Grant & Sarah's Wedding at The Copper Hen Restaurant

I love restaurant weddings. There’s something about having your closest friends and family gathered in a space, specifically designed for hospitality and fellowship, that translates really well into a wedding. Everyone feels comfortable. I’m so thankful Grant and Sarah invited me to document their wedding at The Copper Hen. Wearing their hearts on their sleeves and letting the day unfold unhindered was a complete inspiration to me. Just look at everyone’s faces that day. I was blown away by the amount of love and support they received and to be caught up in the whole day with them was truly memorable. Congrats Grant & Sarah. I’m so thankful for you both.

Stouts Island Lodge Wedding with Katy & Jon

The forecast was for rain. I was bummed. Stouts Island Lodge is a destination venue where family and friends travel to enjoy a weekend getaway. Guests swim, kayak, fish, soak up the sun, read while looking out over the lake, enjoy nature, and experience a slowing down and enjoying friends that is hard to replicate anywhere else in the midwest. Rain just gets in the way of enjoying the weekend. BUT, as often does...the weather turned. The wedding day was gorgeous and was only outdone by how amazing Katy and Jon looked together. Everyone involved pulled off the perfect wedding. Below are a collection of random moments and portraits caught throughout the day.

Bookings for 2019 are coming in, but I still have plenty of availability and I'd love to hear from yah! After 7 years, I'm amazed photography has turned into a career and one I love more now than when I started. Thanks so much for all your support. Literally, cannot do this without your help.      

Stephanie & Brian's Lake Minnetonka Boat Cruise Wedding

H2O. Water. Brian and Steph love it. Which is why they opted for a ceremony overlooking Lake Minnetonka, a quick ride on Brian's fishing boat, and a reception on Lake Minnetonka. They also had a lot of rain, which they didn't plan for or want. But, sometime's wedding days just don't go as planned and you have to roll with it. Thankfully, we had periodic moments without rain and enough time to enjoy the scenery and make some pretty rad images. Thanks, Steph and Brian. You embraced the day your received and made the most of it, with joy.
