I have been photographing this family since Becca and Tyler first got engaged. It's been a real honor to be there for engagements, wedding photos, maternity photos, newborn photos, and onward. I love to see love blossom, families grow, and kiddos learn to walk and talk. It's such a treat to have a family keep coming back over time so I can keep being a part of keeping their memories.
We loved getting to photographed these girls with a fun Valentine theme! We think we should have balloons at all our indoor sessions. They made it so much more fun!
This wedding took place on a day in January when it was 20 degrees below zero. It was miserably cold, so we got these two snuggled up together as much as possible and photographed their bridal portraits in 10 minute shifts. You almost can't even tell we had people bringing tissues out to us!
Molly comes to visit us every three months to get her first years milestones documented, and we absolutely adore this little peanut! Her folks allow us to do seasonal themes for her photos and we looooove a good themed photo session! We took her 6 month photos in the fall and grabbed pumpkins from the garden.
Lindsey and Ryan's wedding took place on one of the most wickedly cold days of the fall. We were all miserably cold, but these two make it look like it's perfectly warm and snuggly. We chose to take photos in the prairie with the golden grass for some fall color (it was November, so all the trees looked dead already), and I am so happy we chose to do so. The grass photographed so wonderfully rich and gold and allowed us for some light and airy photos.
I am an absolute dog person. When Melissa asked about getting photos taken with Mack for her Christmas card, I said, "Hell yeah!" Seriously, who could resist this handsome pup? He's the most perfectly doggiest dog I've ever met. I love a good dog mom and pup session and I think I might offer these every Christmas!
Rachel and Travis' engagement session was so much fun! These two can make each other laugh like nobody's business. We love photographing couples that adore each other and put each other at ease so they can be their goofy selves. We planned this session around the fall colors and it was totally worth the wait. There were so many yellows and oranges, the perfect Minnesota autumn engagement session.
We had the BEST weather for a wedding in Minnesota in the fall. It was absolutely perfect! We also love willow trees for photos sooo much and were thrilled to go down onto the golf course and find one.
Megan and Travis' wedding was so full of laughter and fun. Their gang of friends celebrated the happy couple like they were the best folks on earth. The Minnesota fall had us pretty chilly, but the sun shone all through the ceremony. We love photographing weddings in which the couples are so in love, that it's not even a choice anymore. They're just meant to be.
These two adorable folks let us lead them around tourist spots in Taylors Falls, and ended up in the water at the end of the session. (They both almost went all the way under during a little slippery pose adjustment, too haha!) We climbed bluffs, swatted mosquitoes, leaned inside juniper bushes... And at the end, we all sat down at a bright yellow picnic table at a fifties drive in themed restaurant and had a burger (also, the place had some reallllly good raspberry lemonade if anyone wants a recommendation). Thanks J&J, for being good sports about the heat and the bugs during your engagement photo session, and for giving us so many laughs.
