Every little girl dreams of her big day, the day she marries her prince charming. The love story probably started when she was in elementary school and continued to her wedding day. It’s truly a privilege to be invited as the wedding photographer to such an anticipated event and capture and document their unique story for decades to come. 

There is not a single detail that a bride does not put at least one second of time into and the Davis/Wolden wedding was no exception. From Rachel’s dress to her Jimmy Choo's to her bridesmaids, the cake, the flowers and Carlos Creek Winery as the venue - everything was absolutely stunning.

Every wedding is different and every couple makes their own choices, places emphasis on particular parts of the day and designs their wedding in the way they want to celebrate it. As the professional photographer chosen to capture the day, it’s our goal to capture every single detail of a year’s worth of planning in just a few hours and then edit those images meticulously to provide the bride and groom with an everlasting and treasured testament of THEIR dream story.

At Rex Studio, we believe that engagement pictures are also an important part of their dream story. We took Rachel and Justin’s engagement photos in Grand Forks, ND. Because of the distance, nearly three hours away, most of our conversations from discussing the specifics of the engagement photos to the details of the wedding, we relied on e-mail and phone for our planning. Rachel and Justin chose their “Save the Date” photo and approved the design via e-mail and were pleasantly surprised to see the package delivered to their doorstep so soon after approval. Rachel and Justin came into the studio just once and after seeing each other in North Dakota when I shot the engagement photos, we didn’t see each other again until the wedding day. 

I am a hopeless romantic at heart and a professional photographer by choice. As a wedding photographer, I am at my most creative when I can roam around the wedding capturing those moments you may never have even noticed happening during the wedding day itself. Wedding days go so fast, and I want the moments in time I capture to take you back to the day and bring your magical day back to life, over and over. There are so many shots that I love from this wedding and each one plays its own role in telling the story. Individually, they don’t really mean much, but together they tell a unique, timeless and beautiful love story.

The photo that makes me smile the most every time I look at it is the photo of genuine happiness of Rachel, Justin and all their friends and family at the conclusion of the ceremony. Something about Justin jumping in the air puts a smile on my face everytime!

It’s moments like these when you truly believe that dreams can come true.


As popular as digital images have become, nothing can take the place of holding an actual wedding photo album in your hands. That’s especially true when it comes to chronicling your wedding day. I’d love to make your wedding photo album the first family heirloom of your married life and a tangible reminder of one of the biggest days of your life. Our team at Rex Studio believes that a photo taken by a professional photographer who takes the time to understand your story makes the difference between having a party, versus creating a milestone event. Portraits on the wall, framed pictures on your shelves and albums on the coffee table help your love stay more real and help your friends and family relate and relive your story.
