Michael + Sammy78 Photos
I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Chicago, and someone who has a heart for travel, so no matter where you are I’d love to hear from you! I often travel for weddings in Tennessee, where I was born and raised, so don’t be surprised if you hear a slight accent when you talk to me for the first time! I have photographed events in Ireland, France, Florida, Tennessee, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin. I cannot wait to add more to that list!
My burning passion for photography and for documenting special moments for my clients is what makes me thrive! I love capturing those small, ever so fleeting moments for my couples to cherish for many years to come. My goal with every wedding is to photograph moments like those so that my couples as well as future generations can relive those memories and emotions. Being an energetic, dedicated, and creative photographer that looks at every detail to make sure you look your absolute best, I do everything in my power to keep you stress-free throughout the wedding day. My posing is comfortable, natural and romantic and my editing style is timeless. My love for photography began as a child, but really blossomed as I learned to scrapbook in middle school. Because of this, my love for albums and printing my images grew. I offer the most beautiful, high quality, heirloom albums and design them myself. They are classic, elegant, and will will stand the test of time.
I love to bring out the beauty in every person that I photograph and absolutely adore my couples. I truly want to get to know each of you like a friend, which is why I only accept a limited number of weddings per year. It would be an honor to be a part of your special day and to capture the memories and emotions that you will treasure for a lifetime. I can’t wait to hear more about your love story and your plans for your wedding day!
