I thought I’d start with these three–they’re way cuter than I am! Violet, Graham, and Penelope, my three little loves. And I’m Jeff (Kesterson). Pursuing light and life, whether through photography, or in dipping my feet into narrative filmmaking, or through dolly dress-up time with Violet and Penny and Nintendo games with Graham.

I got my start in weddings and portraits while adventuring in San Francisco, and nearly ten years and several hundred weddings later, you’ll find me happy here in Minneapolis. It’s truly a pleasure to be invited into people’s lives, to capture glimpses of the love and joy they’re creating.

My work has been recognized here and abroad, online in such places as Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Wedding Chicks, and in publications such as MSP Weddings, The Knot, and Minnesota Bride.

And now I’d love to hear more about you!

(Many thanks to my talented friend Ryan Stadler for the portrait of me.)
