pc: Emily Detering Photography
I get to photograph humans for a living & honestly it's the best thing. I can't quite describe the joy & passion I feel to be at a session or wedding, shooting photos of a family or a couple about to start their life together! Photography has been in my bones since I was about 11 years old with my first point & shoot Nikon, asking my parents, friends, and anybody in the world to pose for me.
During the "great COVID-19 quarantine of 2020," I started pivoting my business to lifestyle and wedding photography, specifically wanting to branch into the world of elopements & intimate ceremonies. I second shot weddings and absolutely fell in love with everything in the wedding industry. On your wedding day, I'm there to take photos for sure, but I'm also there to cheer you on as you have your first kiss as a married couple, to hand you a tissue as mom cries seeing her baby girl in a wedding dress for the main event, and of course to capture your future husband waiting at the end of the aisle for you.
The point is, this is my job and I love it, but more than that, I want to love the people I photograph well and that is why I do what I do.

I am primarily a Minnesota photographer but I am always open to travel, especially if there are mountains & lakes.
Hamilton is now in my top three favorite musicals (you can send me a message if you want to know what the other two are!) & my all-time favorite movie is The Proposal.
