It is impossible to put into words what this last year meant to me…photographing over 90 families, I can’t even believe it. What a gift to be able to photograph so many sweet families, sweet moments, and answers to prayer. Thank you all so much for allowing me in your homes, meeting me at parks, […]

I don’t think I will ever tire of newborn sessions, and my time spent with Amy, Michael and their sweet Quinn is no exception to that rule. I think she slept the entire time, and although we passed her back and forth, up and down and all around, she loved being snuggled in her parents […]

The sun was shining, it was the perfect temperature, and these two were surrounded by an incredible army of friends and family. We wandered the streets of St. Anthony Main, and made our way over to […]

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.

I met these two just over a year ago at Lynhall and knew in an instant we had a good thing going. Kelsey + Mike are some of the kindest people I have ever met, with the sweetest hearts for their family and friends-and especially one another. Their wedding at the end of May at […]

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 […]

I only had one wedding in April-but I was looking forward to the day with Emily + Dave for months leading up to it. The two of them are one of the sweetest pairs, who instantly made me feel like family. We grabbed coffee, we grabbed beer, and connected the dots that we knew about […]

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. I may enforce the rule that all future engagement sessions MUST take place near water-cool? Cool.

You’ve heard me say it before, I’m sure, but there really is something so special photographing these significant moments in your friends lives. I’ve known Brady since college, and watched him fall in love with Andrea…then got to take their engagement and wedding photos, and now the exciting addition of their sweet baby girl Baylor. […]

The beginning of March started perfectly with Dana + Joe’s wedding at Aria in Minneapolis. The two of them have known each other since they were in the same Kindergarten class, so needless to say, it was a pretty special day to capture. From best friends, to dating in college, to now getting married-the love […]

It’s hard to put into words how meaningful this newborn session was. Jess and I became friends back in Bible study, and from there I had the immense honor of traveling to Guatemala to capture her and Tim’s wedding…one of the most beautiful experiences and weddings I’ve had the honor to photograph (you can relive […]
