Jeff + Gina // A Nordeast Mpls Engagement

These guys are so much fun to work with. We had a mini session in the Nordeast neighborhood of Minneapolis and I couldn't be happier with the images! Jeff and Gina were open to some creative ideas and all along, their love for eachother was so vivid. I can't wait for the wedding in April - congratulations!

Logan + Catherine // Nordeast MPLS & 612 Brewery Engagement

Logan, Catherine and I walked around NE Minneapolis and enjoyed the gorgeous Autumn scenery. We had so many laughs and from the moment we started shooting, I knew this partnership was going to be effortless. I'm super happy with how many of these images came out.

Among the stunning Autumn leaves and beautiful back drop of Minneapolis, you can see how genuine Logan and Catherine's love is. The sparkle is in their eye and I couldn't be more proud to snap the memories. Congratulations love birds!

Brad + Sochenda // Expecting

Brad and Sochenda hired me as their destination wedding photographer back in 2012. It's a blessing that we met and it's been a blast watching our friendship grow over the past few years. A few weeks ago we took a lovely Sunday afternoon to snap a few images as they're expecting their first baby. Congratulations Brad and Sochenda, we can't wait to meet the little guy!

Andy + Chelsea // Wayzata Wedding Photographer

Chelsea and Andy are dear friends of mine. When they asked me to capture their wedding day, I couldn't resist. It was a surreal wedding day, so many memories were made and I felt lucky to be able to photograph them. Andy and Chelsea, I hope these images bring you back to the wedding day. Even though the suit has been returned, the flowers are gone and the dress is preserved, your photographs will live on forever.

With love,

Grant + Karli // Duluth Destination Wedding

Grant and I go way back. We met while in architecture school in 2006 and traveled as fellow AIAS (American Institute of Architecture Students) members. Then, our paths fatefully crossed again when we became colleagues at a local architecture firm. It's amazing how a friendship can mature and blossom into something this special. When him and Karli asked me to be their wedding photographer, I was thrilled.

Some of my favorite images are along the shores of Lake Superior. The juxtaposition of thrashing waves and powerful natural elements against the glowing love of Grant and Karli strikes a chord with me. I hope it helps place you in that moment as well.
