Ribbon cutting for Catalyst

In the spring of 2019 I began working as the Location and Event Photographer for Philip Gilpin Jr, CEO of Catalyst Stories and Riki McManus, Director of the Upper Minnesota Film Office. Thanks to my friend and mentor, Riki, last summer, was remarkable, I photographed unusual locations, fabulous events and fascinating people.

A quaint in home wedding with a fall theme.

These beautiful cakes were made by a relative of the bride & groom.  I love the little fall gems on the table.
Chocolate artist Heidi Ash, 185 Chocolat set up a nice table at a Chamber event. I like her use of a tablet to show more photo of her work.
