About us

Read More

We are a husband and wife team currently based out of Minneapolis, MN. We love fun adventures, traveling to new places, meeting people and learning about their unique experiences, which is a big part of why we love photography!

Erica & Neil met at Whitewater State Park while Erica was on a camping trip with her family, and Neil had a summer internship at Whitewater. So yes, Neil met and spent time with Erica's entire family the weekend they met each other! It was a bit embarrassing for a recent college grad girl! Their first date after that weekend was at a place called the Wow Zone where Erica beat Neil pretty badly in bowling and laser tag, and then Neil returned the favor playing mini-golf! That fall, they made a few trips back to Whitewater and fell in love among the beautiful bluffs, trails, and scenery. About a year later, Neil proposed at Whitewater on a camping trip and they could only think of one gorgeous place to get to married - Whitewater State Park!

Photography has always been a love of mine, and one of my favorite parts of photographing people is capturing true emotions and feelings. I love it when clients can look at a picture from 10 years ago, and still feel the same emotions from that day through the photograph!

My style of photography is using natural light in scenic outdoor and indoor settings. I love getting to know people to capture their personality as they follow their dreams - whether that is marrying their best friend, venturing on from high school, or starting a family.
