Markus and Michawn — Wedding

Michawn and Markus were married at the Lakewood Memorial Chapel in Minneapolis. The chapel was so amazingly beautiful, and the grounds were so lovely. It was such a pleasure photographing there, and great fun photographing Markus and Michawn (and their awesome kiddos!).

Thanks, guys! Congratulations!

Love the pictures. Beatiful Bride! The red shoes are fantastic, the kids adorable and Mark’s “Mary Poppins” pose priceless.

Sarah and Bryan

Sarah and Bryan’s ceremony and reception were held at the McNamara Alumni Center in Minneapolis. What a gorgeous venue! One of our favorite details of the day was the lovely pairing of yellow and gray (including yellow/gray argyle socks for the groomsmen!). We really enjoyed photographing these guys… they are obviously very much in love and a fantastic couple.

Congrats, Sarah and Bryan!


Jer and Steph — Wedding

We had the absolute pleasure of photographing my cousin Jer and his beautiful wife Stephanie’s wedding in Prince Edward Island a few weeks ago. Not only was it special to be able to witness the two of them joining lives, it was amazing to photograph. Stephanie was a gorgeous bride and is a wonderful person. We are SO happy she is part of our family.

The wedding celebration really began the day before the wedding when Steph’s dad Steve challenged Jer to a race. You see, back when Jer asked Steve if he could marry his lovely daughter, Steve had a few stipulations. One of the main things Jer had to accomplish was to race Steve for the right to marry his daughter. Somehow Jer managed to put race day off until the day before the wedding and as luck would have it, Jer pulled ahead in the last leg of the 3K race.:


We knew right then and there that the following day would be awesome fun, because we were surrounded by fun people full of great humor. And it was. The day was gorgeous and full of surprises (including a game of “Survivor, Prince Edward Island Edition” at the reception, where Jer had to complete a challenge in order to stop himself from being “kicked off the island”). Such great fun. We were also enamored with the beauty of the Island, the hospitality of the people who live there, and the many, many photo opportunities we encountered.

One more thing. It’s always amazing to photograph family and when we do, we get to experience things from an inside perspective.  It is a perfect reminder to us of what makes a wedding great: the beautiful connection of two lives and their families and the love and joy that go into a wedding day. We are so fortunate to be able to do what we do!

Congratulations, Jer and Steph! We love you guys and are so happy we could be there for your awesome day.

Wendy and Matt — Wedding

Wendy and Matt’s wedding and reception were at Brackett’s Crossing in Lakeville. It was a beautiful, warm day in the sun. Wendy and Matt are so in love and were awesome to photograph. One unique and fun part of the day was when the wedding party made their entrance into the reception riding on Razor scooters. So fun!

Congrats, Wendy and Matt!! 🙂
