My style is more Life Magazine than People Magazine. I work to capture your day as it unfolds. I don’t want to create a series of photo opportunities, I want to capture great images of the day of your dreams. I love shooting weddings and my Mom and my kids both tell me my photos are great. I’ve had a lot of practice in the commercial photography world and I shot my first wedding over 15 years ago. I teach photography too, at Columbia College Chicago. It’s just kind of in my blood, when I have a day off I go out and take pictures. And the great thing is that even after all these years whenever I get a chance to go out and shoot someone’s special day I get excited. Know two are ever the same. That’s the fun part. That’s why I can’t wait to shoot yours!

    I met Doug nine years ago when he did my sister’s wedding. The pictures that came from her wedding were stunning, and even though almost a decade had passed, when I got engaged I knew I wanted Doug to be the photographer for it.
    Doug, my fiancé, and I first met up to do the engagement pictures in Chicago. Doug was open and flexible about meeting times and locations, and while I had a few ideas of where I wanted to do shots, Doug offered up his expertise, and the combination of locations made for beautiful engagement pictures. On that day Doug spent over three hours with us, talking, catching up, laughing and making sure we got all of the pictures we would want.
    Our wedding day with Doug was even better. Leading up to the big day, Doug was easy going when schedules had to change.Throughout the day Doug made me feel at ease, and the pictures truly show that. In the bridal room he made sure to capture all the small details: the hanger with my new last name, the bride to be sign on the bed, the veil draped over the door, the intricate lace on my dress...everything.
    When we headed over to the ceremony Doug did a great job coordinating the formal shots with a large wedding party, large families (46 people!), not a lot of time, and sweltering heat. He even sat with the bridal party in a stifling room before the ceremony and still managed to capture moments of laughter and nervousness as the celebration was about to begin. In addition to all that he even had a bridal kit with him in case of emergencies, such a professional!
    Throughout the ceremony and reception though, Doug did what I love most about his style of photography. He captured people as they really were on that day. He spent the day finding people smiling, laughing, crying, talking, dancing and enjoying the celebration. That is what my husband and I wanted most out of our day, and we are so lucky to have had Doug as our photographer to capture those moments most dear to us.
    I cannot recommend him enough!
