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'...

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...

BAYFIELD WI ENGAGEMENT, MADELINE ISLAND ENGAGEMENT

There have been such few times that I have laughed so hard at the stories that Rachael and Ryan shared with me.

I definitely spent the three days prior to this session with all of my fingers crossed that sunshine and blu...

MUSKEGO WI WEDDING, MILWAUKEE WI WEDDING

The best events are the ones where people allow themselves to wear their hearts and emotions on their sleeves. They allow themselves to have fun. They eat the cake. They talk with as many people as possible. They focus less on ho...

DETROIT LAKES WEDDING

Compelling and relentless fun. That's how I would describe the event that these two hosted for their friends and family. To the brim with laughter and tears and overwhelming joy. And baseball. And light.

And love.

COLUMBUS OH WEDDING

For my first visit in Ohio, I think this set a pretty high bar. From Columbus' oldest church to the most gorgeous athletic club I've ever seen, the tones and colors of this wedding were knocked out of the park.

From a super relaxed wedding party to a...

It's about to get all sorts of vulnerable up in here.

In honor of my exciting start into boudoir and intimate in-home couples sessions, I thought I would share a piece that I wrote almost two years ago about self-worth. It's been sitting in my blog drafts for a little o...

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...
