September 7, 2018

Jake and Nikki, this day is burned in my memory as one of the most wonderful weddings I’ve ever been to. Thank you, a hundred times over, for asking me to be a part of it. It was truly a joy, and one I won’t soon stop smiling about (maybe ever!). Enjoy a few of […]

I met up with this handsome pair earlier this fall for their engagement shoot. It was my first time out shooting since Landon was born, so truth be told, I was afraid I’d be distracted or feel a little rusty. But, once we started walking and talking, I fell right into rhythm, and was SO […]

These two. I couldn’t possibly love them more, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the closer their wedding day gets, and the more time I get to spend with them, that I will continue to fall for them and their story. Kyle and Cynthia took an otherwise lack-luster, cloud-filled afternoon, and turned it into […]

Brody, Heidi, and Floyd met me in Silver City for their engagement session, which had previously been cancelled due to way-too-cold-to-look-happy temperatures. I couldn’t have been more pleased about the day we were given, and am feeling especially excited about their wedding this summer. Thanks, guys, for hurrying back across the state to make this […]

I’m so excited to share this session! This sweet couple traveled from Sioux Falls for their engagement photos, and even though we didn’t get the picture-perfect snowfall Jen was hoping for, these photos still make me so very happy. Jessie and Jen, thank you for making the trip, for doing a fabulous job of pretending […]

This fun couple was just one of the reasons I loved December. I met up with them in Spearfish for engagement photos, and adored every minute. These two had each other laughing the entire time, which as you’ll clearly see, makes for the very best smiles. Erik and Maren, thanks for traveling this way and […]

This is the lovely Katie and Myles, and I wish I could photograph them on a weekly basis. We met up for engagement photos while Katie was in town visiting from Alaska (and now the Pacific Northwest), and I couldn’t have imagined a better afternoon. Thanks, you two, for being so willing to wander without […]

This is Erika and Peter, and they made my job really easy. And fun. And easy. I would like to take all kinds of credit for these genuine smiles and bursts of laughter (really, I would), but those were simply the result of this couple standing next to one another. It was love at it’s […]
