valentine's with elysian events


minneapolis branding photography

I LOVE working with Elysian Events, especially at our favorite Minneapolis venue, Urban Daisy! It always amazes me how she puts together stunning setups with her luxury balloons and backdrops.

We had a wonderful afternoon bringing her Valentine's Day vision to life, from delicious cocktails topped with sweet cotton candy to a pink shimmer wall framed perfectly with vibrant valentine's day colored balloons. The entire setup brought so many ideas on how it could be used on Valentine’s Day… I can see a couple of friends hanging out for galentine's day, cheering their friendship as they reminisce through funny memories. Or couples sharing a double date with a nervous boyfriend about to get down on one knee for a surprise proposal. The ideas are endless and fun!

Can you tell, as a wedding photographer, I have a sweet spot for love! As you scroll through the gallery, I want you to think about the love you feel from your spouse, family, friends, and pets. Love is a beautiful feeling and should always be celebrated on Valentine’s Day and every day after. 

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.
