Like a tall glass of champagne – Colleen & Micah’s understated, elegant, wonderful madison wedding

When I arrived to take photos of Colleen and Micah, Jessica (Colleen’s sister-in-law) remarked that in her gown, Colleen  looks like a tall glass of champagne. What a fine description for the totally elegant but understated charm that was Colleen & Micah’s wedding. That same simple charm speak a bit also to their relationship –…

Mid Century Modern Engagement in Vintage Theater {Molly & Andy}

Molly and Andy took a big leap to have a themed engagement session – they wanted something with a 60s feel, inspired by the album covers of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings – and it takes a lot of effort to pull that off! I was so impressed that they really committed to the…

Wisconsin Farm House Wedding of Friends {Ian & Liza}

Sometimes friendships just sneak up on you: I can’t really place when I became friends with Ian & Liza, but over the years of high school, summer camp, and then as adults, we just sort of fell into a comfortable friendship that I have grown to put the highest value on. I was honored when…

Woods Chapel wedding with Chinese Lion Dancers – Minneapolis

Its been a few years since Adrianne & Ian’s heartfelt Woods Chapel wedding, and yet it still sticks with me. Partially, I’ve loved seeing their family grow (I’ve been taking photos of their twins since they were newborns!) but that it only part of it. Seeing Ian’s joy to be with Adrianne still stands out…

Rail road track wedding photos {Northern Minnesota wedding photographer}

When I get a little bit of time with just the bride and groom, I love to find somewhere fabulous for a few photos. These tracks are no longer in use – they were behind the museum space where we took many of the wedding party portraits. I am conscious to never take photographs on…

Guthrie theater wedding ceremony {Meghann & Matt}

I first met Meghann a few weeks before her wedding to Matt when we talked about the details of her wedding ceremony at the Guthrie Theater. She also showed me an album of her years with Matt so far – the trips they took, the places they have lived, their celebrations and family. She wanted…

Wedding fashion shoot in Wisconsin Cranberry Bog {something different}

I am so very excited about these photos! Growing up, my mom always bought a freezer full of fresh cranberries in the fall to eat all year round. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I realized how unique that was, but now it is as much a part of my childhood as fresh…

Wedding in Kilkenny Ireland {destination wedding photographer}

Before I was blogging regularly, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Katie & Billy’s wedding in Ireland. Billy is from Ireland, and Katie’s family is Boston Irish, so there was a lot of merriment, a good amount of guiness, and lots of laughter. Shooting a wedding in Ireland was like a dream come true, and…
