wedding


 

Ross and Jackie

 

When I first started blogging my photography, I really, really wanted to blog everything. I wanted to blog everything, but I especially wanted to blog the weddings. Because weddings aren't like other photo sessions. They aren't just a short little snippet of a day, and they aren't meant to just simply capture what you look like this year. Wedding days are a story, and once the day passes, the photos and...

Bret and Mary

 

Bret and Mary got married last August, on a gorgeous day in Minnesota. I've enjoyed every wedding that I've photographed, but there were so many things about this day that I just loved. From the mismatched dresses (which is one of my favorite wedding trends,) and the fun loving and joyful people that made up the bridal party, to the thoughtful and sentimental details and moments that...

Alan and Janelle

 

Although Alan and Janelle's was my third wedding of 2016, Janelle was the first of those three brides to ask me to be her photographer. This was back in November, when I had just shot my first solo wedding, and I still wasn't completely sure what I was getting myself into. I wasn't sure if my pictures were good enough, if I trusted myself enough, if I had enough experience to really do my own weddings. So before...

Jason and Katie

 

Jason and Katie got married on a gorgeous Saturday back in May. I had traveled to Minnesota the weekend before for Brett and Kelly's wedding, so I met Katie only a few days before her big day.

 

 

I'm such an awkward person, so I always worry when I photograph a wedding without really...

Brett and Kelly

 

Brett and Kelly got married on a gorgeous Saturday back in May, and I loved so much about their day. The colors were so bright and springy, there were some awesome DIY projects incorporated into the wedding, everyone was so friendly and cheerful and attentive...such a fun day with such...

Brett and Ruth

 

Being the oldest girl in my family, and only having two older brothers, we haven't really had a wedding in the family that I've been able to be a part of. So second shooting weddings this past year, I've been able to witness more than I had been in my 19 years before that.

 

And so far, I think that this one...

Charley and Kaitlin

 

School and work and life have been keeping me busy lately and blogging has kind of fallen to the bottom of my to-do list. But I have a few things that I want to share, so I'll see what I can get posted in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed I can do it all! First up.

 

Charley and Kaitlin got married on a cold and windy day back in November. This was...

Mike and Larissa

 

Mike and Larissa got married the last Saturday of August; the last of three wedding weekends in a row for me, and such a gorgeous one to end on. It rained on and off throughout the morning, which put a bit of a damper on things, but everything worked out in the end, as they tend to always do. All of Larissa's details were gorgeous, and her family and the bridal party were such fun people to...

Brady and Katie

 

This was the first of a few weddings that I second shot for Larissa this year. Each time that we work together, I enjoy it more and more. Spending a wedding day with her, bouncing ideas off of each other, talking light and angles and poses, and getting giddy over the shots on the back of each others cameras? SUCH a great way to spend a Saturday! And it makes it so much easier to have...

James and Katy

 

Ever since Katy asked if I'd be willing to help out with her wedding pictures, I've been wondering what in the world was I going to write in the blog post. All that time to think and brainstorm, and I still don't know what to say. Because it's James and Katy. And they're so much more than could ever be summed up in a few short paragraphs...

Paul and Amanda

 

My awesome photographer friend Larissa (who's also just an awesome person in general) asked me to help her with Paul and Amanda's wedding day. This was my first time photographing a wedding, and second shooting was such a great learning experience!

 

Since Larissa was the main shooter and a lot of my photos were...
