Laura and John's Outdoor City Park Wedding

So many things to love about this wedding. An outdoor ceremony and reception on a perfect day surrounded by this scenery. Laura and John did just about everything themselves, rolled the dice on the weather, and were rewarded. Arneson Acres in Edina was the perfect setting for this celebration. Plus their dog was the flower girl, which guarantees a great day.

Liana and Scott's Northern California Engagement Session

When I found out Liana and Scott live in Northern California and love to hike and adventure, I knew what we had to do. Minnesota is great but this is like visiting another world. I'm so glad I got to explore the incredible scenery with these two.

Best of 2016

This is the hardest and most fun post to put together every year. I get to relive every wedding and engagement session as I spend days narrowing down an overwhelmingly large number of photos to a couple hundred. I learn so much along the way.

2016 was my busiest year yet and I'm proud of the work I did. I'm incredibly thankful for the couples who invite me to witness and document the biggest day of their lives. I never take that for granted and work hard to repay the trust they put in me.

I'd also like to thank my main assistant Josh Olson who helped me on a number of these weddings. A few of the photos he took with me are included below.

Here are some highlights from 2016. Settle in for a long post; it was a great year.
