Magic in Motion

Photo Oct 22, 1 06 33 PMWhen it’s this close to Halloween, and the full on lush of fall has spread into the city, there is an air of change that is as exciting as it is scary. Teaming up with self proclaimed witchy woman, photographer, Katie Essick in St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood we captured some magic one bright autumn morning. It was a stunning outcome as Madeleine stomped around in the crisp air with hints of warmth from the fleeting sun. Too cool for winter, too hot for summer. Only fall can feel this way.

Roar(ing) 20s | Photo series by Ninethirty

Do you ever wish you could travel back in time with your present bank account? We’d be so rich! New York City in the 1920’s would be the first place I would have to visit. I’m sure all my money would go to jewelry and clothing. Ahhh, it’s fun to dream….

In it’s first life it …….. In it’s second life, it was rocked out by Jen at her high school prom……. it’s third revival was captured by photographer Katie Essick.

Five Brides | BTS

As a photographer and a make up artist we have been making things beautiful for some time now, honing our skills and more then anything learning how to translate this passion into our jewelry business. We would go as far as to say this is, kind of our jam. This go around we packed in two full on styled shoots, five models, three stylists, two hair and make up artists, two photographers and a whole lotta jewelry into one hot and humid afternoon. We can’t wait to show you the final result, for now… BTS SNEAK PEEK:

The Brides and Groom

As we find ourselves deep into the throws of wedding season, we received these beautiful images of this amazing collaborative shoot featuring Forever Bride captured by Noah’s Ark Photography. Always happy to lend a stylish hand, it was a beautiful day at The Gale Mansion in Minneapolis where we shot inside and out to captured details of this fairytale shoot. From accessories to invitations, flowers and desserts, the day was full of beautiful options, including two brides for one groom!

Gritty NYC vibes from a fifth floor apartment in Harlem. Jen’s latest trip to the big apple was capped off with this saucy collaboration with photographer Asha Efia. We love the hazy moodiness of these pics as you can imagine starting your day off half naked, sipping coffee, lounging in your underwear before you hit the streets in that white hot two piece outfit.
