A River Bend engagement session in near freezing temperatures? No problem for Melissa & Clark, the fun loving and adventurous duo. In fact, they even added their own donut toss finale! Oh man, these two are so hilarious. Clark made the most amazing faces between every shot (just a few included here for a laugh!) […]

Have you ever attended a Catholic wedding? This Nuptial Mass… I just can’t even. These two are literally the sweetest together and it was such an honor to capture Mary & Samuel’s day! Catholic Wedding Bliss You’ve heard the word bliss before. But have you seen it in action? Have you seen two people so grounded […]

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 […]

Oh friends! Sarah & Ross wove the most beautiful engagement session into being! Perhaps I am biased, because Sarah chose my favorite flower to adorn her beautiful tresses (brownie points if you can name it!)  It is never a good thing to arrive late, but if you must arrive late, let it be because you braided blooms into […]

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 […]

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 […]

The hazy light curving over the hills of River Bend in Faribault set the perfect stage for an engagement session. Tyler kept making Trisha laugh as he held her in the middle of the field and Zeus the german shepherd stayed loyal and close. (Really, I thought they had tried him to stay in the frame!) […]

It’s not everyday you get to shoot an engagement session where its a party of three: two finances and their doggie! An entourage came along to help Tucker the puppy behave well for his two masters. The team was a huge success! Sister and mother to the bride-to-be helped with wardrobe changes, hair arranging, and […]
