Lakeside Wedding in Northern Minnesota – Jenny + Eric

A few weeks ago, I drove up to Sturgeon Lake, Minnesota to photograph Jenny and Eric’s Lakeside wedding. Jenny’s family has some cabins and beautiful land up there.  This place was the perfect backdrop for their outdoor wedding.  Even better, the weather was low humidity, sunny, and perfect temperatures.  In fact, pretty much everything was […]

Austin – North St Paul High School Senior

Austin – North St Paul High School Senior

I have known Austin since we first moved to Minnesota back in 2006.  I worked with him in Boy Scouts and at church. At that time, he was a pesky 13 year old.  He was always goofing off and seemed to enjoy pestering me : )  It’s amazing to see how much he has grown […]
