Among Minnesota engagement photographers, I stand out by providing a relaxed and laughter-filled engagement photo experience to my clients who often become and remain friends after working with me! I’ve been serving soon to be brides and grooms since 2012 -see what they have to say about their experience with me here! I specialize in classic, vibrant, romantic images that avoid trends and remain timeless for when your grandchildren find them! Some of my favorite engagement sessions to photograph have included the great outdoors and lots of it, playtime with pets (a smiley mini dachshund, a chubby golden lab puppy and a playful black lab!) couples that can keep up with my quick witted humor, easygoing love and willingness to try anything!

You can trust me to capture your love well because of my 5+ years of experience serving portrait clients, my commitment to creating images that feel genuine (not posed!) my technical skill, and my constant pursuit of knowledge in art (I’ve got a B.A. in Studio Art & Art History and am currently pursuing my Masters of Fine Art!) Your images are backed up on multiple devices and stored in an online gallery for ten years after your session, so you can breathe easy knowing that your love, in such a specific time in your life, will be remembered forever. I take pride in my ability to keep your session low-stress, comfortable, fun, and authentic to YOU and your fiance.

My engagement sessions are complimentary within my wedding packages.
