As a lifestyle + wedding photographer, I love getting out of the studio and shooting events – especially the awesome fests that the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild puts on. I had the pleasure of being involved with my second guild event this past weekend at Winterfest in St. Paul, MN at the Union Depot. This was the first year that it was held at the Depot, previously having been held at the Minnesota History Center, adding tickets and space for all to enjoy. 
For those that recognize my name tag, the first thing they ask me at beer festivals is “what are you doing here?” 
It’s a valid question – what is a Duluth wedding photographer doing at a beer festival, with beer in hand, taking my photo? 
I have a very simple answer for them – I support craft beer, I support local breweries.
It might help that my boyfriend is a very handsome, bearded brewer at the Brewhouse in Duluth – craft beer is a huge part of our life together. But regardless, the Guild is doing awesome things for our communities and the education of craft beer for all of Minnesota, so it’s a no-brainer for me. 
Cheers to the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild on another exceptional Winterfest and to all the breweries involved!
