Rain on a wedding day proves to be one of the most commonly feared events that will happen when the big day rolls around. While most of the weddings we shoot are not rainy, there are a few that Mother Nature has her way. Jessica and Chris’ Wedding at the Minikahda Club in Minneapolis was one of those fierce Midwest stormy days that one wouldn’t have been surprised if a tornado rolled in. For those of you who know the eerie stillness these storms bring, you can imagine the challenge it might give for a wedding day. Fortunately for Jessica and Chris, their wedding was literally dripping with amazing details that didn’t need to be outdoors to shine. Lush florals, farmhouse tables, decadent sweets and this stunning pair tied the knot in style – forget the rain! We were so honored to have the privilege of working with Jessica and Chris and will always remember their wedding with fondness. We are so happy for this kind, compassionate pair and wish them all the best!

Deirdre + Casey = Married

Deirdre and Casey threw one of the most beautifully classic weddings we’ve had the privilege of photographing. From her stunning gown to their Commonwealth Avenue portraits and the decadently beautiful setting of Alden Castle, these two know how to celebrate in style. We might be biased, but we feel like Boston is the most beautiful […]

Deirdre and Casey threw one of the most beautifully classic weddings we’ve had the privilege of photographing. From her stunning gown to their Commonwealth Avenue portraits and the decadently beautiful setting of Alden Castle, these two know how to celebrate in style. We might be biased, but we feel like Boston is the most beautiful city in the US, and there is pretty much nothing more romantic than a classic city wedding. Deirdre and Casey’s love is steadfast and true, and we’re smitten with the way they personified their connection into their soiree. Matt was there to capture all the action and it’s safe to say that the rest of us (Kendra, Chuck and Abby) were pretty jealous for hitting the wedding client jackpot. Congratulations Deirdre and Casey! You both have been such a joy to work with. We wish you years of love, red wine and cheese. ;)

Amanda + Jaco = Married

As some of you may know, Matt and I were wed at the Codman Estate in 2011. Amanda and Jaco’s Wedding was the first time we’ve returned to our favorite venue for one of our clients weddings, so there was already a heightened sense of emotion on our end when going into Amanda and Jaco’s […]

As some of you may know, Matt and I were wed at the Codman Estate in 2011. Amanda and Jaco’s Wedding was the first time we’ve returned to our favorite venue for one of our clients weddings, so there was already a heightened sense of emotion on our end when going into Amanda and Jaco’s wedding. Naturally, we felt such affinity to Codman that we knew it would be a stellar backdrop for photos, but the space is so familiar to us that we weren’t sure how we’d capture it in a new light. Just like every wedding, I arrived with an open heart ready to document the day as it set out. Thanks to the power of the internet, we had never met Amanda and Jaco in person until their wedding day, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. You guys. There could not be two more beautiful, loving, genuine souls as Amanda and Jaco. Their warm spirits and charismatic personalities were the icing on a very pretty cake. Shooting this wedding was a dream for me. From the absolutely perfect weather and stunning scenery (I still loose my breath every time I’m in the Italian Garden at Codman)  to the jovial celebration surrounding their new chapter in life, this wedding was amazing. Amanda and Jaco, thank you for letting me capture your love. We could not be more smitten with you two! Congratulations !

TuVan + Peter = Married

Recently, we’ve had a pretty cool trend with our couples having been together for nearly ten years. There is such a great familiarity in these relationships that feels like each person is the calming force of the other’s world.

Recently, we’ve had a pretty cool trend with our couples having been together for nearly ten years. There is such a great familiarity in these relationships that feels like each person is the calming force of the other’s world. The comfortable, stable love and commitment these folks share is so sweet and tells us how great they will do in their marriage together. TuVan and Peter are a perfect example of this. TuVan is the type of girl who has a million things running through her mind and takes everyones feelings into consideration before speaking a calming word or making a well-thought-out decision. Peter is the kind of guy who makes you feel welcomed from the first hello with his magnetic, kind personality. Together they are a perfect match. TuVan and Peter shared not one, but two beautiful Vietnamese Tea Ceremonies on the morning of their Wedding Day that incorporated family and religious traditions such as generous gifting and delicious tea and food. After their families fed all their guests (and us!) with some seriously amazing food (two Vietnamese brunches before noon is a pretty awesome challenge if you ask us) TuVan and Peter changed into their stylish Western Wedding attire and gathered on the University of Minnesota campus (where they met!) with their wedding party for some fun photos between the rain storms. The celebration continued at a nearby Chinese banquet hall for more awesome food (a 10 course feast!), a hopping photobooth and some sweet dance moves. Special thanks to our Associate shooter Abby for third shooting with us on their wedding day and Congratulations to Tuvan and Peter!

Jillian + Pat = Married

Jillian and Pat’s Newport Wedding (shot by Chuck!) is about as lovely as they come. There is nothing quite as nice as two college sweethearts who have grown into adults together and are taking the next chapter in life by storm. Newport always photographs beautifully, but we are especially smitten with Chuck’s work with Jillian and […]

Jillian and Pat’s Newport Wedding (shot by Chuck!) is about as lovely as they come. There is nothing quite as nice as two college sweethearts who have grown into adults together and are taking the next chapter in life by storm. Newport always photographs beautifully, but we are especially smitten with Chuck’s work with Jillian and Pat despite the gail force winds they contended with. We love that they had their ceremony on campus where they met at Salve Regina University and thought their stylish and bright pops of color accented the backdrop of the ocean quite nicely.  Jillian and Pat, the two of you have been so wonderful to work with. We couldn’t be happier for you and wish you nothing but the best! Congratulations!

Morgan + Jordan = Married

I’m not sure if we’ve ever worked with a couple SO EXCITED to get married. Morgan and Jordan are so well suited for one another, and their love left us with a huge grin wiped across our face. With common loves for travel, adventure, God and the outdoors, these two are as beautiful on the […]

I’m not sure if we’ve ever worked with a couple SO EXCITED to get married. Morgan and Jordan are so well suited for one another, and their love left us with a huge grin wiped across our face. With common loves for travel, adventure, God and the outdoors, these two are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. Their Wedding day was filled with 300 of their closest friends and family, lots of great stories (and songs!) and a skies that had forecasted 100% chance of rain but not a drop touched their shoulders during their wedding. It was a pretty spectacular day. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to capture their wedding story (special thanks to our talented friend and second shooter, Ellie!) and wish the happy couple so many years of great adventures. Congratulations Morgan and Jordan!

Grace + Jeremiah = Married

Grace and Jeremiah were married on a rainy day in Mankato, Minnesota, but these photos wouldn’t prove that. You see, Grace and Jeremiah have this infectious positive field around them. They are down to earth, fun-loving and happy people, so naturally, wherever they went on their wedding day, the rain stayed away. Case in point, […]

Grace and Jeremiah were married on a rainy day in Mankato, Minnesota, but these photos wouldn’t prove that. You see, Grace and Jeremiah have this infectious positive field around them. They are down to earth, fun-loving and happy people, so naturally, wherever they went on their wedding day, the rain stayed away. Case in point, before their ceremony it *poured* rain, but moments before the ceremony was to start, the clouds parted and the sun came out. Later on during their cocktail hour the skies filled with clouds and the rain started again. It really worked out perfectly. We loved shooting in the beautiful Sibley Park in Mankato and felt like their spunky reception details fit in perfectly with the warehouse space of the Pavilion located in the park. It’s been such a joy working with you, Grace and Jeremiah, and we wish you so many years of happiness together. Special thanks to our new Associate Abby for coming along to shoot with us on their wedding! Congrats you two!
