“Adam and Mary Beth have insane talent, and we feel so fortunate to have gotten to meet and work with them on our wedding day. Right from the start, communication was a breeze. We planned our wedding in MN while living in the Bay Area, and each email and face time session felt like we were just checking in with old friends. They alleviated so much of the stress I had surrounding the day, and they helped tremendously with building a timeline that orchestrated the getting ready portion of the wedding. Words do not describe how well Adam captured the love and happiness in photographs. We just feel so fortunate to have met such an amazing couple, and even luckier that they shared their amazing talent with us.”

Maria & Eric, The Minneapolis Club wedding September 2016


“Adam and Mary Beth were absolutely outstanding in every way possible, not to mention, we even got our wedding photos earlier than expected! We are so lucky to have had such an incredible, fun and talented team to help capture our special day. We loved getting to know them (and Callie) throughout the process leading up to our wedding and can’t thank them enough for the memories we will cherish forever. They absolutely had a huge hand in helping our day go smoothly and stress-free and our photos blew us away beyond belief! We have and will continue to recommend Adam and Mary Beth to everyone we know, we are so grateful to have had the chance to work with them both.”

Taylor & JP, Ruttgers Bay Lake Lodge wedding May 2016


“Adam is not only an incredible photographer, he is an amazing person! He asked us questions to get to know us personally and what we wanted for our engagement and wedding photos. We were able to choose the locations for our engagement photo session, ensuring that our personalities were reflected. Mary Beth is also super organized, ensuring that we knew what was happening through prompt responses to our questions. Our wedding day was relaxed, in part because of Adam’s talent – we were not concerned at all about the photographer! Adam has an infectious laughter and sense of calm about him that infused the wedding party as we were taking pictures. Everyone who has seen our pictures has remarked on how talented Adam is! He captured our wedding so beautifully – all of the precious, natural moments that occurred. I would recommend Adam and Mary Beth to everyone as they are a true pleasure to work with and great friends.”

Susie & Alex, Bloom Lake Barn wedding August 2016


“I really can’t say enough about Mary Beth and Adam! In shopping for a photographer, my husband and I only had the expectation that the final photos would look outstanding – Mary Beth and Adam achieved that and MUCH more. From day one they made us feel at ease and comfortable. Living in Chicago, they asked to setup Skype sessions with us, which was great to get to know them before the big day. They were so easy to work with, too. We had a huge wedding party (20 people) so we had a lot of shots to get through on the wedding day. Thanks to their planning and preparation, we made it through all of the shots in the allotted times set, and the entire day flowed so smoothly. Not only did Adam and Mary Beth accomplish their job as photographers that day, but they were a blast to be around all day long. We had so much fun with them. We just got our photos back – and they look AMAZING!!!!! Simply incredible. What I love most are the moments Adam found to capture (laughter, tears, hugs, speeches, etc.). I’d book Adam Kennedy 100 times over.”

-Audrey & Matt, Lafayette Club Wedding September 2016


“Choosing a photographer was super important to me and the number one thing on my list. Adam and Mary Beth were the clear choice and are some of the coolest people – you want to hang out with them on your wedding day! We started planning our wedding while we were still living in Arizona. The initial communication was fantastic. We booked them after just having a conversation with Adam on the phone. Very easy people to talk to and really fun. Not to mention Adam makes some mean cocktails – I recommend his Spicy Margarita. Throughout the planning process they were accommodating, personable, and not just a vendor – they truly take the time to get to know each and everyone of their clients, which makes working with them and having them there on the wedding day that much more special! Now the photos – UNREAL. We were beyond happy with Adam’s photography for both our engagement photos and wedding pictures. Not only did he capture the special intimate moments between my husband and me, but also all the parts of the wedding that we were unable to witness first hand like our guests conversing at cocktail hour, playing games, and having a good time. He made us feel comfortable around the camera. Our wedding party was super impressed how efficient they worked and the moments they captured. He was able to rally people when needed for the wedding party photos/ family pictures, but then during the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, speeches – we hardly even noticed they were around. Well worth the investment and highly recommended!!!”

-Carmen & Tony, Mississippi Gardens wedding, August 2016


“Adam was everything I wanted in a photographer. I knew after seeing our engagement session pictures that I made the right decision and that our wedding pictures would be perfect. He has a great personality and does a fantastic job with making everyone in the wedding party feel comfortable so the pictures look really natural (& not forced). I really appreciated that his wife Mary Beth was around to help keep track of what shots we still had to take and she made a point to get them in before the end of the night (shots with our readers and hosts that could have been missed). After the ceremony it was like he was invisible but was able to capture some great moments and things I didn’t even realize were happening. Perfect. I was super pleased. The price point is a bit more than other vendors I saw but it truly wasn’t a question of whether or not we’d go with Adam and I have ZERO regrets with doing it. I love all of our pictures and we received so many compliments on how they turned out.”

– Christie & Bryan, The Wilds Golf Club wedding July 2016


“My husband and I loved working with Adam & Mary Beth! We got married on one of the hottest and windiest days and they were absolute saints to work with. It was so nice to know they had everything under control and I didn’t have to worry about missing any “must-have” photos. Our photos turned out AMAZING and I would recommend them to everyone!”

-Josh & Emily – Dellwood Barn Wedding June 2016


“Incredible! Simply the best! The only thing to consider once you meet Adam and see his work is how quickly you can get him booked for your event. Otherwise, he is the complete package when it comes to finding the perfect photographer for you. He’s a gem of a guy to work with,full of energy and excitement. He made us end everyone among our friends and families feel at ease in front of the camera. Our pictures are marvelous. We had so much fun looking through all of them, laughing (and crying) with joy remembering each moment that he captured so perfectly.”

– Blaine & Molly – Downtown Minneapolis Wedding September 2016


“Hands down the best Wedding Photographer in Minneapolis, MN. To be honest, my fiance, was nervous when choosing a male as our Wedding Day Photographer. But after speaking with Adam and Mary Beth Kennedy then interviewing 4 other Photographers… We picked them. We picked them because they were the only ones that really seemed to truely care about us, our needs and seemed to be flexible/cool with whatever we were going to want. Then we got our Engagement pics back and they were amazing. Adam’s pictures made us look like Models in a Magazine. That’s what we were literally told by several family members. We felt like we got our moneys worth for the entire Wedding Package in those Engagement Pictures. Out of everything we spent our money on for our wedding, Adam pictures was the best money we spent. Reasons Why We Love Adam Kennedy Photography -Save the Dates – Our save the dates turned out amazing. We used the black and white images Adam gave us and they looked so classy. -Website – We built a website that looked amazing only due to the pictures taken during our engagement session, www.groffdreesenwedding.com -Facebook pre-wedding posts – We used Adam’s awesome pics on Facebook leading up to the wedding and felt like a lot of distant relatives sent gifts because we looked so good. -Blown-up Wall Canvas – We bought a couple of these for our walls at home and they look so amazing thanks to the high resolution images Adam provides. My Wife and I highly recommend Adam. He’s a cool down to earth guy that is fun to just hang out with. He truly made our wedding day epic, fun and memorable.”

– James & Kerri – Hazeltine Wedding July 2015


“Adam and Mary Beth are the BEST!! They are such great people and so easy to work with that they made getting photos taken fun and a total breeze. We love everything about our wedding day photos; they captured how happy we were that day and how much fun we and all of our guests had. We’re still looking at the pictures daily and trying to pick our favorites.”

– Becca & Derick – Minneapolis Wedding May 2016


“We could not be happier with the experience we had with Adam and Mary Beth. Leading up to our wedding, the photography was the least of our worries as Adam ensured us that every detail would be taken care of. We found it easy to trust in Adam and Mary Beth’s experience and talent. And their personalities fit right in with our wedding party and family, making for a fun, stress-free experience. After receiving our photos of our wedding day, it amazed us at how Adam was able to capture every moment and every emotion of our wedding day. Adam’s artistic talent is unmatched and quality and professionalism is top notch. We are lucky to call Adam and Mary Beth family, and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you!”

-Nick & Savannah – Vail, Colorado June 2015


“Adam and Mary Beth were exactly what we wanted and needed for our wedding photography. They worked so well with us and our families; they were polite, unbelievably efficient, and relaxed yet FUN!  When I realized I didn’t know how to bustle my dress, Mary Beth did it 🙂 When it rained, and our plans for photos outside were disrupted, they found a way to make the back of our venue into a beautiful backdrop. And when it stopped raining, we got some fantastic photos in the woods!

We are stunned by our photos. They seem to effortlessly capture our most beautiful, intimate, candid, and silly moments. We will absolutely use Adam Kennedy Photography again for more photos, and my sister has booked them for her wedding as well. I can’t believe they somehow delivered exactly what I wanted. I honestly feel blessed for the talent and kindness that was exhibited in their work with us. Thank you!”

~Britta and Patrick, Minneapolis Wedding May 2015


“We could not be happier to have met (and quickly hired) Adam Kennedy Photography!

Our engagement and wedding photos are truly incredible. We still receive compliments from many of our family and friends – not only on the high quality of our photos, but on the professionalism of Adam and Mary Beth. The planning process was smooth and easy. They took the time to get to know us personally and confirm each and every detail in advance. On our big day, they made everyone feel very relaxed and comfortable, which you can clearly see in everyone’s smiles. Even our church wedding coordinator said he was one of the most organized and respectful photographers she has ever met (and I am sure she has met a few)!

We truly enjoyed getting to know Adam and Mary Beth and we look forward to hiring AKP again in the future!”

-Jaimie & Jason, Minneapolis Wedding August 2014


“Pictures have always been important to me, I love looking back and remembering life’s events. I knew that I really wanted someone who was genuine, caring and fun (not to mention extremely talented) to take our pictures. I am so happy that I came across Adam Kennedy Photography!! For 11 hours on my wedding day I had two photographers, and Adam’s wife Mary Beth assisting and making my day great! I was absolutely grateful to have them, and their knowledge around! The entire day was a blast, and they were extremely flexible with the schedule when I got sick and pictures had to be taken out of order.

Then came the images themselves!! I was in awe – and in tears – looking at the beauty that was captured. I have a photo essay of my day that captured things that sailed right past my radar.

Pictures are expensive, but knowing what I know now – if I went back into the past I’d happily pay a couple thousand more for the experience and quality of pictures that Adam Kennedy Photography provided!

When I show people the highlights of the wedding photos, everyone is gobsmacked. Many people openly admit that Adam’s artistry and skill came out in the pictures – and I’ve been told by at least 50% of my friends that my pictures came out better than anything they have EVER SEEN before… Amazing skill, and talent. Please do not hesitate – go to his website – if you like the photography book him!!! You won’t regret it!”

Saralyn & Eric, Wedding August 2014


“Adam is truly talented at what he does. He has such an eye for artistic photos, but also let us try out whatever we wanted. Looking through his albums, it is clear that he gets to know each couple personally and tries to give them photos that show their personalities rather than trying to fit their wedding into what he wants it to be. He was directive, but not bossy, and he is just so easy going, helping us relax and be ourselves. When I look at our pictures, I feel like I can relive our wedding day perfectly. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to capture their wedding day on their terms instead of someone else’s. We received our photos promptly and we were impressed with how professional he and his wife, Mary Beth, were.”

Robin & Brent, Wedding September 2014


“Adam Kennedy does amazing work! Leading up to the wedding they were so on top of every detail! Coming from someone who likes to be organized it was perfect, because they were always one step ahead of us. They often checked in to see if we needed anything, which was very comforting. As the big day approached Adam was so relaxed and really made sure we were having fun! He made the photo sessions go by so quickly, because he was so easy going and our wedding party was loving it! I never noticed him during the ceremony or even reception, because he knew where to be at what time, so that it wasn’t a distraction. When we received our photos back, we were so thrilled!! Every single picture he took was phenomenal and we felt as if we were reliving every moment of our day when we looked through them, We are still receiving comments from our wedding party, family and guests about how awesome the photos are! Our wedding party has also commented on how fun it was to have him as a photographer and that they have never been in a wedding where the photographer was such a huge part of making that day go smoothly and where the photographer was really engaged in conversations and making things FUN! I am so happy that we chose Adam Kennedy photography and I would highly recommend his services for anyone who wants to make sure their special day is captured. He also took our engagement photos and those are just as wonderful!”

-Jon & Lauren, Wedding November 2014


“I was asking for recommendations from colleagues at work on Photographers because my now wife and myself had no clue how to start the process. A colleague recommended Adam very highly because of the quality of his work and personality. My wife and myself looked at his website and instantly knew that “He gets it!”. So we scheduled a meet and greet with Adam and his wife/office manager. After spending about 10 minutes chatting with them at their place and playing with their dog. We knew that this dynamic duo were the ones. From day one they made us feel like our “Big Day” was all about us and no one else. The quality of the Engagement pictures and Wedding day pictures can not be matched. Adam and his wife caught every moment of our wedding day that we wanted and more!

Even our friends and family can not stop complimenting the beautiful moments on that day.

Overall we did not just hire an awesome photographer but we gained some amazing friends in the end. We can not wait to have an occasion to use them again.”

Daniel & Rachel, Bloomington Wedding September 2014


“Adam was AMAZING – Here is just one example: I forgot to pick up my wedding dress at Macy’s before my wedding day (yep, that’s not a typo, small oversight on my part) and Adam literally DROVE me from the salon in his car and brought me to Macy’s to pick it up and took pictures the whole time; he then drove me back to Lake Harriett where we were meeting the groom and the entire bridal party. We beat everyone there! It was hilarious! On the entire day, he was creative (dance party on the golf course) flexible (crashed a Guthrie Music Festival with the groomsmen) caring (got teary wishing us congrats on the day) TONS of great energy and simply an awesome guy. Loved our experience from start to finish. We are now friends with Adam and everyone who has seen my wedding photos say that they are the best ever!”

Jessica Mueller, Wedding September 2010


“Adam is simply one of the most talented photographers in the Cities today. We couldn’t imagine a better experience or a better final product. You will not be disappointed!”

Julie & Christian – senior and family portraits 2014


“Adam and Mary Beth were awesome. We loved every minute of working with them. They definitely pulled off the highly sought photographer who gets all the right shots yet seemed to blend into the shadows like a ninja. They’re both really fun people and you can tell that they love what they do. The passion for their craft really comes out in the pictures they take and the final product they deliver. My now wife has said multiple times now that Adam and Mary Beth will be our “forever photographers”.”

Erica & Allen – Minnetonka Wedding 9/14/2013


“Adam did such an amazing job with our engagement and wedding pictures. He allows you to be yourself, while keeping the energy and fun alive. He is very natural, real, and passionate about photography. I would recommend Adam Kennedy to anyone who is looking for insanely great pictures at a reasonable price.”

Kailee & Chase – Buffalo, MN Wedding 8/17/2013


“Adam was fantastic–so communicative and responsive throughout the planning process. The day of our wedding, he had scouted photo locations and had excellent ideas for shots, and he kept everyone super relaxed and happy throughout. He worked so well with the flow of our day that it felt like we never even had to pause for photos, and the pix all turned out so fun and so authentic. It was excellent to have Adam there to share our day with us.”

– Theresa Bruckner – San Francisco Wedding, 8/2./2013


“Hallie and I were thrilled with every part of our experience with Adam. Fun, professional, creative, and gifted are words I would use to describe Adam’s photography. He was flexible, enjoyable to be around, and willing to do whatever it took to make sure we had what we wanted on our wedding day. He captured the moments we had so accurately and we will enjoy them for years to come. I would highly recommend Adam Kennedy Photography for any of your photography needs.”

-Lee Hanssen – Miami Wedding 5/11/2013


“We were so happy with our wedding photography and Adam’s service and continue to get amazing compliments on our photos. We couldn’t be any happier with our choice to go with Adam and he is so easy to get along with and made us feel so comfortable and natural in a way that really brought out our personalities in the photos. Plus he’s such a great guy not to mention super talented at what he does! We couldn’t recommend him any more thanks again for capturing our day so wonderfully.”

– Emily and Max  – Minneapolis Wedding 7/7/2012


“Booking Adam Kennedy for my wedding photography was probably the best decision I made for my wedding.  He is professional, a great guy, and a quality photographer.  He captured the moments of my wedding in such a beautiful way, and I treasure all the photographs.  My family and friends gushed (and still gush, even a year later) about how fantastic the pictures turned out.  Adam really brings out the personality of a couple in his shots, and he made sure to get all of the traditional photos I asked for in addition to the more modern, relaxed bridal photos.  Truly one of the best!  I’ve been a bridesmaid in a couple weddings this summer, and none of my friends’ photos turned out like mine from Adam.  Finding him was a blessing. ”

– Lauren Orf – Chicago Wedding 8/27/2011


“Adam did such a great job with both our engagement photos and our wedding day pictures!  He is so personable and fun, we had a great time with him!  He did a great job capturing the “fun” and “secret” moments!”

– Danielle Whitney – Minneapolis Wedding 5/27/2012


“Not only did we have a blast with Adam and enjoy our engagement session photos, Adam was our photographer at our wedding in September 2012.  We gave him no direction for what we wanted and let him do his thing.  He needed no direction…our photos turned out GREAT!  He captured everything we could have wanted, and more!  He also worked well with out dogs…NOT an easy task!:)  In addition to his amazing photography skills, I don’t think we could have picked a better personality for our wedding party.  He fit right in and was an absolute blast!  He rolled with the punches, threw in his own jokes and comments, and added to the fun and excitement of our day.   Our entire wedding party had so much fun having him around, which made it easier to spend an entire day being photographed. I HIGHLY recommend Adam Kennedy Photography!!”

-Heather Anton – Minneapolis Wedding 9/28/2012


“Adam Kennedy is an amazing talent!  The pics he captured on our wedding day were, well, amazing.  We have gotten countless compliments on our photos and could not have been happier.  However, probably the best part about working with Adam is his awesome, go with the flow (yet structured), creative energy and personality.  We had the utmost confidence in Adam which made for a very stress-free experience.  My husband and I consider Adam a friend now and would recommend him to everyone.  We heart Adam!”

-Andriana Roth – Minneapolis Wedding 4/21/2012


“The collection of photos we have from sessions with Adam over the years are absolutely priceless.  He has captured our girls personalities perfectly. I’m so grateful for he and Mary Beth’s fun personalities because they get my kids comfortable behind the lens.  I am so happy knowing that I have a professionally documented record of how my kids change each year. ”
