como zoo wedding

It has been a dream of mine to capture a wedding at the Como Zoo Conservatory in St. Paul and my dream finally came true! It was more than I could have imagined because I met and captured the sweetest couple, Tyler & Derek. The love these two share for each other and their families was so special to witness.

There was this outstanding balance of tears and laughter throughout the evening. It started with Derek turning around to see Tyler in her beautiful wedding dress. We were so grateful the rain held off for their first look and portraits in the Japanese Garden. They shared many tears soaking in the special moments with each other. The endless laughter came later when her younger sisters shared hilarious stories in their speeches having the whole room entertained. 

Their day was intimate with their closest family and friends surrounding them in the sunken garden at the gorgeous Marjorie McNeely Conservatory as they promised forever to one another! It was such an honor to capture it all. As you scroll through their gallery, I hope you notice all the beauty that comes with the conservatory and the love Tyler & Derek share for each other and their loved ones.

Thank you Tyler & Derek for making my dreams come true and for being the sweetest couple in the world! I truly cannot wait to see what the future holds for you two as you journey in this new adventure of marriage.

Thank you for reading!




At home in nature. Ever-focused on beauty and the thrilling art of creation; found in the moments that leave me breathless and in awe. 

If there is one thing you can learning about me is how much I enjoy serving others. My heart is the happiest when I can put a smile on someone's face or help them feel comfortable during their session. After losing my grandfather this past year, I realized he was the person who showed me how to love others. He always shared the biggest smile and had the most welcoming heart towards everyone he met. I got to experience the joy he brought to this world with his love, and that is what I strive to be like as a wife, mother, and business owner.
