It’s really funny how lives intersect. There was probably no way my life would’ve intersected with Emily and Grant’s without so many other things happening years ago. When we decided to remodel our new home (which is a story for another day) we hired a couple designers to help (which is a story for another day). A few years after getting this design help, I photographed a space (Yoga Sol) for Kristin, one of the designers who helped at our home and helped design Yoga Sol. We needed a model for a few of those photos and turns out, Emily was that model. Shortly after our shoot for Yoga Sol, she reached out and mentioned she was engaged and looking for a photographer. One thing led to another and now I have the privilege of being their photographer. Connections really are key to most work I get. I don’t advertise. I put all of myself into my photography and I hope people see and feel this and then tell others. I’m so thankful for the relationships and time that went into bringing Emily and Grant across my path and I hope you see your part in all this as well. I cannot. I repeat, CANNOT do this without you. Your voice. Your response to the photographs I leave behind. It’s a humbling and joy-filled partnership. Thank You.
OK, here are a bunch of my favs from our time wandering around a park in Minneapolis. We were on the hunt for a budding fruit tree towards the end of the evening, but alas…it didn’t work out. BUT, there are a handful of photos from some random hill, with the last few frames on a roll of film, that I absolutely love and feel really shows their hearts towards one another that night. It always works out in the end.
