Fargo Wedding Photographer : Wedding Photojournalism

It was very rainy Friday afternoon one year [and one day] ago that Shannon and April exchanged wedding vows in the backyard of their Fargo home. They say rain on your wedding day is good luck for the marriage. Well, I’d say Shannon and April collected enough good luck to last them both a lifetime.¬†Happy anniversary this year and in all the years to come! – Ann

It’s been a super busy couple of months. Who am I kidding? The past year has been wonderfully full, challenging and rewarding.

Whose ready for a much needed vacation? Me!

Have a great week. – Ann

Anniversaries are important milestones. It really is hard to believe a whole year [plus one day] has past since John and Juliet exchanged vows and became a family. Their wedding was held on a super deluxe hot August day in rural West Fargo, N.D.

Best wishes to you both. – Ann

P.S. I’m including a handful of photographs from their wedding as I haven’t shared a selection here before.

My last wedding of 2010 was extra special for at least three reasons: location, timing and size.

Alex and Mike were married on a chilly, but clear December evening at A Friend’s House in Kragnes, Minn., which is a few miles north of Moorhead. A tiny chapel located on the grounds of A Friend’s House – formerly The White House – is where my husband and I were married on a stormy June evening. Over the years I’ve photographed heaps of weddings in Fargo-Moorhead and the surrounding region. However, I hadn’t been back to the chapel in Kragnes since my own wedding day. Call me sentimential, but the moment I walked into the chapel a rush of good memories flooded back.

It’s probably no surprise that folks around here tend to marry during the warmer months. Winter weddings – especially those held in the evening like Alex and Mike’s celebration – can be more challenging to photograph because of the cold and darkness. I welcome a good challenge.

Lastly, it’s always a treat to be invited to document a couple’s special day. That’s even more the case when a couple’s plan and vision are a good match for me and my services. Last spring as I was shaping my business plan I made a decision to offer wedding photography services only to couples planning small and intimate weddings. There were [and are] a number of reasons for that decision, which I can elaborate on in a future journal entry. At the time, I wasn’t sure how that choice would play out. So, I was thrilled to work with several couples in 2010 – including Alex and Mike – whose weddings were a perfect fit.

Enough of my ramblings, let’s get to the photographs!

Warmest congratulations to the couple and their beautiful family. -Ann

Wedding Day Kiss

It’s hard to believe a whole year [plus one day] has past since Michele and Jeff married at the Avalon Events Center in downtown Fargo, N.D. The wedding [and reception] was a fabulous affair.

Best wishes to you both in the years ahead.
