Photographer + FILMMAKER
About Brian . . .
Brian has been capturing weddings, events, couples, and families with fig since 2006. His weddings have been featured in Chicago Sun-Times Splash Magazine, Modern Luxury Brides Magazine, and Be U Weddings Blog. Brian candidly and creatively captures the moments, the emotions, and the many little events that make up your wedding day. Then when necessary, he directs the couple and groups to look their best selves. This combination of the two approaches results in “candidly beautiful” photographs. Brian is very familiar with the many wedding venues in the city of Chicago and it’s suburbs. He is also available to travel wide and far, as he recently demonstrated with destination weddings in Mexico, Colorado, and Charleston.
“My wedding photography is a reflection of the couple’s relationship with each other, and their guests. I ask myself – what emotions, what moments, would I want to have captured at my own wedding (all of them). I like to get as close as I can to all the wedding-day action. I look for unique lighting, go for creative angles, and time my shots carefully so you look your best. I am always looking to advance my style of photography, by capturing images that I will be proud to add to my portfolio of work.”

"Brian was a great photographer throughout our wedding planning and wedding day. Not only did he offer creative ideas and recommendations, he also was able to coordinate the wedding day successfully with very tight time windows, even directing other vendors when needed. We would definitely recommend fig's services to anyone getting married!" – Meghan + Marshall
"So happy we chose FIG for our wedding photos and are very pleased with how everything turned out. ALL the pictures look fantastic, and Brian was very accommodating to our needs of not only the day, but the entire process as well. With both his professional and creative background, we trusted his ideas & suggestions on when, where, and how the day should look through his lens... and we're glad we did. We highly recommend you do the same in capturing the best day of your life." – Meg + Mike
"Brian was a photographer and was amazing! He was in closets, on chairs, in the middle of traffic all to get the best shots! We can't wait to see his work and know we will have beautiful pictures to remember our wedding day." – Annie M.
