From their engagement shoot to the wedding reception, this couple made me laugh! Tommy and Sam are perfect for each other and it was an honor to photograph them creating a life together. Church: St. Thecla Reception: Chateau Ritz Outdoor Photos: Niles veteran Memorial Waterfall
I had the privilege of photographing a latte art competition presented by Slayer Espresso and hosted by Everybody’s Coffee in Uptown, Chicago. It was a blast and thanks to all involved for making this a memorable event for me :) Congrats to the winners: Will Eder from Dark Matter Coffee, Lee Sill of Quills Coffee, and John Petrenko of Bow Truss Coffee Roasters.
I get a bunch of inspiration from simply walking in nature. Even in winter there are subtle signs of life all around us; lush moss forests, moist fungus cliffs and even fresh compost. From our perspective, everything seems either dead or hibernating but if you get real close and pay attention to the details, life clearly still thrives. This resilience reminds me that even in the most difficult conditions, one can still flourish.
