{Mr and Mrs Maule | Pillager MN Wedding Photographer}

Heather and I met in middle school softball… and have stayed buddies since, so this wedding was extra special for me. I love this couple, they have so much fun together and so did everyone else at their wedding.

Anthony and Heather tied the knot at her grandparents place on the river, which was perfect for them because one of their shared loves is fishing (you might remember their ice fishing engagement session!). They had rain on their wedding day, but that did nothing to damper the mood… and right after they said I do the sun came out!

Also, Heather had the cutest surprise for her dad… part way through the father/daughter dance the song switch to “Put me in Coach”, and she pulled out their gloves for a game of catch instead.

Zetah… I mean Mrs. M ;) I’m really glad you talked to me all those years ago when I was the new-to-a-small-town-girl. I’m also really glad you let me be a special part of you and Anthony’s celebration!

{Mr and Mrs Sterriker | St Paul MN Wedding Photographer}

Brandon and Paige became Mr and Mrs Sterriker last July with a wedding at the Como Conservatory. Talk about a picture perfect place to get married! They were surrounded by their closest friends and family, and started the celebration out with dinner, and finished the night with their ceremony in the sunken garden. So perfect.

Paige and Brandon, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day… and for being that couple that says “YES!” any time I wanted to pull you away for “one more picture!”

{Tateum – Class of 2017 | Brainerd Mn High School Senior Photographer}

I had a lot of fun with this session! Not only is Tateum a gorgeous senior, but she brought her puppy! And she was homeschooled (homeschooled alumni right here!) so we had fun with a few homeschool jokes ;) Thanks for such a fun session, and letting me capture this stage of your life!

Blogging these pictures is making me excited for the upcoming senior season… if you’re graduating in 2018, I’d love to chat!

Good friends, the west coast and incredible sunsets are some of my favorite things. Add them all together??!?! Yep, a little bit of heaven!

Tyler and Ange have been married two years, and Si and Rachel a little under a year…. but you don’t need an anniversary to have an excuse to document your love! Thanks for letting me do that for you guys!

Love you all!

Oh cow… get ready for a loooonnng post. This couple, and this wedding, was so much fun. Mariya and Jared are the kind of couple that cares about everyone around them, and we could definitely see this on their wedding day. Oh and Mariya’s dress… SO. GORGEOUS.

After blogging these images, I’m getting super excited to shoot these two’s family session in a couple of weeks! Thanks again, SO much for allowing me to be a part of your wonderful day!

No more words are needed… just scroll down some!

{Mandolin | Brainerd MN Portrait Photographer}

Mandolin needed some new headshots for her job… and so we did a quick session one evening, and grabbed a couple of extra just for fun. The mosquitos were horrendous but both the subject and the light was gorgeous, so it was worth it!

Thanks for letting me snap a few shots of you, Mandolin!
