From Ms. to Mrs.! Congratulations to the lovely Emily Howald Sefton, editor of Mpls St Paul Weddings Magazine! I had the privledge of photographing her first dress fitting at l’atelier couture, and an image from the fitting was published in Emily’s Editor’s Note in the Fall/Winter issue of the magazine. Can I just take a second to tell you how much I love the ladies of l’atelier? I saw firsthand at the fitting how much attention, care, and love they devote to each and every single bride. The girls helped Emily into her gorgeous Vera Wang gown and treated her like royalty. I could tell it was a moving experience, not only for Emily, but for her mother and the rest of her family that joined her. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it, Emily! And, thank you to Mpls St Paul Magazine!


Emily & Matthew are one of the funnest, spunkiest, most vibrant couples I’ve ever met. They reside in San Fran and planned their wedding from afar, so I didn’t get to meet Emily right away (or Matthew until the day of the wedding!), but I from our very first conversation on the phone, I was really excited about their big day and loved how much they love each other. Emily and Matthew, along with their amazing coordinator, Kirsten of Fab Event Design, planned a bright, fun, bold, graphic celebration and it was just E&M 110%. There were so many unique details (can we talk about the ribbon strung place cards that Kirsten and her crew slaved over for hours?!) and sweet moments throughout this day.  I was in love with their adorable first look, and I was in tears during the first dance.

Be sure to check out their feature in The Knot Magazine!


A nautical, summer wedding on the Long Island Sound? Sign me up!! Ana & Chris planned the most adorable wedding, filled to the max with gorgeous details and prettiness! Chris is the cousin of a past bride and I was thrilled to shoot another Gramlich wedding! Although the couple resides in Connecticut, and were married in New York, Ana has Minnesota ties, having grown up there. (So many of my clients have ties in both in states!) Thank you for inviting me to capture your stunning wedding day. A big thanks to my friend Amy, my east coast partner-in-crime, for shooting this wedding with me!
