allie maternity

Rarely do the words “glam” and “9 months pregnant” go together….but they definitely do with this lovely lady! This desert maternity shoot was so dang fun….and the results are so beautiful. The saguaros….that light….the gorgeous gal…it will be a hard one to beat!

marquez wedding

This wedding marked the end of my 2018 wedding season….and what a lovely finish it was. The ceremony took place at a gorgeous historic cathedral in downtown Tucson and the reception was held at the nearby JW Marriott Starr Pass, with the most stunning desert backdrop. At the risk of betraying my northern roots….there’s nothing quite like that soft desert light. ❤

jackson wedding

If you were to ask me to dream up a wedding to photograph, it would probably look something like this. I met this lovely couple for an engagement session in AZ, and they told me about their wedding the following year taking place cliff-side in California. I remember thinking how lucky their photographer was gonna be; and then a few months later they asked if I’d be willing to travel. Needless to say they didn’t have to twist my arm. The stunning cliffs of Big Sur, CA provided the perfect setting for this gorgeous wedding….from the beautiful resort, to the flowers, to the accessories, not a detail was overlooked. If anyone else wants to have a cliff-side wedding, please sign me up.

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….

de la cruz family

One of my favorite things as a photographer to be able to watch families grow. I’ve known this sweet family for a few years now, so it was so fun to be able to do a fall family session with their gorgeous little girls. The leaves were perfect….the day was gorgeous….and the family was adorable. :)

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. :)

To say that this shoot started a little rocky would be a bit of an understatement! This little sweetie had missed her nap, so photos were the last thing she wanted to do. She wouldn’t even look at me for about the first 30 minutes. Luckily, I have a toddler…..I don’t break easily. And by the last 10 minutes of her shoot, she really warmed up to me! ;)

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….

j + m maternity

I was so happy I was able to coordinate with these two for a maternity shoot while I was back in MN! People honestly don’t come any sweeter, and their love and excitement for their little one on the way was so fun to capture. With these two as parents, she’s going to be one blessed babe!
