10-10-10 Wedding ~ Swanstrom Photography

Posted by images on Sunday Oct 31, 2010 Under Wedding

When Brian and Cindy picked 10-10-2010 they probably never thought that besides such a memorable date, that the weather would be so warm. Their choice of location, Irvine Park, couldn’t have been better. It is a great place to have a wedding and when the weather is nice and the fall colors are at their peak it ends up not being just great but perfect.

A Fall Twin Cities Wedding ~ Swanstrom Photography

Posted by images on Saturday Oct 30, 2010 Under Wedding

The day turned out wonderfully for a late October wedding. A little rain ended early and allowed us to get some great images with the fall colors of St. Paul. In addition, the temperature was just right for being outside. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Autumn Engagement Pictures

Amber and Eric braved a little mud and some light breezes to join us at Rod and Gun Park for some engagement pictures. No one got too messy and the pictures turned out great, so it was all worth it.

Warm October Day ~ Swanstrom Photography

Posted by images on Monday Oct 25, 2010 Under Children, Family

We’ve had some beautiful weather this October and our shoot with some close friends was on one of those beautiful days. This family lives on the top of a wooded hill and the colors were so crisp. After taking some photos at their place, we headed to their “papa’s” farm to take some more with the tractor and the barn.

The Beauty of Fall ~ Swanstrom Photography

Posted by images on Thursday Oct 14, 2010 Under Children, Family

It often takes some time for kids to warm up to two strangers with a big black camera trying to get them to smile. For this shoot we started by keeping our distance, then we could get closer as long as daddy was holding on tight, and finally there weren’t any inhibitions. We’ve found that when working with kids, there is a fine balance between not dragging it out and being patient enough for them to become comfortable in front of the camera. With this little lady and her parents, we found the balance.

Jessie and Dan were wedding clients from a few years ago. The two of them have now become four and it was our privilege to spend an afternoon with them. Everyone looked so nice and the little ladies had some truly adorable outfits.

Fairytale German Destination Wedding ~ Swanstrom Photography

Posted by images on Monday Oct 4, 2010 Under Wedding

Tammy and our daughter Emma traveled to Germany for the wedding of Megan, a dear friend. Tammy was not the official photographer, yet she was able to share some special time with Megan photographing her before the ceremony. It was also a special time for Emma. She often asks to come to the weddings we photograph, but this was the first wedding that she actually attended. Not only that, she was able to be with the bride as she got ready. Congratulations Megan and Martin. Thanks for letting us be a part of your day.
