I was adding finishing touches to this gorgeous wedding session that I shot in March at the St.James Hotel in Red Wing, MN and found this gem. The moment I saw it I giggled to myself because it brought me right back to that day, to that moment I clicked the button on my camera. I smiled as I thought back…
I was trying to figure out how in the world do I fix that curtain way up there. Stand on a chair? No… its not high enough. Stand on a table? No….. its still not high enough. So the monkey in me was like, “should I jump up there? But what if I fall and break a wrist? I won’t be able to shoot this wedding then!” Normally, I don’t get scared to do stuff like that but do you see how small that ledge is?!
All of a sudden, one of her bridesmaids says “watch out, I got this!” She then proceeds to kick off her slippers and shimmies her way up there like a pro! Seriously, I love moments like this! One, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this shot of her in mid motion going to fix the curtain. She did it with such elegance and grace (two things I wouldn’t have had jumping). And Two. We got the perfect dress shot with out me having to Photoshop the curtains. Win win for everyone!
I just had to share that little fun tid-bit of a behind the scene at this fabulous wedding!
Congratulations again to Chris and Katie!

Love this. This is very typical of my friend. She goes the extra mile in everything. She made my wedding day go perfect, and so did you. I recommend you to everyone. Brides, engaged couples and families. You did an AMAZING job! I can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures. Thank you again for capturing our big day. I can’t wait for you to shoot our future babies!
