Berg & Chi

My husband and I are so excited for Berg and Chi's wedding this spring! I'm double excited that they picked me to be the one to photograph their wedding!

Here are a few of my favorites to share with you! Congratulations Berg & Chi! See you both very soon! - Jodi

Baby Griffin

Welcome baby Griffin! He's too adorably cute! And he's even flexing a little muscle here too. I love new baby expressions. He didn't so much like the light but once we darken the room more he was loving it and showing us his beautiful eyes. Here are some of my favorites! Congratulations Sherri & Kevin!!!

Cassie & Mike are married!

I was so excited to be a part of Cassie and Mike's wedding. When I met Cassie out to discuss details about their wedding we chatted for two hours without even noticing the time...and I forgot to drink my hot chocolate waiting. They are perfect together and I think it shows in their photos too. They also have a love for classic cars which some of their guests brought to the wedding and made for some fun photo! Congratulations Cassie & Mike!!!

There are many more to pick from but here's a start! Congratulations Carolyn & Jake!!!

Kristin & Scott ~ engagement shoot

Welcome to Kristin & Scott's engagement photos! These two are picture perfect together. I had so much fun walking around St. Anthony Main taking pictures of them. There was some construction going on that day so we were given the open road in that area which almost never happens. I can't wait to capture their day a little less than a year from now! Congratulations Kristin & Scott!

Paige and Zak compliment each other so well. I don't think their details from the day could have come together any better either. We took full advantage of many of the spots at Northwestern College where they were married. Enjoy some of my favorites!

Stacey & Nick ~ engagement shoot

Fall in the cities is one of my favorite seasons! Stacey and Nick picked Saint Anthony Main for their shoot and I loved the colors we captured. They are adorable together and we had fun walking around Main street. There is nothing better than a warm fall day. We even had a visit from some ducks in the background. Congratulations Stacey & Nick! I can't wait for your wedding next year!

Sydney ~ newborn

I love babies! And looking at little Sydney I'm sure all of you do too. She was a perfect little girl to photograph. At only five days old she did her part and slept through most of the shoot. She also managed a couple of smiles and yawns (as well as a diaper or two). I've selected a few of my favorites. I'm sure you will all fall in love with Sydney. Congratulations Jenell & Jeremy! She is beautiful! Thank you for taking the time to capture her at her tiniest!

Christina & Pat are Married!

Welcome to some of my favorites from Christina and Pat's wedding last month! The ceremony was at the Saint Thomas Chapel and the reception at the Graves 601 Hotel. Everything was beautiful! It ended up being a rainy day but cleared for part of it so we were able to still take some photos outdoors. Christina looked absolutely breathtaking in her wedding gown (I know Pat agreed!). I've gathered a few favorites here to share part of their day with you. Enjoy! Congratulations Christina & Pat!

Shannon & Alex are married!

When I first met Shannon & Alex I was so excited that they were getting married at the Gale Woods farm. It's a beautiful property and they had all the plans in the works for a fun celebration. However...we had rain for part of the day and had to move the ceremony indoors. Luckily the sun came out and we were given the most beautiful sunset! A big thank you to Shannon and Alex for choosing me to be a part of their Big Day! Your day was filled with family, friends and lots of fun! Congratulations!

Congratulations to Morgan & Eddy! The day was beautiful and so was everything about it. They were married and celebrated at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

Jaxson ~ One Year old!

Meet Jaxson! He is our adorable little neighbor across the street. My girls are going to have so much fun playing with him as they get bigger together. Isn't he adorable! He has the best expressions and man can he walk. I think it's so cute when kids just start walking. They want to explore everything and Jaxson is really good at keeping his mom & dad on the go. Happy Birthday Jaxson!!!

I'm loving the weather we are finally getting to enjoy! It makes me very excited for Dawn & Trevor's wedding later this summer. Of course it was one of the hottest (muggy-like) days so far this year. We decided it was good practice for an August wedding and both Dawn & Trevor did great with it! I love to capture the fun playful side of relationships and it was very easy to capture with them. I hope you enjoy a few selections of my favorites!

Maggie & Andy ~ Los Cabos!

I've been dying to post this blog for some time now. Now I've finally finished the gallery and can't wait to share it with everyone. Especially Maggie and Andy! I met Maggie and her family over a year ago when she asked me to join them in Mexico to shoot their wedding. I was so excited (and my husband Mike was just as excited that I had him join us too)! I may have posted a lot here but it was very diffiicult for me to narrow them down. For anyone that wants to see more (you really should check out the dance photos :-) can contact me for the gallery information. Thank you so much to Maggie, Andy and their entire group of family and friends! Everyone was so wonderful and inviting that it made everything even more special. Congratulations Maggie & Andy!!

I think its great when we can combine what my couples love together into their engagement shoot. I loved the Twins photos and how well Carolyn & Jake did in the very cold weather we have been having.

Sydney is One!
