Jake and Cassie’s wedding day Savage, MN

As I sat down to blog about this couple and this wedding, the only thing that came to mind was that these two are made for each other, meant for each other, so in love with each other. That is what this couple is and more, but its one of those things that is really hard to describe, so I took pictures of it instead! I feel like they look like they are the only two people in the world when they look into each others eyes. I love when couples are open to doing funny poses, and out-of-the-norm but also really like the traditional shots too. Cassie, I am a huge fan of the blue shoes! That pop of color is so exciting, different and worked so well with this wedding! I am so glad I was able to capture Cassie dancing with her Father-In-Law. He told me he had to dance with the bride, so grabbed his sombrero and went to dance with her…So hilarious! (Check it out below!) The kiddos did such a great job smiling and making funny faces!

Jake is in active duty military and was transferred to Texas, they moved just after their wedding! Thank you to you Jake, your family and all of those people who serve our country. It is always an honor to meet those who put our lives and country before their own. Again, I really appreciate all that you do!

This was such a beautiful wedding, your photos turned out amazing (despite the crazy wind!) and I hope that you cherish them for many many years to come!

Behind the Scenes, Wedding Style ~ Red Wing, MN

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!
