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 and anticipating problems. I learned how to build a fire, pilot a canoe, a keep stoic in the face of so many mosquitoes.

For Nick and Paula’s wedding, I added the skill of taking photos of people in a handmade boat. A very specific skill, but one I am terribly grateful for.
