ALL ABOUT winterlyn

We believe in creating images that remind you of the best moments in life. 

Our Vision

My photography style blends timeless wedding portraits and touching candid moments. I’ll capture your day organically, as it unfolds. Your wedding photography will be a true representation of the beauty and emotion of the day.

When you hire me, I’m not just your photographer. I’m there as your friend, too. Fixing dresses and veils, supplying tissues, and cheering you on is all part of the meaningful work I do. I can’t wait to hear your story.

I’m a hopeless romantic, Chicago native, and professional wedding & engagement photographer.

About winterlyn

Photography has been a big part of my life for almost as long as I can remember. There was never any doubt in my mind about what I wanted to do.

Over the years the camera become more of a continuation of my hand, than a tool. I had the privilege and pleasure to photograph hundreds of couples and collaborate with numerous artists and magazines, and I can't wait to work with you too.

Through the

Seeing your wedding photos is such a joy, even years after you’ve tied the knot. You worked so hard to get to your wedding day and create the life you’re currently living. I see wedding photos as a celebration of where you’ve been and where your life is going. 

I strive to create an experience that not only delivers swoon worthy images, but also gives us both a friend! Long gone are the days where a stranger shows up to your suite on your wedding day and stands in the corner awkwardly snapping photos! When I walk in, it is a reunion with hugs, most of the time tears, and the start of moments rooted in making sure that you are present for your once-in-a-lifetime wedding day! ⁠
