About me

Well hey there, thanks for visiting! My name's Luke. :) For the past few years, I've had the opportunity to photograph incredible weddings and elopements in Duluth and along the North Shore for amazing couples. I love being a Duluth wedding photographer because of the city's culture, all of the easily accessible natural beauty, and the incredible people I've met here.

Have you thought about eloping or having a small wedding?

While I shoot a ton of traditional weddings, I *really* love elopements and small, intimate weddings, especially weddings and elopements in Duluth! When I say "elopement," I'm talking about an intimate, intentional "just us" experience (NOT a "courthouse quickie") that's exclusively about you and your partner promising your lives to each other, all without the stress and expectations of a traditional wedding day. Your elopement can in Duluth or even along the North Shore! Does that sound too good to be true? Trust me, it isn't. 

Kind words

What can I say, Luke was so incredible to work with! He has managed to capture the very essence of the true love me and my husband share. He has far exceeded my expectations! His pictures speak for themselves, but I also think it's important to note how wonderful Luke is as a person.

But he can't help it that he's popular!"
