Katie & Dan | Van Dusen Mansion Wedding

Katie & Dan were such a great couple to work with. I’m always so lucky to be able to shoot with such down-to-earth, genuinely loving couples, who are beautiful on the inside and out. Speaking of beauty on the inside and out, the Van Dusen Mansion in Minneapolis is a fantastic place to get hitched for sure. It offers so much history, variety, and classic charm. Katie & Dan’s reception was one of the most energetic and awesome ones that I’ve been a part of. The dancing, laughing, and singing at the top of the lungs went strong from the moment we entered the space. It was epic indeed.

Old Faithful Under Moonlight

The perks of proximity… My schedule had me out west to shoot an engagement session in Colorado, and to shoot 4 shows of the Nicholas David & The Avett Brothers tour in the Pacific Northwest. Once their tour leg had ended in Missoula, Montana I was able to sneak over to Yellowstone National Park for a really quick first visit.

On a very late October evening I sat quietly for 90 minutes, under the glowing stars of Yellowstone, waiting to see Old Faithful blow for the first time. I had the camera settings all dialed in for the gorgeous night sky when, unexpectedly, the moon began to break, and rise perfectly over the mountains, pouring on the gorgeous moonlight, just as Old Faithful began to blow. It was one of those magical moments where you just stand in awe of the beauty and wonderment of this world. =D

*If this kind of photography floats your boat I do share a decent amount of other landscape images over on my Facebook page and one here too.  I plan on adding a section to this site with a bunch more of my Landscape work as well, if I can ever catch up on my client work.  =D

Nicholas David Wedding

Krista & Nicholas tied the knot yesterday and I had the honor of shooting their big day.  Their wedding day has been a long time coming as they had to put it off (originally planned for 2012) due to Nicholas’ amazing run on NBC’s The Voice.  This was extra special for me as Nicholas and I go way back, and are brothers from another mother.  The ceremony took place at Macalester College in Saint Paul and the reception followed at the Minnesota Zoo.  Here’s a quick peek at some of the fun and beauty of yesterday.  More images to come…
