Wedding Photography

Authentic, real life moments tell your personal wedding story.

Your wedding is about both of you, getting married. You’ll be surrounded by the people who are important to you.  You want to be having one of your best days ever.

   Your photography will tell the story of  this part of your life’s journey together, long after your wedding is over.

The experiences you share together on the wedding day, the beautiful details you took the time and effort to include, all the things about your relationship that make it special.  These things will be preserved in your photography so you can have a visual reminder to hold close and live on after your day is done.

It’s an honor for me to be able to provide this service of documenting your life and capturing your memories for you.

 

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.

Congratulations On Your Engagement

Engagements portraits are free when you reserve your wedding.

Your engagement pictures are like a date.  They should be fun, and make you both feel awesome.   You’ll have a chance to visit a favorite spot, or try some place new.  You’ll get a little time out from wedding planning to focus on remembering when and how you fell in love.

The bottom line:  You deserve photography you’ll cherish as much as your marriage, and I’d like to help you with that.

More Info

Send me a message or call 612-965-1591 for your wedding consultation.

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.

The retainer to hold your date is 20% of your total wedding package.

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.

I have been a full time photographer and 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.
