Tom and Jessica get Hitched | MN Wedding Photographer

This weekend I had the pleasure of photographing an amazing unique union between 2 incredibly wonderful people. I headed up to the northwoods of MN Friday afternoon and when people talk about God's Country they must be talking about northern MN. It's just a beautiful place we can all call home!

I met up with Jessica in the late morning to photograph their beautiful day. She was so incredibly relaxed, she even did her own hair and makeup! She looked absolutely stunning and made a very beautiful bride!

Tom was equally handsome (and relaxed!).

I really love all the little details that make up a wedding day. From the rings to the centerpieces, everything that went into the day made Tom and Jessica's day one of a kind.

We spent a little time outdoors and I got to photograph the wonderful couple. They are so much in love, it's a fun thing to watch.

And then there was the ceremony. It was a loving and light-hearted event complete with good friends speaking to the couple, Tom's dad serenading us and a wonderful "ring warming" ceremony". Oh, and we can't forget the " I do's"!

Then they spent the rest of the evening celebrating with music, food, drinks and close friends and family!

It was a beautiful day and I feel incredibly honored to have been a part of it!

Babies, babies, babies... | MN Baby Photographer

Remember this little guy? Well, I got to see him again because he is now a big boy at 6 months old! He was such a smiley and happy guy last time and he performed just as well this time around too! He is so much fun to photograph with his milky baby skin and sparkly eyes!

I simply love toothless baby smiles. They make me happy!

He did not like this but it's cute anyway! Dad is a firefighter so we got to sneak over to the garage and hang with the trucks! What a lucky little fella!

And check out this beautiful family on a vintage firetruck! How cool!

Could he get any cuter?

Such a beautiful baby boy. His eyes are stunning!

Ah, baby butt in a bowl! I warned mom and dad that he would pee and that it would be ok. The second we put him in, sure enough, he tinkled! Baby boys, so predictable!

Thank you B family, it was wonderful to see you all again and I look forward to our next session!
