When I think about an October wedding…I think about the crisp air, autumn colors, and beautiful weather.  I imagine Casey may have had similar thoughts while planning her wedding.  Well as usual, Minnesota was unpredictable and we ended up with a terribly cold day with snow!  Lucky for me, I had a wedding with a […]

A few weeks ago, I tried to photograph A+T’s engagement session.  Unfortunately, the rain and wind was just too much for us.  I told them I didn’t want them to get just “ok” photos so we decided to reschedule.  On the morning of the rescheduled date, we had snow on the ground.  Since the session […]
