Cassy + Ryan | Brainerd Engagement Photography


Brainerd, Minnesota | 2019 Venue (Ceremony and Reception) – Luminary Fern

Due to the weather it took us a few reschedules for Cassy and Ryan's engagement session, but boy oh boy did we get a beautiful fall day when it finally worked out! We used my studio at Northern Pacific Center as our base camp (which I typically do on portrait days) and spent time utilizing the unique backgrounds and surround area. I loved photographing these two - they are super sweet and so excited for their wedding in Luminary Fern in fall 2019!

Brainerd Engagement Session | Heather + Ryan

I am SO excited for Heather and Ryan's winter wedding at The NP Event Space.  Between Heather's gorgeous smile (and outfits!) and Ryan's loving gazes - these two made it through their engagement session like seasoned pros.  We had quite the interesting day with a mixture of the forest fire haze, humidity, crazy storm clouds and then a return to the haze...their wedding photos will be quite the contrast this January!  Heather and Ryan - thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your engagement session! 

Ashley & Jeremy | Brainerd Engagement Photography

I'm not going to lie...I was slightly bumming about the weather going into Ashley and Jeremy's engagement session. And then we started shooting and the sun let a few amazing rays shine through and the slightly slimy side snow turned into some of the most beautiful flakes I have ever seen.  So it pretty much the best day creating some of my favorite images ever.  ;)Ashley and Jeremy - I am SO excited for your wedding at NP this July and can't wait to photograph your gorgeous smiles and love in slightly warmer weather!

Elise + Brett | Brainerd Engagement Photography

As I look out the window at the light coating of snow, I can't help but remember the warmth and beauty of Elise and Brett's fall engagement session.  The colors, the trees, the sun - the setting was all so perfect at Brett's grandpa's property just outside of Brainerd.  And I might be a little bit in love with Elise's ring and amazing style (that polka dot sweater - my fave!), but most of all - their sweet engagement story remembered with mugs from Java Moose and Grand Marais.

Chloe and Andrew | Brainerd Engagement Photography

I can't wait for Chloe and Andrew's private residence wedding next year! These two are so incredibly sweet and seriously look like they should be on the cover of the Eddie Bauer...so beautiful!  We spent a summer evening on Andrew's grandparents property where they will be married.  Thankfully the rain held off just long enough for us to get some amazing images, including the fun shots with Chloe's dad's teal Bronco.  Chloe and Andrew - I CANNOT wait for your wedding in August!
