Shannon photographed our wedding. She remained professional despite several obstacles including over-enthusiastic amateur photographers! Our photos turned out amazing. Several guests commented on her style during the photos as well as the final product including the book we opted for. I would definitely use her services again and would highly recommend her for any photo shoot.

Hi, my name is Mike, and I have been a photographer for over 30 years 12 of those as a professional. I am available for on-location shoots in the Chicago metro area, including the counties of Cook, Du Page, Will, Kane, and Kendall. I enjoy shooting all types of subjects, including, but are not limited to architecture, bands, belly dancers, bikini models, cars, food, fashion models, lingerie, nature, portraits, weddings, and informal gatherings, and much more. I love being behind the lens and find it to be one of the most interesting and thought-provoking art forms there is. My clients have had nothing, but great things to say about me and my photography. I don't have fancy backdrops and lighting packages; I love to shoot with natural light and available light. I also love to assist up-and-coming models with their portfolios. I have won three awards in 2004, 2005, and 2006 for "Outstanding Achievement in Amateur Photography" from the International Society of Photography. I also had a picture shown on a local TV station and have had several of my pictures published in my local newspaper. I am a highly motivated and hardworking photographer, and I am always learning more of the art from being in the field, the internet, books, magazines, and fellow photographers. I love to make my customers happy. My shoots are always fun and productive. Shooting in digital format gives myself and my client the instant feedback on that shot that makes both of us say "wow". So, if you're looking for a photographer who is friendly, focused, and always open to share your ideas, please contact me for further details.
