I don't think I've ever laughed so hard during a family shoot... seriously! And let's be honest, it's all Patti's fault! We love the Oestreichs and feel so darn blessed to have them in our lives. These are some amazing people!

It's always a treat to see the Ellis family! We shot some of their wedding photos in these exact same spots... 4+ years ago! Crazy how much can change is 4 years.
SARAH + DAVID SPIRIT MOUNTAIN + BRIGHTON BEACH DULUTH, MN It was a small, intimate, beautiful Sunday ceremony at Spirit Mountain followed with a lunch reception. Then later on a picnic dinner at Brighton Beach. Sarah's sister was her maid and David's brother was his man and Moses the pooch brought the rings down the aisle. Kudos to S+D for planning this Duluth wedding while living and working in England, where David is
It was sleeting/raining/snowing and the wind was blowing as we made our way to the Heartwood Retreat Center last weekend to shoot the I Do's of Jen + Rob! But by the time they were ready to see each other the rain stopped and by the time the guests arrived the sun was coming out! It was an amazing day at a beautiful place. Here are a few to enjoy!
KALYSTA + RYAN GREYSOLON BALLROOM DULUTH, MN Kalysta is one of the amazing staff at the Greysolon, and we've gotten to know her over the last couple years. She's always beautiful and we knew she would be amazing on her wedding day... but she was stunning. The moment we stepped off the elevator you could tell it was going to be an over-the-top party! There was a buzz in the air and everything
My sister Cynthia, and her wife Jonie, and family always bring a party... seriously, their family is a party in a minivan! We snapped a few fall photos to fill up their empty frames and laughed our way through the shoot. Nobody got hurt, no eyes were poked out, good times had by all! I wish all photoshoots ended with a pizza party and my nieces and a nephew running
Caleb and I had a good time shooting around Solon and in his own backyard. Hard to believe he'll be graduating in the spring!! Congrats!
One of my best friends in the whole world is having a baby... any day. Leah and Ryan are going to be amazing at parenthood and we're all just itchin to meet the newest Miss Rassmussen!!
Last weekend we celebrated with Nicole + Isaac and honestly fell in love with them and their story! Theirs is a true, straight from a Nicholas Sparks novel, love story. A Marine, both dog lovers, a chance meeting on the beach... the rest is history. I bet you'll fall in love with them too...
Seriously, I think we get to work with the funnest couples out there! Jenna + James came up to Duluth for their engagement shoot and after a quick change of plans (due to random festivals and crowds) we had a great shoot on the grounds at Glensheen and in Canal Park. My personal favorite is the sequence of Jenna giving James a wet willy... perfection! Can't wait to see these two
