Estes Park Destination Wedding | Sara and Charlie

When I say that this couple is near and dear to my heart it is a complete understatement.  I have known the bride for close to 20 years and she is my husband’s twin sister.  The groom, Oh Charlie…the first time I met Charlie I knew that this guy was made to be one of […]

Northern Minnesota Outdoor Wedding | Austin and Shelby

When every Saturday in June is rainy and crummy it’s natural to be a little apprehensive for an entirely outdoor wedding.  But Shelby and Austin completely lucked out with only a few passing showers late in the evening for their beautiful outdoor wedding on their family property.  Sometimes a simple intimate wedding is the most […]

Lake Bemidji Wedding | John and Lindsey

I think Mother Nature wanted to see how far she could push me this summer.  Three weekends in a row with rainy mornings on Saturday and on John and Lindsey’s wedding day Mother Nature definitely pulled out all the stops.  It was a deluge of rain complete with tons of wind and probably a little […]

Wedding Detail Styling Kit: What’s in the box?

I love randomly quoting movies and I think we can all agree that the Brad Pitt “What’s in the box?!” from Seven is one of the best ones.  It’s such a versatile reference!  I’ll admit, I even use it on Christmas and birthdays, yup I’m a dork. But that’s not what we’re here to chat […]

Benson Farm Wedding | Jessica and Sam

Mother nature seems to have the idea that the weekends are the best time for lots of rain during the summer.  But a little rain (okay it was a lot of rain) never stopped this wedding photographer and it certainly wasn’t going to stop this fabulous couple! Jessica and Sam were high school sweethearts and […]

Kayla and Nate | Northern Minnesota Summer Wedding

Waking up to a thunderstorm and watching it rain for hours the morning of your wedding isn’t exactly any bride’s ideal wedding day.  But that was the reality for Kayla and Nate on their wedding day in early June and neither one of them batted an eye while it poured all morning.  As luck would […]

Melissa and Kyle | Fall BWB Ranch Wedding

One of my final outdoor weddings of the season was Melissa and Kyle’s wedding at BWB Ranch in October.  October is such a hit or miss month for weather and I was super impressed that everyone toughed it out for the outdoor ceremony despite the chilly temps and impending rain.  Speaking of rain, that pesky […]

Don’t call it a conference

For the second year I ditched the freezing cold Northern Minnesota temps for the sun and warmth of Arizona to attend Showit United. You may be wondering, what is Showit United?  Well, let me tell you.  United is a four day photography conference to teach, train and inspire.  But I don’t like calling it a […]

With 2 weddings in a row at Buena Vista Ski Area this fall it has quickly become one of my favorite area ceremony locations for weddings!  The views are unbeatable and it’s such a unique venue!  Abbey and AJ hit the prime time of fall colors and we had some beautiful color to showcase during […]
