While the weather was still horribly cold, I met up with Gordy and Samantha for their engagement pictures in Downtown Fargo.Read More
As a wedding photographer, I like to think I'm in the business of telling love stories. Every love story is worth sharing. My clients', your parents', and yes, my own! This is part two of a three part series recounting my love story. Hit up the "How We Met" post for the first part, and The Proposal with the Nightmare Ending for part two.
My wedding was nothing like what couples dream of. My wedding wasn't even what I dreamt of. A series of unfortunate surprises led Tjay and I to our unconventional wedding.

Every couple’s love story is unique. A favorite perk of being a wedding photographer is that I get to hear to many different love stories. Then, I get to be a special part of the continuation of that story. How cool, right?
I know I’m biased, but I adore my love story. I find myself reminiscing bits and pieces to my clients whenever I’m with them… and since every love story is worth sharing, I’ve decided to dump the whole thing right on my website. It's a great time for it, too, since our anniversary is less than a month away!Read More
Every once in a while I'm scrolling through some social media feed or blog, my jaw set tight. Glaring at the screen. Frustration bubbling up inside me while self doubt pulls my heart down.
Why am I trying? I'm not where I want to be. Everyone else seems to "get" it, but I'm still back here...
I know, objectively, that we all feel this way sometimes. That we're not good enough, that we should be better, that we should call it quits.
Wait. Call it quits? No way. No. Way.Read More
To me, these are the moments that matter. These moments are the ones that confirm for me that this is love, that this person is my partner, that we care for each other. Quiet moments are where the magic happens.Read More
