Hi, I'm Kina, nice to meet you!


I've been shooting weddings, events, portraits and lifestyle work in my hometown of Chicago for the past 12 years. I first picked up a camera in my mid 20's as an extension of a lifelong love of drawing and painting (and people watching) and I never looked back. I also love to travel and have shot in destinations around the US and overseas and am available for shoots worldwide. Making people feel beautiful and comfortable in their skin makes me happy. Partnering with you to capture your engagement and wedding, running around after your kids to create memories of their fleeting moments at a particular age, or helping you take your business to the next level with commercial projects and headshots brings me a lot of fulfillment, and is why I have kept a camera in my hand all these years. I enjoy shooting with medium format film and you'll see me at your shoot or wedding day with a variety of cameras both film and digital, creating something both unique and timeless for you to take with you to remember your most cherished moments. I also have a team of experienced associate shooters for when I'm not available that are true to the brand and style that we consistently deliver. Feel free to reach out at kinawicks@gmail.com so that I can learn a bit more about you. I look forward to connecting!
