Editorial portrait and wedding photographer
& problem solver

Hi, I'm Becca

When you are comfortable and enjoying the moment, you also look great in your photos.

I work hard to make sure those things happen with creativity, flexibility, and some good Midwestern problem solving.

I’m a Minneapolis editorial portrait and wedding photographer.

I like what I do, and I make sure it shows.

Let me tell you a story

That story involves two happy people, their community of family and friends, and generally some gorgeous spaces.

That story focuses on happy and natural images of the two of you, fun and comfortable images with your friends and family, joyful candid images, and timeless documentation of day, all with an eye towards capturing the vibe - be it a moody warehouse, a snowy prairie, or cabin in the woods.

I love good food

I’m the photographer for several books including The Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin, and Lake Superior Flavors. Both involved long car trips with my husband, Jim. Ask me your questions about cheese, smoked fish, and road trips – I’ll have opinions.

It isn't even enough to say she takes beautiful photographs. She makes you feel comfortable, she makes you laugh, she genuinely cares about you and your day. She is thorough but creative, patient but gets it done. She was so fun to work with and made me feel so much more at ease about being getting my photo taken over and over. Becca will be the best and easiest decision you made.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

When should we book a photographer?

If you've read this far, photography is probably pretty important to you. I'd suggest booking your photographer as soon as you have your wedding date confirmed. Most out-of-towners book within a few days of getting in touch and I'm always happy to chat on the phone, via skype, or meet locals in person.

What is your style?

I am a storyteller. That story involves two happy people, their community of family and friends, and generally some gorgeous spaces.

So, what can you expect from those images? I focus on happy and natural images of the two of you, fun and comfortable images with your wedding party and family, joyful candid images, and timeless documentation of day, all with an eye towards bringing the environment (be it a moody warehouse, a snowy prairie, or cabin in the woods) into the images.

Should we get engagement photos?

If you want to! I always have an option to include an engagement session. Engagement sessions are totally a fun time to get to know each other and make use of locations or weather that would be difficult on your wedding day. I strongly recommend planning something that you enjoy doing together as a couple - a favorite walking spot, your rooftop patio, a favorite pub.

If you don't want to do engagement photos, that is just fine, too! We'll chat lots before your wedding!

Our location is really difficult (dark, windy, small, huge, moving) - can you shoot it?

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: One of the most important parts of wedding photography is having a lot of tools available no matter how the day unfolds. Some of those tools are managing people, anticipating moments, and general good cheer. Some tools are tangible and I have many types of lighting and lenses and composition techniques so that I’m ready with ideas no matter if your wedding is on a yacht, in a cave, or in a snowstorm.

What should I know about albums and printed pieces?

A USB drive makes a terrible heirloom - printed images last for generations. I recommend including an album in your wedding package so that you will have something to share with your family and future generation. I custom design all albums I produce and work with you on the perfect set of images, design, and styling.

I want an unplugged wedding (or I want to use all the hashtags!) - does that effect how you work?

Here is what I want - to photograph and deliver the photos that you want. If you want me to keep your guests in line and have the photos move along quicker, I've got an amazing “Camp Counselor” voice. If you want to get everyone in a huge selfie, I can help you coordinate it. If you have a hashtag, let me know so I can use it, too!

How do we know how many hours of photography we will need?

You might not know how many hours you need until you are closer to your wedding day. All weddings are different, but the most common thing couples add on is an extra hour of coverage.

In general, I'd recommend starting with the last hour of getting ready time, and then continue to about an hour of dancing or until your final scheduled events. On average, I am at most weddings for 8-9 hours.

Do you travel?

Yep – Duluth to New Zealand. I love getting on planes for people - ask me about travel! (also, no travel fees to Madison, WI or greater Minneapolis areas)

Do you work off a photo list? Should we make a list for you?

The majority of what I do is to document the day that you plan, without a shot list. However, family photos require a plan, so I send out information about coordinating and planning family photos and we can come up with a list and timeline together.

I cannot say enough about Becca - I call her my Wedding Genie! What puts Becca in a class of her own is everything she brought to the table that I could have never anticipated. Becca blew me away. She's fun, happy, funny and non-intrusive - shooting with her a pleasure. She also was armed and ready for anything that came her way. She tied twelve bowties when our groomsmen couldn't quite pull it off. Becca was fast on her feet and anticipated every little thing that could have happened - and was there to make sure that things went smoothly and that our day was totally stress-free!

The photos speak for themselves, but we felt her experience level allowed us to forget about so many typical wedding photo worries. She captured every moment that we could have wanted with an artistic eye, and definitely took care of a lot of little things without us having to ask. She was by far the best choice we made when planning our wedding.
