Howdy, I’m Tom! I’m a Minneapolis wedding and elopement photographer who loves intimate imagery, adventurous souls, and great laughs. I like to classify as a hardy midwestern, only the cold and I don’t get along too well – and, if you put a hotdish in front of me I am completely sold. I drink my coffee black – yes, black – and laugh at virtually anything (Literally, say anything and I’m probably already laughing). I find solitude in the quiet moments and have a knack for telling stories through photography.
I call Minnesota home, but no distance is too far – I am available for travel, worldwide. When I’m not behind the camera, I’m often spending time relaxing with my family, cooking and (sometimes) poorly executing a new recipe, or out enjoying the sights and sounds of a local coffee shop.
As a photographer, I strive to keep my work honest and authentically focused on telling a unique story that is true to you. In all honestly, overly-posed, prom-esque photos totally suck. There’s also no sense in trying to tell your story by using the stories of others. I want to create imagery that feels like you, and so I shoot the story exactly how it unfolds. You have a connection that is completely unique to you, so let’s foster it. I absolutely love it when people let their guard down. Just trust me–let the wind blow your hair around & forget about trying to keep your dress from getting dirty.
I’m all about what’s natural. I give direction to pull out your energy, quirks, and connection to one another, and those little in-betweens are what bring the “feelings” of your big day to life. I want you to let yourself laugh, cry, and remember what your love means to you because it is different than any other love. I promise those in-between moments are going to make the day so much more memorable! If you’re excited by life like I am, or if you’d just like to share your favorite hotdish recipe, I am ready for you! Let’s connect, get some coffee, and start telling your story!
