floral_elementCARLY, TIM & MOLLY | TAYLORS FALLS

Carly & Tim are getting married!  Carly is a fellow photographer (check out her lovely work on her website!) and when she reached out to me, I was so flattered and humbled that she wanted me to document her and Tim’s engagement and wedding! Carly has such a great eye for fashion and styling (and really anything creative!!) and I knew their engagement session would be perfection! When she told me they chose Taylors Falls as the location, I was even more excited.

Carly and Tim are truly the sweetest couple.  Gorgeous inside and out.  They are so affectionate towards each other and give the best hugs!  They aren’t afraid to get a little silly! Not to mention that they have the cutest little boxer pup, Molly!  I have a soft spot in my heart for black and white dogs, and if Molly’s good looks don’t win you over, her disposition certainly will!  I had so much fun spending the evening with these three exploring the bluffs and chatting about the wedding, home decor, DIY projects, and more.

Counting the days till the big day!

floral_elementKENDRA, MATT & EVIE | FAMILY SESSION ON FILM

Meet Kendra & Matt, two incredibly talented photographers, and their beautiful daughter, Evie. I originally met Kendra digitally through social media circles, but we officially met in person on a random flight from Boston to Minneapolis.  Kendra and Matt were living there at the time, but traveling back and forth for weddings, and I was in Boston visiting a friend.  Our flight was delayed and I remember being particularly irritated.  I had my headphones on and was leaning up against a wall (likely scowling), when an adorable blond came up and introduced herself.  I begrudgingly pulled my earbuds out before I realized who it was (sorry Kendra!). Luckily she forgave me and we hit it off right away! We also happened to be seated in the same row, and one of our fellow passengers traded seats so I could sit right next to Kendra and and Matt and chat the whole way to Minneapolis.

Fast forward a couple years and now Kendra & Matt’s family has grown!  They have a tradition of having family photos taken on their wedding anniversary and this is their first anniversary with Evie.  I must be honest, although I love babies (especially smiley, adorable, giggly babies like Miss Evelyn), I don’t typically photograph them. I love weddings and they’re definitely my passion and the foundation of my business. But, I trusted that they trusted my abilities and vision, and I couldn’t resist Evie’s sweet little cheeks.  Seriously, could this baby possibly be any cuter?! Plus, I knew that Evie can’t walk (or run; away from me) so I decided to step out of my comfort zone and give a family shoot a try. I shot this entire session on film, and just had fun with this amazing family.  Thanks Kendra & Matt for trusting me to document your beautiful love!
