The wedding party as we know it is far from a new idea. Groomsmen and bridesmaids have been a staple of wedding celebration for quite some time. Even going all the way back to the times of the Torah/Old Testament there were wedding parties; Leah and Rachel had their own maids when they married Jacob […]

I get it. I love a good deal, too. But–and this is a rather large but–I also know that deal doesn’t mean cheap or inexpensive; it means you are getting value for the expense. I could get a haircut anywhere but I go to Pam because of the little things (mainly a hot towel, wonderful […]

At the end of your wedding day, you look around at your love, your friends and family, and feel so content and amazed at the beautiful day you have all shared. The next day you’ll see a pile of things you HAD to have and wonder, “What in the world are we supposed to do […]

Just because I work in the wedding industry does not mean I am all about RomComs. My movie choices are usually some kind of historical “based on a true story” situation. That or a dark comedy or dramedy.  However, I do like a good, fluffy feel-good flick once in a while, and there are five […]

In the beginning, I was asked all the time where I would like to photograph weddings. Like, if I had a dream venue, one that I could revisit time and time again, what would it be? I don’t remember my specific answer, but I know this: My reality now is way different than my expectation […]

As I have previously mentioned, elopements are no longer just for trips to Las Vegas. They have quickly become an amazing alternative to traditional weddings. They are perfect micro celebrations that have big memories. A version of elopements, one that I love, is adventure elopements. The simple definition of an adventure elopement is an elopement […]

I am the luckiest photographer in the world, because I am a Minnesota wedding and elopement photographer. I get to spend so much time in some of the coolest parts of our state. There are very few corners I haven’t explored, and I love it. My favorite part of it? THE FOOD. I might be […]

Is an elopement for you? This is a question that every couple needs to ask themselves as they begin their wedding planning process. No love story is exactly the same, and therefore no celebration will be, either. It is important to weigh all the options so you know exactly what you are looking for when […]

If you aren’t in the film circle, January 14, 2021, was probably just another Friday. Maybe it was date night. Perhaps it was payday. But it probably wasn’t anything too spectacular. For us who photograph with film, however, it was the day the music died. And by music I mean Fujifilm Pro 400h. This film […]
