Alex — 2010 Eagan High School Senior

It was fun exploring the city of St. Paul with Alex and his mom… we came across some great spots with awesome character. Alex also plays soccer, so after downtown St. Paul we headed over to a soccer field to catch some shots there as well.


Bethany — 2010 Simley High School Senior

Bethany’s session was at the Dodge Nature Center in West St. Paul as well as a cool old barn her mom found for us to photograph at. It was awesome chatting about photography with Bethany… I definitely had a lot of fun with her session!


Monica — 2010 Simley High School Senior

This was definitely a fun session… Monica chose her location, and it turned out to be beautiful. She was even willing to step into the water, which made for some really great, fun photos!

Vanessa and Eli — Engagement Session

Vanessa and Eli’s session was at Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. We had a lot of fun finding the perfect spots along the lake shore, then heading to the Rose Garden and the Peace Gardens, just off of the lake. Vanessa and Eli, you’re a great couple and we’re looking forward to photographing your wedding!

Catherine and Will — All-Day Bride and Groom Session

We had a great, full day photographing Catherine and Will. Their wedding was the weekend after our session, but they decided to scale back their ceremony and instead go for a full-day portrait session with the two of them. We went to a lot of really awesome locations: the Sculpture Gardens, the Guthrie, Central Park in Roseville, The Mill City Museum, and a few other cool places around Minneapolis.  

One of the greatest things about Catherine and Will are their free spirits and sense of adventure. Their humor is contagious, and their love for each other is obviously very strong. Thanks for the great time, Catherine and Will! Congrats on your wonderful marriage!
