A VERY WARM
I live in Minnesota. Need I say more? Kidding! But I do joke that I'm a destination wedding photographer because I need to get away in the winter time as much as possible. I REALLY like sunshine... and a few less mosquitos. However, the more traveling I do, the more I embrace my home state as well. The world has plenty to offer to us adventurous souls, but there's something about home!! I personally feel connected to Destination weddings and elopements because it's when people are the most connected and I LOVE that regardless of where the location is!
I have a sense of purpose and fulfillment when I'm part of the reason people enjoy their special day. After photographing around 400 weddings, I knew I had to use my knowledge and experiences to guide couples while planning. It's the greatest feeling when I see real laughter, genuine smiles and a deep connection that we all long for in this busy life. The best photos are ones where people are in the moment and genuinely enjoying themselves!
The Maple leaf IS A SYMBOL OF unity, peace, practicality & promise.
Trisha puts her heart and soul into this business. She loves bringing out the best in people, making them feel comfortable, and showing them how absolutely perfect their own little story is in this big ole busy world. She craves adventure, loves to travel and believes the prettiest pictures are captured on film because they are real and perfectly imperfect. She can't decide if she wants to be an adventure photographer or a fine art wedding photographer so she combines the two styles and makes it her own. Her favorite things are her kids, pups, horses & volleyball.
"Liz is my Associate Photographer who photographs the Minnesota weddings if I'm off traveling or double-booked? She emulates my shooting style and offers plenty of experience to ensure a smooth flow to your day! I do all the editing to make sure it matches the film aesthetic represented in my work."
Liz Merten is a portrait photographer based in Bowlus, but loves to shoot a handful of weddings a year for Trisha so she can focus on her growing family instead of editing thousands of images every week. She has a personality that shines in front of a crowd and it is impossible not to like her the second you meet her. She is also a certified Officiant so she's a great add-on to Elopement Collections. And hey...who doesn't want an officiant that can also shoot some amazing photos before and after!!

memories we made along the way
