• 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!

Over the past several years, photography has allowed me to stay in contact with former co-workers across the Minneapolis metro area. There are many things I love about wedding photography and staying in contact with friends and  former co-workers is just one of many reasons why I continue to photograph weddings. Oh, and the good food is also pretty awesome!

I met Michelle back about five years ago when I was working at Rasmussen College. We played softball together on the infamous Rasmussen Rampage softball team! Michelle is down-to-earth and has an hilarious sense of humor. When I learned that she was getting married and wanted me to part of it, I couldn’t help but smile. Not only will I get capture Sam + Michelle’s big day, but I would also get a chance to reconnect with former co-workers who I would now consider friends. I also knew a few laughs would be in store and I was certainly right!

Sam + Michelle were great to work with and they picked a wonderful reception location: The Mendakota Country Club. I hope I will get back there someday! Lastly, I finally got a chance to capture a wedding at Fort Snelling. Such a unique location for a ceremony! All of this and a beautiful May Saturday afternoon made Sam + Michelle’s wedding memorable! Thanks again to Sam + Michelle for choosing me as their wedding photographer!

Enjoy!

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!
