I was in Phoenix when I had my wedding consult with these two. We clicked right away, and soon after they booked me to photograph their wedding! We lucked out with the most perfect, Fall day, for the engagement session! The leaves were at their peek color, and it wasn’t too cold either. I cannot […]

I’m not gonna lie, I’m totally missing these warmer weather sessions. Josh and Kayla absolutely nailed their session, and followed my style guide to pick the most perfect outfits! They look like movie stars, and I can’t wait for their wedding at 7 Vines Vineyard!!! Stay tuned for a second post from their session!

These two were such a joy to work with! Sam and Sarah followed my Style Guide super well, but I wasn’t even surprised, since Sarah works at Nordstrom. Could these two be any cuter together? And is anyone else seeing a certain resemblance to Prince Harry and Meghan???

These two are quickly becoming some of my favorite people ALIVE! Our wedding meeting took place at one of my favorite restaurants, Chimborazo, so we could all enjoy Tres Leches Cake together. Needless to say, we clicked right away, and they booked me for their August wedding. They are PPPEEERRRRFFFEEECCCTTT for each other. Bren wakes […]

These are some of my favorite engagement session photos EVER, and Justin and Katie are like my favorite people! If they lived in MN they’d get sick of me because I would want to see them ALL THE TIME! I’m already planning yearly trips to LA so I can get my fix of their awesomeness… […]

We were supposed to have our wedding meeting at my studio, but they texted me and changed the location to a bar in Chaska, so I arrived, and the entire time we talked, it just felt like I was hanging out with friends. I always say I pick my clients just as much as they […]

Karmen found me through Instagram, and I’m so glad she did! She and Drew are the sweetest, and it was such a pleasure to do this session with them, and welcome them to Minnesota, since they just recently moved here. I think they both should quit their jobs and become full time models, because oh […]

These two love birds met when Callie was a sophomore, and Adam was a senior. He started his career in the Army after graduating and had to move, so a lot of their relationship has been long distance. He came back from deployment just in time for their engagement session! A&C are pretty much polar […]

You think that umbrella was just a prop? Nope, it was raining during our ENTIRE session! The weather here is so unpredictable, I keep an umbrella in my car at all times! We probably could have rescheduled, BUT, this gorgeous bride-to-be had already gotten her hair and makeup done, and her nails too, so I […]
