to consulting with fellow creatives and small business owners. Sometimes it's just easier to talk through the process or simply hand it over. In either case, I've got you covered! Let's chat! My consulting starts at $150 and includes a 1-hr brainstorming session where we hash out the direction you need to take.
