Bryana of Riutta Images (Portraits)

When the blossoms were still in bloom, I got together with Bryana from Riutta Images to do a fun photoshoot.  We have known each other for a long time but for some reason never really got the chance to officially meet and have a conversation!  It was so fun getting to know Bryana,  and of course they is never a silent moment when two photographers get together!
















Thanks so much Bryana!  It was a blast!

Run or Dye - Marquette MI (personal)


You may remember a very similar blog post from last year I did about the Color Run that me and some of my friends did in Grand Rapids (see it HERE!!).  We heard that "Run or Dye" was coming to Marquette a town less than 2hours away so we decided to do it again!  







The following 5 images are from my friend Kelsey's camera.  She was the only one who took hers into the race.




My favorite picture from the whole day!! SOOO colorful!









Thanks for stopping by!

Tom & Victoria (Minnesota wedding photographer)

Tom and Victoria were married on a gorgeous spring day in Minnesota.  The day couldn't have worked out more perfect, it was predicted to rain all day but we got lucky, the rain held off until the start of the ceremony!  Just enough time for us to get all our pictures in! :)

I jumped right into capturing the final touches when I got there.




I am pretty sure I have a photo of either the bride or groom from every wedding i've done talking on the phone ironing out all the last minute details! haha

 Victoria's sister and Maid of Honor Lauren



Victoria told me she wore "Toms for Tom" haha how fun!



It was a very windy day as the storm slowly came in.







The first look...









On to bridal party in the neighbors gorgeous yard! 





I just love this photo!


I LOVE when couples chose to have their family pictures done outside!  Future couples take note, the colors and lighting are just so much nicer and natural for family pictures outdoors.


We allowed plenty of time for bride and groom portraits in our timeline, another thing I absolutely love!  It is so much fun to get a large variety of shots of the bride and groom.  I always like to say, these are the images you are likely going to hang big on your wall anyway.


This one is by far my favorite! I just love it!!









We then headed to the church, where I caught all the flower girls doing their last minute preparation! 









All of Toms sisters, "We are finally sisters!" ;)







 Instead of a cake they had a delicious cupcake "tree".






Congratulations Tom and Victoria!  
Thank you so much for having me!
