Senior Associate AJ


After a completing her BFA in Photography at Columbia College, AJ found her way to Artisan Events. She's currently our Studio Manager by week and one of our most coveted Senior Associate Photographers by weekend! She's worked side-by-side with Principal Amanda Sudimack and the entire Artisan Events team for the past three years.

AJ is a natural — at just about everything. We're thrilled to have her awesome talent and fun-loving disposition here at the studio each and everyday.


A little more about me...

  • What's my style? Always candid; 100% journalistic. Absolutely fun.
  • Black & White or color? Both!
  • Number of weddings I've documented? 40+
I wanted to send you a quick note to acknowledge how much I enjoyed working with your team, especially AJ. They were all awesome in every sense of the word and really helped make our day as great as it possibly could have been. I am happy to act as a point for reference for anyone who would want a firsthand account of working with your team and will be directing everyone I know getting married in the Chicago area your way. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding.
— Ryan R. (Groom)
Artisan Events was absolutely amazing, particularly AJ... She was calm and collected the entire time. I prefer authentic, journalistic photography and got exactly that.

An amazing photographer during our day...AJ will also double as a therapist—and trust me you need someone who can help you relax that day! My loving groom forgot the rings and she helped me stay calm while the ceremony was delayed by 30 minutes. AJ was patient with my family and got great candid shots that captured the feel of the wedding.
