AMANDA + brandon

The Mill Site - Anoka, MN
March 2023

Starting the 2023 wedding season at one of my favorite local wedding venues, The Mill Site - Events on the River and with the SWEETEST couple, Amanda and Brandon. They celebrated their wedding day with their closest family and friends and ten wonderful years together. What started as coworkers at the movie theater popped into a sweet and timeless love story!

There were so many moments throughout Amanda and Brandon’s wedding day that I thought, “This is why I love capturing weddings!” Between the bride and groom's first look, the groom's mother in tears as she walked with her son down the aisle, and all the joy in their guest's eyes as they entered their venue after portraits. This entire day was full of beautiful moments that stole my heart. Being a parent has made me cherish wedding days from a different perspective. Watching your child marry someone you have prayed for their entire lives has to be overwhelmingly emotional, rewarding, and surreal. I know one day I will be the groom's mom with endless tears running down my cheeks. 

Enjoy seeing the highlights of this sweet couple’s day! Amanda and Brandon, thank you for trusting me as your wedding photographer and picking the perfect wedding day in March! Having sunshine all day with a high of forty was a blessing. I wish you both more years of happiness and love!

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.
