Smiling dog

As a photographer, it’s great when variables just work for the best and my past engagement session was no different. While our last planned engagement session was rained/sleeted out, our backup date was absolutely perfect autumn weather. Top that off with a fun-loving couple who love the outdoors and their beautiful Golden Retriever, Lutsen. He was a happy, smiling dog.

Looking forward to the wedding next year!

Morgan – autumn high school senior portrait

One of the great things about living in the upper Midwest is the change of the seasons. The leaves that are still on the trees have a nice tone to them, however they won’t last much longer. Here’s a recent senior portrait – Morgan.

Megan & Nick | Town & Country Club wedding in St. Paul, Minnesota

There was so many wonderful things going on once the autumn season finally settled in here in our area. The weather was outstanding and made for some great colors & views of the trees & leaves along rolling bluffs along the Mississippi River. I personally think it would be hard to leave the area, even though I usually can’t stand the winter months. Snow & cold temps just are not for me…

Sometimes that new adventure will take you to new places. Away from home. That’s what brings me to Megan & Nick. Continue reading and to see their wedding photos

Jennifer & Chris | Alma, Wisconsin outdoor wedding

My last wedding of September took place in Alma, Wisconsin. Everything seemed to fall into place for Jennifer & Chris considering it had rained and rained and rained some more earlier in the week, which caused lots of flooding in many nearby communities along the Mississippi River valley.

However, on this day, the bad weather held off and made for a perfect autumn day to have an outdoor wedding.

Jennifer spent the morning getting ready with a few of her relatives at the Tritsch House in Alma. A few images from there…

Part 1 | July & Randy | Hutchinson, MN wedding

The signs of Autumn were apparent for July & Randy’s wedding in Hutchinson, Minnesota. The leaves were changing. There was a brisk breeze in the air. The downtown was buzzing from a local art & food festival. Meanwhile, at Peace Lutheran Church, there was the anticipation of a wedding…

As I arrived at the church, July had a room to herself and her bridesmaids. Bridesmaids getting hair done and makeup applied as July was getting ready to see Randy for the first time. Even the University of Minnesota garter matched the autumn theme…
