Emerald Rue is a storytelling brand. Full sessions are up to three hours long. I tell the stories of families through films and photographs in a documentary approach. Another of my favorite times to shoot in Minnesota is sunset photography sessions.
Every fall, Emerald Rue offers shorter sessions that give families posed, portrait style images with a few documentary images mixed in. Sessions are 45 minutes long, include 25 still images for digital download and the option to add a Moving Portrait (a mini-video). I love that most of my clients add the Moving Portrait, as there is magic to seeing the moving images as time passes.
The year 2020 was an unusual one. As you know, with a pandemic, masks were present, distance was kept and no hugs were given. When it came to my Minnesota sunset photography sessions, locations were varied. It was necessary for them to be outdoors and sessions took place on a boat, in parks, in backyards and even deserted gravel roads!
I’m grateful that my clients made the most of it! Thank you to all my clients who participated. I look forward to doing it all again next year (and the year after that and so on!).
One think I love is getting feedback after I deliver galleries. From Courtney, All of these photos are AMAZING JEN!! I can’t decide which ones to frame!
From Masada, Oh. My goodness I am in love! The video is absolutely beautiful and the pictures turned out so well! You captured his spirit and his energy. Thank you!
In no particular order, please enjoy an image from each session.
