A few weeks ago my friend Chad contacted me after he and his wife Jenny welcomed their third child into the family. I was honored to have the chance to photograph Arya Florence’s newborn photos! Enjoy a few of my favorites from her session!
I’m happy to share Andrea’s senior photos! She is about to be a senior at Maple Grove High School and plays LaCrosse and Hockey so we wanted to incorporate that into her photos. It’s been a busy summer for me with lots of fabulous young men and women about to enter their senior year. I’m always honored to be part of this exciting time in their lives!
I had a fabulous time with Andrea while we explored a part of Minnesota that I’ve never been to. Her grandmother lives on Lake Independence so we did the photos there, and went into Loretto for some small town charm. Andrea is a bright and delightful young woman and her personality shone in the photos. She told me when we started that she is not photogenic but as you can see from the photos below that is simply not true.
Best of luck in your senior year, Andrea!
It’s always a pleasure working with my very talented friend, Betsy Wall! When she asked me to second shoot this wedding with her over the 4th of July weekend she said it would be gorgeous, man was she right! The locations, details, and styling of this event made this wedding a photographers dream. Not to mention, Sam & Aaron and their families were fabulous to work with. Days like this make me realize I am so lucky to be able to do my dream job.
So all around this was a fabulous wedding that I was happy to be part of! The full list of vendors are at the bottom of the post and I would recommend any one of them. Thank you to Betsy for letting me share some of their photos on my blog! The photos are taken over five locations and many hours. I had so many favorites and I wasn’t even the lead photographer! Check out Betsy’s recap of the wedding on her blog.
There were so many great things about this wedding but my favorite had to be listening to and watching the wedding band, Northstar. This group has TALENT! Their style and energy made for a great vibe at the reception, and kept the dance floor packed.
A’BULAE is a newer wedding venue in downtown St. Paul. They renovated the top two floors of a parking ramp and made it into a swanky place to dance the night away. Pretty smart use of space if you ask me! It’s convenient to get to, and the ramp below makes it easy for guests to park. Look at those rows of windows, too!
And a great bonus feature of this venue is getting to go on the rooftop at sunset!
