tim & mel

Cheers to my dear friends Tim and Mel.  We celebrated their big day in Stillwater, MN and as always when we get together ... we laugh, danced, and had an amazing time celebrating.  Even though the rain didn't stay away, it certainly didn't stop the celebration.  Mel and Tim were troopers and said, "the heck with the rain, let's have a good time!"  It makes such a big difference when the bride and groom can go with the flow if the weather isn't dry.  I am so fortunate to work with such awesome people.  
It is such a blessing to be a part of their big day.  Thank you Tim and Mel for including us not only as your guests but as your photographers.   We love you!  Em & Will

jeff & tammy, sweetie shots for 25th anniversary

Meet the super in love couple Tammy and Jeff.  Tammy and Jeff contacted me about capturing their 25th anniversary earlier this spring.  I immediately jumped at the chance to work with them for this special occasion.  And wow was I pleased that I did.  I told them during the shoot that they should give seminars to newlyweds about kissing and being cute together.
Thanks for trusting me with your special occasion.  Cheers to 25 more your fabulous years!  Congrats! Em

deanna, and family!

Meet baby Diana.  It was so much fun to be able to meet another baby from another one of my past couples.  I worked with Jeff and Nikki back in 2007 for their awesome wedding.  We had such a good time back then and recently had a another great time at the park with their newest family member Deanna.  What a cute girl.  This one year old stole my heart with her two little teeth and her adorable smile.  I love this trend of having past bride and grooms come back to me as their families grow!  Thank you for including me in the fun and your lives.  Also, thank you for being so patient with the computer issues we have been happening.  All fixed now and back in the groove.  I'm thrilled that you are my first past back in action.  All the best, Em

happy birthday skye, surprise kate & pete!

Oh how I love a good surprise!  While I was traveling in London in May I had the pleasure of being able to   babysit my newest friend Skye with my girlfriend Lisa.  Lisa knew that Skye's first birthday was soon approaching and she wanted to do something special for it.  
So we put our heads together, and decided while we were being super nannies we would take some pic's to  surprise Kate and Pete.  
Well, SURPRISE!  Here is a day of firsts.  The first time on the swings, a pony, and eating cake!  We love you Skye.  Happy first birthday!!!!

carlos & jamie Geneva, Switzerland

I am so excited to introduce my newest in love couple, Carlos and Jamie.  They were recently relocated for work to live in Geneva, Switzerland.  We thought it would be perfect opportunity to shoot their engagement photos in their new location as now they can share where they live with everyone they love.  They also get the added bonus of having great images of their first home and city together.  
I traveled there at the end of May and was so blown away by how beautiful and unique the location was for pictures.  Basically twenty steps from where Carlos and Jamie live there is a massive park that takes you right to the lake.  The colors and the trees where straight from a movie set.  When we got to the lake I became obsessed with the funky weird trees that lined the walking path and of course the fountain. 
This opportunity also gave me a chance to get to really know Carlos and Jamie and as well for them to get to know me and how I shoot.  This way on the wedding day they can be completely comfortable and know exactly what to expect.
Thank you Carlos and Jamie for the amazing time and being so willing to show us your city and home.  I'm so glad we were able to see some new sites together.  See you in Minneapolis for the big day soon!  Cheers to you both,  Em and Lisa
