Elisa & Pino — St. James Hotel Red Wing, MN Wedding Photography

I don’t know whether I can come up with the right words to properly explain the amount of love and glamour that Elisa & Pino’s wedding had. I have LOVED spending time with Elisa & Pino over the past few months and getting to know the incredibly genuine, kind, loving, people that they are. They welcome you with love and open arms from the very moment you meet them, and it doesn’t fade over any extended amount of time. Their wedding day was a perfect reflection of exactly who they are, and I had the most difficult time narrowing this post down!! So here we go — these are just a few of my favorite moments from E&P’s beautiful wedding at the historic St. James Hotel in Red Wing. Enjoy!! ♥

Megan & Brent — Engagement on a Family Farm

I never quite understand how I get so lucky… and I may never actually know. But the people that I get to work with in this job of mine are just amazing! This is Megan and Brent — I’m photographing their wedding in October of 2015 and I CANNOT wait. And guess what else? This barn will be making an appearance in their wedding photos too. <3

Also, THEIR DOG. Just about the cutest little thing I’ve ever seen and I want to take him home with me!!! I believe little Harley may have stolen the show a little bit… but you can decide that on your own:

Alisha & Conor — Rubies & Rust Wedding Barn Belle Plaine, MN Wedding Photography

I’d think this wedding were a dream if I didn’t have the photos to prove it was real!! Alisha and Conor threw an amazing party at a beyond perfect location, and I am SO thrilled that I was able to be there and capture it all for them. I could have spent an entire day just photographing details in that barn… what a place!! Beyond that, the bride had impeccable style, the groom was hilarious for my camera, and I loved every second of working with this awesome couple. So sit back, relax, and enjoy scrolling through this perfect wedding day!

Gosh, I’m so in love with Whitney, Nick, and their wedding day!

Jennifer & Josh — Hidden Falls Park Engagement Photography

I LOVED spending the evening with Jennifer & Josh. These two are so easy to pass the time with — I could laugh a night away with them any time! We had a gorgeous evening walking around Hidden Falls Park, complete with a gorgeous waterfall and a picnic with wine along the shores of the Mississippi. I cannot wait to spend more time with this couple at their wedding this September!
