Emily & Matt | Keller Golf Course Wedding

My job has a funny way of making different parts of my life resurface, and I have come to find that I absolutely adore the crazy coincidences that it brings along. Emily went to Augsburg with me and Matt went to my high school!! My worlds collided on their wedding day and it's little side stories like this that make my work even more fun than it already is. Like when you come to find that the groom's Best Man rode your school bus growing up! Haha! Spending a full day with Emily, Matt, and their amazing family and friends was the best way I could have asked to spend New Years Eve - I even got to steal a kiss from my hubby at midnight because he was my assistant that ran my photo booth! :) It's only once a year that midnight at a wedding means the photographer is still around, and it was totally worth staying the extra time to capture the 12:00am countdown and the bride & groom's first New Years smooch as husband and wife. This day was all-around spectacular!! E&M, thankyouthankyouthankyou for having me as your photographer. You two are the best kind of people and I'm grateful to have gotten to spend this time with you both!!

Ariel & Nick Engaged

Because WHY WOULDN'T I take advantage of my favorite 10 days of summer and do an engagement session at the Minnesota State Fair?!?! I have been trying for the last 4 years to get a fun, sweet couple to do a session there, and I think the patience served me well because Ariel & Nick couldn't have been the more perfect couple for me to get the chance to do this with!! I am so in love with these photos that I can barely stand it. I am so in love with this COUPLE that I can hardly believe I get to work with them throughout their engagement and into their wedding day. How incredibly awesome it is to watch this stage of people's relationships... love is so, so sweet. Add some Sweet Martha's Cookies to the mix and I'm almost in over my head. 

....Almost. ;) 

Mindy & Tim Married

If ever you need inspiration for a loving, silly, genuine relationship, look no further than these two right here. Their love is deep and true and they are the best kind of goofy together, and capturing it all has been such a joy!! I get sad when I realize that their wedding day has come and gone because I want another excuse to see their smiling faces. But for now, let's all just enjoy reliving their wedding day, shall we? Mindy & Tim know have amazing friends and family and they all sure know how to throw an awesome party. Enjoy!
