The man of your dreams has proposed to you so you start dreaming of your wedding day, the dress, all your friends and family there, it’s your day. You imagine this gorgeous Minnesota day captured in your images that you get to treasure for the rest of your happily ever after. Does this dream include you in your dream wedding dress at sunset, in a field of wildflowers, or with a horse or an other animal that means a lot to you. All these options you just can’t plan to include on your wedding day due to time or the distance from the actual wedding.
Well what about adding a private bridal photography session to your wedding planning? Bridal sessions are everything that you dream of. These stylized sessions are designed to reflect your personality and to create the dream images of you in your wedding dress. I work alongside you to create your dream session; including renting furniture and a hair and makeup artist all at the location of your choosing. No detail will be missed!
During this session, you do not have to be as formal as your wedding. Your hair can be down and your makeup can be bolder than you plan on wear on your wedding. These images do not have to have the same look as your wedding photos. This is an opportunity for you to take on a different look, but still be in the dress of your dreams.
“My favorite part was that the shoot was so relaxed and just fun! On my wedding day it felt so rushed and there was so much excitement that I'm really glad I did a shoot prior. I also really enjoyed spending the afternoon with Kendra who did make-up, you of course, and my sister in law. It was like playing big kid dress-up. Overall I really appreciated how relaxed it was. For me it was also nice to try everything on before my wedding and get a sense of how I would look prior to the big day.”
In addition, at the end of your bridal session you can throw in a mini boudoir photography session. You already have all the cute furniture, your hair and makeup are done, and you are getting out of your dress to go home, so why not! All you need to complete boudoir experience is simple flirty images. If you would like to add a boudoir photogpraphy session to the end of your bridal session and would like to use the images as a gift to your groom, make sure to book your bridal session at least a month before your wedding.
“Love, love, love, the photos. The images were so soft and really focused on the beauty of the bride which was nice. They were personal images. The link to download the pics was also really really nice; and so was the app. That was a great tool to share with friends and family. I'd highly suggest doing that for all shoots.”

“Katie, I think you do an excellent job. You made the experience fun! And, for some of the more intimate shots you made me feel really comfortable and confident. In addition, you couldn't have picked a more perfect setting! Overall very impressed and very happy I had the opportunity to do the shoot! The photos turned out great, were turned around quickly and delivered in an easy to use format.”
