MN Landscape Arboretum Engagement Photos | Sam + Bryan

Being that my one of my first photography loves was landscape photography, I was always looking forward to the day that someone wanted me to photograph their portraits in the beautiful scenery of the MN Landscape Arboretum. My dream was realized last fall with Sam + Bryan’s engagement photos! The biggest challenge of that location is being able to narrow down the areas you want to work in, as there are acres upon acres of spectacular settings. We ended up spending a couple of hours, and I could have easily spent a couple more, except for the fact that Sam + Bryan had reached their modeling limit for the day! lol

Sam + Bryan – I wish you a lifetime of happiness, smiles, laughter and love together. Best of luck on your big day!

Minneapolis Infrared Wedding Photography

Today I’d like to highlight something that I’ve been doing for awhile now but haven’t talked about too much on my website. I offer something special to my clients that is really fun and unique – infrared photography. What is that, you say? Infrared is a special type of photography, taken with a special camera that is altered to be sensitive to only the infrared wavelengths of light. In layman’s terms, it means that the images you see are altered color-wise. When you are using infrared photography in natural scenes with a lot of greenery – in grass, plants and trees – the green shows up as white, giving it a dreamy, storybook, otherworldly feeling. The way I process them is to turn them into black and white photos, but the white grass, plants and trees really makes them pop out and feel unique and special. My clients gasp at the sight of them – they are amazing! Once we turn them into a canvas, metal print or framed art, they are truly a sight to behold! I am including a few examples of some favorites of mine from the 2014 wedding and engagement season.

If you would like to work together with me in a natural setting for your wedding or engagement photos, I would love to take some infrared photos of you!

Lebanon Hills Eagan MN Engagement Photos | Deb + Bryan

After spending just a couple of hours with Deb and Bryan this past fall on their engagement photos, my cheeks were sore from so much laughing. They are the cutest couple, full of non-stop jokes, wit and one-liners – definitely my kind of people!

We spent a beautiful mid-fall afternoon at Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Eagan, MN, surrounded by beautiful light, spectacular beauty and an amazing natural environment. Even though we were nearing the end of peak fall color, we still had some gorgeous golds and oranges as well as tall grasses left to warm our images. We were even able to sneak in some images highlighting the dueling Michigan/Michigan State football rivalry in their household, evidenced by the last few photos of their session. And we lucked out with perfect weather on top of it all!

Deb and Bryan, I am so happy for you both and so excited for your upcoming wedding day – I can’t wait! Oh, and I have big expectations for your cake too! ;^)
