• 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!

On April 16th, while boarding a plane heading to Cancun,  I kept thinking to myself how fortunate I was to be part of Nate + Nicole’s destination wedding. Not only did I get to stay at the Riu Palace Peninsula, but more importantly I got to meet some really nice people — most of which were family/friends of Nate and Nicole. As I’ve mentioned before, never did I think I would be fortunate enough to photograph a wedding in the middle of the Caribbean. It is certainly a wedding I will remember for quite some time!

Thinking back to April 16th, I didn’t really know what to expect when it came it Mexico. After all, this was my second time out of the country. Once I arrived at the hotel, I was taken back by how ridiculously nice everything was. In addition to gorgeous beaches, The Riu Peninsula was an all inclusive resort with different activities throughout the day. I certainly took advantage of all the great food but I also learned that I’m not 21 anymore and Tequila doesn’t always play nice:)

Nate and Nicole’s destination wedding went incredibly smoothly. The weather was unreal and some much-welcomed cloud cover rolled in right in time for their ceremony. I was so excited to have the opportunity to capture a beach wedding and I’m thrilled to share some more images from Nate + Nicole’s wedding day in Cancun. I can’t say enough about these two and I’m looking forward to a continued friendship with the Heussner’s. Congrats you two!

My last engagement shoot in Minnesota consisted of christmas lights and cold temps! This time around it consisted of mild temps and gorgeous sunshine. I was stoked when I learned that Nick + Margaret wanted to do take their engagement photos in Excelsior. The Lake Minnetonka area in the spring is one my favorites.  These two were a lot of fun and it did a great job with their engagement session! A lot a laughter between these two!

I’m looking forward to Nick + Margaret’s big day in September! Thanks again to these two for hiring me as their wedding photographer!

As I am unpacking from my recent trip to Mexico, I can’t help but think how fortunate I am to photograph the biggest day of peoples lives. Back during the days at St Cloud State working for the school newspaper, if you would’ve told me that I would be shooting destination weddings eight years down the road I would’ve told you you’re crazy! I can’t thank Nate and Nicole enough for this opportunity!

Nate and I met at Rasmussen College over five years ago. Eventually, Nate would also meet his future wife, Nicole, at Rasmussen College. Fast forward five years, and we all work at Oracle together! It’s been great to see these two grow into a strong couple. I was honored when these two approached me about wedding photography.. Then I quickly learned that it might be a destination wedding! After a late fall engagement photo session (See Here), and months of planning, Nate informed me that their 2015 wedding would be taking place on the white sandy beaches of Cancun! The wedding was an unforgettable experience and I’m thrilled that I was able to be part of Nate + Nicole’s caribbean destination wedding at the Riu Palace!

Again, as I look through these images, I feel good –mainly because I got to photograph a wedding for two pretty cool individuals in one of most gorgeous places I’ve ever been to. Thank you again to Nate + Nicole for choosing me as their destination wedding photographer!

Here is sneak preview of Nate + Nicole’s photo session on the beach. Stay tuned to see images from the wedding!
