        Elopement Wedding in Nosara – Inna and Moritz

I love being able to connect, listen, and provide options to help personalize the wedding photography. I  was delighted to learn that Inna herself is a professional photographer in...

          Event Photography – Holiday Party at Brooklyn Boulders Chicago

          Brooklyn Boulders is new to Chicago’s west loop neighborhood.  They had a big holiday party for members of the climbing club.  The event featured beer, print making, music by Celine Neon, and on-site tattoo-ing!  No climbing that day, but being in the space definitely made me want to check it out!

              Casual Summer Days – Chicago Family Photographer

              Those days at the end of summer… autumn hovers around the corner, the garden yields baby tomatoes, the air is humid, and it is a warm, slow, sunny day. I met up with Maike (a returning Chicago family portrait client and fellow DePaul alum) and her two children for playful portraits.   Showing Mom one of the...
