Nicki and Nick

Love and laughter, they have to be two of the best things in life and when you can find that in someone else.. hold on tight! I think that’s what encompasses Nicki and Nick, I spent our entire engagement shoot laughing. It may have been because I was torturing Nick with photos left and right, but in the end we had a great day. It was one of those unseasonably warm afternoons with a slight breeze, this didn’t even phase Nicki in her gorgeous blue dress and kick butt black boots! You guys rocked it, admit it Nick.. you had a little fun right? I can’t wait for your wedding in less than 3 months, holy cow! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is definitely my favorite, I love how he’s holding her ๐Ÿ™‚

Representing the Gophers since this is where they got engaged!

Todd and Melissa – Target Field Engagement

For many people who know me I am one of the biggest Twins Fans. I swear the day Joe Mauer meets me, he’ll fall in love with me and we’ll live happily ever after ๐Ÿ™‚ So when Todd asked if I wanted to come down to Target Field to do more engagement pictures of him and Mel you can only imagine my excitement! I felt like a kid on Christmas morning, wait, we get to go in where? The Dugout? SHUT UP! I think I had a perma grin on my face for the whole 2 hours we walked around. Thank you again Todd and Mel, I had so much fun with you guys again! Here’s your sneak peek!

A little fun after freezing our butts off outside ๐Ÿ™‚

The Playshop

A week ago today I was attending the ever so fabulous Heather Cole’s Playshop in Missouri, a short 7 hour drive from Minneapolis and worth EVERY SINGLE SECOND ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t even begin to express my gratitude to Heather for putting together a Playshop like this, she dished her every secret, advice, workflow… you name it, she shared it! Not to mention those addictive Dove chocolates, which I went out and bought more of as soon as I got home. We had an amazing couple to photograph during the afternoon, they bared the FREEZING cold snow/rain/wind for us, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Danyelle and Josh!

When Heather told us we’d be photographing Danyelle and Josh later on in the day, I was ecstatic. I had seen their engagement and wedding photos on Heather’s blog and thought they had to be the most gorgeous couple EVER.ย  My friend Pam and I had gushed over their engagement photos, extremely jealous of Danyelle and her beautiful eyes, hair, clothes… okay Danyelle we just love you! Here are some of my favorites from our QUICK session, and can you believe all of these were taking either inside Heather’s garage or out in the front yard. Yeah, she’s just that AWESOME. ๐Ÿ™‚

Misty + John Engaged

As my grandmother always says “You need to get a ‘real’ job so you can fall in love. That’s where I met your grandfather, ย your mother and father met at work and your aunt and uncle.” ย Well Misty and John definitely listened to what my grandmother has been preaching to me for years! They met while working at Johnson Brothers Liquor and have been together ever since. We bared the unseasonably chilly weather for some photos in Excelsior and then headed home to meet their little babe Seven, one of the cutest pugs I have EVER seen.


Misty, you are BEAUTIFUL! ๐Ÿ™‚


Representing the Miami shirt for John, he’s a HUGE Hurricanes fan!


Ugh, that face… adorable!

Melissa & Evan Engaged

Melissa and Evan are such easy going people, our previous session were canceled due to the unpredictable Minnesota weather… we had the coldest 2 weeks in October EVER! Finally we lucked out with a beautiful fall afternoon, may have been a smidge windy but it was far better than a snow storm! I had such a great time with Melissa and Evan as we strolled around Excelsior, they are two of the kindest people! I got to hear the story of how Evan proposed to Melissa, and there need to be more romantic men like him in the world. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again for being so flexible with all our rescheduling, it was so nice to meet both of you!

Holly & Tom Engaged

They traveled all the way from Milwaukee to visit their nephew Finn and family this past weekend. Thankfully the weather worked out and we got together to do some engagement pictures. We couldn’t have done it without help from Finn’s mom Lisa, Holly and her scoped out the spots for our shoot and they were perfect! Although I think these two could be photographed anywhere and it wouldn’t matter because the love they have for each other just shines. I’m so looking forward to their wedding in August, thanks again Holly and Tom for coming all the way to Minnesota! I can’t wait to see you both again soon!


Seriously Holly, you are GORGEOUS! ๐Ÿ™‚


This last one is just for Tom! If you haven’t been to Uncle Franky’s on Broadway, you most definitely have to!
