Amanda & Rachel | Bloom Lake Barn Wedding

These two ladies hold a special place in my heart. Over the last year and a half, I found that I have freakishly similar tastes for many things in life as Rachel & Amanda. After coincidentally showing up to the same events more than once, and even realizing we were taking the same vacations within weeks of each other, I knew that working alongside them would be as easy as working with old friends. They made me laugh constantly, they gave me a to-go bag of donuts at their wedding (I mean... sweets are my love language 😍), and their love for each other is as beautiful as I've ever seen. A&R - thank you from the bottom of my heart for including me in your wedding day! xoxo

Sam & Brian | Stone Ridge Golf Club Wedding

Sam & Brian had a wedding day so dreamy that I would be selfish not to share the eye candy details and uber-romantic, sun-drenched portraits with all of you. Everything that they surrounded themselves in that day was amazing, from the venue to the people chosen to stand by their sides. I love a wedding party who knows how to have fun, and I love a couple like Sam & Brian who break out in dance parties in the middle of their bride/groom portraits. đŸ˜‚ 

I'm SO happy that I got to photograph this awesome couple from the moment Brian placed that gorgeous engagement ring on Sam's finger, to when he topped it off with a wedding band and made their forever together an official thing. These two are truly made for each other and it's so fun to capture!!

An incredible team of wedding professionals helped make this day as beautiful as it was! Scroll to the bottom for some shout-outs and awesome talent.

Ashley & Dakotah | Minneapolis Engagement

I laugh a lot with my job. I get to photograph awesome people who make me giggle consistently. But these two, they made me laugh so much that I developed a twitch in my cheek and got an ab workout during our session and I love them so much for it!! They are comfortable in their skin and even more comfortable in each other's arms - and it makes my job incredibly enjoyable. I'm counting down the days until I can have Ashley & Dakotah in front of my camera again on their wedding day... May of 2018 can't come soon enough!!

Mandy & John | Minneapolis Engagement

When my husband and I got married almost 5 years ago, we moved to Minneapolis into the most charming four-unit apartment building by Lake Nokomis. In the craziness of our moving in, amid boxes everywhere and wet paint on the walls, the sweetest girl with an equally sweet (freshly-made) loaf of banana bread knocked on our door to extend a welcome to the building. Her bright smile alongside the cutest neighborly gesture is something I've always been grateful for, and Mandy immediately made my hubby and I feel even more excited about moving to the "Big City". Since then, we had the pleasure of getting to know her and her fiance John - together they make one of the kindest and most adventurous couples I know. They have since moved to North Dakota and I couldn't be more thrilled that I get to travel to the U.S./Canadian border this fall for what is sure to be one of the most welcoming and fun weddings I've ever photographed! Their day can't come soon enough - but until then, check out how sweet these two are; especially making music together. Some of my favorite images I've ever taken!! :) 

Lindsey & Tad | Minneapolis Engagement

If you are: super chill, awesomely stylish, and love to giggle your hearts out - you might be my perfect client. Enter these two cuties who fit that bill perfectly!! It was a stunning evening in this beautiful city of ours with the most incredible golden light flooding the streets of St. Anthony Main. Lindsey & Tad flirted the night away and their superstar pup, Leopold, added an extra dash of charm that took the cuteness level of their session off the charts. Now to wait until I can photograph them again on their NYE wedding day... đŸ˜

Kathryn & John | Minneapolis Golf Club Wedding

Kathryn and I first met at this sweet wedding (cheers to you, Devin & Geo, for sharing me with K&J!!) and when John contacted me about photographing their proposal at the Stone Arch Bridge I was giddy with excitement. From there, I somehow became lucky enough that they decided they wanted me along for the full ride - their engagement session still remains a favorite of mine to this day, and now their wedding day is right up there with it. They have impeccable style, they know how to have REALLY great time (even when Mother Nature decides to pour rain on their entire day), and most of all they have a love for each other that is just SO amazing to witness. They've got it all figured out!!
