SYDNEY + PATRICK // FARGO ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

February 25th, 2015

Living in the midwest we tend to get a little annoyed with the long, cold winters. But as much as I love to complain about the frigid temperatures, I have to admit, the beautiful snow does provide a stunning back drop for portraits. Sydney and Patricks’ engagement session fell on a ‘warmer’ day and I could not be happier with the way their images turned out. So soft and gorgeous! I’m loving these colors. And just so you know, Patrick, I am totally watching re-runs of Shark Tank as I post this. Enjoy : )

    When I think of Kristin and Kyle’s engagement session, it puts a huge smile on my face. These two are so adorable and lovely together. Their session was filled with so much laughter, I loved it! Their Fair Hills Resort wedding is bound to be incredible and I cannot wait! Enjoy : )

      SARAH + JOE // FARGO MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER

      February 18th, 2015

      I am so happy to share something different with you all today. A maternity session! After having Abram and experiencing my own pregnancy, I have really developed a love for everything baby! Because of this new found passion, this year I plan on accepting more portrait sessions during my slower months. Bring on the babies and pregnant mommas!!

      My good friends, Sarah and Joe, are expecting their first little bundle of joy very soon! Can you believe Sarah is 38 weeks pregnant in these photos?? So not fair!! She is glowing and absolutely stunning. I adored her outfits for their session, especially her cute little belly accessory that she made herself. I am so excited for Abram to have a little friend to play with and maybe take to prom in 17 years? Congratulations, Sarah and Joe! I cannot wait to meet your sweet baby girl when she arrives.

      Cheers,

      Emily

        February 12th, 2015

        Finally! Another wedding from last fall to share with you all. Alex and Erin’s Carrington wedding was absolutely stunning. It happened to fall on a rather chilly autumn day, but you can hardly tell by the smiles on their faces. They were such troopers for making it through the afternoon outside. I adored every little detail. Erin’s family farm provided the perfect back drop for their portraits, too! I am incredibly honored to share these beautiful images from their day with you all. Congratulations, Alex and Erin! I hope you two love birds are enjoying married life.

          I’M BACK

          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.

            KAYLA + DAVE // FARGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

            October 24th, 2014

            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

              LINDSEY + LOGAN // FARGO ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

              October 22nd, 2014

              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 : )

                VERONICA + ANDY // FARGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

                October 15th, 2014

                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! : )

                  October 15th, 2014

                  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,

                    MEGAN + KYLE // FARGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

                    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,

                    Emily
