We started off at the baseball field at Chanhassen High School, where he plays catcher. He had a good time filling me in on some of the finer details of that position and I had fun sharing about my time photographing baseball in college. (But truthfully my favorite action sport to photograph is basketball) After we wrapped up at the field, we headed down the hill to historic downtown Chaska for more of an urban backdrop with a black polo and dress pants. Maddox has some of the most striking eyes ever that seemed to pop in such moody lighting. Before wrapping up, he switched to a t shirt and shorts for a more casual look. I had a great time capturing these senior portraits! His mom ended up picking a stunning photo cover album to show off favorites from the session, as well as a handful of high quality prints. It is the best part of my job to not only enjoy the session together with my clients, but to see the final images printed and in their hands.  ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_1ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_1 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_3ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_3 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_6ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_6 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_4ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_4 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_5ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_5 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_7ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_7 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_2ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_2 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_9ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_9 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_8ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_8 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_10ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_10 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_11ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_11 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_12ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_12 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_13ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_13 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_14ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_14 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_16ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_16 ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_15ChaskaMNSeniorPortraitPhotographer_15         Do you have a child finishing up their high school career?

april born baby boy | lincoln [newborn] | caver county newborn photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2022/5/april-born-baby-boy-lincoln-newborn-caver-county-newborn-photographer Freshly born Lincoln was a joy to capture at his family's home. His sweet little nursery was the perfect backdrop and I loved seeing how little he looked in his crib! His scrunched up face for his yawn was so precious. I couldn't resist capturing some close up images of his dark hair and darling toes. We also squeezed in some family portraits with his proud parents. They ended up ordering a stunning canvas of a family shot, a handful of high quality prints, along with a sharp photo cover album.  CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_2CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_2 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_3CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_3 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_4CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_4 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_1CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_1 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_7CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_7 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_6CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_6 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_5CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_5 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_8CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_8 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_13CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_13 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_11CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_11 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_12CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_12 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_10CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_10 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_14CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_14 CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_9CarverCountyNewbornPhotographer_9         Looking for a fun, full service photographer to give you a great session experience and deliver high quality prints after?

all the dogs & baby smiles | maas [extended family] | waconia full service family photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2021/3/all-the-dogs-baby-smiles-maas-extended-family-waconia-full-service-family-photographer A colorful fall day was the perfect time to round up the growing Maas family for an extended family session, including the two new grand girls and ALL the fur bals of the family! I met up with them at their property outside of Waconia, where the fall colors were vibrant and plentiful. It was fun wrangling all the dogs into position along with all the humans. There were a lot of laughs of course! Somehow with a lot of coaxing we were able to get all 5 dogs to pose together for a photo, which might've been my favorite shot of the entire session. Along with the group photo, we also broke off into individual families for their own portraits. A week following our session, I showed them all the best of the best and helped them pick out so many amazing prints, an album, and even a bright canvas. The product delivery is hands down the best part of my career - seeing all of my hard work (and your money!) pay off, in tangible ways to be enjoyed. I love watching my client's faces as they open their packages and flip through their own custom album. And that canvas looks amazing on the mantle! Thanks for an awesome session and ordering, Maas family!

fall colors & park exploring | nelson [family] | minneapolis family photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2021/2/fall-colors-park-exploring-nelson-family-minneapolis-family-photographer It was a one-of-a-kind gorgeous fall evening to meet up with the Nelson family to capture some updated portraits..they haven't had a session done since their youngest was a newborn, and now she's four! I'd say that's long overdue. I had so much fun finding the prettiest places in the park with the most fall colors for beautiful backdrops. I enjoyed getting some shots of just daddy and his little girls and of course had to steal the couple away for a few photos of them alone, too! This family picked out some amazing prints to display around their house and enjoy for years to come.  MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_1MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_1 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_3MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_3 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_2MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_2 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_4MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_4 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_6MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_6 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_5MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_5 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_7MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_7 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_9MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_9 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_8MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_8 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_10MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_10 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_11MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_11 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_13MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_13 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_14MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_14 MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_12MinneapolisFamilyPortraitPhotographer_12         Looking for a fun family photography experience that will result in beautiful high quality prints after your session?

summer farm & family time | eiden [family] | carver county family portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2021/2/farm-family-eiden-family-carver-county-family-portrait-photographer I met up with the Eiden family at the family farm in Carver County to photograph their newest addition: little sister Etta. Just as we started photographing, a rainbow appeared in the sky as a sign from her big brother Wyatt which was super special. We had a great time exploring all the angles of the farm and all of the lush green plants of the summer months. I loved the way the sun made them glow! Before we wrapped up, we couldn't resist some photos of miss Etta on her own looking so adorable with that popped leg! This family ordered some incredible high quality prints to display from their session.  MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_1MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_1 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_4MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_4 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_2MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_2 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_5MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_5 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_3MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_3 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_6MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_6 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_8MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_8 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_10MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_10 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_7MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_7 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_9MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_9 MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_11MontroseMNFamilyPhotographer_11         Time to update your family portraits?

We had such the best time exploring the tall grasses of the park and soaking up the summer sun. This family picked out the most perfect prints from this session to appreciate and enjoy. Being pregnant is such a fleeting time in our lives, and I think it is so important to have a bit of these moments captured professionally and to really do your mama bod justice.  MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_6MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_6 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_2MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_2 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_1MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_1 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_3MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_3 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_4MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_4 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_5MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_5 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_11MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_11 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_7MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_7 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_8MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_8 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_12MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_12 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_9MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_9 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_10MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_10 MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_13MinneapolisMaternityPhotographer_13         Pregnancy is such a fleeting time in our lives - make sure to capture these special moments with a professional maternity session.

october sunset glow | lehrke [family] | mn family portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2021/2/-lehrke-family-mn-family-portrait-photographer The most incredible fall colors and prettiest sunset light made for a gorgeous backdrop for the Lehkre's family portraits. The kids were all ready to smile at their proud parents. I loved their causal yet polished outfits. The sunset glow was so perfect and made their grins even brighter. I love how grown up Ty and Lexi looked posing with each other.

snowmobile racer's daughter | anna [newborn] | mn lifestyle newborn photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2021/2/snowmobile-racers-daughter-anna-newborn-mn-lifestyle-newborn-photographer Darling Anna made her arrival in the beginning of the summer to proud parents Matt & Jenn, and fur brother Ruger. Her dark eyes are so captivating and her tiny features so adorable. With a full head of dark hair and strong eye brows, this little sweetie is an absolute joy. I loved seeing the way she looked up at her daddy and looked in curiousity when the dog would bark. We did a few shots inside the family's home as well as some cute portraits on their front porch. Before we wrapped up, we couldn't resist doing some race-themed photos as a nod to her daddy's career in snowmobile racing. I love the prints they picked out to enjoy from this session and love seeing them on display in their home.  MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_1MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_1 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_2MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_2 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_3MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_3 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_4MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_4 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_5MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_5 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_6MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_6 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_9MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_9 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_8MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_8 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_7MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_7 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_11MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_11 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_10MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_10 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_12MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_12 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_14MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_14 MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_13MayerMNNewbornFamilyPhotographer_13         Welcoming a new member to the family?

fall smiles | s [family] | rochester mn family photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2021/1/-s-family-rochester-mn-family-photographer The S kids always keep me guessing and always keep me laughing. On a crisp fall afternoon in Rochester, MN, these kiddos showed off their personalities for the camera. Extra special was having Lillian Bear with to represent their sister who died before birth. I enjoyed watching two year old L run around and get into everything and biggest brother always trying to manage the circus. Youngest G took it all in in stride. These portraits made for a perfect holiday card!  RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_2RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_2 RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_3RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_3 RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_4RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_4 RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_9RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_9 RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_6RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_6 RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_8RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_8 RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_5RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_5 RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_10RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_10 RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_7RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_7 RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_1RochesterMNFamilyPhotographer_1         Looking for a fun family photographer to update your family portraits and actually get them printed?

giggles for days | potasek [family] | lakeville family photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2021/1/potasek-family-lakeville-family-photographer This was the most perfect evening as the golden sun was setting to capture updated family portraits for the Potasek family at their lakefront property in Lakeville, MN. I loved using the fall colors of their front yard birch trees as a backdrop for this family of 5. The girls have grown so much since I last say them and I enjoyed getting updated on their most current hobbies - tending their fairy garden (while the littlest sister enjoys throwing the tiny pieces in the yard!) Middle sister recently lost a tooth and she showed it off great in a smile! I loved seeing so much joy in this group spending the evening giggling together. At the ordering appointment, mom picked out some colorful prints to update the walls in their living room as well as other spots around their house. Can't wait for our next session to watch these gals continue to grow!  LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_4LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_4 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_1LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_1 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_2LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_2 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_5LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_5 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_6LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_6 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_9LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_9 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_3LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_3 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_8LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_8 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_7LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_7 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_10LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_10 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_12LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_12 LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_11LakevilleFullServiceFamilyPhotographer_11         Looking for a fun family photographer to help you get your beautiful portraits actually printed?

hearts full | h [family] | maple plain mn family photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2020/9/hearts-full-h-family-maple-plain-mn-family-photographer This was a super special portrait session that I was very grateful to do for this family. This mama and I connected through a local group called Hope Remains, a sustillbirth/miscarriage support group. Knowing that the H family has 2 babies in their hearts and not in their arms, I reached out to see if they wanted to do a session and incorporate the memory of their two sweet babes in their photos. Keeping in the fall theme, we included darling their darling little babies gone too soon with their initials on orange pumpkins. We also did a few family photos with little white wicker chairs which was just too adorable. These parents are just sweeter than pie and I'm glad I could capture these special photos for them. Always loving and always missing your babes with you, H family.  MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_1MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_1 MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_2MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_2 MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_3MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_3 MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_4MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_4 MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_5MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_5 MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_6MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_6 MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_7MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_7 MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_10MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_10 MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_9MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_9 MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_8MaplePlainFamilyPhotographer_8         Is your family portrait bigger in your heart than in your arms?

She adored the big colorful paper flowers that we used as a backdrop for her adorable demin outfit. After an attire change, we headed outside for her to show off some of her goofy scrunchy faces and desire to explore everything! I love her little bit of her hair clipped back, so cute. Then it was time to rock a tutu and smash her birthday cake! Happy (belated) first birthday, miss Lennon! I love seeing you grow and hope your parents enjoy their stunning prints.  BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_1BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_1 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_2BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_2 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_3BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_3 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_4BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_4 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_5BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_5 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_6BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_6 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_7BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_7 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_8BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_8 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_9BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_9 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_10BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_10 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_12BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_12 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_11BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_11 BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_13BurnsvilleProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_13         Looking for a fun, full-service portrait photographer in the Minneapolis area?

summer sunset family session | garber [family] | waconia mn family photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2020/9/summer-sunset-family-session-garber-family-waconia-mn-family-photographer A sunny June evening was the perfect setting for this family of 4 to take some updated portraits now that baby bear joined the crew! Big brother sat down right away and gave me the biggest smile, what a ham! His giggles and aim to please personality is too adorable. He loves his little brother, that's for sure. I laughed so much at his "digging for gold" during the family images - definitely a 'print & framer' type of photo! I'm sure his parents will be pulling that one out for his high school graduation. The parents picked the prettiest prints to grace their rustic living room shelves from these golden hour memories!  CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_1CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_1 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_7CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_7 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_3CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_3 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_2CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_2 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_6CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_6 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_4CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_4 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_5CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_5 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_8CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_8 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_10CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_10 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_14CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_14 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_9CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_9 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_11CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_11 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_13CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_13 CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_12CarverCountyProfessionalFamilyPhotographer_12     Looking for a fun family photographer to take your updated family portraits?

summer backyard micro wedding | aj & tiffany [married!] | minneapolis elopement photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2020/8/summer-backyard-micro-wedding-aj-tiffany-married-minneapolis-elopement-photographer Aj & Tiffany opted to get married in a small, intimate ceremony and it couldn't have been a more way for them to become husband and wife! The August day was warm and certainly felt like a hot summer day. I started off by photographing some of the unique details - from the bride's teal floral patterned dress, to her stunning ring & heirloom pearl necklace. A good friend put together the bridal bouquet using flowers from the local farmer's market & tied it with twine, the scent of lavender was heavenly! The couple had their first look out in the front yard of the groom's childhood home and they were so excited to see each other! The sun kept trying to peak out at moments while I took portraits of the bride and groom together. I kept making them get closer and closer despite the heat and humidity! Before the ceremony, we took a few group photos but thanks to COVID it was a very small gathering. Then it was time to get married! Aj's cousin delivered a message that was both touching and humorous, vows were exchanged, and a first kiss later, Aj and Tiffany were pronounced Mr. and Mrs! Such a fun and exciting way to have a wedding, I hope this is a trend that sticks around!  Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_47Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_47 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_1Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_1 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_6Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_6 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_2Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_2 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_7Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_7 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_3Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_3 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_4Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_4 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_9Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_9 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_8Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_8 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_26Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_26 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_5Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_5 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_12Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_12 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_10Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_10 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_11Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_11 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_25Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_25 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_34Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_34 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_13Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_13 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_14Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_14 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_15Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_15 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_16Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_16 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_17Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_17 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_18Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_18 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_19Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_19 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_20Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_20 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_21Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_21 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_23Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_23 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_22Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_22 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_24Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_24 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_27Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_27 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_28Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_28 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_30Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_30 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_29Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_29 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_32Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_32 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_31Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_31 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_33Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_33 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_46Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_46 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_36Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_36 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_35Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_35 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_37Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_37 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_38Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_38 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_39Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_39 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_40Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_40 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_41Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_41 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_43Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_43 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_42Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_42 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_44Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_44 Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_45Minneapolis_MicroWeddingPhotographer_45     A list of where the various wedding details are from:

jessalyn [senior] | carver county senior portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2020/8/jessalyn-senior-carver-county-senior-portrait-photographer Jessalyn absolutely rocked her senior portraits! We started in my studio for some art-themed photos, this girl is a talented artist! I loved the contrast of her dark hair against the yellow. She changed into jeans and a leather jacket before we headed outside for some brick and other types of urban textures. The bright sun made her eyes pop intensely! I think every single image ended up being my new favorite. The prints they picked out were absolutely excellent choices and were perfect to display for her graduation. Congrats, Jess!  MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_1MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_1 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_2MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_2 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_4MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_4 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_3MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_3 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_5MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_5 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_6MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_6 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_7MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_7 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_10MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_10 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_9MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_9 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_8MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_8 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_12MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_12 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_11MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_11 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_15MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_15 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_13MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_13 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_16MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_16 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_14MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_14     Looking for a fun senior portrait photographer to help you get these timeless memories printed and in your hands?

abernathy [maternity] | minnesota maternity photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2020/7/abernathy-maternity-minnesota-maternity-photographer Glowing with her baby bump, Ginny and her husband Nate and their dogs rocked their maternity portrait session in the golden summer sun. Everyone was all smiles as we talked about their upcoming move (thanks military life) and their excitement of welcoming their new babe. We reminisced on their wedding day, 10 years prior, as they were my first bride and groom! It felt very full circle to be taking their maternity photos of their first baby! This growing family ordered a stunning linen cover album to enjoy these amazing photos for years to come.  CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_2CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_2 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_4CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_4 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_3CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_3 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_1CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_1 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_5CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_5 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_6CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_6 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_7CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_7 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_8CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_8 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_9CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_9 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_12CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_12 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_10CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_10 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_11CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_11 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_13CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_13 CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_14CarverCountyMaternityPhotographer_14     Got a beautiful baby bump to show off?

His smiles came so naturally and I had fun listening to his plans for the future year ahead! His mom really wanted a picture with his cello so we found an area in the trees with some crunchy leaves to match the wood tones and it turned out really cool! I loved helping them select some stunning prints from this session to be enjoyed for years to come. Thank you for making my job easy, Henry!

fallin' in love | nick & lauren [engaged!] | norwood young america engagement photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/7/fallin-in-love-nick-lauren-engaged-norwood-young-america-engagement-photographer An absolutely gorgeous fall evening made for the perfect backdrop for Nick & Lauren's engagement portraits. This couple couldn't be any sweeter! Of course, their fur balls Hogan and Bellatrix were also included, and provided us with a lot of laughs! I've enjoyed getting to know these two over the last few years and they couldn't be any more made for each other. Nick is just a big teddy bear and smiles without hesitation and Lauren is such a spitfire! I was so excited when they booked me for their wedding day and was looking forward to this session! They picked out so many amazing high quality prints to decorate their new home with, the best kind of wall art if you ask me! Thanks for being so much fun and congrats on your engagement!  WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_2WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_2 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_1WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_1 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_3WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_3 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_4WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_4 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_5WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_5 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_6WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_6 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_9WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_9 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_7WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_7 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_8WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_8 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_10WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_10 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_11WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_11 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_12WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_12 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_14WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_14 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_13WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_13 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_15WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_15 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_16WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_16 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_19WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_19 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_18WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_18 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_17WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_17 WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_20WaconiaMNWeddingPhotographer_20     Looking for a fun engagement photographer?

vintage cop car wedding | andrew & ellen [married] | dyersville ia wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/6/vintage-cop-car-wedding-andrew-ellen-married-dyersville-ia-wedding-photographer It was a beautiful June day for Andrew & Ellen to tie the knot in a wonderful ceremony at the Basilica of St Francis Xavier in Dyersville, IA. The girls got dressed to the nine while the guys polished up their looks in navy suits. All of the details were so simple and came together so well, from the soft flowers to the blush pink bridesmaid dresses. After a sweet and excited first look outside the church, a family friend's vintage cop car showed up for bride & groom portraits - perfect for the sheriff deputy getting married. The wedding party & family looked great for their portraits and then it was time for the ceremony inside the stunning church. Once pronounced husband and wife, the new mister and mrs left to the cheers of their guests and hopped on a trolley to celebrate with their bridal party. After a few stops at some local watering holes, the party made it back to the reception hall, just in time for dinner, speeches, and the dances. This wedding was particularly special to me as the bride Ellen and I went to college together - and she encouraged me to pursue photography as a career! I have to give her so many thanks! This day felt incredibly full circle to me in that aspect. Congratulations, Mr & Mrs Reuter!  MinnesotaWeddingPhotographer_1MinnesotaWeddingPhotographer_1 MinnesotaWeddingPhotographer_3MinnesotaWeddingPhotographer_3

colorful spring wedding | joe & anita [married!] | minneapolis wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/5/colorful-spring-wedding-joe-anita-married-minneapolis-wedding-photographer A spring day in May was the perfect setting for Joe & Anita to tie the knot. I set up the couple's first look at a beautiful local park and everyone looked so spiffy all jazzed up for the big day. I adored the bride's colorful bridal bouquet - it included so many different types of flowers! And of course you can't go wrong with coral ties on the guys. Anita was beaming when she got to see her groom and the sun even peeked out from the clouds for a moment. After some portraits of the bride and groom we gathered up their wedding party for a few group photos as well. Then we headed to the Medina Entertainment Center for the couple's ceremony & reception. I loved the simple hoops and floral decor for the ceremony, which was officiated by the bride's brother-in-law. Once Joe & Anita were pronounced husband and wife, and sealed with a kiss, it was time for everyone to celebrate. I love that they chose to keep their guest list small and be able to talk with their friends & family. After a yummy dinner decorated with even more colorful blooms, and some fun speeches, it was time for the couple's first dance, which was so so sweet. They danced to one of my favorites, "At Last." Congratulations, Joe & Anita!

summer smiles | pheng [family] | minneapolis family portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/5/summer-smiles-pheng-family-minneapolis-family-portrait-photographer It was a beautiful sunny summer morning in July for the Pheng to take their updated family portraits. Little man Brady was so adorable with his wild hair! He wanted to explore everything and loved pointing out the puppies at the park. I loved his and his dad's matching boat shoes. They ordered a big beautiful canvas of a fun family portrait to hang in their living room, along with several gorgeous high quality prints.  EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_3EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_3 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_2EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_2 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_1EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_1 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_5EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_5 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_7EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_7 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_8EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_8 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_9EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_9 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_11EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_11 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_10EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_10 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_14EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_14 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_12EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_12 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_15EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_15 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_16EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_16 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_13EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_13 EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_6EdinaFamilyPortraitPhotographer_6     Looking for a fun family portrait photographer?

summer bride-to-be | brooke [bridal portraits] | waconia wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/5/summer-bride-to-be-brooke-bridal-portraits-waconia-wedding-photographer On a nice summer evening, bride-to-be Brooke got all dolled up in preparation for her wedding day to rock her dress, hair, and makeup before the big day! This portrait session truly gave her a chance to trial run all the fun details of her bridal look and have some photos taken in her bridal gown that wouldn't have been possible on her wedding day. She looked so beautiful! I loved her simple bouquet of white roses and of course her sparkly chandelier earrings.

love by the waterfall | aj & heidi [engaged!] | mankato mn engagement portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/5/love-by-the-waterfall-aj-heidi-engaged-mankato-mn-engagement-portrait-photographer Aj & Heidi had a beautiful summer evening for their engagement portrait session next to the rushing waterfalls. I met up with the engaged couple at Minneopa Falls Park just outside of Mankato, MN in the golden setting sun. These two had so much fun sharing more with me about their relationship, their families, and their wedding plans as I captured their portraits. Heidi's laugh is one of a kind, and Aj always keeps her giggling. We explored the paths at the park, using the stunning waterfalls, bridges, staircases, and other natural features for the perfect backdrops. These two ended up ordering a bunch of gorgeous prints and a beautiful photo cover album to show off their session.

summer sunshine with smiles | arribas [family] | eden prairie family portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/4/summer-sunshine-with-smiles-arribas-family-eden-prairie-family-portrait-photographer I have been blessed to have gotten to know this family over the years and capture their growing boys! I met up with the Arribas family on the most perfect summer sunshine night for family portraits at a park in Chaska. The boys had so much fun "feeding" the fish in the pond and saying hi to the geese. I enjoyed hearing about their adventures and how much these two brothers love each other. The youngest Finn has the most striking blue eyes, that were really brought out with his blue plaid shirt and the bright blue sky! Big brother loved showing off his missing front teeth! The family picked out the most perfect prints from their session to display on their walls and at the office. I can't wait to see them again for their next portraits!  ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_1ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_1 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_4ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_4 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_3ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_3 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_2ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_2 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_5ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_5 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_6ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_6 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_8ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_8 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_10ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_10 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_7ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_7 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_12ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_12 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_13ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_13 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_9ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_9 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_14ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_14 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_15ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_15 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_11ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_11 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_18ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_18 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_17ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_17 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_16ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_16 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_19ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_19 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_21ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_21 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_20ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_20 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_22ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_22 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_23ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_23 ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_24ChaskaMNFamilyPortraitPhotographer_24         I love having fun with families, exploring parks, and being goofy!

hi i'm new here | annabelle [newborn] | mankato newborn portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/4/annabelle-newborn-mankato-newborn-portrait-photographer Annabelle made her arrival earth-side at the end of June to two super proud and excited parents. Her dark hair and dark eyes were so stunning, what a cutie! Annabelle loves snuggles and walks and exploring the world around her. At just over a week old, you could already see her strong personality coming to light - this girl knows what she likes. Along with some sweet lifestyle portraits with her mom and dad, we included some of the baseballs from Annabelle's pregnancy announcement - perfect for these two sports fans. This family picked out so many great quality prints that look great on the walls of their home to enjoy as Annabelle grows!  MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_1MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_1 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_2MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_2 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_3MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_3 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_5MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_5 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_4MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_4 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_6MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_6 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_7MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_7 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_9MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_9 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_10MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_10 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_8MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_8 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_11MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_11 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_13MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_13 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_14MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_14 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_15MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_15 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_16MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_16 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_17MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_17 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_18MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_18 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_20MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_20 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_19MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_19 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_21MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_21 MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_22MankatoNewbornPortraitPhotographer_22         I love photographing babes in the comfort of your own home!

summer puppy lovin' | kevin & samantha [engaged!] | watertown mn engagement photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/4/summer-puppy-lovin-kevin-samantha-engaged-watertown-mn-engagement-photographer These two -- and their spunky dogs -- are the definition of fun! The sunset was absolutely perfect and the grass so green, it was an amazing summer night session for Kevin & Sam's engagement portraits! We first let the dogs get their crazies out before working on getting them to pose for photos - with the help of Sam's hilarious mom! If only there was a video of getting these dogs' attention, the antics that go into good dog portraits is amazing! We had a good time laughing with these funny fur balls before they scooted off for the human-only portion of the session. Kevin & Sam had so much fun laughing together and were naturals in front of my camera (even if they didn't believe me!). I loved hearing about their elopement planning that had taken place and was getting excited for their big day. They had the most perfect approach to wedding planning! After adventuring back into the trees for more smiles, we wrapped up the session. So much fun!  CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_1CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_1 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_6CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_6 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_3CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_3 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_2CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_2 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_4CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_4 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_5CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_5 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_7CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_7 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_8CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_8 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_9CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_9 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_10CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_10 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_12CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_12 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_13CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_13 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_11CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_11 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_14CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_14 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_15CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_15 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_16CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_16 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_17CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_17 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_18CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_18 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_19CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_19 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_20CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_20 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_24CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_24 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_21CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_21 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_22CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_22 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_23CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_23 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_25CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_25 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_26CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_26 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_27CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_27 CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_28CarverCountyEngagementPhotographer_28     Photo sessions are supposed to be FUN!

spring smiles | peterson [family] | chaska mn family portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/4/spring-smiles-peterson-family-chaska-mn-family-portrait-photographer On a mild spring day, I met up with the Peterson clan to take some updated family portraits. With the snow almost all melted, it was a nice afternoon to get some fresh air. I loved their coordinated navy blue outfits which popped off the neutral background of the trees & bushes. Everyone had fun laughing and joking around, many of these photo combinations haven't happened in years! Its always fun to capture families at times that aren't just weddings or other special events. Everyone ordered some amazing high quality prints of their favorite shots from this family session. So happy to provide my clients with a full service experience to family portraits!

sweet baby boy portraits | silas [newborn] | carver county lifestyle newborn photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/3/sweet-baby-boy-silas-newborn-carver-county-lifestyle-newborn-photographer After being sprung from a stint in the NICU for arriving early, Silas came to my Carver studio with his proud parents for his newborn portraits a few weeks after being born. This cutie pie had some amazing cheeks on him. I loved capturing all his details from his tiny little toes to his dark head of fuzzy hair! Once his belly was full he slept soundly in mom and dad's arms. Squishy little babies are so much fun! They ordered some amazing prints and a canvas from this session to remember their little peanut by. I'm enjoying watching Silas grow!  CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_1CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_1 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_2CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_2 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_3CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_3 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_6CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_6 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_5CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_5 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_7CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_7 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_4CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_4 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_8CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_8 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_9CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_9 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_10CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_10 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_12CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_12 CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_11CarverCountyLifestyleNewbornPhotographer_11     Welcoming a new addition into your family soon?

family of 5 | vos [maternity & family] | cologne mn maternity portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/3/family-of-5-vos-maternity-family-cologne-mn-maternity-portrait-photographer **This is Lewis' pregnancy just so no one gets confused!!!**

Preparing for the arrival of their 3rd child and first boy, the Vos family wanted to take maternity portraits to document this time in their life. Big sisters Natalie and Ella had fun squealing at the camera and copying what mom and dad were doing! It was a brisk afternoon at a gorgeous nature center that made the perfect backdrop for capturing these portraits. We turned these family images into a stunning photo book for the family to flip through for years to come. Cassy looked so beautiful with her baby bump and I'm so glad she wanted these moments captured. You always think you'll remember just how your belly looked while you were pregnant - but cell phone photos before you got to bed just don't do these baby bellies justice! Before we wrapped up, Cassy and I did some creative portraits its at my studio in Carver. Congrats Vos family of 5!  CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_1CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_1 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_2CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_2 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_3CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_3 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_4CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_4 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_5CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_5 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_6CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_6 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_7CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_7 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_8CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_8 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_9CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_9 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_10CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_10 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_12CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_12 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_13CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_13 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_11CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_11 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_14CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_14 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_15CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_15 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_16CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_16 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_17CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_17 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_18CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_18 CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_19CologneMN_MaternityPhotographer_19     I love photographing growing families!

two pilots in love | luke & lydia [engaged!] | chanhassen mn engagement photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/3/two-pilots-in-love-luke-lydia-engaged-chanhassen-mn-engagement-photographer Planning for their summer wedding, Luke & Lydia chose to do a winter engagement portrait session. We met up at Lake Ann Park in Chanhassen on a crisp afternoon, all the freshly fallen snow on the balmy day making for a perfect backdrop for this couple's smiles! I loved hearing about their adventures in flight and airport management, along with all the trips they've taken together. I had to laugh because the first time they met, Luke guessed how much Lydia weighed! (dangerous territory for a potential date..ha!) They were going up on a student flight and the weight is very precarious in small airplanes! This happy couple hit it off and traveled all over, taking long distance relationships to new lengths! Luke & Lydia ordered an awesome canvas from this session and lots of incredible prints that they have now displayed around their first home together. I had such a great time capturing the love between these two! (And I only biffed it in a snowbank once!) Congrats again Luke and Lydia!  MSPEngagementPhotographer_38MSPEngagementPhotographer_38 MSPEngagementPhotographer_37MSPEngagementPhotographer_37 MSPEngagementPhotographer_36MSPEngagementPhotographer_36 MSPEngagementPhotographer_35MSPEngagementPhotographer_35 MSPEngagementPhotographer_39MSPEngagementPhotographer_39 MSPEngagementPhotographer_40MSPEngagementPhotographer_40 MSPEngagementPhotographer_41MSPEngagementPhotographer_41 MSPEngagementPhotographer_42MSPEngagementPhotographer_42 MSPEngagementPhotographer_43MSPEngagementPhotographer_43 MSPEngagementPhotographer_45MSPEngagementPhotographer_45 MSPEngagementPhotographer_44MSPEngagementPhotographer_44 MSPEngagementPhotographer_46MSPEngagementPhotographer_46 MSPEngagementPhotographer_48MSPEngagementPhotographer_48 MSPEngagementPhotographer_47MSPEngagementPhotographer_47

Wayne & Betty have been married and have lived on the farm for countless years, just outside of Cologne, MN. Their smiles were so cute at each other. It was a chilly day but we made it work! All the outbuildings on the farm made for great backdrops of the various family groupings. Even some of the furry members of the family got in on the photo fun! Everyone had a fun time laughing and smiling together and of course cracking jokes and picking on their favorite uncle. Grandpa even got the tractor out for a photo. Everyone ordered some stunning prints from this session to enjoy for years to come!  CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_14CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_14 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_1CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_1 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_2CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_2 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_4CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_4 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_3CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_3 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_6CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_6 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_7CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_7 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_5CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_5 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_8CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_8 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_9CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_9 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_10CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_10 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_12CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_12 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_13CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_13 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_15CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_15 CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_11CologneMnFamilyPortraitPhotographer_11         It is always a good time photographing a family in a meaningful location, such as on the family farm!

He rocked a few different looks, from super casual to more polished, showing off his favorite watch. We talked about Spencer's aspirations for after high school, hoping he will follow in the aerospace footsteps like some of his family members. Spencer was so easy to laugh with and have in front of my camera. He ordered an amazing photo album to show off his session at his grad party and it turned out great!  MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_1MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_1 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_2MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_2 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_4MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_4 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_3MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_3 SeniorPortraitPhotographerMN_1SeniorPortraitPhotographerMN_1 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_5MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_5 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_8MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_8 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_7MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_7 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_9MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_9 SeniorPortraitPhotographerMN_2SeniorPortraitPhotographerMN_2 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_10MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_10 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_11MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_11 MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_12MinneapolisSeniorPortraitPhotographer_12         Looking for a fun & creative senior portrait photographer?

I don't think we stopped giggling the entire session. On the warmest winter day we had had in weeks, I met up with hilarious couple to take their engagement portraits. They are so fun to be around, I could've spent the whole night with them! We chatted about everything under the sun and went over details for their upcoming May wedding. The setting sun made for some absolutely stunning portraits. Before we could wrap up, they couldn't resist a snowball fight! They ordered the most stunning silhouette canvas of their favorite image from their session, along with a gorgeous photo cover album to show off these amazing portraits.

loads of fun | kurt [family] | dyersville ia family portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/3/loads-of-fun-kurt-family-dyersville-ia-family-portrait-photographer I've known this family for years now, since meeting Ellen as a freshman at Wartburg College. We were in band together and then found out we lived down the hall from each other. Over the years, I've gotten to know her family in Dyersville through several family portrait sessions and lots of family dinners around their dining room table! A sunny fall day during a recent trip to Iowa meant it was time for updated family pictures with the growing Kurt family! We went to one of their favorite local parks next to the river and worked quickly because it was a bit chilly out, even though there was no snow to be seen! Papa Kurt of course enjoyed laughing with all his girls! Per usual, big brother Ben picked on his two younger sisters. Just weeks after this session, Ellen & Andrew got engaged and I am so excited to be photographing their wedding this June!  IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1 IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1 IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1 IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1 IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1 IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1 IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1 IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1 IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1 IowaFamilyPhotographer_1IowaFamilyPhotographer_1     Looking for a fun family portrait photographer?

sunny winter engagement portraits | brady & devyn [engaged!] | nya mn engagement photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/3/sunny-winter-engagement-portraits-brady-devyn-engaged-nya-mn-engagement-photographer With Brady & Devyn's fall wedding coming up, we took advantage of a sunny winter day to capture their engagement portraits at locations just outside of Norwood Young America. These two are so easy to be around, I think we were laughing the entire session! I also gave them both a hard time for being so tall! Their easy going nature gave us some fantastic smiles and amazing pictures. Devyn's eyes are so striking, especially in the bright sunlight! Brady is so handy - he ended up making some barnwood photos for some of their prints from the session. They look great on the wall by Devyn's mounted walleye, caught while ice fishing with the boys! I had an absolute blast with these two! Thanks for the perfect afternoon.

snowy st thomas engagement | andy & allie [engaged!] | st paul couples portrait photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/2/snowy-st-thomas-engagement-andy-allie-engaged-st-paul-couples-portrait-photographer It was such a wonderful afternoon spent with this fun couple capturing their engagement portraits a few months before their wedding day. I met up with Andy & Allie at the Como Conservatory in St Paul to enjoy some warm temps and greenery, in the midst of a cold Minnesota winter. These two truly bring out the best in each other and their love is just contagious. They always enjoyed looking into each other's eyes and sharing with me what they liked about one another. Then we headed to where this couple's love story began - St Thomas University. There is a rumor that if you kiss under the arches, you wind up married. The arches were a perfect spot for some photos! It is so fun when couples choose meaningful locations for their portraits. Congratulations on your engagement, Andy & Allie!

winter wonderland wedding | nick & lauren [married!] | waconia mn wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/2/winter-wonderland-wedding-nick-lauren-married-waconia-mn-wedding-photographer The best day ever for the sweetest couple! Nick & Lauren picked a beautiful January day to tie the knot and all their details came together perfectly. The bride got ready at her beloved Grandma's house, just down the road from the country church were the ceremony was taking place. The couple's first look was sprinkled with the most perfect snowflakes falling lightly from the sky! It was just about magical. They wrote each other the sweetest letters to read prior to their first look. (cue the tears!!!) After some portraits, we headed down the road and rounded up the wedding party & family for group photos outside the stunning historic church. The ceremony started off with laughs due to the antics of the ring bearers and flower girl. Then all eyes were on the bride! The pastor's message related Nick & Lauren's engagement story - they got hit by a huge wave on the pier immediately after Nick proposed - to life and their married relationship. Once they were pronounced Mr & Mrs, the newlyweds were whisked off on a bus to celebrate with their wedding party. The immaculately decorated reception venue was so gorgeous - all the red flowers and rustic wood pieces really set the tone for the evening. We couldn't resist sneaking in some sunset photos - running out into the chilly temps was so worth it! The speeches brought out lots of laughs and tears and then the guests danced the night away to a fun DJ! Congratulations, Nick & Lauren Jorgenson! It was an absolute joy & pleasure capturing your first official day of your happily ever after!

spring sibling portraits | vienna [6 month photos] | minneapolis family photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2019/2/spring-sibling-portraits-vienna-6-month-photos-minneapolis-family-photographer The Bretzel kids are growing faster than ever! What a joy it is to see their personalities and quirks come to light. This spring session with all three siblings was so much fun. Of course mom had to dress the littlest Vienna in one of her heirloom dresses from when she was a baby. What a fun and thoughtful idea. Big brother Archer has fun corralling his two little sisters. Laine looked so adorable in her French braids. Love seeing these smiling faces!  MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_3MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_3 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_1MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_1 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_4MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_4 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_3MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_3 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_4MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_4 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_5MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_5 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_7MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_7 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_6MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_6 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_8MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_8 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_9MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_9 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_10MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_10 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_12MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_12 MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_13MinneapolisFamilyPhotographer_13     I love capturing the ever-changing personalities of your kiddos!

I loved how he rocked too-big-for-him suspenders and of course you can never go wrong with denim overalls either. Fur sister Penelope even got to come to the studio for some photos. She loves to lick her tiny human brother! Its so fun watching this little guy grow! Happy 6 months Silas!

autumn wedding | aj & heidi [married!] | fairmont mn wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2018/10/autumn-wedding-aj-heidi-married-fairmont-mn-wedding-photographer AJ & Heidi's fall wedding day was full of a lot of splashes of color and fun personal touches. I arrived to the Fairmont Baptist Church as everyone was getting ready for the big day. The maple trees out front were so vibrant! I loved Heidi's red heels that she added lace to as a fun detail. The guys played some video games to loosen up before the ceremony. Heidi's sister and matron of honor did the bride's hair and makeup. Before the ceremony, the couple prayed together without doing a first look until Heidi walked down the aisle. In keeping with the fall theme, the flower girl threw leaves from a pumpkin before the bride's entrance. AJ was so excited to see his bride! The couple wrote their own personal vows to each other which was so touching and precious. Once pronounced husband & wife, the newlyweds exited the ceremony with their guests throwing cherry blossoms! Outside, we took all the formal portraits of the couple, their families, and members of the wedding party in the afternoon sunshine. We took advantage of the colorful maple trees before heading to the reception at Interlaken Country Club. I loved the surprise Heidi set up for AJ - the back of their cake was superhero themed! Following the funny speeches, it was time to hit the dance floor. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Salazar!

fall colors wedding | brady & devyn [married!] | carver county wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2018/10/fall-colors-wedding-brady-devyn-married-carver-county-wedding-photographer Brady & Devyn tied the knot on a colorful Saturday in October. I met up with all the ladies at Devyn's parents house where the hairspray and bobby pins were flying. All of Devyn's details were so beautiful and meaningful - I loved the stories behind the charms she attached to her bouquet and that her veil was her grandma's. Check out that sparkly floral clip! Once the ladies were all dressed, we headed out to a picturesque family friend's farm for the bride and groom's first look! What a super sweet moment to witness and be blessed to capture. Devyn had gotten Brady a custom-made fishing lure for the big day. The old barn made a beautiful backdrop for some portraits of the bride and groom. The sharply dressed wedding party then joined us for some fun group photos including lots of laughs, with the amazing fall colors in the background. After we wrapped up the family portraits, we headed to All Saints Lutheran Church for the wedding ceremony. Once pronounced husband & wife, the newlyweds danced their way out of the church to the cheers of their friends & family! A party bus then whisked the couple and their wedding party off to celebrate at a bar before arriving at the Hamburg Hall for the beautifully-decorated reception. The groom built an entire barn wood wall, complete with lights and a door, for behind the head table! It looked so cool! Following dinner and the speeches, it was time for the crowd to dance the night away to a live band. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Buckentine!  NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_6NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_6 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_3NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_3 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_1NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_1 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_2NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_2 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_8NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_8 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_5NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_5 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_7NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_7 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_4NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_4 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_9NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_9 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_10NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_10 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_11NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_11 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_13NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_13 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_14NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_14 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_15NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_15 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_16NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_16 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_17NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_17 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_18NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_18 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_21NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_21 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_20NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_20 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_24NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_24 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_12NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_12 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_19NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_19 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_23NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_23 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_25NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_25 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_22NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_22 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_26NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_26 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_28NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_28 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_27NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_27 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_29NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_29 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_31NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_31 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_32NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_32 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_30NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_30 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_33NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_33 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_34NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_34 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_35NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_35 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_36NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_36 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_37NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_37 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_40NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_40 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_39NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_39 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_38NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_38 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_41NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_41 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_42NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_42 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_43NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_43 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_44NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_44 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_45NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_45 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_46NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_46 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_47NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_47 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_50NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_50 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_49NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_49 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_48NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_48 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_51NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_51 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_52NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_52 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_53NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_53 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_55NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_55 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_54NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_54 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_56NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_56 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_57NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_57 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_58NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_58 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_59NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_59 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_60NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_60 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_63NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_63 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_61NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_61 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_62NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_62 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_64NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_64 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_67NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_67 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_68NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_68 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_69NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_69 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_65NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_65 NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_70NYAMNWeddingPhotographer_70     This wonderful wedding day could not have been possible without the help & expertise of the following vendors, services, and people:

sunny september wedding | brooke & derek [married!] | mankato mn wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2018/10/-brooke-derek-married-mankato-mn-wedding-photographer Derek & Brooke's September wedding day was nothing short of incredible, a day filled with love and hope. Starting off at the Gustavus chapel, I began capturing the details - I loved the softness of Brooke's dress and of course the pearl jewelry! Once dressed, it was time for Brooke & Derek's first look. The bride did a first look with her dad outside the chapel, who then escorted his daughter to her waiting groom. What a sweet moment this was to witness! There is no doubt that these two were made for each other. The sunny morning on the Gustavus campus was a perfect setting for portraits of the bride and groom, who were eventually joined by their excited wedding party and family. Then we all headed back inside for a prayer and to prepare for the ceremony. The chapel was an absolutely perfect space for this meaningful service. After the exchange of vows and rings, Derek & Brooke were pronounced husband & wife to the happy cheers of their guests. I don't think their smiles could've been any bigger! We then headed to the ballroom at the Courtyard Marriott in Mankato, which was impeccably decorated with sparkly silver candle holders and twinkle lights. After arriving from the party bus, Derek & Brooke surprised their wedding party by being introduced first and then roasting their bridesmaids and groomsmen - it was hilarious! The laughs continued into the evening as the crowd enjoyed the funny speeches. Then it was time for the first dances, which are always a special moment of a wedding day. Before wrapping up, I snuck the newlyweds outside for a few photos in the fleeting sunset light. Congratulations again, Mr. & Mrs. Wilfahrt! I am blessed to have been your wedding photographer.

summer nature center wedding | luke & lydia [married!] | hastings mn wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2018/8/summer-nature-center-wedding-luke-lydia-married-hastings-mn-wedding-photographer Luke and Lydia had the most wonderful wedding day to celebrate becoming husband and wife while surrounded by their friends and family. I met up with the bride and bridesmaids at Cross Roads Church in Cottage Grove after their hair and makeup appointments on a beautiful Saturday in July. Starting off with the details, Lydia's dress was so soft and romantic and paired perfectly with her suede blue heels. The succulents in her bridal bouquet made for a stunning ring photo, the lines of the engagement ring almost mimicking the shape and qualities of the greenery. The groom even got to wear his grandpa's watch for the big day. Then it was time for everyone to get dressed and for the couple's first look on the sunny day. Luke & Lydia were so happy to see each other, it was such a sweet moment to capture! We took the opportunity to get some portraits of the sharply dressed couple before getting some wedding party group pictures. Then it was time to head inside for the ceremony. As the newlyweds were pronounced husband & wife, the crowd cheered and they left with happy smiles on their faces. Once the marriage license was all taken care of, we headed out to the stunning Carpenter Nature Center in Hastings for the reception. We rounded up the families & wedding party once the cake was cut (with the cutest cake topper ever - perfect for these two pilots!). Before it was time for dinner, we couldn't resist grabbing some bride and groom portraits with a cheerful field of yellow flowers. Dinner provided by The Rack Shack was delicious! (You can't go wrong with beef brisket, pulled pork, and corn bread!) Luke & Lydia then had their first dance as a married couple as the sun began to set, followed by first dances with their parents, respectively. Prior to wrapping up the evening, the best man and man of honor entertained the guests with speeches, full of laughs and advice. Special thanks to my second shooter Emily J. Davis for her help photographing this day. It was such a joy capturing the first official day of the Werner's happily ever after!

under the willow tree wedding | kevin & samantha [married!] | chaska mn wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2018/7/under-the-willow-tree-wedding-kevin-samantha-married-chanhassen-mn-wedding-photographer Goodness, what can I say about this amazing day? From my first meeting with bride-to-be Samantha, I felt like we were fast friends, bonding over our love of dogs and endless laughter. After many years together, Kevin & Sam were planning an exciting getaway to Alaska - that impending trip prompted them to decide to turn it into their honeymoon and tie the knot on the Thursday before they left! Arriving to the Arboretum, Sam and her mom Kim were looking fabulous and already having the best day ever. The details came together so perfectly with a lot of hard work from the ladies of Lilacs & Lace! I especially loved the inclusion of grouse feathers and Alaskan white roses in Sam's bouquet. Kevin arrived and after many attempts at tying his tie, we found a random gentleman to help instead! I took the sharply dressed couple out to take advantage of the many backdrops the Arboretum has to offer for some wedding day portraits. A favorite spot was by waterfall with pine trees which felt very Northern Minnesota/Alaksan-esque to us! These two are so easy to photograph together, it was a joy to take their portraits. After trying to avoid some rain showers that kept popping up out of nowhere, we headed down to the Weeping Willow Garden for the ceremony. Under these draping willow trees was the most perfect spot for an intimate wedding ceremony! There were plenty of laughs shared and cheers as Kevin & Sam were pronounced husband and wife! Such a perfect and low-key way to celebrate these two. The green gardens made a great backdrop for a variety of group photos and a few more portraits of the newlyweds before heading to Lola's Lakehouse in Waconia, MN. The reception space was set up so beautifully with soft greenery, bundt cakes, and a surprise wooden puppy portrait for the couple. A delicious dinner was served as the guests enjoyed each other's company and even some speeches. Of course we couldn't end the day without some sunset portraits on the docks. Congratulations, Kevin & Sam! It was truly a joy to capture your unique wedding day!

colorful summer wedding | michael & chelsea [married!] | cologne mn wedding photographer https://www.orangeafphotos.com/blog/2018/7/colorful-summer-wedding-michael-chelsea-married-cologne-mn-wedding-photographer It was a beautiful Saturday in July for Michael & Chelsea to tie the knot in a fun day of celebrating with their friends and family in style. All of the details Chelsea picked out were perfection - from her colorful bouquet to her sparkly shoes! The groomsmen all looked sharp in their navy suits. The bridesmaids rocked some beautiful long lace-topped bridesmaid dresses in a gorgeous pink/purple color of the perfect shade. After the ladies helped Chelsea get into her stunning dress, it was time to see her groom. We did the couple's first look outside to soak up the nice summer day. I always love witnessing couples seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day. Chelsea & Michael then read the letters they had written to each other, it was so sweet. Following some portraits, we wrangled upthe colorful wedding party and families for some group photos. Everyone looked great and was having so much fun. Then it was time to head inside for the ceremony in the beautiful St Bernard's Catholic Church. Once pronounced husband & wife, with cheers to the couple's first kiss, the newlyweds and their wedding party were whisked off to celebrate on a horse-drawn carriage (perfect for this animal-loving pair!) The Cologne Community Center was decorated so wonderfully, with touches of gold, flowers, and candles everywhere. After a very yummy dinner, the speeches from various members of the wedding party had everyone laughing! We snuck the bride and groom outside for a few portraits in the golden sunset before everyone danced the night away (with a lot of ice auger moves!) Special thanks to my second shooter Emily Davis for her help capturing this amazing day.
