quick facts about me
In the years I’ve been involved with photography, graphic design, and marketing, I’ve learned to appreciate all the small things that make up the beautiful world we live in. Through my various lenses, I am able capture special moments with true emotion and translate them into art.

Photography runs deep within my blood. There are two things I love about photography. The first is the ability to capture your story, and documenting all of your special moments. The second thing I love is interacting with my clients. I love being able to get to know our clients and their families. We have the opportunity to quietly observe and capture moments of their love, personalities, movements, gestures and depth. It’s the greatest honor we could ever have.
My belief is that everything in life should be well designed! Driven by a vast knowledge in Graphic Design as well as my past experience serving as a lead designer and marketing manager for several companies I have had the opportunity to apply a bit of psychology and design theory to every design, I like to call it “designs with a purpose”.
I have had the privilege of working with some amazing organizations that has shaped and molded my eye for design and photography. Some of these include: Oakwood University Church as Marketing Director, Breath of Life Television Ministry as Marketing Director, Voices of Triumph Gospel Ministries as Marketing Director, and Dynamic Performance Physical Therapy as Marketing Director.

I am a forward thinking, motivated and creative professional graphic designer and photographer based in the beautiful city of Chicago, Illinois who specializes in weddings, portraits, and events throughout Illinois and around the United States.
I began my business as a professional photographer and graphic designer in 2005 and have photographed hundreds of weddings, numerous other events, and many engagement and bridal portrait sessions. One of my main passions is wedding photography. I enjoy employing my photojournalistic, documentary style approach to the craft of wedding photography. Although I do of course capture the standard group formals and portraits of the bride and groom or couple during a wedding, the bulk of my wedding day coverage consists of unobtrusively capturing the beauty, splendor, and emotion of the day. My style is not traditional, but also not excessively artsy or eccentric. My couples and their guests frequently tell me that they found me to be very easy going and pleasant to work with.
In conjunction with graphic design and photography, I spend my time working in mentoring and educating young people in the educational and social services fields.
I have been privileged to have many of my works published in magazines, online blogs, billboards and social media platforms for various notable clients. I have many passions in life but photography and graphic design are definitely in the forefront and where I spend most of my time. I consider myself incredibly blessed to be doing what I do, and I try to share my passion for photography and graphic design with everyone that I have the privilege to work with!
