From the pageant gown to the wedding gown!


I photographed a beautiful fall wedding in October. Brianna is a former Miss Minnesota. I am a pageant judge through the Miss America system and when I judged my first pageant in Minnesota, Brianna was the current Miss Minnesota at the time. She is also an accomplished pianist and with both of us musically inclined, we just clicked!

Ben and Brianna met while they were both out one night. Ben was actually with his friend who happened to be the officiant of their wedding. They had a drink of Tullamore Dew when he met Brianna and the rest is history!

I was thrilled when she asked me to capture her big day! As we know with 2020, it has been very turbulent and unknown. Brianna and Ben did not let that interfere with their big day! They held their wedding at a close family friends house in the cities. They had a beautiful set up in their backyard with spaced out seating, heaters, and a zoom set up so more family and friends could witness from near and far.

One of my favorite moments to capture in a wedding is the grooms face when he sees his bride walk down the isle for the first time.

Brianna is the oldest of eleven and I could tell when I took their family photos that they are such a tight nit family with a lot of love and support for each other.

The reception was catered in by a local restaurant and their guest of family and a few close friends sat inside the garage as they celebrated with dinner, cake, and speeches. They then followed with their first dance and sparklers!

OK...we get it your both models.... ;) haha but in all seriousness you both are a beautiful couple not only on the outside but on the inside as well and it was truly an honor for me to capture your special day! I wish you both the best! XO!
