Wedding Photography

Published Weddings

All of the wedding magazines are coming out with their latest issues and we are so happy to be a part of them! It is part of our workflow to submit weddings to be published, but there is never a guarantee of getting a wedding picked by editors. We are very lucky to have such amazing clients who also plan gorgeous weddings - and go along with our crazy ideas (see Katharine & Ryan's photo in the rain!)

We had not one, not two, not three, but FOUR weddings featured from our companies this year - three being from my clients here at Photogen Inc. and one wedding by Thea Volk of our Rivets and Roses team! Below are some of the spreads, but make sure to check out the following issues on newsstands - they are so gorgeous in print: Minnesota Bride, MPLS / St Paul Weddings, The Knot Minnesota. Congratulations to Anna & Chris, Ali & Willie, Jessica & Elroy and Katharine & Ryan!

Married! // Mr. and Mrs. Umhoefer

 

After meeting them only once, Maddie and Ben are a couple who leave you inspired through their energy and true joy for life. For example, at their wedding, Maddie's sister gave a speech about how Maddie ends up being best friends with everyone she meets. I remember the first time I met Maddie and Ben - I definitely wanted to be friends with them and was SO looking forward to their wedding. I knew it was going to be incredible.

Maddie and Ben are my first 'Tinder Couple' and their story is filled with so many wonderful moments. After going through the photos from the wedding day, that was the theme that I kept thinking; so many great moments everywhere I looked.

The couple had an all-star list of wedding vendors and their event was stunning. Absolutely stunning.

Cheers to the new Mr. and Mrs. Umhoefer! We are so happy for you!

LOVEe

Adam and Katherine are simply a joy to every single person they meet. I imagine that they make everyone's day - whether that be the person checking them out at the grocery store or their closest friends. Both Adam and Katherine are so positive that it is absolutely contagious. When you leave their presence, the world suddenly seems like a happier place and I think that is a gift. Here's the deal - this couple adores each other. I mean truly, deeply ADORES one another, without hesitation. I think this is also a gift to witness. Adam and Katherine had a lovely, romantic Saint Paul wedding and the day was absolutely perfect for these two.

A major highlight to everyone in attendance was during the ceremony when Adam surprised his bride - and every family member and friend with a song. It. Was. Stunning. I don't know that there was a dry eye in the church after that moment. The entire day was a true celebration of this couple's love and I know I am not along when I say that I am lucky to know this couple and to see how they love one another. Congratulations to Adam and Katherine on making it official!

LOVEe

When it came to planning a wedding, Alex and Libby wanted a small ceremony followed by a big party with their closest family and friends. This is definitely a trend we are seeing more and more with couples this season. Libby and Alex chose to have an intimate courthouse wedding on a Friday and celebrated at the American Swedish Institute on Saturday. It was simply the perfect late-summer-night, complete with lawn games, drinks, a fabulous crowd - and one gorgeous couple! The day was relaxed and absolutely perfect for Alex and Libby! Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs.!

About 4 years ago, a mutual friend set up Ilyne and Mark on a date. Ever since then these two have been together and a few weeks ago, the couple officially tied the knot! It's easy to see that both Ilyne and Mark are die-hard romantics. Mark proposed on top of a mountain in Aspen and he described having an 'instant connection' with Ilyne when he first met her. One of the things they share in common is their love for Jazz music and when it came time to plan their wedding, they knew they wanted to throw a big party. The couple opted for a private ceremony at Temple of Israel and a full on celebration at the Dakota Jazz Club! I couldn't be happier for these two and their families as they become the new Mr. and Mrs.!

For Mary and Nick's engagement session, we went to the Walker Art Museum, which is super modern and clean. The couple kept this trend alive when planning their wedding, which was at the Guthrie Theater, in the Dowling Studio, which is also known as 'The Yellow Room". It has some of the best views of Minneapolis, along with a very modern edge to it. The couple waited to see one another on their wedding day, until the ceremony! Nick's face was priceless when she walked down the aisle and the rest of the night was a true celebration! Rachelle from Style Architects designed a magical reception space for the event and everything was stunning! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Sweeney!

Billy and Tenzin are a very special couple! They met years ago while shopping for a Halloween costume and the rest is history! In some ways, these two couldn't be more opposite as individuals, but they also compliment one another so so well! Billy is the owner of the AMAZING restaurant Sushi Fix and he is the wild and crazy side. Tenzin is a a nurse and fulfills that caring and loving side of their relationship. I really got to know Billy when we traveled, along with our friend Steph, to Japan to photograph a story all about Japanese whisky! I kept  hearing so many lovely stories about Tenzin and when we came back home, it was shortly after that when I had the privilege of meeting her and was invited to photograph their wedding! Billy's family is from Mongolia and Tenzin's family is from Tibet, so the couple chose to combine modern American and traditional ceremonies for their wedding! The event took place at the Wayzata Country Club and the evening was filled with lots of family, friends and of course - sushi! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs!

From the moment that Andrea and Dan walked into my studio we had an instant connection! However, when I heard the story of how they met, I was so intrigued by their relationship! I wrote a little bit about this in their engagement session post, but Dan and Andrea had known one another their entire lives thru school (she was the hot-girl-in-the-upperclass) and it wasn't until their sibling's wedding that sparks flew. Yes, that's correct - Dan and Andrea's siblings are married, so officially, sisters have married brothers! There were a lot of familiar moments between the Shamp / Pitzl families, but it was especially cool to see the connection and camaraderie that has developed between these families over the years. Dan and Andrea are a solid, fun couple who are always up for an adventure. I just adore these two and know that they will live a very full life. LOVEe

Sue and Kevin are a powerhouse couple. Their energy is contagious and their adoration for one another is inspiring! To say that we had a blast photographing their wedding is an understatement, because I think everyone who was in attendance left feeling excited about all that life has to offer! The two wed on the Majestic Star along the St. Croix River and the day was a true celebration of love.  Friends and family boarded the boat and there was an afternoon full of dancing, lovely moments and all of the fist pumps. I loved everything about this day - it was serious, and sweet, casual and formal. But most of all, it was totally perfect for Sue and Kevin! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs!

I am not even sure where to begin with Ashley and Patrick's wedding, because there are so many wonderful things I could say. The couple was married a couple of weeks ago at the Minneapolis Event Center and the entire event was absolutely stunning! Ashley knew exactly what she wanted for her wedding day and I must say, I left the day feeling like, "That was perfect for them." One of my favorite observations of the day was just how truly excited Patrick was to marry Ashley and JUST how excited Ashley was to marry Patrick. Their energy for the day was a match and even despite rain clouds threatening in the skies all morning, the sunshine came out and stayed out for the Zisko ceremony! Everything from the details to the couple to their incredible families - and one AMAZING wedding band - made for an incredible day! We are so so so happy for Ashley and Patrick! LOVEe

Brittney and Pete's wedding was a day filled with family, tradition and a hell of a lot of fun! The bride wore a soft blush wedding dress that fit in perfectly with her romantic backyard wedding! The couple chose to have a traditional church ceremony and then brought everyone back home to the property where Brittney grew up for the reception! Now, this backyard is nothing small - the property is stunning! Rolling hills, landscaped areas with ponds and forests - it was a gorgeous backdrop for the occasion! Brittney and Pete brought the party with custom cocktails, a kettle corn station, bonfires and even a confetti blast on the dance floor! I couldn't be happier for these two and I absolutely adored their day!

There is so much I love about Jackie and Derek's wedding day. However, as I have been processing their photos, I just love how classic their wedding looks and just how many great moments were captured. A lot of wedding photography we see these days is pretty stylized and posed to give it a more editorial look. I totally do this as well, but I love to take the photojournalism approach to document the day as well - catching expression and moments that will create images that maybe aren't technically perfect, but carry an essence and energy about them. This couple's wedding took place at the Kitchi Gammi Club in Duluth, Minnesota, where the bride's family has some deep roots. The setting alone is pretty timeless and it provided the perfect backdrop for this event! Jackie was a stunning bride and I love that the guys wore classic black tie suits! I chose to show some of my favorite moments from Jackie and Derek's wedding in this post, it was truly such an awesome day!

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Peterson!

Ellie and John's wedding can only be described as a timeless, elegant St. Paul wedding...with a lot of fun! On one hand, the couple chose classic looks - with the groomsmen in black tie and the bride in a stunning dress from L'atelier Couture. On the other hand, there were pops of color and fun - with the bridesmaids all in different colored dresses and yellow sunglasses for the entire party! 317 on Rice Park was the perfect venue for this couple's wedding - with the rich wood and big windows - it complimented the enchanted theme quite perfectly! I first met this couple a few years ago, when Ellie was a guest at Alex + Brian's wedding. Being invited to photograph her own wedding day is truly an honor! We couldn't be happier for John and Ellie on tying the knot and officially becoming Mr. and Mrs. Barragry! LOVEe
