Amy & Steven | Cragun's Legacy Golf Course

I was only with Amy & Steven for a short 5 hours of their wedding day, and yet I felt no shortage of love or joy in my time with them. In fact, they're one of those couples that exude SO much excitement and happiness in every moment together that you can't help but feel energized about life once you leave them!

Their day was perfect in every sense of the word. From the beautiful sunny weather, to the ever-lasting fall colors that we experienced last season, to the family and friends involved in their day - it was so fun to be involved in this wonderful day. Enjoy this small peek into Amy & Steven's wedding!

Chelsie & Mike | Madden's on Gull Lake Wedding

The Brainerd Lakes area has always had my heart, so getting the chance to travel Up North for the wedding of Chelsie & Mike was an extra special opportunity for me to capture love and spend some time in a place that I love. Madden's has undergone some incredible facelifts in the past year due to some severe weather that came through the area, and WOW was it ever a stunning place to photograph!! C&M are made for each other, their families and friends are a joy to be around, and I am just so happy that I had the chance to get to know this amazing couple through this crazy time in their life together. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Gontarek!! You deserve every ounce of happiness and love that you felt on your wonderful wedding day.
