Instagram celebrates its 5th birthday this week. Last weekend, they honored the milestone with their 12th World Wide Instameet Weekend. Our Minneapolis Instagram crew descended upon the St. Croix River Valley for an epic day of taking photos, meeting new people, and enjoying beautiful sights.

Our Community

In addition to Instagram’s big anniversary, our local Instagram group celebrated 1-yr since the official formation of @Minnstameets, a hub for meet-ups in Minneapolis and throughout the state. As one of the founders of Minnstameets, I am extremely proud of the community it has grown into. Anyone is welcome to join us and we have people from all walks of life attend our events.

Our meetup this weekend held in partnership with Explore Minnesota Tourism - #WWIM12_MN - was no exception and drew many talented photographers. Below are a five up people who are doing creative and exciting work whose portraits I was able to capture during the Instameet - check them out!


This was Miles’ first-ever Instameet and he immediately clicked with other participants (pun intended). AND, he earned a lot of cred by being one of few photographers in attendance who shoots primarily with film!
