blog_title_decorationPUBLISHED | MORE SPRING/SUMMER 2015

I was so honored to be asked to photograph a feature editorial for midwest bridal magazine, Dainty Obsessions. The shoot featured gorgeous couture gowns from L’atelier Couture, Florals by Camrose Hill, Styling by Judith Marilyn, Hair by Julie Swenson, and Makeup by Jamie Holly Artistry. The shoot was a 12 page spread, and much to my delight and surprise, also featured on the COVER!!! It was so fun working with Dainty Obsessions and some of my favorite Minneapolis vendors to dream up this shoot.

My adorable clients, Molly & Steve were featured in The Knot Minnesota, where they shared their proposal story and an image from our engagement session, which you can see here.  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in June!!

I had the rare opportunity to be on the other side of the lens when the editor of Mpls St Paul Magazine asked to feature my home and photography studio in the live/work section of their home design issue! What an honor!  I love the photographs by my friend, Wing Ta of Canary Grey Photography. And, can we just talk about how my pup, Cali, became the star of the shoot?!  She’s featured in two photos (and for the record, I’m only in one!! :p) Thanks to MSP for the beautiful feature. My mom loved it even more than I did, and I had to buy approximately 50 copies for all her friends!

Emma & Alex’s outdoor wedding at Camrose Hill Flower Farm was featured. They were also published in Dainty Obsessions, and on the COVER of the Winter ’14 issue.  Jane & Peter’s up-north, lakeside wedding was also featured (and printed in MN Bride Magazine, and the nationally-circulated Flowers Magazine).  And Yenni & Jon’s summer soiree at the Lyndale Peace Gardens and Calhoun Beach Club. Congrats to my clients!!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m starting to feel like spring is just around the corner! It’s only the beginning of March, and already temps are warming. Call me crazy, but I love the season changes in Minnesota, and I get the feeling that I blinked and winter was over! Dare I say we were robbed of our notorious Minnesota winter?! So I’m bringing winter back with a little mini session with one of my favorite couples, the McCartneys! They’re fellow film photographers based in Wisconsin, and over the years they’ve become two amazing friends. We’ve photographed each other (too many times to count! but if you really want to count: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), enjoyed countless yummy dinners, had getaways in Door County, traveled to California, and danced the night away at barn dances. Best of all, we have the greatest conversations. They’re the kind of magnetizing people that you want to be around all the time. So much so that I’m trying to convince my husband to move to Wausau, WI so we can be neighbors!

We took turns photographing each other for our holiday cards. It was bitterly cold, and our fingertips were frozen, but we still had fun snapping away. ENJOY!
