AMANDA & GUNNAR | MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Photographing Amanda & Gunnar’s wedding was extra special, because A&G are my good friends! I love them dearly and am SO HAPPY for this incredible couple. They have been together for over 10 years, so it was no surprise when they announced their engagement and plans to wed and a small, non-traditional wedding ceremony. Amanda is an amazing artist and designer and put her own special touch on everything for the wedding. She even had a hand in designing her dress which was handmade by her talented mother. Love you guys!!!




















Roee Dori - So charming. Your work always has your signature. Love it!

VILMARIE & CHRIS | MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Here is a little (okay, BIG) preview from Vil & Chris’ beautiful wedding day. The whole day was planned to perfection and expertly coordinated by Kirsten of Fab Event Design. I had such a great time working with the couple and their families! I loved the vibrant colors and beautiful ceremony and reception sites!

Here’s what Vil had to say after viewing the photos for the first time:
“Ahhhhh!!!!!!! Yay! I just spent like, forever looking at all of them. Thank you soooo much! Seriously…there are no words. I laughed, I cried…all over again! Mind you, I’m sitting in a computer lab at school all by myself. If anyone were to walk in, they’d think I was a weirdo haha. Thank you so very very much for capturing our day so marvelously. There just are no words to express how much I appreciate it and you!”































s h e r r y - :) Love these photos!! The ring shot is especially awesome.

Elizabeth Anne - These look amazing Laura! I’m with Sherry-the ring pic is hot! :)

Vilmarie - YAY!!! Thank you thank you thank you again! :-)

kirsten - awww…i love these two and i loved this wedding. FANTASTIC work, Laura!!!

Tiffany - My sister is in love with her dress- do you by chance know where she got it? :) I love the ring shot too!

ANNE & NOAH | SAINT PAUL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY































Please excuse the extra long post, but I am so in love with Anne & Noah’s gorgeous downtown Saint Paul wedding. Not only are Anne & Noah amazing, hospitable, kind, fabulous people, but they also host a great party. I was so honored to be a part of their wedding day. I also have to give a special thanks to the team at Laura Mullen Event Design, who did an amazing job planning and executing this wedding day and, endless thanks and gratitude to my friend, Melissa Schollaert, who second shot this wedding with me. Many of the shots above were captured my Melissa and she is talented beyond words. I met Melissa at Jose Villa’s Italy Workshop, which we attended together last fall in Tuscany, Italy, and Melissa flew in from Atlanta for the weekend to shoot with me. I’ll also be shooting with her in Florida this fall and I’m so excited!

I LOVE NY!

I recently traveled to New York City to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Being the lady that I am, I won’t mention her age, but it rhymes with “dirty.” Anyway, since it was going to be a girls trip and I wouldn’t have my hubby around to carry my gear like I often do when I travel, AND inspired by fellow photographer/friend Jose, who made me travel to Florence, Italy with only one camera, I decided to pack light, brining only my favorite film camera.

Enjoy!

























Images captured on a Contax 645 with Fuji Pro 400H film.

 

helgi - stunning!!!…and you know me now, so shoot me an email and make your dream come true!! XOXO

Nicki - Hi Laura, love the photos! I’m a fellow Minnesotan turned Brooklynite, I’d love to hear any NYC photo plans you have, or if you need any rec’s on the city I’m happy to help. Glad you enjoyed your trip!

natalie - hoooooly crap I love these!!! Especially the black and white chelsea markets pics. And the one of us jumping turned out amazing!!! Let’s go back tomorrow!

Tiffany - Gorgeous! What is with the large pile of white shoes? Also the black flower dress(?)/romper(?) is adorable! :)

geneoh - amazing. love the color!

John Sharpe - Love these Laura, so jealous of your 645 and that you just took the one camera on your trip. I need to do somethign like that. BTW, what was with the white shoes…really liked that shot! Still haven’t been to NYC…need to get there.

Emily S - Love it! I totally want to visit NY.

Laura - Thanks everyone! The white shoes were adhered to a wall in a shoe store… a giant glob of decor/shoe art! Very cool!

@Emily & John- yes, you need to get to NYC

Stacy Able - ahhh gorgeous again but this time in film!! beautiful stuff Laura and looks like it was a super fun trip, too :)

Jyll - Ahhhhh!!! Laura…these are fantastic! It looks like you had a wonderful time capturing the city that never sleeps. Wonderful work lady!

DESIREE & NOLAN | MINNEAPOLIS ENGAGEMENT

Meet Des & Nolan! We were having really bad luck with scheduling their engagement session. It seemed that every date we chose ended up being a rainy, stormy day. I guess the third time is the charm, because we finally met for their engagement session on the HOTTEST day of year. Go figure! But Des & Nolan handled it like troopers. Even their doggie, Bear, got in on the photo action, although, I felt quite bad for him with his black fur. I was a bit worried the poor guy was going to pass out. When we finally couldn’t take the heat, we snuck into the Walker for refuge and freezing cold AC. Enjoy the preview!









jennie gaskins - love how airy their session looks!! and the dog tie is GREAT!!!

Glenda - Awesome Laura!

John Sharpe - Love this session! That first horizontal shot inside…is AWESEOM! Did you get a permit to shoot at the walker or snuck in? I’ve gotten kicked out of there before.

Laura - Thanks guys!

@John- Permit?!? Uhh, no, but we asked at the front desk if we could shoot there. It was SO HOT and I was practically melting… they probably felt bad for us, so they let us use the entry!

Amy - aww love the walker! miss MN so much!! what a beautiful shoot!

tasha - SO beautiful and full of life! Love it! You’d never know you were melting outside :)

Kristen Drufke - giggle-giggle. We had the same issue with a couple where we had to set up a time to meet like 6 times before we were able to make it all happen. lol. These photos were so worth it though! Love the ones in the Walker and with Bear. Great job Laura!

melissa oholendt - LOVVVVVE this couple’s style. They are gorgeous and their style is rocking. The Walker has to be one of my favorite locations for reals and I love how you used it!
