Ice Castle, MN

How I Got the Shot

I have to do work to inspire myself. I think this is real important for photographers to do. If we are always creating images just for our clients then we can get burned out. I get a ton of inspirations out of my personal projects.

These amazing ice caves and structures are built each winter in MN. I wanted to shoot some bridal fashion in a very unique location and I think I accomplished that goal. I used a wide lens so I could show the blue sky coming in high above my model.
