Le Meridien Chambers Hotel, City Wedding!

For this wedding, I worked alongside Jennifer Whalen as a 2nd photographer and assistant.  Within this blog, I share some of the pics I captured, as I accompanied Jennifer throughout her day with her lovely bride and groom, Caleb & Heather !   I was able to shoot some unique viewpoints, standing at various angles to what Jennifer was also shooting.  Everything turned out just terrific, and I couldn’t be happier with the images from this day.

> If you’re not familiar with the Chambers hotel, it has been coined an ‘art hotel’ that offers hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and fine dining within unique mingling nooks.

Little Cuties- in New Prague, MN

I had the privilege of working with a couple of friends who are close, and share their newly found ‘mommy time’ together as they go on special outings to downtown shops and thrift stores -in the tranquility of the day- while their kids play.  The kids entertain one another, with laughs, giggles, and blue-eyed smiles, as they share newly discovered objects in the thrift store!   Then, each mom does her search, as she scours the many racks of hidden treasures, often finding great buys..

I accompanied them on one of their many days together, and discovered some great buys of my own!~
What a treasure hunt it was, … I even felt like I entered an eerie, -old romantic- world when we set foot in a large, small-town storehouse of old objects stacked from floor to ceiling.

It was a great day, and we ended it with creative photo time at the local park in New Prague, MN.
