When a bride as beautiful and sweet as Dana inquires about having their wedding photographed – I seriously jump up and down. It’s wedding couples like these two that make me truly love my job.

When a bride as beautiful and sweet as Dana inquires about having their wedding photographed – I seriously jump up and down. It’s wedding couples like these two that make me truly love my job. I can’t begin to tell you how much fun I had getting to spend the day photographing this intimate wedding.

hotel and formal photos: Hewing Hotel – Minneapolis

flowers: Lake Harriet Florist

reception: Angelina’s Kitchen – Woodbury

If you haven’t been to one of Minneapolis’ hottest new hotels “Hewing Hotel”, I can not recommend it enough – especially if you’re a bride who wants gorgeous getting ready photos on your wedding day. Their elite suites are picturesque.

In 15 years, this was the first wedding where the couple requested their formal photos be taken in the lobby of a hotel. As a photographer who’s been in hundreds of hotels, this immediately made me cringe but the results were absolutely stunning!!! Thank you Hewing Hotel for designing your lobby with photographers in mind.

If you are an engaged couple who loves to have fun – contact me soon about booking your wedding. I can customize a package to work within just about any budget – just ask! Don’t want to spend your wedding day stuck in front of a camera or wishing you could have your pictures taken somewhere other than your venue? No problem! Let’s do an after wedding portrait session at the location of your choice. These are SO much fun!!!

{Becky & Brian: Wedding}

November 1st, 2016

One of my most cherished tasks is when I get to photograph my beautiful friends on their special day (ok in all honesty, it’s a close second to being bridesmaid). Thank you for including me in your day, my friend, Becky and long time friend (Brian) Berg! I wish you a long happy life together […]

Monica Geller-Bing: Chandler, for so long I wondered if I would ever find my prince, my soul mate. Then three years ago, at another wedding, I turned to a friend for comfort. And instead, I found everything that I’d ever been looking for my whole life. And now here we are with our future before us and I only want to spend it with you, my prince, my soulmate, my friend. Unless you don’t want to. You go!

Chandler Bing: Monica, I though this was going to be the most difficult thing I ever had to do. But when i saw you walking down that aisle, I realized how simple it was. I love you. And surprises that come our way, it’s ok, because I will always love you. You are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. You wanna know if I’m sure?

Joey Tribbiani: You may now kiss the bride. So I guess by the powers vested in me by the state of New York and the internet guys, I now pronounce you husband and wife. O WAIT! Do you take eachother?

Monica Geller-Bing: I do.

Chandler Bing: I do.

Such a beautiful wedding, on such a rainy day! Emily is the sister of my good friend, Monica. It was an honor to be able to photograph another special event for this family. Emily picked the most gorgeous wedding colors and added in beautiful succulents; her dress was stunning. The ladies got ready at the St. Paul Hotel while the boys hung out at Hermes Haberdashery. If you haven’t checked out Hermes, I highly recommend. Great service and a super cute shop. The wedding took place at Irving Park, quite picturesque, and finished up at the Science Museum. I had a wonderful time. Hopefully I’ll get to photograph some more Hecklinger siblings in the future! bride and groom at st paul library mn beautiful wedding couple in lowertown allies st paul mn Bride and groom outside St Paul Hotel in Garden Kissing beautiful bride outside st paul public library mn Bride and groom outside st paul public library mn bridal party wedding at Irvine Park St Paul MN Wedding party in lowertown st paul mn breaker

Every once in a while I get the opportunity to do one of my favorite things… assist other amazing photographers on wedding sessions and sometimes I capture some fun moments while I am there that I love to share. Amanda and Jeff were married at Northwestern College in Roseville, MN which is such a beautiful location that I always love going to. The grounds and chapel have endless posing locations to choose from. A photographers dream. As you can see, they are a very attractive couple which made my job just a wee bit too easy. Not to mention, they were both very easy going and carefree to work with. So much fun! Amanda wore one of the most elegant dress I have ever seen and her hair style matched perfectly. What a gorgeous smile!

This summer I had the privilege of assisting for my girlfriend at Jackie and Kyle’s wedding which was held outdoors at beautiful Green Haven Golf Course. This couple was so much fun. I really had a blast. The day started out with a first look on the gulf course and Jackie surprised her sweetheart with an engraved wedding band. It was pretty a perfect moment.

I love outdoor weddings. It is such a bummer that you just never know what the weather is going to be but for most of them the weather turns out great which makes for amazing photos with beautiful backgrounds. Her wedding colors really popped against the green as well. Super fun. Did I mention that they had been together for 8 years? It was time for a crazy celebration!
