Excited to announce that two weeks from today I’m headed off on a grand adventure. An adventure that has been 13+ years in the making.
Before I dive into the details, I have to say (yet again, I’ll never stop saying it!!) I’m extremely grateful for this little photography business that allows me freedom and flexibility, and the joy of spending my days doing something I love. But the best part is the people I work with. I am so, so incredibly grateful to my clients for trusting me to document milestones in their lives. Not only that, but I get lots of support and love from you guys. Thank you.
So what’s the grand adventure? Me and my pup are boarding a plane with a one way ticket to Oahu, Hawaii!! Head on over to my personal account @pieandthesky to read more. I’m still booking a limited number of 2019 summer and fall weddings, but in addition to booking in the Twin Cities, and greater Minnesota and Wisconsin, I’m also shooting sessions, elopements, and destination weddings on the Hawaiian islands. Know anyone headed to HI? Please send ‘em my way!
Cheers to exciting adventures and new beginnings!
We all love a good Black Friday Sale, but we're pretty sure everything else about Black Friday we hate. Long lines, the cold, crazy antics...well, we are making it easy on everyone. We are having a Fuji 400H case sale that starts today and goes until midnight on Cyber Monday. What is a case you ask? 100 rolls. So, 100 rolls of Fuji 400H in 120 is $610 shipped to the CONUS (HI/AK add $5) and 100 rolls of Fuji 400H in 35mm is $815 shipped to the CONUS (HI/AK add $5). And the best part is you don't have to leave your house and you can even procrastinate as it goes all week. Swipe up in our stories to order! Great shot on Fuji 400H by @michellelangephoto!

GIVEAWAY (please share!) Holy heck, I’ve never done this before. So. I’ve just (mostly) finished a major refresh of my website, and I thought I’d celebrate by giving away THREE prints. If you spend some time over there (link in profile, duh), you’ll see that I have a heavy literary influence in my work, so here’s how you enter.
Comment on this post with a quote from a song, a book or a poem that inspires you, one that you carry close to your heart. If you choose not to share, you can pick a quote from my site that resonates.
In this week of Thanksgiving, I want to show you all my gratitude for the friendships I’ve developed here over the years and for all the support you’ve given me. No restrictions, just share a quote to get your name in the hat. Entries close at midnight on Thursday, November, 22, and @calhounddrinks & I will draw the winners in my stories on Friday, the 23rd. Winners will receive one of the three prints featured here (printed by my friends at @richardphotolab), either as an 8x10 or a 8x8, respectively.
Thank you all for everything over the years and I can’t wait to be inspired, again, by you! #giveaway#film

“Two of the best parents out there!! Getting to watch these two navigate their first couple weeks of parenthood has been such a joy! Halia is the most loved little girl in the whole world ❤️❤️” - @jessnakasone
Last week I showed the photo above to a friend. She didn’t know the couple in the photo. Her reaction was unexpected: she started crying.
I had showed her the gallery of photos from this wedding, and this was one of the last shots in the gallery. No other photo made her cry.
I asked her what made her cry. It isn’t a particularly emotive photo in the traditional way - it’s not an extreme expression or a crazy, love-y moment.
She couldn’t explain why the photo made her cry.
But what was interesting about this photograph, is that it was the first photograph in the gallery that I showed her that was shot on medium format film (Fuji 400H and developed by the legends at @rewindphotolab ). I’m not going to say that the only way to create emotion in a photograph is to shoot on film. That’s bullshit. But it was an interesting experiment.
My guess? This photograph triggered a subconscious reaction.
It reminded me that equipment and composition choices can be important in conveying meaning, particularly at a subconscious level. A photograph can be technically excellent, yet be completely emotionless in delivery.
The modern trend toward super-sharp lenses and billion megapixel sensors, all perfectly stabilized and free from ‘abberation’ or ‘errors’, can leave something behind. That something is character. Character engages the subconscious. You can’t explain the way you feel but you feel it nonetheless.
The takeaway? Don’t be afraid to listen to your subconscious when choosing what lens or camera to use (or making any important decision for that matter). So many decisions are already made for us before we choose equipment: this camera has more dynamic range, better ISO, that lens is sharper and has less vignetting. It’s the ‘obvious choice’. But you know what? Fuck it. You’re an adult. You aren’t at school anymore. You don’t need to listen to anyone else’s opinion. If you like something better but you don’t know why - make the conscious decision to go with your subconscious opinion, and stop worrying about the consequences.
Working on Ashley and Ryan’s epic Yosemite engagement session - I had so much fun with these two and can’t wait for their wedding next year with @idodetailslv! ✨

Officially back in Chicago to kick off our last wedding of the year! STAY TUNED, because as of next week we are going to start rolling out some hints, big giveaways and an even bigger announcement for 2019 that you won’t want to miss!! ✨✨✨
Let’s talk preferences! While your lighting situation, film stock, and exposures are all huge factors in creating your look, another important factor is your scanning preferences. Do you prefer a light and airy look like this shot, or something a little more moody? Do you like your images scanned for shadows, highlights, or mid-tones? Regardless of what look you’re going for, communication is key. Our Select-A-Tech program makes this easier than ever, because you’re paired with the same scanning tech for every order. Not only does this help with consistency, but it also gives you a direct line of communication to help achieve the look you want. Email [email protected] for more information! Beautiful shot by @lovedaphnemae.#fuji400h#contax645#thefindlab
I’ve been in California this weekend and I can’t think of many places more special than the ocean. I’m always so mesmerized by its sight, sound, and smell. There’s something so truly special about it. Film Processing: @photovisionprints
