Fiona and Mark chose THE most magical spot in Minnesota nature for a golden hour engagement session. Steeplechase offers the immense beauty of rolling hills as well as the view to best them all. Fiona hails from Maine, and I love how the grandeur of this view blows me away almost as much as Acadia […]

As a Minnesota Photographer, winter multiplies my excitement for sunny days. Traveling back to spring and summer as I curated this collection of images made me smile! I simply cannot wait to share the Best of Weddings with you this year! I can’t believe that in 2020 – the year-that-shall-not-be-named – I photographed more wedding […]

Engagement sessions are such a wonderful icebreaker for photographers–and what easier way than with a sweet puppy! Angy & Mario’s engagement photos reflect the one topic I love to educate my clients about: stepping into confidence that yes, you can look good on camera. The number one concern for these two was not that their wedding day would […]

To photograph in Northfield, Minnesota offers many iconic vistas. The city is proud of its bridges, its fountain, the surrounding fields,  the two colleges, and natural lands. One thing became clear as I began Elise & Renato’s session: we had to get to the riverside gazebo. Both independently shared with me the prominence of this location in their […]

As a photographer, you know your clients are truly invested when they book you for an engagement session in January (in Minnesota!) Usually the morbidly low temperatures around here keep visitors out of our state, but this year we had exactly freezing weather! (And those in Minnesota clap their hands! 32 degrees is balmy!) I am […]

The photograph above is definitely one of my favorite wedding photos – the joy of saying “I do!” (This is basically what my happy dance looks like, except Evan wins in the height department!) As a solo-prenuer (aka the only one behind the face of Jennifer Sanders Photography), I am so often smiling behind my […]

Nothing can be more thrilling to me than a hometown wedding–especially one in Northfield, Minnesota! (Seriously, local is best!) Selena & Kyle’s  Church of St. Dominic’s wedding took stage on one of the last gorgeous days of fall, and how the sun shone! One of my favorite moments took place during the reception at the […]

What a joy to share this Owatonna Fairgrounds wedding with you today! I’ll begin my story with entering the venue. I pulled into the Owatonna Foundation Building still praying for sunshine. The chill and misty damp just wasn’t what I wanted for a bride on her wedding day! (Seriously, Minnesota – it was just the […]

When I first pulled into Murphy Hanrehan Park Reserve, about fifty bikers were unloading their gear and headed to practice! Ever since our Caribou Coffee meeting, I’ve been astounded by the warmth of Anna & Corey. They gave me hugs! I was not surprised to find this warmth and joy in their engagement session as […]
