Meet Annie & John! I am so excited for this adorable couple to tie the knot in just a few short weeks! I hadn’t met John before the engagement session, but it’s pretty easy to see why Annie loves him – he was all smiles and full of jokes and laughter during our session, and it’s so obvious how much they both adore each other. We hung out at Annie’s childhood home on Lake Minnetonka, where I got to meet the entire family, who were all there prepping for a big 4th of July weekend. Shoutout to her brothers for backflipping into the water (not pictured!) and keeping us laughing/giving us a hard time during the session!

Congrats to the future Mr & Mrs!!

Diem & Erik were married in a personal and intimate ceremony at Erik’s dad’s beautiful home in Excelsior on Lake Minnetonka. Their day centered around a ceremony that was personal and heartfelt, and began with each of their guests painting a leaf on a piece of art. After the ceremony, and photos by the lake, it was off to The River Room at Aster Cafe for dinner, drinks, and a continued celebration. In lieu of a first dance, the couple played music together and their guests demanded an encore!

To the newlywedded couple, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day. I’m so happy for you as you continue your life journey together!

blog_title_decorationLAURA & MACY | ONE YEAR SESSION

Some of my past brides and grooms may recognize this beautiful mama! Laura has been my right hand woman, assisting on wedding days, for the past several years. I can’t even begin to sum up how lucky I feel to have Laura in my life. Beyond for just the obvious things she does at weddings for me and our couples, she is an intelligent, strong, mature, and insightful woman. We could talk for hours about the most random of topics, and though I’m {a few years!} her senior, I always feel like Laura so wise and I learn so much from her. I remember Laura first telling me she was pregnant. I knew right away she’d be an amazing mom, and I was so happy for her. Now her darling little baby is already a year old, and as sweet as ever. Macy really takes after her mama. She’s a happy baby, with a constant smile on her face. She’s easy-going and free spirited and loves music, also just like her mama. I was so honored to capture these special images of Laura and Macy. Because moms (especially photographer moms!) are just not in enough photos.

Love you guys!!
