“Mountains have become like a second home to me. What initially started as one of the prettiest places I had ever visited quickly grew into a feeling of home.” (Emily Schmidt)
Home. They say Midwest is best.
And we believe them.
On the top of Lutsen Mountains in Northern Minnesota you can see everything. To the right is the ever frigid Lake Superior and to the left is a canopy of evergreens as far as the eye can see. There is a place, shaped by the shadow of the trees. It’s serene, and every so often you have to remind yourself that you’re in Minnesota.
This shoot was an adventure in itself. From hauling all of our supplies up in tiny gondolas, setting up our entire sweets display in poison ivy (and not realizing it until our lovely florists pointed it out!) or crossing a river in a Truvelle wedding gown. It was an incredible day and I’m so thankful to have been a part of it. Our heart behind this shoot was to inspire brides in the midwest that they CAN have their mountain top wedding they’ve been dreaming of…without traveling too far. I loved being able to bring this shoot to life.
Brides, look no further. Enjoy this mountain top elopement. Take in the bold & moody elements, the movement, emotion and shadows that makes you feel something.
