Alexa + Steph's Rice Park Proposal

I am so excited to share photos from Alexa and Steph's couples shoot-turned proposal in Rice Park! This was exciting not only because it was my first time documenting a proposal, but I also got the opportunity to work with two other nonbinary people. Queer love is the reason that I do what I do, and I am so grateful for every chance to work with other queer folks.

Enough about me though!

Alexa set up this shoot, telling their partner that they were just getting some nice couples photos taken, and Steph had no idea that they were going to propose! A passerby shouted out their congratulations to the couple while we were taking photos, foreshadowing their soon-to-be engagement.

While we were snapping photos on the steps of the St. Paul Public Library, friends of the couple were setting out a blanket, lights, and a box that housed a book that Alexa had painted, the last page reading "marry me?" When Steph opened their gift and got to the last page, Alexa popped the question, and Steph said yes! Their engagement was one of three taking place at Rice Park that night, and I may be biased, but I think that theirs was the sweetest. The forethought put into this proposal was incredibly cute, and the couple's embrace after getting engaged was heartwarming. Alex and Steph, congrats on your engagement, I am so glad to have been a part of it!

Allie + Matt... + Leika!

Allie and Matt's wedding was the first wedding that I ever photographed, in September of 2015. Two years later, they've added a new member to their family, Leika the husky!

Allie is a close friend and a former co-worker, as well as a rock climbing buddy. I've heard her gushing about huskies for years, and I am so excited that she finally has her dream dog! Leika is only four months old, but she's an old soul. She is immensely well-behaved (well, aside from the squirrel carcass she tried to eat at the park) and was willing to sit still for photos.

Thanks to these two new puppy parents! I still can't believe you trusted me to capture your wedding day all those years ago, and I can't wait to keep documenting your future.

Courtney + Tom

Courtney and Tom's wedding was a favorite, for many reasons. Their venue was bright and their floral arrangements were gorgeous, but it was the people in attendance that really stood out. These two are endlessly caring and supported, surrounded by a close network of friends and family. They had the sweetest morning ceremony at Pinstripes, followed by lunch, bowling and bocce ball. Their day had the perfect amount of quirk to it, with fun details like wedding mad-libs, or "wed-libs."

These two are easygoing and always ready to laugh, and I see a bright future for them in life and in love.

Hi! I'm Anna.

 
blogpost-3.jpg

Since I just revamped my website, and it now includes all of the work that I do as an artist, I figured it's time to make a post about me!

There are lots of things that I could talk about here but I'll just throw out the basics! I'm a resident of Minneapolis and a graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.  I'm a queer photographer and book artist, and I use they/them pronouns. My current goal as an artist is to be as transparent as possible about who I am as a person and what kind of work I enjoy making!  This blog will be home to anything that I feel like sharing, including weddings and engagements, updates about gallery openings, and general musings.
