As much as I love working with new folks, it is just as fun to capture close friends.

The Boock family are near and dear to my heart, and very loved in my house. It was my pleasure to capture them with my camera this year!

Check out the cute, silly and lovely faces we made together. ๐Ÿ™‚

A few years back it was my pleasure to take part in a fun & creative shoot out at the World Forestry Center.ย 

The shoot was a great way to get out and stretch our creative muscles on the “off season” and do a fun protect with a group of local wedding vendors. The shoot was picked up on “Ruffled Blog” and just recently I was asked again for use of the images by an online Magazine called “Sweet Violet”. You can see their latest issue online here, our photo is on page 119. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh man what cuties the Cook boys are! I have known Amber from around town for a while now, so it was such a pleasure to capture her boys on a bright fall morning recently. We meet up in St. Paul, talked about babies, trucks and kindergarten, and made some photos of this darling family.

Check out a few of my favorites from our morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

It is always fun to catch up with the S family, but this year we really lucked into some fun times. We spent the morning running around one of my favorite small towns, found some beautiful fall color, and generally made bad jokes & giggles. The boys have grown so much since last year!

check out a few of my favorites…

Aside from the lack of food fighting, Erica & Jered’s wedding was pretty damn amazing.

They held the big event at the stunning Vista Hills Vineyard. Filled the big day with amazing food, wine, music and people they loved. I love that they did not get over concerned about the whole typical wedding thing, forgoing the traditions they did not want to participate in, and just made it one great party. The whole day had their personal stamp all over it, and was a joy to point a camera at.

Alex and I had a great time capturing this one!

Check out a few of my many favorite images from the day.
