Jessica is a funny and energetic Senior from Florida, and was brave enough to endure a very chilly Chicago afternoon during our portrait session. Sorry, Jessica… EVERYONE wants their photo next to Chicago’s Bean! Jessica’s father, Michael, earned major points by helping his daughter in the snow! :-) It really was that cold! Thank you,…
Wedding and family photojournalism is a natural extension of what I've done for one of the top newspapers in the country.
I blend. Document. Search for moments. Every day.
I've worked as a photojournalist for 15 years, including ten years for the Chicago Tribune. Unlike traditional studio photographers, I search for and capture moments that go beyond the posed portrait to show not only how you look, but what you feel.
I am a graduate of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill where I won NCPPA's College Photographer of the Year. I am a member of the Chicago Tribune team that won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize and my photographs have been published in national publications including the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Washington Post and Newsweek.
I've taught Photojournalism at Northwestern University since 2002, something I'm incredibly passionate about. I apply my background as a photojournalist to every photo session and moment-driven photography is what I strive for each time I pick up the camera.
Your wedding, special occasion, family or corporate event deserve to be documented through the lens of a trained and experienced photojournalist who truly loves documenting life.
Your life is full of moments. It's my job to document them.
