Sounds a little daunting doesn’t it? To some it may sound like fun but to others the idea of planning this major life event can be a major anxiety inducement. Cue the tight chest, cold sweat and nightmares! But have no fear, sometimes you just need a little help from your friends…in this case your […]

Let’s plan a wedding!!

When I got married 12 years ago, the only thing I really remember needing to decide was what time to have the ceremony and what time to eat. Simple, right? But over this last decade of wedding photography I have learned that there are SO many decisions and questions that go into making a timeline. […]

The Wedding Day Timeline

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 […]

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

O.M.G. Guys. It’s here. I am SO excited that I might have to use more than two exclamation points!!!! (Which FYI is apparently a no no in the world of copywriting) Welcome to the NEW Schrage Photography website and blog!  I have been working long hours behind the scenes on a new website and brand […]

3, 2, 1….LAUNCH!

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 […]

Don’t call it a conference

On the corner of 4th St and Minnesota Ave resides the small floral shop KD Floral and Gardens.  But don’t let the size of their shop fool you.  Once known for its bright teal exterior it has become a go to shop for brides in the lakes area and beyond.  Packed to the brim with […]

Featured Florist | KD Floral and Gardens

It’s been 2017 for over 2 days now.  I rang in my new year with my new planner, a crap ton of washi tape and some erasable pens.  I purchased a StartPlanner for 2017, I already had a planner but THIS planner, this planner is set up the same way my mind works.  It’s like […]

A Whole New World….

The middle of nowhere, it now has a new location and I can officially say that I have spent the day there. With all of the changes forced on couples for early summer weddings, Derek and Cami really handled it with grace and flexibility. Their wedding was quite the adventure and we even got to […]

It’s hard to believe that my last blog was not long before all of the shitake (not sure if that’s an ACTUAL word, but I’m going with it) hit the fan with this craziness. Over the last few months brides have been scrambling to change plans, make accommodations based on expert recommendations and do their […]

It started with a golf tournament. The common theme for the evening in each of the speeches was how well Ben and Alyssa compliment each other. All you have to do is look at them while they look at each other and it’s just clear how perfect they are together. Start to finish their wedding […]

Kelli and Zack are married!! Their wedding was held at First Lutheran Church in Bemidji on one of those typical deceptively sunny winter days. You know the type, sunny and bright but frigid and cold! That didn’t matter though because Kelli thought ahead and all the ladies had beautiful fur wraps to stay warm while […]

These two met in Bemidji so it felt like a natural fit for their wedding to be held here! It’s been so much fun working with them throughout the wedding process. Their engagement session this summer was on fire, I mean quite literally the dumpster across the street had a fire start under it while […]

We all have that one couple we know that you are basically just WAITING for them to get married and have kids, right? We don’t? Is that actually creepy? Well, I don’t care because I’ve been waiting for this wedding for several years now. This wedding day was Katie and Aaron to a T. Small, […]
