  • Andy & Carolyn | Minneopa Engagement Session

  • One of my favorite problems to have as a photographer is too many pictures from a session and lemme tell ya, I had a huge problem with this engagement session! I don't think these two are capable of a bad picture. Andy & Carolyn's engagement session at Minneopa State Park was ah-mazing. They had[...]

  • Molly & Nate's September wedding in Mankato was exactly the kind that reminded me why I love wedding photography.

  • Sarah & Keith | Milwaukee Wisconsin Wedding

  • I was lucky enough to cross paths with this beautiful bride here for a few short months in college when we played basketball together for a semester (side note...I shot a basketball for the first time in years recently...I took a shot to see if I still got it and I heard nothing but....well nothing,[...]
  • Kristina & Bennett | Brainerd, MN Wedding

  • If you wanted to show off all the wonderful things about Minnesota...a good place to start would be a weekend up north......and that is exactly where Kristina & Bennett's wedding weekend began. They spent 4th of July weekend with their family and friends at "Camp Dunberg" (their last names combi[...]
  • California Dreaming of You

  • Located in the hills of Southern California there is a hidden gem, The Bradford Ranch. It is serene and completely secluded... surrounded by meadows, rolling hills and granite boulders. It was a perfect fit for this sun drenched photo shoot. When I moved to California a year and half ago, this was t[...]
  • Engagement Photo Checklist

  • Engagement photos are hands down my favorite thing to photograph, I love them for so many reasons! I love them because there is no pressure or time rush, couples are able to really get comfortable and show who they are. This is also my time to get to know the couple and it is much easier to photogra[...]
  • Dan & Tatia | Fairmont Wedding

  • Dan & Tatia were married on a hot June day at Tatia's family church in southern Minnesota. The church sits right next to East Chain lake and we were able to wander down to the lake for their pictures and it made for a terrific backdrop!  Dan & Tatia are SO fun to photograph and a blast to be[...]

  • Everyone, meet my dearest older sister, Stephanie, and my future brother-in-law, Nick! They're getting hitched this Fall in sunny San Diego! How lucky am I that for once I don't have to travel back to the Midwest for a wedding but the wedding is coming to me?! Heck yes! It's going to be a weekend to[...]
  • Mel & Grant | Lake Crystal Engagement

  • I don't have much to say about Melissa & Grant's engagement photos, simply because these photos speak for themselves. It's pretty obvious how much they love each other and how comfortable they are together; you can't have photos this beautiful if that wasn't the case! I just have to take an exce[...]
  • Lake Jefferson Engagement

  • Confession: Sometimes, when people I know get engaged, I secretly say to myself (and let's be honest, to my mom) "please please please let me be their wedding photographer, pllllllllllllease!!" Jack and Kendra are no exception to that and I was giddy as could be when they asked me to be their photog[...]

  • When I think about Catharine and Andrew a little smile just creeps up on my face. These two are just beaming with joy and love and it's absolutely contagious! How I am so lucky to find such nice clients is beyond me! Andrew & Catharine were married at their Alma mater (and mine!), Bethany Luther[...]
