The Bute Family // Prior Lake, Minnesota

An evening pontoon ride, two curious ducks, a mini fishing session and some sunset beach playtime. Uhhh, yeah. The perfect family date. I was thrilled to be invited along and capture these four as a family. Not to mention receiving multiple bonus hugs from Owen, and big cheesin' smiles from DARLING little Emma. 


Time stands still best

in moments that look

suspiciously like

ordinary life.


David and Sarah have been such a huge support in my photography business since day one. Encouraging clients are truly what help keep small businesses afloat these days, and I have so much gratitude for this family.


Thank you Bute's! I always love spending time with all of you and am looking forward to seeing you again soon! 

Ryan + Ashley // A Romantic Country Wedding in Hay Creek, Minnesota

There was a cool breeze blowing through the tall grass the morning of Ryan and Ashley's wedding day. The girls were inside, excitedly getting into their plum dresses while the boys were cracking jokes and buttoning their suits. The windows were open, the sun shining bright and smiling faces surrounded family and friends inside the old white church. 

Just before the ceremony Ryan and Ashley quietly and without seeing each other, joined hands in a short and sweet prayer behind the church. 

The outdoor reception was hosted by the Kassen family on their lush farm property tucked away in the rolling hills of Goodhue, MN.

I loved all of the intricate details they put into their decor! 

Their sunset Bride & Groom session was one of the most memorable and gorgeous sessions ever!! Can you say, book cover!? Goodness...

The evening gently turned to yard games, drinks, laughter and children playing. 

It was the perfect ending to a love=filled wondrous day. 

Thanks for tuning in, friends!

Until next time :)
