Itasca State Park Engagement Wedding Photographer

Kayla and Elliot are brave. I have never seen two people fight off so many mosquitoes.  You wouldn’t know it from the pictures, but we were dancing and running and slapping at those nasty bugs all throughout the session.  Other than that, the session was perfect!  Kayla and Elliot are adorable together, and were so much fun to photograph.  I was really excited to do their session at Itasca State Park.  It is one of my favorite parks around the Bemidji area.  It offers so many different backgrounds and unique places to take pictures.

It was also really nice meeting Kayla’s mom who came along for the session.  She was AWESOME!  She watched my bag, carried props, had great ideas, and was so fun to be around!  She also was helping with the mosquito swatting.

Some of my favorite images from this session were the ones including the fun and creative Save The Date ideas.  Kayla and Elliot had a flag banner that had their wedding date on it.  We also did a chalkboard Save The Date collage at the end.   I loved their unique ideas!

Ashley and Chris Engagement Shoot in Bemidji

These two lovebirds were fun to hang out with.  The word that comes to mind when I think about them is…kind.  Not just kind, but sincerely kind.  It shows within minutes after meeting them.  I’m super excited to photograph their big day in September!

A HUGE thank you to Lisa and Jeff Mitchell for letting me use their awesome barn yet again.  It is great to be able to incorporate something with so much history and character into my photos.  One of my most favorite places to photograph.  Thanks, Mitchells!
