• 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!

About a year ago, right down the road from the Bayview Event Center, I had the opportunity to take Nicholas + Margaret’s engagement photos on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. It’s amazing how fast time flies! It was my first experience at the Bayview Event Center and I left quite impressed with the venue! The location is perfect for any Lake Minnetonka enthusiasts.

Back during their engagement photos, I could tell that these two had a strong relationship and it showed in their engagement images. It was a pleasure to work with these two. Along with N + M, it was a great experience meeting their families  – a wedding that included two strong family foundations. Along with that came the best Father/Daughter dance I’ve ever witnessed!

Kudos to the Montville’s and the Redman’s! You two threw quite the party! Thanks again to Nicholas and Margaret for choosing JWP for wedding photography! Much appreciated!

Thanks for looking!

I had the great pleasure of photographing Cody and Kelsey’s engagement photos a few weeks back. We chose to go with Ritter Farm Park in Lakeville, MN for the location and it did not disappoint! The weather in Minnesota this year has been unbelievable and the golden hour was in its finest form!

I’m looking forward to working with Cody and Kelsey again in June! A big thanks goes to C + K for hiring me as their Minnesota Wedding Photographer! I’m excited to share a few of my favorite images from their engagement session!

A few years back, when I still had my studio in Savage, I had several repeat customers; wedding nuptials turn into newborn photos. Newborn photos turn into 0ne-year photos, etc. Over the last two years, my business went through a transformation: I now only photograph weddings and senior portraits from time-to-time. As a result, my repeat business is few and far between.

Drew + Emily are my first repeat “customers’ in quite a long time.

“How can they be repeat customers,” you ask?

“These are engagement photos!” You say.

Even though D + E’s wedding is months away, I am already excited for the wedding blog post I get to put together for these two. The answer to how this young couple became a repeat customer will be explained come next May.

As for the engagement shoot, these two did phenomenal! We lucked out with a picture perfect evening! The colors on this particular night were breathtaking and the fog added a subtle haze to some of the images! The Golden Hour was out in full force and we took full advantage:)

Thanks again to Drew + Emily for choosing me as your Minnesota Wedding Photographer! Looking forward to working with you again in the spring!
