6 Time Winner of Madison Magazine’s Best Photographer
Weddings are fun. Ho-lee shit are they fun, but let’s be honest, they would be NOTHING without the people. Sure, it’s great to get the right venue, tablecloths, and food, but at the end of the day, your wedding isn’t about that. Your wedding is about you. Your partner. Your relationship. Your families. Your friends. The little kids that act like drunk adults. As a Madison documentary photographer, I get to focus on what matters.
The reason I love photography as much as I do is because of the people I get to work with. I’m fascinated by the connections you share and the web of love that surrounds you.
Yes, you’ll get a lot of pretty images from your wedding day, but I’ll also give you photographs that that tug at your mother f%#king* heart strings years from now 🙂
*I will not swear in church, in front of your parents (unless specifically asked to do so), or around children. I will swear excitedly in front of you.
Some more tid bits:
My parents named me ilana which sounds a whole lot like ee-LAHN-ah.
I’m a Madison based wedding photographer, but I love traveling (everyone does, right?) and travel is included for any wedding based in the lower 48. If you’re in Hawai’i, Alaska, or elsewhere, we can work something out.
My dad was a photographer and my oldest brother is a photographer based out of Baltimore. They both tried to talk me out of shooting weddings because they thought it would be too stressful…
…They were wrong. This is my 7th full-time year as a wedding photographer specializing in photojournalism and I have the best job I could ask for. I love it. That’s something I’ll never take for granted.
It is my goal to give you photos that bring joy to you and the people who mean the world to you.
