Hi! I’m Andrea and this is me + my babe. Lover of mashed potatoes, palm trees, Jack Black, true crime podcasts, and Starbucks DoubleShot. Hater of math problems, soggy french fries, decaf, and pants. I met a guy in a dive bar 9 years ago and he is now my husband. We have 3 little girls, Rosie, Sadie, and Carly + a big, fluffy golden retriever named Snarles Barkley. I quote too many movies and eat too many tacos.
I’m obsessed with travel and adventure, and have big plans to see the world. I’m based in the crazy flat plains of Illinois, but I’ll go anywhere you need me!
I’m what you’d call an unposed photographer. I dig candid, real moments. Big moments, small moments, and moments in between. Madly-in-love couples and PDA are my bread and butter. What’s a session without tickling until you can't breathe, booty grabs, and droppin’ it like it’s hot?! I'm so fortunate to be doing what I love with couples that love what I do. Let's grab a beer and do this thang. I’m a great third wheel – promise!

Oh my goodness if I could leave Andrea 10 stars I would. She was an actual dream to work with for our wedding. Not only are her photos breathtakingly gorgeous...but she made the entire process a breeze! She was so easy to communicate with, so much freaking fun and she made the entire thing so comfortable and easy. We certainly aren't used to getting our pictures taken (especially my hubby) and the whole posing thing can be awkward...not with Andrea! She was seriously such a blast and not one moment was weird or uncomfortable! Everything was so natural and we were laughing the entire time because of her. On top of all that she really helped us set the schedule of the entire day and stick to it! Not only do I want Andrea to shoot every event I ever have again but also want her to be my best friend :) They are INCREDIBLE and I could not be more obsessed. Do not hesitate for one second to book her...you won't regret it!!! One of the best decisions I made!

Best decision I made for my wedding was having Andrea there as our photographer. I have a million great things to say but I will limit it to my top 3 reasons as to why she is perfect. PICTURE COACHING - I am awkward at taking photos and my husband is 10x worse, but Andrea made it incredibly easy for us to feel comfortable. She knew exactly what to do with us which just made the day go flawlessly. PATIENT AND FUN - she knew she had a job to do but she was also patient with our group which I am sure got annoying at times. We had so much fun with her that at a point the bridal party wanted her to drop her camera and come hang out with us. AMAZINGLY TALENTED - and most importantly the pictures are beautiful. The emotions she was able to capture are so real. Everyone in my bridal party had so many great things to say about Andrea - I couldn't thank her enough for her hard work.
