Mollie and Patrick are...

SAINT PAUL MINNESOTA WEDDING, ABULAE WEDDING

Micaela and Gaelin shared many of their own moments this day outside of their family - and those moments in particular were what made for such a stress free day. Every single ounce of their nerves melted the moment he turned...

Disclaimer: this is not a post justifying the cost of hiring a wedding photographer. It's a different type of post than that.

So, let's start simple. What would you pay for this photograph?

Without any background knowledge, and pretending this is your wedding, you might...

HASTING MN, MINNEAPOLIS MN WEDDING, HIDDEN MEADOWS

Incredibly fun and color coordinated wedding party. Everything happening all in one place. A first look with dad that resulted in tears. A first look with Zac that felt like a breath of fresh air. Dogs that are excited...

DISCLAIMER: This is definitely going to be a slightly passionate topic, so know that any perceived aggression is coming from a place of love, and isn't directed at anybody in particular.

So far I'm about 60% of the way through my 2019 marriage season, and there's only o...

DULUTH MN. GREYSOLON MOORISH ROOM WEDDING + RECEPTION

Sometimes, when you walk along Lake Superior, you can really get lost in your thoughts.

I grew up just a toss from the lake (as pretty much anybody in the Twin Ports does, amiright?) and, like so many of the people that live here, it has a completely different calming e...

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...

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...
