John & Emily

Emily and I met early on in the engagement and I can honestly remember breathing a sigh of content after she walked out the door. We had so much fun just sitting and chatting about life, the wedding, work, and of course John - who was back in Texas with...

Tony & Bethany

Today was a happy one indeed. Tony & Bethany's love story is epic. Bethany remembers seeing an unassuming Tony walking the halls of her high school. I couldn't help but wonder if she could have imagined then the two of them at the altar one day. Today, as Bethany gazed...

Joe & Alaina

There are always a few people in this world that you think, “Yep, I am sure glad I met them.” Joe & Alaina are definitely part of that group for us. Alaina is so very intentional with all of her relationships. At first, we thought we might just be her...

Austin & Leila

Last year, as I was navigating the drive in another Minnesota snow storm, my cellphone rings. I answer, as I was stuck in traffic anyway, and on the other end of the conversation is Austin, calling from Texas. He says to me, "We love your work and how you tell...

Phil & Heather

Philip & Heather are one of those couples that when we met them, it was hard to tell they weren't already married. These two have such a mature and confident love for one another. They just love life to its fullest and soak in every moment. Well, of course, there...

Brandon & Cheyenne

The long-awaited day finally arrived, and our excitement to experience this day with Cheyenne & Brandon grew with each passing day. Cheyenne and I traveled to Florida along with other media students from Crown College. And it was on this trip that Cheyenne met Brandon. They fell head over heels,...

Jake & Ellyn

Well, golly. These two are as adorable and as genuine as they come. Jake has a rare gift for making you feel like you are the only person on the planet when he talks with you, and that gift is overflowing for his now bride, Ellyn. Jake knew exactly what...

John & Linda

Our moms are BFFs and so for the last 20 years, I have gotten to know Linda really well. Hearing bits and pieces from my mom about Linda with a new boyfriend and then eventually learning Linda was engaged, there was just no way I was going to miss out...

Derek & Emily

After shooting my cousin's wedding with Janelle Elise Photography the previous summer, I was so glad that I could return the favor for Emily's wedding. As Emily's closest cousin, Janelle had double-duty on the wedding day…bridesmaid AND photographer! We were both treated to the extra adrenaline-boost that day when we...

Nate & Laura

We first met Nate & Laura at a coffee shop in Maple Grove. Our similar, nerdy love for Lord of the Rings gave us plenty to talk about. We finally got around to the wedding details and once we did we could see how excited these two were to enjoy...
