We hadn’t met in person yet, so it was a little awkward waiting in the parking lot for Amanda + Scott to arrive. I’m sure all the other patrons coming to enjoy a beautiful afternoon at Lester Park felt like they were being watched by the creepy photographer lady.  However, as soon as they pulled in I knew we were going to have some fun! They brought their lab, Divot, who was a total champ. Make sure to scroll to the end of the post to see some serious concentration by him!

These two have a fantastic story that started back in High School in Virginia, MN. It took them to Germany and all the way back to Duluth where they’ve settled into a beautiful life! Can’t wait to celebrate the beginning of their next chapter!

Caralyn + Jake

One of the best perks of being a wedding photographer is all the beautiful fall engagement sessions you get to take part in! I’m serious! I got invited along for a hike in Hartley with Caralyn + Jake to capture the overlook, the pines and the colors of some of their favorite spots. It’s been just over a week since the shoot and I’m sure all the leaves have already dropped but when you get the colors and the sunshine and a couple who are up for some fun it creates magic!  I’m looking forward to next summers wedding which will also provide some beautiful Lake Superior views.

Favorite details about these two… they designed Caralyn’s engagement ring together and they’re both architects. Smarty pants.

It’s hard to say if we’ve ever met another couple who had as much fun together on their wedding day as Alyssa + Gabe.  The best man said it during his toast, you can’t help but have fun when Gabe is around. From the “first look” of the day to the epic garter dance/removal there were countless moments of full out laughter! We can be rest assured their marriage is going to last!

The day started at the brand new Holiday Inn Express where everyone was getting ready. The lobby served as a great spot for a first look and a few moments of fun and then we headed out to the golf course for wedding party photos and shenanigans.  Then to the ceremony where they pinky promised to love each other forever and danced down the aisle to the Muppets.  Other highlights included the classic car, the most adorable ring bearer (their pup Gus), confetti, a unicorn break dancer, champion mustache on full display, cookies and milk, two caricature artists and THE BEST garter removal dance we’ve been witness to.  Needless to say, Alyssa and Gabe threw an amazing party and we have no doubt everyone had a blast celebrating them!

We were so excited to finally meet Matt!! We’ve known Angela… gosh… 10 years? Heard all about him, felt like we knew him because we stalked him on Facebook of course. Well, in person he lives up to all the hype. These two are the dynamic duo, power couple, two peas in a pod. I have a feeling they’ll be our “famous” friends someday!

We met up at Indian Mounds Park where Matt had proposed. Got a few photos of their favorite city’s skyline and even some fall colors! Then headed into the city for a few photo stops before we ended the evening with a delicious dinner.  It was such a beautiful evening we ate on the patio and started the meal with cheese curds. Yum.  We headed home and they headed to their last volleyball tournament, which they took first place in! I’m thinking it was the cheese curds.


Can’t wait to celebrate in a few months!!

Getting to capture these two now, after 5 years of marriage, was pretty awesome. They both trusted us years ago as we did their high school senior shoots, prom photos together, then their engagement photos and family shoots over the years.  They have what we hope for all of you, to be best friends and still in love after 5 years. Plus, if you’re super lucky, you get to be dog parents to a sweet pooch like Marley!  We did something we’ve never done, but have wanted to, with these two. It was their request even! We did a sunrise shoot! There wasn’t really a big beautiful sunrise blasting color all over the sky but it was so beautiful out on their property on the river and in the pines. Cheers to 5 years and to another 55!

It was just about a year ago when we first met Jason, he was the officiant/pastor for a wedding we were shooting.  His message at the wedding was so powerful and honest. We instantly liked the guy, plus he wore a hat, we liked the hat.

Fast forward a few months and we found our family was needing a change. We had put church on the back burner because it was tough for us to get up early on Sunday mornings and go… I know, it’s a lame excuse. But we shoot weddings almost every Sat night and often they are out of town and our kids would be spending the night with grandma.  Bla bla bla. We started to think we should go to this Sun night church we’d heard about and that guy in the hat was the pastor there. Well… we went, we loved, we stayed. City Church is it’s name. AND huge bonus, Jason’s family is all girls and they rock.
We met up with the Rhoads at Billings Park in Superior and then ended the shoot in their urban oasis and chowed on homemade pizza.  Pretty great photoshoot!

These guys just happen to be some of our most favorite people on the planet. Yep. LOVE them. PLUS they’re family, so bonus for us all!
And, we need to figure out how to slow down these years… these “little” kids are growing up and turning into super awesome big kids.

As a photographer, there is no greater compliment then being requested to shoot multiple weddings for the same family. Jamie was her sisters MOH a couple years ago while we had been the photographers so she had the full ON3/Al + Lyndsey experience already and knew what she was getting herself into! Plus, reconnecting with her family was such a treat for us.

When we had talked about photos with the wedding party Jamie had thought Brighton Beach would be nice… but the Inline marathon threw a monkey wrench into that plan and we opted for Lester Park. I’m thinking the plan B worked out perfectly! The wedding party was a blast and after much discussion decided to call themselves “Homies In The Park”…  A favorite detail of ours was Jamie’s shawl that her mom handmade for her. After Lester Park we headed back to Northland for a few more photos with family before the main event.

Northland Country Club was in full fall beauty and the outdoor ceremony/social hour was perfect for the guests to soak it all in. The florals were stunning thanks to Saffron and Grey, Sounds Unlimited brought the party, How Sweet It Is brought the dessert and Derick Cich pampered Jamie with her beautiful, classic makeup.

Let’s just say the day didn’t start off like anyone expected or could have imagined. When we showed up to find that Alicia and Jared and their daughter (the most adorable flower girl there ever was!) were in the ER we had a sinking feeling the day could be ruined… but nope, not at all. These two are absolutely incredible and just a few hours behind schedule meant nothing! Everyone is fine and Elle sported an extra cool pink cast on her finger for her walk down the aisle! She also sported the fluffiest, sweetest dress ever made.


The Greysolon Ballroom was stunning with the help of Northland Special Events  plus Alicia’s killer eye for detail and beauty took it all to a new level.  A favorite detail of mine was Alicia’s ornately detailed cape. After the ceremony we had some time on the big lake to capture A+J as they took in the moment, her veil blowing in the wind, enjoying a beautiful evening in Duluth! Then back for the grand entrance and a couple hundred excited friends and family to party the night with.


Congratulations to your beautiful family!

A beautiful couple, a relaxed engagement shoot, outside, at a park, with a dog, right before a storm…. all of that together made for a perfect evening with these two.  So much fun to capture their love and goofiness! I might add their darling lab was such a sweetie.  Looking forward to capturing their wedding day in 2017!
