Isaac + Katie | Boho Trendy Wedding | South Dakota State University | Brookings, South Dakota

16 years in the making.. that's what this love story is all about. Isaac and Katie met at the church they were married in as kids, dated in high school, then remained friends for years before reuniting in Colorado and falling in love once again. To say it was a long time coming is a vast understatement. Their incredible love story paved the way for a gorgeous wedding day filled with love, laughter, and a whole lot of celebration as two high school sweethearts tied the knot!

Katie's personal style is so incredibly unique. She is soft but colorful, boho with the perfect amount of trend mixed in. Every bit of her wedding day was so spectacularly her, so even someone meeting her for the first time would feel as if they had known her forever. 

When I tell you that Katie and Isaac’s wedding was different than any I’d ever shot before, I truly mean it was extraordinary. Weather reports called for rain all day, but we managed to avoid any sprinkles until the sunset portraits. Even with the light rain, we went out and the images were totally worth it! 

Thank you for including me in your wedding day, Katie and Isaac. I wish you all the best as you begin your married life together!

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! 

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!
