Think about it, my fellow married love birds: When was your last date night?
For us, it’s not about fancy, elaborate date nights; it’s about taking time to be fully present together. We sample new beers from our fave local breweries, hike somewhere new with the dog, plan fun home renovation projects, or dream up our next travel adventure (usually within days of our last one). And for those times we’re low on creativity? Our tattered Ziploc bag full of restaurant gift cards to the rescue!
Friends often ask why I chose to work in the wedding industry. In reality, that’s not front-of-mind for me. The reason I pursue this work year after year is not because I love weddings (although I do), but because I firmly believe in marriage. I believe in choosing the same imperfect person every single day, not because it’s easy, but because it’s worth fighting for, ya know? I wanna throw myself into your beautiful mess & capture the sweet nothings and the sweet somethings. I want your images to make you ugly-cry all the happy tears today (and maybe 25 years from now, too). All this to say: When it comes to my couples, I’m all in, for better or worse.
We’ve been married for nearly four years now (holy moly, where does the time go?), and I know from experience: Unless you’re being super intentional, it’s easy to let date nights fall by the wayside. You have to carve out time and make stuff happen, otherwise it never will. You can’t just let marriage happen to you. Like so many other worthy pursuits, marriage won’t work unless YOU do! That’s why I am over-the-moon to introduce The Beloved Collections: Handcrafted sessions & date nights-in-one, for couples who want a marriage more beautiful than their wedding day. Designed as date nights, these Duluth lifestyle sessions help couples celebrate their marriage & deepen their connection. My heart thrives working with couples, and I can’t wait to connect with new friends, whether you’ve been married for one year or 25!
