Indian Baby Shower | Minnesota Event Photography

I had the pleasure of photographing this bright, fun, colorful baby shower at the Mediterranean Cruise Cafe in Burnsville a couple weeks ago.  Here are a few of the fun details and candids.

Winter Wedding Style Shoot | Minneapolis Wedding Photography and Team

This "Winter Wedding" Style Session was a dream team come true! We spent a (very February-like) day in the studio combining forces to create this image collection. 
Here are the wedding professionals that generously contributed their expertise and awesomeness: 
Accessories: Bridal Accents Couture and personally owned 
Hair & Make-up: Farrah & Jamie, independent stylists from The Hair District
Models: Ava & Chrissy 
Photography: lauren b. photography

A gigantic thank you to all involved, who donated their time and blessed us with their talents - it was a wonderful and invigorating day!

Wise words from Ashley Fox regarding our approach: We took some marvelous dresses, paired them with things a bride may already own from her or her grandmother's or mom's collection and worked them in to fit a bride's own style. For example, the cowboy boots and belt were Ava's, Chrissy with the black shoes and necklace. 

With the hair and makeup, we started with a more natural, classic look and then developed into a wild, edgy, artful style with a high-fashion approach. Michelle with Bridal Accents Couture was so generous to share these amazing gowns!

It's All About Weddings at the Arboretum | Wedding Fair Photography

The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum hosted a charming wedding fair (notice the lauren b. booth?) and food tasting over the weekend.  The various table designs were by Festivities - something stunning for every style! - and I was asked to take some photos of the set up and plated food.  Yummy!

Embassy Suites Mpls - Airport | Vendor Shots and Wedding Photography

The Embassy Suites Minneapolis -Airport is a beautiful, lush hotel right near the airport.  I visited last week to take some vendor shots of their meeting spaces and reception decor.  How fun - love the bright and cool blue and hanging lantern globes!  What a nice, intimate, and versatile space for a wedding or event!  Here are a few favorites!
