Why do you see yourself as being Modern, Vintage, Classic, or Eclectic?

I would consider my style modern with pops of vintage. I focus on capturing images that I hope to be classic and therefore timeless for you to remember and celebrate ten years down the road.

What is your favorite wedding detail you’ve ever seen or created?

An impossible answer! I love capturing fine details that not everyone may see the day of, but they can remember forever. I shot a wedding at Chicago’s Newberry Library and the bride created a book with the pages glued together, with a heart cut out of the center of the pages. The rings were then tied to the book with twine and carried down the aisle. The entire library theme perfectly came together!

What is your favorite store or brand?

For your registry, Target or Crate & Barrel. For the day-to-day, Anthropologie. For wedding gowns, BHLDN. For bridal jewelry and accessories, twigs & honey. For unique finds for your big day, thrift and antique stores. (Or, for all of the above, Etsy.) For men’s suits, J.Crew.

What is your favorite thing about weddings?

The first look. There is nothing like capturing the intimacy of that moment. Watching the pre-wedding nerves fade as a bride and groom hold each other gets me every time. That and the father/daughter dance…I’m a total daddy’s girl.

What qualities do you possess that enable you to work well with brides and grooms?

Patience, friendliness, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to create a visual story of your day. I’ve been told that I feel like “one of the family” which I take as such a high compliment! At the same time, I am a very time-conscious person, which allows me to collaborate with other vendors in keeping your day on track.

What steps do you take to ensure that your clients will have amazing wedding days when working with you?

I make a point of responding quickly to all inquiries, I love getting to know my clients and their stories, and I make a point to stay available until our final meeting a few weeks prior. I’m open to building custom packages, and I enjoy providing timing and day-of guidance. All this serves to make each of my brides’ lives easier.
