Andrea & Tyler's E-Session | St. Paul Engagement Photography

What a sweet couple! I can't wait to photograph Andrea & Tyler's wedding next August at International Market Square. We had a great time cruising around Mears Park and Rice Park in St. Paul. It was pretty much a perfect fall evening - gorgeous! I've got to say I love that sign for "Save the Dates," too. Thanks so much you two... enjoy. :)

The Ladies' Session | Minneapolis Portrait Photographer

This is a little overdue, but I wanted to share some shots of my little sister and her gal pals. We cruised around Uptown one afternoon in August and got these fun, bright, happy images. I love all the bright backgrounds we found! Thanks ladies!

9.3.11 | Lara & Brandon | The Landmark Center

What a beautiful weekend: first their lovely rehearsal dinner in - overlooking - White Bear Lake and then a gorgeous ceremony and reception at the Landmark Center in St. Paul. You can hope for perfect weather like we had, but you can't plan on it! :) The striking floral and decor were by Sadie's Couture Floral & Events Styling - Melissa was a dream to work with, and, with her assistant, truly the "glue."

Lara & Brandon were just gorgeous! They really know how to throw a party! And seeing them together - and the way the looked at each other - was so heartwarming. Wonderful families as well - I had a blast walking around capturing candids and dance shots. Then we really let those wow shots take place in beautiful light. The love and relationship between these two comes out in peaceful, romantic, elegant images. Thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your celebration - it was a pleasure! Congrats!

Sassafras Floral & Garden Design | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

I had the opportunity to check out the ladies of Sassafras Floral and Garden Design in action recently. Prepping for a wedding-filled weekend, here are some shots of their masterful creations from two different weddings. Just stunning!

Grismer Family Portraits | Target Field & Stone Arch Bridge

I loved photographing this family. We had an awesome time at the Twins Stadium and then, after a wardrobe change, at the Stone Arch Bridge. Dashing young Owen and I share the same birthday and he kept me up to date on the countdown. :) So fun! Thanks to the wonderful Sam & Matt for unintentionally introducing us via their July wedding! Cheers, Grismers!
