When Kelsey + Paul told me about their wedding day, I was instantly in love with their vision. After initial plans for a large wedding, these two realized something small and intimate was more suited for who they are and what they truly wanted for their day. Attended only by immediate family, the ceremony was […]

Well, it’s safe to say summer is here, and my night at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum with Stephen + Elle was absolutely perfect. Pure sunshine, no humidity, no bugs and essentially just the three of us in the entire park, it was incredible. I get a lot of couples telling me that they are super […]

Tis the season for summer engagements, and I am so excited. My time with Lauren + Brian was so wonderful wandering down by St. Anthony Main, and then heading to their special spot of Lake Calhoun-where Brian proposed.

From best friends, to dating in college, to now getting married-the love […]

My new favorite kind of maternity session is in your own home. When Emily first reached out about photos, we talked about what location we would want to go to in the middle of winter and eventually, we landed on her and Dustin’s own home. I loved her mindset and how she expressed she just […]

This winter has been quite a doozy for us Minnesotans…surviving the polar vortex was no easy feat, but getting to take Amalia’s newborn photos in the midst of it helped me get through!! So teeny and tiny, so sweet, and so loved by her parents-I absolutely loved this session. Happy to share this new family […]

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 […]
