Weddings slow down and family sessions wrap up this time of year because it seems we’re all preparing for the holidays in one way or another. Before we get into snow season, we couldn’t resist sharing a few favorites from this family session Matt photographed in Minneapolis. The golden sunset light kissed this session with a big ole wet smooch and we couldn’t have had a better set of subjects in front of the camera to commemorate. Anne and Drew’s sweet kiddos were a perfect blend of sugar and spice. It’s such a joy to document these moments for loving families like theirs and we hope they enjoy these images for years to come!

Every part of working with them has been so delightful, they are really a wonderful couple. We may sound like a broken record but we truly feel like we have the BEST clients. Holly and Barry were married on a glorious fall day in Brookings, South Dakota. Holly and her ladies got ready at the ceremony site – McCrory Gardens – which is a new-to-us venue (only because this was our first wedding in Brookings) and truly a stunning place. Holly and Barry opted not to see one another pre-ceremony, which built an excitement and anticipation as the couple saw one another for the first time during the ceremony. We love the photos of Barry as he fights back tears as Holly walks down the aisle. It’s a moment many women envision as they plan their weddings and truthfully not a reaction we see all the time (which is *totally* fine 🙂 ) but was super sweet to document none the less. The autumn light shone brightly on them as they exchanged vows and their guests were busting with joy to hug them afterward. The party continued at a private residence barn down the road where Holly and Barry were spoiled with lots of love outpoured by their family and friends. It was a fantastic day – and one we were honored to document. Holly and Barry, you don’t need any luck where you’re headed in life together but we wish you all the love in the world as you navigate your new milestone together. Congratulations!

We’ve got a mix of families here from both Minnesota and New England. Over half of these were shot by Chuck – and we’re loving each and every shot – not that it’s hard to make these sweet kids look good. We love the rich fall colors and grey skies in these photos – many people think they need a full sun shiny day for photos but the overcast fall skies provide a different look that is just as beautiful, if not more so. We anticipate many a holiday card with these photos, and have to figure out a way to get our own family on Chuck’s Mini Session roster next year because I’ll admit we’re a bit jealous! Don’t ever hesitate to reach out to learn more about our Mini Sessions. We don’t market them openly because we have such limited space, but we’re happy to include you on our e-mail announcements if you’re interested in the next round. As always, thank you to these beautiful families to allow us to document their growing families.

From the beginning, they knew they wanted a wedding that was primarily about bringing their loved ones together and how they wanted the focus to be on their community and the people who have brought them to where they are today. What’s more – they did this with a *whole* lot of class and style. Bringing on the talented ladies from Envision Wedding Studio was a no brainer to help execute their event at The District in Sioux Falls, SD. The results of these focus’ was flawless – it truly was a beautiful day where everyone had a BLAST. Cady and Ryan are so well matched for one another – talented, gracious and hearts the size of Texas – I don’t think they stopped smiling the entire wedding day. It’s been our immense pleasure getting to know these two as new friends, and we’re over the moon for them during this exciting time. Congratulations Cady + Ryan!

Katie and Phillip were wed on Phillip’s family’s farm in Western Mass in September and the whole day was incredibly fun. Chuck had the honor of lead shooting this wedding and we love the mix of laid back guest shots, lovey newlywed portraits and the resident chickens. 🙂 Katie and Phillip live in New York, so having the wedding away from the hustle and bustle was a conscious choice by the couple so that everyone could catch some fresh air and enjoy the weekend together. We think it worked beautifully and are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them. Congratulations to Katie and Phillip, and another joy well done by Chuck!

From the darling squishy newborn baby to the older brothers who infused their own personalities into the shoot, we just love that this shoot is a real-life depiction of what life is like in a household full of small children. The C family is no stranger to our lens – they participated in a fall mini session marathon with Chuck in Arlington, MA last fall, so when they contacted us to document their next new chapter we were honored to get them in front of the camera again. Chuck did a fantastic job (as always!) documenting this beautiful family and we hope they enjoy the photos for a long time to come. Congratulations on the beautiful new addition!

summerstreetphotography_0723 summerstreetphotography_0724 summerstreetphotography_0725You guys, this wedding was EPIC. There is really not a better word than this to describe Priya + Rishi’s Minneapolis Wedding weekend. We photographed Friday and Saturday’s festivities, but really they celebrated all week long with their friends and family who flew from all over the WORLD to join them. We also can’t get too far along in this post without mentioning the amazing team of vendors and planners from Sunrise Styling who pulled together Priya and Rishi’s vision for the wedding with an incredible labor of love and the fantastic staff at the Hilton Downtown Minneapolis who hosted with such a high caliber of hospitality. We also have to thank our talented team of second shooters, Mandi and Abby for joining us with their grace and talent behind the camera. Truly, a wedding of this magnitude is not handled with a single photographer or planner – it’s a team effort and one we all enjoyed working on together in the spirit of celebrating this great couple.

Friday morning was a time of traditional family ceremonies with the bride and groom’s respective sides, followed by a lunch buffet and an afternoon of more ceremonies. Friday evening kicked off the festivities formally with a welcome dinner and Mehndi for their guests. Saturday morning the groom’s Barat Parade on the streets of Downtown Minneapolis echoed throughout the streets where Rishi and his friends and family gave any onlookers some serious entertainment with their dancing and celebrating. The main ceremony Saturday morning was a stunning display of flowers and tradition where the couple’s families brought them symbolically together and the officiant incorporated traditional games and passages to formally marry them. The afternoon and evening was a great celebration of photos, amazing food, heart felt toasts and DANCING – did we mention the dancing? Priya and Rishi’s crew brought the party to the dance floor on more than one occasion which made for a great time and fun photos. They continued the celebration with more food and fun on Sunday, but as you can see from this blog post there were more than enough photos with the two days they had us along. This wedding was a blast to document and we are honored to tell their wedding story. Congratulations Priya + Rishi!
