the name

XSPERIENCE

I know what you're thinking...doesn't she know how to spell? You're actually looking at a 3rd grade spelling bee contender lol, so yes. The name represents two people coming together (x) and my last name spencer, mixed up of course. Most importantly I knew i wanted my business to focus on the experience as much as the images created.

captured the magic

I seriously do not have the words to describe how amazing Trisha was throughout the entire experience. She was so good with the kids and with all the guests. She is so humble, and Oh my God, the pictures are something from a magazine. She is professional and just perfect at what she does. No one could have captured the magic of my special night like Xsperience photography!

picture perfect day

Trisha planned our picture perfect wedding. With Covid making it difficult, the idea of eloping sounded like a great idea. We had a blast on our road trip to Idaho, and Trisha picked the perfect location with an amazing mountain view and lake. Being able to exchange vows in such picturesque views and our son present, made it the most special day. And then to end the night skipping rocks as a family...sooo fun!!

she brings sunshine

Trisha captured my daughter and new son-in-law’s destination engagement photo shoot in California AND wedding at The Atrium in Wisconsin. She is amazing. The photos were beautiful. But, more than that, Trisha is a joy to be around. She brings sunshine to the day, is professional, friendly and very smooth. Capturing spontaneous moments as well as formal pictures. She works very hard and somehow makes it look effortless. She truly enjoys her craft- and it shows through in the photos!

on the flip side

We are not the right fit for everyone. Every photographer is an artist at heart. Therefore certain things make our hearts sing and others make us want to consider a different career lol. If any of the following things is what you're seeking, we truly appreciate you stopping by, but recommend you continue your search. Our number one goal is to ensure everyone is happy in the end!

perfectionism over reality

Get to know us more....

Let's face it...you spend as much, or more, time with your photographer than anyone else on your wedding day. Definitely invest time in getting to know them and their style. You don't get to re-do it!! Well...I guess you could do a vow renewal which we LOVE by the way!!!!! But you know what we mean;) You should also request full galleries to make sure you're not disappointed with the final result. It's easy to have a pretty instagram feed and website, but reality is different if you wish to have more than a few pretty pics.

Why elope?

After photographing over 300 traditional minnesota weddings, i learned that most are quite stressful. the bride and groom have very few intimate moments, if any. family drama can ruin the day. the couple is often exhausted before the "fun" even begins. and sadly when i arrive and say, "how excited are you guys?!"...I hear, "ugh, I can't wait for this day to be over". so why elope or have a small wedding?

It's filled with intimate moments.

It's authentic, unique and true to you.

There may be family drama when you announce your decision, but it's short-lived;)

Those closest to your hearts can still join in on the fun.

Memories present themselves from beginning to end...

Pretty light, scenery and genuine feelings of joy and love make the prettiest pictures!

You photos will evoke feelings of adventure and peace.

Your money is spent on creating memories vs decorations, food and booze.

You start your marriage feeling more connected then ever.

 

I would love to hear from you, even if you're just in the beginning planning phase. I'm here to help. Call, Text or Email. If you don't hear from me within 24 hours please call or text. Technology is pretty amazing, but sometimes unreliable;)
