Minnesota Based Wedding + Elopement Photographers

read more

We are a husband-wife wedding photography + videography team based out of Minnesota.

You must be here because you love tacos, coffee or even tequila!  And if you aren't, are you truly even living?!?!  But really, there must be something about us or our work that you just loved.  So thanks for being here. 

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

We want to work with the dreamers, the lovers, the real and the madly in love. Those of you that have travel in your hearts, because we are totally down to go anywhere with you!

If you are ready to let your hair down, get that dress or those shoes covered in some dirt and adventure anywhere in the world, then we are totally going to be best friends.  

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.

about us

Our whirlwind romance started briskly in 2016.  67 days after meeting we said I do and never looked back.  We love to jump in the car and just drive, we are total dorks that will laugh until we cry over our uncoordinated dance moves and bad jokes!

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

our story


Traveling to new places
Date nights that consist of eating tacos or pizza
Lazy mornings fueled by coffee 
Road trippin' across the US
Being parents to 4 awesome little humans
Real connections
Phone calls vs texting
Late nights spent editing side by side and talking all things life and business together
& of course a little skinny dippin' never hurt anyone.

"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.  

*Travel fees may apply dependent on location

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 beautiful and it should be shared.  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.  I want to freeze time with every tear & every smile. 

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.
