jenny & gerick engagement in the woods

jenny and gerick are new friends of mine. I met jenny working as a forever bride member at a networking event last year. I immediately knew our personalities clicked. this summer, before even meeting her other half, gerick proposed. I blame it on busy schedules and the fact that jenny and I normally just wanted an excuse to eat good food and talk girly things, without our mates. from the moment I met gerick, I liked him. after meeting a few months ago to take some shots on my 35mm we agreed to do it again - but this time, while camping. couple camping. mid october we drove out to camp on lake maria. we wandered the trails til dusk and captured some real love. drank a bit of champagne and hard cider and got silly. enjoy this mix of digital and film.


kellie & justin wedding

looking back on how many e-mails and texts kellie and I have shared, it is no wonder I had trouble holding tears back during their ceremony. this marked my first wedding back in the game after having a baby. I think I really lucked out. after hours of conversation shared over every food item on the menu (thanks to justin), family photos, engagement photos and a secret boudoir session from him to her - it is safe to say my relationship with the eastmans is one I will cherish for life. congratulations to both you beautiful souls.

brittany & donny engagement

These couple of cuties and I spent the first part of their session exploring the vacant state fair grounds. I had no knowledge it is open to the public on weekends but am so happy it is. Looking forward to your fall St. Paul wedding you two! But for now... happy spring!
