donek wedding

If you’ve followed my work at all, you know I can’t resist a backyard wedding….when the “backyard” is a gorgeous lake in Northern Minnesota on the border of Canada, it honestly can’t be beat. This day had it all…beautiful setting, a little sun shower during the ceremony for good luck, and the sweetest couple around.

It was less than a year and a half ago that I was capturing this lovely couple’s wedding, and now they’ve added a precious baby girl to the family. These two are some of my favorite people and I’m so happy for them and their perfect little gomper. :)

I feel as though I’ve been buried in weddings since spring, so it’s fun to mix it up a bit and do a senior session. This sweet girl’s mom is a good friend of mine so I’ve known her since she was little; and I’d occasionally pick her up from elementary school, go get her hopped up on chai tea and give her back to her mom. :) She is such a beauty inside and out, making this session so stinkin’ fun to do.

This wedding was everything an early summer wedding should be…..light, airy, and absolutely stunning. Not to mention the bride and groom are some of my absolute favorites. It made for such a fun wedding to photograph!

sears wedding

The spring/early summer wedding season has kept me insanely busy this year, and it’s reflected in my lack of posting. Now that I have a little breathing time, hopefully I can catch up a bit…..starting with this gem of a simple backyard wedding. Simple and sweet….just the way I like it.

hankins wedding

They say rain is good luck on your wedding day….in which case, this couple is super lucky. :) Although not ideal conditions for an outdoor wedding, the gloomy skies at such a gorgeously green venue sure made for pretty photos!

k + l engagement

Anyone who knows me, knows I will rarely speak highly of anything where it’s 100 degrees…..but this desert engagement session was absolutely dreamy. The Desert Botanical Gardens provided the most perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple’s session. The setting….that light….the couple….perfection. ❤

s + b engagement

This definitely goes in the books as one of my favorite engagement shoots to date. Not only was the couple gorgeous, they were so easy to work with. They had me pick the location (they’d never even seen it), and they had no problem hiking on the boulders in dress attire or standing at the base of a tree we were all allergic to. The results were definitely worth the sneezes the next day. Can’t wait for their wedding next year!
