A Wedding Session ~ Otsego, MN Wedding Photographer

I loved meeting this amazing couple. They are truly great together… and even better as parents. Their beautiful daughter is such a miracle! Born a micro preemie (teeny tiny!!!) she has thrived with these two as Mom and Dad and was able to be a part of a very special day. It snowed out the evening before but entire wedding party were troopers and went outside for a few quick, cold, windy photos – that also turned out really cute 🙂 This union was all about having those closest to them present, and the ceremony in front of the fireplace was incredibly touching. They say a person is only as good as those who surround them… if that is indeed the case these two are in luck. Congratulations again, I know your life will be truly blessed!

In the days leading up to this beautiful wedding, all signs pointed to rain. Somehow I just KNEW that wouldn’t be the case. Sure enough when the big day came, the clouds parted and the sun peeked through making for absolutely perfect weather. That’s actually quite fitting for this couple. Faith binds them, and theirs really is a fairytale in the making. I know that the future holds great things for this newly formed family. Thank you for letting us be a small part of such a big day ❤

Oh remember that rain? It held out until the very end of the evening… allowing for a pretty neat moment.

*Thank you Kristin McCarthy Photography for being my right hand woman for such a special day. It wouldn’t have been the same without you!

This was such a beautiful day. From a stunning couple to the beautiful venue of TPC in Blaine complete with gorgeous flowers and table settings it was picture perfect. Despite it being a scorcher outside everyone was a trooper and willing to partake in some photos outside. Totally worth it though!  A big Thank You to Ben Wilson of Wilson Aesthetics for being my right hand man for the day. I couldn’t have had a better partner!

A Wedding Session ~ Princeton, MN Photographer

Oh. My. Goodness. I don’t exactly know what to say about this wedding besides stating the obvious. It was BEAUTIFUL. The weather? Perfect. The location? Even more perfect. The couple? Picture Perfect (see what I did there?!).  This amazing event took place at the Groom’s family farm just north of the cities. There were many hours put in by the bride with the decor, but it really paid off. A lovely reception followed a very emotional ceremony, of which the Bride’s Uncle presided over. One of my favorite parts was the symbolic gesture the couple had during the ceremony. Instead of lighting a unity candle, they had dirt from both of their childhood homes that they combined in one pot and planted a tree ❤  Such a great idea!!  Thank you again for letting me in on your special day. It was magical. Also, a big Thank You to Angie Fude for being my right hand “chick” and helping me capture it.

what a truly awesome day this was. From amazing parents, to a super fun Bride and Groom, to a wedding party that made the day so much fun. I loved every minute of it. The dress was beautiful and I loved the color of the bridesmaid dresses against the green backdrop of a beautiful park. A smores bar and delicious cupcakes topped off a great salad and amazing food. My favorite part about weddings is the fact I get to meet such great people and watch their lives and family grow as time passes. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of such an important day and I know your life will be one full of blessings.

This beautiful day was at one of my very favorite places for a wedding. The grounds at Rubies & Rust are amazing! From the house with cute themed rooms, the awesome outdoor ceremony location, to the beautifully decorated barn… it is perfect! The Bride and Groom had a day full of emotion, there were laughs and tears from many… it was such a blessing to be a part of it. Everyone had a great time witnessing love, eating great food, and indulging on some amazing cupcakes! The Bride just happens to be a very talented pastry chef and made the entire cake and ALL of the cupcakes. Multi-talented indeed 🙂  Also, I may or may not have had a big vintage couch carried outside for some pretty pictures. Ha! Thank you again for letting us capture your day and a big Thank You to Jessica Wilson Photography for being my right hand man (er, woman?) for this super important day!

A Baby Session ~ Minneapolis, MN Photographer

This little sweetie is such a joy every time I get to see her. She is full of smiles and has the most amazing eyes I’ve ever seen! Although I love taking photos of her I equally love getting the opportunity to catch up with her mom, we always have such a great time! Although she may not know it yet, she is quite lucky to have such an amazing and caring family –  next time her {awesome} big brothers are going to join in on the fun ❤

I love weddings for several reasons. Watching a family start, commitment based on love form, and hearing vows of the heart spoken never gets old, and when the couple taking part is as awesome as this couple is… well that is the icing on the cake (pun intended)! We had a great day, storms had been predicted all week but never managed to materialize, and the clouds and sun made for a moody mix of lighting that totally added to the day. One of my favorite moments of the day was when a Groomsman was hoisted and carried up the aisle after the ceremony due to a recent injury… Everyone was cracking up. Happiness, laughter, and some AMAZING speeches topped of this beautiful event and I am so thankful I was able to witness it. Thank  you again for letting me in on your day – and for giving me cake. The amaretto made my husband a little bit jealous 😉
