Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

Sam + Maggie: A Detroit Lake Engagement Session

July 26, 2019

You know how sometimes you’ll meet someone and you just instantly connect? Like there’s just something about them that makes you wonder why life hadn’t bought your paths together a long time ago and you could quickly see yourself becoming lifelong friends? This Detroit Lake engagement session was for friends just like that. One of the amazing perks of my job is getting the chance to work with some super sweet people that then become real life friends.

How We Met

I first met Sam and Maggie through their maternity session with their sweet little boy, Noah. The joy of watching him grow into a playful one-year-old running around during their family session last fall was amazing! I just absolutely love their little family and we became fast friends. So you can image how thrilled I was when they reached out to let me know they are ENGAGED. They asked me to photograph their engagement session and wedding and I was so honored to say yes! I am so truly blessed to watch their love and family grow. I get to be there to capture those incredibly special moments in their life and I am so humbled by that.

An Epic Location

So, of course, we needed and EPIC location for these cuties. What better place than the GORGEOUS rolling hill landscape that is Detroit Lake?? We also found this unbelievably breathtaking spot tucked away along the babbling riverside. The lighting was PURE MAGIC! And, of course, we absolutely had to include the cutest little model into the mix as well! Be sure to scroll to the end to see their adorable photos featuring sweet little Noah! 

Congrats Sam and Maggie! I wish you so many adventures in life together and I could not be more thrilled for you two!
