Alex & Katie - St. Paul, MN

I have treasured getting to shoot for Gina Zeidler for the past few months that I've been in Minneapolis. Working with her and her couples is always such a treat, and Alex and Katie were no exception. We had the chance to shoot in Gina's studio, which was just down the street, for A & K's first look, and I practically died when I saw the beautifully light we had to work with. Pair that with an unbelievably in love couple and you have a killer combo!

First looks and the heartfelt, intimate images I get to preserve during them are undoubtedly a favorite of mine. The sweet moment of excitement, soft laughter, and anticipation steal my heart. Being able to preserve those encounters is an incredible gift. 

Here's a peek into their beautiful first look & wedding day details.

With a few minutes and all of these bouquets to myself, I shot some of my favorite detail images to date. The killer color palate and incredible textures won my heart.
