Tips for second shooting like a PRO When I first started second shooting I didn’t know anything else besides I wanted to know how everything worked inside the wedding photography world. It took me a while not only to learn ALL THE THINGS but to actually become a value to other photographers. After over 5-6 […]

I am so in love with this Minnesota winter session in Minneapolis! What a wonderful way to celebrate the “end” of the winter! The snow kept coming even after spring officially started, and Lauren and Pravesh decided to embrace the cold for their engagement session. We went out for a chilly but very sweet morning […]

Ashley and Brandon’s Stone Arch Minneapolis engagement session was a dream! They wanted to have the city surroundings to contrast their destination wedding, so we woke up early for a sunrise session around the city.  It was so incredible to see the city so empty.  Usually there are people around everywhere, but we had the world […]

Dawn and Chris had the most amazing Minneapolis wedding at the Guthrie Theater, exactly on their one year (and one day) anniversary! There was a nip in the air, but the sun was out and it was just perfect for a Minnesota wedding! We had fun taking photos outside at the Gold Medal Park and […]

I absolute love in home maternity photos!  It’s so nice to have the mama-to-be somewhere comfortable, and what’s more comfortable than your own home?  We also don’t have to worry about the weather, so this particular session with Lauren and Michael was nice and warm compared to the winter weather that was happening outside.  We […]

In this episode we are talking with the amazing Renee, feminist life coach and writer who’s mission is to find way to empower women through storytelling . We are talking about navigating big life changes and […]

This beautiful Black sand Beach destination wedding in Ocotal was probably the best way to start my latest visit to Costa Rica!   Photography : Laura Alpizar,  for Sylvia Guardia Photography Venue :  Bahía Pez Vela Flowers : Artflower Costa Rica                                           […]

Perhaps my favorite part of this beautiful Twin Cities maternity session is the fact that Robin and her family left behind their warm California life to have this session in snowy, freezing Minnesota!  But I can’t really blame them.  Minnesota in the winter is like living inside a magical snow globe sometimes.  I am so […]

I am so happy to be sharing these photos with Stephanie Domrose for the second Episode of the Podcast “Don’t Mind me!”. Stephanie is an amazing beauty expert and a life coach who has a powerful story to share on her own life makeover from ending a toxic marriage to overcoming anxiety, all the way […]

The sun is out and we are out catching some of it! It was a wonderful parade in the city of Saint Paul. We had the change to see so much green and so much happy around the streets! The city of Saint Paul can truly throw a party! My favorite people show up always in […]

I am so happy to be sharing the photos we took after a conversation  with Kayla for the second Episode of the Podcast “Don’t Mind me!” This podcast started as a way to start a more honest and normal conversation about mental health. My hope is that it sheds a different light on the importance […]

Don’t miss the happy smiles from these Super Bowl Couple Photos in Minnesota! It was great to get downtown and see the Super Bowl Festivities down in Nicollet Mall: the snow globe, snowmobile stunts, and much more snow was coming down for everybody! I love seeing the people show up! 🙂 From Eagles fans to […]
