5.10.13 Nicole & Paul | Chambers & Sculpture Garden

Nicole and Paul were such a treat to work with.  Even with just a couple meetings and emails and no engagement session, I knew they'd be laid back, fun, and up for a good time.  They kept their day simple, straight-forward and elegant.  After a First Sight at Le Meridien Chambers Hotel's rooftop restaurant, the two of them and the two of us (my lovely assistant Lindie and myself) scooted to a couple of hot spots in Minneapolis to showcase their love of the city and each other.  Then to the Sculpture Garden for a super intimate and scenic, immediate-family-only ceremony.  Pausing at a couple more downtown spots on our way back to the Chambers and the reception/party catered by D'Amico began.  Just lovely!  I adore that Nicole and Paul knew what was important to them, invested in it, and let the rest go - it was very much their style and thus a perfect day!  (How lucky for me!)  Congrats, you two - you rocked it!

Meet Baby Bryce | Minneapolis Newborn Photography

Meet Bryce, our newest New Arrival baby!  We've started his 3-session collection with a newborn shoot and can't wait until the next one! :)

Friends since high school, I've been so blessed to photograph Bryce's mom, Ashley's wedding, her twin sister's wedding, and now Ashley and husband Ryan's new baby Bryce!  What a gem - just two weeks old at the time and so sweet.  Thanks to Grandma Laurie and Big Sister Addison for their help and special appearance, respectively.  Here are a few of my favorites.
