Megan & Brian - Wedding | Grand Superior Lodge, Two Harbors, MN

It was an extremely sunny day for Megan and Brian's wedding at Grand Superior Lodge.  I think I got sun burnt.  Leaves were a little past peak, but there was still plenty of fall color on the shore.  We met down at the pier in Two Harbors for their first sight.  Did a few pictures with the wedding party by the lake, then headed back to the lodge for the ceremony and reception.  The wedding party was all kinds of crazy, and the dance was a party.  We even had a full moon to finish off the night.  You can see their engagement session here.

Here's a few images from their day!

Lacey & Nick - Engagement | Stone Arch Bridge, Minneapolis

Met Lacey and Nick for the first time in person for their engagement session down on Saint Anthony Main in Minneapolis.  Things just seemed to come together just right for this one.  The lighting was amazing and the leaves were just starting to change.  Looking forward to their wedding next year!

Tiffany & Nate - Trash the Dress | Saint Paul, MN

Our good friends and fellow photogs Tiffany and Nate of Tiffany Lynn Photography wanted to do a trash the dress/anniversary/we-didn't-get-great-wedding-pics type of session.  A lot of planning went into this and while we didn't end up in the mud, or water, or a completely spontaneous paint fight, we DID manage to rip Tiffany's dress, so we got the "trash the dress" part down.  This was probably one of the most fun photo sessions ever.

Amanda & Brian - Wedding | Bluefin Bay Resort

We headed up to Bluefin Bay resort  one more time this season for Amanda and Brian's wedding day.  It was a little chilly, but we avoided the rain and the sun took a bit of the edge off.  We even had a rainbow for a few minutes right before the ceremony.  We never get tired of the beauty of the north shore.  There's always something new to see and the changing seasons, weather and lighting always shows a new side.  You may remember Amanda and Brian's engagement session in Minneapolis this past spring.

Here's a few from their wedding day!  Full gallery can be seen here.

Julie & Mike - Engagement | Minnehaha Park, Minneapolis

Julie and Mike's engagement session at Minnehaha Park.  Had a great time with these two, and we're looking forward to their wedding next year!

Grace & Tim - Wedding | Grand Marais, MN

Grace and Tim's wedding was our 100th that we have photographed.  Wow how time flies!

We had shot Grace's sisters wedding about 4 years ago, and have worked with her mom for the past few years as the event coordinator at Bluefin Bay resort.  Grace and Tim's wedding was planned to be entirely at her parents home but the weather radar was looking ominous, so there was a last minute scramble to relocate the reception indoors.  Even with the big change in plans the outdoor wedding ceremony was pretty much on schedule, and the rest of the day went without a hitch...  with beautiful weather.  ;-)  We had a great time and got some great images of a beautiful couple.

Megan & Joe - Wedding | Duluth, MN

Megan and Joe had a very intimate wedding ceremony on the shore of Lake Superior with family and a few close friends in attendance.  Joe and the guys played a round of golf in the morning while the girls were at the salon.  The morning started off beautiful, sunny and hot.  As the day progressed, the clouds started rolling in and as we finished up a few shots after the outdoor ceremony a light rain started falling.  Perfect timing for that as it was time to head inside for the reception and dinner.

You can see their engagement session last spring here.

Thank you Megan and Joe for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day!
