  • Hello!!

    Thanks for stopping by. As a wedding photographer I am surrounded by love in both my professional & personal life. The love I have for my family is what inspires me. I come to this special place to share my heart for adoption, family & photography.

    A few things about myself...
    ~I have 4 beautiful children. They all came into our family via adoption.
    ~I hit the husband lottery.
    ~I'm from North Dakota. No that's not the state with the president's faces.
    ~I love the Lord.
    ~Someday I will learn how to garden.
    ~I drive a minivan...yes, I am that cool.
    ~I absolutely love being a wedding photographer and cry at almost every wedding I shoot.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

Kelsy & Mike: Napoleon, ND Engagement Session

When Kelsy asked me to travel to Napoleon, ND I wasn’t sure what to expect from this small town of about 800. Kelsy had her heart set on taking their engagement pictures on their family’s land. Once I arrived I could see why! The beautiful scenery, old barn, and the house her grandfather grew up in made for an incredible engagement session. Kelsy & Mike are such a sweet couple! They love to hunt, fish, and be adventurous together. That pretty much makes Kelsy the total package! She’s gorgeous, smart, and can hold her own with a rifle and rod…I can see why you locked it up, Mike!;)

M & K~ I am so excited to be a part of your wedding this fall! Thank you for inviting me to your cute town and showing me around the land that means so much to you both. You two are totally worth the THREE TICKS I found on me after your shoot! Haha!


Baby Luke

Hands down my favorite part of being a wedding photographer is watching my couples experience some of the most incredible blessings life has to offer. Since the only time I take newborn/family pictures is for my past couples it is such a unique experience documenting such special moments for couples I have grown to know. You can view My & Sebastian’s wedding here. When a couple hires me as their wedding photographer they are allowing me to see an intimate aspect of their relationship.  The same goes for when they welcome me into their home to take their baby’s first professional portraits. It is always a blessing & an amazing experience.

M & S~ I couldn’t be happier for you! Luke is a bundle of perfection. That hair. Those lips. I fell in love. Thank you for sharing him with me for the morning!


Mallory & Patrick: Bismarck, ND Engagement Session

It’s hard to believe that the beautiful woman you see in these images was once the sweet little girl who lived across the street from my childhood home. Our mothers are close friends whom met in college so we would see one another often growing up. It fills my heart with great joy to see that Mallory has chosen an incredible man to spend her life with. Patrick is a talented hockey player and over the years their relationship has been mostly long distance. Their engagement session was an absolute blast! I was informed that they aren’t into the whole “PDA thing” but if you ask me they look pretty comfortable getting cozy in these pics!;)

M & P~ I am already looking forward to your wedding next summer! Thanks for all the laughs at your session. XO


Alicia & Paul: Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Wedding

Canadian natives, Alicia & Paul chose Arizona to tie-the-knot and I am so glad they did! Their wedding day was beautiful. It was amazing to see and experience the support they have in all their guests who made the trip to celebrate their commitment to one another.  One thing I love about Canadian weddings are the speeches & introductions about each bridal party member by the MC. It’s neat because the MC (or MC’s like at this wedding) usually know the couple extremely well which makes it very personal and entertaining.  I would go back and shoot this wedding a million times over!

A & P~ Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day! You are such incredible people, I know the future holds many amazing adventures for you.  xo Brittany J.


Lauren & Trae: Engagement Session

It was in a college volleyball class that this love story began. Trae was the one to grab Lauren’s hand to help her to her feet after taking a fall and shortly after she would fall yet again, this time in love with him.  Trae & Lauren are an incredible couple. They have so much in common but what stands out to me the most is their shared faith in God. Many couples their age aren’t even thinking about marriage but these two know exactly what they want and who they want to be with.  It is so refreshing to see a young couple pursuing their faith and living it out for all to see. I have no doubt that Trae & Lauren will accomplish amazing things as husband and wife. I am counting the days until their Carmel, CA wedding in July!

L & T~ I had so much fun with you two this week! Enjoy these next couple of months leading up to your big day! XO Brittany
