Rebecca + Kooper | Minnesota Golf Club Wedding

I think I said “stop being so cute” about 43.5 times during this wedding. Rebecca and Kooper had a gorgeous wedding, beautiful details and surrounded themselves with great people. We started the day watching the weather, thinking we only had maybe an hour for photos. The rain held off the entire day, and we had a burst of sunlight as well! We felt incredibly lucky and it paid off in some amazing photos. Also, have you ever seen a bride run and jump into the arms of the groomsmen? Me neither, but Rebecca was 100% down with it. Check out their day below!

Caitlyn + Joseph | Minnesota Fall Wedding

I couldn't stop myself from overshooting when it came to Caitlyn and Joseph's wedding. Every time I turned around I found new things to capture. I don't know what I loved more, the beautiful fall colors or the amazing people that surrounded Caitlyn and Joseph. 

They are the friendliest people you could ever meet and their families and friends were the same way. From start to finish, their wedding day was so much fun and I was completely in awe of how great the day came together. I can't wait to show you more of their day below!

Tanner + Amy | Minnesota Greenhouse Nursery Wedding

Who said rainy wedding days mean you won't get amazing photos or have a beautiful day? Tanner and Amy had lots of good luck raining down on them! We did their first look in the father of the bride's vintage car with umbrellas in tow - Amy and Tanner were such troopers and were up for anything! Afterwords we need to duck inside and dry off, and Greenwood Nursery right between Milroy and Marshall was so hospitable and let us shoot in their greenhouse! It was beautiful and was the perfect backdrop on a rainy day. 

After their wonderful ceremony, we got lucky with exactly 10 minutes of no rain to do some more portraits in the SECOND vintage car that Amy's father owns. How great, right? Take a peek below at their day! We headed to the reception to party and fill out on an ENTIRE TABLE of cake. Amy and Tanner really know how to party their way into my heart.

Shout out to my 2nd shooter Rachel for her amazing help all day!

Rebecca + Joel | Lismore, Minnesota Backyard Farm Wedding

On the most beautiful day in August, I got to be apart of an adorable at-home wedding on a farm in Minnesota. Rebecca and Joel were so kind to invite myself, as well as all their guests, to Rebecca's family farm!

There were many gorgeous details and so much hard work that everyone put into the wedding, but the atmosphere was so relaxing and calm the entire day. Rebecca and Joel are amazing together and there is no way to describe them without using the words incredibly sweet and caring.

I'm excited to show off some the images from their day and share a glimpse of the fun day they allowed me to capture for them!
