Over the past couple months, I’ve been staying busy with family photos and I can’t believe it’s already almost Christmas! Time has flown by and I realized I haven’t blogged some of the other weddings I second shot in the Fall with Mackenzie Orth! If you didn’t read my last blog about shooting with Mackenzie, I’ll say it again over and over again, I LOVE her and she is the sweetest to work with!
Here is the wedding of Emily + Brian that took place back in September in downtown Minneapolis, and their day was nothing less than beautiful. Mackenzie and I met Emily and her bridesmaids at Emily’s parents’ condo where they were drinking mimosas and getting ready- doing all things that girls are best at. Brian and his guys were just a couple floors up in his and Emily’s condo where they were doing all the guy things, which made it convenient for us to head up there to get some shots of Brian getting ready!
The first look was epic, as you’ll see in the images. It consisted of us climbing out of Emily and Brian’s neighbor’s window onto the roof, which did not have any guardrails. The view of the city was amazing and it was well worth it, even if it meant watching our every step to make sure we didn’t fall off! After the first look, we adventured around the city with the bridal party to take photos, making stops at the sculpture garden and one of Emily and Brian’s favorite bars, Monte Carlo, for a quick drink.
The ceremony was gorgeous and Emily + Brian’s grand entrance into the reception was to Ja Rule, I LOVED THIS! The rest of the night was amazing, it was full of friends, family, dancing, and everything else you would want at your wedding. I loved being able to help capture their special day and a huge thank you to Mackenzie for allowing me to second shoot with her!
