When I first start chatting with a couple, I always ask: "What's your ideal day off together?" For Jessica & Jason, the response went something like this: 1.) Get coffee. 2.) Road trip to Duluth. 3.)

I believe you’re never too old or too busy to hold hands (fingers laced, not hands cupped). I believe that tickle fights should be
When I first met with Chris & Greg in a cozy coffeehouse last November, it took only moments for me to feel the zsa-zsa-zsu. It's that special version of butterflies I get when I meet a couple I am truly meant to work with. Their idea of a good time involves a kegerator (engineered by the mechanically-gifted Greg, of course) full of their own special home brew. They're about hikes in
I met Adam & Kayla on a frigid Duluth day, a couple of weeks before Christmas at this wonderful cafe in Canal Park. We chatted over steaming cups of cocoa about their love story and family-focused lives. After our little warm-up, we braved the wind chills for a Canal Park frolic.
