Chicago and Destination Wedding Photographer

About This Photo

 

If you have made it this far you know I love to travel! This was taken last year on a trip to Paris with my boyfriend.  We were both sick as dogs but took on a day in Paris anyway! The first thing we did was head to the views top of Arc de Triomphe.  Long lines and so many stairs later (seriously SO MANY STAIRS), we were there, looking over the beautiful city of Paris, in the fall, on the perfect day. I handed my boyfriend the camera and posed as the epic adventurer I strive to be!  With the sun out, wind in my hair and the Eiffel tower behind me, it was the perfect first official day in Paris, even if we were both kinda dying and immediately after this photo headed back to the hotel for a nap.

Hey It’s Hanna!

Hiiiii!  First off, nobody says my last name right, so don’t you worry.  Call me whatever you think it says (or just call me Hanna), I will also reply to Walka Floca (its kinda similar right?!) and Ham (literally can’t explain that one, but it has been my nickname since I was 10!).

I absolutely love polaroids, riding my bike with no hands, ordering too much Thai on Uber Eats, and every single one of my 25+ plant babies.  I can fall asleep in any kind of moving vehicle (one of my hidden talents). I collect silver rings and stuff as many on my fingers as possible everyday.

As a kid I was into horseback riding, gymnastics, theater, and of course photography.  Basically ALL the things. I never sat still and would rather cartwheel than walk on two feet.  To this day, although I can’t do cartwheels down the street anymore, I hate sitting still and strive to fill my life up to the brim with everything I love!  

Growing up with a darkroom in my house, I knew I wanted to be a photographer from a younger age than most.  Right at 18 I headed to Chicago where I got my Bachelors degree in photography at Columbia College Chicago. Only a few months into Columbia I shot my first wedding and here we are today!  Still documenting all the different kinds of love in this world and having a blast! I absolutely love getting to know my couples, their friends and family, and am honored to forever record the love between them.  I’m here to capture both the craziness and the quiet that come with being in love, planning a wedding, and just living your life together. I want to photograph the joy of everyone there to celebrate your day and all the little details that make it your own personal story.  

 

 


Let’s Talk for Real

I treat my wedding clients as friends, so grabbing brunch and DMing about the new shoes you just bought can totally happen.  Hiring a wedding photographer is such a crazy experience, so let me answer all your questions! I want you to know I’ve got your back!  My relationship with you isn’t just a “business lady there to shoot your wedding and get her check”, but to invest emotionally and creatively in your wedding day and love story and the quirks that make you fall in love with each other everyday! I’m going to laugh out loud at the jokes in the ceremony and hide the tears behind my camera when your maid of honor and dad gives their speeches (I always swore I wasn’t a sap until weddings).   I will 100% make you get on the dance floor and groove with your love, your mom, and all your friends before I leave, because those photos are magic.  I’m your eyes, your ears and your shoulder to lean on when you need it, all so you can just keep on enjoying yourself.
