K+L: A ST. PAUL HISTORIC BUILDING WEDDING

After months of planning, Kayla and Lucas had their St. Paul historic building wedding, and it was a fairytale.  It was all things worthy of Hans Christian Anderson…and then some.  The love story of Kayla and Lucas didn’t began in a time long, long ago or once upon a time. It started with a girl […]

Vendor Spotlight

LANDMARK CENTER | VENDOR SPOTLIGHT

The Landmark Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. It truly is a landmark, and an incredible venue for an elegant wedding. You know me: I love historic buildings (I wrote a podcast all about it a few summer’s back).  Love love love. Anytime I can shoot in a place that is over 100 years old makes […]

A + T : A FALL WEDDING IN STILLWATER I WEDDING

It was a chilly, chilly morning, a mere 45 degrees as Alisa was corseted up by her would-be mother-in-law in the cottage at Trellis Wedding Events in Stillwater, Minnesota. She rubbed away the already-forming goosebumps from her arm, gesturing lightly to the hooded shawl (the perfect match to her lace mermaid gown) that would protect […]

A + T: A NORTH AND SOUTH(WEST) TWIN CITIES WINTER SESSION

It’s the #boldnorth, they say. Bolder than the north, however, is a couple of Southwesterners who braved everything that a Minnesota winter has to offer. Without coats. And boots. Plus no mittens or gloves. (All of this while I, a life-long Minnesotan recoiling to the inside my North Face for dear life). As a native […]

#JOYOUSLYJENSEN: A RUSH CITY, MN EVENTY I WEDDING

PSA: If someone is starting your daughter’s/sister’s/friend’s snowmobile, do not worry–it is probably just their soulmate. Nearly ten years ago, Ali and Brad began their journey towards forever; just like the ignition on that Arctic Cat, something sparked, and it took off into the snow and the woods in search of fun and adventure. From […]

K + M: A MINNEAPOLIS GOLF COURSE WEDDING

Jamie was simply sitting in class one day when she received a text from her sister, Katie. According to Jamie, it is not uncommon for Katie to urgently need to talk, but this text, which read boldly “EMERGENCY 911,” forced Jamie to book it with her textbooks out of her class to see what was […]

K +M: A NORTH LOOP MINNEAPOLIS ENGAGEMENT

  When we meet the ones who get us, it is amazing how we just know it is meant to be.   That is how I felt when I met Katie. Katie, she gets me. As a fellow teacher of ninth grade English, she would know and understand my “Romeo and Juliet” jokes. She loves […]

K +A: A MINNEHAHA FALLS ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Kaitlynn and Adam met me one early October evening, which turned out to be a beautiful mix of summer and fall—comfortably warm temperatures mixed with a pop of fall color. It was indeed a gorgeous night for an engagement session. Bentley the Puppy couldn’t have agreed more, even though there were times when he wondered […]

BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT KAYLA

At home on the road. Forever-focused on authenticity and the thrilling art of creation; always found in the moments that leave me breathless and in awe. 

After fourteen years as a high school educator, I stepped back through a door I thought was closed. Journalism came back into my life. Armed with a Masters of Arts in Communication, I was again challenged and prepared to tell the stories that would become history, but with a twist: It is now your legacy of love that I document. The tension I seek is that from every tear, smile, laugh, and moment of love on your wedding day.
