“But, we’re doing just fine already.” That was my response to Madie’s initial idea of starting a photography business. And it was true. Money aside though, I dreaded the thought of going to work. Work that was completed and then replaced a year later. The future was feeling like an unfulfilling loop. The idea of being photographers grew on me, and as always, Madie was right. Five years, 55 weddings and 85 portrait sessions later, here we are today.
I am a fulltime photographer and Madie is a stay-at-home mom/business partner. We have a cozy and inviting photo studio in the Empire Building in St. Paul. Our work has been featured on the walls of several satisfied clients. Our images have also found their way into publication on occasion. We’ve been honored to have images selected for Capture Minnesota three years in a row. You may have even seen a shot or two on TPT on occasion. From the cover of a novel to brochures for the Minnesota Museum of Modern Art, our images have found varied and interesting homes.
Madie & I were married in 2001. We have two lovely daughters. They are adorable and the best things that have ever happened to us. Yes, we have thousands of pictures of the girls, and yes, they get tired of seeing the camera. But, we persist on. I grew up in and around St. Paul and Madie grew up in Hutchinson. We currently call Inver Grove Heights home.
