The Crane EstateIpswich, Massachusetts

One of my favorite places to shoot weddings is at private estates! In Minneapolis I loved shooting at The American Swedish Institute & The Glensheen Mansion and I am so excited to be back on the East Coast because of the large amount of estates here in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Cape Cod, Rhode Island, and beyond! Wedding venues that are private estates usually have so much detail and character that you just can’t get at a normal wedding venue.

I was so excited to visit The Crane Estate in Ipswich, Massachusetts during early Spring. At first you think that it’s just the strong, stately, European inspired mansion with it’s light red brick that is the highlight of the grounds but as you walk around you’ll start to notice that every inch of entire grounds have intricate details etched into them and are meticulously cared for. There’s a lawn, dappled with statues, that rolls on for what seems like forever into the ocean, a private white sand beach, an oversized chess board, another building down further on the lawn with perfect stairs and landscaping, and views of the ocean from almost every side. The perfect spot for a classic and elegant wedding that will entertain and wow your guests because of the sheer history and uniqueness of it.

From a wedding photographers point of view, this venue is nothing but a dream! With a million different backdrops for portraits, a vacant beach for intimate shots of a bride and groom, large open spaces made perfectly for bridal parties and family formals, and the never ending lawn that is perfect for hosting cocktail hour this venue has so much to offer.

California Inspired Engagement Session | Ali & Lou

Ali & Lou. Photographing these two was probably the easiest thing I’ve ever done. It’s not always easy to be comfortable in front of the camera let alone look like you’re in love but these two were so truly infatuated with the other that I think they often forgot I was there.

I love this location that we shot at. With the rolling hills and the tall grass this location reminded me so much of sunny California setting but we were actually just right outside of Minneapolis.

So excited to be a part of their September wedding!

Boston Wedding Photography VenuesBoston Public Library

Oh, Boston, how I love you. Back Bay and Beacon Hill are not only a lovely area to take a walk in but they’re also amazing spots for engagement and wedding photos. With it’s historic buildings and blooming trees you’ll receive a bunch of different backdrops with walking just a few blocks. One of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Back Bay is the Boston Public Library. It’s stately, European, historic, and so romantic! Your guests will thank you when they realize that they can walk from their hotel to your venue and not have to deal with parking.

I recently spent a day at The Boston Public Library photographing it, being awestruck by the interior and exterior architecture, and having afternoon tea with the beautiful courtyard as my view. I’m so excited to shoot weddings at the library. If you’re getting married in Boston at the library or elsewhere I’d love to chat. Send me a note.

Midwest Styled ShootThe Machine Shop, Minneapolis, MN

One of my sweet friends and former owner of La Vie Charme, a luxury wedding planning service, decided she wanted to focus more of her attention on her law practice and on developing The Creative Counsel, a law service for creatives and small business owners, and sell La Vie Charme to Ashley of The Simply Elegant Group. To go out- and in- with a bang they decided to do a few styled shoots that really expressed the truest nature of the brand. I felt so honored to be asked to photograph one of the shoots!

This tablescape was one of my dreams. The lovely ladies of Kindred Blooms outdid themselves yet again and arranged the floral in a way that all I kept thinking was that I was in a Danish still life painting with rich, deep, autumn colors. Such perfection!

All the other vendors brought their A-game as well and Minnesota Bride magazine took notice and featured this shoot in their Spring/Summer 2017 issue- it’s on newsstands now so go grab one!
