St Paul Hotel Winter Wedding – Sarah and Steven

In lieu of telling you about Sarah and Steven’s wedding, I’ll let them tell you about their experience working with me for their St Paul Hotel Winter Wedding.

Wedding at WA Frost and Minnehaha Gardens – Shauna and Chris

A Wedding Photographer’s bag of tricks and this wedding at WA Frost When I was a camp counselor, we would always talk about having a “bag of tricks” that you add to every week. The bag was a metaphor, but it tended to be filled with camp songs, get-to-know-you games, distraction ideas, time fillers, and a total…

St Paul City Hall Elopement

The world’s largest onyx statue in the world spins slowly in the lobby of St Paul’s city hall, overseeing our progress through the metal detectors and out of our winter coats. It is February, or maybe late January, and it is very cold, but it is also clear in a way that only comes in…

St Paul College Club Wedding in Winter – Anne + Jeremy
