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.

This was such a fun shoot to do! This gorgeous gal is in the running for Miss AZ….and it’s not hard to see why! She needed a portfolio shoot and I’m so happy she found me. She’s so stinkin’ photogenic and seriously nailed every single pose idea I gave her. I can’t wait to work with this pretty gal again!

t + g wedding

If rain on a wedding day is good luck….this couple is going to be the luckiest couple ever. It seriously never…stopped…raining. And of course they had planned for the sweetest little ceremony and reception to be outside. Needless to say, that didn’t happen. But between using roofs, dodging drops, and a giant umbrella, we were still able to get some of my favorite wedding photos to date!

As this pair had planned just a small civil ceremony in Phoenix, when they were up here elk hunting, they wanted to do an “engagement” type shoot. Any couple that can go hunting together and still decide to get married….I’m impressed. :) These two were such a blast to work with and I couldn’t be happier for them!

L Family

I’ve been taking this little guy’s pictures since he was just a little gomper….and it was so enjoyable to shoot the whole family this time….doggy included. Speaking of which, just know that if you bring your pup to a shoot….there’s a good chance you’ll get just as many photos of just your dog, as family images. I love dogs. :)
