Rick Jennisch Photography, Associate Photographer Dee Schroeder
My story: I started out as an assistant to Rick Jennisch at weddings 4 years ago and have progressed to being associate photographer for over half of the weddings he photographs each year. Now I also photograph maternity, newborns and babies for Rick. And I love it! I have to say that I've been really fortunate to learn from one of the best.
My photography passions: I love the excitement of a wedding day, and the chance to help capture memories. Seeing how one of my images conveys the feeling of the moment is something I enjoy.
I really love babies so combining that with my photography has been like a dream come true. It is such an honor to be chosen to photograph a couple's newborn baby knowing they trust me enough to take photos at this incredible moment in their lives. Then taking those same babies' milestone photos is so much fun...to watch how they change and grow into little people with personalities.
Why I love Photography: It's my chance to feed my creative side. And I get to be part of two of the most important events in people's lives: weddings and babies....how fun is that?!
More about Dee: Besides photography, I enjoy: traveling to new places or old (I love weekends in Chicago!), Cubs games, spending time with my guy and our kids, families, and friends, zumba, decorating, gardening, creating a little art, dogs, a great book or movie, enjoying nature and the beauty of our world, music, and just enjoying life!
