Wedding Photography

Your wedding, like your relationship, is one of a kind.

The looks you give each other that say “I love you”, the way you hold each other when you dance, the way you were really trying not to cry for joy but did.  These are the things life is made of.  They are moments that can’t be duplicated, and deserve to be remembered.

Your wedding photography is about both of you, getting married surrounded by the people you love and having your best day ever.

Love is a journey, and when you get into the details, no two journeys are the same.   It’s a fantastic experience to attend and photograph so many different types of weddings each year, because I fully embrace the diversity of marriage.

When I document your wedding, I want to capture the meaningful experiences you share together, the beautiful personal details you took the time and effort to include, and the things about your relationship that make it special.

So You Just Got Engaged, now what?

Let’s plan an engagement session to celebrate.

Your engagement portraits are like a date. You get to take a time out from wedding planning and focus on how you fell in love.

During your engagement session you’ll have fun while learning how I work as a photographer.   I’ll have fun getting to know you as a couple.  It’s a win-win!

Making New Friends is fun

Maybe you like sushi and I like tacos, but we can both agree that you deserve wedding pictures you’ll cherish as much as your marriage.

If you like what you see in my portfolio we should talk. Head on over to my contact page and send me a message so we can schedule a time to chat.

More Info

Yes!    Travel within 65 miles of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area is included with every wedding.   I’m happy to take a trip to the North Shore, jump across the border to a neighboring state, or come along on your adventure anywhere in the United States.   If you need me to travel farther we will make a plan together that works with your wedding schedule.

Send me a message or give me a call so we can talk about your wedding.  When you are ready to book I’ll have you fill out my client information and create a wedding agreement for you to sign.

As soon as you know you are ready!  Most of my couples contact me 6-18 months before their wedding. If your wedding is taking place sooner and I’m available I will gladly book you.

I have been a full time photographer with my own business owner since mid 2012.  My very first photography job was at a commercial family portrait studio in 2001.  In between these things I did portraits on my own as I held various other jobs, went to college for visual communications, and assisted other photographers.   I have been a working photographer for over a decade.

Yes.  I provide a mix of color and black and white images.  I also use artistic enhancements and natural skin softening when needed.

I leave that decision up to you because it’s a very personal one.

I can guide you on how having a first look will determine your photography timeline for the day.  I want you to make the decision on a first look that feels right for you.  I am able to create a photography plan with or without a first look.

I take last minute bookings if I have your wedding weekend open.  Please contact me asap if you’re in this situation.
