from humble beginnings...

Family Owned Since 1954

Linhoff Photo was established by husband and wife team Rosalie and Joe Linhoff in 1954 in Edina. Joe was the driving force in photography, while Rosalie had great business savvy. Together they created the first official Kodak color lab in Minneapolis.

Their combined passion and career of photography grew into a local business that still strives to keep the art and community of photography alive, from film and negatives to the latest technology of the 21st century.

Today, our business is diverse, yet still remains true to our roots. Not only are we a well regarded neighborhood shop specializing in full service printing and digitizing of nearly everything.
But we also have a thriving sports, dance, portraiture and event photography division.

And as always our approach is to make the process as seamless and simple for everyone involved. We’re located in St Louis Park
and are just a phone call or email away if help is needed at any point in the process.

A Family Traditon

Operations began in the Linhoff household in Edina but soon things got too busy for customers to be coming through the kitchen at all hours. After not so many years starting, Joe and Rosalie moved the business to the location on 44th and France where it would become an icon of the area.

After many years the brothers, John, Greg, and Jim took over the family establishment and expanded into the space previously occupied by Country Club Dry-Cleaners in 1974.

Jim took full ownership of the business in 2019 and made big changes, including moving the buisiness from it's original location to our present spot on Excelsior Boulevard in St. Louis Park. It was at this time we also adopted the Print Refinery as a co-brand.

In 2022, the business passed outside the Linhoff family for the first time when it was bought by Matt Vollum. Since taking the helm, Matt has been working hard to innovate and streamline many of our processes while still keeping the local, personal touch that our customers have come to expect.
