Minnesota winter weddings can be absolutely magically and dreamy! Fluffy white snow and evergreen trees make for the perfect wintery backdrops for portraits. Sure, winter weddings are chilly but we’re tough Minnesotans, right?! Being cold for a few minutes is totally worth the gorgeous images that will last for a lifetime!

Fall weddings hold a special place in my heart because that’s when we got married! I love the cooler temperatures, the falling leaves and the changing colors! Some brides worry about fall color but all I need is one tree with some changing leaves to make your portraits have a fall vibe! A little bit of color can go a long way!

Summer weddings are a favorite in Minnesota because of all the extra daylight, the warm weather and the gorgeous greenery! Unless you aren’t a fan of the warm temps, you really can’t go wrong with a summer wedding in my opinion!

Since I adore photographing in nature, I LOVE when all the greens start to appear for Spring weddings. We may even be able to find a beautiful blossoming or blooming tree that we’ll be sure to take some portraits by! It is one of my absolute favorite times of the year to photograph!
