Hello, I'm Kyle
Hey there and welcome to my corner of the internet, I am incredible humbled that you made it here. My name is Kyle and I am wedding photographer based in Chicago with a constant itch for travel, finding new restaurants, and bourbon cocktails.
I believe that every wedding tells such a unique story and I would love nothing more than to see you both celebrating with yourselves, surrounded by your loved ones. Close your eyes. I want you to picture your wedding dress blowing in the wind while your love is reading their vows, tears rolling down their cheek. This is why I am here. To document all the moments that make you laugh, smile, and cry throughout your wedding, not only for you, but for future generations as well.
I would love to hear more about your story and the wedding that you’re planning. When you’re ready, head over to my contact page and say hello.
WHAT ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW
My wife Lindsay, our pup [Koji], and I call the Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago home and we wouldn’t have it any other way. They are my biggest fans and support system. Lindsay and I are high school sweethearts and have known each other longer than we haven’t.
Growing up, I surrounded myself with books and movies, developing my love for storytelling and understanding what makes for a good story. My grandmother always said that as soon as I came home from school, I would go into great details, almost minute by minute, how my day went. Funnily enough, my wife says nothing has changed since then with my stories.
This love and appreciation for storytelling bleeds into my photography. I don’t want to just document the big moments throughout your wedding day. I want to document all the moments from the laughter and joyful moments as you’re getting ready to the comforting touches as you see each other for the first time. I want to tell your wedding day story with as much detail as I described my school days to my grandmother.
When I'm Not Behind the Camera
When I’m not behind the camera, you can likely find me planning our next food crawl or trip to the next National Park. While we love living in the city, we love unwinding and escaping the hustle and bustle by being outdoors in nature. For our honeymoon, we spent two weeks exploring all the National Parks in Utah and it was incredible to disconnect from the world and enjoy the peace and quiet. To quote my favorite movie: “Adventure is out there!” (If you know where this is from, we can definitely be best friends).
Before becoming a wedding photographer, I worked as a data analyst and majored in Statistics.
While I do enjoy drinking lattes, the coffee and caffeine aren’t what I’m after. I just really enjoy coffee flavored milk.
Since the pandemic started, I stumbled into the world of sneakers and have grown to appreciate pairs that have great backstories and history behind collaborations.
I have a soft spot for doughnuts, always on the hunt for the best ones!
