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

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!! :) 

Chelsea & Eric | Bauhaus Brew Labs Engagement

Chelsea (a.k.a. 'Fitzy' forever in my mind) was a good friend of mine back in my glorious gymnastics days. We'd spend 4+ days a week giggling, tumbling, and learning insane skills alongside our awesome teammates. It was an incredibly huge part of my life, and those girls I spent all that time with will always mean a lot to me and my childhood. When Fitzy reached out to me about photographing her winter wedding in Stillwater, I danced in my chair and and got crazy excited at the chance to see her again after all these years. Spending time with her and Eric (and of course, their pup Silvia) was a blast, and I love seeing the love and comfort that my old friends have found in their adult lives - my job is quite literally the coolest!! I'm SO excited for these two and even more excited that I get to spend this time with them and capture their relationship! These two are super cute, so prepare for your cheeks to hurt after browsing their engagement sesh! :) 

Chelsie & Mike Engaged

Holy cow I love this session!! Spring trees were in full bloom, Chelsie & Mike were so easy and so natural to work with, and we had the most beautiful evening with stunning colors that resulted in this drop-dead-gorgeous engagement session. The laughter was abundant and I'm already anxious to have their wedding come around this fall to experience it all again with them!!
