Welcome to the new Rivets and Roses!

I love big announcements! They’re just so much fun! As many of you know, a couple of years ago, I started another wedding photography company called Rivets and Roses. This brand started small, with only one photographer shooting under it at one time and coming into the 2012 season, it was very clear that it was the perfect time to take this to the next level! We’ve had phenomenal success with our photographers in the past and I had big plans for where this studio might go in the future!

When I look back at many of my notes/goals/thoughts from the past couple of years, I always had written down to “Focus on R&R and make that brand what you know it can be!” A few months ago, I was looking through all of those notes-to-myself and I suddenly felt this overwhelming feeling that now was the time to make that happen, we were ready.

So, for the first time ever, I really put it out there that I was hiring. I decided to hire on more photographers to make Rivets and Roses a legitimate, full functioning wedding photography studio for the city of Minneapolis. I wasn’t sure what kind of applicants we might get, but I knew exactly what I wanted in these new shooters. There was a high level of quality I was looking for, as well as passion and drive to be an amazing wedding photographer. Let me tell you that I was AH-MAZED by the people to sent in their applications! I met with many seriously talented people and had some solid conversations during the interviews and I am SO proud to announce the team we have put together for you! 

Each of our new photographers has a very distinct style and personality that is very different from one another! Rivets and Roses is a wedding photography studio where couples are meant to come and browse around the website. It’s designed for potential brides and grooms to wander around and really find a photographer who inspires them, both thru their work and personality. The benefit of booking with R&R is simply the fact that it’s the sister company to my wedding brand, Photogen Inc. and the same quality of service and product will be given to every single one of our clients! We will most definitely take care of you!

So, go on! Take a peek! Browse through our super-cool site, and learn about all of our new shooters! Louisa, Leslie, Natalie, Marc and Desiree are all helping me host FOUND // The Art of Wedding event on Friday, January 20th! If you want to meet them, please stop on by and say hello! We would love to see you!
