  • 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 grown faster than I could imagine. I’m excited to announce that my first ever photography studio will be opening Fall of 2012 in Savage MN!

    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 newborns, I get a thrill by using a camera to capture moments that will live on forever!

    My wife and I, along with our two children, live in Savage MN and we absolutely love the area. I belong to several associations :Twin City Bridal Association, Professional Photographers of America (PPA), and the Savage Chamber of Commerce to name a few. Feel free to email me if you have any questions!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting these two. Even though this particular session took place at a location I frequent: Stone Arch Bridge, it was series of firsts at this great location:

1) For the first time, I met a couple who lives within a few hundred yards of the Stone Arch Bridge. For some reason I’ve always wondered what it would be like to live in such a fun area!

2) It was the first time I’ve seen water move with such force on the Mississippi River!

3) It was the first time I took a couple back into a “Graffiti Tunnel.”

It was certainly a unique session at the Stone Arch Bridge and Phil and Chelsea were willing to explore some hard-t0-get areas. After meeting and hanging out with these two, I’m really looking forward to what their wedding will bring next year at the fantastic Profile Event Center! Thanks again to Phil and Chelsea for choosing me as their Minneapolis Wedding Photographer!

When I first met Trevor and Angela last fall, I quickly realized how laid back these two were! Furthermore, I found out that Angela’s old brother and I graduated from Eden Prairie High School together. Small world! To add some nostalgia, they informed me they were getting married about 3 miles from where I grew up at Pax Christi in Eden Prairie. Lastly, I found out their wedding reception would be taking place within a few hundred yards from my Oracle office in downtown Minneapolis. It all seemed too good to be true!

Just like I envisioned, Trevor and Angela were so great to work with! Kudos goes to Angela as she did such a great job with timeline planning and coordination and it resulted in such a smooth wedding day for everyone involved! And the reception venue…. WOW! I never imagined that I would get to photograph a wedding on the 50th floor of the IDS Center in Downtown Minneapolis. The views were just as spectacular as the wedding venue! Windows On Minnesota has quickly become one of my favorite wedding venues in Minneapolis! Just Awesome!

Even though I’m not the one getting married, I constantly check the weather forecast during the week leading up to the wedding. The weather called for a 40% chance of rain, but the weather couldn’t of worked out better! Sure, it rained a little (for good luck!), but it didn’t affect the wedding day whatsoever. It was almost too good to be true! Thanks again to the Windows On Minnesota for hosting such a great party. Thanks to The Covers for playing such great music. Lastly, thank you Trevor and Angela for choosing me as your Minneapolis Wedding Photographer. I was honored to be a part of your big day. Enjoy!

When I first met Dan and Tierney at my studio last August, I immediately realized how happy and laid back these two were with each other! I’m not sure how I’ve become so lucky with meeting such great couples over the last several years! Fortunately, a friend of mine, Angie (Thanks Again!), referred my name to Tierney. Luckily for me I was fortunate enough to be part of their big day!

I grew up in Eden Prairie and I’ve always been intrigued by Hazeltine Golf Club. It might be because of the past PGA events they’ve hosted, or just the pristine condition of the course. When Dan and Tierney mentioned the possibility of having their reception at Hazeltine, I immediately circled May 1o on the calendar.

I’ve seen my fair share of wedding venues over the last few years and I would certainly rank Hazeltine towards the top. From a photographer’s perspective, this venue provides a ton of natural light and great areas around the clubhouse for group portraits. Combine Hazeltine with the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and you have yourself a great opportunity to capture some great memories on your wedding day!

Thanks again to Dan and Tierney for choosing me as your wedding photographer!
