Maggie and Pat {Minneapolis Wedding Photographer}



Fun fact: I started my wedding photography journey while in cosmetology school! I was giving a pedicure to a wedding photographer, and basically asked to work for her while scrubbing her feet. #noshame. Fast forward, and I started working in a salon full time as I built Empiria Studios!

Maggie was one of my first clients at the salon and we immediately hit it off. Sometimes it’s hard to make natural conversation for those two or three hours with a total stranger in the chair, but we just kept going–and even went out for drinks one time after her appointment! I ended up photographing Maggie’s sister Lindsey’s wedding, and now Maggie’s! Their whole family is unbelievably kind, generous, welcoming, and inclusive. I just love them! And of course–I love Pat and his family 😉 

Their wedding photos reflect my favorite aspects of this industry: genuine happiness. The pure joy and laughter makes this day one of my favorites!
