DULUTH MN, BEAVER BAY MN, PALISADE HEAD ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT

"It was just time" - the response when asked why they chose to elope. Emily and Tim had been engaged for over a year and had made zero plans toward a wedding - so they called up Lace and Brass Events and asked...

MINNEAPOLIS MN. THE LUMBER EXCHANGE. RACHEL + ZACH

Getting ready in her childhood home, Rachel was the definition of giggly and excited. Bridesmaids first looks are my new favorite. I'm still a huge fan of forests. The wedding party was having too much fun. Every parent...

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

These are a few of my favorite things.

I think we define ourselves by a bunch of things, but a minimalist for me is a loose definition - even if only by heart. My house is pretty much a chaotic mess every time I walk through the door, no matter how much I clean it.

But I've started to think of love in minima...

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 were a flavor of ice cream, they'd definitely be chocol...

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 were having a backyard weddin...

"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...

Let's get real for just a minute here: this is some SERIOUS senior portraits goal. Karissa traveled up from the Eau Claire area to have her portraits taken with me in Duluth at Canal Park and Park Point. Despite just how often seniors choose these locations, it's alway...

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 wedding day EVER, this event...

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...

As a travelling adventure photographer, I'm lucky enough to have start building connections and photographing weddings in various parts of the states. When I was given the opportunity to photograph alongside Ashley of Photos by Ashley Renee I was ECSTATIC. Hanging out...

It's hard to describe exactly why February felt impossible. Maybe it was the constant back and forth of, "how amazing is this?!" to "omg, my life is coming down in shambles". It's really tough to experience a constant back and forth tug of "I'm doing alright" to "I sho...

Anyone who's from the Duluth area (or has visited frequently) knows the truth that is the crazy, sporadic weather that the lake makes for us. We'll go from 80 and sunny to 60 and rainy SO FAST it's unbelievable. 

This small backyard session serves to remind you that eve...
