Two Very Full Weeks in Photos!

These past couple weeks things went a little nuts.  I had my parents visiting and watching Maisy while I photographed several weddings, then Josh and I traveled to MN for some gigs where I got to see all sorts of family and friends (Maisy is a popular little girl) and photograph a gorgeous engagement session in downtown Minneapolis, we came back just in time for me to photograph another wedding in the Chicago suburbs, and finally Maisy and I tried to take it easy on Sunday (Mom bought her some black and white books and clearly she’s taken by them).

Photo 1:  Sam is ruining the pillows on our couch… but he does look adorable while doing it at least!

Photo 2:  When Josh is gone I end up taking “selfies” per his request.  This one, after hunting through all of my clothes (because it is never easy to find something that covers my belly anymore) I was ready to head to Mama and Papa-in-laws to finish planting the garden!  This year I have tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, zucchini, green beans, carrots, beets, and lettuce growing so far!  In this photo I am 34 weeks pregnant.

Photo 3:  I just love this wedding invite!  Can’t wait to stand up in Hannah and Austin’s wedding!  P.S.  Did their engagement shoot a week ago and y’all are in for a visual treat that’s for sure!

Photo 4:  I got to do an interior design shoot for the Home and Garden issue BRAVA Magazine is doing for June.  Since I cannot technically reveal photos before publication I snuck this little photo while I was there!

Photo 5:  I did an incredible boudoir shoot at the studio last week!  Can’t wait to work on these images and to hear all about how much her husband-to-be loves them!

Photo 6:  Since Josh couldn’t make it to the MN baby shower we had to send him a photo 🙂  In this photo I am 35 weeks pregnant.

Photo 7:  Haley hunted a big fly all day.  Even into the night here she is waiting for the assailant to come back out of the lamp.

a hot pink, glam meets rustic flair backyard wedding (Megan + Justin are married!) – Minnesota wedding photography

Growing up in Minnesota I find I have a certain nostalgia for various places.  Two of these places that I adore aesthetically and culturally is Buffalo (my hometown) and Minneapolis.  Michaela + Cole’s engagement shoot satisfied my craving to photograph in downtown Buffalo, but I was still dying to photograph in specific areas of downtown Minneapolis.  Turns out, Megan was dying to do their engagement session in downtown Minneapolis right around the corner from the spots I had been eyeing for years.  We chatted about our ideas and desires and came up with a perfect blend for her to hit up her favorite spots and mine!  It was epic!  I totally spent about 2 hours with them romping around the city because I couldn’t stop photographing them and continued to stumble on even more awesome photo spots.

Needless to say, after such a fantastic experience with these two on their engagement shoot I was beyond looking forward to their wedding.  I was also so excited because I learned very quickly from Megan that I was going to be in charge of photographing a truly unique wedding – she described their look to me as pink + glam meets rustic flair.  As she talked into further detail I learned I was getting to photograph another backyard wedding, my favorite, decorated with chandeliers, black and white all around with hot pink accents, and a little bit of wood and moss in the mix to satisfy Justin’s craving for the natural look.  The combination of the two of their tastes, obviously, was gorgeous!  I loved the personal flavor of the wedding and the DIY/glam feel to the whole day -can’t say I ever would have imagined those two describing words lumped together!
