Micro Wedding at Pinewood Weddings and Events // Erika & Brandon

Erika & Brandon | Micro wedding at Pinewood Weddings and Events - Cambridge, MN

The classic love story–Erika and Brandon met in high school, fell in love, and after eight years of dating, they finally said their vows.

Allison, my associate lead photographer, took the reins for this wedding while I backed her up as second shooter.

The couple opted for a micro-wedding at Pinewood Weddings & Events–a sleek, modern building set among the pines in Cambridge, Minnesota. Sharp lines, big windows, and crisp interiors really made this place pop amongst the trees. Speaking of big windows, Allison brought fantastic photo ideas, including my personal favorite, a shot of the couple in the woods through the venue’s huge windows.

Allison and I provided two hours of coverage for Erika and Brandon. This amount of time covered the ceremony, family portraits, couple’s photos (inside and outside of the venue), and of course, their two dogs! Though the Shih Tzu was photogenic, the lab was only there for the pets.

Congratulations, Erika and Brandon!
