Emma + Tanner

As the sun was coming up on a beautiful Saturday in June, I began the road trip up north of Detroit Lakes, MN to photograph Emma and Tanner's wedding day. This one was a little different from most of our weddings, as our good friend Emily was photographing with me instead of a very pregnant Bethany. 

What I loved about this wedding was the amount of love Emma and Tanner showed each other and how much their guests showed their support. As a wedding photographer, you spend a lot of time with the couple, their friends, and their families. Its so encouraging when the people closest to the bride and groom have only good things to say, happy tears to shed, and incredible memories to make. 

Emma and Tanner chose to wait until the wedding to see each other that day, and their reactions were just beautiful. Tanner was so excited to see his bride for the first time and Emma  just couldn't stop smiling if she tried. The ceremony was beautiful with a great message, music from friends, and a whole lot of love.

As Emily and I drove back to the cities that night, we couldn't stop ranting and raving about how incredible the day was. These two had such an amazing eye for creating a gorgeous wedding, were so happy to be hitched, and just had a blast. The dance floor was completely packed from the start of the reception until well past the time it was supposed to end. What a party!

Congrats you two! We were so honored to capture the big day.


Also, I cant forget to show you the INCREDIBLE video that Captured Formal did for Emma and Tanner. Stunning. Check out their work, these guys know their stuff, and were a joy to work with.
