A few weeks ago I met up with William & Katie to do a promotional photoshoot for their business, Oh Dier. Not only is this couple extremely photogenic, they are also over the top creative. By day, they are an architect and an editor, and by night, they manage their growing business. Based in Minnesota, these two create some of the coolest home decor around. Vintage inspired wooden signs, funky wooden toys, photographs from their travels, and unique graphic prints fill their online store. Even long before I did this shoot, I purchased a wooden bird and butterfly print from their etsy shop, both of which I absolutely adore. Recently, we had the chance to collaborate again when William beautifully crafted a custom made sign for our space at Make it Grand (pics of that coming soon!). When they contacted me to do an urban themed shoot to get promotional photographs for their new web site, I was thrilled!! Oh Dier’s wooden signs have many purposes, not only can they be used to decorate your home or office, they would make great decor for weddings or other celebrations which can then be hung in your home after the event! They can customize the pieces in the color of your choice, so incorporating your wedding colors into your artwork is a breeze.
Be sure to check out the Oh Dier web site to see more of their work (I promise you will want to add many items to your cart—I know I do!). Gene’o & I are planning in the process of buying a new home and we can’t wait to commission these guys for some funky artwork. When I was getting photos ready for their blog post I seriously wanted to post them all, but I was able to narrow it down to a few favorites to share here. Enjoy! William and Katie gifted us one of these super AWESOME block bots! I love this little guy! He is sitting on a shelf in our living room, and someday I am going to add another one to my collection as well :) After we had some fun around downtown St. Paul, we headed up to Dayton's Bluff for some sunset photos. I got to play around with different lighting techniques. I'm glad we made it up there because these are some of my faves! This photo is one of my absolute favorite photos that I’ve ever taken! The light, the expressions, the grasses—just everything about it makes me happy :) Thanks again for inviting me to photograph you guys! You both rock and I can’t wait to see your business grow :)
