Minneapolis engagement at the Minnesota State Fair

I had a really fun couple session with Katie & Kyle at the State Fair. Katie and Kyle are already married, but we had a fun engagement style shoot all over the skygliders and midway during sunset. Thanks, Katie and Kyle, for being such fabulous sports at the fair!


Joyce & Dan – small wedding at Como Park

Joyce and Dan had a lovely wedding at the Como Park Conservatory this June. The setting sun was a perfect backgrop for photos with the Como Conservatory, and even their dog was able to join us for a quick few photos.


Shannon & Steven – a preview

Shannon and Steven were married last weekend in Rochester. Here is a little preview while I process the rest.  Steven is also an artist (wonderful guitar player, as will be revealed in the photos to come later) and I really wanted to make sure I got something special for him and Shannon.


Becky & Christian – lovely wedding in Madison, with spring rain

I posted a few quick photos from Becky and Christian’s wedding a few weeks ago, and now I am ready for the full post. Becky and Christian were wonderful, and their wedding was beautiful and joyous. They were even willing to humor me and take a few photos outside between the rain storms! The ceremony was in Blessed Sacrament church, and then onto the reception at the Memorial Union in downtown Madison.

Congratulations, and thanks for letting me photograph your fabulous wedding!


Paired – a dining event based around art

I recently was lucky enough to go to Paired, wherein local chef Chris Olson creates a meal based around the work of a local artist. My husband wrote about it on Heavy Table, but I wanted to include a few more photos about the event that didn’t make it into the article.


Katie & Jake – fabulous red winter wedding

Katie and Jake took a risk with a January wedding that really paid off with some lovely snow to compliment the Katie’s fantastic red dress.

They had their reception at the lovely Edinburgh USA, and it was decorated beautifully! There was still just enough greenery all around to set off the season, and we had a great time taking photos in the lobby!


Tracey & Miguel – A stunning wedding at the Milwaukee Art Museum

Tracey and Miguel had a royally beautiful wedding at the Milwaukee Art Museum on Lake Michigan. The day was perfect, they have impeccable taste, and all of their family and friends were lively and emotional. I felt very lucky to be a part of such a classy affair!

I know that everyone put a lot of effort in to all of the details, and it made for some lovely vintage pieces mixed with the modern museum.

Not only did Tracey look gorgeous, but the whole wedding party (and Miguel!) looked great!

As you can see, the sun set during the ceremony, so we raced outside to grab the last of the dusk for some photos with the wedding party.
