"As lifestyle photographers, we find the extraordinary in the everyday and capture the real moments in your life through beautiful imagery. We believe that photography is more than just pictures; photography preserves tangible memories that can be passed on for generations. From holding hands as an engaged couple to exchanging vows on your wedding day. From your newborn baby’s first days to their high school senior portraits and all of the milestone in between. We keep it fun and light in order to let your true self shine through and tell YOUR story.
I fell in love with photography while studying graphic design at the University of Minnesota. After obtaining my BS degree in 2009, I continued to pursue my true passion in photography and started our business in 2011. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, camping, biking, knitting, and playing legos with our son. My camera is always in my hand.
My photography journey began with sports photography while coaching high school nordic skiing. To this day my favorite aspect of photography is capturing moments as they unfold naturally. I make myself as unobtrusive as possible on your wedding day while remaining editorial. In my spare time I love to ski, camp, bike, and spend time with our son."
