Looking through my parents’ heirloom wedding album not only gave me a glimpse into what life was like when they got married but the act of my parents sharing their photographs with me created an experience and a memory that I’ll never forget. That’s the power of heirloom wedding albums! That’s why it’s still so important to put your digital wedding photographs into a physical heirloom album. The one place my clients choose to spend extra money is on their wedding album!

Let’s get a little personal for a moment, shall we? Take a quick peek into my house and see how Matt and I incorporate our own photos into our daily lives throughout our home.
Colleen and Andrew’s Leap Day wedding at The Semple Mansion in Minneapolis, MN was one I’ll never forget in a million years. Not just because it was on Leap Day and we only get that opportunity once every four years, but also because Colleen, Andrew, and their entire crew were so thoroughly invested – mind, body, heart, and soul – in celebrating their love that it would have changed the heart of any jaded cynic (if there had been any around that is).

Ask any photographer and they’ll tell you it’s not the gear that makes the photographer, it’s the person behind the gear.
Over the course of a the last few years, I’ve discovered that I truly am, despite my best efforts, a semi-Type A, hyper-organizational dork. Seriously, I geek out over spreadsheets, organized folders (gimme those folders within folders)!
Bridal and groom detail photos – you love them, you need them, you gotta have them! But what do you need to gather so your photographer can make your detail photos the envy of brides and grooms everywhere?

I bet you $1000 that Sierra and Beau did not anticipate snow on their October wedding when they started their wedding planning. Sure, it’s not totally uncommon to have snow in October in good ol’ Minnesota. But when it does, it’s usually in late October…not in the middle of the freaking month! Despite the wind, […]
Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.
We just wanted to say thank you again so much for your amazing work. You were seriously incredible to work with and we loved the locations you suggested for both our engagement shoot and the spots in Stillwater. We were very worried about getting professional photos done since we had never done it before, but you made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you!
There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!
Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!
My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.
I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
