Ethan + Erin | Midwest Rustic Chic Wedding | Harrisburg, South Dakota

You may remember Ethan and Erin from their awesome fall engagement session last year.. and as promised, here is their beautiful wedding! They got married on a beautiful September day and they were an absolute blast. Erin has a heart of gold (also, she is a preschool teacher so she is basically an angel on earth) and Ethan is a strong military man with unsurmountable love for his country and his family. I can't wait to see what's in store for these two!

Erin's style sparkled in the details as she skillfully blended a rustic feel with a shine of glam.

Ethan, Erin, and I made sure to make enough time in their custom timeline to ensure we were able to stop at a unique location to photograph them as newlyweds after the ceremony. Taking this time is SO WORTH IT.

Thank you, Ethan and Erin, for the opportunity to document your wedding day. It was a pleasure working with you over the last year! 

Chris + Erin | Modern Farmhouse Elegant Wedding | Brandon, South Dakota

Chris and Erin were married on aa beautiful October day after several weeks of consistent rain. Their wedding was one of the most beautiful modern farmhouse styled weddings I have ever seen.. Erin knocked it out of the park! She put her heart and soul into their day and it was so clear in every single detail.

Chris and Erin held both their wedding ceremony and reception at the home of a family friend.. and it couldn't have been more perfect. Their little farm outside of Brandon, SD was the perfect size for their intimate wedding day. 

Chris and Erin's love for one another is evident in the way they react to one another and quite simply melt into one another. They made my job so easy! They ended the evening with some fireworks for an extra bang! It was a truly spectacular day. 

Michael + Holly | Fresh Glam Barn Wedding | Blue Haven Barn | Sioux Falls, South Dakota

When getting married in South Dakota, there are not really any months that are safe in terms of weather, so November is truly a risk of major snowstorms or plenty of bitter cold and wind. Michael and Holly, however, totally lucked out! Michael and Holly were married on an unseasonably warm November day at one of the most coveted wedding venues in Sioux Falls, Blue Haven Barn and Gardens in Sioux Falls. Their fresh glam wedding was highlighted by the warm fall sun and we were able to spend quite a bit of time outside for their portraits. 

Holly's light and airy style came out in the design of her wedding with blush pinks, plum purples, and grays of her florals and wedding party attire. Her gorgeous style came out in all of her details! If you're ever in the market for some bomb wedding shoes that will photograph beautifully at a reasonable price point, there is nothing better than a pair of Badgley Mischka sandals.

Blue Haven Barn has some amazing bridal suites to get ready in. The light is perfect for those getting ready images that are so important, but great for your HMUP to do their job!

When I say the day was perfect, I truly mean it. From the weather to the decor, this wedding was flawless. Even the sunset couldn't have been better! Thank you for sharing your day with me, Michael and Holly! I wish you decades of love and happiness!

Baby Boy Hamanaka | Wall Lake Maternity Session | Wall Lake South Dakota

You may remember Kenji and Jackie's gorgeous Sylvan Lake wedding on a sunny 4th of July weekend.. well, they're back and they brought something with them -- some very precious cargo! These two are expecting a baby boy in August and I couldn't be more thrilled for them.

As you may remember from their wedding, Kenji LOVES to fish, so naturally, we would opt to have their maternity session at Wall Lake just outside Sioux Falls and is a popular fishing destination for locals. Most of the session was on dry land, but on a whim, Jackie decided to get into the water and it made for some gorgeous maternity images!

I love watching my brides and grooms as they grow their families and become parents. These two are sure to be some of the best!
