Kayla & Ryan: Northern Minnesota Engagement Session

One of my favorite not-so-secret session spots: Boulder Lake. Located just north of Duluth, close to home, and reminiscent of the B-dub (for those unfamiliar, that’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness). This little slice of woodsy heaven is rich with mosquitoes in spring, paddlers in summer, and golden birch groves in fall. It’s my fave. […]


Kayla & Steve: Duluth, MN Engagement Session on Park Point

I’ve lost count of how many four-legged family members I’ve had the pleasure of feeding treats & making alien noises for, camera firmly in hand.

Well, turns out, my couples specialize in non-fictional meet-cutes! This is real life, friends. […]


Katy & Richie: Duluth Skyline Engagement Session

Katy & Richie dropped me a love note a few weeks after their engagement this spring (which unfolded on a Vail mountaintop, no less). It was only after booking that we learned how much our interests overlap: They have two dogs, one of whom is a four month-old Bernese Mountain Dog named Everest. We immediately agreed that […]

The Couple: Mackenzie & Ryan Where is home? They’re currently dividing time between Chicago & Springfield, IL! (Mackenzie hails from Bemidji, MN and Ryan from Gillespie, IL) How they met: They initially crossed paths online, then spent five months writing to one another before finally meeting face-to-face. Three things they simply can’t live without: Mackenzie – Music (Spotify […]
