Liz and Jacob's Wedding Photography

I flew out to Baltimore a couple of weeks ago to capture a wedding in Virginia. It was a lovely 70 degrees the weekend I was there and I soaked up the sun. I loved visiting the east coast...secretly I just wanted to blast the Hamilton sound track every car ride :) We even drove past a couple of historic landmarks...I have to go back with my kids!!!

The wedding was stunning. Outdoor weddings are risky, but when they work, they are magical! This one had sun and clouds until the reception started and then in poured while we were cozy inside eating and dancing. The couple was a dream to work with and there was tons of kids in the wedding party so that is always a bonus for me.

Thank you Liz and Jacob for hosting me and asking me to capture this amazing day of memories.

Here are a few of my favorites from the wedding day...enjoy!

The Wilson Family Portraits, Edina, MN

I've been blogging for years. (Over 10 years...if you can believe that?) I started blogging to teach and answer questions about photography, but then life happened. I changed the focus of my blog and it became a place for me to share, vent, cry and write what I was feeling. It was real and it was my therapy. I loved writing and I loved connecting with women online. Jen Wilson was one of those women. For years we've been trying to figure out this photo shoot and it finally happened. It was so lovely to meet her family and capture their family portraits. It was my pleasure. And even though life has changed again and I don't write like a used to...I'm thankful for that season. This season is very different. Now I write papers for the University of Minnesota. So, not as much blogging, but...I love that I still get to connect with clients in person! :)

 

Senior Portrait Photography

Changing seasons. New adventures. Impact moments. All these can be found in senior portraits and I love capturing them! The little downtown area of Chaska, MN has a special place in my heart for photo shoots...it's has tons of little nooks and alleys for great portraits. Enjoy!

 

Evie and Rodea's Wedding Photography

Wedding Photography is very near and dear to my heart. Nothing makes me smile like a wedding with friends who are like family to me. And when I get to keep coming back wedding after wedding, it's more like a family reunion. The best part is when I put my cameras down and start to dance! Ya, I do that sometimes. :) Wedding Photography is about telling a story and each one is so different...that's why I love this job! Enjoy this incredible family...

Rachel and Akis - Wedding Photography, Rochester, MN

Getting to capture someone's wedding is a pretty great honor. But...when I'm asked to come back and photograph the same family's second daughter, I can't help but smile. At the end of the night the mom gave me the most amazing compliment. she said, " You came in as our photographer and you're leaving as part of the family." Isn't that beautiful? Kinda amazing when you realize that people let you into their families when they have you as their photographer. I don't take it for granted. This beautiful family...there were so many beautiful moments and it was really hard to narrow the photos down to a few of my favorites to show you as a sneak preview. But, I hope you enjoy these! Two wonderful families coming together as one!

I never tire of meeting new families and couples about to begin the most amazing adventure...marriage is beautiful when cherished! I wish the best for Rachel and Akis!

Gruber Family portraits

It's no secret that I love capturing weddings, but, oh boy getting to see families (that I love) year after year and being a small part of their story is really high up there too. This family...I could talk to them for hours. They know me and I know them. We don't hang out, but we definitely could. I love being around them that much! It started with family portraits. They let me into their home and their hearts years ago when their sweet twins come home from the hospital. And from there I have watched them grow as a family. It's weird, but I feel proud of them. We all know that life isn't always easy, but I'm thankful they kept fighting for each other and their family. Family Portraits capture this season and this moment. That's what makes them beautiful.

Thank you Gruber Family for letting me be a part of your story :)

Johnson Family Portraits - 3 Generations together

Normally at this time of year I'm busy shooting wedding photography, but I had the incredible privilege of capturing this amazing family (3 generations together) and it made me smile. No one really "likes" to have their picture taken. It's uncomfortable and awkward, but my goal is always to lessen the chore of it and make it fun because everyone loves having the images when it done! So, I lead this sweet family through the Guthrie, Mill City and over to Izzy's for ice cream...the photoshoot became an enjoyable night spent with family :) (and me.) Thank you for choosing me to be your family photography. I can't wait for the next time we get together for family portraits! ICE CREAM AGAIN??????

Phoenix, Arizona. (Papago Park)

I love to travel. Sometimes I have the privilege of traveling for photography...that brings my two loves together and I'm one happy girl. A couple of weeks ago a photographer friend (ErinJohnsonPhotography) and I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona for an action packed weekend. We scheduled 3 photo sessions and many other epic adventures. Having the opportunity to capture a new landscape and feel the sun on my face at the same time, was pretty awesome. On my birthday weekend no less.

One of my favorite locations was Papago Park. (seen below) I'm already planning my next trip back to Arizona. :)

Here's some of my favorites from the trip:

Senior Portraits, Minneapolis, MN

It's cold in Minnesota this time of year. But, we're Minnesotan and that doesn't scare us. An hour and a half in the cold...done! We had a blast shooting these Senior Portraits at the Mill City Museum and gutherie The trick is to plan plenty of time to warm up in between outdoor portraits!ENJOY!

Megan and Joe Wedding Photography (Minneapolis, MN)

I love weddings. Even after months of capturing weddings every weekend...I still love weddings. I truly love being a wedding photographer. It's my privilege to be with these couples on their big day. Megan and Joe were such an easy couple to capture. The fall wedding weather was perfect! I caught myself several times that day taking deep breaths and marveling at the beauty all around us. I loved shooting at Loring Pasta bar and Varsity Theatre.

Christie and Adam's Engagement Photos - Centennial Lakes, Edina

I have been a wedding photographer for ages...going on 15 years now. I love it as much now...no, I think I love it more. I love that I've gotten to know so many amazing people and they refer me to more amazing people and so on. I captured Christie's sister wedding and now I get to have a little reunion with the whole family and be there for Christie's big day! I can't even tell you how honored I am to be chosen twice! They are an adorable couple...the kind I'd like to hang out with. :) So we did. This is us hanging out for their engagement photos. We had so much fun together. ENJOY!

Gaurmaccia Family Portraits - Minneapolis, MN (Centennial Lakes)

This summer has been so beautiful. I love taking family portraits during the week and shooting weddings on weekend. Centennial Lakes is a great location for family photography because it offers tons of different background within a short walking distance! I'm loving shooting there at the moment. I met the Gaurmaccia family early one morning and we had a great time capturing their sweet stage of life.

Enjoy!

Suzelle and Jonathan - Wedding Photography

Remember the rain we had last weekend? Can you imagine waking up on the day of your wedding and seeing it pour outside knowing you've planned an outdoor reception? That's what happened to Suzelle and Jonathan. I had met them at our their engagement shoot and immediately fell in love with them, their story, their sweet sentiment...they are such romantics! I was so looking forward to seeing them again at their wedding. I wanted everything to perfect. I didn't want the rain to ruin anything. One of the benefits of being a wedding photographer for 14 years is that I've shot in every kind of weather and I know I can get beautiful pictures no matter what. Sometimes the bride and groom need a little convincing when the weather is at it's worst. But, Minnesota weather is unpredictable and by the evening the sun was out and the party was raging! It was perfect and I'm so thankful I had a part in their beautiful day.

Enjoy this sneak peak of their wedding photos.
