  1. Margaret & Jonathan | Marine on St. Croix Wedding Photography

    “What the world needs now is love, sweet love It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of What the world needs now is love, sweet love No not just for some but for everyone.” Maggie & Jon. For the last week, my mind has constantly been thinking about the concept of love. Why it’s such an important notion. Why a little bit of it makes so much difference in this world. But most importantly, the reason it’s the foundation of … Read More

  2. Morgan & Jordyn | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

    I’m pretty sure my love of weddings can be traced back to one source. That scene in Love Actually where Kiera Knightly & Chiwetel Ejiofor’s characters have just gotten married and surprise(!), there’s a gospel choir singing “All You Need is Love”. She looks at her new husband like, “did you do this?” and he shakes his head and they both look at his best man who shrugs like, “hey, it’s no big thing” AND THEN INSTRUMENTS POP UP FROM … Read More

  3. Hackwith Design House introduces HDH Bridal…

    …and I die of happiness. It was an honor to be included in this gorgeous visual styling this past Spring of the absolutely stunning new HDH Bridal line by Hackwith Design House & Munster Rose. Two of my ultimate favorite lady bosses but also, two of my all-time favorite humans. I know what I’ll be wearing to every gala and could-potentially-require-a-fancy-outfit occasion ever. And it should be noted – HDH Bridal by Hackwith Design House is made right here in Saint Paul, … Read More

  4. Asea & Bob | St. Croix Engagement Photography

    It’s no secret I love happy, laughing people. In fact, I’m pretty certain it might be the way to my heart. Forget garden roses and Sour Patch Kids (or don’t, because those help), give me someone who’s natural preference is smiling or laughing and I’m quite sure we’re best friends already. Enter Asea & Bob and what I like to reference “the most wonderful & light-hearted evening on the St. Croix, probably ever”. I adore these two for their love for each … Read More

  5. Balck Family | Minneapolis Lifestyle Photography

    Little known fact. When I first started this business almost eight years ago, I was dead-set against photographing families. If I’m being honest, I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it. Between the pressure of getting that one photograph where everyone is smiling at the camera, the lack of control over the temperament or behavior of little ones who just want to be on the move and the high-intensity desire for perfection in making sure shirts were tucked in and hair was … Read More

  6. McKenzie & Anthony | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

    There are wedding days that I won’t ever stop obsessing over. This is one of them. Kenzie & Tony. From your best friends to your families to the day itself, but most importantly and above all, the bomb diggity couple of the year who treated me like family from the very beginning – I won’t ever stop loving your day and especially won’t ever stop loving you two. Thank you for everything. Now when can I come snuggle Scout (and hug you guys, … Read More

  7. Flannigan-Faleel Family | Maple Grove Lifestyle Photography

    Over the years I’ve had the chance to get this sweet family in front of my camera more than just a couple times and I can tell you one thing for certain. Kids grow so gosh darn fast. I mean, YES OBVIOUSLY. But to see it play out in Bodhi’s sweet cheeks from little baby to an almost-five-year old, I almost can’t handle it because those little baby cheeks at St. Anthony Main seem like yesterday. I guess maybe that is a … Read More

  8. Phyllis & Michael | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

    Their first date was on a motorcycle but don’t tell her parents that. Ok. Fine. Maybe the motorcycle ride was more of “hey, girl I like, want to take a drive on my new motorcycle?” than an actual first date and – maybe, just maybe – she was sincerely grateful for excuse of the motorcycle because it gave her a chance to wrap her arms around the chest of the boy she liked that ignited the spark of something bigger in both their … Read More

  9. Kelsey & Lance | Minneapolis Engagement Photography

    I don’t know about you but there’s a moment in every winter season where I think to myself, “I will never ever be warm again. EVER.” Kelsey & Lance’s engagement session was that day for me this past winter (and, I’m sure, for them too) which sounds….well…just really awful, right? But, for maybe the first time in my Minnesota-living life, it wasn’t. I know that must sound impossible but it is true. There was something pretty joyous (no, really, it was) … Read More

  10. Sarah & Phil | Minneapolis Engagement Photography

    So, here’s the thing about Engagement Sessions. You see, there’s a certain type of intimacy that comes with photographing someone; I find this to be true of lifestyle sessions, of course, but I especially find this within the confines of an engagement session. This is usually a couple’s first time in front of my camera and rarely, but it happens sometimes, it’s my first time meeting a groom or occasionally the couple themselves if they live out of state. And then I’m asking … Read More
