- About Victoria -


I'm Victoria, and I dislike 3rd person bio pages. I'm a Photographer and Filmmaker based in Chicago, traveling worldwide. I specialize in low light, high contrast, bold color, and in-camera effects. I love documenting real moments (at weddings, of live productions, or just in regular life), and I especially love taking creative portraits. I am a full time photographer, and have been involved with the art form professionally for over 20 years.
