and my


a little

People who haven't seen my work often ask me what style I work in. My answer is complicated, yet simple: My style is really a method. I work empathetically, passionately and eclectically. The results are often fun, sensual, artsy and contemporary, but always honest. Documentary? Photojournalistic? Maybe. Real? Definitely.

While family formals are always on the list of wedding "dos", I specifically work to capture the individual qualities of each couple and the special ambiance of each wedding. No detail is off limits, no love story too big to tell and I ensure that every bride and groom will remember their day not just with pictures, but with art. I recently added the phrase "for those who love love to my logo" because it's true. My photos are for men & women, parents, lovers, best friends - anyone who loves love.

I am an Atlanta native but met a wonderful Milwaukeean who I eventually married in 2004. After receiving a B.A. in Art (Photography) at Smith College in 2001 and a Master of Architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2005, I happily relocated to Milwaukee's Third Ward with our cat and a bunch of camera gear. I practice many passions in my life, including art, photography, architecture, travel, running, and teaching - all of which make me a better photographer.

I was accepted to the Wedding Photojournalist Association in 2008 and have photos in many magazines and on-line publications. Check out the PRESS page for more recent publications! Become a fan on Facebook and be updated when new engagement and wedding sessions are posted.

While I mostly do Wisconsin and Chicago wedding and family photography I am available for shoots anywhere in the world, including destination weddings.
