Minneapolis Photographer – Wedding & Baby I Kokal Photography » Minneapolis Minnesota Photography, Wedding photographer

I’m going to be real with you, as much as I would love to post more personal work, I know it won’t happen.  I didn’t even attempt to make it a new years resolution of mine.  I promise, I still do have a social life, I just don’t have the time to photograph, edit and blog about it.   Maybe in 5 more years when I’m hopefully not taking on as much work I will have time to blog about more personal things, until then a random blog once every 6 months or year will have to do.

This past weekend I got to spend time in the quaint town of Stevens Point, Wisconsin.  My good friend Quyen, who I’ve mentioned in my previous post moved there a couple month ago to be with her fiance, who by the way has an amazing head of hair!  It’s winter and things are a “little” slower, so me and another good photographer friend of ours Amanda made the trek to visit our cute little Q (as we like to call her).   It’s always fun and refreshing to get together with these girls because we all are pretty much at the same point in our photography careers.  We literally can talk photography hours upon hours and none of us get sick of it.  We got lucky because the night we drove, it snowed a few inches which left us a beautiful real life painting to wake up to.  Now if only all 3 of us would have been more smart an not worn our Hunter boots, our little feet may have been able to stay a little warmer and we could have had more time to capture the beauty!  Unfortunately we didn’t, and instead cozied up to Q’s wonderful fire place, drank coffee and baileys and talked photography.  It was quite relaxing.

Till next time…


Happy 2014!!!  I have to say as much as I hate the number thirteen, 2013 was a very good year!  That being said 2014 is looking to be out of this world!  With a new website undergoing construction (expected to be up and running by May), a new name for my business, and new logo (in the works), I have a so much to look forward to.  I am so excited for what’s ahead this year and feel so blessed to be photographing close to 20 wedding throughout this spring, summer, and fall already.  Let me tell you, my couples this year are amazing!  I seriously have to pinch myself sometimes, because doing something I love so much and calling it a “job” just doesn’t compute.

This past year, I had the honor of second shooting with not only a great photographer, but also a great friend for a couple weddings.  I’m excited to be working with her again this year and ALSO celebrating her marriage come May!  Quyen, from June and Jae Photography is not only a talented photographer, but also so much fun and if you ever need fashion advice, she’s your girl!  It was an honor to help Quyen shoot this wedding reception.  Stacy & Joe actually got married in Carmel, CA and had a reception back home for friends and family who could not attend the ceremony in California.  To read a little more and see additional photos from June & Jae Photography, click here.

“A guy out there was meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soul mate, the one you can tell your dreams to.  He’ll brush the hair out of your eyes.  Send you flowers when you least expect it.  He’ll stare at you during the movie, even though he paid $8 to see it.  He’ll call to say goodnight or just cause he is missing you.  He’ll look in your eyes and tell you, you’re the most beautiful girl in the world and for the first time in your life, you’ll believe it.”
