ABOUT

PINIMAGEHey friend! I’m so happy you’re here! I’m Brooke – a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Chicago. I’m from Central Illinois so I’m often traveling back and forth for photo sessions. As a lover of the world, my bags are always packed for anyone who wants to take me away to their destination wedding or elopement!

I’m inspired by the little things – the details that make all the difference. Whether it’s a coffee shop engagement session where the couple met, or the groom surprising the bride with a hand built wedding arbor at their first look – your photos should speak about who you are as a couple and how your story began. My art is about capturing the beauty of these moments and the authentic, real emotion. I strive to bring a carefree energy to the images I create because I feel the best photographs are the ones that appear effortless.

I know you have unlimited options when it comes to choosing a photographer, and making the right choice is so important. I don’t want to be just another check off your wedding vendor list – I aim to be a trusted resource and friend. I would love the chance to chat with you, learn about your vision for your day, and see if we’re a good fit!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Because I will ask 1,000 questions about you, it’s only fair you know a few things about me!

  • I married my amazing husband Shane in 2016 – and our life together is my favorite adventure
  • I am completely IN LOVE with our dog Indy! We rescued him in July 2017 and he has stolen our hearts. Our two cats wish we would take him back!
  • I’m a planner – in work and life. I am always making lists on paper, my phone, and in my head. I’m always the first one to volunteer to plan a party, event, or trip!
  • I spend a lot of time daydreaming of traveling with my husband. We’ve only checked a few places off of our “Must See” list. We just recently celebrated his 30th birthday in Venice!
  • I could eat popcorn every. single. day.
  • My husband was born and raised in the Bahamas and we often visit his parents at his childhood home. We even brought Indy last year!
  • I’m a crafting/DIY queen
  • I’m an amateur (but enthusiastic) home decorator!
  • I love the art of handwriting and am currently learning calligraphy
