Charlie & Jessica tied the knot on a steamy June day. We started off at the Lumber Exchange in downtown Minneapolis, where the ladies were getting their hair and makeup done, while the guys got into their stunning navy suits. I loved all of the bride's blingy details - from her sparkly heels to her show-stopping dress! The groom even had some impressive details for the day - a custom tailored suit complete with his name inside the jacket, along with rocking his dad's own wedding cufflinks. Once everyone was done up to the nine's it was time for the first look on the marble staircase of this historic Minneapolis building. Charlie & Jessica were so excited to see each other and spend the day together! After taking advantage of the white marble entryway for some portraits, the wedding party hopped on a trolley bus to head to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum for some more photo ops, just as the rain lightened up. The greenery made the photos really pop! I loved the richness of the bridesmaids' sparkly dresses with the groomsmen crisp blue suits. And not to mention the bride's bouquet - have you ever seen a flower arrangement like that? We snuck in some family portraits before heading off to the church for the ceremony.
At Mount Calvary Lutheran Church in Excelsior, the same pastor officiated the service that had also married the bride's parents, which I thought was so special. After the heartfelt ceremony, including a beautiful solo by Jessica's sister-in-law, also named Jessica, the bride and groom left to the cheers of their guest under a sparkling of bubbles. The wedding party made a pit stop at Maynards, a favorite hangout on Lake Minnetonka, before taking the trolley back downtown for the reception. The Lumber Exchange was decorated with some incredible flower centerpieces along with a delectable dessert bar, featuring my favorite: DONUTS! Following a yummy dinner, the speeches had everyone rolling in laughter. Then it was time to dance the night away. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Ripley!

"Kirsten called me up and asked if I could marry her and her best friend. Turned out she meant Jeremy!" - the introduction to pastor's wedding day message and this couldn't be more true! Kirsten was just beaming the entire day as her and Jeremy said I do surrounded by their friends and family. We started off the big day at Faith Lutheran Church in Waconia, MN. The bride's lace dress and pearl details were oh-so-stunning. The groom looked sharp in his black suit and the pink bouquets smelled heavenly! The couple's first look under a blooming tree was too sweet and adorable. We squeezed in some wedding party and family portraits prior to the heartfelt ceremony. Once Jeremy & Kirsten were pronounced Mr & Mrs, it was time to celebrate, and celebrate they did! A party bus whisked them off to a quick stop at Floyds before arriving to the Chaska Curling & Event Center, where we did a few more wedding party photos by the water. The speeches were hilarious! Then it was time for everyone to dance the night away to one of my favorite bands, Ragtown. Congratulations, Jeremy & Kirsten!

Smiley Aavry with her two front teeth was so adorable for her 10 month portraits. After having a big brother, it's just so fun to see her in headbands and pink! With her curious expressions and desire to explore, Aavry's personality seems wise beyond her age. I really enjoyed her outfit change to floral leggings and ruffled green shirt, along with a lace headband. Her bright eyes and mischievous smile just melt my heart. Sometimes I see more of her mom in in her smiles but at the same time, I see more of her dad's looks. Aavry's last outfit change into a cozy white, mint, and coral winter onesie was my all-time favorite and went perfectly with an orange backdrop! She loves playing with her feet and making people laugh! I love watching her grow and can't wait to see her again soon!

Tom & Rebecca were blessed with the most beautiful spring day to tie the knot in a sweet outdoor ceremony at Bearpath Country Club in Eden Prairie, MN (perfect place to have a wedding for this golf-loving groom). I first met up with the ladies getting ready at the stunning Sheraton hotel in Bloomington, where they cheers'd over mimosas and opened their gifts from the bride - beautiful pearl and crystal jewelry for the big day. All of Rebecca's details were on point, from her sparkling hair piece to her blinged out heels! I swear her bridal gown was made just for her. As much as I love orange and color, Rebecca adores neutrals and all the sparkle! The small influences of the roaring 20's style with the inclusion of feathers and other vintage feels brought the day together in the most perfect way. Then we headed off to Bearpath Country Club to finish preparing for the ceremony. Although they didn't do a first look, the bride and groom gave each other thoughtful gifts before walking down the aisle. The sun was shining as Tom saw his beautiful bride for the first time being escorted by her dad! The heartfelt ceremony concluded with cheers from the guests as the newlyweds kissed and were pronounced husband and wife. Everyone was all smiles for family portraits and group shots with the well-dressed wedding party. Of course, I also was sure to get a ton of images of the newest Mr. and Mrs. - they were so happy! Then it was time to head inside to the wonderfully decorated banquet hall for dinner, cake, speeches, drinks, and dancing, with the couple surrounded by their amazing friends and family. Before the sun was completely set, I stole the couple back outside for a few more intimate portraits together. Congratulations to the newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Tom & Rebecca Bennek!

After a bit of a crazy pregnancy (new jobs, commuting, selling a house, buying a new house), adorable Chloe made her entrance into the world at the beginning of November! Proud parents David and Emily and big sister Freya were so excited to welcome her. I made a trip down to Iowa to meet the newest addition and take some lifestyle newborn portraits of sweet Chloe. Mom Emily and I are college friends and she runs an awesome home decor and organizing blog over at The Small Stuff Counts - make sure to check it out! We started off with photos in her adorable nursery - I loved all the bright pops of color included with the neutrals! (Since our session, Emily has completed lots of nursery projects which she's shared on her blog!) Chloe already loves looking at her parents with her precious little eyes. So attentive for a newborn! Her dark hair was so cute with her pink headband - her aunts made sure to have lots of options to pick from. After some family portraits, it was time for Chloe to shine on her own! Emily and I had so much fun picking out baskets and coordinating blankets for her pictures. Of course, I couldn't resist picking out an orange headband for some of them. I love this little one and can't wait to watch her grow!

Since buying new property and adding a little handsome guy to the family, the Armstrongs were in need of updated portraits. On a beautiful fall weekend, I headed down to their new riverside property out in the country near Mazeppa, MN to snap some new pictures for Taylor, Steph, Grant, and of course fur ball Molly. I loved the way the sun was setting behind the colorful trees in their gorgeous front yard and 9 month old Grant had fun taste testing the leaves. His big blue eyes melt my heart with every smile. Then, we headed down by the river to take advantage of some water backdrops - it is so peaceful back there! Taylor has already enjoyed fishing from the shoreline and can't wait for Grant to join him someday. I loved hearing about the couple's plans to update their new property and can't wait to see what all they do! Enjoy your new family portraits, Armstrong family!

After a fun night out to dinner and playing grown-up arcade games, Trevor popped the big question with a beautiful vintage-styled ring! Buffalo Creek Park was the perfect backdrop for Trevor & Chelsie's fall engagement portrait session. All the trees were full of gorgeous warm colors and we had so much fun laughing together. I loved hearing about the fun things the couple enjoys doing and how their wedding plans are falling into place. Both of their bright blue eyes popped with the light of the blue sky contrasted against the colors of the field. I really enjoyed Trevor's funny Pac-Mac shirt! After an outfit change into coordinating turquoise shirts, we explored some of the paths of the park and found a really pretty yellow-leafed tree. I had so much fun with this couple and can't wait to see them tie the knot!

http://www.aphotographer.me/blog/2018/5/spring-wedding-andy-allie-married-edina-mn-wedding-photographer spring interlachen country club wedding | andy & allie [married!] | edina mn wedding photographer
The last Saturday in April was an absolutely gorgeous day to celebrate Andy & Allie tying the knot! On the bright sunny morning, I arrived to the ladies getting all pampered at the Interlachen Country Club. I adored all of Allie's pastel-colored details along with the sparkle of her gold glitter shoes. Allie did a fun first look with her bridesmaids, as well as her dad and brother before seeing her groom. Andy & Allie's first look on their wedding day was full of excitement and joy! After reading each other heartfelt wedding day letters, we took some bride and groom portraits in the beautiful spring sun. Then the bridesmaids and groomsmen joined us in their dusty pink and purple dresses and sharp black suits (along with hot sauce socks, compliments of the groom!). The greens of the country club made for a perfect backdrop with the entire wedding party! Then it was off to St Stephen's church for the sweet and personal ceremony. There were lots of laughs when the priest presented Andy with his own skein of yarn and set of knitting needles - a nod to the bride's love of knitting. After communion and the pronouncement of the newlyweds, the bride and groom along with their friends were whisked off by party bus to celebrate at a local watering hole. The reception hall at the Interlachen Country Club was transformed with touches of pastel floral centerpieces, topped by wood-cut calligraphied table numbers. All of the guests had fun interacting and eating a delectable dinner. Following the speeches from the parents, best man, and maid of honor, it was time to dance! The groom had a chance to show off his amazing "Ukrainian Dance Moves" much to everyone's enjoyment. What a great way to cap off an amazing wedding day. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Smulka!

After dating for a DECADE, Dustin popped the question and Brittany said yes! I met up with the newly engaged couple to take their engagement portraits at Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Eagan with the warm fall colors. The trails were perfect to explore and thankfully we got started before the rain came! I love Brittany's stunning solitaire yellow gold ring - it just sparkled in the sunset. These two are so natural and easy to be around, they certainly made my job easy! I loved hearing about their upcoming wedding plans and they were troopers when it began to rain! Before we could wrap up the night, we climbed up a grassy hill to take in the colorful sunset. Fall sunsets are so pretty! Congratulations, Dustin & Brittany!

Growing up on a small town farm, Chelsea is an animal lover through and through. Her family farm made the perfect backdrop for her's and Michael's engagement session on a beautiful fall day outside of Cologne. We started off with Chelsea's horses - the couple got creative with some paint for a very unique save the date! I loved all the bright colors of the halters, lead ropes, and their outfits. Once the horses had enough fun, the couple's puppy Maisy got to join in on the photos. She is such a happy go lucky dog and thinks she's the size of a chihuahua! The fall colors of the nature preserve behind the farm were so bright - almost like the trees were on fire. These two had so much fun practicing how to do a dip and some dance moves out in the field as the sun started to set. They are so cute together and I swear they can't take a bad photo! After we had wrapped up, I made them get out of the truck one more time to take in the magnificent colorful sunset - which ended up being some of our favorite images from the whole session. Thanks for a great night together, and I cannot wait for your July wedding! Congratulations, again Michael & Chelsea!

There are so many words I could use to describe Derek & Brooke, but one of my favorites is "radiant." These two are a match like no other and the way they look at each other makes me melt! We had a gorgeous September day in St. Peter for their engagement portrait session. Always the fashionista, I loved the looks Brooke picked for their photos. Their outfits complimented the warm colors of the trees perfectly! This couple's smiles could not get any bigger! (Hello, Cologate, need any toothpaste models?!) I had a great time hearing about how they first met and what they are planning for their upcoming fall wedding. Brooke had so many fun ideas for photos and always the gentleman, Derek went along with them without complaint. I love these two so much and am so excited to see them tie the knot! Congratulations, Derek & Brooke!

Charlie & Jessica's early fall engagement session in Minneapolis included the cutest puppy ever, Louie! A Bernese Mountain puppy, Louie was so little fluffy (but isn't so little anymore!) His curious ways and puppy attitude kept us laughing during our session together. We started off with some portraits at the Gold Medal Park. This couple is so low key and natural together, making my job so easy! It was fun hearing stories of their travel adventures and how their wedding plans are falling into place. Do you love Louie's dashing red bow tie? Nearby, the Stone Arch Bridge made for a classic Minneapolis backdrop. Even though it was fall, there was still lots of greenery making these images pop. I am so excited for Charlie & Jessica's upcoming June wedding! Congratulations!

 I met up with one year old Aivy, and her mom and big sister on a sunny fall morning on the shores of Lake Calhoun for her portrait session! Newly walking, Aivy had a great time exploring all over. Big sister Ahlyvia looked precious in her coordinating maroon dress and sweater. I love seeing these two interact! The fall leaves were also fun to play in. After hamming it up for the camera, we got out a tu-tu, cake, and family high chair for Aivy's cake smash! It didn't take much convincing for her to dig in, face-first! By the end, her whole face was covered in white and pink frosting. What a fun session! My friend Mike tagged along to grab some behind-the-scenes video of what a session with me is like, which you can view here! Happy first birthday, Aivy!

A sunny afternoon at the beginning of fall was the perfect time to meet up with the Potasek's at their beautiful Lakeville property to update their family portraits. Complete with 3 little ladies, this family is anything but boring! The two oldest sisters had so many stories to tell me and the youngest (8 months old at the time) melted my heart with her adorable cheeks and bright blue eyes. These girls have so much room to run around - they even have a dock in their backyard! They had so much fun showing me their playset, exploring the tree that recently fell in a wind storm, and "how to pose best for photos." So cute! Photographing growing families and capturing these priceless memories is such a blessing in my career. I'm sure the girls have already changed a ton since we did this session! Enjoy this sweet family's images:

What a wonderful and unique day to celebrate Donny & Emilia! The Science Museum of Minnesota was the perfect backdrop for these science lovers. All of the bride's ruby details were so pretty, from her glitter Kate Spade Keds to her ruby red tiara. Her veil even include red sequins, thanks to her awesome mom! Once the bride & groom got dressed to a T, it was time for the first look. The musical stairs overlooking the river was a fun and beautiful location for Donny and Emilia to see each other for the first time on their wedding day. They were so cute! After some portraits, the couple's wedding party joined them. Flower girl Sarah was so cute in her matching glitter shoes and bouquet. She told Emilia that she looked "like Elsa!" Following some family photos, it was time for the ceremony! The vows were so heartfelt and made me tear up. Once pronounced husband and wife, they left to the cheers of their friends and family. Before heading up to the reception, we were able to run around the Science Museum exhibits for some great pictures with the dinosaur skeletons. It doesn't get much more unique than that! The reception decor - the tables were labeled with the Periodic Table of Elements - fit the venue perfectly! I loved the dinosaur figurines and beakers for flower vases too. Once dinner was served and the speeches were enjoyed, it was time to dance the night away! I snuck the couple outside for a few more night time portraits before wrapping up. What an awesome, meaningful, and exciting day celebrating Donny & Emilia! Congratulations, you two!

With a new home and a big announcement, Jared & Elizabeth decided to capture their newest family portraits at their new home in Bloomington. Located just across from a beautiful park with natural landscaping, their new home is just waiting to be filled with memories. I was so excited when they showed me what Margo was going to wear for the first part of our session - a shirt declaring her as a "Big Sister!" Whoohoo! Margo's giggle is just so fun and unbeatable. While exploring the tall grasses and paths of the park, we even saw a few deer run through! What a wild sight in the middle of the city. Of course no trip to the park would be complete without running off to the play set before we wrapped up. What a perfect new home to raise their growing family in. I am so excited for the year to come for the Leese/Kratochwill family!

This girl is so easy to laugh with - I feel like I've known her my whole life! Melissa and I met up on a beautiful fall afternoon in downtown Jordan, MN to capture her senior portraits at the start of her final year of high school. Her long dark hair floated so softly in the breeze and looked great against the green background of a garden. A brick backdrop made her wine-colored dress pop against the staircase in an alley. The sun started shining through the trees at the park down by the river, making Melissa's eyes and smile light up. What a fun session. Good luck on your senior year, Melissa!

It was a bright autumn night with the most perfect fall colors to get some photos of Matt & Jenn and their pup, Ruger. The tree-lined gravel road I met the couple at was stunning, with a canopy of yellow and orange leaves. I love getting photos of couples together when they don't have any nice photos yet. Even if you are not engaged or married, your dating relationship is still an important time of your life to have documented and cherished. As always, Ruger's antics gave us lots to laugh about. His golden coat looked so beautiful in the fall colors, and his smile couldn't get any bigger. We then headed to the shores of Lake Waconia as the sun set over the water, shining through the trees. After getting seriously injured in a snowmobile racing accident just under a year ago, I was amazed at Matt's recovery and ability to laugh! We ended the evening with one colorful sunset - icing on the cake of this amazing session!

A fresh coating of snow on the last Saturday in October was finally Dax & Emily's wedding day! This couple opted for a small, intimate ceremony attended by their closest family and friends which I loved. Emily picked out the cutest details for their big day, from her sparkly black Steve Madden's to her wedding gown, complete with pockets! The couple's wedding rings are incredibly unique - made from a special block of wood. The contrast of the bright colorful flowers juxtaposed with black and white stripes was striking. All of the nieces and nephews wore a variety of Converse - the couple's favorite shoes! After getting ready at the hotel, Emily and her girls (Lou & Kelly) headed to Katherine Abbott Park for the ceremony where Dax was waiting! The ceremony, hosted by the couple's mailman, was full of happy tears and laughs, especially when Emily made sure to jam Dax's ring on his finger! Following the first kiss, the couple was congratulated outside by their guests. The snow sprinkled grass was the perfect backdrop for a variety of family photos with the newlyweds. It was so awesome that the guests also wore coordinating colors and patterns - it made for some wonderful photos. I took the bride and groom down a path of the park for some portraits of them together in their newly married joy. The mix of fall colors and and snow was so fun to capture. These two were troopers in the chilly weather! Once we had enough of the cold, we headed back to the park shelter for dinner and cake. What an awesome day to celebrate these two! Congratulations, Dax & Emily!

A mid-October day at Bruentrup Heritage Farm in Maplewood, MN was the perfect backdrop for Chris and Anne to become husband & wife. Arriving to sunshine, the bride and her bridesmaids were in the farmhouse getting all dolled up and sipping on some bubbly. Meanwhile, Chris and his groomsmen got ready and cracked some jokes in the basement of the barn. I loved all of Anne's details for the day - from the sparkly Swavorski crystal earrings, to her bright bouquet, and all the way down to the adorable cowgirl boots she adores. The inside of both Chris & Anne's wedding rings include an inscription and each other's birthstones; does it get much sweeter than that? After Anne slipped into her ball gown from Posh Bridal with just the right amount of poof, it was time for the first look out in front of the big red barn! These two were so excited to see each other - and good thing we had tissues ready. While taking portraits of the couple, the sun even peeked out! Of course, Chris & Anne's three pups also had to get in on some photos, the ladies with flowers and gentleman Cashius with a little bow tie. The bridesmaids and groomsmen then joined us for some group photos, along with the adorable flower girl and ring bearer who had a blast taking part in the festivities. We snuck in a few family portraits before it really started to rain. Thankful for good timing! Then it was off to the barn for the beautiful wedding ceremony with the twinkle light backdrop. Anne looked stunning walking down the aisle to her groom! There were lots of laughs shared when Chris dropped Anne's ring before placing it on her finger. After the I Do's, I whisked the newlyweds off for a few "just married" photos under the cover of the farmhouse porch while the barn got switched to the reception set up. We sat down to a wonderful meal of smoked brisket and pulled pork, made by none other than the groom! It was delicious! The speeches from the best man and maid of honor were heartful and touching, along with a speech by Chris's dad who looked at Anne and announced, "Finally!" Chef Chris then decided it was time to get his bride a fresh glass of champagne by opening the bottle of bubbly with a knife! The cork of that bottle made for a unique ring photo. Then it was time to dance the night away under the twinkle lights in the barn. Congratulations, Chris & Anne! Cheers to love, laughter, and happily ever after!
