• 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!

Back last December, on a chilly Saturday morning, I met Jon and Amber for the first time. We chatted about wedding plans and locations, etc and their vision for their September wedding. Jon + Amber had visions of an outdoor ceremony with chandeliers, sparklers, etc. I could tell within the first few minutes that capturing great photos was a priority.

These two were an absolute pleasure to work with. Back on 1/11/15, in the dead of winter, these two braved the elements and had their engagement session which included a much-needed bonfire at Ritter Park in Lakeville. During the winter as a Minnesotan, it’s sometimes hard to fathom the concept of Summer and the thought of an outdoor ceremony felt like it was eons away! After the engagement session as I thawed in my car, I remember thinking to myself that an outdoor September wedding with sparklers sounded pretty inviting!

How time flies. 237 days later and 83 degrees warmer, Jon + Amber got married at the beautiful Bracketts Crossing in Lakeville, Minn. After spending their engagement session in subzero degree weather, these two deserved a beautiful wedding day, and Mother Nature sure delivered!

Thanks again to Jon + Amber for hiring me as their Bracketts Crossing Wedding Photographer! I had a great time and felt fortunate to be part of their big day!

I first met Clinton back during my days at Rasmussen College. When Clinton emailed me about his wedding I was thrilled that he considered JWP for his wedding photos. Clinton is a big sports fan and I recall many conversations at Rasmussen about Twins Baseball, Vikings Football, etc. It only made sense that Clinton would find a person that, too, has a passion for Football and Baseball. Unfortunately, Kerrie is from Wisconsin and prefers the tendencies of a typical cheesehead: An obsession with the Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers :).

Even though Kerrie is from Wisconsin, she still seems like a nice person:):)

All kidding aside, Clinton and Kerrie have a great relationship. These two were so awesome to work with and I had a lot of fun on 08/22! It was my first wedding at the Canon River Winery in Cannon Falls and I left quite impressed. Over the last few years, I have discovered hidden gems within the outskirts of the metro area and Cannon River Winery certainly falls into that category — perfect location for a winery-themed wedding. These two did a fantastic job with wedding planning and preparation and took full advantage of a great wedding venue.

Thanks again to Clinton and Kerrie from choosing me as their Cannon River Winery Wedding Photographer. Looking forward to sharing these images with you all! Even the 40 MPH winds didn’t stop us! Enjoy!
