stacey & kevin

Check out Stacey and Kevin's fabulous wedding in Duluth, MN. The beginning of the day gave us cold and raining weather, but just at the perfect time, the weather cleared for a good half hour and we were blessed with another awesome opportunity to get great lighting for great images. Stacey and Kevin were extremely flexible because we had to make new plans to deal with the weather. Their flexibility really paid off. You have no idea by their faces that they were freezing. It was only 35 degrees by the water during some of those shots, so they did a great job.
One of my favorite parts of the day was at the end of the ceremony when the string quartet played "All Of My Love" by Led Zeppelin. That was the first time I had heard that song played at a wedding, and I thought it was awesome! Thank you for doing something out of the box. This was a great example of how to do a classic rock song tastefully (or sneaky) inside a church ceremony!
Stacey and Kevin's reception was held at Greysolon Ballroom in downtown Duluth. Greysolon is not only a beautiful locations, especially for winter weddings, but the staff, service, and meal was outstanding. I was very impressed with this location and look forward to working there again.
Thanks again for the great Saturday. Congrats on your big day. It was beautiful.
All the best, Em

Hello Louis! Two of our great friends are the fine owners of this energetic English Bull dog! What a funny little guy. I just love his funny face. At times it looks like he is totally smiling at you. What a hoot. Thanks for the fun at the park Lou.

lind family

Meet my dear friend Nyra and her funny and adorable children Nadia and Oliver. We did a quick shoot in my neighborhood before all the fall leaves fell and were covered by snow. Many smiles and giggles, but of course the promise of a sucker for Oliver helped to hold back the tears of this spunky 2 year old. As all you mom's know, 2 year old kids don't want to do anything that isn't exactly what they want to do! Sometimes bribes help, but only for 3 seconds! Good thing my shutter is quick! Thanks for the fun. I love you guys. Em

roth kids

Check out the beautiful Roth children. They are so adorable, and their eyes are stunning. I can't stop staring! We met over at Bukolt Park and took advantage of the fall leaves and the fun jungle gym. I can't believe how big everyone is getting. I love watching them grow! Thank you Kelly for continuing to come back and use me for your photography! All the best to you and your growing team! Love You!

jandrian family

Here is the highly adorable Jandrian crew again. I am the luckiest girl to have such an awesome job and such great clients. I worked with Alissa, Josh, and Addison a few years back, and had the pleasure of working with them again with the addition of Connor. What adorable siblings!
We meet at their house for some autum shots in the yard and then moved the fun inside for jammie time and stories! Alissa had the idea that she wanted to capture the kids at jammie time because they are so cute. I think it was one of the best suggestions. Get blankies and books and capture such a presious time in their lives. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such special moment. I just love Addison with her blankie and Connor biting on the crib. TOO cute!
Thanks for inviting me into your home. I had a great time. Em
