Lakewood Memorial Chapel Wedding Photography

Vintage Chapel Wedding Minneapolis Photographers, Bridal Couple in black and white

 I am so happy to be sharing this  Lakewood Chapel Wedding Photography with you.  Bryan and sweet Kelli’s love was celebrated in a beautiful intimate ceremony . The Ceremony was held at the Lakewood Memorial Chapel Wedding in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Lakewood Chapel  is an historic place that stands out for its architecture and  interior design. The Lakewood Cemetery, the Mausoleum and the Gardens, all are truly iconic,  with a true modern style, being so close to Minneapolis lakes, it’s considered a Must see in the Twin Cities . It should really be considered a Must get Married at, as it is spectacular!  Brian and Kelli chose it to celebrate their big day!

An what a celebration it was for Brian and Kelli! The city view, their joyous personalities, the gorgeous display of art in the Chapel and the charm of Jax cafe. It was great to be there to document their wedding day,  and to witness the love this two have for each other. Everyone invited was infected with Kelli’s beautiful laugh and smile, even the party was as joyous as can be.

The rain added an endearing look, as we were able to bring the umbrellas to the portraits!Kelli’s amazing sense of style , as well as her passion for the arts was reflected in all of the details with a glamorous twist.  I was in awe with Kelli’s rose tinted dress, as well as the beautiful birdcage veil.

Outdoor Minnesota Wedding at Sibley Park

Meghan and Dom’s Wedding at Sibley Park

So happy to be sharing the photos of Meghan and Dom’s Wedding at Sibley Park, in the oh-so-colorful town of Mankato!

Since ever I met this pair, they have been my #relationshipgoals. Besides a couple, they are also true friends to each other, have fun all the time and are great parents to top it all. Their wedding at Sibley Park was a beautiful celebration in the town of Mankato, Minnesota. Shortly arriving at the AmericInn I met with Meghan, and her beautiful dress ! Just in time before she put it on!

We then headed to the adorable Sibley Park, where their first look took place. This was also where their ceremony was held a little later.  I love how these photos reflect their personality, most of all, and their brilliant attitude in life. With a beautiful couple in set, some beautiful willow trees, and just the right amount of sunshine I knew we were good as far as photos. I can’t forget to mention the spunky bridal party, so happy they were so much into epic photos!

The ceremony was filled of laughs, smiles, inside jokes and perfect words by both Dom (who is an excellent writer) and Meghan. Their happy little son is the perfect example of how effortless (or at least they make it seem pretty effortless) is to be happy 🙂

For the rest of the night, that’s what we were, happy, dancing humans that cheered the night away.

Enjoy the photos!

Don’t miss their engagement photos !

Minneapolis Summer Engagement Session

Summer Engagement Session in Minneapolis, Minneapolis Wedding Photography

There is a magic in this Minneapolis summer engagement session that I can’t make justice with words. The happy engaged couple, the light, the fresh breeze all around!

This photo session was so fun and so chill at the same time,  just like Bonnie and David. Their love is joyful and paused, like when you sip your coffee to make it last. Their way of looking at each other is as sweet as can be, and the way they find shelter

For their engagement photos they chose the Nicollet Island park, a really urban park, with multiple spots and beautiful walkways. I couldn’t feel any more happy to be able to share this moment in their lives, and celebrate their love!

Minneapolis Summer Engagement Session, Twin Cities Wedding Photogs

Perhaps you can’t see my smile, but behind the camera I was smiling big time! If I am able to spend more of my time photographing couples in love, I will be the happiest photographer in town!

I really like some of their creative side that shows on these engagement session photos, I encourage my couples to be spontaneous! I am also always trying to make my lovely clients feel at ease, have fun and love each other!

Modern Wedding at the Van Dusen Mansion

Wedding at the Van Dusen Mansion

This Wedding at the Van Dusen Mansion was short of a fantasy. The Van Dusen Mansion is a dream place. This is one of the weddings you wish it never ends, everywhere you looked there was beauty and joy. In the laughter and hugs, in the amazing mansion air. Minneapolis mansions are little palaces full of character that are just meant to get married in 🙂

Lindsay and Ross are such a wonderful pair ! Their love shines through and through. There wasn’t a moment one of them wasn’t giggling or just bursting with joy, it was absolutely contagious.

It was our honor to be there to capture these moments for them. Enjoy!

Vintage Style Wedding at Nicollet Island Pavillion

 Twin Cities Wedding Photographers Nicollet Island Pavilion, Bride and Groom portraits

Courtney and Mike are a Wow couple. This was their WOW wedding!  The breathtaking view from Nicollet Island in Minneapolis was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony. The Stone arch bridge was astonishing in the back, and even with the rain menace, the day was pure sunshine.

They danced and walked down the aisle to the sounds of Ho Hey, by The Lumineers and happily expressed their vows in front of their teary eyed friends and family!

The ceremony and reception was such brilliantly styled by the Bash Collective , with the spotlight being he wonderful chandelier that Courtney’s dad made for her , filled with poppies and gorgeous summer flowers.

From start to end , the day was full of fun details that highlighted their fun and quirky personalities.

Lifestyle Newborn Photographer – Mattea

Minneapolis Family photographer, Minneapolis Lifestyle Newborn photographers, Minnesota Lifestyle photographer

This was such a blessing to hear from A and J, inviting me to their home to meet their lovely daughter. We had a lovely  photo session in the city two years ago, when they traveled to Minneapolis, and well, they finally moved to town! What a beautiful family and how lucky is his big brother!

My love for family sessions welcoming a baby grows each time I get the chance to photograph a family in their own home, in their natural setting and in a relaxed way. My favorite portraits are always the parents admiring and loving their baby! Baby Mattea was an easy breezy baby during her session. Loved her sweetness. Can’t wait to see her grow!

Such is life in the Midwest

Flower Minneapolis Spring“Where are my gloves?” You will hear me ask at least twice a day. I am still not used to having to put so many things on, but here I am perfecting the practice of living in a snowglobe.

There aren’t “layers” where I come from. In fact, there is only one kind of  sweater or “sueta”. No heavyweight, lightweight, rain jacket, puffer jacket, all you need to be protected from the cold in Costa Rica is something with sleeves.  I didn’t even know what wool was except that it came from sheep, but now I know all my fabrics. I can tell you really quick what’s a base layer, how awesome thinsulate can be and yet, I am still learning.

But not everything up here is snow. When the snow melts and the spring has sprung I start to notice what this seemingly eternal winter actually does !  It creates a crave for the outdoors you won’t see anywhere else. Not only the trees start to bloom, the furry animals show up in the yard, but everyone gets very, very active. The lakes are full, the playgrounds too, the streets and coffee shops are filled with happy people. We go for nature walks, hikes, strolls, sit outside to talk, make early fires and throw things in the grill. This part I love! I have learned to enjoy being outside so much more after my first Spring. My feet itch to go step on some leaves and let the sun come into our houses.

Nature has created this easy way to make us retreat, and I must admit, sometimes it’s not the best for our moods but in our retired houses we become dormant. But we can also bloom and take this time to get stronger.

What do you do to withstand winter ? What is your ritual that helps you become stronger in Spring?
