Olympic Hills Golf Club Wedding Eden Prairie MN Photos | Amanda + Dan

So excited to share the day I spent photographing Amanda and Dan’s wedding! They were married at the Olympic Hills Golf Club in Eden Prairie MN on August 2nd. The day couldn’t have had more perfect weather. The Golf Club had an outdoor ceremony in front of a small pond near the clubhouse surrounded by amazing trees and scenery. We were also able to take some time to travel over to the nearby Staring Lake Park to take some of the bridal party photos there too. Such a fun day! Thank you so much, Amanda and Dan, for working with me on one of the biggest days of your life. I wish you every happiness as you join your lives together!

Big Wood Brewery Engagement Photos MN | Alice + Chris

“We’d like to take our engagement photos at a brewery.”

“A brewery???? How AWESOME!!!!”

So went the exchange between myself and Alice + Chris when I asked if they had any location ideas for their engagement photos. I was so excited – photographing an engagement session in a brewery? What a dream! Chris is a beer distributor, so it definitely fit them and their love of beer.

We had an amazing time photographing at the Big Wood Brewery in White Bear Lake. The people there were so kind, and the location itself was beautifully crafted. The name Big Wood was taken from the fact that they used wide variety of different reclaimed woods to build up their space. The bar was from a fallen tree, all tables were slices of wood, the walls were reclaimed barn wood, and the doors were absolute works of wooden art (you can see a few in the photos below.)

Thanks again, Alice + Chris – it was a joy to spend time with you and get to know you more and see your deep connection to each other. I am so excited to photograph your wedding in October!

Round Lake Eden Prairie MN Engagement Photos | Safiyyah + Rory

What a gorgeous day for an engagement photo session! Safiyyah and Rory recently moved into the neighborhood and live only a few blocks from Round Lake in Eden Prairie, so it seemed to be a natural fit to spend our time in some of their favorite spots. They even recently got a new puppy, so they’ll probably be getting to know the park much better in the near future.

Safiyyah and Rory, I’m so happy for you both. Your warmth, laughter and obvious love for each other was so charming, I can’t wait to see your wedding day. Thanks so much for including me as a part of it!
