10.19.12 Kate & Chad | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

Kate & Chad had an elegant and sophisticated day at the McNamara Alumni Center (one of my new favs).  Their engagement session back in June was so them: in and around King's Wine Bar, where they had their first date.  Wine, fine tastes, family and friends, and good company and conversation thread through their wedding day.  I just love how personal and unique this couple made their event - it really is an expression of who they are as a pair and these two pair SO well together! :)  Many happy years ahead!  Cheers!

10.13.12 Lisa & Randy | New Richmond, WI | Midwest Wedding Photography

Lisa & Randy were a referral from a referral. I photographed Lisa's daughter Brier's wedding in 2011 and her friend Aimee's 2010 wedding. What a joy to be able to complete a trilogy with Lisa & Randy!  Me = honored. :)

Over in New Richmond, Wisconsin (just over the border) L & R's ceremony was at Cylon Chapel with a DIY reception - stunning! - at Blue Horse Farm.  How clever, crafty, stylized and cozy their day was - truly a success!  It may have been wet and chilly, but the Beer Tent was warm, the atmosphere was buzzing, and the guests were cheerful!  No detail went unattended - my favorite: homemade bread in baskets, homemade pie for dessert, and homemade jam as parting favors.  So sweet - just like the bride and groom, who truly, simply enjoy one another!  Congrats!

Night Shooting | Minneapolis Couple Photography

Jamie of JuxtaPhotos and I rounded up a couple of gorgeous real-life couples and tromped out into the dark woods of Como Park one cold November night.  Here's what we created. :)
