Robert & Katy’s wedding | Mankato Photographer
Robert and Katy had their intimate wedding ceremony at McGowan’s Farm in October. It’s just south of Mankato, nestled in between the Blue Earth River and Le Sueur River. The farm is an amazing wedding location. The leaves were at peak color, and their families had so much fun! Besides being a beautiful place, McGowan’s Farm is important to the couple because they work there and help keep it going. They included plentiful shamrocks, Claddagh, and green for their Irish wedding.
The weeks leading up to their wedding were rainy, but that day the weather gifted us with perfect light cutting through the clouds. The colors in the landscape were brilliant from all the rain. This wedding is one of my favorite small weddings from the year. We had the opportunity to have fun and be relaxed with portraits. I captured lots of candid shots with guests. I love it when I am able to take the time to mingle with guests and concentrate on photographing genuine interactions. Then the couple has a record of not just their wedding party but all of the important people who celebrated their marriage with them.
I also really enjoyed that Robert and Katy’s kids were included in their wedding. This year I’ve seen many couples doing this. It’s fun to think about how the kids will be able to look back on these photos and experience the wedding memories as older children.
I’m very thankful I connected with Robert and Katy. I really enjoyed getting to know them and work with their families.
