This family is beyond kind.  Mom is just as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside and this dad is full of fun.  Capturing their boys was so much fun as we started at the beach, headed for ice cream, and then had a surprise train come by.  What more could little boys want?  This family enjoys the simple pleasures and chooses to be happy in life.  I love when families have sweet reminders around their home of memories they have created together.  This family wanted summer memories captured for just that… some BIG ART for their walls.  😉

Meet these two dental students.  While they had other options including Manhattan, Mary eventually ended up here in Minneapolis.  Their convoluted journeys to dental school brought them together and their commonalties have kept them bonded. They have shared over two years of study/movie/dinner/ice cream/café latte dates, and have been each other’s support system throughout the rigors of dental school.  This past spring, Jim popped the question with his best friends and sister encircling them with sparklers. When Mary said “Yes”, she realized that coming to MN was in fact her dream and that Manhattan and all the sample sales and amazing food it had to offer was incomparable to finding the love of her life.  I am counting the days until their wedding next June!  Watch their VIDEO here!

This wedding will make you want to get married all over again!  Annie and Ryan had a day filled with personal touches from Annie’s bouquet to Ryan’s pocket watch.  This wedding was located at the beautiful University of St. Thomas Chapel and the followed by a Food Truck reception and dance at the Arts Architectural Building in Northeast Minneapolis.  Simple Elegant Bridal Consulting assisted with all the details of the day.  This day was full of swooning moments.

Meet this sweet family!  I’ve been photographing their journey since their oldest was just a couple years old!  I love watching them grow.  We enjoyed the sunshine, pies, and had lots of play!
