  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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

  5. Katie & Mike | Wayzata Wedding Photography

    I have so many favorite things about Katie & Mike… First of all, they are both excellent huggers. Second, they laugh at my (really, truly dumb) jokes. Not just the nice, polite, our-photographer-has-a-screw-loose laugh but the nose scrunching, belly laugh that I love so dearly. Third? Katie’s dad mentioned Kimye in his toast and, honestly, it’s pretty high up there on my list of all-time favorite moments ever at a wedding. Anyone with a dad & father-in-law as awesome as that … Read More

  6. Emily & Tate | St. Paul Wedding Photography

    “He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced–or seemed to face–the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured … Read More

  7. Life in the In-Between

    Last week marked nine (really, truly incredible) years of marriage for Matt Oholendt and myself. Photo 2: Ryan Cummings, Photo 4: Gina Zeidler I don’t say that “really, truly incredible” thing lightly. Our marriage hasn’t been without it’s struggles or it’s weeks of disconnectedness or months (at times, years) of life being just being plain hard to handle. By the grace of God, those real life periods haven’t defined our marriage or made it weaker but, almost certainly, made it infinitely stronger. As … Read More

  8. Katharine & Tim | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

    This last winter was brutal. I don’t think I met a single person who had a good thing to say about how cold, how icy, how downright terrible the roads/ice dams/general “getting around” situation was. Even lifelong Minnesota residents were questioning their decision to live in this state year after year and when it gets that bad? What hope does a non-lifer Minnesotan like me have? But then March came. And then Katharine & Tim’s wedding arrived and the horrible … Read More

  9. Featured! Mindy & Thomas on Style Me Pretty

    Mindy & Thomas’ wedding had me at a loss for words from the very beginning and it’s such an honor that the team at Style Me Pretty felt the same way. Can’t wait to share more from this stunning day, but until then, you can see a curated gallery of beauty on the Style Me Pretty website. Grateful to my own little wedding dream team of FAB Event Design & Munster Rose who made Thomas & Mindy’s dreams come true and … Read More

  10. Featured! Wedding Wire Summerbook 2014

    My brain seems to work in adjectives. Amazing. Incredible. Chic. (Oh, they get better.) Refined Nautical. Casual Elegance.  Lakeside Wedded Bliss. This was one of the best of the best and it was an honor to be a part of it. Thanks to the folks at Wedding Wire for featuring Lisa & Chuck’s unbelievably beautiful lakefront affair. (See what I did there?) Super, duper thanks to Sarah Trotter at Lasting Impressions for just being so awesome and flat killing it … Read More
