MINNEAPOLIS MN. EMOTIONAL WEDDING

Kelli + Craig took a route out of Minneapolis all the way down to Henderson MN, where their venue sat on a crazy amount of acreage - but it wasn't nearly enough for their party crowd.

They were definitely here for a good time - between t...

HIBBING MN. ANDROY HOTEL

Dena and Marc chose a venue in the city they were both from - Hibbing MN. The Androy Hotel is a hotel building full of charm and elegance and warmth. But those feelings doubled on the day these two got married there - because their relationship...

DULUTH, MN. HOOPS BREWING WEDDING

Family photos with less than 10 people. The absence of a bridal party. Candids of guests who are so freaking happy. The best bridal aisle ever. Hanging out in the brewing area of the brewery, just because. "Our DJ is leaving in two hour...

What started as a jalapeno juice shot while hanging out with friends, grew into something much bigger. The thing Teri + Colton love most about each other is the way they always want to create pure fun and laughter when together. Colton even told me, "I knew from the st...

Having the Minneapolis International Airport in my backyard, I've gotten pretty good at traveling. But even more so, I've gotten great at traveling for long periods of time in ONE backpack. I'm not a huge fan of airline baggage fees - I'd rather spend that money on an...

I first met Chantel and Nolan by photographing their proposal at Amnicon Falls State Park last October. When they started to plan out their Madison area wedding, I was thrilled to hear from them again - and to take part in their engagement session.

These two are the rea...

Engagement sessions are kind of actually the best thing ever. You get to run around and play and wear natural clothing and just be you for a while, and you end up with some rad photographs from it. But some people find themselves more stressed than anticipated - the la...

Often times the biggest thing missing from wedding days is peace. A sense of calmness. Wedding days can become such a stressful coordination of things that people forget the bigger picture of the day. So what are some things you can do to combat that?

1. Choose an inten...

Traveling to the Minneapolis area for Emily + Austin's engagement session was so much more than I imagined it would be. Their White Bear Lake home is literally the cutest thing EVER - only second to their dogs who definitely know how to have a good time.

With Emily fres...

After many years together and a little one in their home, Jess + Brian finally decided that now was the time. So after calling Emily of Lace and Brass Events (and after a few ridiculously excited shrilly emails later) we had the most gorgeous adventure elopement all pl...

It's that time of the year where everyone is posting their 2018 yearly recaps. Their favorite images. Their Instagram top 9. Everybody is self-reflecting and you probably think I'm one of them.

Jokes on you, I started writing this post at the start of September.

But for...

"Have you photographed our venue before?"

There's a lot of wedding sites that list this as an essential question to ask your photographer - and I really disagree on its importance.

Have you ever walked into a new building (new to you at least) and been struck with awe at...

Emotional wedding toasts. Gorgeous ivy + greenery. Barefoot sunset portraits.

These are a few of my favorite things.

There are moments in life that just stop you in your tracks, and revealing these images to Madeline was one of them. It's a hard 4 minutes as the presentation plays where I'm trying to figure out if the nerves and fears of the viewer have faded yet. 

And then the eyes s...

October 27th was a big, scary, exciting, fearless, day. A group of women came into my rental studio for boudoir sessions and there was little me, dressed in leggings and a pug t-shirt, about to photograph them in an emotional, intimate way. And while I did personally k...
