minneapolis engagement photographer
I laugh a lot with my job. I get to photograph awesome people who make me giggle consistently. But these two, they made me laugh so much that I developed a twitch in my cheek and got an ab workout during our session and I love them so much for it!! They are comfortable in their skin and even more comfortable in each other's arms - and it makes my job incredibly enjoyable. I'm counting down the days until I can have Ashley & Dakotah in front of my camera again on their wedding day... May of 2018 can't come soon enough!!
When my husband and I got married almost 5 years ago, we moved to Minneapolis into the most charming four-unit apartment building by Lake Nokomis. In the craziness of our moving in, amid boxes everywhere and wet paint on the walls, the sweetest girl with an equally sweet (freshly-made) loaf of banana bread knocked on our door to extend a welcome to the building. Her bright smile alongside the cutest neighborly gesture is something I've always been grateful for, and Mandy immediately made my hubby and I feel even more excited about moving to the "Big City". Since then, we had the pleasure of getting to know her and her fiance John - together they make one of the kindest and most adventurous couples I know. They have since moved to North Dakota and I couldn't be more thrilled that I get to travel to the U.S./Canadian border this fall for what is sure to be one of the most welcoming and fun weddings I've ever photographed! Their day can't come soon enough - but until then, check out how sweet these two are; especially making music together. Some of my favorite images I've ever taken!! :)
If you are: super chill, awesomely stylish, and love to giggle your hearts out - you might be my perfect client. Enter these two cuties who fit that bill perfectly!! It was a stunning evening in this beautiful city of ours with the most incredible golden light flooding the streets of St. Anthony Main. Lindsey & Tad flirted the night away and their superstar pup, Leopold, added an extra dash of charm that took the cuteness level of their session off the charts. Now to wait until I can photograph them again on their NYE wedding day... 😍
Getting to work with siblings of past couples is one of the most amazing feelings that comes with this job of mine. It is so incredibly awesome to get to know another couple within a family that you've already connected with, and knowing that I get to look forward to seeing some of my favorite past faces (ahem, here's looking at you Bridget & Eric) gets me seriously giddy! Lauren and Tom are the best of the best kind of people, and you can't help but be happy when you're around them. One day I received an email with the opening line that stated: "Ok Krista I think you are going to LOVE ME right now!!!!" and Lauren proceeds to let me know that she's convinced her favorite local brewery to let us in on a day that they are closed so that we can take their engagement photos without anyone around.... at that moment, I not only knew I had hit the client jackpot, but that I was the luckiest photographer around. Their wedding day cannot come soon enough - I can't WAIT to watch their day unfold and be surrounded by their joy!!
I truly couldn't have asked for a more beautiful night with this sweet couple!! That golden light makes me swoon -- add in one of my favorite locations and a stunning couple and I am totally in love!! Luckily, I don't have to wait too long to photograph these two again because their wedding is less than TWO weeks!! For now, you'll have to be content with seeing Erica in this gorgeous white dress until the real one comes into play!! :)
