LOGAN + LINDSEY // FARGO ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

January 26th, 2015

I’M BACK!!! After three months of silence on the blog, I am finally back to blogging! On November 4th, we welcomed our sweet baby boy, Abram, into the world. He is such a joy and I love being his mommy! I’ve quickly learned how tricky it is to get things done around the house, especially when it comes to blogging. Many days I find myself bouncing on an exercise ball with Abram while replying back to emails on my laptop with one hand. It’s definitely not easy, but totally worth it. We are slooooowly starting to develop a routine, if you can even call it a routine, so I am attempting to get caught up with my weddings and engagements from October to blog and share with you all. Thank you everyone for your sweet comments about Abram’s arrival. We greatly appreciate it.

I cannot think of a better way to get back to blogging, than to share with you some of my favorite images from Logan and Lindsey’s Rustic Oaks engagement session. These two love birds are seriously the most photogenic couple ever!! And can I say, gorgeous?! They made my job incredibly easy and I had such a great time getting to know them more during their session. The love they have for one another is undeniable! I cannot wait for their wedding this fall. Enjoy! : )

 

 

 

Cheers,

    I am still obsessing over Kayla and Dave’s wedding and it’s almost been a month since they officially tied the knot. Their wedding was seriously a dream from top to bottom. I adored every single detail of their day from the florals (hello, succulents!) to the table runners. Kayla and Dave had a smaller wedding at Grand View Lodge and it was absolutely stunning. I loved how intimate their day felt. It was truly an honor to document.  Grand View Lodge provides a breathtaking backdrop. I love shooting there and get so giddy about going back there. I was lucky enough to go there twice this summer and both times were absolutely perfect! Congratulations Kayla and Dave! I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do! : )


    Okay, I just HAVE to say it! This moment below is one of my absolute favorites of all time! During the ceremony Kayla and Dave read their personal vows to one another. While Kayla was reading her vows, she began to choke back tears. It was the sweetest thing to witness Dave pull her in closer and reassure/comfort her. It was so raw. Their foreheads met and this beautiful moment was snapped. LOVE IT!! You could truly tell how in love they were during this moment, I seriously had the biggest smile on my face.

    Cheers,

    Emily

      Words cannot begin to describe how adorable Lindsey and Logan are together! Their love just oozes out and their smiles are so incredibly infectious. I loved spending the evening out at Rustic Oaks with them to document this special time. Rustic Oaks is one of my absolute favorite locations to shoot at, especially in the fall. Just check out these stunning colors and light!! So warm and beautiful. We made sure to maximize our time and got so many cute photos, they were so hard to narrow down. These two were super photogenic and willing to roll with my goofy ideas. I am so thrilled with the outcome. I had a big smile on my face the entire time I edited their photos. Lindsey and Logan, I am so excited for your wedding next fall! It is bound to be stunning and a fabulous time. Enjoy : )

        I am so proud of myself for getting caught up with my blogging. This week is by far the busiest week of my season. In seven days I have 4 engagement sessions and two weddings, all while I’m 38 weeks pregnant! WOAH!! One great thing about being this busy during my pregnancy is the fact that it has made the time fly by. I can’t believe in just two short weeks *hopefully*, we’ll be meeting our baby boy!!

        Today I am so happy to share Veronica and Andy’s breathtaking wedding at Five Lakes Resort. I adore this location! It provided the perfect back drop for their rustic wedding. I just loved the detail on Veronica’s dress and all of the reception decor. Everything tied together so perfectly! During the reception Veronica and Andy were sweet enough to leave for a few minutes to capture some dreamy shots down by the water. Sunset photos are some of my favorites!! The yummy lighting at that time of day makes for some fun and romantic “we just got married!!!!” shots. Congratulations Veronica and Andy! Your day was absolutely beautiful and I feel so lucky to have been a part of it. Enjoy! : )

          Yay for fall and yay for engagement sessions! I absolutely love this time of year. The colors and the weather are my favorite. Lauren and Zach were kind enough to meet me in Detroit Lakes to do their engagement session and I would say it was absolutely worth it! The fall colors were in their prime and despite the overcast skies, the weather was beautiful! These two were full of fun ideas and so easy to photograph! I’m so excited for their wedding at Thumper Pond next summer! Enjoy : )

          Cheers,

            October 13th, 2014

            I am on a blogging roll this week! Yay! I’ve got a plethora of beautiful images and stunning couples to share with you. Today I’m thrilled to share some of my absolute favorites from Megan and Kyle’s wedding day. These two high school sweet hearts were in my graduating class. It was so fun to witness them tie the knot in my hometown! I always enjoy going back home for weddings as it offers a sweet little walk down memory lane. Kyle and Megan’s day was filled with lots of laughter and adorable little details. Who would have thought 8 years ago…..(yep, I’m that old)….that I’d be documenting your wedding day! So crazy! Thank you so much Megan and Kyle for choosing me to be a part of your day! Enjoy : )

            Cheers,

              KARA + BRET // FARGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

              October 12th, 2014

              I have only two more weddings left for my 2014 wedding season. I can’t believe how fast this season has gone by! I am so thankful to have had such great pregnancy that has allowed me to document all of these beautiful weddings. This year I was fortunate enough to be a part of 29 weddings, my biggest year yet! But with an incredibly busy wedding season, blogging becomes slightly challenging. I have several more weddings and engagement sessions to share with you all and today I am so happy to give you a glimpse of Kara and Bret’s lovely wedding day!

              Kara and Bret’s beautiful day was filled with laughter and adorable details. We did the majority of their portraits at the location where Bret proposed, which was this cute bridge at the park. The sun peeked out and made for some stunning photos of the newly married couple. Thank you so much Kara and Bret for letting me document your special day. Enjoy : )

                October 9th, 2014

                Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, especially this year! It was a humid summer and shooting so many weddings in the heat while pregnant really drained me. But once the beautiful fall weather hit, I got a little boost of energy to finish out my wedding season. These cooler temps, no mosquitos, and stunning colors are so refreshing!

                Kayla and Trevor’s Rustic Oaks engagement session fell on a beautiful evening. Unfortunately, the mosquitos were out in full force and quite awful. But you wouldn’t be able to tell by the smiles on their faces. These two were an absolute joy to photograph. Thank you so much Kayla and Trevor for braving those terrible mosquitos to get some adorable shots! I had so much fun spending the evening with you. Enjoy : )

                Cheers,

                Emily

                  STEVI + JUSTIN // FARGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

                  October 3rd, 2014

                  This summer was filled with many ‘firsts’. Stevi and Justin’s wedding happened to be the first time I have had the opportunity to attend a wedding at the Red River Zoo. I was so excited to see how their day would turn out in such a unique setting. I was not let down, that’s for sure! Their day was quite an elegant affair. I was really loving how their day looked in B&W, so classy and dreamy! There were lots of  fun elements and details including a carousel, peacocks, ponds, and antlers. I loved it and I think their guests did, too. Thank you so much Justin and Stevi for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful day. Enjoy : )

                  It was so fun having their dance outside with a live band!

                  Cheers,

                    AMY + JOE // FARGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

                    September 30th, 2014

                    Amy and Joe’s wedding was absolutely breathtaking. This was my first time at the Meadows on Lind and I fell in love with their spectacular venue. This is seriously the perfect setting for any outdoor wedding! I enjoyed every minute there. It was a photographers dream that offered so many beautiful backdrops. Joe and Amy filled the day with stunning details, which were so fun to capture. I adored the chalkboards and all of the reception decor. I feel I can’t do this wedding justice by attempting to describe it. The best way is to show you just how amazing their day was. Congratulations Amy and Joe! Enjoy : )

                    Cheers,

                    Emily
