• 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[...]
  • My Sister Is Engaged! | Mankato Engagement

  • 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[...]
  • Catharine & Andrew | Mankato MN Wedding

  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • Minnesota Engagement

  • When Kelsi and Tyler showed up to their engagement session at Flandrau State Park in New Ulm, MN in Kelsi's beloved camper, I knew we were in for a fun evening. Any girl who has an adventure mobile like that is pretty darn cool in my book! I need to start shopping for my own! But seriously, I want o[...]
  • 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[...]
