Rebecca and John – Wedding Photography

I’ve been a wedding photography for a long time. Over 15 years now. That sounds crazy even as I type it. I never set out to be a wedding photographer or run my own business. It just kinda happened. I was talked into shooting my first wedding by a friend and before I knew it I had 6 weddings booked for the following year. The rest is history.

Over the years I have shot many different styles of weddings and I have to say military weddings have a special place in my heart. I wish I could explain why…I don’t come from a military family, I’ve barely held a gun and I grew up in Canada. Ya, so like I said, I don’t know why. But, put any person who has chosen to serve and protect my life, liberty and freedom in front of me and I get teary. And proud. And thankful. And so, that made this wedding really special. 🙂

This couple was cool and confident. The bride and groom handled every curve ball of the day with ease and grace. They were a dream to capture and it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday! We started out way up north at a church near Victory Memorial Parkway and then ended the night at Stonebrooke Gold Club.

Even after all these years, I still wake up on the day of a wedding excited to capture the beginning of someone’s new life. I love weddings. I love marriage.

Here’s some of my fav’s from the day! It was such a privilege to share in this precious day!

Evie and Rodea’s Wedding Photography

Wedding Photography is very near and dear to my heart. Nothing makes me smile like a wedding with friends who are like family to me. And when I get to keep coming back wedding after wedding, it’s more like a family reunion. The best part is when I put my cameras down and start to dance! Ya, I do that sometimes. 🙂

Wedding Photography is about telling a story and each one is so different…that’s why I love this job! Enjoy this incredible family…

Love, love, love!!! I was there and know how hectic and running behind pictures were! These pictures make it look like everyone was relaxed and in the moment. It’s amazing what you were able to capture in a rushed, hectic, small amount of time. You rock!!!!!

Nice Wedding..

Rachel and Akis – Wedding Photography, Rochester, MN

Getting to capture someone’s wedding is a pretty great honor. But…when I’m asked to come back and photograph the same family’s second daughter, I can’t help but smile. At the end of the night the mom gave me the most amazing compliment. she said, ” You came in as our photographer and you’re leaving as part of the family.” Isn’t that beautiful? Kinda amazing when you realize that people let you into their families when they have you as their photographer. I don’t take it for granted.

This beautiful family…there were so many beautiful moments and it was really hard to narrow the photos down to a few of my favorites to show you as a sneak preview. But, I hope you enjoy these! Two wonderful families coming together as one!

I never tire of meeting new families and couples about to begin the most amazing adventure…marriage is beautiful when cherished! I wish the best for Rachel and Akis!

Sukato Family Portraits – Japanese Gardens, MN

Having just graduated from Normandale Community College…I keep looking for opportunities to go back on campus. It was such an incredible experience and the Japanese Gardens has a very special place in my heart. (Many FITBIT steps were obtained in that location 🙂 We had a lovely time roaming and looking for fish in the pond while taking a few photos.

Growing up…

A year with young children means loads of changes! And I can prove it! Here’s last years family portraits.
