Putting together a styled wedding photoshoot is sort of like creating a painting. The first thing you see is a blank white canvas. You plot and plan – forming ideas, letting your imagination run wild with thoughts of what the painting could be, what you want it to look like, the “message” you are trying to convey. You start mixing up the colors – talking to people and finding others who subscribe to your vision, have aspects of their own vision to contribute, and offer amazing thoughts that make your ideas even stronger than before. Then finally, the day arrives to create your masterpiece. You apply the paint to the canvas – your partners contribute their amazing talents to the photoshoot, and you see your dream realized right in front of your eyes.
That’s exactly how it felt to work with this amazing team of people crafting our beautiful winter styled wedding photoshoot at the Landmark Center in St Paul, MN, as well as a gorgeous Summit Avenue mansion. It went off without a hitch and was as amazing in real life as I could have possibly imagined it to be. Thank you again so much everyone for contributing your exceptional talents! I’ve truly enjoyed participating as a Minneapolis wedding photographer.
