As I write these words, I am a mere 62 days away from a job that I will have held for 14 years. On June 4, I will walk out of my classroom for summer, and will not return in the fall. For the first time since kindergarten, I will not have a first day […]

Author Andrea Davis Pinkey once said that “[o]ne of the many challenges of wearing many hats is that I love each and every one of them!” If that ain’t the truth, I don’t know what it. I have taken on many roles in my life; some have been temporary, others are forever markers of who […]

Duluth never, ever fails to deliver. When Sarah and I were talking about her Duluth winter engagement session, she wanted two things: Evergreens and snow.

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 […]
