Chisholm photography001

It’s been four years this holiday weekend since my grandmothers–yes, plural–passed away.

It was a difficult and strange experience. As a result of that strangeness I haven’t spent much time there, a place that was once so familiar and warm.

Paul and I took a drive up the road to stay in the house where my mother grew up and I thoroughly enjoyed picking out the scattered sentimental trinkets and familiar retro patterns from my childhood. Here are a few photographs from the trip.

Minneapolis wedding foshay glbt same sex001

Minnesota is a wonderful place to live, and I’m proud to be from this lovely state. As a wedding photographer, I’m even prouder to be part of a community that values people’s rights to be with the one they love…legally.

Josh and Philip’s wedding took us around Minneapolis starting at the W Hotel & Foshay, down to the courthouse, and ending at the tasty Freehouse Restaurant. After spending over seven years together, this celebration was filled with so much excitement and joy. I was truly honored to be a part of things.

Paul and I  recently spent an incredible holiday in Pitlochry, Scotland.

No internet. No television. No screens of any kind.

Apple and cheery blossoms were blooming full, the sun was out, and we had nothing to do but enjoy it all. Here are a few snaps of our wee cottage.
