PHOTOGRAPHERS: Want to learn my tips to creating beautiful flatlays?



All four of my September weddings this year were out of town, and this one brought me all the way to Osakis! Matt and Charnell are the sweetest, most awesome people ever, and I guess I’d drive anywhere for these two!

This cute little red barn is right next to their house, and there was also a beautiful field with lots of yellow flowers (yellow is Charnell’s favorite color!), and the trees were beginning to turn… I mean, it was seriously a perfect day to get married!

I definitely LOVE veils, especially long ones, so I’m so glad Charnell wore a gorgeous veil!!! The sun was definitely shining right on them, and this was around 1pm, but the clouds helped diffuse a little bit of the harsh sun, and the pictures turned out beautiful!!! I loved this field!

Obsessed with this bridal party! Matt and Charnell’s wedding party was sweet and oh so kind, and treated me like a friend the entire time! My face hurt from laughing so much all day!

This little peanut in the middle is their daughter, and she made THE cutest flower girl ever! She is so loved and adored by her parents, grandparents, heck, everyone! She looked like a little princess in her flower girl dress!

Charnell had these mugs made for all her bridesmaids!!! I’m so obsessed I want one! The bride’s say “Team Charnell,” and each bridesmaid got one with a bride and a bridesmaid holding champagne! The cutest gift! I’ll make it easy on you, you can get these custom made on Amazon :-). You’re welcome!

I feel so honored I got to photograph this wedding. Matt, Charnell and Charlotte are so special, and deserve all the best in the world! I still remember the day we met in person for their engagement session. We immediately connected (and had donuts at Glamdoll, of course), and it was just so easy to spend time with them!

Cheers to Matt and Charnell! Thank you for trusting me to be your wedding photographer!
