We enjoyed shooting this wedding so much. There could not be two more easy-going, loving, and kind-hearted people in South Dakota. They wanted a wedding that celebrated not only their union, but also their communities and families that brought them to the place they are now. They certainly accomplished what they set out for and more. The day began with each of them getting ready with their favorite people and sharing some champagne, after which they headed out to Strawbale Winery for photos and to prep for the ceremony.  Their ceremony was heartfelt and accompanied by a beautiful string quartet and lemonade.  Afterward they headed over to the stylish Icon lounge for their reception.  On arrival every guest took a Polaroid photo of themselves to paste into a guest book; definitely one of the sweetest and most creative guest book ideas we’ve seen! It was a great day. Molly and Mark, we’re so happy for you both, Congratulations!

We knew a few things going into their wedding; primarily that they were going for a fun and laid back celebration on the water that focused on the love and support from their friends and family – and – there would be headstands during their party. We never got the full story of why this was a tradition, but we now believe this should become as common as exchanging wedding rings at a wedding. Chuck confirmed their wedding was all they hoped and more: a day filled with love, laughter and a lot of head stands. Mother nature was out in full force with every kind of wind and rain, but this didn’t deter the celebration from being a fantastic time for all. The love Caitlin and Greg share clearly dominates any weather thrown their way, which also serves as a beautiful metaphor for their married life together in the future. It’s been our pleasure getting to know these two and celebrating their union. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Everything about Caitlin + Tom’s Wedding day was so thoughtful and special. We love, love, love when couples personalize their day to prioritize what’s important to them – and these two *nailed* it. We’ve found a surprising amount of folks who have connections to both New England and Minnesota like we do, and Caitlin and Tom fit this bill as well. They live in Somerville, Mass but choose to hold their wedding in the city the bride grew up in. You may remember their Somerville Engagement session and now it’s come full circle with their Minneapolis wedding. They started their wedding day getting ready at Caitlin’s parents beautiful loft condo right next to the Mill City Museum where there was a calm but excited energy buzzing about when I arrived to capture the final preparation details. After a darling first look we caught up with their friends and family for some photos around Minneapolis and the Stone Arch Bridge, dodging sun showers the whole way. Their ceremony was in the community room at her parents loft, and while it was the back up rain plan, all the guests agreed it was the perfect spot for their ceremony. They choose highly personalized readings and incorporated two performance art pieces that were both a nod to traditional wedding passages (like a unity candle) but had their own twist that fit their career interests (they are both academic musicians and artists). After the ceremony all the guests were treated to a champagne reception – with truffles and chocolates of course –  and a live accordion player which made for a festive and Parisian flair. Following that everyone ventured down the street to the highly acclaimed Twin Cities restaurant, The Bachelor Farmer for a cocktail hour and beautiful dinner. Matt and I decided that if we had to plan our wedding all over again we may just beg Caitlin and Tom to let us copy them. Such an enjoyable day, such a lovely couple. Caitlin and Tom – thank you for allowing us to document your wedding. You are both a delight and we couldn’t be happier for you!

The S family came into the studio to celebrate the arrival of their newest member with some updated family shots. If there is one thing I learned, it’s that these two kiddos are lucky to have their loving, thoughtful and kind parents to lead their way through the years. What a gift. It fills our hearts to document these memories for families like the S Family, and we are honored to photograph this new chapter in their lives.

These two! Happiness abounds. We first met Fiona a few years back when she went through our Photography Mentorship program. We take a small number of individuals per year whom we mentor one-on-one to help them reach their photography goals. We loved getting to know Fiona during that time, and was excited to learn about Allie coming into her life shortly after that season. It wasn’t long before they were engaged and planning a wedding in Boston. They share a love of rescue dogs, their own sweet pups topping the charts of their affection. It was only fitting that Lena and Flip play a part of their wedding day, and they made donations toward a local rescue as part of their wedding experience. Even their reception tables were named after dog breeds. Chuck had the honor of photographing their big day at the Hyatt Harborside on the East side of Boston (with the most beautiful view of the skyline!) and brought along the fabulous Vina to second shoot. Fiona is from Ireland, so many guests traveled across the world to share in their big day with them, as well as brought some serious Irish dance moves to the floor. Chuck reports that is was one of the most fun dance floors he’s ever photographed. We couldn’t be happier for these two and know that their future together will include much joy and a healthy dose of dog snuggles. Congratulations Allie and Fiona!!

We’ve had the privilege of getting to know Dani and Carl through their Maternity session, Newborn Photos and now 6 Month photos for their son, F. Little F is a happy-go-lucky kind of guy that makes you want a dozen more kids. The joy he brings to this family is unsurpassable, and Dani and Carl are naturals. We met up in our studio in Lowertown to get some updated shots of their family, and then braved the brisk but sunny outdoors for a few shots outside. Little F didn’t complain a bit about the cold, and instead bopped around and was happy to have the extra snuggles from Mom and Dad. We’ll get to photograph this darling family again come November for F’s first birthday, but in the meanwhile, enjoy the sweetness!

Jamison is in the military, and with the whirlwind of moving and job assignments in the coming months, it made sense for them to celebrate their union (in style!) now and throw a party down the road. They invited us to document their day which we loved in every way. There is something so special about that first champagne toast with just a few people in the room, the lack of dry eyes in every seat and the love radiating between two people when their special Tuesday Wedding means more to them than any multiple thousand dollar affair on a weekend. Congratulations Julie + Jamison! We hope to see your radiating faces on our blog again in the future.
