She wore her mother’s wedding gown (redesigned only a bit to make it her own)… The license plates on his restored old Chevy is their wedding date… He hand-crafted a gorgeous card just so he could express his love for her on their wedding day (when she read it aloud to her girls, everyone shed some tears!)… Their families have so much love for them!… They are madly in love… And their really, really beautiful people (inside and out)!

I have said it a hundred times before but I’ll say it again… I really love following families around and truly documenting (no posed portraits of any kind) their love and lives together! Meet the gorgeous Henke’s! They own Annie B’s and we’ve been working together a bit on photographing their incredibly delicious caramels and popcorn (their website will be updated soon with images)! But this session was simply to spend time documenting their lovely life with their handsome little guy in their gorgeous condo in St Paul. They spent some time at home reading books, visiting their favorite coffee shop (Nina’s) & walking around the neighborhood. Later in the day, August’s nanny came over to snuggle with him while mom and dad went out for their weekly date night (brilliant!). Enjoy this family that is far too beautiful in so many ways!

She’s a dear friend that I met while working at the hospital… and one of the best nurses I know (& she giggles a lot, so really, how can you not love her?!)! She married the man of her dreams in a very intimate ceremony at Gather Restaurant at the Walker Art Center surrounded by Jen’s sweet boys, Jen & Vince’s parents, siblings, family and close friends. It was truly an honor to be able to document this incredible day for them!

p.s. The little girl has juice in her champagne glass:)

Jennie is a very dear friend in the photography industry. It was such an honor to spend four hours with them simply documenting their life and love together as a family… we didn’t pose a single photo… this is their beautiful life!
