I’m a wedding, family & newborn photographer based in Minneapolis, MN! When I’m not working on my business, I spend my free time cuddling my rescue pups, exploring a new trail or bingeing a new crime thriller. Let’s be friends — follow along on Instagram to get to know me more @bauercreativephoto!

Oak Ridge Conference Center Wedding / Lucas + Annie

  Well friends, I fell off the blogging bandwagon! Between planning and having my wedding, settling into married life, a big website refresh and the holidays, blogging was low on my priority list.

Carpenter Nature Center Wedding / Jill + Izzy

  Jill and Izzy booked me for only a short time on their wedding day, enough to capture their ceremony, May Pole dance, and family photos.
