Wedding day

There is no greater joy than capturing the love between two people, fiercely & authentically. 

In the mix of wedding planning & checking everything off your list, I want photography to be a choice instead of  just a step. This is the one thing that will live on past your big day.  So you should choose a photographer that best represents the two of you & what your relationship truly means instead of just a bunch of overly posed awkward feeling images in front of a nice landscape... let's go beyond the norm   & create some memories! 

A wedding is a once in a lifetime event in your lives, I strive to not only make the day a little easier, but also help you enjoy it so you can simply be newlyweds squeezing each other as tight as you can!

We capture all sizes of weddings from the large ceremonies to elopements, with a special love for all the woodsy & mountainous wedding day vibes. 

This is your very first big adventure together - let's create some memories!

tips for planning your engagement session

Every season has a different impact to the story. It can add to the overall mood to the imagery. Please take the time to really consider when you want your story to be told. Try to imagine how it will feel. What makes you feel alive? Do you love to hike? Snowmobile? Travel? Cimb? Kayak? What do you both love to do... and how does the weather impact your story? I love to help in the planning process to ensure you get a set of images you will absolutely love and reflects your authentic selves. 
 

Stuck & have no idea where to go, just ask about our local location guide, illustrating some of the best outdoor locations around Minnesota & Wisconsin! We would love to assist you in the whole planning process! Want an epic mountain session in Montana or dying to fly out to Iceland for some insane waterfall vibes... drop a note, traveling is our passion too! 

When considering your engagement session location the top five things to consider are: 

     1. What inspires you?
     2. What’s the weather like?
     3. Is there a specific style you want to wear?
     4. Where does your adventure take place?
     5. Are you bringing props? 

More detailed blog post coming soon!! Any questions just ask! 

 

remember..

 

Organize a few outfits with consideration of temperature, colors, layers, shoes and accessories. Ensuring you are both looking fresh and comfortable! If we are doing a hiking adventure engagement session locally, hiking in the mountains... definitely wear your hiking gear & pack your cute outfits!! I can help with this process too!! 

Bring: snacks, bottled water, granola bars, good walking shoes, hand warmers, face powder, lip gloss and a small bag for carrying extra outfits, accessories, bug spray, etc.

“Cassandra has one of those personalities that is impossible not to love! Her smile and laugh are infectious, and the way she sees the world through her camera is equally as amazing. She documented the feeling our wedding day perfectly and we received so many compliments from family! Cassandra not only puts her heart into telling the story of your day, but she also invests a lot of time and energy in getting to know you. I definitely recommend her for families and weddings!”

“Cassandra blows my mind EVERY TIME we work with her! She’s so fun and down to earth; we always feel some comfortable around her. And she somehow makes my awkward-picture-hating husband look like he is having the time of his life. And the photos..... I mean, they’re all so so so dang perfect.”

“To say that I am thrilled with my photos would be a huge understatement!! Her passion for creating beautiful moments that encompass the love between a couple is evident in every photo that she takes. Not only do her photos capture the day, but they capture the emotion I felt throughout the day, from the anticipation of getting ready to the relief of finally being married. Working with her was stress free and fun, especially considering that my husband and I are not particularly comfortable in front of the camera. I highly recommend her for wedding day photography, and can only imagine how much fun an adventure photo shoot with her would be!”
