who are these guys.jpg


Hey my name is Perry!

Photography has been a part of my life since I sold my parents camera on eBay in 6th grade without them knowing. Whoops. My wife, dog, and soon-to-be daughter live in Maple Grove and we are really excited to be first-time parents! I studied Social Sciences at Liberty University and spend my time working as a full-time wedding photographer and teaching photography at Maranatha Christian Academy. Russell and I are both on the board for a local non-profit, Photos That Give and this is how we met almost 5 years ago. Since then, we have traveled the world together, been in each others weddings, and started a never-ending mini putt putt tournament. I'm excited about this workshop for so many reasons and I can't wait to meet you and share more about what I've learned on this amazing journey.

My name is Russell and that lovely lady I am carrying through the Northwoods of Canada is my wonderful wife Kelsey. She is a fourth grade teacher and her favorite animal is tied between dogs and sloths. We got married, built a house and are more focused on our careers than ever before. No kids yet, but we have 8 nephews and a niece so we have been in training ;) I studied Economics and Business Management at Gustavus Adolphus College along with Photography in Florence, Italy. I am a full time commercial, lifestyle and wedding photographer based out of our studio in Eden Prairie, MN. My goal is to teach other photographers things I wish I would have known when I started and to make sure they recognize their purpose.  I enjoy skiing, music, pond hockey, volleyball, hiking, biking, and working out at Lifetime. These activities keep me in great shape to hold mini putt putt trophies from Perry and I's never ending saga.
