My home state is always fun to visit but it's especially exciting when I get to photograph old friends. Many who I grew up with. What an honor it was when Grace Anderson called me to see if I was available for her wedding day. Fortunatly it was open and I was so looking forward to capturing her special day. Her parents and my parents go way back and capturing Roderick and Grace's wedding was like spending the day with family. Grace was one of the most laid back and genuine brides. Everything was organized yet peaceful. And maybe it's partly the quiet and calm of a small town. Everything from the church to the county fair reception to the sunset photos by Lake Bemidji; the atmosphere and beauty of it all was a breath of fresh air.
