TANYA & MATT | ENGAGEMENT SESSION IN ST ANTHONY

Oh, fall.  It seems like a distant memory given the chilly winter temps happening right now in Minnesota!  One of my favorite things about fall is all the fun engagement sessions and weddings I get to photograph during this beautiful time of year!  Tanya and Matt wanted to take advantage, and luckily, we had a perfect, crisp day.  They brought along their adorable pup, Ansleigh, and we explored the Silverwood Park.  Tanya and Matt are getting married in summer of 2014 and I’m already counting the days.

MARY BETH & FRED | FALL ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Mary Beth & Fred are getting married! The happy couple chose to do their engagement session at Fred’s family home in Long Lake. Fred even asked Mary Beth to be his wife on a romantic snowshoeing expedition through the woods in this very spot. During their session it rained on and off, but Mary Beth and Fred were all smiles and laughs and even practiced their dance moves in front of the camera! Of course, they brought along their adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for some family photos! Cutest trio around!! Congratulations and I cannot wait for your wedding next summer!















Urška Majer - What a gorgeous session!

SUSAN & JON | WEDDING ON THE UPPER EAST SIDE

Susan & Jon were married at the gorgeous Pierre Hotel on the Upper East Side.  They had the perfect September day for photos at Central Park, then the sweetest ceremony. After that, it was time to celebrate and they hosted perhaps once of the most lavish, yet fun parties I’ve ever attended!  This group seriously knows how to have a good time.  Enjoy the preview!!





























Anni - These are lovely, beautiful work!

SARAH, BEN & ROUX | ANNIVERSARY SESSION

Sarah & Ben just recently celebrated their four year wedding anniversary.  I had the honor of capturing their beautiful big day, and I was so excited to capture this anniversary session too.  Their adorable Italian Greyhound, Roux, joined us.  Sarah styled their session to perfection- we did a fancy & formal look at the studio, then headed to Minnehaha for a windy, riverside picnic.  It’s always so fun to catch up with old friends!

LAUREN & DILLON | ARIA WEDDING WITH LASTING IMPRESSIONS

Lauren & Dillon were married on a sunny, September day.  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but everything was perfect from start to finish.  Lauren & Dillon were the definition of classic beauty and their celebration was so much fun!!  Week after week I’m lucky to work with amazing vendors, and this stunning soiree was no exception. Thanks to Sarah of Lasting Impressions Weddings for her impeccable execution of the day.  Thanks also to Emily J Hair + Makeup, Martha’s Gardens for the florals, Magnificent Milestones for the stationery suite, and last but definitely not least, the amazing staff at Aria.  Congrats to the happy couple!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness!!
