• 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 when I first met Mike and Erin, we immediately connected by sharing our collective passion for University of Minnesota Athletics. Over the last several years, I’ve worked with a lot of Gopher fans, alumni, etc. However, Mike and Erin took their fandom to the next level…

A few weeks prior to their big day, Erin called me up and shared her secret surprise for her groom-to-be. Erin wanted to pull off something that Mike would for sure remember for the rest of his life. Traditionally, during wedding receptions, grooms will often times be blindfolded while attempting to remove their bride’s garter. Thanks to Erin’s planning and coordination, Mike was blindfolded while Goldy snuck in and took Erin’s place. As a result, Mike got touchy/feely with our favorite Minnesota mascot! Truly a great moment and well-executed by Erin!

I had an amazing time working with Mike and Erin! Mike found himself a special partner to spend the rest of his life with.. I mean how many brides can get a hand-written note written to Mike from Florida State’s head coach Jimbo Fisher as a surprise wedding gift?? Yes… That actually happened.

This wraps up my 6th wedding season! Next wedding: January 10! Thanks everyone for following my blog and I look forward to 2015!

Thanks again to Mike and Erin for choosing me as your Minneapolis Wedding Photographer!

It’s been awhile since I posted a senior photo blog. I wanted to share a few images from Colin’s senior photo session from a week ago. We chose to go with Westwood Hills Nature Center in St Louis Park for photos.

One of the main reasons I like senior photo shoots is the opportunity to engage with students who are about to embark on the college journey. I recall being that age and how exciting/nervous that time can be. Colin is a Lacrosse player for St Louis Park and it’s just astounding to hear how popular Lacrosse has become over the last 10 years. Back when I graduated from Eden Prairie High School in 2001, Lacrosse was in its infancy stage. Now it’s a sport that has blown up in Minnesota and rightfully so.

Thanks to the Monicatti’s for choosing me as Colin’s Senior Portrait Photographer.

I can’t say enough about these two! Jared and Nicole have been awesome to work with! Over the past year, I’ve got to know these two and quickly realized how dedicated these two are to each other! It’s quite impressive. Their wedding wasn’t anything short of impressive as well.

I first met Jared + Nicole last October where we chatted on the phone at length about their vision for 10/4. A few months later, we had a quick winter engagement photo shoot at Rice Park in St Paul. The session went great and these two were even willing to lace up ice skates in efforts to catch a special moment in the rink.

About Nine Months later and 75 degrees warmer, we all spent a gorgeous morning at Lake Harriet and had a great engagement session. By the time their big day arrived, I felt like I knew these two; more than just a normal working relationship. Like I’ve mentioned before, engagement sessions can lead to a great opportunity to build a great relationship with clients prior to the big day!

10/04 was absolutely gorgeous! Jared + Nicole lucked out with a picture perfect day. It was my first wedding at the Edina Country Club and I was blown away. I’ve been so lucky to photograph at some ridiculous this year and 2015 is no different! Thanks to all who I met at Jared + Nicole’s wedding! It was my pleasure! I also had the opportunity to work with Videographer David Cowardin with Lola Visuals. The guy does some amazing work: (Lola Visuals) To Jared and Nicole: Thanks again for choosing me as your wedding photographer! It was great to work with you two and you both have such a wonderful family! Congrats again!
