MY BEST FRIEND’S WEDDING / CENTURY BARN, WISCONSIN
💕 Happy Valentine’s Day (and belated Galentine’s day!) to all of you love fans. I can’t think of a better time to share a day that is right at the core of my heart - my very best friend’s wedding. Standing up for this beautiful woman and her soulmate was one of the greatest honors of my life. A huge thank you to Michael Holst for stepping in as the perfect sub, and thank you to my Joe for capturing this day in a way that is everything imaginable and more.

STILLWATER, MINNESOTA WEDDING
Sam & Jake’s organic, elegant, effortless, hilarious day. Beginning at Haus Salon, Sam started the day with friends and co-workers in this beautiful raw industrial setting. Great photos start with great light, and this space has plenty of it! The cite of their ceremony and party was decorated with an herbal, minimal, effortless approach, and we were so inspired by it. Their day put a relaxed atmosphere and bonding with loved ones and each other at the forefront. It’s also proof that rainy days are more than A-O-K. Don’t miss this one! www.joeandjenphoto.com/samantha-and-jake-i-do
SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS ENGAGEMENT SESSION
The perfect autumn session with these two lovebirds. We started with coffee at their favorite date spot (Studio 2 in their ‘hood of South Minneapolis), then took a walk down tree-lined streets and ended at a deserted Lake Harriet. I love the slightly dreary but cozy feel of this set - the perfect moody October feels. Our neighborhood stroll at joeandjenphoto.com/geoff-and-kelsey-yes
GLENSHEEN MANSION WEDDING / DULUTH, MINNESOTA
What better time than Halloween week to share Jen & Austin’s haunted mansion wedding! The North Shore is one of our favorite places on earth - we’re so inspired by the rocky shoreline, the open expanse of the lake, the constantly changing and moody weather, and the laid-back and friendly attitude of people there. On top of this, our couple Jen & Austin are two of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. Jen grew up in Duluth and has always been fascinated by the Glensheen Mansion - a supposedly haunted and beautiful grand home right on the shore. They were wed here in a beautiful ceremony on the terrace, followed by a lakefront dinner. The vibe definitely got spookier as the light faded, with the evening ending with a full-on party in the basement and ghost stories by the bonfire. We love the originality and joy of this day, and we’re so happy for these Clients-turned-friends! joeandjenphoto.com/jen-and-austin-i-do
MINNEAPOLIS ENGAGEMENT SESSION
We got the prettiest fall light for Alison & Andrew’s Cedar Lake engagement session a few weeks back. We can’t get enough of the softer, cooler, moodier seasonal light of fall and winter, and these two definitely brought the passion. A few of our favorites at joeandjenphoto.com/alison-and-andrew-yes!
STILLWATER ENGAGEMENT SESSION
We explored rivers, forests, and caves in Stillwater on a beautiful fall evening with Jenna & Spencer last month. We can’t wait for their riverfront wedding next September! joeandjenphoto.com/jenna-and-spencer-yes
MADISON PUBLIC LIBRARY WEDDING / MADISON, WI
Becky and Galen! These hilarious, fun-loving, glorious best friend are extra special to us as they are THIRD in a family tree of Clients. We’re keeping the tradition alive three years in a row, photographing friends in this incredible group, and it’s one of our favorite things that has happened to us as a business. Becky & Galen’s day was perfectly tailored to their relationship together, having met in college at UW Madison and sharing passions for literature, science, and FUN. We spent the day laughing by their side, and we’re so thankful to have shared another day with all of these people. joeandjenphoto.com/becky-and-galen-i-do
