I am a Wedding & Portrait photographer based out of Chicago, IL. After spending some time on my site I hope you'll be able to get a feel for my style and for the great time you'll have at one of your sessions! I love to capture life in its real moments, in scenery that is beautiful but simple. I shoot on location and I search for the best natural light possible to make your photos amazing! If I sound like the right photographer to capture whatever stage of life you are in at the moment, let’s chat. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about you and your special occasion!

Winterlyn did our engagement shoot and our wedding pictures. OMG!!! I can't imagine going with anyone else for such a big and important day. Winterlyn was not just professional, she was absolutely fun and sweet and pays attention to such details I never would have imagined. I couldn't be happier with my photos!! She kept her composure through the whole wedding and made the whole thing flawless. I loved loved loved working with such a wonderful person who clearly shows her passion for photography. We got our pictures back so quickly too! Which I'm happy about because I was so eager to see them! I highly recommend working with her for any of your photo needs. Trust her instinct and enjoy every moment with her. Thank you Winterlyn for being amazing!!!!

Winterlyn was so amazing to work with, from my first email through getting our finished photos! She shot beautiful photos before, during, and after my elopement. She offered great advice for photo locations, had experience with elopements and was able to recommend and capture some great photos of the whole experience. Best of all, she made my now husband and I feel so at ease the entire time! I cannot recommend her enough and am so glad that we chose her to capture our special day and share those moments with us.

Winterlyn was so amazing and my wife and I feel so fortunate to have had her! We live a few hours away from Winterlyn and from where we got married, so our first interaction was a phone interview. She came very prepared and answered any question we had. At the end of our talk we felt like she’d be a great fit and all of our concerns had faded away! Neither my wife nor I are the most decisive and Winterlyn went above and beyond to help us pick engagement shoot locations, capturing the exact feel and vibe we were after! Not only did she do a perfect job with the logistics, but for someone who we had met the first time on the day of our engagement shoot, it wasn’t awkward or uncomfortable at all! She is so warm and welcoming. Once the wedding came she continued to exceed our expectations! She was on top of it all and captured every moment and detail. We are head over heels in love with her work and all of the memories we’re left with thanks to her!

I'm so glad we went with Winterlyn. She kept us up to date with everything. She suggested we do a first look. At first my fiance was against it but we're so glad we did it. Our wedding ran late and we didn't have any sunlight to capture moments after our ceremony (like she warned us). She captured so many great moments and details. Every-time someone sees our photos, they always think they're magazine ads. We are so thankful for Winterlyn's humbleness, punctuality (although I wasn't) but most of all her professionalism.
