Aster Cafe Wedding // Guthrie Theater Wedding // Tessa & Jon

Guthrie Theater Wedding // Aster Cafe Wedding

Tessa & Jon’s intimate summery wedding was set just on the summer solstice, one of the most beautiful days of the year.  Adorned with chic & simple details, and set in some fabulous Minneapolis wedding locations, this wedding couldn’t have been more memorable.  The day began at the Aloft Hotel in Minneapolis.  Guests later reconvened for a Guthrie Theater wedding ceremony and Aster Cafe wedding reception. Every wedding has it’s own playful vibe & chemistry.  Capturing the feeling of the day is one of the things I am for.  That mix of beauty, playfulness & unexpected moments give rise to a collection of photos like this one.  That combination of formal portraits and editorial details mix well with those candid moments you find when the parents are giving their toasts.  All in all, these images should tell a story – one that is as beautiful as the day felt.

Machine Shop Wedding // Vince & Lindsay

Shooting at a new venue is always exciting for me.  I love exploring a new site, seeing the architecture & observing how the light hits the venue.  There are a ton of Minneapolis wedding venues and I’m happy to say I’ve shot at many of them.  However, Vince & Lindsay’s Machine Shop wedding was a first for me.   I loved the mix of elegant and industrial aspects at Machine Shop.  The tall velvet drapes in one area gave a very rich and moody mystique to some of the photos.  Also, I love shooting with window light.  Those types of photos tend to be amongst my favorites.  One of the benefits of having a space like this for photos is that we don’t have to go walking around in the mid-day heat to get some nice portraits.  The Machine Shop space featured quite a few portrait opportunity backdrops and I was happy to make the most of them.

Minneapolis Family Photographer // Family Session // Paola & Scott

Minneapolis Family Photographer // In-Home Family Session

Shooting a family session at Paola & Scott’s home really took me back to the magical aspects of being a kid.  I really wanted this shoot to be from their son’s perspective – showing the excitement & joy of a Saturday morning & afternoon when you’re a kid.  There are so many advantages of shooting an in-home family session.  It’s an environment that is meaningful to you and reflects you as a family.  There’s also a lifestyle vibe that comes off in the photos.  I wanted them to be candid, natural and in the moment.  Setting the scene and creating vignettes like this is something important to do if you’re going for candid & natural moments.  I usually have some sort of script in my head of what will happen or how to create these moments.  Getting people to relax and laugh is key.  For the Terry family it was important to give them things to do – so the photos read as an editorial and have that slice of life feeling.   So you’ll see we started with Alé, their son, waking his parents up in the morning.  The continued through eating some treats and making orange juice, then playing some games in the afternoon.  Was a great and fun shoot and I look forward to shooting more in-home family sessions soon!
