These two were married on July 2 back in Washington where Ailea and her family are from. I had the honor to photograph their MN reception at one of his family’s favorite places… Legends Golf Club. This group was so much fun to capture and they had me laughing all afternoon with their silly antics. I couldn’t have asked for a better last-minute-friday-night-wedding-reception couple (& their families) to photograph! Bonnie (Charlie’s mom), you know how to throw an incredible party! Thank you, all, for having me along! legends_golf_club_wedding_01 legends_golf_club_wedding_02 legends_golf_club_wedding_03 legends_golf_club_wedding_04 legends_golf_club_wedding_05 legends_golf_club_wedding_06 legends_golf_club_wedding_07 legends_golf_club_wedding_08 legends_golf_club_wedding_09 legends_golf_club_wedding_10 legends_golf_club_wedding_11 legends_golf_club_wedding_12 legends_golf_club_wedding_13 legends_golf_club_wedding_15 legends_golf_club_wedding_16 legends_golf_club_wedding_17 legends_golf_club_wedding_18 legends_golf_club_wedding_19

 

I love that this session is completely All-American! They are beautiful people (inside and out), they adore each other and their children and they recently added chickens to their family! So we thought… what a better way to document their beautiful lives right now than to capture them all with the chickens 🙂

I used to work with Meghan’s mom (I made her hop into a few pics as well) at the hospital years ago. Now Meghan is all grown and getting ready for her final year of high school. We had so much fun at her session – I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much during a shoot! And despite the mosquitoes trying to carrying us away (they were the worst I’ve ever seen!), I think we created some beautiful images for Meghan 🙂

They are one of the most beautiful families with their dimples, bright smiles, and Mom as a beautiful Meg-Ryan-look-a-like! We captured a little bit of Gavin (who will be graduating this year from Shakopee High School), some family pics, and one of just Mom & Dad. I always try to sneak in at least one of just Mom & Dad because its beautiful to see where all of this love started! st_anthony_main_graduation_pics_01 st_anthony_main_graduation_pics_02 st_anthony_main_graduation_pics_03 st_anthony_main_graduation_pics_04 st_anthony_main_graduation_pics_05 st_anthony_main_graduation_pics_06
