Minnesota Wedding Photographer | Scott and Andrea | White Bear Lake Wedding

I’ve got a long list of weddings and sessions to blog! I just finished up my final wedding of the year so I thought i’d re-start there and work my way backwards!


First up, Scott and Andrea.

Oh my gosh, what a day! For me this wedding was extra meaningful simply because I’ve known Scott for most of his life. We moved in next door to the Carlson crew when I was six and for the the greater part of my childhood and teenage years the Duffeys and Carlsons were best buds. To watch Scott stand next to the love of his life, Andrea, and promise his forever was something extra special. These two together are magic, they each bring such strong and bright personalities to the table and yet balance each other in the most perfect ying-yangy kind of way.

Scott and Andrea, I am wishing you nothing but happiness and based on how you tackled your wedding day, I don’t think you’ll have any issues there.

Norskedalen Nature and Heritage Center Wedding // Matt and Jess

Alright folks, starting my wedding season off with a blog post that i'm THE MOST excited to share. Jessica and Matt were married under the hot sun (followed by rattling thunderstorms) on a June afternoon in southwestern Wisconsin at a magical place called Norskedalen. You may remember them from a blog post I shared last year when we traipsed through South Minneapolis to take their engagement photos (click here to see that!). These two met in Thailand while living abroad, Matt is from Massachusetts and Jess is from near La Crosse so their wedding was the most glorious mash up of East Coast meets Midwest. 

Wishing you all the happiness in the world, Matt and Jess!
