Say goodbye to cookie-cutter wedding photos & overdramatic videos.

You’re working hard to plan a wedding full of personal touches and intentional choices. When you flip open your wedding album or press play on your highlight film, do you want to:

look at the same curated poses you’ve seen over and over on Instagram

relive the candid moments that feel like you in every way possible

You're in the right place

We might not be a great fit...

But here's an engagement gift for ya

You're in the right place

I’ll document your wedding & make you feel confident in front of the camera so you can:

Feel like yourself

Instead of rigid, step-and-repeat poses, we'll focus on capturing the raw emotions, subtle glances, and genuine laughs that show off your personalities.

Focus on the party

Let this enneagram 6 help you create a solid timeline & series of backup plans. That way you can stop stressing and focus on soaking up every second of your wedding.

Remember the details

Photos and videos of the big moments are important, but those little, seemingly insignificant moments? They're what you'll want to look back on decades from now

That's exactly what we want

Wedding Photographer + Videographer

Believe it or not, I didn't grow up day-dreaming about weddings.

Instead, I grew up on shaky home videos and weathered family albums—so I know how important it is to keep memories alive.

The problem? There are plenty of wedding photographers in Chicago that focus on trends over authenticity. That's why, in a world filled with filters + fads, I'm here to capture every real moment of your wedding day in a way that actually feels like you.

Before we get too ahead of ourselves...
