Megan + Justin’s NE Minneapolis engagement photography

I met Megan growing up at Buffalo Covenant Church.  From there we ran into each other at school and may have played a sport together.  I defer to you, Megan, on that one :)  Megan has always struck me as the epitome of nice, Minnesota nice to be specific.  She never spares a kind word or compliment and seems to me to be always outward focused, selfless.

And Justin.  I met him at this photo shoot and he was all about Megan and it became abundantly clear that with these two people combined the world is gifted a dynamic duo of overflowing kindness and selflessness.

Megan emailed me a couple of months ago asking if I could photograph her wedding on August 31, 2013.  I think I had way too many !!!! in my response email.  And why wouldn’t I be excited?  I was going to get to do an engagement shoot in NE Minneapolis (which was a dream of mine), I would get to spend some time with family in my relaxed MN home town, and I would get to see some old friends from church and school… all of this on top of the normal joys of photographing a gorgeous Christian couple totally in love!  Yes, I was stoked.

For our engagement shoot Megan requested photos by and at the Guthrie Theater (they love attending shows here) and I requested photos by the bridge by the old Pillsbury factory… little did I know, my photo spot was the backyard of the Guthrie.  Perfect!

We set out at dusk, as I so frequently request, and took all these awesome pictures of these two love birds!  I went way over time with them because we were having so much fun!

What I loved about this session was the couple with beautiful faces and hearts, the location and eclectic plethora of spots to utilize for backdrops and props, and the shots we took inside the Guthrie Theater.

Oh, and did I tell you Megan is so sweet she bought be a beverage at the end of our time together?

Megan + Justin, thank you for choosing me to capture your love!  To say I had a blast isn’t enough, you two are a joy and so incredibly kind!

This site is all about my journeys as a professional photographer in Madison. But first and foremost I am Kaia. Kaia means “Earth” in Norwegian and I live up to that by tree hugging, dog loving, and nature walking.  My first word was “happy,” I still love to jump in puddles, I strive to live simply and self-sustainably, and my favorite color is yellow.  I’m married to a stunningly handsome, ridiculously talented, and intensely loving musician husband. We have a spunky baby girl (see more of her HERE), one furry friend (see more of them HERE), and we all live happily ever after in a house on a hill in the land of southern Wisconsin.

I am a photographer bent on capturing the uniqueness in life.  I strive to serve my clients lovingly, creating a series of memories they can cherish forever, and making them my forever friends.  I shoot honest photography – real people, real colors, and real life.

Weddings, senior portraits, boudoir, newborns, and family photography (especially in the fall) are my primary photographic endeavors.  I offer many gorgeous products ranging from prints, to albums, to wall art products and more, but I particularly love creating my custom designed Coffee Table Albums with my clients.

Do I sound like so much fun and you are so in love with my work?  Next, step/mouse over to my “Contact” tab and let’s get started on some great pictures!

I do the majority of my photography as a Janesville baby photographer, Madison wedding photographer, Janesville wedding photographer, Madison boudoir photographer, Janesville senior portraits photographer and any place that my camera will take me.  I am available for travel worldwide as your destination wedding photographer!
