blog_title_decorationMELINDA & IAN | FINE ART ALBUMS

Melinda & Ian chose the prettiest fabrics for their Fine Art Wedding and Engagement Albums! I love that they’ll have their gorgeous albums to remember not only their wedding day, but their engagement session. Both albums were custom designed and feature the couple’s favorites images. Albums are printed on the highest quality photographic papers and hand-bound by skilled artisans right here in the US. There is no better way to preserve and showcase your photos!

blog_title_decorationPUBLISHED | SPRING SUMMER 2015

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!

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!

2014 | ADVENTURES

For one minute, walk outside, stand there in silence, look up at the sky,
and contemplate how amazing life is.

2014 was a pretty spectacular year; bringing me to New Orleans, The Riviera Maya, Yosemite National Park, Big Sur, San Fransisco, Las Vegas, Zion National Park, Arches National Park & Moab, Salt Lake City, all over Bulgaria, Greece, Istanbul & Cappadocia Turkey, St Petersburg & Moscow, NYC, northern Wisconsin, back to NYC, the Boundary Waters, the Apostle Islands, NYC yet again, Boston, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Budapest, Vienna, Sydney, Bali, Tokyo, and finally back to NYC one last time.

I am so grateful for the adventures I experienced and I am thankful to my husband for coming along or holding down the fort at home when he’s not able to join me (corporate life is tough!). My resolutions for 2015 are to say “yes” to more opportunities, soak it all up, take more adventures close to home, and to worry less. It always seems to work out in the end.
