7 Vines Vineyard – Zack + Ashley Babcock | Minnesota Wedding Photographer

I had the honor of being the photographer for a family friends wedding at the beautiful 7 Vines Vineyard that is located in Dellwood, Minnesota. I could start off by telling you about the wedding day but I am actually gonna give a little back story.


I met Ashley and her family back when I was probably 9 or 10. Somewhere around that time frame. My aunt and uncle live down the street from the Peter’s family. My aunt and uncle had a boat on the St. Croix and that was where we got really close to the Peters. We spent almost every weekend out there. At the time, my family only had a speed boat and did not stay out on the islands like they all did. Then in 2005, my parents upgraded the boat and that’s when we got to know the Peters even more.


Flash forward to this year, I got photograph Ashley’s wedding. To me, there is a big difference between photographing a wedding for someone you versus someone you don’t. The wedding feels more sentimental and you feel even more connected. I got to attend this wedding not only as a photographer, but also as a guest. I am so thankful that Zack + Ashley trusted me to capture their wedding.

Ashley received this beautiful bracelet from her sister Isabell to wear on the wedding day <3

Ashley knew that Zack had a surprise gift for her but she didn’t know what or when she would get it. After their first look, Zack surprised her with her wedding band that was not supposed to get in on time. It ended up coming the day before. Just in time for the big day.

A little backstory before product photography came into my life…   I started really getting into photographing other people when we were in Florida in 2015. We then moved to Maryland in December of 2015 and that is when my business grew. I had regular clients, weddings, second shot a lot of weddings, and finally began […]

I remember how terribly inconsistent I was with poses during an engagement session back when I started photography and my oh my..   Do you remember Anna? Back in July of 2016 I was invited to a styled shoot by a friend 30 minutes before it started. I ended up getting stuck in traffic on […]

One thing I have learned from this quarantine (as a family photographer) is that there is always more work that can be done to work on your craft. Even if that does not include shooting. I am going back through older sessions and came across this session with my best friend Natalie of Natalie Grace […]

If you are stationed in Germany, you have most likely been to Burg Lichtenberg at least a handful of times. This is one of my favorite castles to go to for family sessions. The kids love to run around and play and the adults can really take in the scenery around Burg Lichtenberg. Going to this […]

What is the first thing an engagement photographer thinks of when a client says they want to do their photos in Washington DC? Sunrise. Daily I go back and forth between whether or not I like sunrise or sunset better. I have to say though after Julie + Jordan’s engagement session, I prefer the lighting […]
