last light painting wedding portrait of 2012

My last light painting wedding portrait I created in 2012. It was a good one too! During their reception at Somerby Golf Club, the storms were moving in and bringing winds and showers in the area. However, a nice little gap between rain allowed us to create something beautiful and magical.

Maria & Mark – a Norskedalen wedding

If you were able to plan the wedding of your dreams, what would it include? Where would you hold the wedding? What kind of decorations would you use? How would you make the guest’s experience one that they would remember? With the help & planning from Weddings By Nancy, Maria & Mark’s wedding provided this and so much more.

Now don’t get me wrong. A wedding is not just about the details. The most important part of any wedding is the love that two people share. There was no shortage of love between Maria & Mark. The emotion was powerful as they saw each other for the first time. That emotion was evident as the ceremony started. Now combine that love with the love from family & friends. Plenty of happy tears were shared by many present.

Ashley & Chris – Winona, MN wedding

For most, waking up to rain on a Saturday morning would normally mean rescheduling some outdoor activities that you may have had planned. When it’s your wedding day, it could cause some unwanted anxiety – even though it’s been said that rain on your wedding day is good luck, no one really wants it to rain on your wedding day.

Megan & Brian – Des Moines, IA wedding

It was a full 15-hour day being surrounded by family & friends, laughter & tears, sunshine & some rain, but most obvious of all – love. I truly felt like I was part of the family. Granted, it wasn’t the first time I’ve met/seen most of the family as I first met Megan & Brian at her brother’s wedding in 2009. Continue reading and to see their wedding photos

Megan, the bride. A bridal portrait.

Before seeing the groom for the first time on their wedding day, we took a few moments for some quick portraits after her mom & sister helped her with the dress. What do you think of this bridal portrait? I think she looks ready for a wedding, don’t you??

Jennifer & Josh | Winona, Minnesota wedding

Life works in mysterious ways sometimes. The reason I say this is because you’ll never know what the future may bring or who’ll you meet. Again.

Now bare with me as I feel I have to tell this little story & the reason I say this is because years ago, as a child, I used to visit & stay with my grandparents during my summer vacation in a small town of Hudson, IA. It was like having a second home with another whole group of childhood friends. Granted now with Facebook, I can chat & see what those old friends are up to and see how their lives have changed since we were kids running around Hudson. I have so many great memories from that time in my life. It was amazing. Continue to see photos from their wedding Read More

Kim & Allen | Wabasha, Minnesota wedding

I think it’s truly a beautiful sight when you can watch someone look at the person that they love and you can feel that love & emotion. This is what I felt every time Kim & Allen looked at each other on their wedding day.

Now at the same time, it’s kind of funny when you shoot a high school friend’s wedding. Especially when you’ve shared a number of good times with each other. And what’s even better, is the guest list included some of those other high school friends who helped make those good times even better. You see, I’ve known Allen for years and his Best Man was my childhood neighbor and needless to say – we’ve had our fun in our day. To make it even better, Kim’s sisters and friends are just as goofy as our friends were/are. It’s literally a perfect match.

Mix all of this with a day that started pretty dreary, yet come the time of the wedding, the clouds parted and the sun shined bright the rest of their wedding day. Add in loving family & friends to help you celebrate and you’ve got one beautiful wedding. Continue for Kim & Allen’s wedding photos
