    Russ was the favorite vendor at our wedding and we had a lot of great ones! My aunt and brother were taking a lot of photos and videos during our wedding and he was way more accommodating than he needed to be (we didn't need the extra photos, I just put that there to highlight his flexibility). Everyone he interacted with said he was great and we couldn't agree more. He went with the flow of the day how we wanted, took a tour of the site before shooting to make sure we had all the best light and settings, took many posed and action shots, and overall did a perfect job capturing our special day. He has competitive prices and will arrange a package that best works for you. If we lived in the area, we'd want to hang out with him and Heather (his assistant), they're that incredible. We loved everything about his work- I mean, just look at those pictures! Go hire him, he's THE BEST!

    I cannot recommend Russ highly enough. Aside from being extraordinarily talented, Russ is warm and friendly and easy to connect with, which I believe is essential when picking a wedding photographer. Russ makes shooting lots of fun and is as strong of a storyteller as he is a photographer. He also has a deep supply of TV recommendations should you be in need! :)

    So my fiance and I are Chicago natives that currently live in Houston. For our engagement pictures, we wanted to capture the love we have for each other, but also the love we have for Chicago. With various locations in mind and no previous experience getting pictures taken of us, we were a bit nervous about the whole experience.

    Russ went above and beyond to not only conduct an amazing photo session but he did it with a great balance of professionalism and levity. His demeanor and masterful execution caused us to get the most out of of each location. His keen perception allowed him to craft and achieve genuine pictures of my fiance and I. His artistry was palpable and collaborative as he always checked in with us to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Also, as someone who is not a Chicago Native, he made sure that he had researched areas and familiarized himself with the city beforehand. This level of preparation really amazed us.

    And probably most important was that my fiance and I had fun! A lot of fun! We have amazing pictures but we also have fantastic memories of that day. Not only does Russ provide excellent service, he also brings his authentic self. He is kind, patient and hilarious. Spending time with him was a treat in itself. I couldn't imagine having anybody else making these memories with us.
