My passion for photography began in high school, when I took a class and knew right away that I would want to continue to pursue it on some level for the rest of my life. Through numerous cameras, countless hours of training, and lots of perseverance, I gained the experience I needed to quit my full-time job and pursue photography full time. I have now been a professional photographer in the Chicago suburb of Lake Zurich for over 10 years.

In July 2010, I married my best friend, Laura. Shortly after, we moved to Lake Zurich, and we’re now the proud parents of three beautiful children. It’s through those experiences that I’ve continued to shape the way I approach my work, especially wedding and engagement photos, family portraits, newborn photography, and other special event photography.


As a professional photographer who specializes in capturing people and events, I believe there’s so much more to what I do than pressing the shutter or just taking pictures. With each photo, my goal is to evoke emotion, and this begins with not only making the people on the other side of the lens feel comfortable, but also confident that they’re creating memories they’ll cherish for years to come. Whether soothing a newborn baby, joking around with your toddler during a family portrait session in a forest preserve, or having a pre-wedding meeting with a couple a week before their wedding day, I’m committed to making sure that everyone I work with can feel my attention to detail, and that each photo I capture will stand the test of time.


The ability to capture a moment in time that will be looked back upon and remembered years from now may be photography at its most basic level, but it’s the part of my work that I love most. As cliché as it sounds, I am truly blessed to wake up every day, and do what I love.

Outside of photography, I also absolutely love travel. exploring new places, experiencing new cultures. and, (most importantly), trying new restaurants, dishes, and cuisines.


While, as a young family, we may find ourselves taking more road trips and fewer flights to exotic destinations, I am just as happy to be the guy that is constantly stopping the car to take pictures, go on walks, and explore new areas (camera in hand, of course), and I can easily stretch what would be a few-hour road trip into a full day's adventure.


Thanks again for taking the time to learn more about me, my work, and my portfolio. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about my photography, or anything included as part of the packages. While my photography business is based in Lake Zurich in Lake County, IL, I’m available throughout the Chicago area and surrounding suburbs with no travel charge unless previously discussed. I am also available for traveling throughout the United States- and beyond!


I look forward to hearing from, meeting, and working with you.
