Remember these two?! They were the genius couple who starred in one of my favorite engagement sessions at the Minnesota State Fair (refresh your memory here). Well, their wedding day was nothing less than exceptionally beautiful, and I once again, loved being behind the lens capturing it all for these two. And can we just […]

The first time I met Amy + Josh was in Chicago for their engagement session. It just so happened to work out perfectly, as my sister lives in the city, and we were able to connect and take photos in the city they live. Then last month, we switched up cities as they tied the […]

There are hardly words to be able to full describe what experiencing Taylor + Ryan’s wedding was like. Taylor is technically my cousin-but she’s so much more than that. We grew up down the road from each other and were 5 months apart…needless to say-we were best friends and experienced so much of life together. […]

It was one of those wedding days where rain was in the forecast at about a 99% chance, so we bought umbrellas and mentally prepared for a downpour. But if you’re a true Minnesotan, you know nothing is ever for SURE, and often times, the forecast is usually opposite the day of. Which means, you […]

August 18, 2018 was the most popular day this year to get married, and I might be biased, but I think I got the best wedding of them all. Kate and Connor invited me up to her grandmother’s lake home on Woman Lake in Longville, MN. It has been their place of summer getaways since […]

June was an amazing month with amazing couples and amazing weddings. From the moment I met Melissa + David, we just clicked. Our “meetings” weren’t meetings, and their engagement session and wedding felt like old friends hangin out, and I LOVED THAT.

It was the first perfect day of summer, and it just so happened to be Jenny + Travis’ wedding day. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and for all the snow we got in April, the fact that there was no snow in sight was a complete and total miracle. These two tied the […]

It is always such an incredible honor when to team up with some of Minneapolis’ finest vendors. Ashley Fox reached out to photograph her bouquet demonstration put on by Twin Cities Floral Exchange, and I was ecstatic. With the combination of The White Room, Peter Phung, Heather Trachsel and Alyssa McGaughey…the results were quite amazing, […]

The 2018 Wedding Season couldn’t have started off any more perfect than with Kelly + Brandon. It was a beautiful March day, and the day was beautiful. It was my first time shooting at Machine Shop, and I was in LOVE…such an incredible venue, and the perfect backdrop to this couple. If this wedding is […]

It’s hard to put 2017 into words, but I gotta say, it was a pretty darn good year. I got to travel with my best friends to Florida and Washington, visit my bro in California and made a trip up to my favorite place in the world-Lutsen. Oh yeah, work was pretty great too. It […]

It’s not often that you get that chance to photograph a wedding on a Monday night, but my goodness I could get used to it!! It was such a sweet and intimate celebration between Ruthanne + Robert, as they exchanged vows at the beautiful venue Paikka in St. Paul. The stunning duo were all smiles, […]

The last few years, I’ve driven past St. Stephen’s Church in Edina, and every time I think to myself, “Gosh, I wish I could photograph a wedding there!” The exterior is beautiful, the interior is beautiful, and it’s grounds are GORGEOUS. Especially in the fall. Without putting two and two together, I put the address […]
