Jess & Joe Engagement
Joe has been one of my best friends since we were kids. When Joe told me he was going to propose I knew I had to be there. We hiked to the Beach House Blowout at the Indiana Dunes in the dead of winter during a full moon to get these amazing shots. It was such a fun experience and it couldn't have turned out better.
Danielle & Jeremy Wedding
This was a unique wedding. I've known Danielle since high school. We both played trumpet in band at Merrillville High School. Danielle & Jeremy decided they weren't going to let the COVID-19 pandemic get in the way of their wedding day, so I actually live streamed their at-home ceremony for their friends and family and then we took some photos on their beautiful property in Merrillville.
Megan & Jordan Engagment
Megan is an old friend from high school. She was in the color guard and I played trumpet in marching band. We shot these photos at Lemon Lake county park, which is one of my favorite parks in northwest Indiana. It was a cold day, but these two pushed through and we made it work!
Fuentes Family Photos
I've known Gil and Martha just as long as I've known Gil's brother Art. We rode the bus together and skateboarded together in high school. Gil's family was growing and Martha asked me to take some maternity photos. I knew the beach would be the perfect spot to make some timeless memories.
Real Video Production Co BTS
Real Video Production Co asked me to shoot some behind the scenes video for a project they were working on with the new Cineshooter by Kessler Crane. They didn't even ask for photos, but I figured I should grab some while I was there. It was a really fun shoot and I love how the photos turned out.
Chuy Garcia Illinois US Representative
We were working with Exclusive PR on a political video for Perla Tirado, who was running for judge in Chicago. Illinois US Representative Chuy Garcia endorsed Perla Tirado for judge in the video we made. We took a few photos together to add to the campaign and remember the experience. Perla won the election. It was a really fun shoot and it was cool to work with such high value politicians.
Connected Paint Marketing Photos
My friend Arturo Fuentes worked for Connected Paint and they were looking for some marketing photos. We did a quick shoot for them to create these images. I love how the sun is shining through the window in the background. Arturo's dining room just happened to have the perfect light.
My friend Arturo Fuentes wanted some photos of him in the city for his Instagram. We took a trip up to Chicago to walk around and see what we could dream up. It was a very cold day, but we still had fun. I've known Art since 7th grade. We rode the same bus and still skateboard together to this day.
