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.  🙂

Sibling Photos in Bemidji

These three were a blast!  They wanted to get Christmas pictures taken as a gift for their parents.  Two sisters and their little brother, who wasn’t so little as he towered over them!  We were hoping for snow since it was almost December.  Hardly any snow.  This has been a weird winter so far in Northern Minnesota.  We found one shaded spot on the path that revealed a little white layer of it, but that was about it.  I had to be creative and use other resources.  We took some with pines, some by a bridge, and some at a construction site nearby.  They were brave to venture out into the site with me.  There were hazards all over the place.  I’m glad we risked it.  The pictures were great.  Definitely not a place I will ever take children!
