  • Andrea & Travis | Mankato Engagement Session

  • One of my favorite parts about my job is learning about my clients. During the process of booking a wedding I get to learn all about this new couple. I hear about their jobs, where they live, what they like to do for fun and the best of all, I hear how they met and fell in love. Andrea and Travis me[...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • HowHeAsked.Com Feature

  • It's always exciting to see my couples recognized out there on the world wide web! Thanks a bunch to the folks at HowHeAsked.com for featuring Nick and Amy's GORGEOUS Joshua Tree surprise proposal on their site! I'm still tickled to have been able to photograph this amazing life event for them! It w[...]
  • Rancho Penasquitos Adventure Session

  • This couple here has stolen my heart. I dream of photographing couples like this. Couple's who aren't afraid to hike six miles to their location because it will be SO WORTH IT. ( We hiked 3 miles in and 3 miles out to get to this beyond gorgeous location).  A couple that shares my love of adventure [...]
  • San Diego Love Session

  • Have you been to San Diego before? If not, go look at flights right now! No really...right. now. Okay I might be biased, but in my humble opinion, San Diego is one of the greatest places you could live. The other day I was at a networking group and we were going around the circle saying our name, wh[...]
  • Joshua Tree Surprise Proposal

  • Nick has been planning his proposal to his college girlfriend, Amy for quite some time. It had to be perfect and in order for that to happen, he wanted it to be a surprise. He wanted to propose at Joshua Tree National Park (never heard of it? Just know, it's gorgeous) but thought if he planned a[...]
  • You Make Me Hoppy

  • Dan and Tatia are the bomb (are people still saying that?) We took their engagement pictures at Indeed Brewing Company in North Minneapolis as they sipped on stout. That's right, at Joey Photo you get to drink beer while having your pictures taken and look good while doing it! No one said engagment [...]
