Lexi + Ben | 10.25.14

And here it is folks, my very last wedding of 2014…and I love it!! October 25th was a beautiful day with Lexi, Ben and their awesome family and friends. Our dad’s go way back and our families have known each other for years, so it was so fun to be with them the day of and seeing how loved Lexi and Ben are by those closest to them. I couldn’t have been more happy to be alongside such a great couple, and couldn’t have wrapped up the season with a more lovely day!! So thrilled to share with you all today…enjoy and Merry Christmas!! 2014-12-18_00052014-12-18_00032014-12-18_00022014-12-18_00042014-12-18_00082014-12-18_00102014-12-18_00112014-12-18_00122014-12-18_00132014-12-18_00072014-12-18_00142014-12-18_00152014-12-18_00162014-12-18_00172014-12-18_00182014-12-18_00192014-12-18_00212014-12-18_00222014-12-18_00232014-12-18_00242014-12-18_00252014-12-18_00262014-12-18_00272014-12-18_00282014-12-18_00292014-12-18_00302014-12-18_00332014-12-18_00312014-12-18_00322014-12-18_00342014-12-18_00362014-12-18_00352014-12-18_00372014-12-18_00382014-12-18_00392014-12-18_00402014-12-18_00412014-12-18_00422014-12-18_00432014-12-18_00442014-12-18_00452014-12-18_00462014-12-18_00482014-12-18_00492014-12-18_00502014-12-18_00552014-12-18_00592014-12-18_00562014-12-18_00572014-12-18_00582014-12-18_00602014-12-18_00632014-12-18_00642014-12-18_00612014-12-18_00652014-12-18_00622014-12-18_00662014-12-18_00672014-12-18_00682014-12-18_00532014-12-18_00092014-12-18_00702014-12-18_00712014-12-18_00742014-12-18_00752014-12-18_00762014-12-18_00772014-12-18_01132014-12-18_01182014-12-18_01212014-12-18_01192014-12-18_01202014-12-18_00812014-12-18_00822014-12-18_00832014-12-18_00842014-12-18_00852014-12-18_00862014-12-18_00872014-12-18_00892014-12-18_00942014-12-18_00902014-12-18_00912014-12-18_00922014-12-18_00932014-12-18_00952014-12-18_00972014-12-18_00962014-12-18_00992014-12-18_00982014-12-18_01012014-12-18_01032014-12-18_01022014-12-18_01042014-12-18_01052014-12-18_01062014-12-18_01072014-12-18_01082014-12-18_01092014-12-18_01102014-12-18_01112014-12-18_01122014-12-18_01142014-12-18_01152014-12-18_01162014-12-18_0117

The Jensens

My first winter session kicked off last weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited for a new season to shoot in! My cousin Jim and his wife Britt live up in Blaine, and they were looking for a few pics of their family….their beauuuuutiful pup Percy is a German Short-Haired Pointer and she is a just a sweetie! The weather was perfect, and it was so sweet to snap some sweet photos of them in and around their home. Love this family, and love these photos!!

Steph + Kyle | 10.12.14

October proved itself time and time again to be the most beautiful month of the year…and Steph and Kyle’s wedding day is right up there with being truly TRULY beautiful. The day took place down in Rochester at the Mayowood Stone Barn….if ya haven’t been there, go. And if you don’t think it’s an exceptionally beautiful venue, you’re wrong. It was an amazing day with Steph and Kyle, and their seriously awesome wedding party, family and friends. It was a sweet celebration and I loved being the front man with a camera in hand to capture the whole day for them. Such an honor and so excited to share! Without further ado…I give you the Wahlunds!! 2014-12-10_00012014-12-10_00042014-12-10_00032014-12-10_00022014-12-10_00072014-12-10_00092014-12-10_00082014-12-10_00122014-12-10_00102014-12-10_00132014-12-10_00142014-12-10_00152014-12-10_00172014-12-10_00202014-12-10_00412014-12-10_00262014-12-10_00272014-12-10_00282014-12-10_00292014-12-10_00302014-12-10_00332014-12-10_00312014-12-10_00362014-12-10_00372014-12-10_00392014-12-10_00242014-12-10_00212014-12-10_00402014-12-10_00422014-12-10_00432014-12-10_00442014-12-10_00452014-12-10_00472014-12-10_00462014-12-10_00482014-12-10_00502014-12-10_00522014-12-10_00492014-12-10_00582014-12-10_00532014-12-10_00512014-12-10_00572014-12-10_00562014-12-10_00602014-12-10_00612014-12-10_00622014-12-10_00632014-12-10_00642014-12-10_00652014-12-10_00662014-12-10_00682014-12-10_00672014-12-10_00702014-12-10_00712014-12-10_00722014-12-10_00732014-12-10_00762014-12-10_00772014-12-10_00782014-12-10_00802014-12-10_00812014-12-10_00822014-12-10_00832014-12-10_00862014-12-10_00872014-12-10_00882014-12-10_00902014-12-10_00912014-12-10_00922014-12-10_00942014-12-10_00932014-12-10_00952014-12-10_00962014-12-10_00972014-12-10_00992014-12-10_01002014-12-10_01022014-12-10_01012014-12-10_01042014-12-10_01032014-12-10_01072014-12-10_01082014-12-10_01202014-12-10_01112014-12-10_01122014-12-10_01102014-12-10_01132014-12-10_01142014-12-10_01152014-12-10_01162014-12-10_01172014-12-10_01182014-12-10_01192014-12-10_01242014-12-10_01252014-12-10_01222014-12-10_01232014-12-10_01212014-12-10_01282014-12-10_01272014-12-10_01302014-12-10_01292014-12-10_01312014-12-10_01332014-12-10_01342014-12-10_01352014-12-10_01362014-12-10_01372014-12-10_01382014-12-10_01402014-12-10_01412014-12-10_01442014-12-10_01432014-12-10_01452014-12-10_01462014-12-10_01472014-12-10_01482014-12-10_01492014-12-10_01502014-12-10_01512014-12-10_01542014-12-10_01522014-12-10_01532014-12-10_01562014-12-10_01572014-12-10_01552014-12-10_01582014-12-10_01592014-12-10_0160

Ohhhh my my. As if Jess isn’t the most beautiful mama-to-be…this session has got me through the roof with how gorgeous our time was!! Jess got in touch with me a few months ago with a vision of having a little maternity session at a tree lot. Well…she’s a genius because it was the best…and her and Rob were so chill (literally and figuratively) and we just walked around, had a great time and snapped a few pics. Pretty excited for these two, and can’t wait to meet their sweet little baby girl this January!! 2014-12-03_00392014-12-03_00402014-12-03_00422014-12-03_00412014-12-03_00432014-12-03_00442014-12-03_00452014-12-03_00472014-12-03_00482014-12-03_00492014-12-03_00522014-12-03_00772014-12-03_00542014-12-03_00762014-12-03_00552014-12-03_00572014-12-03_00582014-12-03_00592014-12-03_00602014-12-03_00612014-12-03_00622014-12-03_00642014-12-03_00632014-12-03_00652014-12-03_00682014-12-03_00662014-12-03_00692014-12-03_00672014-12-03_00702014-12-03_00712014-12-03_00732014-12-03_00742014-12-03_0075

Now this is an extra special session on here today!! Annie is my bible study leader and friend, and she put this whole session together. It was her sister and brother-in-laws 25th wedding anniversary, and Annie wanted to do something special for them. She set up a “session” with just her sister and niece, but little did Maggie know, that her husband and son would be showing up a few minutes in to surprise her with flowers and a fun family session! It was SUCH a beautiful morning, and as you will see in the photos…full of laughter and so much love, it was such a joy to be part of it with them!! So glad to have met this family, and so thankful for Annie’s love for those closest to her to give them such a sweet gift! Enjoy the photos!! 2014-12-02_00012014-12-02_00022014-12-02_00032014-12-02_00052014-12-02_00062014-12-02_00072014-12-02_00082014-12-02_00092014-12-02_00102014-12-02_00112014-12-02_00132014-12-02_00142014-12-02_00162014-12-02_00152014-12-02_00172014-12-02_00182014-12-02_00192014-12-02_00202014-12-02_00212014-12-02_00242014-12-02_00222014-12-02_00252014-12-02_00232014-12-02_00262014-12-02_00292014-12-02_00272014-12-02_00282014-12-02_0031

Katie + Ethan | 10.10.14

Nothing makes me happier than being able to share ANOTHER beautiful wedding with you all the day before the holidays officially begin! Katie and Ethan were seriously such a great couple to work with. I met them through the amazing planner Sarah Trotter, and gosh, it was the perfect set-up! I connected with them instantly, and their day was beaauuuutiful. It was another stunning fall day at the Basilica and Nicollet Isaland Pavilion, and it didn’t hurt that Katie and Ethan are totally nuts for each other :) SUCH a great day, and so thrilled to have been part of it in this amazing way!! Enjoy!! 2014-11-26_00022014-11-26_00042014-11-26_00012014-11-26_00182014-11-26_00082014-11-26_00092014-11-26_00072014-11-26_00032014-11-26_00102014-11-26_00112014-11-26_00122014-11-26_00132014-11-26_00142014-11-26_00162014-11-26_00152014-11-26_00192014-11-26_00202014-11-26_00212014-11-26_00222014-11-26_00232014-11-26_00252014-11-26_00242014-11-26_00262014-11-26_00272014-11-26_00282014-11-26_00292014-11-26_00312014-11-26_00332014-11-26_00342014-11-26_00352014-11-26_00372014-11-26_00382014-11-26_00392014-11-26_00412014-11-26_00472014-11-26_00452014-11-26_00442014-11-26_00462014-11-26_00532014-11-26_00672014-11-26_00682014-11-26_00542014-11-26_00522014-11-26_00562014-11-26_00552014-11-26_00572014-11-26_00582014-11-26_00592014-11-26_00602014-11-26_00612014-11-26_00692014-11-26_00632014-11-26_00642014-11-26_00652014-11-26_00662014-11-26_00702014-11-26_00712014-11-26_00722014-11-26_00742014-11-26_00752014-11-26_00762014-11-26_00772014-11-26_00802014-11-26_00792014-11-26_00812014-11-26_00732014-11-26_00862014-11-26_00822014-11-26_00832014-11-26_00872014-11-26_00852014-11-26_00892014-11-26_00912014-11-26_00922014-11-26_00932014-11-26_00942014-11-26_00962014-11-26_00972014-11-26_00992014-11-26_01002014-11-26_01012014-11-26_01022014-11-26_01382014-11-26_01032014-11-26_01062014-11-26_01042014-11-26_01072014-11-26_01082014-11-26_01112014-11-26_01092014-11-26_01132014-11-26_01142014-11-26_01152014-11-26_01162014-11-26_01172014-11-26_01202014-11-26_01182014-11-26_01192014-11-26_01212014-11-26_01222014-11-26_01292014-11-26_01232014-11-26_01252014-11-26_01242014-11-26_01272014-11-26_01352014-11-26_01302014-11-26_01312014-11-26_01322014-11-26_01332014-11-26_01362014-11-26_01372014-11-26_01342014-11-26_01392014-11-26_0140








Ashley + Dan | 9.13.14

And here we go again…another beautiful fall wedding. Ashley and Dan were seriously some of the funnest people to work with. I met them last winter, when we braved the cold and held their engagement session OUTSIDE (relive that day here)!! Well…their bravery paid off, because their wedding day was absolutely perfect, and they couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day! The entire day was all smiles with them, and their love for each other was one of the purest I was able to capture this fall.

Missy + Brad | 9.12.14

By now, you all know how much I love weddings in the woods. Missy must’ve known, because when she said she was going to be getting married at Grand View Lodge up in Brainerd, I was through the roof! It was another spot I’ve always wanted to shoot at, and it absolutely did NOT disappoint. I think the first look speaks for itself, but it was truly a breath-taking day with Missy and Brad. It was a great and intimate celebration with their family and friends, and I was truly honored to be able to be alongside them throughout the day and I’m so thrilled to feature these two on the blog today!! Now get to viewin’!! 2014-11-14_00132014-11-14_00142014-11-14_00012014-11-14_00042014-11-14_00032014-11-14_00022014-11-14_00062014-11-14_00072014-11-14_00082014-11-14_00092014-11-14_00112014-11-14_00152014-11-14_00172014-11-14_00162014-11-14_00182014-11-14_00192014-11-14_00202014-11-14_00212014-11-14_00232014-11-14_00252014-11-14_00262014-11-14_00272014-11-14_00282014-11-14_00292014-11-14_00322014-11-14_00302014-11-14_00332014-11-14_00342014-11-14_00352014-11-14_00362014-11-14_00382014-11-14_00372014-11-14_00392014-11-14_00402014-11-14_00412014-11-14_00422014-11-14_00432014-11-14_00442014-11-14_00452014-11-14_00462014-11-14_00472014-11-14_00482014-11-14_00492014-11-14_00502014-11-14_00512014-11-14_00522014-11-14_00532014-11-14_00542014-11-14_00572014-11-14_00562014-11-14_00582014-11-14_00592014-11-14_00602014-11-14_00612014-11-14_00622014-11-14_00632014-11-14_00652014-11-14_00662014-11-14_00672014-11-14_00692014-11-14_00702014-11-14_00712014-11-14_00722014-11-14_00732014-11-14_00752014-11-14_00762014-11-14_00772014-11-14_00792014-11-14_00802014-11-14_00822014-11-14_00842014-11-14_00862014-11-14_00872014-11-14_00882014-11-14_00902014-11-14_00912014-11-14_00922014-11-14_00932014-11-14_00942014-11-14_00952014-11-14_00972014-11-14_01012014-11-14_01002014-11-14_0102

Ashley + Andy | Engaged

I met Ashley a few months ago at my first wedding of the season for my friend Angie. Ashley was Angie’s hairdresser, and she did an AMAZING job, which you can see more of here!! (PS: You can also see more about Ashley’s own salon work here) She was such a fun and enthusiastic person to have around in the morning, and I was SO excited when she called looking to have her engagement photos done this fall! Her and Andy were absolute champs, because though you can’t tell, we were lucky enough to have one of the coldest days in October, but needless to say they kept each other warm and we had a great time!! So excited to share these photos with you all, and so SO glad to have been able to capture this beautiful couple!! 2014-11-11_00022014-11-11_00012014-11-11_00042014-11-11_00032014-11-11_00062014-11-11_00052014-11-11_00102014-11-11_00092014-11-11_00122014-11-11_00112014-11-11_00132014-11-11_00142014-11-11_00162014-11-11_00152014-11-11_00172014-11-11_00182014-11-11_00202014-11-11_00212014-11-11_00222014-11-11_00232014-11-11_00242014-11-11_00262014-11-11_00252014-11-11_00272014-11-11_00292014-11-11_00302014-11-11_00322014-11-11_00342014-11-11_00332014-11-11_00352014-11-11_00362014-11-11_00372014-11-11_00382014-11-11_00392014-11-11_00402014-11-11_00412014-11-11_00432014-11-11_00422014-11-11_00462014-11-11_00442014-11-11_0045

Lauren + Michael | Engaged

Now, Lauren just might be my first bride who I’ve known the longest and go waaaaay back. I think maybe all the way to kindergarten?! We were neighbors when we were really little, my sister was her and her brother’s babysitter and we went through a majority of our schooling together…along with knowing both of her wonderful parents throughout the years!! Phew! So, needless to say, I was thrilled when she emailed me and said her and Michael were looking for a wedding photographer!! It was so fun to grab coffee with them, get to know them as a couple and of course…plan out the engagement session. If you follow along on the blog, and have learned anything about me in the last week, you’ll know I love fall engagement sessions, and was so excited when they said they wanted to make sure to get their fall color fix in their session! And gosh, we sure did. We ventured around the Loring Greenway and ended up venturing over the beautiful Walker and sculpture gardens…I am over the moon with their photos, and most of all love seeing their love and laughter come through in such beautiful ways! I can’t wait to be part of their day next August!! 2014-11-10_00012014-11-10_00022014-11-10_00032014-11-10_00042014-11-10_00052014-11-10_00062014-11-10_00072014-11-10_00352014-11-10_00092014-11-10_00102014-11-10_00112014-11-10_00122014-11-10_00132014-11-10_00142014-11-10_00372014-11-10_00162014-11-10_00172014-11-10_00182014-11-10_00192014-11-10_00212014-11-10_00222014-11-10_00232014-11-10_00242014-11-10_00262014-11-10_00252014-11-10_00302014-11-10_0031
