Chekelea + Todd’s Mad Men Engagement Session

October 29th, 2012

My youngest cousin Todd is getting married next June to an amazing woman, and I couldn’t be more excited to have Chekelea as a cousin-in-law. They are both big Mad Men fans and wanted to capture that in their engagement session, so we spent an hour in one of Minneapolis’ most swanky and 60’s-esque estaurants, Jax Cafe. Chek+Todd, I cannot wait for your June wedding – and I hope you love these images.


An Evening With My Girls

October 25th, 2012

It’s morning in Mexico – the sun is shining and the humidity is climbing. We’re off to the Crococun Zoo today, and then the beach. The girls will have their first chance to build sandcastles and taste the salty sea air. We’re having a blast, thus far – and I thought I’d share a few images I managed to snap just before dinner last night, as the sun set over Puerto Morelos.


Darielle + Isaac Stillwater Engagement

October 23rd, 2012

I met Darielle in January at her friend Kate’s wedding. We hit it off and I was instantly smitten with her charm and warm heart. When she contacted me a few weeks ago to tell me that she had just gotten engaged I couldn’t help but let out squeal and I’m soooooo excited for her wedding next April. Last weekend, I spent the afternoon with her and (her now fiancĂ©!!) Isaac in one of my favorite parts of Minnesota. They are ridiculously cute together and the way they look at each other (when they think no one else is looking) is the most perfect thing on the planet. (And okay, like me, they also happen to think coffee is a food group.) What can I say? These two were MFEO. (Made for each other.)
