  1. 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

  2. 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

    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

  4. 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

    “Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” ― Shel Silverstein

  6. Kelsey & John | Minneapolis Engagement Photography

    You guys, I love the rain. I really, really do. I love the rain so much that it’s included in part of my bio section on this website. Give me a rainy day, an empty calendar and a great book and you can find me wrapped up in a blanket enjoying my own personal version of heaven. But, there’s one caveat to my rain-loving spirit and that’s when I have a camera in my hand. Not because I don’t think it isn’t … Read More

  7. Carrie & Aaron | Minneapolis Engagement Photography

    These two win (at life but also) with the cutest “how we met” story of all time. He was her massage therapist. She was his client. A story with a potentially scandalous beginning but, don’t you even worry, instead it’s super wholesome and adorable. She asked him out. They went on a group date. Fell in love before the night was over. No scandals, just true love. And a poodle named Felix. Who has a better Instagram than I do. Carrie … Read More

  8. Kelsey & Paco | Wisconsin Wedding Photography

    “The rest, as they say, is history.” It’s a funny little phrase, right? More often than not, condensing the whole of a story into 7 insignificant words. Skimming over the good parts, the hard parts, the triumphant parts and the parts we’d rather forget and turning it into history. But, often, the entirety of what our history is made up of are the parts that truly make a story. The parts that will tell you that Kelsey & Paco’s wedding was a beautiful … Read More

  9. Molly & Ryan | Chicago Engagement Photography

    This was the day I officially fell for Chicago. It’s possible it could have been this was the first time I had viewed the Windy City through a camera lens. It’s likely it had something to do with Bachelorette contestant conversations while our Uber driver rolled his eyes next to me. It’s plausible that it had to do with the rain clouds that rolled in thick and heavy, emptied the busy streets and made those river bridges just that much more romantic … Read More

  10. Anna & Chas | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

    High School Sweethearts. I’ve always been in love with that concept. And not just because Matt Oholendt was my first kiss but also because it has an old fashioned sort of quality to it. A love that transcends age and matures from itty bitty baby love to deep, real, meaning-filled kind of love. I mean. That’s the stuff movies starring Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling are made of. Am I right? Right. Anna & Chas. I love your love for each other. … Read More
