Valerie and Ben – Bemidji Wedding Photographer

Sorry not sorry for the image overload that is about to unfold.  I don’t know how I could narrow down the images any more!

Valerie and Ben are such a beautiful and fun couple!  They’re the kind of people that you are drawn to and instantly become friends with.   This was quite apparent after seeing how many friends and family attended the wedding.  They were married at the Evangelical Church in Bemidji, and it was packed!

I was very thankful that Valerie and Ben invested the time in their photography schedule to stop at a couple of special locations.  The most romantic one was at Diamond Point Park.  They were able to see each other for the first time on their wedding day at the same spot where they had their first kiss.  It was Valerie’s favorite moment of the wedding day because it gave them a quiet moment together before the craziness of the rest of the day happened.  We also stopped at a beautiful property that featured an old white barn.  It was graciously offered to us and made a fun backdrop for the bridal party images.

After the ceremony we followed up with celebrating at the Beltrami County Fairgrounds.  I have never seen it so beautifully decorated!  It was the perfect setting for the rest of the evening that was filled with laughter and dancing.  This group really knew how to do both on an expert level!

Congratulations, Valerie and Ben!  Thank you for choosing me to be your photographer!  It was such an amazing day, and I loved every minute that I got to be with you two!  May God continue to bless you both and your new life together!

Lindsay and Joe – Russian Village Wedding at Concordia

Concordia Language Villages is always such a beautiful place to visit.  Each village is surrounded by the beauty of Northern Minnesota.  It is never difficult to find a pretty spot for pictures with all of the majestic trees and lush vegetation everywhere.

I had the honor of photographing Lindsay and Joe’s amazing wedding at the Russian Language Village.  This is the first event I’ve covered at this particular village, and I was not disappointed.  Not only are Lindsay and Joe full of character, but so is the lovely location they chose to start the rest of their lives together at.  You’ll see what I mean as you stroll through their gorgeous day below.

Bemidji Newborn Photographer – Baby Oliver

Loved the lil bundle of sunshine I got to photograph during this rainy day!  It was so fun to try out some new ideas in this gorgeous home.  Every corner seemed to be the perfect spot to photograph this beautiful newborn.

Note that the photos taken in the bookshelf are composites.  Oliver’s mom safely held him the entire time.  🙂
