Hop to it...get ready...only a few days away...
Your family, friends and neighbors are "Cheering" you on to be ready for the Holidays. At this time of year I put the Holiday music on, light the tree do some baking and get my shopping done. I love to see the holiday hustle and bustle of all of you out doing your own thing. I love meeting with our very important clients from the past and coming future either while shopping, dining out or even in our festive studio or meeting room. You see, all of you are very important to us and we want to thank you for your continued support for the past year, and want to "cheer" you onto to getting that family portrait done this season (if all are home now) or next summer/fall. We are looking forward to photographing that High School Senior for 2010 sometime this next summer or early fall. And don't forget that all important date-the wedding of your friend, relative or neighbor...keep us in mind!

This fine young lady was a competitior this past Saturday at a Karate Tournament. She was one of many who ended up with awards to be proud of. Many of the children and young adults that were competetors should be proud of themself with or without awards. To watch them compete was just amazing with the way they carried themselves, acted amoungst others, treated others, and to just be out in the middle of an arena in front of many spectators was something these competetors should be proud of. We enjoy photograping these competetors. If you would like to see some action shots, go to our web site and click on the blue Gallery button. The password is karate (all lower case letters). Enjoy.

Havin Fun

These girls were just "hangin out" at our last family session (on location). They were fun to photograph together, as sisters. You see, at a family session, we will also incorporate images of just the kids together, parents together, parent with child(ren), as everyone of the images we create for the family mean something special-as special as a large group photo is. We typically spend an hour or more with a family creating different images to choose from. We are NOT your "quick studio" where a background is pulled down, and you're out of the studio in 15 minutes. We want to become your friend, and not just another "number" in the phone book that can get your photo done, printed out in minutes and out the door you go. We take pride in our work, and take the time to create something special for you and your family. Call us when you're ready to become our "friend". 763-295-2727. We'll take time to create "Magic" for you and your family!

Strong Hearts

Been there, done that. This young couple will be separated for months. When we got married, we were separated by the service-seeing each other only 3 months out of the first 2 years we were married. We did not have email, cell phones and the convenience of keeping in touch...only with "love letters", and then they would come in batches of 5 after a whole 2 weeks. This couple were married only an hour after having their session completed by us at the studio. They will have a wonderful life keeping in touch with other via the internet, and cell phone. We wish them a wonderful life together and apart. We appreciate the young men and women of our country.

Special Events Bring Family Together

We had the pleasure of photographing this family celebrating a 25th Anniversary at a local establishment. It was a surprise gathering of not only a family portrait but for a Special Day. We had a great time with this group. We also did individual groups for this family. It is not too late to get that family portrait for you. Contact us at 763-295-2727 when your family will be gathering. I know that when all of my family is home for the holidays, we will be creating that special portrait as we do every year. We will even photograph during the holidays for you.

Bring that smile with your family.

Daddy's Little Girl

How many of you girls/females have your Daddy wrapped around your little finger? It's no wonder this little girl does, with cuddles and kisses, what Daddy wouldn't enjoy those moments? I am fortunate enough to be able to stop by and see my Daddy (and Mommy) to give them a little hug and kiss. They both are still with us on this earth and only live 5 minutes away. There are days that go by, due to our busy schedule, that I don't take an extra few minutes to stop or even make a phone call...then I get "the call" from my Daddy! Take that extra moment to call someone you love, stop by and give that special person a hug or kiss...tell them how special they are to you. You know, you're as special to them! Get that photo of that special someone with you. Call us at 763-295-2727, we'd be happy to accomodate!

Those Goldens Days are gone...

You have to admit, the Fall season was beautiful with its colors that Mother Nature supplied us for the season. I hate to admit it, but I think those days are gone by the wayside. The trees are bare, the air is cold, the s_ _ _ is just around the corner. (by the way, the next letter to go in the next line next to the s is n!) Even if the weather is cold, we are still accomodating our family portraiture in the studio. We will be photographing into the December holidays as that is when family is home to visit. This weekend we will be photographing a family for a 25th Anniversary on location. What a great gift to present to family-togetherness and a portrait to go with it. We do go on location with lighting and equipment to capture that image for you. Call us to schedule that session. Have a great day...I have many meetings to get to, as well as meet with great guests at our studio putting their orders in before the holidays.

Family Portraiture

Our style of Family Portraiture can be most anything you wish....cute huh?

Christmas orders are coming in. If you are a client of ours and want to consider images for gift giving for the Holidays, call us and we can chat. Even if that image was created early in the year! We keep all of your images on file for you, you won't have to do the leg work and "look for a negative", just call us and we can discuss the image you want. Just that easy!!!

Yesterday I ran into a parent of one of our High School Seniors we had photographed this past fall. That parent was so happy she came to us as we put their child to ease. I remember the young lady. She was very quiet, shy and timid, but by the end of the session---we were having fun. I really like hearing that from parents, even months later. Remember, we can create fun and excitment in you us at 763-295-2727.

Kids are so Fun!

Today we finished up with another PreSchool, after 3 days. A lot of children, all with their own personalities. It was fun to see each child come in, either shy, excited, scared, timid or just a mind of their own...but I believe the parents will be happy with the image we created for them of their child. We have never had a parent not excited with the image due to the way we can get each child involved with the may take a while for some of the kids, but we "get 'r done". On that note, I have located another PreSchool that just opened up (a month ago) and will go visit with them regarding images of the children. The question will come up, "do you have references" or "testimonials"? and I know all of the PreSchools we have worked with will give great raving references as they like our style and how we can work with the kids....

Have yourself a great evening/day. I just got GREAT news that both of my boys (and their wives) will be home for the holidays----I am sooooo.... excited!!!! We will have a house full of fun with all of our children (3) and their spouses and our grandchildren. Those days will begin on December 19 and continue through the end of the year.

Keep Smiling!!! I AM!

Then comes Baby in the Baby Carriage....

Remember that rhyme?....Bride and Groom sitting in the tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g...first comes love, then come marriage, Yep, that's what happens and we love being a part of your family throughout ALL of your married life. Today we were photographing another PreSchool in which we came accross a child from a couple we photographed years ago at their wedding. I can only hope that they will contact us (as they have) for additional "magical moments" of their growing family and lives. Who knows, we may do the Graduation session, hummmm, say in 11 years? Then maybe the wedding?

The image of this little ones toes with the rings says it all. Again, as I said, then comes baby in the baby carriage. We want to be a part of your life. Call us, we love emotion and having fun.

Be back another day...

Keep Smiling

So...........few days left!!!

Truly a beautiful location for this family. The lady of the household had been eying this area for a while and absolutely had to have their family session at this spot. I can't blame her, it was a great location for a family session---not to say as well a beautiful day!!!

Hope you had/have a safe Holiday Happy Halloween weekend. We will stay busy with photographic work as well as the Garage cleaning....need to arrange things for the upcoming season.

Have a awsome weekend!!!

Waiting for the Moment...

The day is not only for the Bride and the anticipation, it also belongs to the Groom. Here the Groom is waiting for the moment that his beautiful Bride shows up to see him for the first time with her gown on and she sees him in his Tux....a precious moment. We capture those moments for you throughout the day.

Still some great days to get out for photographing your family. We have early day appointments available yet. Call us!! We will be out on location this afternoon photographing those families that want their portraits created for them at various local parks. That is only the beginning...we then do the post production prior to you viewing them to make your choices for those Holiday gifts. Once you have placed your order, they will be professionally printed and delivered to our studio for you to pick up in ample time.

Have a Fun day...don't forget tomorrow evening will be a busy night for those Trick 'n Treaters. Be careful if you are out and about. Watch for the little excited children running around!!!

Keep Smiling

Our Bride and Groom had fun at this location. As most guys, they don't like to have their picture taken, but with a little coaxing and having a little fun, pretty soon they get into it. We have even had a Groom tell us "I had more fun with you guys photographing us than I did at the reception."

Of course, had they kept us with them into the reception, he may have changed his mind---our Brides and Grooms have fun with us when we are with them. Call us for your wedding plans, we may have your wedding date available.....keep in mind, we DO destination weddings as well. That is one of the reasons we also have a travel site---not only for us, but for you and your loved ones as well. Big savings!!! Check out our Travel site when planning your Destination Wedding, or Honeymoon, or for getting your loved ones to your Special Wedding Day.

Preschool Kids

Yep, still busy with the little preschoolers. We will finish with them the first week of November. This way all the orders will be in for parents to share with loved ones for the Holidays. This little girl just happen to be one of the little ones that we photographed. They all are so cute with their attitudes and smiles.

This week sounds like it still will be nice for family portraits outdoors, although late in the afternoon. Our evenings are dark already by 5:30pm. Hope the days continue to stay decent. We have more families to photograph. They are doing this to have holiday photos as well. If you are still interested, we may get you in the earlier part of the day. Don't hesitate to call us!

I'm Off to go Get Married!

This Bride had a beautiful day for her wedding. It was an outdoor wedding with lots of beautiful flowers, trees and natural growth along Lake Minnetonka. We had such a great time photographing the Bride and Groom as there were so many wonderful places to photograph at! We like to roam around to capture the beauty, rather than stay in one spot when outdoors. In the case of this image, it makes me think that she is saying, "ok, photos are over, I'm off the get married to the man of my dreams. See ya!" But that is not the end of our photographing. We capture LOTS of fun, candids, laughing, love, whatever may it is because we always have 2 photographers at your wedding to capture the important things of the day. We want to show you a story of your day to cherish forever. We capture those "Magic Moments".

Keep Smiling

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Seniors Yet???

Yep, this is another of our very entertaining guy that we had photographed. He will go far. He has that attitude that "nothing will stop him". A gem of a guy...and you know what, I believe he will go far.

We are still getting those senior need it?, we can do it!!! Just had another person call today. We had photographed his sister a couple of years ago, I think he will be just as fun as she was.

Hey, have you started thinking about a Winter (yuck, I hate that word!) vacation? Don't forget to check out our TRAVEL button when thinking of your upcoming travels. A couple of months ago, we had to rent a car for a week. We saved OVER $200.00 versus going directly to those "car rental" places. Save some money. Use our Travel site. Many people have and they have had great results!

Chat later.

Another Happy Bride & Groom

We love to have happy Brides and Grooms. We love to photograph weddings. We love to have fun when we are photographing and I think our Brides and Grooms can see that. This Bride just picked up her images to see for the first time in a book, and left very happy. They were a great couple to work with. Looking forward to working with them in the future!!! Talk about future, call us for your wedding plans. 2009 is booking although there are many dates available to choose from yet. It would be great to hear from you soon and get everything handled before it is too late and the date is no longer available.

Have a great day....


Thursday, October 16, 2008

We'll go anywhere!!

Wherever you plan to hold your wedding ceremony and/or reception...we'll be there. Just call us. This was the setting prior to a wedding ceremony before any guests showed up. Isn't it beautiful? This weekend we will be out of town, leaving tomorrow for a wedding. We will be back on Sunday, so I might not get to chat with you til Monday. It looks as if the weather will be great.

Are you enjoying the beautiful Fall colors? I know we are, as well as our clients that we are able to capture during these beautiful days. There won't be many days like this left. I only have next Wednesday evening available for a Family soon, it may book before you call?!!!

Have a great one.

Again, Happy B-Day

I can't believe that it's been 5 days since my last visit with you. Life has been hectic and busy. Today we are off to another PreSchool to capture those cute little ones with their smiles. Yesterday we were at a preschool photographing little ones as well. Our first little girl came running in and hugged both of us. We have never seen her before in our life. She made our day!

Talk about making our day...many years ago, our second child was born to us. He lives in Florida. We called him first thing this morning to wish him a happy B-Day. Do you think he is at home today sitting in the living room eating cake like this little one? I love it when little ones really get into the fresh cake we provide for our 1 year olds being photographed in our studio. I always prepare mommy for the mess she will get to clean up, but they love it.

Happy B-Day to all of you whenever it is your day!!!!

Happy B-Day to my Hubby

Yes, today is the hubby's birthday. Yes, we even worked on his B-Day. I have, however, been requested NOT to book anything on 10/10/10...2 years from today!

This young lady came into our studio for her senior session----we have only a few days to get the last of this coming year graduates images in for the year book. We still have them coming in!!!!

She was a fun-relaxed person to work with.

Today we photographed a School-as well as yesterday. Busy, busy, busy. Tomorrow we will be photographing a wedding. Sounds as if the weather will be beautiful for our Bride and Groom.

Have a great soon.


Thursday, October 9, 2008

Why are you here...I dunno, why are you here?

Little kids are amazing, aren't they? The look on this little boys face tells it all. He's just not used to seeing his little friend all dolled (dressed up). They are used to seeing each other in the sandbox, playing with toys. Well, I know why WE are here and capture the story of the day as it unfolds. Weddings are a day that you will want to cherish forever, and we are there to capture those "magic moments" for you. We had a Bridal Fair this past Saturday, which has already been benificial for one of those of you that attended. For the rest of you, don't delay, please call to schedule your Wedding Day photography with us, as we have more Bridal Fairs coming up, and your Date may not be available.

Today we are off to another PreSchool (as well as Friday), hope all the little ones brought their smiles.

You Keep Smiling

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

Been lookin' for me?

Yes, well I have too. Been a very busy last couple of weeks. Haven't gotten on to chat with you for a I feel bad?, you bet...

PreSchools are upon us now. Isn't she a cutie? Choosing the best one for print can be a challenge as we get so many cute looks from these precious little kids.

Last weekend we not only had a wedding (What a beautiful day!!!), but then my hubby and I split up to go different ways to work at Expos. I had the pleasure of working at a Bridal Expo, and meeting a lot of new Brides and Grooms to be. Hope to hear from you soon. You can take our Bridal Show Special and put it to use for your wedding if you call me within this month. I would love to chat with you about your wedding plans as we discussed at the Bridal Show.

Have a great day. Hope to chat within a day or so!

Oh, by the way, I only have 2 evenings available before the month of October is over for your family session. Hurry, call 763-295-2727.

Keep Smiling

Holiday Gifts?

Yes, what a better gift than an image of yourself to your Loved ones? This woman called us to request an image of her and her hubby. We created what she wanted and she has already ordered her gifts for family members. I know it's only September, but before you know'll wish you had done something earlier. We have got some beautiful colors coming with the leaves changing color, we still have a few evenings open for that image of your family. Unfortunately we have to reschedule due to Mother Nature (due to rain), but it will get done! Call us for our special! 763-295-2727.

Love Doves

White Doves almost always seem to respresent Love in a persons mind. You see them at many weddings and to capture them before flight is always fun. We love to be right there where the action is. We always have two photographers at a wedding to capture these moments. That is why we are called Magic "Moments" Photography....give us a call for your wedding coming up...We believe you will be impressed.


Monday, September 22, 2008

Whew...'bout time!

These two little ones were fun to work with in the wedding. The Bride and Groom are "finally" at the alter, and the Ring Bearer and Flower Girl got to sit in their special chairs provided to them during the wedding ceremony. They were so cooperative throughout the whole day. I thought it was very thoughtful of the Bride and Groom to have little chairs ready for the kids to sit in (rather than run around during the ceremony).

Another beautiful weekend. Happy Fall! Today at 10:44 am our summer turned into Fall. Watch for the beautiful colors. They will be upon us soon. This is the perfect time to get that Family Portrait scheduled.

Have a great evening. I'm going to go enjoy watching my Grandson this evening at the Coronation as he was choosen to be Junior Royalty. What an honor.


Friday, September 19, 2008


Yes, family...again I speak of the family portrait. Call us, days are limited.

What is your family doing this weekend? Are you gonna relax and enjoy the

beautiful sunny days we are supposed to have? Go out and take a walk, or a

bike ride. I know everyone feels that they should clean the garage and get

the yard ready for the end of season....ya just have to take a break sometimes.

I hope we will! In otherwords, I should practice what I preach?


Thursday, September 18, 2008

Off They Go.....

Onto their married life....although that doesn't mean that will be the last we see of the Bride and Groom. We feel that we have become friends and will be their photographer for life as their family grows and that they will recommend our services to friends and family members.

What beautiful days we are having. If you are thinking of that Family portrait that "should" be done in the future...don't wait too long. Please, I can't express enough how important that image will be for you. Just yesterday, we had that "call". An image was created and unexpectedly a person in that image passed away. I can't tell you how happy they were to know that we were able to capture a most recent image for them. Our number is 763-295-2727.

Have a great day!


Tuesday, September 16, 2008

Love, Isn't it Grand?

Yes, with this couple, you can see that LOVE is Grand. Photographing couples as well as individuals in the wedding party is fun. The weekends are busy for us with weddings thru-out the fall season into November. Dates are booking up for 2009, call us so we can create beautiful images for you to cherish for life.
On another note, yesterday was a busy work day for us until the evening when our daughter and her family surprised us with their presence. We enjoyed our evening with them which in turn gave us a break from working. Always take a break for yourself and family!
Keep Smiling

Monday, September 15, 2008


The busy days are done with getting ready for the Big day. Again, this is our Bride from this past weekend...the lighting on her is elegant-while she waits for her man. Again, as we are photographing our Brides and Grooms, we will photograph images you request as well as images we see will be beautiful in your album. We are open.

Speak of anticipation, today is our 35th anniversary-I can't wait to spend it with my hubby. Will we work? or not? Whatever we do, we have fun when we find the time.

Have a great day!


Friday, September 12, 2008


The busy days are behind this Bride in preparing for her big day. Now the Special Day is with her. She in so wanting to be married to the Love of her life. They have planned and worked so hard to make this a beautiful day for them and the ones they love to enjoy as well.

We want to be a part of the planning. We have many vendors we work with that can be of assistance to you when you are looking for that right DJ or Florist, etc. Call us at 763-295-2727. Let's get that wedding date booked for 2009. Have a great day.


Thursday, September 11, 2008


Would you dare say, what a beautiful sight? She is such a beautiful, fun loving Bride and just excited to see him for the first time for their Special Day. She is a bubbly, giggling, excited Bride sneaking up on him. Wait till he sees her! Wow will be his reaction-can you blame him? I can't explain how fun they were to chat with before their wedding day.

Today we have again a busy schedule, but always have time to chat with you. Please call us with any questions regarding your photography needs. Our number is 763-295-2727.

Pray for those lost today 7 years ago...911-do you remember where and what you were doing?

Until next time-have a safe and beautiful day.


Wednesday, September 10, 2008


Wow, this image of the two of them (Bride & Groom) so close and so in love....what do ya think? I love weddings as there is so much love in the air. They were a wonderful couple to photograph and fun to be with for the day. Thankfully it was a great day for an outdoor wedding. Weather your wedding is indoors, outdoors, on location or destination, call us. We would love to chat with you regarding your needs and wants for your Special Day. We want to share to day with you and show the world your "love".

Chat Later


Monday, September 8, 2008

Who's having more fun?

The image here portrays the Bride "enjoying" her kiss from these two young guys. I don't know if the guys would normally have done this, but we asked-and they worked with us. The day this past Saturday was beautiful. Everything went well for the Bride and rain until the wedding was over and we were headed out. We had a great and fun day with the Bride and Groom and wish them well.

Yesterday was a fun day with family at the ole Twins game-even if we lost. It was in celebration of my fathers birthday.

Today I'm off to another seminar. Todays seminar is about weddings. Should be fun. I love learning new things and product for you our friends.

Take care, chat soon.


Saturday, September 6, 2008

Gonna Keep this Short...

Gotta get ready for a wedding. We will be packing our gear and photographing another beautiful Bride and Groom. When I spoke with her the other day, finalizing details of the day, she seemed soooo... relaxed! I will have an image up for you next week.

Tomorrow is "play" day as we are headed to the Twins game with my brothers and sisters and in-laws as well as my parents. Watch for us as we hope we get the "Circle me Bert". Should have about 25 people in our group. That's small for our family of 50 plus, but some of the relatives couldn't make it.

Oh, by the way, our young beautiful woman of yesterday did make it to the hospital and had her baby in 27 minutes. She WAS desperate in getting that image we created for her completed! She had a beautiful healthy boy and both are doing well.

Take care and have a great weekend!


Friday, September 5, 2008

Hope She Made It in Time

The images of this beautiful woman were created right before she went to the hospital. While photographing her, she kept having contractions every 3-5 minutes. We were, of course, nervous and so was she...she even had the vehicle ready, keys in the ignition. We kept asking her if she was ok...her comment, "I just want to get this done". As you can see, this was VERY important to her as this was to be her last baby (has 2 already). She has always wanted to do this, but never found the time. As I walked her out the door, I asked if she was going home, she said she was not, she was on the way to the hospital........

Keep Smiling and pray for her and her new baby!

Thursday, September 4, 2008


Yes, shame on me. I left you last Thursday, and here I am a week later! To let you know, there was no internet service up where we were...not even the phone (cell) service was acceptable. I will say it was nice though to just kick back and relax. We returned Tuesday (to avoid the traffic rush) to a long list of things to get completed since we were gone a day longer than planned. Wednesday was a busy day with new clients for future business. Today was just as busy...

The image here reminds me and it should you that it IS time for that family portrait before the snow flies. It is a great time to capture your family portrait which then gives you time to choose images you want to share at the holidays as gifts or even as your Holiday card??? Think about it, but not too long. Our schedule is getting full.

Hope to chat soon!!!!

Keep Smiling

P.S. Please help me wish my good friend from Mound and her hubby a Happy Anniversary!!!

Thursday, August 28, 2008

Think I forgot?

Well, no. I just got carried away with the busy schedule again today. I dropped my grandsons off early today only to start my day with a Bride stopping by to put her order in from her wedding day. Now, we get to design her album since she has chosen the images she wants in her album. Her sister joined her in this process giving some suggestions to the Bride for images in her album. It was fun to see them work together. As they left, the sister said, "you'll have 3 weddings for sure in the next years". What an uplift to know that the family was happy with our work as well.
The image attached is just a special effect that had been created. Cute little girl---but busy body!!!!

The day continued with business. It was a great day. We thought we would leave today to go up North, but too much to catch up on. We want our clients happy, so thought we would get another day in with orders to submit...only to get them delivered to all of you, rather than make you wait. We will go off and enjoy the weekend with family and friends on Friday. If, and that is "IF" I can get internet access, I will keep you updated of our fun weekend planned. Take care.


Wednesday, August 27, 2008


Busy day from the start today. My grandsons were delivered to us early in the day so that we can play with them and just hang out as grandparents. Just taking a moment to say hi and let you know that I will be back tomorrow. We are taking the day off for them and will get right back into the swing of things (photographically) on Thursday only to take off for the weekend to be with friends and family. Take care. Oh, take time out of YOUR schedule to be with those you love.

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

And here's Mr & Mrs B

Yep, they are now married. The day was just beautiful. If you remember Thursday and Friday being very windy-Saturday had just a slight breeze which made for a gorgeous day for everyone in attendance at the wedding which was outdoors. This is just a teaser for the Bride and Groom as they will not get all their images for a bit. All went well throughout the day. We had met them more than a year ago, and through all the chats feel as if we really have gotten to know them very well. We wish them the best of luck and lots of joy. May all their Moments be Magic.


Saturday, August 23, 2008

Our couple today

Today we will have the pleasure of being with this couple for an outdoor wedding. What a beautiful day it will be. The weather will be cooperative for us which makes for a great day with such a beautiful couple. They love the outdoors. They were so much fun photographing on the day of the engagement session (last year) we are looking forward to as much fun today.

Have a great day....gotta get things packed a ready for a fun-filled day.

Chat later


Friday, August 22, 2008


This is a collection of images that we created for a mother of her child this summer playing T-ball. Something extra we offer to parents other than the normal individual and team photo. We also have a new product which is a "cut-out" of the individual in action. It's awsome.

That is what is fun about this business...always trying to come up with something new and different to peak your (the clients) interest. That is why we are always reading, going to seminars or training and working with the vendors we trust...we want YOU happy.

Call for any needs..senior session dates are closing up, I think we only have a couple of early morning appointments available. The evenings are booked up. Then we really get busy with the family sessions. Those are usally only evenings because of the work hours of the parents. But then again, there are only a few good evenings available. Then of course, all of our Saturdays are booked with weddings through October. Sunday, is a day for us....our family. Remember how important family is to me?

This woman (new Bride) supports her man. Isn't this cute? Her hubby is a handsome man of at least 6 foot 3 inches and she is a beautiful little 5 foot something. The two of them will support each other thru thick and thin in lifes every challange.

Support is important. We have the support of all of the labs we work with in getting the right product for you. Our vendors work carefully with us to keep up with the latest product. We want you happy with the end product. We guarantee our product with the support of all our vendors. We don't work with vendors "here one day-gone the next". Our clients are important to us, you (our clients) support our business by sending others to us, because you're happy with the end result. Support goes all around.

Have a happy day! Go out and enjoy the State Fair!

Dreamy Love

It's all about Love, Feelings, Tenderness, Caring. Can't you just see that in this image? I love to bring this out in the couples that are photographed. I get anxious for the next weekend to photograph our next Bride and Groom...waiting for that moment to capture for them. We are always ready with camera in hand, anticipating their every well as whatever else is going on around the Bride and Groom.

Last nite I attended a meeting in which vendors shared ideas and suggestions to make your special day STRESS FREE. Call us, we can do just that...we'll have FUN. Next year (2009) is booking up rapidly. Hurry!!! Call us at 763-295-2727. I already have couples interested in the same dates, and remember, we can only photograph ONE wedding event a day. Don't wait until it's too late!!!

Does this make you wonder?

What is going on here? This makes me ask the question. All I know is that all of a sudden, everyone was laughing...yes, even the Bride. But again, a professional photographer would be ready with the camera in hand, and capture the "moment". Weddings are an event in which we are ready with camera in hand, ready for anything that needs to be captured!!!! That, again is the beauty of two (2) photographers at your event, your special day. Please, don't be another Bride and Groom who go to the "amateur ", so called "professional photographer" who thinks they are the person that should photograph your wedding....they will only get snap-shots every now and then and not know lighting and posing and give you a CD after your wedding because they don't have a professional printing lab to get your images preserved on professional photographic paper for years to cherish. Your special day is too important to let that happen. I have had many Brides and Grooms come to me asking if we can help them get the images printed professionally after the "amateur" has captured images that truly canNOT be printed without a LOT of work to correct that what you want?

May all your Moments be Magic

Good Day!

Hello there! Hope you all had a great weekend. We did. As I mentioned in my last blog, we had family time on Saturday. I "scheduled" that into my calandar a while ago to set time away for family as family (as mentioned many times) is important. As I talk about family, did you happen to read the Minneapolis Sunday paper? In the Twin Cities section-front page- was an article showing a woman walking out of her ruined home with a "FAMILY PORTRAIT" as it happened to be one of her prized possessions. She could have taken from her home other important items, but I thought it was amazing to see an image in the paper showing a person saving her most important item to save. What does that say to you? Think about it, do you have a family portrait that means so much to you that if you had a fire, or flood - what would you take first? I know that I would grab my images from the wall (3 special ones) as I know they would be very hard to reproduce. It is family portrait time....a great time to get that portrait done so that you have the time to get images for others as holiday gifts. Get those family portrait sessions booked before the end of October.

Welp, gotta go get ready for the first High School senior of the day...yes, I know, I said it is family portrait time but we gotta get finished up with those High School Seniors before school starts so that they have the image for the year book...still time for that, although I only have a couple of open sessions for that at this time...Call us at 763-295-2727.

Oh this is an image of our Bride and Groom last weekend...cute huh? Love the hat!!!!

Family Time!

Hi, just a quick note: We are off to enjoy some family time today (no wedding) as my brother invited all of us---approximately 40 people to come up and enjoy the day with family with a cook out and just hanging together. What a perfect time to get another updated family photo, huh? Keep that in mind the next time you get together with your family-it is so precious.
What? No image today? Nope, catch ya later.

Our Alaska Bridal Couple

The gentleman here (the groom) was so relaxed waiting for his Bride to show up via a water arrival, he began to play with the "locals" to keep himself busy. The wedding was beautiful, the weather just great and I believe everyone in attendance had a wonderful time. All of the wedding plans were arranged by a Wedding Consultant of which we were requested to be the photographer for this event. What an honor. A Wedding Consultant depends on you (all vendors) to make him/her look good as the Bride and Groom have hired this consultant to handle all details for them. That makes it very relaxing for the Bride and Groom so that they can just enjoy the day---basically just choose the date to get married, their wedding party and all show up. These are just a couple of the images from the day....of course, too many to share on line with you, although, if you should request us to be your photographer be assured that your images will be on-line for everyone to view after you have passed off the password choosen to view your images. This helps so that everyone no matter where they come from can view the wedding images and order them as they choose-weather they are from CA, FL, NY or overseas---they will be able to enjoy the images as well.

Have a great weekend!!!
