Meet Nicole and David – We were finally able to get together and have some fun in the snow before their summer wedding at Doc’s in Sturgeon Lake (yep, that’s the place you are thinking of – the mandatory pit-stop on your way to the Twin Cities!). Today’s backdrop was the beautiful Hartley Nature Center […]

Holy cow, I can’t wait for this wedding. I really do connect with all of my wedding couples on some level and keep in touch with almost all of them even after the nuptials have taken place. With Kayla and Melissa? I knew from our first meeting that we would become friends. It wasn’t the […]

Meet Lindsey and Clay! I’ve known Lindsey for years and I’ve recently met Clay over the last few. It was fun hanging out with them, and learning about their love story, and their wedding plans so far. We started out at one of my favorites, Vikre, and then headed out to catch some of Duluth’s […]

Wait for the Sun Glow Folks, these photos are why we waited until the last 45 minutes before dark to jump on this Lake Superior beach engagement session. Two words: SUN GLOW. When Elisabeth and Brandon were discussing their vision for their engagement session, there wasn’t a hesitation in that they wanted two of the best […]

Kallie + Jeremiah From little kids sports, to grad sessions, and now to engagement photos and ultimately a wedding – It’s unbelievably exciting to be trusted to capture so many milestones within a family! I’ve been taking pictures of Kallie for many years now, and just had the opportunity to meet Jeremiah. With that, I […]

I met Renee and Chance through the photography version of an ‘online dating app’. We had a match, went on a Zoom date, and made a connection! What started out as plans for an small wedding in Duluth, really evolved into planning for a spectacular, intimate, summer celebration in June. Until their big day comes […]

Meet Cali and Ryan! They have a summer wedding planned for Mont du Lac (which I’ve been DYING to photograph for years) but it felt anything like summer on this extra-chilly winter day for their engagement session. That’s the thing with hearty northerners, the cold and crispy doesn’t scare us. Jay Cooke State Park is […]

Let’s chat about photo editing. This is a deep-dive topic in whole, but today we’re going to start simple and discuss one of the most basic photo edits: Black and White. I’m often asked why I select certain images to process in black and white. While there are no hard and fast rules, every photographer […]

Megan REALLY wanted an autumn engagement shoot. When we got the sudden burst of winter (which is known to happen in the midwest), we switched gears a tad. Who would have thought that we would get the beautiful autumn leaves that were still clinging on for dear life, along with the crisp, bright snow? While […]
