The Essence Event Center Wedding | Jonna + AJ

Jonna and AJ’s Essence Event Center Wedding last summer was a stunning day! I was so looking forward to photographing at this new Minneapolis wedding venue, and getting to work with Availed weddings and events for this special day!

For the first look, we decided to have them in the back of the venue in the courtyard where the ceremony would take place just a few hours later. From there, we traveled to Como Park, one of my favorite areas for portraits in the East metro, for all of the portraits! These are some of my favorite portraits from the entire year. Jonna and AJ’s bridal party members were troopers in the heat and full sun.

One of my favorite things from their day was how they showcased their dog, Kona, throughout the day!

Marriage looks good on these two, congratulations to the newlyweds!

I'm Brooke.

hello, there!

You will never regret taking the time to find the perfect photographer to capture all the details of your family in a way that feels like a true representation of who you are. Photos are, after all, the only thing you have to remember your moments by. As for me, I’m a believer that moments big and small are worth photographing, from your maternity moments and baby’s first year to those just-because moments.

captured with LOVE.

Incomparable photos,
