hannah // minneapolis portrait photographer

8.21.2013

hannah. oh boy. where do i start? well, okay, so i met her in 4th grade. she went to my church. she left after 5th. i guess i was never really friends with her, but i definitely knew her. fast forward a few years and i discover she has a blog. so i follow it. this inspires me to start one of my own. okay so this blogging thing is fun. ladeedah. more years pass. now she's into photography. whoa. so am i. more years more years and bam we hit today. she's a professional wedding photographer and i'm on my way. guys. this girl inspires me. her love for God. for family. for relationships. for photography. all of it.

that's why when we were able to meet up a few weeks ago i got really excited. our time was short. and limited to the space of the back room of a coffee shop. but it was amazing to watch her create. we took turns pointing the camera at each other. catching up on the last six years we've spent apart. she struck me as a little quiet, crazy compassionate, and every bit intentional with what she was creating.

i walked away excited to edit. and even more excited to see what hannah had created in the last hour. texting each other back and forth: POST MORE PREVIEWS GIRL. a few days later, i received the whole batch of photos. ohmygoodness this girl can photograph. cannot wait for her to post them. seriously dying over them. for realz.

and this is what i created. some of my best work, if i do say so myself. :) enjoy.

  3. These are quite possibly the best things in existence of forever. She looks a lot like Fiona Apple (especially in the 3rd picture from the bottom). You are magnificent, Alex :)
