HI, I’M Josie

Being able to capture the most precious stories of love is truly the greatest blessing. I absolutely love being a photographer and connecting with people. I grew up in a small town in Central Minnesota. Surrounded by the most amazing family always being pushed to follow my dreams. This led me to a camera and I couldn't think of a better way to spend my days. 

Storytelling and connection will always be at the forefront of my business. Capturing your wedding day, your family, your love and telling a story with art is so important to me. Every couple is different and unique and I strive to tell your story authentically. On wedding day I am there to capture every big and small moment, from your first kiss to aunt Cathy getting down on the dance floor!! 

When I am not connecting with my couples and sharing love stories I am spending time with my lover, Jacob,  wake surfing in the summer or snowboarding in the winter, hanging out with my cat, Calvin, or doing some sort of home project. I am super into travelling and always looking for my next adventure!

A little about me

old souls.

I first got started in photography when I was in high school (2017). I really liked taking photos on my phone, editing them, and feeling like I had a little piece of artwork. I am not good at drawing or painting so having this photo be my little creation was so special. I then purchased my first camera and took photos of nature and my best friends until my Junior year of college (2021) when I decided to get serious with it. 

I value every individual, couple, and family that stands in front of my camera and allows me to capture the raw love that I witness. There is nothing more special than taking photos, going home to edit them, and having an album of precious moments and memories that will now be apart of someone's history. 

"There are few things that inspire me more than photography!"

Storytelling is so valued in my life. I believe that every story from our first day in this world to our last shapes us more and more into the person we want and can be. 

My style of photography is heavily influenced with storytelling. Each wedding or session has a story of its own and I make sure to document it as such. 

When you look back at your gallery throughout the years you will feel all of the emotions of that season you were documented in. You will think of all the love you felt, how naïve you were, and how this person had no idea how life changes so quickly. 

"Every story/couple/family/individual has a different story. Seeing each story through a new lens gives me the opportunity to document your unique love different than the last."

My job behind the lens is so important to me and I can assure you I won't miss a beat. I will be there early in the morning to capture you and mom sharing hugs before you get ready, the girls pouring mimosas for the squad, and the guys sharing stories of their best moments together. These moments are integral to telling your story of the day you and your love say "I DO!!" 

I will get special moments of buttoning the dress, tying the tie. Getting ready to see the love of your life for the first time that day. 

After sharing the most special moment with your love we will hang out with your wedding party and capture all of the laughs, smiles, and cheers! 

I will almost definitely get watery eyes during your ceremony okay I can't help it!! This is the moment we have all been anticipating!! That first kiss shot will be so memorable for the two of you! 

Now its the time we party all night long, letting loose on the dance floor! When Footloose comes on I will be out there capturing all the moves that aunt Cathy has to show off! 

I take this job very seriously as I know these memories will be apart of your history forever. I am so overjoyed to be able to be apart of so many love stories.

Rain, hail or shine, I won’t miss a beat

I know what you're thinking.... Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs IS the best movie ever!! You are my people!! 

When I am not photographing epic love stories I love getting outdoors with my lover! We love wake surfing in the summer and snowboarding in the winter! No matter the season we are always finding new ways to embrace the weather and be active. We are also addicted to house projects - help - 

Watching movies with my Cat, Calvin, and playing any Mario game on my Nintendo Switch is a go to pass time for me. I also LOVE to travel!! Going to new places fills my soul!! So if you say "destination wedding", I say "HECK YES!"

For enneagram enthusiasts - I am a type 9w8. Was once a 7 but retested as a 9 two years later. I don't know much about it, but it's kinda fun! 

That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favorite things. No matter who and where we are, we’re all souls wandering this beautiful earth, with a different story to share. No tale is one and the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is my go-to comfort movie
