Award Winning Bloomington-Normal & Chicago IL Wedding Photography

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 family farms 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 wish to experience (and remember) the precious moments of their wedding day with family and friends.  They appreciate thoughtful, well composed photography and have often searched through site after site looking for it.

If this sounds like you, get in touch to find out if I am available by calling (309) 287-0848 or via email
