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!

Kelly + Blake

I met both Kelly and Blake at a wedding last fall. These two are so charming and down to earth, I was so happy to have been asked to photograph their wedding day in September. Because of this long winter, our session was on a cold, rainy Sunday. Crazy to think just five days later I was wearing shorts and sandals. Oh well. We managed and spent most of the time inside the Guthrie in downtown Minneapolis. What a surprisingly unique location for photographs. Congratulations you two.
