I was introduced to Carol & Ryan through previous clients.  After corresponding via email, we met in person at a coffee shop in NYC, and from the first meeting I knew these two stylish designers would plan the perfect wedding!  Their entire celebration at the Old Field Club in East Setauket, New York, was a labor of love and the couple did all of the planning, invitations, design elements, decor, hand-painted signs, website, and so much more, themselves.  Their wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty, and the writeup from the bride says it all much better than I ever could!  I know there’s often lots of emphasis on the “stuff” and the pretty little details, and that’s certainly fun to show in photographs, but Carol & Ryan’s wedding day went way beyond all that.  Their day was as touching as it was beautiful.  See the feature here, and check out some of my personal favorites below. Enjoy!

I’ve been busy as a bee, not only prepping for Wedding Season 2014, but shooting boudoir sessions in my gorgeous studio in Northeast Minneapolis.  Just wanted to share one image that recently caught my eye.  Happy Monday!

I’m a bit behind, but I just had to share Emily & Matthew’s wedding, which was published in the Fall/Winter 2013 issue of The Knot Minnesota Magazine! I loved this bold, modern, and graphic wedding coordinated by Kirsten at Fab Event Design and hosted at Aria in Minneapolis. I love being featured in the Knot and am so thankful that they chose to showcase this fun couple! Congrats Emily & Matthew!!

It’s no secret that I love dogs! I love spoiling my little pup and it’s likely no coincidence that many of my clients have special furry family members too! I always smile when I’m planning a session with someone and they ask permission to bring along their dog… OBVIOUSLY, YES!! I’ve had countless cute pups in the studio and along for photo sessions. Clients (without dogs!) have jokingly ask if my contract requires my clients to have dogs.  No, really.  I’ve been asked.  I thought it’d be fun to compile photos of some of the cute pups I’ve been privileged to capture on film over the last year- these are only photos from my most recent archives, and I apologize in advance if I missed someone (it’s not easy task going through hundreds of shoots and weddings!)

PS- I’m trying to come up with a hashtag for all the pup pictures I share on Instagram- specifically of pups that come into my studio. Perhaps something with my name/studio/dogs all rolled into one? Suggestions appreciated!
