Norskedalen Driftless WI Wedding – Robin and Logan

Norskedalen heritage center is a mouthful to pronounce and a place you would never just stumble into, but the preserved farm houses and shelters make for amazing views of the hills in all directions. And those hills made for an amazing backdrop for late night fireworks illuminated by the misty evening.

Its only a part of their love story – one location out of many, one day out of thousands. But it was a hell of a celebration, and the marking of a great partnership.

Taylors Falls Engagement Photos – Dani and Alex

We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.-Robert Louis Stevenson I used to be a camp counselor – a huge part of who I am and what I value comes from those summers spent hiking on trails, responsible for the safety and adventure of other kids, finding a voice for myself.

Paula & Nicks Northern Minnesota Cabin and Lake Wedding

I’ve been going through weddings from past years, updating the photos and revising the text and I was thrilled to look through the weddings from this Northwoods MN wedding again. Paula and Nick’s wedding was classic Northern Minnesota – a handmade wooden boat for two, fireworks from their family cabin, and a tent full of loved ones. I often talk about my “bag of tricks” when I talk about wedding photography. I’ve developed this back of skills and ideas over the course of my entire life – from my days as a camp counselor I learned the importance of gratitude…
