  • 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!

I met Jared and Nicole for the first time last winter during our winter engagement session at Rice Park in St Paul. We were lucky enough to catch a nice December afternoon complimented by snow and somewhat comfortable temps. This time around the weather was a comfortable 70 degrees with a slight overcast– perfect weather for photography.

When I first chatted with this couple, I could tell  photography was an important aspect of their wedding planning. I love working with couples who truly appreciate photography because for me it’s so much more satisfying. Back in December, Jared and Nicole laced up the ice skates for their engagement shoot and we caught some great photos of them sharing a moment in the middle of the rink. It was cold and crowded that night on the rink but for a split second we were able to capture images that made it appear as if these two were the only ones out on the rink that night. I can’t say enough about my clients and how willing they are to put some work into capturing a great moment.

I had a lot of fun with this photo shoot! There was certainly something different about the lighting the morning of this engagement shoot. The overcast at Lake Harriet sky provided the perfect amount of fill light. I love shooting in the mornings! Overall though, these two are seriously so photogenic that it makes my job a whole heck of a lot easier.

So from lacing up ice skates to taking off sandals for a walk on the beach, I truly enjoyed both engagement sessions with these two. Thanks again to Jared and Nicole for choosing me as your Minneapolis Wedding Photographer! Looking forward to October!

If you ask most wedding photographers, they will tell you that a few weddings from their past will stick out from the rest of them. Whether it’s ideal lighting conditions, location, the couple, etc., we all have our select weddings where we look back and say, “Wow, did I really shoot that wedding?” “That wedding was one of a kind.” “The lighting and location were impeccable.”

There is no doubt the Saab wedding (or #saabfest) will fall into my personal “Top 5″ category. Everything was simply amazing! The people, the location, the weather, the fireworks, Yes FIREWORKS! were all perfect. the Aster Cafe in Minneapolis is a great location for an intimate wedding ceremony and reception. They did a top notch job! The florist, Kaity Thompson, (www.bloomlovely.com) made my ring shots a lot easier thanks the great work she put into the bouquets. Everyone did a great job with planning and It’s amazing that a simple email to my inbox from a couple in Washington DC turned into such an unbelievable opportunity for my growth as a photographer.

Additionally, #saabfest was the first wedding where I got to use my  new lens! I recently purchased Canon’s 24-70 2.8L II and it was worked flawlessly! However, what really made these images great was the connection between Nick and Hanan. There are couples who are in love, and there are couples who are in love and are undoubtedly made for each other. Since my exposure to this great couple is limited, I can tell these two were absolutely made for each other. As a result, their love poured over into their wedding images. I was just lucky enough to be the person to capture it all.

In the end, it was yet another fantastic couple I was fortunate enough to work with. The Saab wedding will most likely go down as one of JWP’s favorites. To the couple who was brave enough to trek through the snow to capture images behind Minnehaha Falls. To the couple who trusted me with their big day. To the couple who threw one hell of a party!! I thank you!! Thank you for choosing me as your Minneapolis Wedding Photographer!
