As much as I like to geek out about equipment and ideas, there is one main thing you should know about me: I like what I do, and I make sure it shows.
I believe that every challenge is an opportunity – some of my best photos have been taken in rain, surrounded by mosquitos, next to dumpsters, and with only 30 second to spare.
I photograph gorgeous locations and happy people, but I also like making sure that you laugh a lot, that family photos happen efficiently, and that the photographic part of your wedding is stress free. The rest of the time, I document the day you planned, the people who are celebrating with you, and I try to be a photo ninja that you don’t notice.
In 2016, I won a blue ribbon for my canned watermelon pickles at the Minnesota State Fair.
I’ve been running my photography business full time since 2006.
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.
I understand that photos are how you’ll share your wedding with your friends, family, and future generations, and I take that responsibility extremely seriously. Everything else will be fun.
If you’re in South Minneapolis, you’ll probably find me at Peace Coffee, and that’s where I’d suggest we meet if you want to chat more! And if you aren’t in Minneapolis – I love traveling and video chatting, so lets make it happen!
