PHILLIP + ILYSSA // STONE ARCH BRIDGE ENGAGEMENT SESSION by ASHLEY GROTH

Words cant describe how excited I get when couples want to incorporate their dogs into their engagement sessions. ALLLLL the heart eyes for Beau! Ilyssa and Phillip live and work near the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis, MN so naturally it served as the most perfect backdrop to their engagement story. We’d been trying to get together since late last year for this session but timing just didnt pan out - and I couldnt have been happier that their session landed on the first WARM day in Minneapolis since last October! Ilyssa and Phillip - thank you SO much for running all over St Anthony Main with me - and Beau for being such a good boy!

BRITT + AARON // MODERN RUSTIC BARN WEDDING by ASHLEY GROTH

Britt and Aaron’s wedding in Owatonna, MN was a complete family affair. From renovating the barn on the property with family and friends, to filling the inside with tables, chairs, and centerpieces - to the ceremony location between two Maple Trees. Food trucks, delicious desserts and style to the ultimate nines - this couple had it all, and were the sweetest to boot. And - that pizza. All the heart eyes for this couple on this very fabulous day!

2 weeks in paradise; playing on the beaches sunrise to sunset in Lahaina —-> spending a night in the jungle in Hana —-> cannonballs in the pool in Oahu. Bring me back to relaxing days + coffee with a view + shave ice :)
