Walking Around a Winter Wonder Land | Katelyn + Alex

After several tries to get snow we finally ended up with a fantastic day to walk around in a wintery wonderland.  Katelyn and Alex were such a blast to spend the afternoon with and I don’t think we had a single serious moment… well except the point in which I thought we were going to be staring in our very own episode of I Shouldn’t Be Alive.  I might also add that Alex disapproved of stealing Katelyn’s Mother’s vintage teal chair.  I look forward to seeing you guys at your much warmer May wedding.  Congratulations to both of you.

Sparks fly at this wedding

New Berlin Hills Golf Course was the perfect setting for this beautiful late fall wedding.  Not only was it an unseasonably warm and beautiful November day in Wisconsin, but it was also just down the road from the Brides  family home.  Later in the night we let the sparks fly for some fun long exposure sparkler shots.  Note to future bride who want to use sparklers… bring lots of them and a good lighter or maybe even a blow torch.  I had such a great time meeting both of your families as well as seeing  Katie and Jason who’s wedding I photographed 5 years ago.  congratulations guys!

Track and Field Senior PhotographySenior Photos in OxBow Park Byron Minnesota

Byron’s Track and Cross Country star and Captain Alex. Sweat shirts and letterman jackets in 100 degree weather, you can tell a little heat doesn’t bother him. As a matter of fact I think he went for a run right after the photos. It was great getting to meet Alex and his family, and good luck as your start your senior year and head into your college running career.

Grace Free Church Stewartville MN Wedding | Josh + Stacy

Wedding Photographer at Minnesota Park

 I was a bit worried while I was loading up my jeep in a total down pour just hours before Stacy and Josh’s wedding.  I was disappointed because we had set aside plenty of time to spend at the park taking fun photos.  No long after arriving the sky opened up to leave us with a beautiful day after all.  I guess they say its good luck for it to rain on your wedding day. I had such a great time with everyone and I really hope you enjoy your wedding photos for years to come.

Whitney and Gabe’s wedding was at the rustic Root Prairie Church in the heart of the minnesota bluff country.  A wet afternoon made for some more intimate photographs in the quaint shops in down town Lanesboro Minnesota.  These guys needed every inch of the Lanesboro Community center for all their guests.  The Live band Trouble Shooter was a blast and kept the party going all night.  You could not have asked for a nicer wedding celebration.  Congratulations guys!  Be sure to show some love and leave a comment below.
