.dan & teresa. St. Paul Wedding Photographer

It is my pleasure to introduce you to my newest fab couple, Dan & Teresa.  It was a beautiful Saturday morning that they celebrated their deep love for each other and their faith at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church.
What a lovely day it turned out to be.  The rain finished early that morning to reveal a beautiful sunny day.   In side the church was a beautiful ceremony.  I'm in awe of Dan and Teresa's commitment to their faith, each other and the community.  Thank you for inspiring me and including me in your special day.  I hope these pictures can invoke the emotions that you felt that day every time you look at them.
Cheers, Love, and Thumbs Up!!! M

.mr. Jobie & one awesome mama.

This is one of my very best friends, Ksenija.  We have know each other for 15 years.  We were placed randomly as roommates on our study abroad program and have been friends ever since.  
Our lives since that time have had many parallels.  For a long time photography and the business occupied many of our talks as Ksen is a fantastic and wildly talented photographer as well (  Boys that turned into husbands added to our many talks among 1000's of other subjects.  Soon after I my baby Ksen called to tell me that we once again were on the same path as she was pregnant!  I was overjoyed that we could have yet another topic that we could bond over!  
I was able to spend a weekend with her and her family recently and it was amazing.  I don't have the words to properly describe how great it was to spend time again in person.  The phone is a must but to have in person chats is the best.  I'm honored to be called her friend and am so thankful she is in my life.  Her heart, wisdom, perspective and love mean the world to me.  
I'm so pumped that she let me take photos of her and Jobie while we were visiting.  Like a lot of photographers, Ksen would prefer to be behind the camera.  She however recognized the value of capturing these moments.  When you watch on a daily bases an infant grow into a baby, and a baby grow into a toddler it is mind blowing how fast they change.  Thank you for trusting me with your baby, dogs and yourself. 
Keep up the good work mama.  You are doing a fantastic job!  All my love, M

.adam & talia. St. Louis Park Wedding Photographer

If you are in need of a pick me up you are in the right place.  The emotion and excitement you are about to lay your eyes on is going to put a little jive in your step.  Adam and Talia share a deep love for each other, their family & friends and their faith.   Mix it all together and you have an explosion of awesomeness.
The whole day took place at Beth El Synagogue and was amazing to witness.  I have never seen that many people celebrate with that much energy for a full day and into the night!  If every wedding was like this everyone would want my job!
Many many cheers to Adam and Talia.  Your honest love and emotion made my heart happy to know you!  All the best, M
