One of the many things I love about being a photographer is the chance to find and explore new locations and venues that I otherwise would probably never know. This was the case while photographing Sarah and Nathan’s wedding. I’ve known Sarah’s family since I was a little kid. I used to cut grass at her house when I was about 10! It was a huge yard but mostly flat, so that was a good thing : ) Her and Nathan got married in a charming little town called Lansboro in southern Minnesota. It is the biking mecca of MN. This town was straight out of a fairly tail! I rolled through there at about 7 AM while getting to the church. The thing I loved most about it is that there wasn’t a single “brand” named store to be found. I would have thought that a Starbucks or Caribou coffee would have certainly infiltrated a place like that but there was nothing but mom & pop shops, it was beautiful. The time of the year couldn’t be more perfect, a beautiful fall afternoon with nice crisp cool air. They were so great to work with and very easy going. They both tend an organic farm in Iowa and all of the food catered for their wedding was grown on their farm. It was delicious and it was a very refreshing idea. Thanks so much Sarah and Nathan for allowing me to be a part of your gorgeous day.
