Where in the World?

I love these moments captured of Shannon and Tim because unless you know what you’re looking at, you may just be convinced that these photos were taken on a tropical island! Truth be told this lush landscape lies in Minneapolis, MN at Minnehaha Falls. Shannon, a native Minnesotan, and Tim, an Aussie, met abroad and have travelled the world together. With a wedding planned in Hawaii, they wanted their engagement pictures to match the excitement of their day, but still have elements of home.

Twin Cities Wedding & Event Networking

Highlights and “drama” from today’s TCWEP Networking Event at the Delta Hotels by Marriot, North East Minneapolis! Muddy Paws Cheesecake, delicious Pad Thai & Lo Mein, “Potty Banks” and more!

MORE PHOTOS TO COME SOON!

It was an intimate meeting for October - with delicious food, a beautiful venue, and close colleagues!

NE Minneapolis Adventure

I enjoyed catching the early Spring light (done entirely in camera) through the trees at St. Anthony Main and Stone Arch Bridge before following Becky & Greg home for a casual date night. Becky was able to borrow Keri Noble's velvet ribbon dress, beautifully crafted by local designer Tess Ross for the Go Red for Women fundraiser.

Later that night we went back to their loft to make pizza, drink wine, and cozy up on the couch!

P.S. This year I've shot more snowy engagement sessions than ever, and I LOVE it! I also love that Becky sought out designer Tess Ross to borrow this beautiful velvet ribbon dress (recently worn by Keri Noble at the 2018 Go Red For Women Fashion Show)! Of course, Greg borrowed a red velvet bow-tie from dad to match!

Playful Light Engagement Session

Teegan and Jenny incorporated a date into their engagement session, which included playing video games at home, visiting a local brewery, and strolling along the Stone Arch Bridge at  dusk. Despite the cold temperatures, this winter session leaves me feeling extra cozy.

The Art of Wedding Photography

Photographing at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis has been one of my goals since I began shooting 8+ years ago. A friend and fellow photographer, Heidi Garrido of HM Photography, recommended clients Kaitlin & Steve and it was a match made in modern art heaven! 

Thank you to Kaitlin & Steve for sharing their day, Evan Sowder my second photographer, Terri of Uy-Lennon Floral Design, The Walker Art Center, the Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens, Heidi M, Garrido, and Frazier Benya Cake Design.

Wild about Como

Monica and Eric's Summer wedding at St. Paul's Como Zoo and Conservatory have me wild about this venue. If you're looking for a bright, lush, off-beat wedding venue (with a real-life sloth mascot to boot), this venue is for you!

Special thanks to Monica & Eric, for being an amazing couple to work with, Como Zoo & Conservatory, Lancer Catering, Complete Weddings & Events, and the Commons Hotel Minneapolis.
