  • Molly & Nate | Mankato Minnesota Wedding

  • Molly & Nate's September wedding in Mankato was exactly the kind that reminded me why I love wedding photography. Molly & Nate are the kind of couple that I LOVE to photograph and be around, they were thisismyweddingdayicantstopsmiling happy and you could just FEEL IT in the air! It doesn't [...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • The Knot.com Feature

  • Last July I had the incredible pleasure of photographing Ryan & Katelyn's wedding in West Saint Paul, MN. It was the kind of wedding that at the end, even though I'd been standing on my feet for some 10+ hours, I wasn't ready to go home. Not a minute of the day felt like work! Now it wasn't a "P[...]
  • Annie & Paul | La Crosse Wedding

  • Annie & Paul were married near La Crosse Wisconsin and on a warm summer day in June. They spent the morning in cute little cabins by the lake goofing around with their bridal party and getting ready for the day. Annie wore a dress fit for a princess and Paul looked so handsome in his navy blue! [...]
  • Edgewood Farm Wedding

  • Brooke & Ryan were married on a rainy Saturday in May at Edgewood Farm in Henderson, Minnesota. It rained most of the morning and into the afternoon but shortly before the ceremony started, the rain let up and we enjoyed the rest of the day with looming clouds that threatened to rain but refused[...]
  • For This Child I Have Prayed

  • Ben and Emmalee have had a big year. In the past 365 days they have said "I do", honeymooned,  finished law school (YAY!) and welcomed their daughter into the world. That may sound a bit overwhelming to you, but I assure you this couple handled it with nothing but grace and love. The beautiful woman[...]
  • Weekend in Zion

  • Alex and I have this cute little "napkin list"of things we want to do this year. What in the world is a napkin list you may ask? Well, it's a bucket list...that we wrote on a napkin one night at dinner.... therefore, our napkin list. Anyways, on said napkin list  we put a big fat CHECK next to Zion [...]
