Oh friends, this purple June wedding was such a joy to capture! This tight knit family and friends filled the Gardens of Castle rock with a truly joyful anticipation. The voices of many kids running on the green grass, the multiplication of happy tears, and the amazing expression of joyful surprise are memories I cherish […]

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”? […]

Gretchen walked through the elegant reception tables of the 3 Ten Event Venue with her hands over her mouth. The ceremony space was prepared for its reveal. Approaching her altar installation, I heard Gretchen’s voice through tears: “It’s beautiful.” Beholding the intention and design, she walked nearer and then circled back to her mother for a […]

I am absolutely thrilled to write about Chloe & Taylor’s wedding at The Grand! This excitement came from the ashes of a devastating day in March. Just days before their wedding date, coronavirus forced The Grand to call with horrible, devastating news: there would be no wedding that Saturday. COViD-19 lockdowns began. The shock of such […]

As a photographer, taking a friend out for a Lakeville anniversary session couldn’t be met with anything but joy! Add in golden light, a hillside, a gorgeous couple, and WOW. Why am I still surprised how beautifully Minnesota can kind of look like Ireland? Lakeville Anniversary Photos Toni & Dusty made my work so easy. As […]

Finding a dream job is hard work. You’ve heard it before. Either inside your own brain or from someone else’s lips: complaints about a current job and desire to find a custom-tailored job that would allow for more freedom (and perhaps a raise!). I can tell you from experience: dreams don’t come cheap! I’ve now […]

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 […]
