Bloomington Normal IL Wedding Photographer

I am a Bloomington Normal IL wedding photographer.  About half of the weddings I photograph are located within 10 miles of our home while the others have me traveling for weddings in Peoria, Springfield, Champaign-Urbana, Effingham, Chicago and beyond.

Venues range from quaint rural farms like Proven Ground in Pekin, family homes to an array of Marriotts and Hiltons.  Although the towns and venues differ, what stays the same is the shared desire for wedding photos that tell the authentic story of your wedding day and to have it told in a visually creative way.

My approach will appeal to those couples who understand that a natural, mostly unchoreographed representation of their wedding day can be truly beautiful.  They wish to experience (and remember) the precious moments of their wedding day with family and friends without the constant fussing and intervention from their photographer.  They also appreciate thoughtful, well composed photography and have often searched through site after site looking for it.

If this sounds like you then we will all be on the same page.  Please call (309) 287-0848 or email
