lavrisha wedding

Fall can’t be beat in Northern Minnesota. But I will admit it’s tricky to time, as every year is different. This couple couldn’t have been luckier with the timing. The leaves were at peak, and it hadn’t turned too cold yet. Well, I guess that point could be argued. It was 36 degrees….but I wasn’t the one in a sleeveless gown. :) I had so much fun capturing their stunning day.

e + s engagement

I adore this couple. I did small shoot for them in the spring and they were seriously the sweetest. When Sam contacted me that he wanted to do an engagement shoot when they were visiting again this fall, I was so excited! And a little nervous as I didn’t want to spoil any surprises. Seriously though….what guy thinks ahead enough and books the engagement shoot for their trip, prior to proposing?! I’m so glad he did because these two are so stinkin’ beautiful together….

hearl wedding

This beautiful autumn wedding was definitely planned with their guests in mind. From the lovely venue, to having the delicious Rosa’s Italian restaurant cater the buffet, to having a donut bar in lieu of a cake…..I definitely wasn’t complaining. It was such an enjoyable wedding to shoot!

There couldn’t have been a prettier day for this adorable couple’s wedding. Set at the lovely American Ranch, every detail was picture perfect; making it such a fun wedding to capture. And that gown…..it doesn’t get better!

knightly wedding

I really have grown to love the desert…..I just wish it was a little cooler. ;) Even with the 104 degree temps….this was such a fun wedding to shoot! The bride wanted to make sure their fur babies were involved in their big day, so she rode to the aisle on her horse; and their two doggies made an appearance in the bridal party. The kind of stuff wedding photographers dream of. Plus it never hurts when the couple is wildly attractive and some of the nicest people around. Congrats Mike and Kasey!

camacho wedding

When envisioning a gorgeous, end of summer wedding, my guess would be most people would think of something resembling this wedding. Every detail was absolutely perfect, and just when you thought it couldn’t get better….they brought out the donuts…..

mundt wedding

This couple had to deal with every bride and groom’s nightmare…..their original photographer had to cancel on them 10 days prior to their wedding. 10 days. As luck would have it, I was scheduled to be in the area the weekend before and was able to extend my trip to capture their big day. I’m so glad it worked out because these two were so great to work with….and not to mention their wedding was drop dead gorgeous….

reed wedding

This lovely Wisconsin wedding took place in a pioneer church, dating back to 1868; and the reception was held at a family farm surrounded by rolling fields and the bride’s uncle’s vintage car collection. Even with the mid-ninety temps and high humidity, this was such a fun wedding to photograph. And it’s worth mentioning, the bride’s cousin hands down gets the award for best dance rendition of “Billie Jean”….we’re talking giving Michael a run for his money. :)

a + d wedding

Small, intimate weddings have officially won my heart. This recent Gunflint Trail wedding was no exception. Set at the lovely Poplar Haus, officiated by the brides sister, and with only the couple’s closest family and friends in attendance…there was nothing but love in this couple’s big day. Love and a really beautiful setting….
