• 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’ve known Kali since my days at Rasmussen College. Although we grew up in the same city and attended the same schools, we didn’t cross paths until we were well out of college! After we met at Rasmussen College, I quickly learned that Kali was the younger sibling of two other Holden’s I knew growing up in Eden Prairie.

After getting to know Kali, we discovered that we not only went to the same high school, but we both attended St Cloud State University! Furthermore, Kali left Rasmussen College for Oracle; the same transition I made only a few months later!

Mic and Kali recently moved to Seattle, WA. Even though Mic and Kali reside 1,600 miles to the west, we yet again crossed paths when Kali contacted JWP for wedding photography. Throughout this process, I met Mic as well. Mic was hilarious during the photo shoot and it resulted in some great images!

I’m looking forward to celebrating with these two in the fall at the Profile Event Center in Minneapolis! Thanks again to Mic + Kali for choosing JWP!

A fews weeks back, Rob + Candice introduced me to some great spots hidden in right in downtown Minneapolis. As these two begin their house building adventures in the coming weeks, they will be saying goodbye to downtown Minneapolis. I always get satisfaction when I see my work on a canvas, prints, hanging on a wall, etc. After editing Rob + Candice’s engagement session, I realized these images might serve as their last documented memories in their downtown neighborhood; the fact these two will look back at these nostalgic images down the road makes me feel a sense of accomplishment. The thought that images like these might be shared with generations to come is a great feeling.

Rob + Candice were so great to work with, and I look forward to their October wedding. Wedding season #8 is about to start in a couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to blogging throughout the summer! Until then, here are some images from Rob + Candice’s engagement shoot in Minneapolis.

On December 20th, the first winter night in Minneapolis, I decided to venture over to South Minneapolis hoping to capture an image to hang up in our home office. After bundling up, I got out of my car and headed for the pedestrian bridge that stretches over 35W North. This bridge provides a well-known angle of the Minneapolis skyline.

After taking off the gloves and getting the tripod in order, I scoped out a small hole in the bridge’s fencing. Thankfully I was able to use someone else’s vandalism :). After a few adjustments to the shutter speed, I was able to capture a colorful image of Minneapolis on the first night of Winter 2015.

In 2016, one of my many photography-related goals will be to photograph more landscapes, architecture, etc. in addition to weddings.

Thanks to CG Pro Prints, we now have a gigantic canvas wrap of the photos below. Love how these turned out!
