Ah, the yearly year in review. I’m a little late. Despite this being wedding photography off-season in Minnesota, I’ve stayed quite busy working on albums for all my 2015 couples, and booking newly engaged couples that are getting married in 2016 and even 2017. But I’m still high on the cloud of love that is Valentine’s Day, so it’s fun to relive all the laughter and hugs and kisses from last year while compiling images for this post. Finding images is easy, but I struggle with the perfect words. 2015 was a spectacular year filled with amazing couples with big hearts and lots of love. Love for each other and for their friends and family. Being a wedding photographer has got to be one of the coolest jobs on the planet. You guys, I just love witnessing all this love week after week! Such a huge blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
I’m always so excited for my clients when their gorgeous weddings are selected to be published in magazines or on blogs! I’ve been lucky to shoot some seriously jaw-droppingly beautiful weddings!!
Lauren & Dillon’s wedding was published in Mpls St Paul Weddings Magazine. They hosted a colorful, fun soiree at Aria, coordinated by Sarah Trotter at Lasting Impressions. Lauren looked impeccable a gorgeous gown from Christos with hair and makeup by Emily J. Her florals were designed by Martha’s Gardens.
Lauren & Dillon were also featured on Brides! You can see their feature here!
Michelle & Conner’s fall wedding at Mill City Museum was published in The Knot Minnesota. Expertly coordinated by Mimi Weddings, their entire day was flawless. Michelle was seriously stunning in her Vera Wang gown from L’atelier Couture and the florals by Jackie at Just Bloomed were so unique and lovely. Michelle & Conner were married in the outdoor courtyard of the museum, right as the sun was setting- it was so pretty! Congrats to the newlyweds!
Lastly, a styled shoot I photographed for Faith of This Love Weddings was featured in Minnesota Bride! You can see the complete shoot and vendor credits here.
I was also interviewed for an article about finding the perfect photographer, alongside a couple other industry friends! My biggest tip (for all your vendors, actually): find someone you adore and trust so you can relax and enjoy one of the best days of your life!
I can’t believe it’s Christmas week! Where did 2015 go?! I love every season in the beautiful state of Minnesota and it’s currently snowing outside my office window, but let’s take it back to fall for a few minutes here. Celia & Bobby’s gorgeous October wedding was elegant and colorful, but not over-the-top fall. They had the perfect day in so many ways- it was full of all of the most gorgeous details you could imagine, and everything (including the adorable bride and groom!) was picture perfect, but more than that- their day was full of incredible moments and lots of laughter. Celia and Bobby were surrounded by their many friends, families and constant smiles. Their joy was contagious and I am so thankful that they chose me to capture their wedding day. Thank you!! You guys are the best and I hope you keep smiling through every day of your married life!
