Last week Rivets and Roses photographer Jackson Faith and I took a photo-walk. These are some black and white images, Holga 120N, Ilford HP5+ that captured our adventure.
On May 19th, an auction house in Chicago will offer an important piece of Minnesota's architectural history for sale to the public - Frank Gehry's Winton House. Our photographer Thea, was lucky to be called upon to document the house in its current home near Owatonna, MN. If you have a few minutes, read up on the history here, http://www.wright20.com/pages/gehry.
It was an honor to collaborate with such a creative person like Jessica who inspires ideas for unique living spaces, and wears many hats in the design industry. Her and her sister Katie get their hands in all things creative, and it was a joy to work with them in their creative space for these portraits.
Kate and Karl are a power couple who own a wedding photography business called Tandem Tree. I was honored to have the opportunity to turn the camera onto them for once. These highlights from their intimate spring session shows how great of a couple they truly are.
If you haven't heard of the Walker's online-only exhibit 'Minnesota by Design' here is a good opportunity to change that. Hop on over to see a range of work by artists that the Walker is featuring as a type of fabric of Minnesota design. Our photographer, Thea has a small byline. She shot the piece titled 'After U.R. (A Magnetic Superbox) by Minneapolis based RO / LU.

Local event planner Gretchen, from Twirl Events, created a jazzy Speakeasy-esque fete for a local capital management company looking to treat their employees. The Nicolette Island Pavilion was transformed into a dark and spotlit club, fit with a cocktail bar, wine and beer tastings, and a build-your-own mashed potato buffet.
Our Rivets and Roses team hosted a little happy hour in our studio, and we were lucky enough to have cocktails made by Easy & Oskey. The amazing drinks, and company of other wedding vendors in town made it a great night! These are some behind the scenes taken by our wonderful boss lady Eliesa Johnson.
Our team is honored every year to photograph in the best wedding venues. These Minnesota wedding locations sculpt our city, and attract bride and grooms to have their weddings at these venues to embrace the style of their wedding. With all the options that our state offers, these are a few of our favorite wedding locations that we have been to.

That moment when a bride gets into the dress is a significant part of the wedding day coverage that our team photographs. These photos show the intimate moments between the bride and all the people who are there to help them get into the dress, and how important it is to have them there to help.
