Bri & Ben – Bemidji Engagement Photos

Check out this fun and bright engagement session!

I love it when people bring along great outfits and props!  It makes the photos more unique and personalized.  My favorite prop that Bri and Ben brought to their engagement session was the balloons.  I love balloons in photos!  It gives such a fun variety of images and adds a great pop of color.  I especially liked the balloons with Bri’s bright pink dress…bright pink is my favorite!

The other prop they brought was a BSU Beavers banner.  Bri and Ben met their freshman year at BSU, so it was a great way to incorporate their school into their images.

These images below are some of my favorites, but make sure to watch facebook for more!

Congratulations, you two!  I am so excited to photograph your wedding next summer!

Debbie and Rick – A Beautiful Vow Renewal

This was the first vow renewal I’ve ever photographed.  I knew it was going to be awesome.  If you know Debbie and Rick, you know everything they do is awesome.  They are so friendly and sincere.  It was a privilege to be there to witness and photograph this special day.  There was so much joy and love between not only them, but between their family and friends too.  Even though these two have been married for 15 years, they still look at each other like newlyweds.  I’m not even exaggerating.  You can tell that they are the best of friends.  I’m honored to know them.  Congratulations, Debbie and Rick, on your love and steadfastness!  Here’s to the next 15 years!

Archer turns 1!

This little man is too cute for words!  These pictures were taken in honor of his first birthday.  First birthdays always seem like a huge deal, especially when you are the first child.  It is such a special age when so much is changing.  This little man was dressed up so cute in a tie and red shirt.  We were even able to fit some family pictures in with his parents.  He did a great job.

What a great session!  Photographing children can be so fun when they’re allowed to play and be themselves!  These girls are 4, 7 and 8.  They made me wish that I had a sister growing up.  You can tell they’re used to getting their photos taken by mom.  They were hamming it up for my camera…which I love!  Their coordinating outfits were adorable too.  The colors were perfect.
