r + a engagement

These two were struggling to decide between doing a natural background, or a more urban setting….so we just did both. I love the contrast of the two different looks! Can’t wait for their early fall wedding, at one of my favorite venues!

m + k engagement

These two are getting married in California in the fall; with a cliff, set in the pines, overlooking the ocean as their venue. Completely drool worthy….I know. They wanted something a little different for their engagement photos so they decided to do them in Prescott while visiting family. We finally got a cloudy day here in AZ and I’m so thankful. It set the perfect backdrop for their adorable session.

With all the lovely weather we’ve had this fall, this day was definitely not ideal….chilly temps and super windy. These guys were troopers though, and it was so fun to get to photograph these adorable little girls! In about 14 years Eddie is gonna have his work cut out for him. ;)

It’s been a whirlwind of shoots lately, and I’m finally now getting the chance to edit some of the past couple months sessions for the web. This was a such a sweet session with an adorable family that is about to grow by two more precious babies. Although you’d never guess it by looking at Holly, they’ll be welcoming twin boys next month!

bruce wedding

I’ve been lucky to have multiple backyard weddings this year that have proven you don’t necessarily need a big, fancy venue to have a beautiful day. This was definitely the case for this wedding….it was low key, simple, and oh so lovely. Doesn’t hurt that the bride and groom were a ridiculously striking couple too. :)

Last year when taking my maternity/family photos, I made Jess shoot through the thickest falling snow ever. It made for such a gorgeous backdrop, but it also made it hell on Jess being she couldn’t even use auto focus on her camera it was so heavy. I should have known when we set a date for her family photos, it was was going to snow like crazy. Payback it rough. :) Luckily it let up just before our shoot time and left us with just the most perfect blanket of freshly fallen snow.

lindstrom wedding

Fall is a tricky time for weddings in northern Minnesota. It’s so hard to time when the leaves are going to change and when the weather is going to turn nasty. This couple timed it perfect though, and it made for such a lovely wedding day.

noland wedding

When Jess first described to me the plans for her simple, boho backyard wedding, my first thought naturally was….are we the same person? Turns out we’re not, but man do we have similar taste. This gorgeous wedding goes to show that you’d don’t need anything extravagant to make for a beautiful day. The wedding was small, flawless and so filled with love. Definitely one of my favorites to date.
