"It's a Wonderful Life" @ St. Paul Hotel | St. Paul Event Photography

"It's A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play" is performing in the St. Paul Hotel's grand ballroom through December 26th. A wonderful collection of holiday songs, seasons greetings-grams, and the story of "It's a Wonderful Life" - all to a multi-course lunch or full dinner. Deemed a Pioneer Press Top 10 Holiday Event and Star Tribune Best Bet, it makes for a lovely family or group event.

Dec 2010 | Dan's Headshots | Guthrie/Mill City Museum

A Minneapolis actor and friend of mine, Dan was great to work with. Just have to love the look and variety at the Guthrie Theater/Mill City Museum area, a very popular (for good reason) location! Thanks Dan, you rocked it! :) (I love love love the first one...)

Dec 4 | Nadia's 16th Birthday | Minneapolis Event Photographer

It was a black and white theme for these snazzy high schoolers (I LOVE black and white - and not just for photography). Nadia had the great idea of supplying a photo station for all her birthday guests to enjoy before going to dinner at Pazzaluna downtown St. Paul. How fun! I hope you had a super-awesome and "sweet" sixteen, Nadia - you're fantastic! :)

Dec 4 | Grace's 13th Birthday | Minneapolis Event Photographer

A birthday party with a photo station... and collages... and cake! What more could a girl ask for? It was a blast photographing these gals in all their glory (even the birthday girl's awesome parents got in on the fun)! Happy happy birthday Grace - enjoy! :)

November 27 | Amber & Ryan | Married

Oh Amber and Ryan... How perfect you are for each other! I loved how Amber's twin sister Ashley (who married a Ryan herself last year) said in her Maid of Honor speech, "I'm so glad Amber's found a big kid to play with when she's not taking care of the other kids." (Both bride and groom are in the school system and met at work.) I've known Amber (& Ashley and their fantastic family) since high school - what an honor it was then to be able to share and even contribute to the beauty of her and Ryan's wedding day at the Millennium Hotel downtown Minneapolis. And this couple is just so fun - from candy Dots on the tables to a rockin' photo booth to -yes!- a choreographed and surprise 1st dance. Here's a little video of the tail end of it. Congrats you two - I look forward to seeing you soon, Pal! :)
