Kari and Joe: A Minneapolis Wedding Story

I got lost in him, and it's the kind of lost that's exactly like being found.

The hardest part of my job is writing blog entries. I love EVERYTHING else about what I do but for some reason writing these introductions to people that I have met, that I have gotten to know, people that I love is just really hard. I never want to come across as fake or fluffy. Or make their story sound anything but authentic and heartfelt. I wish you could feel the emotion from every wedding day I experience. My hope is you can hear the laughter, that you can feel the joy.

Kari and Joe got married on one of the hottest days of the year. The kind you get five times a year in Minnesota.  The kind that we love to hate. The kind that people beg for all winter-it's a long one up here-and then complain about when it comes.  But not Kari and Joe. Here were two of the most positive, sweet, caring people I have ever met.  They never complained about the heat, or the walk to different places to shoot at. They tried to take care of ME. They sat me with their families. They included me in their inner circle. It was more than just a day to celebrate their love. It was the first day that they celebrated their marriage.
