I wanted to push my creative boundaries and try something new. So I went out into the the woods and did the opposite of what I normally do during a photo shoot. I liked it!
I’ve been photographing some boudoir sessions lately and I have to tell you it’s soooo awesome! Working with incredible women and helping them see how fabulous they are is so rewarding. I just wanted to share a little peek of a recent shoot. Nothing over the top crazy, just some modern, real life, beautiful art. :)
I first met Kaitlin and Mike over skype! The two downloaded it for the first time ever just to talk with me and I’m SOOO glad they did. (Thanks guys!) After discussing whether to meet in Minneapolis or near the lakes, the stars aligned and last minute we met downtown St. Paul, just blocks from where BOTH Kaitlin and Mike grew up. We had a real life meeting at the incredibly cool W.A. Frost Restaurant! Right away I could tell that Kaitlin and Mike go hand-in-hand. They’re true adventurers with giant hearts and they’re FUN. We spent a couple hours grabbing drinks and exploring the streets before heading to the old water tower where Mike proposed!! I’m excited to photograph their wedding this fall.
Ooooh, it was a perfect day in Italy for a wedding! Helge and Hilde were such a lovely couple and I had so much fun spending the day with them, 6 of their closest family members and their 2 adorable little boys. Spending a week with your closest family and children is a perfect way to enjoy your wedding and life life to its fullest. The wedding was planned by Bryllupsbyraaet of Norway, who has beautiful exclusive locations in Italy, Czech Republic, Ireland, and Norway.
After breakfast and getting ready at the villas, we drove to Malcesine and strolled the cobble stone streets. Like a fairy tail, they were married is the Malcesine castle! The whole group took an incredible 2 hour boat ride on Lake Garda back to Bardolino for dinner, dancing and of course some amazing Italian cheese, olives, and vino! Ooooh, bring me to Italy any time!!
TUSEN TAKK Helge og Hilde for letting me be apart of your special day! I truly felt like family. : )
Nothing can beat delicious gelato and a gorgeous bride in the colorful streets of ITALY! The other week I had an INCREDIBLE time photographing a beautiful Norwegian model in Northern Italy, on Lake Garda. Whoa is right!!!! It was so much fun roaming around the city of Bardolino and the absolute amazing hotels and exclusive venues with Cathrine of Byrllupsbyraaet. Cathrine is one of the FIRST wedding planners in Norway. We’re working on showing how weddings can be something extra amazing and that it’s possible to have your dream wedding! Benedicthe is getting married next month and is also an awesome fashion designer and blogger. A special thanks to Brudesalongen i Stavanger for loaning us the beautiful Lusan Mandungas wedding gown for the shoot…and for letting us fly it all the way to Italy.
