If you can't be silly, then why bother? Photo by Joe McNally

Hey guys and welcome! I'm originally from Chicago & now I live in Joliet. I take a TON of photos of my 2 daughters & strum my guitar on a daily basis. Now let's get down to the knitty-gritty :)

People have asked me "why focus on weddings & family portraits instead of models, cars & other cool stuff?" That's a good question and here's my answer: I grew up in a divorced home & have very few photographs of my family. I still wish we could've taken more pictures together from "regular" day-to-day things to formal family portraits. So now when I get to photograph a family, I make sure to take as many photos as I can because I know that those photographs will become treasures through time. Hopefully that wasn't too mushy of an answer. 

And how about weddings? I love weddings! They're the beginning of your family. They're about your family & friends getting dressed all fancy. They're about nerves & joy all mixed up in one crazy cool day. They're about crying & laughing out of shear happiness. They're about traditions, both old ones and about creating new ones. And the coolest thing for me is that I get to be a part of it - I get to document your wedding! You allow me full access to the most intimate moments of your wedding, and for that I'm grateful. My hope for every wedding I photograph is that you and your children will look back at these photos & laugh & feel closer to each other.
