.julia & wayne. White Bear Lake photographer

Meet Mr. and Mrs. Erickson!  I was a little concerned when I met Wayne that he was going to be all business and very formal during the wedding.  Being called Ma'am threw me for a loop as the northern boys usually aren't that respectful!  But within seconds of turning him around to see Julia the  switch was flipped and he became ANIMATED.  I believe if the military is looking for a male model similar to the Zealander movie, they have their man.
Julia too fell right into his trap of fun ... actually we all did!  It was a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding and a fab time.  Thank you for the fun and enjoying your wedding day to the fullest with me.  I hope this images bring back fabulous memories for you for many year to come!

.alexis & jon. Stevens Point Wedding photographer

I am thrilled to introduce you to Mr. & Mrs. Sorensen.  You might recognize Alexis, she was my assistant for many years until she moved to Colorado to be with Jon.  As sad as I was when she moved it was such a joy to know she was following her heart!
I was humbled when Alexis called to tell me that she was engaged and the only thing that she knew that she wanted was for me to do the photography!  What an honor to be such a big part of their day.  It was so much fun to have her on the other side of the camera too.  She shined as a bride!
Alexis and Jon had a beautiful ceremony and fantastic receptions at Smiley's in Plover, WI.  I had the best time shooting their day and am so excited for their future!  I adore you Alexis and hope Jon knows how lucky he is to have you!  Congrats on your marriage and cheers to many more years of happiness!  Love, M

To top off the night Jon planned a flash mob with all this family and friends to surprise alexis!  What a fantastic way to start the dancing party!

.jennifer & thomas. Wedding Photographer Duluth, MN

When I was meeting with Jennifer and Thomas I asked them if they had a "Theme" for their wedding.  They looked at each other and then back at me with a questioning look on their faces.  "What do you mean by a theme?" they asked.   I told them couples will often have a theme as the backdrop of a wedding.  Such as rustic elegance, nature vintage or as wild as a Great Gatsby or Harry Porter themed weddings.  They giggled and said, "Um, the theme is us getting married!"  We all laughed.  I knew right there they were going to be great to work with on their big day.  The details that were important to them were the two of them being surrounded with their family and friends.
Don't get me wrong, themes are fun and beautiful to shoot but I loved that Jennifer and Thomas stuck true to their theme of love, commitment and being surrounded by the ones you love!
Congrats and cheers to many more years!  M
