The cold air washed over them under the grey sky that blanketed the city. As they walked over to the rock that sat on the bluff overlooking Duluth, they threw their arms in the air in celebration and exclaimed, “We’re king of the world!” The joy was starting to soak in. It had finally happened. […]

When you have a brewery, one distillery, two wineries and one winery/brewery within 5 minutes of your house, drinking local is not only attainable but also really convenient. I was so excited to visit the wineries when we first moved to Waconia. We bought a wine passport and went around to all of the local […]

My tires crunched over the gravel road as I pulled up to the picturesque white house on top of the hill at the end of the dirt road. As I pulled into the driveway, I saw a painted sign reading “Domjahn Farms” on one of the buildings. As I opened the car door in front […]

When I shot Justin and Anne’s wedding last year, Anne mentioned that her cousin Sara was getting married in 2018 in Stillwater and was looking for a photographer. I was super excited because I loved Justin and Anne and got excited about shooting another wedding for their friends and family. Stillwater also happens to be […]

With the hazy sun setting, the waves crashing on the shore and boaters cruising past, Nick and Logan said their vows at the cabin they have been restoring together all summer. Their intimate, lakeside wedding had a casual, relaxed vibe and amazing food thanks to Quince Catering. My favorite kind of wedding! Since they invited […]

The wet, shivering masses of people crowded into the cramped gift shop, trying to find warmer clothing to buy and waiting out the storm so they could get back to the trails. 3,000 feet below us was the spot where Tony proposed to Becca and she happily said yes to spending the rest of her […]

  Light rain drizzled over the mountains into the forest making the green trees pop beautifully against the blue silhouettes of the mountains. The raindrops softly hit the wooden deck as the sounds of a saw cutting through a log echoed throughout the quiet valley. Asher and Melanie’s closest family and friends sat on the wooden […]

  What perks are there to eloping or having an intimate wedding rather than going the traditional route? When I speak with couples considering an elopement or intimate wedding, they’re all saying the same thing: They’re looking for a small, simple ceremony that isn’t going to cost an immense amount. But they’re still wanting their […]

Your dogs are a huge part of your life and family. They’re your baby and you take them with you hiking and on camping trips and all of your adventures. Why would you want to leave them behind on your wedding day? It can be difficult to know which parts of the day to include […]

Max and Patra are amazing. Seriously. They are fun, free-spirited, joyful and so incredibly in love- all of the things that I love most about my Lumos Couples. 

Larry and Ashley spent a gorgeous summer day at Voyageur Environmental Center in Mound, MN starting their marriage adventure.

Despite the twists and turns, Chris and Christie’s wedding day was one of my favorites of the summer. They got married on their friend’s polo ranch in Watertown. It was one of my favorite venues I’ve ever shot at,

Tim & Katie graciously modeled for me for an adventure session. They have been married for a couple years now and their joy and love is contagious. They love camping, hiking and the outdoors so we made that the theme of the session. Enjoy!

The hallways are crowded- full of energetic preteens navigating new friendships, crushes, homework, body odor and all of the awkward goodness that comes along with middle school. This is where David and Linnea met on October 1, 2002 and struck up a friendship.

I looked longingly out my office window at the blue sky and the white passing clouds wanting nothing more than be outside in the sunshine. I tried not to pay too much attention to the clock that was taking forever to hit 6. The time when I would be out on the river with my camera adventuring with an awesome couple.

Mitch and Becca met in September two years ago at Becca’s uncle’s party. Mitch is friends with Becca’s uncle who informed him that he had an awesome niece who liked guns and has a lot in common with Mitch. Without thinking much of it and certainly not planning on meeting his future wife and her […]

Bradyn & Nikki have spent many falls in apple orchards, hanging out with their families so an orchard was a perfect spot for their Adventure Session. And they hit the fall color jackpot! The forest of solid yellow made my heart so happy!  The night was soooooo cold but they were awesome about it and […]

After dating for a little bit in high school, Kenny and Kelsey went their separate ways as people often do. But a couple years later when they happened to reconnect, they knew there was still a spark there. As Kenny and Kelsey got close again, Kenny also bonded with Kelsey’s son Ayden which made Kelsey […]

I laced up my hiking boats, stepped out of the tent and wandered through the sunlit campground until I heard the sounds of rushing water. I grabbed on to tree roots for stability as I climbed down the rocky enbankment and found a cozy spot on a perfectly shaped rock, backrest and all. I dipped […]

Plan A I eagerly ran out to the mailbox to check if today was the day it finally arrived. There it was. My first copy of CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) Magazine. I glanced down at the cover and gasped. I couldn’t believe it! My two favorite artists were on the cover at the same time! […]
