real connections with the people I photograph

About Tim

When I began to capture important moments for couples, I realized that photography is more than just snapshots with fancy equipment—it’s about creating a space where people can truly be themselves. I discovered that stunning images come naturally when there’s a solid connection between us.

Photography isn’t just a profession for me; it’s my passion. There’s something profoundly rewarding about capturing raw emotions and genuine moments. No matter who you are, I want to ensure you not only look your best but also feel completely at ease in front of the lens. Because everyone deserves to feel like a superstar in their photos. 

I call Chicago’s vibrant Logan Square neighborhood home, where I live with my wife and our little dog. When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me exercising, exploring new destinations, or dancing like no one is watching at the shows of my favorite band, Phish.

"Tim was very professional, kind, and great at making us feel comfortable. The style demonstrated in his portfolio carried through in the photos that he took for us exactly the way we wanted. Great at working with the location and light environment we were given at the time of the shoot. We had a great time and would definitely work with him again!"

-Elise & Eddie

"Tim was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding. From the outset, I let Tim know that my husband and I are introverted people who are don't feel super comfortable in the spotlight. Tim not only made us feel comfortable, he actually made the photography experience enjoyable for us. He is laidback, organized, and clearly passionate about photography. "

-Lisa & Pat

"Tim is hands down a phenomenal photographer! He is professional, knowledgeable, kind, and passionate about his work. Most importantly, he made both myself and husband feel comfortable in front of the camera."

"Tim was absolutely exceptional! He takes some of the best pictures you will ever see! But there are a lot of people that can “take good pictures.” What separates Tim is his incredible professionalism and his obvious passion for what he does."
