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. Scroll to find the highlight images from their wedding day <3
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.
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 […]

I went to Paris last weekend. Casually went to Paris. I never, ever thought those words would come out of my mouth. My friend Emily found this dress while we were shopping in Saarbrücken a couple months ago. She found it as we were walking out of T.K.Maxx and immediately said that it would look […]
