This couple actually got married a year ago…in Norway! I knew they would come dressed in their bunads. Man, did they ever look stylish! Carolyn even re-created her wedding bouquet. They looked really nice! With the waterfall in the background it looked like it could just as well have been shot in Norway. We lucked out with some cooler weather, otherwise the wool outfits would have been totally awful to wear.

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

We sooo majorly lucked out with the weather! What a beautiful day to do engagement photos. What a sweet couple. Laughing and being totally in love the whole time…just made my job easier.

We headed to Hokah, specifically Como Falls. The waterfall is pretty cool and the sandstone has a warm glow to it. We also got in a few shots across the river.

Thanks for hanging out! Here are some of my favorite pictures. Enjoy!

I met Dustin when he was only five years old, when I lived with his family for a year. He was such a sweet little blondie back then. Dustin has always been a laid-back kind-of-guy…and was very patient during this engagement session.

Rachel…what can I say…such a beautiful and fun woman!

We drove down to Beaver State Park for the first part of our shoot. The leaves were almost all gone, but still…what a beautiful area! The temperature was wonderful and besides one other couple…we had the place all to ourselves.

Next we headed up to the heart of Caledonia, MN, did some shots by this huge water tower, found a tree with leaves and last but not least…a fun playground set. LOVE the kissing picture. Sweet…is the word!

Enjoy a few of my favorites!

Just wanted to post one shot from yesterdays wedding. A beautiful setting at Berwood Hills B&B. More to come…

When Rachel and David asked me to photograph their wedding I knew I was in for a treat. The fact is…it was so much sweeter and from the heart than I could have imagined. Their true love was just pasted on their outsides…for all of us to touch and feel. It was simply amazing!

The wedding and reception both took place in the Steyer Opera House at the Hotel Winneshiek in Decorah, Iowa. The ceremony itself was held on the stage. There were many things that made this such a special ceremony. First of all the pastor, Christine, was a class mate of David’s. Not only was she original, funny and sincere…she was also one of those special people that realized the wedding was not about her. Therefore, the couple was facing family and friends, as supposed to the traditional…backside view. A small thing, I know, but one of those details that made the whole thing special.

Here are some of the images from their wedding. Enjoy!

What a fun couple! What a sweet wedding! What a beautiful day! I truly feel honored to have been a part of this very special day for Natasha and Joey! Everyone were so nice, friendly and helpful. We got the “show” (meaning group photography) on the road right on time. We even got done ahead of schedule! Everyone seemed truly happy. What a fun day to be me!!!

Congratulations you two…what a wonderful couple!

Here is a little taste of their day! Enjoy!

Friday morning looked gloomy and grey. I checked the weather forecase, which predicted more clouds and possibly rain. Oh well, I thought…you take what you get and make the best of it. Right before I left my one daughter looked at me and stated that the weather was going to be sunny and super ALL DAY. Thanks sweetie, I told her, thinking what a positive mind she had. As I drove to the Winnebago Valley Park, where the shoot would be, I could see blue skies to the north and…was I just imagining this or were the clouds going away…? By the time I got to the park the clouds were almost gone. Amazing!!!

I met Natasha last year when she and her mother came to visit me and see me and my work. Now I got to meet Joey. I think Joey smiled and made jokes the whole time. What a fun couple! What a treat! Later this summer I get to shoot their wedding as well. I’m very excited!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

What a wonderful wedding! Everyone was smiling and having a great time! The wedding party all got in the horse drawn wagons for a ride. What a fun time! The reception was at the Four Seasons Communitycenter and it was packed. Here are some shots from their day.

Finally! I’ve been able to pick a few favorites from this summers best party – ever! Style, class and fun are just some of the words to describe Tonje’s wedding. She is a planner and darn good at it too. Nothing was done half way. Everything was top notch! On top of that there were fun people everywhere. Family, friends and even some people that showed up in disguise. 

Congratulations to my favorite, and only, sister! : ) See you in October!

Amy and Tim have a wonderful connection to each other and their family. It was a fun Saturday and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. A little excitement when the ceremony was about to start…and no one came. It turned out that one of the groomsmen’s pants had split in the seams and a needle and thread was needed for him to be able to make it down the isle. Kathy, the organist, played a few extra songs and after a little wait the ceremony could begin. Here are a few shots from that day.
