I think that getting to know someone who will spend so much time with you on one of the most special days of your life is important because you don’t want to feel like a stranger is capturing your wedding! Here are some random facts about me!
I met my husband Jon during my senior year of college…He happened to be good friends with one of my neighbors. At the time, I never really thought much about him except for that he was nice and his nickname “Bosman” was kind of funny! Fast forward 3.5 years and we both landed in Chicago, and yes, Facebook was the magic behind it all. HA! He invited me to a St. Patrick’s Day party via my “wall” and the rest was history. Well, sort of. I had just gotten out of a long-term relationship and was very resistant to dating anyone. After a couple months of “dating”, my parents were visiting Chicago. Jon’s way of winning me over was telling me he wouldn’t meet my parents unless he was my “boyfriend”. I said, “Ok, fine, you are” and that was it.
Ever since I was 12, I wanted to live in Chicago. My brother Derek had a liver transplant at the U of C and it was there we solidified our family bond. We stuck together. Somehow my parents managed to keep balance, even with the stress they were under. I chased that time together and made Chicago my home.
My experiences in life have given photographs infinite value. I take capturing YOUR moments to heart.
I enjoy painting, cooking, and throwing on the potter’s wheel. I LOVE pop culture, E Entertainment, and Fashion. I always buy cosmetics even though I don’t usually wear much makeup. I live for trashy magazines like Us Weekly and Life and Style. I love shopping for new clothes and interior decor. I volunteer for the Ronald McDonald House as a Front Desk volunteer and donate to the Make-A-Wish foundation. I’m an organ donor. I love the beach and wearing flips flops. We just went to Europe for 2 weeks and I fell in love. I have 2 cats, George and Buddy. They’ll be my kids until we have some of our own :)
I strive to shoot a limited number of weddings each year to maintain a more personal experience and so that I never become “burned out.” I love what I do and I’m lucky that so many amazing couples have given me the opportunity to capture their love on such an important day!!
