"Ernst was a bride's dream. He was superb! Friendly, accommodating, trustworthy and so professional. I think when we first spoke I told you that the work of yours I had seen is stunning. I can now vouch that the stunning part starts with the photographer from within and is simply projected through the lens." Jennifer Shadur

Creative Storytelling



.An Eye for Detail, a Heart for Storytelling


I am a Bloomington, Illinois-based wedding photographer, dedicated to capturing one-of-a-kind wedding day stories.

I’ll predominantly assume the role of an observer throughout most of the day, capturing the subtle moments between you and your fiancé, as well as those shared with your family and friends. During a small portion of the day, I’ll take a more hands-on approach, arranging formal poses with family members and setting the scene when photographing the two of you.
