Today’s spring wedding inspiration comes from an stunning styled shoot at Brighton Abbey in Texas! Let me begin by saying: I’m thrilled to share some spring visual poetry with you. Traveling to Brighton Abbey was what dreams are made of. Truly. I mean, how can you not love 70 degree weather (when it’s winter at […]

What gorgeous weather for a St. Paul Wedding! Molly & Ezra made the difficult and beautiful choice to keep their wedding in 2020 but to change their venue. I echo what the minister said during the ceremony: “I am proud of you two!” Augustana Lutheran Church provided such a glorious spot for first looks and […]

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 […]

Friends, this Apple Valley wedding will make you smile! Angy & Mario crafted a day as stress-free and beautiful as they are themselves. You may remember their engagement session where I spoke highly of their ability to be chill. Well, this truth was proven again. Showing that once again, coronavirus can alter but not cancel […]

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 […]

The older sister of the bride stepped up to the microphone under the spacious white tent of The Gardens of Castle Rock during a June wedding. She admitted she didn’t know exactly what to say for her toast during the reception… so she decided she would sing her toast! Moana and Frozen soundtracks were revamped into a […]

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 […]

I knew Selena & Kyle would rock their engagement session, so I took them to two of my favorite spots. The St. Olaf Natural lands becomes a buttery flame during the golden hour, and I was so thrilled we didn’t leave early when the mosquitoes tried to bully us out. Trusting me as photographer is a […]

Many wedding ceremonies feature music of some kind, and often the bride and groom sing along with their guests. But on Sunday, June 30th, 2019, the promenade of the Gardens of Castle Rock was not hosting merely music: it was hosting worship of the One True God. The bride and groom led the way with […]
