This will be fun
Editorial portrait and wedding photographer
& problem solver
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.
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’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.
When should we book a photographer?
What is your style?
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 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?
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?
I want an unplugged wedding (or I want to use all the hashtags!) - does that effect how you work?
How do we know how many hours of photography we will need?
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?
Do you work off a photo list? Should we make a list for you?

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.
