A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing a very joyful wedding! As you’ll see from the photos below, the union of Sarah and Mike was very special! Honestly I think they may be the happiest and excited couple that I have yet to experience in wedding photography. I had so much fun during the editing process because their emotions certainly made an appearance in every photo!
Sarah and Mike, their wedding party, family, and guests were all such a pleasure to work with. Forecasters were giving us such mixed (and somewhat scary!) information about the weather that day but the rain held off and the ceremony was full of warm sun. This is certain to be a wedding that I remember. :)
Thanks for the opportunity to witness your marriage, Sarah and Mike! I had a wonderful time and, as always, congratulations!! :)
Here are (more than) a few of my favorites:
I first met this couple, Lori and Erik, when I photographed their engagement photos at the conservatory in St. Paul. It was wonderful to see them again for their big day.
I drove out to Turtle Lake, Wisconsin where we spent time at Lori’s church, a local bowling alley and bar, and then to Amery for their reception.
It was a wonderful day and I enjoyed getting out of the metro area and taking a drive by myself. :)
Here are a few of my favorites – it was a bright day!
I recently had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at my friend Amber’s church. When first meeting the couple I also realized that I had previously heard (good) stories about them when Amber and I used to work together. The groom and his family have been attending the church for years and the bride works there. I love weddings when people very involved in their churches come together – you can see the love and the effects of such a well grounded pairing on the faces of all of the attendees.
Both the sanctuary and the fellowship room posed some unique challenges for photographing but I was eager to step up to the challenge. For example, the windows in the sanctuary cast an almost underwater-ish hue across everything.
After the ceremony the wedding guests filled every nook and cranny where they enjoyed a large table full of deserts made by many of the guests and enjoyed what looked to be wonderful fellowship.
Here are a few of my favorites from the day… :)
On April fools day I had the pleasure of photographing a small wedding in the Sunken Garden of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory in St. Paul, Minnesota. Here are a few of my favorites:
Congratulations to Sam & Ray! :)
A couple of weeks ago I photographed an intimate at home wedding in St. Paul, Minnesota. The bride was absolutely gorgeous. I love her hair piece. :) We lucked out with a wonderful space to take portraits in one of their bedrooms and the layout of their home worked so well for the ceremony.
I skimmed the nearly 800 photos from the evening and picked out a few favorites to share:
It’s wonderful to have an oasis like the Como Conservatory in St. Paul, Minnesota to visit in the midst of the winter months. While winter weather still hasn’t fully arrived yet (it seems to be rather late this year), outdoor photos aren’t often an option. It’s chilly outside, it may be snowing or raining, and most people would rather not brave the elements.
For a small fee Como Conservatory allows a photographer to photograph up to two people for thirty minutes in the various Conservatory garden rooms. I visited there about two weeks ago with this nice couple who will be getting married next year. We quickly made the rounds in the gardens and were able to capture some great moments and it looks like we went somewhere pretty exotic and warm. :)
Congratulations! I cannot wait to photograph the wedding!! :)

My great friends Brooke & Scott got married on October 14th. I photographed Brooke getting ready at my house, the small ceremony on Theo Wirth Parkway a few blocks from our houses, and their reception at Wirth Pavilion. Everything went so well and turned out perfectly! :)
Here are some of my favorite photos…
Two things made me a little nervous to shoot this wedding:
I had one of the worst headaches of the past few years start just minutes before their ceremony and the groom is a photographer who I have worked with in the past.
I made myself feel like I had a lot to live up to while my brain could barely function.
But despite those things I think their photos turned out well. :)
What do you think?
