I have always loved eat at The Good Earth, so when the Edina location needed some images for their spring menu, I was very excited to join the team. They like natural light images full of texture and showing off the ingredients…my favorite way to photograph food. Here are a few detail shots, afterwards I was SO ready for spring! I can’t wait to sit on a patio and enjoy a tall glass of lemonade and one of these fresh dishes.
Lia Sophia is a jewelry line that is all the rage right now, and they are creating some gorgeous pieces with the focus on creative and gutsy brides that love fashion. Yesterday, I worked with a fabulous Lia Sophia advisor on a photoshoot to show off some of the ways the jewelry can be incorporated with bridal.
We decided on an urban environment, and I was so excited to use the private dining space of Spill the Wine. It is open, with a ton of windows, is the perfect mix of industrial and antique, and their metal wall made a killer backdrop! I’m a huge fan of this space, and it made the images pop with personality.
For the bridal flowers (what is a bridal photoshoot without awesome bouquets?) we were so fortunate to work with Summer Harsh Botanical Artistry. When Summer opened up the boxes filled with her designs, there was an audible gasp, we just loved them! She took notes of the types of jewelry we were photographing and the look of the space and made the perfect interpretation in her floral design. They were mod, full of texture, and just the right pop of color and style.
The final component to bring this whole shoot together was the hair styles. Danielle Peterson is one of the Twin Cities’ most talented stylists and has a great eye. Her efficiency and variety of hair styles was so appreciated at the shoot! She was able to create looks as fast as I shot! And the styles stayed perfect the whole time. She really got what we were going for, and you could tell that she loves fashion and knows how to use a hair style to complete a look.
I also appreciated the lovely veils loaned to us by Flutter Boutique. Their french veils added the final touch to the brides’ styles and helped us achieve the edgy yet classic look were were going for. Oh! And I can’t forget the lovely black gloves loaned to us by Ashley Fox Designs, she has an amazing collection and was very generous to let us use some for the shoot. We are truly thankful to have such a stellar group of people work on this shoot!

And without further ado, here are the pictures. Enjoy!
Lisa got together with Emily J. and Joynoelle for a series of appointment sessions where brides can meet them in a relaxed setting. I had always wanted to visit Joynoelle’s shop and was a kid in a candy store looking at all the beautiful colors, textures and details of the space. The ladies had delicious treats ready for their guests and examples of their work. I love this idea of a small intimate gathering which focuses on custom design and sharing ideas. Here are a few images from the event, enjoy!
…and he plays the ukulele.
I am so smitten with NYC comedian Ben Lerman. I first heard him perform last year on the Keith and the Girl Show and have been a fan ever sense. When he announced he would be playing a few songs at ACME Comedy Club I was so excited and became even more so when we decided to take some headshots.
I am very happy with how these images turned out, what do you think? Here are my favorites.
