Uptown Summer Family Photography | The Burgstahlers

Baby Harper turned 6 months old last month! It seems like it was yesterday that I was taking her newborn photos! I just love it when I get to watch babies grow through my camera lens, it's even more special when that baby is daughter of a good friend! 

This was a hot hot summer day, but everyone pushed through and we got some great shots of beautiful little Harper! Here are some of my favorite shots from Harper's 6 month session in Uptown, Minnesota! 

Hobby Farm Wedding Photography | Emma and Jacob

Emma and Jacob had their wedding ceremony and reception in July at Emma's family hobby farm in New Prague, Minnesota. This place took my breath away it was so beautiful, the perfect setting for a Minnesota summer wedding, complete with a blue grass jazz band on a cool old fashioned truck! Here are a few of my favorite shots from this amazing wedding day!

If you can believe it, this was a DIY cake made by Emma's aunt!

Not only was their wedding day gorgeous, but Emma and Jacob had to pretty much start from scratch about a month before they would say I do. The shed that was housing most of their decor and supplies for the day went up in flames. Their community really rallied around them and helped them to pull things together!

BWCA Moose Sighting!

So... This magic happened yesterday...

We just got home from 3 days in the BWCA. On our last morning, as we were packing up camp to head home, we heard a crazy amount of splashing from the other side of the lake. Ari thought it must be either a really obnoxious paddler, or a moose! So we ran down to the shore to check it out. Through the mist, came these incredibly majestic creatures! A calf and its momma! They were far away, but we could still appreciate how beautiful they are!
