Photography is a compulsive reaction for me. I simply love the craft. Always having been told I can’t sit still, I thrive on the unexpected, which for me comes with the ultimate sense of freedom. I’m definitely a vagabond at heart. Trained as an architect, I got swept by wonderlust early on, but it’s been long-term travel experience that made me realize how much I enjoy documenting life, people, and their stories through photography.
As I made a transition to wedding photography, extracting essence from the moment and place became as much an aspiration as it is a privilege. Those intimate moments in between, heavy with anticipation, raw, are where the story lies. Emotions are at the core of every wedding and the fact that I get to participate as an active observer-photographer, as a stranger (more or less), is an incredibly humbling experience. I greatly value spontaneity and prefer to minimally interfere as the events of your day organically develop. My focus is on telling your unique story and I always give it my all.
I’m based in Chicago but jump at every opportunity to travel, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch, wherever your story is about to unfold.
