Tony + Hannah // Wedding Photography

We started the 2015 wedding season off early with an amazing couple – Tony and Hannah. They are full of life, lots of laughter and love. Hannah is the younger sister of Rachel whom we photographed getting married to Tyler back in 2013 (you can view their wedding here.) It was so much fun working with their family again and meeting Tony’s family and friends. Though we were at the same locations we were for Rachel and Tyler’s wedding, we were able to capture images that really reflect Hannah and Tony’s personality and relationship. Finding something new and beautiful in a familiar scene is one of the things I love about being a photographer. It challenges you to see things in a way you haven’t thought to look for before.

Tony and Hannah, thank you so much for letting us be apart of your wedding day. May your love for life and each other bring you joy and happiness in all your days.

Kaiser Family

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’d like you to meet the Kaiser family, my aunt, uncle and cousin. If you know me or my mom, you’ll see the resemblance to Marianne in these pictures. Over Thanksgiving we traveled to Illinois to visit them and my grandma, so we did a little family session one morning. This is also the first shoot I used my new photo baby – the Nikon D810. I’m really happy with the camera, and how these images turned out. Enjoy!

Austad Family // Hudson WI Maternity Photographer

This beautiful family is growing!! Today is actually the due date, but their beautiful, healthy, baby girl decided to come a few days early. I figured I should probably blog their maternity session before the newborn portraits, which I am so excited to be photographing next week! Jeri is beautiful everyday, but I told her she should have lots of kids, because pregnancy looks so good on her, she just glows, and if Jude is any indication, she has really cute kids. She told me that would not be happening, but I still think she should. I cannot wait to meet the fourth member of their family soon. Stay tuned for the newborn pictures. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Belisle Family Portraits // Hudson WI Family Photography

A little over a month ago I met the Belisle family at Willow River State Park and had the perfect fall afternoon with beautiful fall colors. We did a mix of family photos and first birthday pictures. What an adorable family and can the little guy get any more cute?! Seriously? My word. Makes your heart melt. Thanks for letting me capture this milestone in your family, I had a blast working with the three of you!

Mitchell // Senior Portraits

A couple weeks ago, I drive to my aunt and uncles house to photograph my cousin, Mitchell, for some slightly belated senior portraits since he has already graduated high school. Mitchell is a gifted guitar player, and has a fantastic laugh and smile, and though he won’t admit it, he enjoys being in front of a camera. It was a fun session to say the least!

Thomas // Stillwater MN Senior Portraits

Thomas took a chance with me, and I think it paid off well. Thomas said he was looking for a location that was outdoorsy and by some water. My first instinct here in Hudson is the obvious- Lakefront Park. but I wanted to try something new; to go somewhere I have not photographed before.  I suggested doing his senior portraits at the Boom Site in Stillwater, MN. I had only heard of this location from a friend a while back. Thomas was up for the adventure, so I met him and his mom there. We were all pleasantly surprised. We met on a day that had been raining all morning, but cleared just in time for the session. It was awesome! Thomas is a senior in Woodbury, and is looking to go into computer science and/or music. He is one talented kid, and of the nicest kind. Have a great senior year and best wishes in all you do Thomas!

Lucas & Sarah // Hudson, WI Wedding Photography

Lucas and Sarah tied the knot in one of my favorite places in Hudson – Prospect Park. They planned a simple and beautiful ceremony overlooking the St. Croix River. Some of the trees had already started to change colors which made for the perfect backdrop against the black and white wedding party attire. Sarah was an absolutely stunning bride and the way she looks at Lucas reflects the love they share. Congratulations Lucas and Sarah. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to photograph your wedding ceremony!

Grace // Woodbury MN Senior Photographer

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’d like you to meet Grace. She is the younger sister of Emily, and a beautiful individual. We had the perfect summer day at Minnehaha Falls for her senior session. I am thrilled with how her images turned out. Grace picked the perfect outfits that really show her personality and worked great with the variety of backgrounds available at Minnehaha Falls. Grace I hope you have a memorable senior year and best of luck to you in your future.

Adam & Audra // Engagement Photography

Ok, so I get excited about all of the engagement and weddings that I photograph, but this one I am even more excited about! Audra and Adam are so great and I love their vision for their wedding coming up this winter. I am not going to ruin any surprises, you will have to stay tuned for that. but the following images from their engagement session will give you a hint as to how fun this couple really is. When Audra first contacted me about doing an engagement shoot at Carver Park, I was excited. But then she said they wanted to go double slalom water skiing as part of the session and have me photograph from the boat- I was pumped!! How fun is that?! They skied at sunset which created beautiful lighting in the background. Adam (as you will see in the last photograph here) is an AMAZING slalom skier. Together they love being outside and being active. This was the perfect session to show their interests and their relationship. As I said, stay tuned in February to see images from their wedding. I cannot wait. Congratulations Adam and Audra. Thanks for letting me be apart of your adventures!

Nic & Tamara // Duluth Wedding Photography

When I think about Nic and Tamara’s wedding, my thoughts race from the weather changing from rain to sun right in time for the ceremony, the perfect Duluth beach backdrop, the sound of the crashing waves, the traditional Thai water blessing, the gorgeous bouquets and flowers, Tamara’s wedding band made by Nic himself, the beautiful decorations at the Duluth Depot, the exceptionally delicious meal and carrot cake among so many other things.

However, the things I think I will remember most are the small moments. Nic’s expression when he sees Tamara for the first time that day. The way Tamara locks eyes with Nic as she is walking down the aisle with her parents, and the countless stolen glances and smiles they share during the ceremony and throughout the night. During the reception, I was talking with Tamara, and Nic interrupts (in a polite way) to tell Tamara how beautiful she looks. The deep felt gratitude they expressed to their family and friends tells so much about the couple. You can tell that the love and respect between them runs deep. They are a truly beautiful couple – inside and out. It was an honor and blessing to witness the unity of these two lovely people. Congratulations Nic and Tamara!
