First things first, in the above image the seagulls are not photo-shopped in, I promise! They were coming in for a landing right behind me where kids were dishing up popcorn. We survived, barely. Tina and Nick are getting married in just a few weeks and I'm SO glad they decided to squeeze in a last min e-session! We had a beautiful sunny evening... with bouts of awesome wind! Tina embraced

Basically a perfect evening at Amnicon Falls to capture these two vibrant, lovely folks! You can't sport an AWARD WINNING stache like Gabe's and NOT be awesome. Yes, as a matter of fact there are mustache contests and and this stache placed in the top three in it's category. We had a blast... so much fun though that we lost Alyssa's glasses... so if you happen to go for a hike
ELLYN + BRANDON MOORISH ROOM GREYSOLON PLAZA DULUTH, MN Destination Duluth, MN! We hadn't met yet in person until the day of the wedding... this happens when you are planning a wedding in Duluth but live in Maryland! They had vacationed in Duluth and the North Shore last summer and fell in love with it. Brandon's roots are in MN so it seemed like a good fit. Everything came together seamlessly. We were a little "star-struck"
A trip up the North Shore for an early evening of photo time with Marni + Jacques was a great way to spend a Tuesday! These two radiate fun and it makes me excited for their big day next summer. PS Green Eyes... wowza.
These two are so dang great together! We couldn't be happier for them and cannot wait to capture their wedding day coming up this December. I'm sure Lake Superior will be a bit chillier come December, but maybe we can convince them to do a few photos next to the water then too! Thanks for all the laughs and for taking me on a great little hike. Cheers!
AMBER + SAM DESTINATION WEDDING THOMASTON, MAINE part 3 Sunday Morning Shoot We thought it couldn't possibly get better... it did. Amber + Sam led us to a favorite beach of theirs on Sunday morning. Popham Beach was stunning. A+S got into their wedding attire (tousled hair and tennis shoes) and we spent an hour or two exploring the beach and literally soaking it in. The entire weekend was wonderful. If you've ever considered having a
AMBER + SAM DESTINATION WEDDING THOMASTON, MAINE WEDDING DAY part 2 Most wedding days are a bit busy with lots of running around, people setting up etc. Not these guys. The morning consisted of sleeping in, playing cards, picking their own bouquets from the wildflowers outside (then the neighbor stopped over and said go pick whatever they out of her garden.) Finally, after a nice relaxing shower (outside in the sail-boat shower) they started to
AMBER + SAM DESTINATION WEDDING THOMASTON, MAINE part 1 We love a good adventure - so when the opportunity came up to head East and capture Amber + Sam for a wedding weekend of perfection we were IN! It was both of our first time to the beautiful state of Maine and it surpassed our expectations. Arriving to the friends home where the wedding was going to take place (and the 13 guests would stay)
MAUREEN + MATTHEW COMO ZOO ENCHANTED GARDEN + CONSERVATORY We were so excited to shoot with these two at the Como Zoo and Conservatory! You couldn't ask for more gorgeous landscaping than what you get there. It was a beautiful day, a bit on the warm side... so warm in fact that the historic Cafesjian Carousel had to be shut down. However, with a little "begging" on Al's part and a smile from
NICOLE + CHRIS LUTSEN RESORT NORTH SHORE, MN There was a trend throughout the day that really resonated with me - it went along the lines of "Life is a Journey, not a destination" and to enjoy the journey. Nicole and Chris had 200+ years of combined friendships with their wedding party and a million stories from their relationship that kept coming back to that phrase. Even the idea of having a destination
