Abbie & Andy {expecting}

Abbie is one of my oldest friends and I couldn’t be more excited that she and Andy are having their first baby soon! When they came up to Minneapolis, it was a great opportunity to have a fantastic brunch and then head to Como Park for a little maternity/belly session in the conservatory.

Brandon’s Bar Mitzvah – preview

I was lucky enough to be able to photograph Brandon for his Bar Mitzvah this January – here is a quick preview from his Bar Mitzvah at Temple of Aaron in St Paul.

Minneapolis Engagement Photographer – Hanna & Wes

I am so excited for Hanna & Wes’s wedding next year at The Creamery – a restaurant and inn that used to be a cheese factory in Wisconsin! Anyway, I am sure that I will go on and on about their wedding in due course, but for now I will focus on their fun engagement photos at Como Park in St Paul. Things were already going well, and then Hanna pulled out cowboy boots *and* hot pink pumps! I am not a huge shoe person, but I was totally won over all over again!


Joyce & Dan – small wedding at Como Park

Joyce and Dan had a lovely wedding at the Como Park Conservatory this June. The setting sun was a perfect backgrop for photos with the Como Conservatory, and even their dog was able to join us for a quick few photos.

Summit Horizon Red Ale

Summit Brewery in St Paul is releasing a new beer to add to their impressive collection – Horizon Red Ale. I had the opportunity of tasting this new brew with the brew master one morning, and he even led us on a tour of the plant. I should say for the record that I don’t generally like hop-centered beers, but I was really impressed by the nice balance of this one – a little fruity to counter the bitterness. This is a complicated beer, but one that I could imagine drinking on the patio with a nice brat.
