Kelsey & Dave

 It was truly a gift to be able to photograph my sweet friends, Kelsey, and Dave, on their wedding day!  They had their ceremony and reception in the small town of Parker.  They were surrounded by so many friends and family who love and support them.  

I was in the wedding party, and not the lead photographer of their wedding!  It was so sweet to be able to steal the bride and groom around sunset to take some portraits of the two of them. Between the golden light surrounding us and the giant trees over us, it was the dream setting for intimate portraits of the both of them! 

 I’ve known Kelsey and Dave for most of my life.  It has been so lovely to see them grow as friends, to best friends to now husband and wife.  Their love and care for one another is so evident by how they look at each other.  I am so thankful to know that my best girlfriend is so loved and cherished by her groom.

A lovely day for a photoshoot

  I was so happy when one of my childhood friends contacted me for family portraits while I was home in South Dakota.  One of my first memories is playing in the sandbox with him, my friend, Travis.  It was really lovely to meet his girlfriend, Alissha, and her adorable son, Rane.  

  We got to go to one of my favorite parks in Sioux Falls for this sweet family portrait session.  I had so much fun photographing these three! The weather was gorgeous, and their love for one another was priceless. 

Enjoy! <3

Star Wars, Starry Eyes, and Magic

  I had the joy of taking some engagement pictures for Paige & Quentin while I was home.  It’s so cool to have a client that has been with you through your growth as a Photographer and Artist.  I actually took Paige’s senior pictures for her graduation from High School!! It was so sweet to meet her introverted man, Quentin.  

  While photographing Paige and Quentin,  it became very easy to see their love for one another. It also became very easy to see their love for Star Wars!  Our shoot was full of laughter, cuddles, and adventuring.  I had a lot of fun watching them battle with their plastic swords!  It was so sweet to see their comfort and interactions with one another. 

Also, I can’t get enough of dreamy, open South Dakota fields. 


Paige & Quentin, your love is so sweet.  You are a gift to one another! I can’t wait to photography you both more in the future!
