Robin & Jerad | Winona, Minnesota wedding

As a wedding photographer, it’s always great to see & work with familiar faces. Robin was a bridesmaid at Alison & Chris’s wedding I covered last year. This time, the tables were turned as Alison was bridesmaid for Robin. I also know a number of their friends as most of them enjoy the river as I do. These two enjoy the river so much, we headed out there by boat for their engagement photos on the Mississippi River!

Their wedding day was picture perfect. Beautiful weather, a gorgeous ceremony venue at the Chapel of Saint Mary of the Angels, great bridal party along with many loving family & friends to help them celebrate their marriage. Such nice people to be around and all of them were so happy. It seemed that you could sit down with any one of them and have a conversation for hours – like you knew each other for years. To top that off, the wedding partybooth was rocking with everyone having a blast! You couldn’t have asked for a better day for two wonderful people who are madly in love…

Without further ado – the wedding photos of Robin & Jerad!

Emmy & Kevin | Winona, Minnesota wedding

It’s truly an amazing feeling when you feel loved. As a parent myself, I get to feel the love from my own children. For Emmy & Kevin, I know that they get to enjoy that same feeling too. As a wedding photographer, I get to witness this love of others. Not just between the bride & groom, but their friends, family & sometimes their children too. To see a gathering of people, some from long distances, hear the stories shared and spend a day together celebrating the love of two people – it’s well, amazing.

On the day of their wedding, there was plenty of love to go around. See for yourself…

Katie & Adam | Minnesota wedding photographer

For my fourth wedding of August on the 15th, I stayed close to home with a wedding in Goodview and the reception at St. Mary’s University in Winona, MN. It was nice to have a wedding in town as within just a few days, I’d be heading to the opposite end of Minnesota for my wedding on the North Shore in Two Harbors.

The one thing that stood out for me with Katie & Adam, was their constant smiling when next to each other. When I see a smiling face, it just lifts my spirits. When I smile at someone else, hopefully it does the same. With these two it was almost contagious. It just seemed that everyone was smiling right along with them. Of course, some people just love to have a good time and I think that had a lot to do with this wedding. Fun group of people – for sure!!!
