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'...

DULUTH MN, DULUTH MN ELOPEMENT

This was definitely a small-ish wedding, but I'm gonna call it an elopement for ease's sake, because let's face it, it had all the feels of an elopement.

And here's the other thing: there was nothing but joy. Families are complicated, and t...

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...

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...

MILWAUKEE WI ENGAGEMENT

Hector came into my life in the form of a unexpected friend that always greets you with warmth and interest in your life. Over the years that I have known him, I have never known him to be happier than when in the presence of Demi, and I think th...

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...

April 22, 2018

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...

March 29, 2018

Every year, the Shoot and Share Contest is the most anxiety inducing 3 months of time. First, you start by somehow having to pick your 50 favorite images from that year, and then have to spend a month and a half looking at all sorts of other AMAZING work from photograp...

March 25, 2018

I have to admit I didn't see this one coming, but the more I thought about it the more AMAZING the idea became. One of the newest wedding trends is actually forgoing the hustle and bustle of having friends in the ceremony, and actually letting them attend (wearing what...

March 24, 2018

I remember being younger and looking up the days of the week that my birthday fell on. "My 21st is a Wednesday, what a bummer. But my golden birthday is a Friday!"

I don't think that 13 year old me would have expected my life to be this way, but that's okay.

Somewhere be...
