October 13th was an absolutely amazing day to celebrate Lindsay and Tyler. The wedding ceremony took place at The Church of St. Peter in Mendota is oldest Catholic Church in Minnesota. It was a beautiful background for their perfect day. After the ceremony everyone headed over to the Saint Paul Athletic Club to continue the celebration. What an amazing reception it was with friends and family from all over the country! Delicious food, flowing drinks and dance floor full of smiles and laughter. Congratulations to this amazing couple. Please enjoy a couple photos from their wedding day. If you are interested in seeing their entire wedding gallery once it is released you may sign up below:
The Boser Wedding
Glaring at the weather forecast all week we thought it was going to be a rainy day but rain or shine this beautiful couple was going to get married. It ended up being overcast but stayed perfectly dry until we started POPPING BOTTLES with this group! Rebecca and Aaron have extremely supportive friends and family members that made this day so unbelievably special, A perfect early Fall day for a perfect couple. After 8 years of love and sharing that love through Vikings game days on Sunday these two are now called the Boser's. They both believe that the other is the kindest person they have ever met and I felt that kindness from them on September 29, 2018.
I was honored to be their chosen twin cities wedding photographer and would not have been able to capture the day without the help of my lovely assistant, Kate Lynner. Also this couple had a pretty sweet line up of vendors which all made the day possible. Shout out to:

After living in Andover, Minnesota for several years with two young daughters and working as a Professional Family Photographer owning ADH Creative Solutions LLC, I have learned that we have access to some pretty beautiful parks that are very close by in the north of Minneapolis suburbs. Most people love Minnesota because of the amazing lakes. After all, we do have just a couple of them. When you think about where to take family photos it is important to think about the types of photos you are looking to have taken. Are you a fan of natural backgrounds? Do you want or need to bring any props? Is there an activity that you love to do as a family that allows people to see your personalities? I think it is important to leave yourself with a couple different options which is why I love these three parks so much.
1. Bunker Hills Park, Andover
My favorite, by far, and also highest requested location is hands down, Bunker Hills Park. It is a wonderful park with a ton of area and different types of scenery. If you are interested in large trees this park has you covered. It has a small playground, walking paths and a concrete staircase that makes for some really cool photos as well. It has lots of wildflowers and a large picnic pavilion.Ohh and a tank, yes a TANK! I have never come across any other park that can say this. It is an Anoka County Regional park so it does require a season pass or a $6 entry fee.
2. Lion's Coon Creek Park, Coon Rapids
If you are looking for a spectacular natural area and a lot of greenery then we have another gem right off Hanson and Highway 10 and that is Lions Coon Creek Park. This park is beautiful during the summer with lush greenery and offers pretty vibrant fall colors as well. My favorite element of this park is its bridge! I have always loved family photos on bridges. A random tip about this park is the mosquitos are INTENSE during the summer so make sure you pack bug spray or you will get eaten up.
3. Lake George Regional Park, Oak Grove
If you are looking for a mixture of great landscapes, beautiful trees and also want to take some photos in the water than you need to think about a different type of park. Lake George Regional Park has multiple elements which are fantastic for family photos. It has a dock, playground, picnic area and beach. It is also an Anoka County Regional park so it does require a season pass or a $6 entry fee.
So there you have it. Three great parks for Andover family photos. If you are interested in booking a photoshoot with a local Family Portrait Photographer then Adam Hymans of ADH Creative Solutions LLC will gladly help you out. To view portfolio click here.
A Preview of the Perfect Day...
With friends and family gathered at Jean Acres in Ellsworth, WI, they had the most beautiful setting for their special day. Rustic Barn, massive chicken cookers, beautiful scenery and beer flowing all day. I could not have imagined a better celebration of love for these two! I know that they will have a lifetime full of love and happiness.

Beautiful farm nestled on top of the rolling hills of Ellsworth, WI.
On March 13th, 2015 my brother was able to marry the woman of his dreams. Several months back Kristy and Ben asked me if I could take photos of their wedding. I agreed without a moment of hesitation. When we arrived at the Stanley Hotel I knew we were going to get some amazing shots. I really tried to harness the ominous feel of the historic hotel and create some images that captured their love and the scenery. I am so happy for my brother and new sister and wanted to say thank you for letting me shoot your wedding!
