Best of 2016

2016 began with a word: Avaunt. To advance / elevate / move forward. Shakespeare liked to use it as an interjection—"Get thee gone" if you will.

Bridal Beauty // Styled Bridal Shoot | Minneapolis, MN

Bridal Beauty // Styled Bridal Shoot | Minneapolis, MN

Photographing a styled shoot has been on my to do list for a while now but it wasn't until early January that I decided to finally set one in motion. The idea of reaching out to other vendors and models and directing a shoot entirely on my own terrified me, but I didn't let it stop me.
