Oh Amanda and Jeffrey. You two are PERFECT for each other. Young, in love, and ready to tackle the world. You remind me a lot of your (Amanda’s) parents. May your love be just like theirs.
I am so looking forward to your June wedding.
It was a coolish day in late October. Justine and Dylan decided that they wanted their engagement photos taken at the site of their wedding. As we walked all around the site, it didn’t take me long to figure out just how perfect these two people were for each other.
Justine and Dylan, I am SO excited for your wedding in June. Mostly excited that I get to witness you both start this new chapter in your lives. Thank you for choosing to share it with me.
It is no lie that this winter has been a tad chilly. Ok, really chilly. Today was 50 degrees. The sun was warm. Water is everywhere around the farm. EVERYWHERE.
While I was watching Gertie Lu play in the water, I just want to remind everyone to enjoy every moment with your loved ones. No matter what. Hold them close to your heart. Capture real life. Dirty or clean. Enjoy this beautiful ride we are on. Splash through deep puddles. Laugh lots. Always be kind. Live in the moment. Snap a picture of two. Live fearlessly.
There is just something about second shooting. No pressure. It is a time for me to relax and really try to step out of my comfort zone and capture images from a different perspective. Each photographer I get to work with I learn something new. Ananda was no different. She was photographing this fantastic wedding as a destination wedding. How perfect and beautiful. A destination wedding in Northern Minnesota. I jumped at the opportunity to help her.
I don’t know much, but I’ll tell you what I do know. The bride (Elizabeth) is from Minnesota. She and her Groom (Joseph) decided to use her family’s cabin (which has been in her family for 75 years) as the starting place. The actual ceremony and reception took place at Appledoorn’s resort. Beautiful. Not to mention, Elizabeth wore her Grandmother’s dress. It was fantastic.
Thank you Ananda for asking me to help you. It was a fantastic day.
I’ve said it a million times before, but I just love weddings. I love everything about them. The excitement, the craziness, the raw emotions. This wedding was no different. Full of raw emotion that speaks straight to my heart.
What a great day it was. Thank you so much Heather & Mikey for sharing it with us. We love you guys.
