Lynette + Matt

LYNETTE + MATT FIVE EVENT CENTER MINNEAPOLIS, MN   Before we even arrived we knew it was going to be a special day for us. I mean, it wasn't even OUR wedding and it was a special day for US. Ha!  Many of you know Al and I were the directors at Luther Dell Bible Camp for 9 years before we started shooting weddings full time. Over those years we met thousands of people

  ALLISON CLASS OF 2017 LUCIUS WOODS PARK, SOLON SPRINGS   She only has a few weeks left to go until she's officially a high school graduate! One last softball season to rule the mound and then off to college in the fall to start the next chapter.  We had a lot of laughs and huddles behind trees to dodge the wind gusts but I kept saying the wind was giving her hair the super

    THE NORDS THEIR BACKYARD FOXBORO, WI We got the beautiful fluffy snow the night before and it stuck around all day for us!  It made for such a pretty backdrop, especially with the bright and cheery outfits they chose to wear. . Documenting this awesome family from the beginning of their story has been a highlight over the years. Watching Sy and Maylee growing up before my eyes is pretty amazing and confirming in the

    HANNAH + AUSTEN ST MATTHEWS LUTHERAN CHURCH, ESKO - MN DECC, DULUTH - MN   A note from the Bride... High school sweethearts? Yeah, they still exist! Austen and I met when I was 15 and he was 17... crazy right?! Austen and I knew who each other were and our families new each other, but Austen and I never really had chatted. It just so happened that Austen was hanging out with his buddies and

Claire + Zach

    CLAIRE + ZACH FAMILY FARM TWO HARBORS, MN     You never really know what you're getting yourself into when a client suggests having the photo shoot at their private residence. A family farm was promising but when I turned left to head down the canopied driveway I knew I was in for a treat.

Janelle + Eric

February 8, 2017

  JANELLE + ERIC LESTER PARK DULUTH - MN   I almost cancelled on these two because the wind was freezing my face off only two hours before the shoot. But... they're from Fargo and Chicago and I knew I couldn't be the wimp to cancel! I'm so glad I didn't! We were warm enough in the woods and the sun was shining and it was perfection.   I have an old standby - whenever you're in

  AMBER + BLAKE GRACE LUTHERAN + THE STEAKHOUSE LODGE HAYWARD, WI     Having known Amber for many years made it especially sweet to be there on her wedding day to capture all the big and little moments.  The wedding party included all of the bride and grooms siblings and Amber's dad preformed the ceremony as well, it as quite the family affair! Love at first sight, not the case for these two. They met at

  THE ROBERTS FAMILY FAMILY HOME SOLON SPRINGS, WI   When you grow up in a small town like Solon Springs you know (and are known) by everyone! The Roberts siblings to me were always laughing and just straight up fun to be around.  Fast forward to now and you know what?? They are STILL laughing and fun to be around! There are now 9 grand-kids in the mix and it's clear they are carrying

Amy + John

  AMY + JOHN LUMBER EXCHANGE BUILDING MINNEAPOLIS, MN   Amy + John's wedding was our last of 2016 and our first of 2017! New Years Eve weddings are so fun and extra glitzy and glamours! One of my ideas for 2017 was to have words from THE bride and groom to go along with their images. I think all of you reading would love to hear the real wedding stories from those who experienced
