Meet Des & Nolan! We were having really bad luck with scheduling their engagement session. It seemed that every date we chose ended up being a rainy, stormy day. I guess the third time is the charm, because we finally met for their engagement session on the HOTTEST day of year. Go figure! But Des & Nolan handled it like troopers. Even their doggie, Bear, got in on the photo action, although, I felt quite bad for him with his black fur. I was a bit worried the poor guy was going to pass out. When we finally couldn’t take the heat, we snuck into the Walker for refuge and freezing cold AC. Enjoy the preview!
I love this couple and I loved their session! We had so much fun out at my grandparent’s farm in rural Le Center, MN, and I loved the cool props that Kelsy & Butch brought along. They incorporated things they love doing together like drinking wine and Kelsy’s super fun vintage-replica bicycle. K&B are actually super awesome wedding photographers based out of Wisconsin, so we had to get some shots with their cameras too!
This lovely couple are past clients and I’m so happy they came back for more photo fun! Miranda contacted me wanting some fun couple photos, really for no particular reason- just their year and a half anniversary! Miranda had her hair and makeup done by Unveiled and was looking fabulous and Weston looked so dapper in his dress blues. Enjoy a mini-sneak peek of their session!
I am so, so, SOOOO excited to be published once again, this time in the fabulous Minnesota Bride Magazine! Brides to be, and anyone in the industry, if you aren’t reading this magazine, I’d recommend rushing out and buying a copy of this magazine as soon as possible! Minnesota Bride is one of my favorite magazines and a great resource for anyone planning their area in the great state of lakes! One of my goals for 2010 was to be published in this magazine and so I’m so thrilled to have THREE features in the Fall/Winter issue!
Isn’t the cover fab?
First up, Jill & Matt’s beautiful winter wedding was chosen to be featured! You can check out more of Jill & Matt’s wedding photos here. Jill & Matt put a ton of time and effort into hosting a amazing affair with tons of beautiful details and I loved being a part of their big day.
My photographs were also featured for a great article on farm weddings. All of the photos featured are from Jess and Zach’s gorgeous, rustic wedding at the Round Barn Farm in Red Wing, Minnesota last fall. I absolutely LOVE farm weddings, and if you’re planning a wedding at the Round Barn Farm, I am dying to shoot there again! Jess was interviewed for this article and there is a ton of great advice, so pick up a copy of the magazine and read for yourself!
Lastly, I was interviewed for an article on boudoir photography, and my photos from Sandra’s session were featured! Because of the private nature of boudoir sessions, I don’t blog a ton of my work, but boudoir photography actually makes up a HUGE part of my business and I shoot a TON of boudoir sessions, so it was an honor to be interviewed. The article highlights a variety of FAQs about boudoir sessions and gives lots of helpful advice from women who have actually had boudoir photos taken and industry professionals. By the way, Hana from Mani Mela, is responsible for Sandra’s hair and makeup, and boudoir clients or brides-to-be, if you’re in need of an awesome hair and makeup artist that comes on site for you, I love working with Hana!
I love my clients! I got this email from lovely bride, Rachel, and it totally made my day!! I am SO THANKFUL to get to do what I do and be a part of such an important day in my clients’ lives! See what Rachel had to say, and Happy Weekend everyone! :-)
