Joel & Kitty | Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Kitty and Joel's wedding was more than a day, but a celebratory weekend. In the little beach town of Tamarindo, an entourage of Minneapolis-lites soaked in the February sun and rich culture. The groom's dinner was traded for a all day catamaran ride and the bachelorette party was hoping from surf bar to surf bar. 

Being their wedding photographer was a dream come true. Besides getting to travel to Costa Rica, take a mini vacation, and shoot a simply elegant wedding day, Kitty and Joel felt like best friends. That's just the way they are. Which explains why 50 plus people would book a plan ticket and hotel in a heart beat for these two.


Kitty also has the cutest blog and youtube channel. I mean, if your name is Kitty Cotten what can you expect? Make sure you take a peak at all her pretty social media!

Jordan & Karl | Semple Mansion

On a chilly day in December, I entered a 1899 built mansion bustling with laughter and warmth. The wood stain was rich, the fire was crackling, and the sun was bright. The feelings I got when entering the Semple Mansion are the same feelings that grew throughout the day. Every bridesmaid, every uncle, every brother felt like a friend. Jordan & Karl kept their day centered around what mattered, people. That feeling of warmth was shown through the speeches and in-betweens. Congratulations Jordan & Karl, you are so loved.
