The Magic of Minneapolis; who doesn’t have a crush on St. Anthony Main, the Aster Café, and the famous Stonearch Bridge? For an area of town that is well documented, I love to throw my creative two-cents and let the viewer and subject get lost in the emotion over the location. Kyle and Mallory have given me creative trust and license to fire away, and when the forecast called for rain, many couples would have called me and worried about rescheduling the date. Instead, these two basically said, “Bring all you got Vick!” I had to smirk and realize what an incredible job I have to get to work with all sorts of creatives and good souls who trust me and just know that variables in their day will also be the magical ones.

A french bulldog, Aamodt’s Apple Orchard, St. Croix Vineyards, and Stillwater. These are a few of my favorite things and Gillian and Nick decided to throw all four at me at once! I am grateful for these two in life and their enthusiasm for our art. If their wedding day has just an ounce of this contagious fun and adventure, I will be spoiled once again. Bring it on!

We dreamed up skating at Rockefeller, winter wonderland trees, and fresh snow. But when it’s 46 and the rink is a pond with ducks, you improvise and come up with something even better, a night shoot in the meat packing district of New York City.  Emily and John extended an epic invitation for me to come to their neighborhood and explore the nooks of the city that they love. New York decided to show off a little as well with the wet cobblestone streets that looked like something fairytale or The Bachelor. Needless to say, we laughed a lot and made art, a perfect end to my night.
