During this era of Covid-19, we have a new understanding of how precious life is and the treasures that are our families are to us. Rochester Mom’s hope is that this list of Rochester MN area photographers will make it easier for families to find a photographer for all of their photography needs.

Marit Williams Photography

Marit Williams Photography - Rochester MN Guide to Photographers | Rochester Mom

I love capturing the fleeting moments. As a mother myself, I know they come and go all too quickly. Those first few years of your child’s life, yearly portraits of your growing family and all the memorable milestones between – are here and gone before we know it. And that’s where I come in. I want to capture those moments, bottle them up and allow you to savor them now and in the future. I love shooting in locations where you shine – somewhere natural, simple and effortless. Somewhere that warms your soul and allows your family to be the focus.

Marit Williams is a wedding and family photographer serving the Rochester and Minneapolis, MN area. Contact Marit to learn more about her packages, availability and to discuss your family photography vision.

Hey there! I’m Bri, a natural light photographer with a studio in downtown Rochester. Focusing on intimate portraiture, and those real, magical in-between moments. The ones that, if you blink, you might miss. Combining my love of light and seeing those unique personal connections is what I think brings my work to life.
I really love to illustrate your journey and offer a variety of sessions to make that happen: family, maternity, birth stories, postpartum, and boudoir.
Switching my main focus from weddings to the story of you as a person, a mother, father, your family & beyond- I can’t wait to see what unfolds for you!

I have been in the photography game since 2012, and truly love my job! After receiving a diploma in photography, I have gone on to photograph 100+ weddings, as well as countless newborn, maternity, senior, modeling, engagement, and family sessions. What excites me is capturing your most candid moments, where you can look back and feel your love, laughter and emotion in the photos that I have taken. Minnesota has such beautiful landscape that makes for amazing photography backdrops, but if the outdoors isn’t your style, I have an in home studio for you to come visit for your session. Can’t wait to potentially work with you!

A senior photo session should involve more than just taking a few good photos; it should capture genuine expressions and convey exactly who your senior is at this moment in time.  And just as important, it should be an experience for both parents and seniors to look back on fondly. Together let’s plan the perfect session for your senior… one that will ultimately tell their unique story.
