Our goal is to capture the details and emotions that represent your unique personalities and the connection that binds you. Yes, Every picture has a story, but only some tell a beautiful story you wish you could relive again and again. When looking at your photos, you should feel the same joy and love you felt when the images were created.

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!

A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY

filled with meaningful moments you can cherish forever

 

Why elope?

After photographing over 400 traditional Minnesota weddings, I learned that most are quite stressful. the bride and groom have very few moments together. 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 authentic 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.

Photographic moments naturally occur without a forced shot-list needed.

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

You photos will evoke feelings of adventure and peace.

Your wedding can also serve as a honeymoon.

You start your marriage feeling more connected than ever.
