Hi! I’m Tennile (Tuh-neel OR Ten-eel OR Tin-eel),  Tennile Sunday

I live in Chicago, and I love it here. I’m originally from Toronto, Canada and, depending on who you ask, I may or may not have a charming pronunciation of the word “about.”

Before I took up photography professionally, I worked in book publishing, and as a writer and editor. I crave creativity, and story telling — the medium isn’t necessarily the most important detail.

I’m great at reading people, and situations; I like to understand the intricacies of relationships, and to convey the subtleties and uniqueness of the people that I photograph.

I am based in Chicago, and available for weddings and photography projects in the US, Canada, or anywhere your heart desires.
