Katie + Landon / N. Georgia Wedding

There were spotty chances of rain all day, which worried Katie a little, but I told her about the Wedding Rain Miracle, that I, and most photographers, experience all the time. This strange phenomenon that happens when rain is forecast for a wedding day, but weirdly doesn’t happen at all or does happen but stops at just the right moments for ceremony, photos, etc. And it happened for them. Perfect weather at all the right moments, plus a rainbow!

Abbey+Sean / Chattanooga, Tennessee Wedding

Weddings

April 23, 2024

Abbey and I met in 2017 and became friends working as nurses together on a cardiac step down unit. She has since moved on as a nurse practitioner, and I really miss working with her. Kind, funny, smart, and genuine, she is not only a great nurse but the best kind of coworker and friend. […]

Shannon + Nick / Cape San Blas Wedding

We had absolutely perfect weather all week; a serenely calm ocean, sunny blue skies, and on our final morning, a stunning full rainbow right in front of our beach house. You could not have asked for better conditions for a destination beach wedding.

Alex + Kyrie / Alexandria MN Wedding

Weddings

September 30, 2023

Kyrie and Alex’s wedding day forecast called for rain and storms all day…not ideal. But, as I have witnessed countless times, the rain held off until exactly the time we were done with all photos and everyone was tucked away inside for the ceremony. I met these two last fall for their engagement session and […]

Styled Wedding/Duluth MN

What a gorgeous styled shoot! We had Kynze and Alex as perfect models, questionable weather that worked out perfectly in our favor, and the stunning backdrop of northern Minnesota. For those who are new to the term, styled sessions are collaborative events that provide an opportunity for wedding photographers and other vendors to create and […]

2022 Year In Review

Engagement, Family, Senior, Weddings

January 5, 2023

Oh, January. Holiday decorations are put away, the house is clean, the hustle of the holidays settles back to a more normal pace….it allows for time to take a breath and reflect on the past year, and space to become re-invigorated for the upcoming year. Slowing down and looking back at the previous season always helps me to feel inspired and motivated for what could be for this year! Upon this reflection, I am always in awe at what amazing people I get to meet and work with. I am so very grateful for my 2022 clients.

Paige + Tanner / Ottertail Wedding

Cold, misty rain and wind threatened Paige and Tanner’s big day in late September…but they decided to take the risk and continue with the plan for an outdoor ceremony at Thumper Pond Resort. Thank goodness they did, as it turned out to be lovely! We even had sneaks of sun during the ceremony, which was just beautiful.

Heather + Andrew / Alexandria Wedding

Heather and Andrew’s wedding was everything! It was gorgeous, relaxed, sweet, filled with love and beautiful emotion, with family at the center. The (now official!) Broussard family traveled from Nebraska to get married at Bold North Cellars, which was originally part of family farmland, so besides being a stunning venue, it was an especially meaningful place to them.
