We've seen a lot of weddings.  And since most of our couples get ready here on site, we've seen a lot of getting ready. Here are our tips and tricks to set you up for success when getting ready on your wedding day.   A few weeks out: Routine- For an important day like this, don’t do any experimenting.  Don’t try shellfish in your omelette for the first time.  Ladies, don’t try a new spray tanner or a new facial mask the night before.  Gentlemen, don’t try a new razor or shave cream that morning. ...

When choosing a date, take time to organize your priorities. Some things you just have to have; other things you might like, but don't necessarily need; and some things are a red flag "no"!   Remember that the things you knew you had to have when you were younger might not be your current style, so give yourself time to "play" with different ideas. [caption id="attachment_19204" align="alignnone" width="1024"] 85mm Photography[/caption]     Dedicate an appropriate amount of time to thinking about each different style, scenario, date & place, even if you believe you'll never chose it in...

Here in Duluth we have Winter.  And Winter is awesome, and we have a great time. (Especially when fun bridal parties come together with fun photographers, like Beau Petersen Photography.)

And if you have a Spring or Summer Wedding, you're probably wondering if the season is ever going to change,...

Every bridal party is unique, and can be an essence of who you are as a couple. Sometimes there are twenty members, sometimes only two, sometimes none! In the case of the royal wedding, the bridal party was made up of children. (Check out our blog about the royal wedding here). Sometimes there are more on one side than the other. Sometimes they walk as couples, triples, or even individuals. Sometimes they are Groomsmaids and sometimes they are Bridesmen. Sometimes they are Flower Grandmas and sometimes they are Gift Guards. Age knows no boundaries.   And every role is an...

QUESTION- What are my head table options?   Great Question.  The options are endless! We typically will see a traditional long table, a harvest table, or a sweetheart table. The first thing you’ll want to do is decide how many people you’d like to sit there.  With that, we can help you with what will make sense with the rest of your setup details. The Traditional Long Table What we love about the Traditional Table- everybody at the guests' tables gets to see everybody at the head table. However- those at the head table can only visit with...
