My good friends, Kelsey and Cameron, came to town earlier this week from Minot for their engagement photos! I met Kelsey back in college, and I'm pretty confident in saying she was one of my worst influences. Also very confident in saying she was one of my best influences! I won't get into the worst influence part for the sake of professionalism, but as far as the other part, this girl is an amazingly talented graphic designer. She would text me questions about assignments, which would actually just remind me to do my homework (whoops). Whether it's a design problem, or a life problem, to this day I can always turn to turn this girl for help. We even spent a month in NYC together attending a Parsons Design School summer course!

Winter is my slow season.. Who really wants to stand outside when its -10 degrees out? Definitely not me. Recent life events, along with this years freezing cold slow season, has left me feeling super uninspired lately.
Last month I decided to change that. I hit up my go-to hair and make-up artist and an amazing local florist I've been dying to work with, and we started scheming a shoot for Valentine's weekend. I anxiously awaited to see what kind of magic Kelsey (Crabapple) and Jessica (Glance) would create, and I definitely wasn't disappointed when the day finally came. These two are absolute must haves for you wedding day! Although we have a major shortage of mountains, canyons, desert, etc., I'm excited to have found these two new locations and add them into my rotation.
Now onto this sweet couple.. Jess & Houston are some of my closest friends and I literally jumped for joy when the agreed to be apart of this shoot. They were married last summer and I can 100% say I cried like a baby while standing up on the alter with them. These two are basically super humans and put the rest of us to shame. Jess is kind, nurturing, always dresses to kill (like she could go from kayaking to clubbing in two seconds), sensitive, yet fierce, and quite possibly the strongest woman I've ever met. Houston is funny, the ultimate protector, and has a quiet strength about him (like he could probably flip a car to save a child, but would never tell anyone he did it). He basically reminds me of an old school sitcom dad, or superman, or both. On top of all of that, they're model-status hotties and spend their date nights lifting weights. I'VE TYPED THIS 18 TIMES AND I'M STILL NOT DOING THEM JUSTICE. (sometimes I type in caps to yell at myself and then delete it, but I feel like you guys needed to know this) Together they're an unstoppable, stronger as a whole, than two halves. I have no doubt they can conquer anything the world throws at them, all while being their humble selves. The love these two have for each other is inspiring and I couldn't be happier to witness it grow.
Also, I didn't realize how obsessed I was with these two until I started typing this. Your creep-ometers are probably off the charts, whoops:)

Do you guys remember that big hurricane that hit the Florida coast back in October? Well that just happened to coincide with Carley and Jordan's wedding week. Luckily, they were married up in the Gulf, rather than Miami or somewhere else affected. I don't even remember how many frantic texts and calls I received asking if I was okay, but it was a lot. Anywho...
The Metzger's had 75 of their closest friends and family surrounding them for the most beautiful beach ceremony. If you're thinking about a destination wedding, don't think, just do. These two lovebirds were wed at the Margaritaville Hotel, and were blessed with perfect weather. The photos speak for themselves, so prepare yourself for a long post full of happy tears.
Can you believe these photos are from early November... in NORTH DAKOTA?! As I'm typing this, we have like 18 inches of snow outside.. but its been a few weeks! Brittney and Chad were so fun and put up with all my crazy ideas. Happy one year anniversary you two!
Any couple that is down to chug a marg with me before their session gets an A+ in my book! We had amazing weather on the perfect summer night and they even let me talk about my dogs while we waiting for the perfect light. The love between these two was absolute fire and I was so honored to capture it for them! So excited for these two to tie the knot!
