Adam & Holly | Wedding

During a rainy day in St. Paul, the warmth between 1 couple couldn't be more real. Adam and Holly celebrate their love and tie the knot. Starting at the families historic mansion home in St. Paul, we travel through the the dual cities of Minnesota. Discovering the new autumn colors this lovely time of year has to offer, while running like children through rain puddles, sharing kisses under twisted vines, and dancing upon the worn antique floorboards of the 1800’s. Eventually finding ourselves in Minneapolis, among a small, intimate group of friends and family. All whom came together to bare witness, to two singular souls, who vowed to share their lives together, forever <3

Enjoy the sneak peeks, will be adding in the near future!

Grayson 2 Years Old | Family

Hana, Matt & Grayson are in front of my lens again. And this time, Grayson is 2 years old! How fast time flys. Looking back on their 1 year shoot, Grayson has grown so much, and is SO BIG. I love this part of my “job”, watching a family grow together, and reminding myself how precious time is.

Tyler & Tharmila | Wedding

Tyler caught “the one” here. Proposing with a fishing lure that said “Marry me”, these two decided to celebrate their wedding day honoring their love for the outdoors and their favorite past time, fishing. Up north, on the lake, surrounded by their closest family members, these two kind hearted individuals became one family, with the words “I do”.

Karrah & Seneca | Family

“Having children just puts the whole world into perspective. Everything else just disappears”.
Karrah & her beautiful daughter Seneca. I love these two so much. I’ve had the joy of capturing Karrah’s marriage to Raleigh, their pregnancy, and now here we are over a year later and Seneca is walking, showing off her sweet climbing skills, and reaching out to give “auntie Jen” hugs. Karrah says she’s never felt such purpose in life, and that makes me so happy to hear. A bond between mother and daughter, what a beautiful thing.
I’m just over here having some uber baby fever after our day together <3

Jen & Alex | Engagement Part iii

In a three part series, over two different countries, Alex and I capture our engagement photos. Stopping at various scenic locations throughout our camper van road trip, we donned our finest attire, grabbed our trusty tripod, and had some fun in front of the lens. Trust me when I say, it’s not as easy as you might think, to take your own engagement photos (or maybe I was the only one who would think that it could be), but when timelines don’t line up with other photographers, and you and your fiancee are going to be in some of the loveliest places in the world, you just go for it! I wish I could fit our whole trip, all the beauty we saw and experienced in one session, but that’s just not possible. So enjoy some of the bits and pieces of beauty we captured in the background of our love story along the way <3

P.s: Alex, I love you darling, thank you for your patience throughout this adventure.

Part iii: Isle of Skye, Scotland

Arens Family | Holiday

The Arens family, o, m, g! SO cute!
A preview into this family’s holiday session at Hansen Tree Farm. With Jessica, her husband Bruce, and their three boys Jude, Nathanial, and a baby boy due in the Spring (yes, she is pregnant, and she looks great btw!). This was such a fun session. So full of love, and energy! These boys were all over the place, but when you had the chance to catch up and capture those moments of love, it was just precious. We had a warm, clear day, allowing us to play with the sun a bit. Catching that golden hour, which you just cannot beat. Enjoy <3

Jen & Alex | Engagement Part ii

“She knew she loved him, when ‘home’ went from being a place, to being a person

Part ii:
We drove through previous night, until the stars came out in unfathomable numbers. We found a beat up road, and headed down the one lane path to find an area to rest our heads for the night. Eventually, Alex and I found our way to an an abandoned gravel lot, without quite knowing what was surrounding us, but we knew this place would do just fine for the time being. At the break of dawn, I stepped out of our camper van to find one of the most beautiful mountainsides, sprinkled with lava rocks, moss, and bright green vegetation. I ran back to the van, where Alex was slowly stirring awake, and asked him to put on his 2nd engagement outfit. This was our next spot I thought. Sure enough, the view got even better once we ran up the hill, with the enormous span of the icy blue Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, waiting for us in the background. Who would have thought, we had parked ourselves in the middle of such a beautiful, desolate place.
