Scott and Caitlyn Engagement Pics

City: Duluth, MN Venue: ,

Scott proposed to Caitlyn on their fourth anniversary; apparently, he was not very sneaky. Usually, Caitlyn is the planner, but Scott had the night covered. It was the first of many suspicious clues. The evening started at the restaurant where they had their first date. After dinner, Scott suggested a Ferris wheel ride at Betty Dangers in Northeast Minneapolis- he doesn’t like Ferris wheels or walking around to “view the lights.” Hmm, something was up, and she knew what it was. While Caitlyn was taking pictures, Scott got down on one knee. She turned around, and he didn’t even have a chance to spit out the words. The answer was a resounding, YES.

Kota and Tina’s Surprise Proposal

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

It may not have been a complete surprise, but Kota still had to ask, and Tina still had to say YES. Kota spent the last nine months overseas and would have asked much sooner, but kept getting extended. Finally home, he brought her to the place where their relationship first started and got down on one knee to ask her to be his forever.


It may not have been a complete surprise, but he still had to ask.

There’s no place like summertime in Canal Park.

Tina’s father was in on the surprise and crafted a wooden ring box.

Derek and Emily’s Wedding Portraits

City: Duluth, MN Venue: ,

Every first look is unique, but Derek and Emily hadn’t seen each other in months, so their first look was extra special. Emily was grinning from ear to ear as her handsome groom approached. When she turned around, it was clear she belonged in Derek’s arms from now until forever after. Thank you for including me in your day and letting me play with the swords. I now know to keep my greasy fingers off the blade. 🙂

That dress was clearly made just for Emily, gorgeous.

There is no place quite like Duluth.

A man in uniform with a sword is hard to resist.

Smiles all around.

Emily wore her grandma’s pearl earrings.

If I were a betting man, my money would be on Emily.

Jon and Miranda Wedding at Enger Tower

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

Jon and Miranda met at a music festival after Jon felt the urge to get up and move. At the time he didn’t know why but instinctually made a B-line straight to Miranda. He boldly asked if she needed help with her tent, and the more they got to talking, the more they found in common. Four years later they married at Enger Tower overlooking all of Duluth. They skipped the traditional wedding party, flowers, cake, and DJ; all they needed was family, friends, and love.

Jon and Miranda are all smiles at Enger Tower.

Erik and Hannah’s Kitchi Gammi Club Wedding

City: Duluth, MN Venue:

If you’re going to receive marriage advice from anyone, it should be someone with a bit of marriage experience. Make sense, right? Hannah’s grandparents just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary- SIXTY YEARS. My hats off to them, and I hope Erik and Hannah take every opportunity to soak in their wisdom.

People drove from all over the midwest and beyond to join Hannah and Erik at the historic Kitchi Gammi Club in Duluth, MN. It was a wondrous day filled with laughter, tears, and a “few” groomsmen speeches. May you two soak in all that your day encompassed and live a life of love that lasts 60 years and beyond.

The ladies and the gentlemen prepare very differently for the wedding.
