Introducing Nicole and Patrick! They are getting married next fall down in the Twin Cities and were so excited to come ‘up north’ for their engagement shoot. They wanted the autumn leaves in all their splendor, and wow, did Duluth put on one final show for them before winter struck with a bang a few […]

Nicole + Patrick || Joyful Autumn Engagement Session

When you have two people who each grew up in rural, Wisconsin towns, pick up everything and move to Florida so the bride can follow her dreams – you know this is a special kind of love. I first met Cydney and Adam back at Adam’s sister Kristin (and Mike’s) wedding last fall. They hired […]

If you are a frequent visitor to my blog (hey, thanks for that!), you might recognize Jon and Kalie. They were featured last fall with their ‘first’ engagement photo session. Enter life And, enter Eli. Or Baby George, or simply Baby, as we like to call him often…. A quick reminder, Jon belongs to us […]

I’m sounding like a broken record here (and will continue to be for the next handful of blog entries) but our autumn colors have been nothing short of spectacular this season.

They’ve had to weigh the cost implications, cutting guest lists and the heartbreak of some of their […]

Micaela + Ben || Northern MN Lake Wedding

Not to sound like a broken record here, but as with most of my 2020 weddings, Kalynn and Connor’s wedding day looked a bit different than they originally planned when we first met a year and a half ago. Their original plans included a swanky wedding at Northland Country Club to include all their friends […]

Minnesota Wedding, Kalynn and Connor

We had an absolutely beautiful day up on Hale Lake in Grand Rapids, Minnesota where Meg and Brent got married at their home in front of family and friends. As with many of the weddings this season, some adjustments were made to accommodate our current circumstances – but for the most part, the day looked […]

Meg + Brent || Lake Home Wedding

If I had to describe the weddings of 2020 with one word, that word would be CHILL. Under most circumstances, weddings are not chill, but in fact – the opposite of that. With the events of 2020 (I won’t go into all that has happened, but I believe we all know where I’m going with […]
