Welcome and congrats! We got married Sept 2017 and have been down the wedding planning road...which even documenting 100+ weddings still didn't prepare us for! Trust me, when I say I "get it" I totally do. Its such a exciting time and one of the biggest milestones in your lifetime. 

We are so blessed to have a career to give the gift of memories. With all the unknown variables of a wedding day we take many steps to expect the unexcpected by preparing our couples prior to the big day! Our client portal provides tools to reduce wedding day stress.
We have prepared planning guides, checklists and more helpful tools of what we have learned from the past 5 years in the wedding industry. A client portal is complimentary for all our brides with these tools.

Beyond impressed by both Kristina and Jake Handergard. These two are amazing professionals as well as people. I was overjoyed to find out that they could take photos for us in Detroit Lakes, MN for our wedding and engagement photos in Stillwater, MN. I grew up in the Twin Cities, so it was important to me to have photos in both places I consider home. Our engagement photos were beautiful and posted less than 24 hours from taking them, fully edited too! Kristina was willing to take photos of our then puppy during this time and walk through the woods for photos. She is a trooper! The wedding day was behind schedule... as somethings are out of our control as Brides. None the less, Kristina and Jake calmed my nerves and worries and were still able to capture photos as well as videos on our day. Preview photos were sent two days after our wedding day, which just shows how hard they work to please their customers. Kristina and Jake are extremely creative and talented individuals who are fun to work with. Kristina also helped me create the wedding day timeline, which was extremely helpful and something that many businesses do not do. We were so lucky to have Morningside Weddings apart of our special day and wish them the best as they continue to rock it in the photography and videography business. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Having Morningside Weddings as our photographer/videographer was one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process! Kristina and Jake were so laid-back and great to work with - they helped us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. They gave us guidance and advice throughout the day in order to capture the best moments! Awesome people to work with and they take beautiful photos and videos! Also, they thought of every detail possible and allowed us to give input on the types of photos we wanted for both traditional posed photos and candid shots. We absolutely will be recommending Morningside Weddings to anyone who is in search of photo/video services! Plus, they were able to use a drone to capture moments for our wedding video - how awesome is that?! :)

Kristina and Jake were a wonderful team to work with for our engagement pictures and for our wedding! They were flexible with our schedules when doing our engagement pictures. They were very helpful when getting all the final details ready for the wedding. I really liked having the portal to help with all the little details and make sure I would be ready come wedding day! I didn't have to worry about a thing with these guys, they were so much fun to have at our wedding and can't wait to see the rest of our pictures and video!:)

We have only had our engagement pictures and immediately in love! Kristina and Jake went out of their way to come to my fiance's welcome home from being deployed overseas. They were so flexible and so helpful! Plans and timing change so much with military and they were great adapting to all of the information and location changes! We did a traditional engagement session after he returned home and they made us feel so comfortable, that we could be ourselves. We received some previews that same evening and were immediately in love! Just received the remainder of our engagement pictures last night - received so many comments about how beautiful they were and how great the editing is. Natural and modern - exactly what we were looking for! 


Where to begin... Kristina did an awesome job on our engagement session and from the pictures they have shared of our wedding Kristina & Jake nailed it! Not only do they do an amazing job but they are fun and easy to work with. I honestly had NO STRESS at planning with Morningside Weddings, Kristina is super helpful and organized! We couldn't be more satisfied with Morningside Weddings. We will definitely be using them again in the future for our other photography needs!

I am so happy I found this group to work with for my wedding. From the moment we booked them, they have kept in contact with us and made the experience truly personal. Through the planning stages Kristina set up a concept board to explore our style and understand what we wanted. We took engagement pictures in November and they turned out BEAUTIFUL and we always get wonderful comments. Kristina was so awesome at offering posing directions during the shoot and made us feel so comfortable. She even had sneak-peeks up within hours and our whole download album finished and ready that week! It was incredible and we can't thank Morningside Weddings enough for all the hard work and personalization they do.

Ok Brides, Morningside Weddings is a MUST. Kristina and Jake are easy to work with, super responsive and reasonably priced. Bonus they do both photography and video!!

     Another reason to book this duo is their attention to detail, Kristina is so passionate about how the picture will look she takes her time to make sure it looks perfect, I really appreciated this factor because my mind was so foggy the day of my wedding... I was everywhere happiness and joy. Kristina made sure I got all the pictures I wanted.
