Katie+Derick {Bismarck, ND} Colorado Wedding Photographer

Katie & Derick are as sweet as they come. I knew after doing their engagement photos that their wedding would be a good one! Their little girl Harper stole the show as flower girl, and I may have teared up during their first dance when she joined them and snuggle between them. You can tell how important family is to these two, and you could see how proud their family and friends were all day long. This group was a favorite of mine to work with; they’re pretty much all hilarious. The whole day was full of sweet, laugh-out-loud, memorable moments. Congrats again Mr. & Mrs. McClintock! I hope your first year of marriage was amazing.

Whitney+Brad's stylish & romantic engagement shoot {Voss, ND} Colorado Wedding Photographer

One of the prettiest shoots ever, I swear. I did my sister’s engagement and family photos last April and have been sharing them slowly over time, and finally decided to just blog SOME of my favorites. It was hard to choose just a few. I’ll never stop loving these photos! We took them back where Whitney and I grew up, which is one of our favorite places in the whole world, and that makes these even better. We also had the most gorgeous sunset-that always helps too. All-around perfect!

Devan+Courtney's laid-back celebration {Moorhead, MN} Colorado Wedding Photographer

Courtney & Devan’s wedding was so chill. I would work with them again and again and again…plus, they’re family, which made it even better! They’re such a laid-back couple that even if the day hadn’t gone perfectly, they wouldn’t have cared. They got married June 22nd, 2018 at Rustic Oaks in Moorhead, MN-a perfect venue choice for these cool kids. Olive Branch Botany created the gorgeous florals. Spitfire from Fargo, ND catered, so I was a happy camper since they’re a favorite of mine too! Some other highlights: TWO wedding dresses (both ahhhmazing-Courtney used to work at Alan Evans Bridal in Moorhead), a fly-away veil, an emotional mother-son dance, a memorable maid of honor speech from Courtney’s sister Bailee, and an erratic golf cart ride from yours truly. All in all, it was a pretty spectacular day, and one of my favorites from 2018. Thanks again for choosing me as your photographer and congrats again Mr. & Mrs. Schuler!

Parker+Kassy's rustic celebration {Jamestown, North Dakota} Colorado Wedding Photographer

Kassy & Parker had the most perfect western-chic wedding in June 2017 and it was a hot one! Well, they’re a hot couple and it was like a thousand degrees outside. It took place outdoors at the Frontier Village and Gladstone Inn in Jamestown, ND. It was the perfect setting for their style. These two are such a kind, down-to-earth couple and ridiculously photogenic couple; it was a dream working with them and their family and friends as well! It was an awesome day overall and is honestly a favorite of mine to look back on. Congrats again Mr. and Mrs. Lipetzky!

Becky+Brad's small-town ceremony {Carpio, North Dakota} Colorado Wedding Photographer

The first wedding of 2018 was small and very sweet. Brad & Becky got married at a little church in Carpio, a tiny town in North Dakota, on a perfect spring day in early May. This little church is very important to Becky. Her grandfather helped build it, so I was happy to capture some special images within it. They celebrated with close family and friends and allowed me to tag along to document their special day. I was so happy to be part of this intimate wedding and wish Mr. & Mrs. Brekke all the happiness in the world!

Chelsey+Matt's epic, snowy wedding {Bottineau, North Dakota} Colorado Wedding Photographer

So, Matt & Chelsey got married last November and the weather decided to throw us a bit of a curveball. It was maybe 20 degrees and everything was covered in snow! They took everything in stride and completed outdoor photos like absolute champs. They embraced a whimsical yet classy theme for the day, and everything looked gorgeous! I Do Balloons out of Minot, ND styled their reception space, which looked magical. I am so happy Chelsey & Matt picked me to spend their blissful day with them. Congrats again to Mr & Mrs. Norby!
