• Minnesota Wedding Photography | Jim Woolsey

    Hello! Welcome to my blog! My name is Jim and I am a Minneapolis Wedding Photographer. I also specialize in senior portraits in the Minneapolis metro area. My passion is photography and I am grateful to have the opportunity to do what I love for a job! Over the last few years, my business has given me an opportunity to stick to my roots: Modern Photography. I absolutely love photography and I am about to enter my 8th wedding season!

    Ever since I can remember, I’ve been intrigued by pictures of all kinds. To this day, I still think it’s amazing how a single photograph can tell such a descriptive story. After high school I decided to follow my dream and I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Photojournalism from St Cloud State. To this day, I still try to learn something during each photo shoot! However, the most important concept I’ve learned is how to tell a story by using a camera. From weddings to Senior Portraits, I get a thrill by using a camera to capture moments that will live on forever!

    My wife and I, along with our four children, live in Shakopee, MN and we absolutely love the area. During the week, I spend my time as a consultant at Oracle in downtown Minneapolis. I limit my availability to 10 wedding dates a year so I fill up fast! Feel free to email me if you have any questions!

I can’t really put this wedding into words. Rather, I will let the images speak for themselves.

These two… John + Juliette put together one of the most unique weddings I’ve ever had to chance to be apart of. John + Juliette share many passions; one of which is the love for Dinosaurs and pretty much anything pre-historic. Having a themed wedding can be a lot of work. Also, in order for wedding guests to understand the theme, it needs to be simple enough for the guests to “get it.” John + Juliette absolutely nailed it!

In addition to their wedding day, John + Juliette incorporated their 85-million-year-old theme into their Engagement Session. In the end, everything came together perfectly. The McColl Pond Environmental Center was a perfect setting for John + Juliette’s Pre-historic adventure. It’s blatantly obvious these two are crazy for each other — the love these two have for each other is truly remarkable. I am happy that I got be part of it!

Thanks again to John + Juliette for giving me the opportunity to capture their pre-historic wedding day.

My first ever engagement session back eight years ago took place around the Stone Arch Bridge Area in Minneapolis. Over the years, a lot has changed; US Bank Stadium now holds a prominent position in the Minneapolis skyline; St Anthony Main has gone through a complete makeover, and the Twins no longer play indoor baseball! Minneapolis has become a hotspot, no doubt!

In the middle of all the changes over the years, a few elements of Minneapolis have not changed; the Stone Arch Bridge is still breathtaking; St Anthony Main area remains a photographer’s haven, and people are still playing Pokemon?

John Michael + Caroline wanted to capture an urban feel with their engagement session. Additionally, we spent the last part of the engagement session at Como Park in St Paul. Despite a one-day rain delay, the wait was well worth it due to the weather being absolutely perfect! Over the years, I’ve had dozens of photo sessions at the Stone Arch Bridge and I’ve never had such great lighting during the golden hour! For the photographers out there, the dynamic range with Nikon is a true game-changer. Underexposing in camera can save your highlights and the #nikon sensor does a remarkable job with shadow details.

JM + C nailed their engagement session! I had a great time with these two!! Looking forward to capturing their big day in 2017!!
