Maria and Sam // Lake Minnetonka

I photographed weddings in Minneapolis/St. Paul for 5 years before moving to California and never once did I do a wedding at a private residence on Lake Minnetonka! The house, the lake, the whole setting was beautiful. Dan and I met Maria four years ago. We did a video look book for her boutique, Motto, and she has remembered us ever since! We were more than happy to make the journey back to Minneapolis to photograph her and Sam's wedding. It was a small intimate event and they made it a priority to greet everyone that arrived right before the ceremony. One of the big challenges at weddings is for the bride and groom to find enough time in the schedule to give everyone personal attention. It's extremely difficult to do. Sam's speech highlighted it again, they valued every one of their friends and family, because together, they got to where they are in life today.
