Introduction: My strength is on-location photography, including outdoor portrait shoots making use of natural light as well as high quality, portrait-style lighting when needed -- a must in the COVID-19 era we live in! Additionally, I have ample experience photographing interior design/real estate, live music and events, and even sports and fast-paced action (check out my recent projects for some examples!) -- and whatever the scenario, I bring the know-how and equipment to get the job done promptly and professionally. I also offer a 10% discount to non-profit organizations as well as veterans and active service personnel (e.g. armed forces, police, fire/rescue).

Engagement Photography

Josh did an amazing job capturing the proposal and our engagement. He was very down to earth and extremely easy to deal with. He kept in touch every bit of the way and was very professional. Not only did he do what we asked for, he went above and beyond what we expected. We will definitely be using him for future photos. Would highly recommend!

Josh was our wedding photographer for our ceremony and reception in late July 2021. Working with him was wonderful. We had an engagement shoot a few months prior to the wedding and it was great to meet him and get a feel for his style ahead of the wedding day. He was incredibly responsive and really worked with us to make sure we were comfortable and he was great at directing us and making suggestions. The photos exceeded our expectations. Leading up to the wedding, he made it easy to plan our most important groupings and he was always incredibly responsive. Of course, our scheduling got a little off track on the wedding day but he was super calm and accommodating and still made sure we got in all of our important photos. He worked really well with our videographer and our friends and family. Somehow he seemed to be in a million places at once shooting the ceremony and reception. He captured all of the important moments and many of the moments we missed as the day moves so quickly. We will treasure our wedding photos forever, they are more beautiful than we could have ever imagined and he turned around the album so quickly. We highly recommend hiring Josh for your wedding or other events!

Joshua is an amazing photographer! We scheduled a couples photoshoot with him and we cannot be happier with the photos he took! He not only made us feel super comfortable during the photoshoot he also made it really fun! He was professional, friendly, and super responsive. He answered any questions we had and gave us great location suggestions for the shoot. I would definitely recommend his services and will book him again for future shoots!

It was such a pleasure to work with Josh on our wedding day. My husband hates getting photos taken and Josh really put him at ease. He also sent me a couple of photos within 24 hours so I could show family and friends!!!!! Very professional and does great work.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I price most events and other shoots hourly, and pro-rate the hourly fee after the first hour. I do offer a 10% discount for current and former military, police, and fire personnel as well as non-profit organizations (just be sure to mention you're one of the above when booking!).

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    This depends partly on the type of shoot in question, but I always like to have at least a phone conversation discussing a client's priorities and must-haves, the logistics of their shoot; for longer or more intimate shoots (like weddings) a more in-depth look at day-of scheduling is needed, and (if possible) I include a brief couples shoot prior to the big day to get a sense for personalities, styles, and photographic preferences.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    I recently photographed a wedding at Cheney Mansion in Oak Park, IL that really stood out! Because we were able to schedule a couple's shoot in the city about a month ahead of the wedding, I was able to meet the bride and groom to be, really get to know them, and then get a sense of their style and aesthetic preferences prior to their big day, which really came through in the wedding photos thereafter. As it often goes with weddings, things didn't line up perfectly with the schedule day-of, but the level of comfort and confidence we shared meant it was easy to be flexible and still make sure I captured everything that was important to the couple -- and that's what really matters!
