More than likely, you have landed on this page as you begin (or perhaps end) the search for your wedding photographer.  If so, congratulations with your engagement!

I live in Bloomington Normal, Illinois about a couple of hours south of Chicago with my wife and our two children. About half of the weddings I photograph are located within 10 miles of our home while others have me traveling to Peoria, Springfield, Champaign Urbana, 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 our shared desire for wedding photos that tell the authentic story of their wedding day, and to have it told in a creative way.  

I invite to explore the various pages in the website.  Then do get in touch to say hello and find out if I still have the date available to photograph your wedding.      309.287.0848
