Everything about this styled shoot was magic. Ok, maybe not the car crash my second shooter and I were in that totaled my poor Jetta whilst on our way home from the shoot…but everything else was pure magic! Kelly, from Big Rock Creek, approached me about a year ago with the idea of putting together […]

When one plans a winter wedding in Minnesota, one usually expects to deal with the threat of snow and perhaps a blizzard. One does not expect to deal with rain, and certainly not rain that turns into 100% ice the morning of your wedding. Luckily, someone was watching over Haley and Erick’s wedding because everything […]

Lauren, Matt, my associate Danielle, and I met at the Minnesota Wedding Guide’s Wedding Fair in mid-October and there was an immediate connection.

You said yes to the dress, you found the perfect shoes, and now you’re on the quest to find those oh so special bridal accessories. We’re talking earrings, necklaces, and bracelets – all of the items that will complete your wedding day look.

But you don’t want just any jewelry. You don’t want jewelry that a hundred other brides will wear on their weddings, right? You want bling that’s just as unique and one-of-a-kind as your ring and your dress. In other words, you want custom designed pieces, hand-crafted by individuals who care about you.

Talk about perfection. Karen and Matt’s Muse Event Center wedding in Downtown Minneapolis, MN was the definition of the perfect Fall wedding. The sun was out but it wasn’t too hot, the shade was cool but not cold, the décor and venue were astonishingly beautiful, and the company…the company was warm, goofy, and filled with so much love.

Annie and Phil’s family farm wedding in Chisago City, MN was, in one word, magical. Weather reports did not look favorable – strong thunderstorms were likely and it was raining on the drive up – but as soon as we arrived to Annie’s sister’s house, the sky opened up and the sun started to shine.

Ever since FIVE Event Center in Uptown Minneapolis, MN opened it’s doors I’ve been dreaming about photographing a wedding there. Kory and Andrew made that dream a reality with their gorgeous wedding.

And when I say gorgeous, I mean GORG.E.OUS! If there was an award for the best dressed wedding party and family, it would, without a doubt, go to Kory and Andrew’ and their peeps.
