• 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 had the pleasure of capturing Rob + Candice’s Minneapolis wedding in the middle of one of the most gorgeous fall seasons I can remember. Even though it was Oct 22, the thermometer was pushing 70 degrees and the fall color was at its peak — a perfect combination for a Minnesota wedding.

When I first met these two, they were living in downtown Minneapolis. Earlier in the year, I had the opportunity to capture their engagement photos in downtown Minneapolis; they introduced me to the Monte Carlo and some other great spots! Fast forward to October and Rob + Candice threw their wedding reception just down the street from their former residence.

Between the weather, ceremony, reception, etc., their wedding was the perfect way to cap off my wedding season. As I wrap up another wedding season, I am thankful for 2016. It never seizes to amaze me when families, especially parents, dedicate so much time and effort into their child’s wedding day. Both the Gangl and Johnson families did such an awesome job with help Rob + Candice’s wedding day.

I am excited to share my last blog of the season! I will be working on a new blogsite for 2017. Be sure to check out my Instagram account this winter as I will be updating it frequently with my favorite images from 2016.

Thanks all for reading and Happy Holidays!

November is usually a time of year where I’m primarily focused on editing and finishing up any last minute bookings for the following year. This year, however, has been quite different; November in Minnesota (up until a few days ago) was unseasonably warm. Even though I’m currently looking out at snow, November will go down as one of the warmest November’s in a long time.

Thanks to some awesome weather, it extended our fall for us Minnesota folks. With winter looming, we’ll take it! When I scheduled Paul + Heather’s engagement session for the 1st week of November, I was expecting mid 40’s and hopefully some sun. Instead, we had September-like temps along with that picture-perfect autumn golden hour at Minnehaha Falls.

Paul and Heather were simply awesome to work with! I met with these two a few months back in Minneapolis and I immediately felt a connection with this awesome couple! These two had a few spots picked out and introduced me to a few hidden gems at Minnehaha Falls. I’m looking forward to their big day next year in downtown Minneapolis! Here is a preview of Paul + Heather’s engagement session from a few weeks ago. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!

I am so excited to share Mic + Kali’s wedding blog! I met Kali back in the day at Rasmussen College. At the time, I didn’t know who she was. Later I would find out that Kali also went to Eden Prairie High School in Minnesota. Furthermore, I would learn she was the younger sister of the Holden brothers who also graduated in the early 2000’s from EP. Since Eden Prairie is such a huge high school, this is a common occurrence 🙂

As time went by, I also learned Kali went to St Cloud State just a few years after I graduated from the Harvard of the West :). In 2009, we both found ourselves employed at Rasmussen College. From there, we would both make the transition to Oracle! It’s crazy how similar our paths have become! During this time, I got to meet Mic. I didn’t know how truly funny he was until I did their engagement session! It’s no wonder why Mic + Kali’s wedding party was an absolute riot! I don’t think I’ve laughed so much at such wedding party ridiculousness.

Similar to the path I’m currently on, Kali also found a partner for life; someone to grow old with and laugh throughout. I was fortunate to find my life-long partner, and it appears Kali did as well.

Thanks to Mic + Kali for hiring JWP for their wedding photography! Between the weather, ceremony, reception venue, this wedding was certainly one of many highlights of wedding season 2016. I’m excited to share these images from Mic + Kali’s Minneapolis wedding!!
