Joe + Kaylee | Hopper Danley Wedding | Grand Forks Wedding Photographer

From the onset of meeting Kaylee and Joe, I knew this day would be a special one.  And that is not only due to the fact that all of my pre wedding meetings with Kaylee ended up being just an awesome coffee date full of fun conversation, with a little business thrown in.One of the aspects I enjoy most of joining couples on the incomparably special day of their wedding, is to watch and be a small part of experiencing the family dynamics.  From the minute I walked into Kaylee’s hotel room, it was very clear that she was surrounded by people who loved her and were completely FOR her.  Kaylee celebrated her wedding day without the physical presence of her mom, who she lost when she was very young, BUT, her day was filled with precious details and momentos dedicated to her momma.  From the beautiful embroidary right on her wedding gown, to her handmade garder made from her mother’s wedding dress, to wearing her mother’s wedding ring throughout the day- the dedication to making her mother a special part of the day was very clear.  As we discussed our wedding schedule and checklist, Kaylee made it abundantly clear how very special her aunts were to her and to make sure we capture the special relationship she has with them.  And from a photographers perspective, the love that Tammy and Jodi have for Kaylee is so abundant and overflowing that all we had to do was show up with camera in hand.  Thank you Joe for allowing Erin to come hang out with you guys pre-wedding.  The love you have for Hunter and for Kaylee is unquestionable.

The joining of Kaylee and Joe was not only the beginning of oneness with these two individuals, but of a family.  And so, I was especially blessed to have an opportunity to capture a special first look with Kaylee and Joe’s (INCREDIBLY WELL MANNERED) and obviously handsome son, Hunter.

Thank you Joe, Kaylee, to your awesome wedding party and to the Henruds and Bushys for allowing Erin and I to share your day with you.  From beginning to end, it was our pleasure.

Caleb + Chie | 8.12.16 | Helena, Montana Wedding Photographer

“Hello, person that I don’t know.”

Says Caleb as he walks into the dining room he shared with roommates, to see a stunning young lady sitting at his table.  And so began what I’m sure will be a life of beautiful adventure!

We started the day at Caleb’s parents beautiful home overlooking the picturesque Helena Valley, with an intimate ceremony atop an incredible Montana hillside.  With just enough wind to keep you cool, and just enough sun to keep you warm, we couldn’t have asked for nicer weather or more breathtaking surroundings to celebrate the day with this sweet couple and their equally sweet and UP for ANYTHING bridal party!

Thank you Caleb and Chie, and thank you to the Andersen and Roberts family for sharing your special day with me. It has truly been my pleasure.

Matthew + Katie | 7.9.16 | Grand Forks Wedding Photographer

What a great way to spend a Saturday!

Katie and Matthew’s wedding was brimming with awesome from beginning to end. We started our day with a lovely ceremony at the beautiful St. John’s Catholic Church in Thompson, ND. From there, we enjoyed a super fun limo ride to University Park in Grand Forks for some more shots of this uber fun bridal party–finishing literally SECONDS before the rain came! And then off to a beautiful reception at the Ramada Inn. From a couple that is so clearly and passionately in love to a bridal party that was so much fun to work with and photograph, all the way to an awesomely fun & PACKED dance floor ALL NIGHT- my job couldn’t have been more enjoyable!

Thank you Katie and Matthew, and thank you to the Morgans and the Hillestads for sharing your special day with me.

Beth + Jake | Devils Lake Wedding Photographer| Lakewood Bible Camp

From the very first meeting with Beth and Jake, I could tell this wedding day would be something special.  The thing Beth emphasized to me most was’–emotion!  From the moment we arrived her excitement was abundant and infectious.  If I were to choose on word for this day, it would be: JOY.  The joy of a mother and father giving away their only daughter, the joy of the father of the bride joining in marriage his beautiful girl to the man God hand picked for her.  The joy of two young people so in love with the Lord and eachother, and their anticipation of what God will do with them as One.  Thank you Beth and Jake for sharing your special day with us!

Kit + Brennan | Grand Forks Wedding Photographer

I could not have asked for a sweeter couple or more wonderful families to have spent a chilly Saturday with.  I met Kit and Brennan over Caribou coffee about 6 months before the wedding- and I knew that day that this wedding would be something extra special.  These two young people are so clearly in love- with each other, and with the Lord they both follow so whole heartedly.   This was so clear in the ceremony, in the reception, and with the friends they chose to surround themselves with.  Much attention was paid to all of the lovely details to make this winter wedding spectacularly beautiful- but even more was paid to reflecting their relationships with the Lord and their desire to honor Him with their lives as One.  I was blessed to photograph their closest friends and family share in the committing of their lives to one another, and lay hands on this wonderful young couple to pray for the blessing and guidance of the Lord over their new life.

Kit and Brennan- I hope the Bahamas was AWESOME and I will be seeing you both soon!

And no wedding post would be complete without much deserved credit to my second photographer Erin of Soulshine Photography!
