• 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!

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!

Last month, I had the opportunity to capture Dave + Corinne’s wedding at the beautiful Villa Bellezza in Wisconsin. My first wedding at the Villa Bellezza was in 2012. At that time, Villa Bellezza was brand new and I still remember the first impression it left on me. This location is first class and they have made several improvements since 2012. I’m looking forward to coming back next June for another wedding!

Dave + Corrine were a pleasure to work with! During their engagement session, we dealt with some horrible weather. Thankfully we were able to reschedule and lucked out with a beautiful night at Lake Harriet. After the several reschedules, these two deserved to have a picture perfect day. Turns out their October wedding fell on a gorgeous 70 degree autumn day. And overcast which is a dream for most photographers:)

Thanks again to Dave + Corinne for choosing me as their Villa Bellezza Wedding Photographer!

I had the opportunity to photograph Sawyer’s senior photos last October on his family farm. We also were able to use the basketball gym for a few shots as well! The farm was a great location for some rural-style senior portraits.

Sawyer, among many other seniors, lead a Hillsboro basketball team that almost took their first State Basketball Championship last year. Hillsboro made it all the way to the state finals at the Kohl Center! The seniors lead a strong team heading into the 2015-16 season.

Thanks again for the opportunity Sawyer! Good luck to the Hillsboro Tigers this year!
