A Day in the Presence of Love

When I first started committing time to photography, my greatest joy was spent in the presence of young couples.  Seeing how they navigated the space between them, the gentle touches they shared and the glances between them told it all.

Recently, I was given the honor of being asked to photograph the wedding of two beautiful young people, one of whom was a photographer herself.  As we moved through their engagement session, I delighted in the opportunity to see not only the vibrancy of true love, but also the fun of youth and two personalities perfectly matched.  They are destined to live a very blessed life with joy, love and caring at every turn.

Please join me in wishing Madelyn and Logan a beautiful life together!

Mi by House of Nguyen

In what has become my third fashion photography collaboration with the ever talented Mimi Nguyen, I was delighted to work this designer and this dynamic team on her latest line soon to appear at Showroom in Minneapolis.  

Mi's work is easily recognizable for its wonderfully feminine and beautifully detailed style.  It showcases the beauty and shape of women, emphasizing a woman's grace, elegance and natural beauty.  (Check her out on facebook!)  If ever I had a fitness goal, it would be to actually wear one of her signature gowns!

Thank you to the team that brought this shoot so seamlessly and beautifully together!

A Visit From One of My Favorite Families

Over the years, I have been blessed to meet and know many families. Some I capture a simply moment in time, others I get the opportunity to work with them time and time again.  Recently, it was one such family who reached for me to capture the next senior in their family.  First, came Katherine... then came Tess.  Now... it is handsome Bill! 

With such a charming wit and Bill's bold blue eyes, it was a definitely a great way to spend the evening and a fun session all the way around!   Enjoy the rest of your senior year and good luck as you move forward in the adventure of your life!


Prom at the Sculpture Garden

This time of year is always about celebration.  Be it graduation, springtime or simply youth, May is a time of beauty and when prom is at hand you know you are going to see some beautiful people in beautiful locations.

Bloomington Kennedy's prom brought these gorgeous couples to Walker's Sculpture Garden in Minneapolis.  With personality and charm, these four teenagers were a delight to photograph and clearly well matched couples.  To Joselyn, Dylan, Adrian & Brianna - I hope your evening matched how gloriously you looked!
