Tina & Andrew are getting married tomorrow so in honor of their big day I thought I’d share their engagement photos on the blog! When I found out it was going to be well below zero for Tina & Andrew’s engagement session, I suggested we use the Guthrie Theater for their Engagement Photos. We photographed their engagement photos at the end of December when Minnesota experienced some sub zero weather, so we had to get creative and limit our outside time. The Guthrie Theater was a great place to sneak inside and warm up between photos, and we even did some photos inside a parking ramp to get a break from the bitter cold.

I can’t wait for their wedding tomorrow at the Oak Ridge Hotel & Conference Center in Chaska, MN. It’s been 5 years since I’ve worked there but here are some photos from the last wedding I photographed there!

Last weekend I had the honor of photographing the 2018 Home for Life Spring Gala featuring Dr. Jane Goodall. The Home for Life team always does a fabulous job with this event and this year was no different.To say it was an amazing experience would be putting it lightly. Dr. Goodall’s presentation was so moving that I had tears in my eyes!

I have been doing volunteer photography for Home for Life since 2007, a year before I officially started my business! I so admire their mission, and their compassion and dedication to providing a quality life to animals who had run out of options is unsurpassed. To learn more about their organization and/or sponsor one of their animals visit their website.

Lisa, the founder of Home for Life, asked me to photograph Dr. Goodall with one of their dogs, Raha (read Raha’s story here). As soon as the presentation was over I headed backstage to take the requested photo. Once I was back there, I realized I would have to “pose” Jane Goodall!!  Mind. Blown. (and a little nervous!).  When I walked in the room, Dr. Goodall was sitting on the floor with Raha and instead of posing them I let her interact with him as she wished, and it resulted in some of my favorite photos ever! Hands down, the highlight of my 10-year photography career!

Huge thank you to my friend & business partner for Blush, Jeannette Nargelenas, for helping me with this event. She has helped me photograph this event many times over the years and it’s always great to have her talents along!

Enjoy some of my favorites from the event. See if you can spot the local celebrity! Hint. It’s Sven Sundgaard. He did an interview with Dr. Goodall that will be airing on Kare 11 April 3.
