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 […]

The beauty of Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church jumps out from the streets of St. Paul. Sweet neighborhoods flank this striking building and somehow despite its height, it feels fitting. Photographing the details of this church wasn’t just fun – Daniel had specifically asked me to capture the architecture on their wedding day! Susie […]

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 […]

I pulled into the countryside of Ross & Sarah’s wedding venue thinking I walked into a dream. The greens and ochres of the meadow and fields framed white rows of ceremony chairs and a swath of white fabric fluttered in the breeze, dancing in the sun. This scenery got me so excited– and then I […]

A Whitetail Woods Wedding– doesn’t that just sound so romantic? Not only is it alliterative (three w’s in a row!), but it makes me feel as though deer should be prancing in meadows with golden light spilling over the prairie. Kate & Justin’s wedding felt like that– joyful, authentic, and filled with sunflowers. These two […]

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 […]

The nuptial mass held at the Church of St. Dominic in Northfield drew close friends together to bless the marriage of Lisa & Kristjan. True friends sang as cantor, played as pianist, and stood to bear witness to the union. A wedding enjoyable in its simplicity. As the couple ascended the steps to declare their […]

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!) […]
