I love seeing the gifts that brides get their bridesmaids. Little bags, wine glasses, etc. Grooms are good to their guys as well. I see coozies, socks, cocktail glasses. I recently found this amazing website Groovy Guy Gifts. They have an amazing collection of custom items you can purchase for groomsman. I was able to […]

I am going to start something new. Every Tuesday, I will do a post with some helpful hints and tips. It could be about taking photos, how to prepare for sessions, frequently asked questions, etc. Let’s kick it off this week with a photo taking tip! Most of us know the “rules” of photography. Don’t […]

I met Matt and Katie last year and was so excited they chose my team and I to photograph their wedding. It was truly an amazing day! Katie knew exactly what she wanted and that made my job so easy! These two are perfect for one another, and Katie is so supportive of her man […]

When I attended the Mankato Bridal Show in January, I gave away an engagement session and boudoir session. B was the lucky winner of the engagement session! They are having a destination wedding in the fall, but wanted to capture some pure Minnesota images. We met up at Minneopa State Park. I had never been […]

We hear a lot of photographers, including myself, talk about how important it is to capture your family with professional portraits. To take the time to have them done, and how you won’t regret it. We don’t say this to push our business. We don’t say this as a marketing strategy. We say this because […]

It is no lie that I LOVE light. I mean, I live and breath by the lighting of a session or wedding. If there is overcast, that’s totally fine, gives us more options on locations. But give me some flare, and I am in heaven.   That’s why timing is so important for natural light […]

Portraits should be fun. Any kind of portrait session should show you for who you are. Who you are right this moment. If you are a goofy family, then you should be goofing off.   Case in point. My sister’s family.   My brother-in-law is the least serious person I know. He makes jokes about […]

I recently put out there wondering what YOU guys wanted to know. My one and only comment (thanks guys! jk!) was about family sessions. I will be honest, I have wanted to post something about family sessions and things to expect and how to plan. So, this is perfect! Family session season is just around […]

I am finally blogging my last 2017 wedding, five weeks before my first of 2018 🙂 Truth is, I was procrastinating on this post. I wasn’t ready to end 2017 yet. It was such an amazing year, with amazing people. It will be hard to beat. I met S at the Marshall bridal show in […]

Twins: two unique souls united by birth.     ~Unknown Author These two certainly are special. I was honored to capture their senior year. Both are amazing athletes and beautiful inside and out. Their future is certainly bright! We met up at the shop first and got some studio shots.   Classic. So many sports! This […]
