Minnesota Lake Wedding Nancy and Tiffany

I’ve had a difficult time blogging Nancy and Tiffany’s wedding. Not because it was hard to choose images, but because by blogging it I’m sort of putting an end marker on our time together. I don’t really want to magic to end, I suppose. Which is to say, it’s taken me like a year to…

Minnesota backyard Wedding Mike and Scott

On evolving families and this Minnesota backyard wedding Families are strange and amazing things. Even though they feel permanent, the specifics change constantly – people age and marry, new people become family, others leave or pass away. People move to new cities and states.  There is never a moment that is the platonic ideal of a family, and…
