PHOTOGRAPHER. DOG DAD. COFFEE FANATIC.
Hey, I'm Kevin, a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Chicago along with my fur child, an energetic Siberian Husky named Qi'ra (nerdy Star Wars reference). I'm a lifelong Chicago native, Cubs fan, and fancy coffee aficionado minus the handlebar mustache.
When I'm not behind a camera I'm usually planning my next travel getaway or trying to stay active at the gym or on a hike. That, or lounging on the couch eating way too much pizza while watching Netflix ... but no, definitely the first one, I swear.
I am obsessed with emotion and light in my images. These are the qualities that, to me, elevate photography and make it a powerful art form in our lives
My photography origin story ...
or something like that
Like most things, once I get bit by an interest I dive head first and tend to become consumed it and photography was no different. My passion for taking photos became pretty apparent to all who knew me and soon I started getting asked to do engagements and then eventually my first wedding.
I love photographing weddings because I love taking photos that have meaning beyond just looking "cool". Documenting moments that will last a lifetime and that will bring joy to future generations of families inspires me everyday and with every shoot.
I wasn't one of those kids that grew up with a camera and absolutely knew I wanted to be a photographer when I grew up. There were always creative outlets that I enjoyed, whether it was drawing or playing guitar, but photography was something that came to me a bit later in life.
After going to college and getting an engineering degree at the University of Illinois down in Urbana-Champaign I settled into cubicle life as an engineer. As much as I loved engineering and the analytical, I missed having some form of creative outlet and started to pick up photography for fun. I was immediately hooked and never looked back.
