Charlie + Brent // Engagement // Post by Melissa

Charlie and Brent's Minneapolis engagement session consisted of many locations that were meaningful to their relationship. These two had their first date on the Minneapolis Trolley, and spend a lot of time around the lakes, and in the book store. They just bought a new home together which will be their wedding location come August. Their excitement for this new adventure is bursting with joy. I couldn't be happier for the two of them!

Kyle + Carina // Wedding // Post by Maggie

This was an amazing wedding! I grew up with Kyle and Carina in the Philippines, and can still remember Kyle and my younger brother playing after school and coming up with crazy adventures. I was so impressed by the people Kyle and Carina have grown up to be. Carina mentors young Filipino girls and Kyle works with a team designing and building houses for the poor in the Philippines. Their day was the perfect celebration of their love for each other and their love for others. Congratulations Carina and Kyle!

Rachel + Laura // Post by Melissa

Rachel and Laura's engagement story begins when Rachel's show #RelationshipStatus was chosen for the Minnesota Fringe Festival. Leading up to the end of the show Rachel popped the question to Laura. How fitting is that?! Their infinite love for theatre, books (especially Harry Potter), Star Wars, and their dog George Lucas shined throughout their engagement session. Happy for these two to be getting married in October!


Ted + Mayra // Post by Maggie

Ted and Mayra got married in Oakdale and had their reception at the Crowne Plaza in St. Paul. Mayra and Ted had their legal wedding ceremony last year so this was all about celebrating their love and marriage with their friends and families, who ALL traveled from out of state and out of country to be their for the celebration. It truly was a beautiful example of two cultures and two families coming together because of love.

Lulu + Bin had an intimate, modern wedding with closest friends and family. Guests enjoyed walking through the sculpture garden and viewing the art galleries before the ceremony. Gather served drinks and everyone was encouraged to take part in the slow motion video booth after the ceremony. Everyone enjoyed great food, conversation and dancing the rest of the night. An absolutely perfect day.

I love small intimate weddings that truly reflect on the couple. This one reflected on their adventure in life together, and the love they have for one another. I am so happy for these two, and I feel very honored to have been able to document their special day!

Jim + Amy // Post by Ryan

Jim and Amy's wedding at Libertine in Uptown Minneapolis was intimate, romantic, and perfect for their friends and family to celebrate with them. We truly felt the love and happiness this couple shares not only together, but between their loved ones. I was so honored to be apart of this special day. Cheers to Jim and Amy!
