I am a Bloomington-Normal, Illinois based 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 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 the wedding day and to have it told in a visually creative way.

I invite you to view a few wedding day stories, read the client testimonials and then get in touch to find out if I still have the date available.
