Minneapolis Orthodox Jewish Wedding

On timlessness and beauty at this Minneapolis Orthodox Jewish Wedding Doesn’t everyone hope that, looking back at their wedding photos, there will be something effortless and classic that lasts? Beyond the changing senses of style and technology, past the newest fad in lighting or hairstyles – something organic and timeless. I hope for that with every wedding I shoot. And I find it in every wedding I shoot – it isn’t generally found in the details, no matter how stunning, or in the decorations or even in the clothes. Its always found in the interactions between people. Honest, and beautiful and gorgeous beyond measure. All of which is…

Beth El Synagogue + International Market Square wedding {Laura + Alan}

I love morning weddings – start with the beautiful morning light, everyone is fresh for the ceremony and still has energy for dancing, which was particularly important for Laura + Alan’s wedding as they had a hora that can only be described as “energetic.” A lovely way to celebrate, all around.

Temple Israel and Walker Art Center wedding {Annie + David}

A wedding ceremony at Temple Israel inspires the kind of awe that makes you really pay attention. The weight of the architectural detail, the vastness of the main space, the intricate ceilings, the permanence of stone. Annie and David’s wedding combined that kind of awe with pure joy – from their families, from their friends, and mostly in being together. It was a total pleasure to document their wedding service, and then their exuberant reception at the Walker Art Center. A hora really is better with a panoramic view of the Minneapolis skyline!

Varsity Theater & Loring Pasta Bar wedding {Molly & Andy}

If you are planning a wedding, take a note from Molly & Andy’s: get the right people involved, find the things that are important to you, and then just let it happen. I admire how they can stay in the moment – from the hilarious faces they make to their utter respect and love for each other. Nice job, you two, in finding each other and then planning a great celebration.
