THE FUN-LOVING, WORLD-TRAVELING,
TRUFFLE-FRY-OBSESSED CHICAGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

 

I fell in love with the city years ago after strolling the streets of Lincoln Park, seeing the several shades of blue reflecting off of the lake, and being overwhelmed with every cuisine option available. I never thought in a million years I'd get the honor and joy to meet and document couples starting their forevers here! 

Whether you're a north sider (like me!) hanging out in Wrigleyville, strutting around Lincoln Park enjoying the charm, or walking the 606, I'm already in love with your love story and I can't wait to capture it.

Jayde is one of the best decisions you will make on your wedding day.

"Jayde is exceptional at her job. First off she’s the kindest, most optimistic and outgoing photographer you could have. She made my husband and I both feel so comfortable and calm on our wedding day. She helped make our timeline and assured me throughout the day. She even helped my mom and I get ready with the tiny buttons on my dress. She listened to my every want, need and desire and made it happen, and captured every detail and moment from beginning to the end. Jayde loves what she does and it shows."

Her kindness, professionalism, fun personality and unwavering patience made the entire experience truly unforgettable.

I can’t express enough gratitude for Jayde’s exceptional photography on our wedding day. Not only did she capture breathtaking moments, but her calming demeanor set the perfect tone for the entire wedding party. Jayde went above and beyond, making our day run seamlessly. She is extremely easy to talk to and makes the planning process actually feel fun! The positive feedback from family, friends, and even co-workers on our photos from our engagement session and wedding day speaks volumes about the incredible job she did. If you’re looking for a photographer who not only excels in their craft but also contributes to a stress-free and joyous atmosphere, Jayde is the one."

So how does this work?

I’ve got a feeling you don’t want your wedding day to turn into one big photo shoot. But that doesn’t mean you want to pass up a gallery overflowing with breathtakers, showstoppers, and jawdroppers! By exploring new ideas, focusing on what you find most important, and prepping to perfection, you’ll get all the images you love without feeling overwhelmed or skipping your cocktail hour! Even if you think you’re not super photogenic, we’ll all be calling BS on that by the end of the day!
