Family Fall session, Minneapolis, MN

What can I say about this beautiful family that these AMAZING images don’t already say?! I have been taking Torrie’s family pictures for a couple years now and every time I see them they are always really fun, go with the flow and ready to rock the entire photo session. Seriously this family cannot take a bad picture, ever! This sweet girl has such an infectious smile!

The light this evening was to die for, the golden hour definitely was on our side! The golden hour, in photography language, occurs when the sun is low in the sky, but not quite setting. At this time, the intensity of the direct light is reduced and everything in front of it look illuminated. It really created some amazing light, for some perfect shots! So gorgeous!

I cannot wait until our next session!!!

Lauren + Casey’s Wedding! ~ Bracketts Crossing Country Club – Lakeville, MN

Lauren got my information from another one of my clients, another bride actually! She was so excited to work with me and I was equally excited to work with her. Lauren and Casey live in Florida but both grew up here in Hastings, MN. Because of the distance, I never got the pleasure of meeting Lauren in person before her big day; but just from talking to her on the phone the couple times I did, I learned so much about her from just by her voice. Lauren was super bubbly, extremely out going, the-glass-is-always-half-full type of gal. She seemed like someone that always has a smile on her face and love to put a smile on others faces as well. I could just tell all that from her voice!
When we finally met up together on the big day I was totally right! She is super sweet and one of the kindest women you’ll ever meet. Her smile is contagious. No wonder Casey put a ring on it! Their day started a little cloudy, which was great for pictures in that big open area, some people think that clouds will ruin a day, but I see the beauty in them, so I take full advantage! Then, like clockwork, the clouds rolled out- what you read next REALLY happened, I know it sounds unreal, but it happened: As Lauren walked down the isle the clouds moved aside and the bright, shining sun came out! I believe that God was shining down on these two that day and gave her that sunshine as a blessing. It was definitely meant to be. The sun ONLY came out for their ceremony then peaked back behind the clouds. Her whole day was just that amazing and I am so grateful Lauren and Casey trusted me to capture their big day.
Congrats again and thank you, I hope when you come back to visit, I get to see you too!

Love her wedding? Here is who she chose for her big day!
