GOOSEBERRY FALLS MN, DULUTH MN ELOPEMENT

This story doesn't start easy - it starts with pulling into Palisade Head and being bombarded with fog so thick you couldn't see the lake, let alone the cliffs. Kendra had her heart set on a North Shore location and loved the cli...

PALISADE HEAD ELOPEMENT, NORTH SHORE MN ELOPEMENT

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...

December 30, 2018

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...

GREAT SAND DUNES NATIONAL PARK, NATIONAL PARK ENGAGEMENT

There's really no words that describe the feelings that I had while on my trip to Colorado. First, there was the fact that I was literally on a plane heading to Colorado to photograph the most fun-loving couple I'...

MILWAUKEE WI WEDDING, THE ATRIUM MKE WEDDING

Some couples are in love, and then some couple just make it and surround the world with it. Liz + Calesta share the most rich back story I've ever heard, and that really was obvious through their entire event and the way ever...

NEW YORK, NY ENGAGEMENT, CENTRAL PARK ENGAGEMENT SESSION

When I started chatting with Andrea + Matt about their session in NYC, I knew I had to jump on board the Central Park bandwagon. It is unbelievable just how freaking gorgeous this green space within the city is, a...

JAY COOKE STATE PARK ENGAGEMENT, CARLTON MN ENGAGEMENT

From both loving the outdoors to have the same favorite swear word, these two are a perfect match. We hiked through Jay Cooke (their first time!) and for real, the scenery there gets me every freaking time.

If they w...

DULUTH MN, DULUTH MN WEDDING

Sometimes you meet a couple for the first time and you realize they just make sense. Everything about their event seems to be just screaming who they are, and that would be this one.

Angel contacted me a mere 6 days before their event. They w...

No, it wasn't an accident. I left it there on purpose.

These types of images are typically declared "unfit" by the usual photographer when they're removing the bad images from your gallery. And that's not in bad taste: for some people, that just isn't their vision, and...

May 20, 2018

If you're on Instagram at all, you've probably noticed that one of the updates has been to add "stories", which are little photos and videos you post that disappear after 24 hours. They are frequently used for people to give updates, post dog photos (guilty), and a lot...

"Can we have the raw files?"

Ah, the raw question. Asked by many couples only because some fabulous wedding blog suggested it was important, or defined as a life-or-death decision between photographers. But misconceptions about RAW files are freakin' everywhere, and it'...

This blog post has been a long time coming, and I'm so excited about it.

So at the start of every wedding season, I assess my gear and make a list of things I want to purchase. I also assess my "uniform" when it comes to event day clothing, and I update/upgrade it and b...

Really, the ceremony is pretty much the reason weddings exist in the first place. The fact that you are gathering with your favorite people to say promises to the love of your life is a huge honor - so why does the timing of this seemingly become overlooked?

How to choo...

MADISON WI, MADISON WI WEDDING

I don't think I've ever described a wedding as a melting pot, but this one takes the cake. With family who flew in from literally over 11 different countries, with a full day of exploring around Madison and having just the most adventurous...

April 1, 2018

I'll take a step back really quick and let you know - I understand how stressful it can be to plan a wedding, and to have crazy amounts of vendors around and having this chaos that feels so real (even if your guests can't tell) and you may be thinking "Why in the world...
