I'm located in the Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago, IL. I do not charge a travel fee for events in the City of Chicago or suburbs. If your event is outside of this (downstate Illinois, or neighboring Michigan, Wisconsin or Indiana), it simply depends on your specific event plans and location. Having a destination wedding? Let's connect! I'm very open to traveling abroad!
Before moving into wedding and commercial photography, I was a full-time staff photojournalist at Pioneer Press Newspapers in Chicago (2000-2009). I started photographing weddings part-time in 2002, and then full-time in 2009. I generally photograph 20-30 per year, so at this point I've photographed over 200 weddings in total.
I blend modern documentary wedding photography, with creative and dynamic portraiture. Ultimately my goal for every couple I work with is to help them relive their wedding day through the images I create. I accomplish this by looking for sparks of emotion, defining moments, and documenting the day as it unfolds.
My wedding photography services start at $3500 and include:
- Lead photographer Jason Brown
- Lighting assistant
- Sharable online gallery
- Images in both color and black & white
- Edited, high-resolution images on a USB drive
I generally meet clients at one of the below locations. I'm absolutely willing to use Facetime / Skype for out of town couples.

My work has been recognized by the Wedding Photojournalist Association and Illinois Press Photographers Association.
I've also been featured in Modern Luxury Weddings and The Knot Chicago magazine.
Outside of wedding photography, I enjoy traveling, skiing, (pretty much anything relating to the mountains/outdoors), couch time with my puppy, bow ties, strumming my guitar (still learning), and spending time with friends around the fire pit.
