Katie and Cam | Buena Vista Fall Wedding

I feel like I always talk about the weather when I post a wedding on the blog.  But the weather affects so much of the wedding day that it just as important as how beautiful the bride looked or how the groom looked at his glowing bride when he first saw her.  The weather may […]

Abby and Steven | Summer Ballroom Wedding

I feel like all summer long I’ve been saying the same thing about each wedding that I blog.  And I thought about that today as I sat down to write Steven and Abby’s wedding day blog post.  Every wedding has been fun, full of joy and oh so beautiful. Abby and Steven’s wedding day was […]

Taylor and Tyler | Outdoor Lakeside Summer Wedding

First things first, I hope you have your tissues ready for this one.  I knew right away after meeting with them last year that their wedding was going to be overflowing with love and joy.  And boy was I right.  Only way to describe their day, all the feels. They chose not to see each […]

Emma and Kaleb | BWB Ranch Outdoor Wedding

I’ve never been one that is the best with words.  I have been staring at the blank blog post screen for far too long trying to figure out what words to use for Emma and Kaleb’s wedding post.  I knew right away at their engagement session last year that their wedding day was going to […]

Samantha and Brandon | Bemidji Minnesota Summer Wedding

The middle of July can definitely be hit or miss for weather, more than likely it’s going to be hot and borderline humid for our area with pop up thundershowers in the afternoon and evening.  Brandon and Samantha however had a beautiful partly cloudy wedding day, not overly hot (thanks in part to the clouds […]

Jeanie and Matt | Bemidji Town and Country Club Wedding

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, Friday weddings are awesome.  Why are they so awesome?  Friends and family arrive for your Friday celebration and there’s still two days left to the weekend to relax and have fun!  Win win! Matt and Jeanie’s wedding day was super relaxed with Jeanie’s only request that […]

If I had to put Kim and Ben into a category for the type of couple that they are it would be the cool, calm and laid back couple.   Complete with Badgley Mischka shoes, our favorite florist and a stop at Paul and Babe for a photo op their wedding day was fun and […]

Tips and Tricks and Timelines, oh my! Part One

It’s your wedding day.  The day you get to marry your best friend, a day you’ve dreamed of and planned for months (let’s be honest, years!)

Briana + Kyle | BWB Ranch Summer Wedding

When people say they lucked out with the weather on their wedding day I don’t think they’ll ever come close to Briana and Kyle’s day.  With a beautiful outdoor ceremony planned, complete with a handmade double door backdrop and one of the most serene locations available, rain was simply not an option.  As the wedding […]

Miranda + Josh | Lake Bemidji State Park Wedding

If you follow Schrage Photography on social media you know that I have four different weather forecasts I check in the week leading up to a wedding, checking them almost obsessively (especially with outdoor weddings)  On the Wednesday morning prior to Josh and Miranda’s wedding the weather forecast was predicting 90% rain the entire day.
