Should I Have A First Look? What is a first look? The first look is a moment for you and your future spouse to see each other before your wedding ceremony. If you are wondering if you should have a first look, the answer is definitely yes! The first look is one of our favorite […]

You guys… what. a. day. Mikaela and Shane got married November 10, 2018 and to be honest, I am surprised that there wasn’t MORE snow! In South Dakota, you just never know what the weather will be like. And if you remember back to their engagement session, Shane and Mikaela are used to posing for […]

South Dakota Wedding Venues While there are so many beautiful wedding venues in South Dakota, we thought that we would pick out a few of our faves that we shot at in the last year! Wedding barns seem to be the latest trend, especially in Sioux Falls, and we definitely don’t see them going away anytime […]

My Favorite Wedding Tradition One of my favorite wedding traditions that I wish I would have done at my wedding is a Father/Daughter First Look. Of course we love first looks for so many reasons… but I think there is something so precious about a father seeing his daughter on her wedding day for the […]

Palisades State Park Engagement Photos Well, this engagement session is going to be hard to follow!! There is nothing I love more than exploring a new location, so I was super excited when Ashlee and Jace were up for heading to Palisades State Park for their engagement pictures! When you first pull into the Palisades […]

I just can’t get over the fact that we got to be the ones to photograph Stacie and Josh’s wedding on the most beautiful day in October. It was sunny and 65 degrees… and did I mention it was right in the middle of an apple orchard?! Yes this little slice of heaven is the […]

Natalee and Casey couldn’t have picked a nicer day for their engagement session! Octobers can be a little iffy here in South Dakota, but the fall colors totally make up for our unpredictable weather! This photographer was totally in love with all of the oranges, reds, and yellows, and for two people wanting their engagement […]

Tara and Ryan Peterson’s wedding day took place in Huron, South Dakota – AKA where Jon and I live! And I gotta say, there’s nothing quite like photographing a wedding in your own town. The bridal party did hair and makeup, and put on their gowns and suits at the Best Western hotel, which is […]

It was so clear to everyone, and the smiles on Samantha and Austen’s faces told it all: this was the day they had been waiting for. Austin’s smile as he walked his mother and father down the aisle. That look of pure, natural joy on Samantha’s face as she said her vows to Austen. Knowing […]

The Weather Would you believe me if I told you I took these pictures on the same day that I did that snowy engagement session? Yep! It’s true! What a difference driving across the state makes! Friday definitely was an interesting day for me, weather-wise! I started my day out in the snow in Spearfish […]
