Midwest Based Wedding + Elopement Photographers

read more

We are a husband-wife destination wedding & portrait photography + videography team based out of the frozen tundra of MN.

We are passionate about authentic connections and wild about true love.

We want to work with the dreamers, the lovers, the real and the madly in love. 

You want to know what drives us more than a giant cup of coffee in the morning?  Traveling to new places, documenting stories & sharing adventures with you.

We love the raw, the real, the in between and the wildly authentic.  We want to share those little details that would otherwise go unseen if we weren't there capturing them.

Our clients often say that they love how comfortable they feel around us.  They feel at ease working with us as we blend so seamlessly into their wedding day or session.

Our whirlwind romance started briskly in 2016.  67 days after meeting we said I do and never looked back. 

We love crazy, wild, adventurous love ourselves so that tends to be what we look for in our clients.

"Megan and Alec make a fantastic team! My boyfriend and I had a couples PHOTO SHOOT and they chose a stunning location, were awesome to talk with, and made posing feel completely natural and effortless! Megan is a great communicator and quickly got back to me with answers to questions I had and advice I asked for! I would highly recommend Beyond The Pines to anyone looking for incredible photographers and videographers"

We want to share family memories with you, hear your children giggle, capture those real life moments. 

Lifestyle family sessions are not limited to the great outdoors.  We know it gets cold in MN, so let's go warm up inside.  We can cozy up in your living room next to the fire place, or listen to you tell your children about how you met while you tuck them into bed.  We could even take a trip to target and capture the kids running in the aisles or sipping on their favorite Starbucks kid beverages.

Our personal passion for travel and adventure really helps us create custom swoon worthy sessions for our couples.  We want to hike mountains with you, jump into the ocean, make breakfast in your kitchen and just watch your love story unfold in front of our cameras.   The more kissing and touching, the better!  Show us just how passionate the two of you are for one another.

We are inspired by all of the things that make your story unique and your own.  It does not matter if you have been dating for 6 months or married for 50 years, we want to show you just how beautiful your story truly is.

Team pics

This is the story of your love.  A collaborative story, between you as a couple and us with our cameras.  With a photo-journalistic approach of  your wedding , we will capture all of the candid moments of the day.  We want to make you feel as comfortable as we can throughout the time we spend together.  

Don't be afraid to let your dress hit the ground and get dirty, cry in front of the camera, and laugh until your stomach hurts.

Storytelling Films

Hi there, it's Alec!  I am married to the love of my life.  Outside of my love for cars, coffee and our 4 children, is my love for creating artistic films.  Our biggest regret as a couple is not having someone document our wedding day through video. 

Your love story is awesome and it should be told.  That's where I come in.  I  want to help couples create more than just a wedding film.  I  want to capture the magic throughout your wedding day, the details that are unfolding during one of the most fleeting days of your lives. 

The best moments in life are the ones we least expect.  The candid, raw and riveting. I want to share how your day feels and not just how it looked.  

When you look back 20 years from now I want you to feel the emotions as if they were happening in that moment all over again.
