you definitely get to meet your photographer before the wedding.





“I’m a man of few words until I begin talking.  I feel many, many things in life.  I am a biological blob of body and bone, full of passion and positivity.

I used to really love cats – I mean, I still do, but back in 2015 my wife and I had our first kid, and it totally blew my mind how much I fell in love with this little human we created together.  Unfortunately the cats don’t get as much attention any longer, but man do my kids love giving them a hard time 🙁  I now have 2 kiddos, Ella Rae and Easton Alexander.  And yes, I take WAY too many photographs of them, but mostly with my iPhone.

I’m absolutely 100% addicted to Orangetheory Fitness, and I’ve survived one Hell Week – are you confused?  Go and take one of their free classes…it’s simply the best.

I wake up each day and look forward to watering my garden in the backyard.
But I usually scamper towards the espresso machine first.
I adore my wife.
I love photographing life”.



“I love adventure. I love art. I love dinosaurs. I love dogs. I love my dog. I love craft beer. I love travel. I love love. Art pulses through the veins of my family tree and being creative has been a lifelong journey of mine. No matter what I’m doing or where I’m at, my passion to create and explore life through art is ever-present. Among other mediums, photography has always been an interest of mine and I’ve been behind the camera for all sorts of adventures, exploring art and life through nature, portraiture, and wildlife. I joined this team two years ago and have never looked back. Working with couples and discovering what makes them tick and learning about who they are is worlds of fun for me. Getting people to open up with their loved one in front of my camera and express their love for one another is such an inspiration to me and my artistic being.

I work very hard to maintain a balance between wedding photography and my own personal projects, as well as combining the two together. I am incredibly passionate about the preservation and rescue of our environment and the wildlife we share this planet with. I try to instill an appreciation for nature through my work. Understanding just how timeless photography is by capturing our ever-changing world, I also realize how that same timeless perspective is seen through one day of love between two people. Capturing a couples’ wedding day and giving them the opportunity to relive that day through photographic moments is an extraordinary experience. I am constantly humbled by the opportunities presented to me and I look forward to the next adventure – be it a wedding in the concrete jungle of Chicago, a safari in the great plains of Africa, or an expedition through the thick rainforest of the Amazon.

I’m here to learn, live, and tell a story. I’m looking forward to creating, documenting, and sharing yours.”



“I enjoy photography because I have a really curious mind. I’m the type of person that is always looking for something even though I don’t know what I’m looking for – it’s more about dreaming and discovering. I get a lot of my inspiration from my wife, kids and from some of the great photographers I’ve meet in life.”

The gentle and humble Misa: a man of few words, with a heart that speaks profoundly about the life he’s built around the things he loves. You really need to know only a few things about Misa: he has 3 loves in his life – his family, the craft and art of all things espresso/coffee related, and, of course, photography. Just a bit of fair warning – if he gets a hold of your mobile number, you WILL receive epic photographs of the most beautiful latte art ever.




I consider myself very lucky to have family by my side – my son is the most energetic man in Chicago, and my mom is one of the most supportive women.  I describe myself as an easy-going and determined person.  I want to bring that sense of calm and determination to your wedding day.

I get to do something I love everyday, which is creating something everlasting. I get to be a part of and capture memories of the happiest day of people’s lives. Even though I am behind the camera, I get to build a special relationship with each couple on their wedding day.

So honestly, I always ask myself “Am I living my own dream or what?!”

One of my favorite quotes is all about the feeling of photography, which I absolutely believe in:    “Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.”— Peter Adams



Audrey:  pro maestro of all things crafty, of the world and the universe.  She loves astrology, yoga, and photography.  Calm, quiet, and intent on finding the inner beauty of her surroundings, Audrey joined the team with a drive to better understand how to get to the heart of telling a story with photographs.  But maybe it’s best just to hear her own words:

I have a passion for finding the beauty in life, and a desire to learn, grow, and understand others. I want to know what makes you tick. The world is my playground and I am endlessly curious. I wake up every day to meditate on what I’m grateful for and try to practice unconditional love in every moment.

I’ve always been a creative, but I found my voice through photography in 2008. I love telling stories and evoking feelings through my images. My favorite thing to capture is people because I see so much beauty in everyone and I want others to see in themselves what I can see. 

Outside of photography you can normally find me being active either at the gym or through dance, yoga & acroyoga. Maybe one day you’ll see me in Cirque du Solei.”



Leah is amazing not only because she deals with an entire team of dudes here at This Is Feeling, but she’s actually a very talented photographer and a great human being, which is why she made the cut. She also hates writing bios or talking about herself, so the first thing she did was insist on US writing this for her. Okay, fine.

She’s a fiery depth of both curiosity and exploration, although a bit timid during most introductions. She uses that balance of energy and relation to evolve strong and genuine relationships with her clients. Her love for life exists outside of photographing weddings, too – her talents and unique eye can also be seen in her powerful portraiture of animals (if you do get the opportunity to meet Leah, just ask her about horses or her 2 dogs, which she adores…) – a subject that has become one of her many personal projects.

Leah’s curated eye and positive attitude make a perfect fit here on the This Is Feeling team.



“Honestly, I can’t even remember the last 6 years of my life. I came to the USA from the Czech Republic to study here. While dealing with culture shock, I started photographing the city and the people in it. During my sophomore year, I met the weirdest and the most sarcastic woman in the whole world. I immediately fell in love with her and married her 6 months later. She became my main subject of photos and…she wasn’t a huge fan of it. Not too long afterward, we had our daughter Kyrie who totally trumped my wife at being the weirdest woman in the world annndd also took her spot in photos (luckily for my wife :)). And she LOVES it! 😀

During this whole process, I was getting more and more involved in taking pictures of people and their relationships, and since finishing college I have been shooting weddings full time (plus being a full-time dad of course). I completely fell in love with photographing people and one of the jubilant, crazy, and emotional days of their lives. I am extremely thankful that I can have this job where I get to celebrate every weekend! And I DO celebrate with you, just wait till you see 🙂
