Cody and Jordan, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your wedding day! I can’t get over how perfectly the snow fell, and I don’t know if I’ve seen a couple more excited about how the day unfolded. What a joy it was to spend this time with you and your […]

Nicole and Adam, I’m so happy it was me that got to be a part of your wedding day! It was incredible, and there’s nothing better than a bride and groom who can’t stop smiling (that’s you!). Thank you for having me, and for making me want to smile right alongside you. Enjoy a few of […]

Peter and Erika, I will always remember the way you set your sights on one another at the beginning of this day, and how your love could be seen at any given moment. Thank you for having me, for making each other laugh out loud, and for being utterly thrilled to be tying the knot. […]

I emailed Makaley, who lived in Mississippi at the time, and told her if they were ever visiting the Black Hills, I would love to photograph her and her husband, Will. I went to high school with her, and had been creeping on admiring their marriage via Facebook ever since I’d seen their wedding photos. […]

I asked him how he was feeling. “Nervous,” was the answer. He questioned a first look, wondering why he couldn’t just see her now. I think he was secretly wishing he could “accidentally” bump into Shanna in the hallway of her parents’ home,  knowing that if he could just talk to her, hug her, his […]

It could be seen in every smile, found at every corner. It didn’t matter if I was standing next to them or watching it unfold from across the room. It was joy.  And it was everywhere. I felt it within the tight spaces of the cabin where life-long friends dressed and laughed and fixed each […]

She thought he was kidding when he asked if she’d like to go riding with him “tomorrow”. But when tomorrow came,  she woke to the sound of his truck in the driveway. Her first thought? “I need to do something with my hair.”  Kamaria explained that she’d had a crush on Chauncey since she was […]

I decided to wait until our ceremony to see Brett on our wedding day.  I thought that seeing each other before would be empty and meaningless—that we’d give each other the casual “what’s up” nod from across the church parking lot in front of everyone present. So I waited to see my husband-to-be until I […]

I know that love is a feeling, but when you look in the right place, it’s visible, too. When I photographed Laura and Lance’s engagement session, it would have been hard to miss. Love, that is. To these college sweethearts, a cold afternoon meant being closer. My asking “for just one more” (a lie, by […]
