Mai + Gabe’s Oregon Coast Styled Elopement

I was scrolling through my journals the other day and noticed I was missing something… HOW DID I FORGET TO BLOG SUCH AN INCREDIBLE ELOPEMENT?!?! Last September, my friend and I took a road trip out west, where we met Mai + Gabe.  These two are seriously incredible, kind-hearted humans who know no end to […]

Lada + Alexander’s Bellevue, WA Couples Session

I had the chance to meet up with Lada + Alexander when I was visiting Washington state last week.  They are both incredibly sweet and up for anything.   To top it off, they’ve got killer accents! We met up on Alex’s lunch break and (despite the rain) went to Newcastle Beach Park for all […]

Emily + Jeremy’s Rainy Sawmill Wedding

There’s little that makes a wedding more enjoyable than a couple who knows how to enjoy every moment, whether they’re with each other, friends, family or their beloved puppy, Winston. I’ve been fortunate this wedding season not to have rain during the ceremony… until this wedding!  The good news, rain didn’t stop Emily + Jeremy […]

Karina + Logan’s Winter Engagement

Winter photos are for the brave and for couples who know how to keep each other warm… Seriously though, these two were such good sports on this freezing cold day and have these gorgeous photos to show for it! I always recommend doing your engagement session during a different season than your wedding.  This way, […]

Jake + Mandy’s Backyard Lounge Wedding

The Local Lounge is a hidden gem of a venue in the Eau Claire, Wisconsin area.  Inside, the lounge is full of character and charm, while outside, it is warm and welcoming with a fire pit and a stage with a wooden backdrop. Jake + Mandy’s wedding included an emotional first look, wood flower bouquets […]

Sam + Josh’s Rustic Autum Wedding

The fun meter was set to a 10 for Sam + Josh’s wedding this fall.  The wedding party was ready to celebrate the marriage of their friends from the beginning… and I’ve never seen a more lively reception with gorgeous rustic elegant decorations and detailing. There were countless human pyramids, air guitars and glow sticks […]

Mariah + Kyle’s Big Falls Engagement

A trend that’s been picking up steam for engagement photography and wedding ceremonies – including your furry friends. I’m a huge fan of incorporating meaningful aspects of the life you’ve built together into your session and a puppy is a great way to do just that!  These little guys work their way so deeply into […]

Audrey + Michael’s Christmas Inspired Boho Wedding

Here’s a little holiday project I’ve been working on and am so excited to share with you! This shoot was styled with a boho Christmas theme in mind.  I used subtle hints of reds and greens and berry hues in the makeup to bring in classic holiday colors, without being overwhelming.  The rose gold geometric […]

Kate + Neil’s Fox Valley Industrial Wedding

Aside from adventure elopements, industrial weddings are my cup of tea.  As much as I love nature, I also have a soft spot for the city. Wedding photography takes me to Appleton, WI a few times a year, giving me the chance to explore the other end of my state.  All in all – I’m […]

Janett + Connor’s Wahclella Falls Styled Elopement

Four years ago, I moved out to Portland, Oregon in what could be seen as an attempt to find myself.  I had realized that I was no longer happy where I was in the Twin Cities, so I started saving  for a move out west.  At first, California + Colorado were the only two spots […]
