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 […]

Griego Family


August 29, 2023

I first photographed this precious family last year when sweet baby George was about 3 months old, so I was thrilled when Andrea reached out to schedule photos again for his 1st birthday! It was such a joy to see this family again and how much George had grown! He’s at that ridiculously adorable age […]

Walker / Class of 2024

Walker is a senior! I have known this guy since he was 7 years old. And now suddenly he’s about to graduate! It has been such an honor watching our best friends’ two boys grow up to be such kind, accomplished young men. Walker was the most adorable and funny little kid, and he’s grown […]

Ryland / Class of 2024


July 24, 2023

Our first attempt at Ryland’s senior session was rained out, but on our second try we ended up with an absolutely perfect summer evening! Carlos State Park is one of my favorite places for photos and we had abundant sunshine, comfortable temps, and no bugs (a very rare combination in Minnesota!). I really enjoyed walking […]

Abbey + Sean / Chattanooga TN Engagement

I was beyond honored when Abbey asked me to be her wedding photographer! To say this girl is awesome is such an understatement. Her humor, wit, kindness, and humanity is just the best, and everyone who meets her loves her. So when she and Sean got engaged, I knew he must be equally as cool.

2022 Year In Review

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.

October 13, 2022

I have officially run out of Fernholz seniors to photograph! I’ve had the honor of watching these awesome kids grow up over the last ten years, and photographed both of Gavryn’s older sisters, Tatum and Riley, when they were seniors. And now its Gav’s turn! This kid has grown up to be seriously SO cute […]

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.
