Tara’s Outdoor River Gorge Bridal Shoot | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

I love it when a shoot is conceived spontaneously–I was getting my hair styled by the amazingly talented Tara Tussing, and she mentioned that she was getting married in a few weeks.  I asked if she would be interested in doing a bridal photo session after her wedding, and she absolutely was!  Tara wanted to try something artistic and interesting, […]

Eric and Karie’s Picturesque Outdoor Starved Rock Wedding | Chicago Wedding Photographer

When Karie and I first talked, she described her unique (and challenging!) dream wedding–a nighttime ceremony in a forest in northern Illinois in the winter.  I think I surprised her by responding, “Sounds awesome, let’s do it!” What unfolded on an unseasonably warm November day was moment after moment of beauty.  From the rays of sunlight […]

Chris & Saki’s Pretty Plein-Air Japanese Celebration | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

What an incredible wedding!  We took some photos in one of my all-time favorite locations–architectural gem Music Hall, overlooking Washington Park–and then headed to Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park, where Saki and Chris tied the knot in a picturesque green field.  Just before the reception under the pavilion, a terrific storm blew through, complete with rain and […]

Justine and Christian’s Classic Black Tie Wedding at Meson Sabika | Chicago Wedding Photographer

As soon as I met Christian, I knew he and Justine’s wedding would be a classy, stylish affair–Christian is a Chicago-based DJ who owns his own company, Mode Events, and described to me a beautiful ceremony at St. Francis with one heck of an afterparty at Meson Sabika!

Tom and Toni’s Elegant Polish & Croatian Wedding at the Montgomery Club | Chicago Wedding Photographer

It was an absolutely perfect sunny day in Lincoln Park, and Tom and Toni were nearly bursting with excitement.  Even before they saw each other, the joy on their faces was obvious.  Toni and Tom are just the happiest, goofiest, and completely head-over-heels couple I’ve had the pleasure to shoot, and I could not have felt […]

Amit & Shital’s Hindu Wedding at the Lexington Hilton | Kentucky Indian Wedding Photographer

Amit and Shital’s wedding in the downtown Lexington Hilton was one for the books, folks: a whirlwind of color, emotion, dancing, traditions, and–most of all–love!  As a photographer, it was a blast to capture the myriad details, textures, and loving glances between Shital and Amit, as they pledged their lives together.

Doug & Queena’s Luxurious Contemporary Wedding at the W Chicago City Center | Chicago Wedding Photographer

From the moment we shared a round of morning Bloody Marys at their engagement session, I knew–without a doubt–that Doug and Queena’s wedding was going to be a BLAST.  And let me tell you, dear readers, this group definitely puts the ‘party’ in ‘wedding party.’  (Haaa, see what I did there?!  Apparently I can’t write […]

Brittany and Eric’s Springtime Chicago Engagement Session | Chicago Wedding Photographer

It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Chi-town, tailor-made for Brittany & Eric’s engagement session.  I couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better couple!  Eric and Brittany are incredibly sweet and fun to be around.  They were super patient while we waited for pedestrians to pass (and then more pedestrians… and a few moooore…) down by […]

Paige & Ethan’s Fun-Filled Winter Engagement Starring Max the Dog | Cincinnati Wedding Photographer

Ethan and Paige are one of the most fun-loving, adventurous couples I’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot.  We headed out to Ault Park and Over-the-Rhine to enjoy one of the last fresh snowfalls of the season and get some awesome photos.  Their dog, Max, is a total sweetheart (and photo ham), and enjoyed playing […]

Stephanie & Sean’s Romantic Valentine’s Day Wedding at the Hyatt | Chicago Wedding Photographer

Stephanie and Sean’s luxurious wedding took place on Valentine’s Day–how fitting, to celebrate their new life together and the love of their friends and families attending!  After a beautiful service at St. James and a frigid romp in the park (we’re talking below zero Fahrenheit, folks–Stephanie and Sean are SUCH TROOPERS), the blush and gold reception and […]
