I had just finished photographing Alex & Joe’s husband and wife photos, and we returned to the Grand for their reception. Right before we entered I remembered to ask them if they wanted a photo with their marquee! (I mean, how could you not want that when your sign reads, “I Do with the Donahoes”? […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
