Hello and welcome! I have recently relocated to Portland, Maine from Rochester, Minnesota and serve the wedding and portrait photography needs of Maine, Minnesota and beyond. This is the place to check out my most recent work and to get a glimpse into my life. Feel free to take a look around, I'd love to connect with you!

Julia + Zach

Julia and I go waaaay back to our days as newly minted freshman on Hoyum Hall at Concordia College.  We bonded over instant messenger chats and late night ramen snacks and I’m thankful our friendship has remained even though MSN and ramen are out, ha!  I know I’ve said it before but I think perhaps the only thing greater than being happy yourself, is seeing those you love happy.  I was so happy to finally meet you, Zach and see you so happy, Julia!  Congratulations to you both on your engagement!  I am so happy for you, I love you and I am so excited to celebrate with you at your wedding next fall!

Erica + Danny

My baby sister is getting married and I couldn’t be more thrilled for her and my soon to be brother-in-law, Danny!  I’m not sure how it’s possible that the little kid I remember convincing to stand in only her underwear on a snowbank in the dead of winter for a measly $1 (true story) is now old enough to be married but I’m so excited about it!  I am beyond thankful that Clara knows her Auntie Erica so well and has taken a fond liking to Danny too! Pretty much the only thing I don’t like about living in Maine is being so far from family but even over the distance, we are still super close and involved in each others’ lives.  We have learned to cherish the time together even more and always make wonderful memories (thankfully none involving underwear and snowbanks anymore though..).  Erica came to Maine in August for her 9th trip and brought Danny for his 1st!  Of course we had to give him the full tour of Portland and we even made a trip up to Acadia National Park (a must do if you ever visit Maine!).  We did some engagement photos both during their visit to Maine as well as when I was back in South Dakota which is fitting since both are incredibly special places!  To Erica and Danny, we are thrilled for you and love you and can’t wait to celebrate with you on your wedding day and beyond!  XOXOXOX!  p.s. You guys are cute!        emilygriffith_0231.jpg

Megan + Ben

Megan and Ben are getting married this fall in Watertown, SD…her hometown and mine!  We were all there for Easter weekend and decided to do their engagement photos there too which was perfect as Megan is living in Chicago, Ben is in Sioux Falls and I’m in Portland.  Whew!  🙂 These two are so stinking sweet and adorable.  I remember Megan growing up in high school…can’t believe she is getting married!  Yeah, yeah, yeah I know that makes me sound old…  So excited for your wedding, guys!

Ellen + Darrick

We are in the dead of winter so how about reminiscing about late summer/early fall for a bit?  Ellen and Darrick wanted to keep their engagement photos a surprise until they were able to give them to their families as gifts over Christmas.  It was a special surprise as they recently inherited the boat which has been passed down from Ellen’s grandparents to her parents and now to her and Darrick.  So cool!  They also wanted to include their dog, Fargo, in their photos which of course I loved and quickly fell in love with!  Such a fun couple and fun session and fun to warm up to the memory of summer on this chilly winter day!  Can’t wait for their summer wedding!

Tricia + Mike

Maybe you read my recent post about our upcoming move to the East Coast.  Well, Tricia and Mike’s engagement session was my inaugural shoot in Boston and it.was.awesome.  We had so much fun with these two.  They live in a super sweet and charming historic condo that they have completely renovated which gave me the itch to move into a fixer-upper even though I have no clue what to do with a fixer-upper…  We started the shoot inside, then moved to their roof deck (with ridiculous views of the city), then to a quaint little coffee shop that they frequent a lot.  Tricia, you are effortlessly beautiful and the two of you are so sweet together.  We can’t wait for your wedding this fall!

Ryan + Jessica

Ryan and Jessica are getting married!  I have known Ryan since we were we little kids (I’ll bypass any embarrassing stories) and I can’t believe he’s old enough to be getting married (I know that makes me sound old).  But seriously, I am so excited for these two.   And I love their dog.  🙂  Aren’t they cute?

Neal + Jessica

As long as I have known Justin, I have heard about Neal.  From what I can understand of their inside jokes and stories, they have been friends since their days in little league.  And when I say friends, I might as well mean brothers.  These guys don’t get to see each other much anymore but it doesn’t matter, they always pick up right where they left off.  And Jessica.  She is the sweetest thing ever.  Oh yeah, and she’s gorgeous.

I know I’ve said it before but I think perhaps the only thing greater than being happy yourself, is seeing those you love happy.  You can see it in the way he looks at her, the way she looks at him.  You can see it in their laughs, their smiles, their hugs, their kisses.  It’s contagious and we love it.  Congratulations on your engagement, Neal and Jessica!  We are so happy for you, we love you, and we are so excited to celebrate with you at your wedding next year!

Bobby + Ellen

I know what you are thinking, but I swear I did not hire J.Crew models for this shoot.  They are just that cute.  Bobby and Ellen chose to do their engagement session at Bobby’s family’s cabin near Chatfield, MN.  I love it when couples choose locations that are meaningful to them and it didn’t hurt that it was absolutely  gorgeous there.  Congratulations on your engagement, Bobby and Ellen and happy wedding planning!
