Arens Wedding – Sept. 26, 2014

What an amazing day, Sept. 26, 2014. Arens Wedding at the Arboretum.

Watching Jeff and Lisa with their three boys you could just see the love and compassion shine through. The wedding was intimate with just very close family and friends celebrating the joining of these two people creating one couple.

The support of the three boys in their dapper attire was to die for. With the guests and the guest visitors of the wild turkeys just made the day perfect. The weather was perfect as well, a little breeze and the sun shining through the trees. You could not have had a more beautiful day.

Chanhassen Senior Pictures

Allyson was an amazing women and great to spend time with. She knew what she wanted to do and where she wants to go in life. That is so refreshing.

Talk about a great smile and personality. The light hit her eyes and just sparkled which made her personality shine through all the more. Allyson was a great 2015 senior to work with. We went to the Arboretum in Chanhassen and just had a blast walking around and having fun.

Moving into that next stage in life can be scary and challenging at the same time. Having your senior pictures taken is kinda like a right of passage for a teen moving into adulthood.

What a beautiful day for portraits taken.

Emily’s Graduation pictures! 2015 Graduate

Senior pictures – Graduation and the entire process of growing up is like a right to passage in becoming an adult. For myself it is amazing to be able to capture these young adults at that moment in time.

It was a lot of fun taking picture of Emily’s Graduation pictures. We traveled to The Mill City Ruins and to a local lake in Victoria MN.

She was so energetic and adventurous. Graduation pictures are a stepping stone in life. A right of passage to the next step of life.
