Serving NW Indiana & greater Chicago area | located in Crown Point, IN.


I started Tales of a Dream | T.O.A.D. to show the amazing talent we have in NW Indiana. Collaborating with other artists, such as photographers, hair stylists, make-up artists, florists, and other small businesses is very uplifting and empowering.

Designing and creating a photo shoot around an idea is challenging but so much fun. It’s important to me and other artists to show our potential. Tales of a Dream gives this a platform and I personally love scrolling through the galleries to see all the cool stuff we’ve done so far.

My friend Jamie | Jamie Skripac Photography has been my partner in crime and we’ve enjoyed collaborating on many projects and love shooting weddings together. Over the past few years we’ve been expanding our trusted circle. Since we both run very successful photography businesses we won’t be able to do everything together moving forward.

In the future I have many ideas I want to bring to life and I am excited to collaborate with other talented people.

Let’s create something magical together!

Weddings are always better with 2 photographers. If you are lucky Jamie and I will both be available for your desired date. But as we’ve been getting busier and busier in our professional and personal lives, that might not always be the case.

Don’t wait to contact us as soon as you know your wedding date! Should both of us not be available you can always book either of us and we can add a second shooter!

We can’t wait to hear about your wedding plans!

Carmen & Jamie
