Lauren and Colby are a classic love story; southern boy meets South Dakota sweetheart and the rest is history. Their wedding was a perfect blend of southern hospitality meets midwest charm, complete with sweet tea at every table. The day started with threatening storms that just happened to align with the time we were slated to take portraits of the two of them, but Lauren and Colby didn’t skip a beat. They grabbed some umbrellas and ventured out into the rain with me for some darling portraits. Their ceremony was held at the Chapel at Augustana College where they shared heartfelt vows and soaked in the love their friends and family poured out as they became husband and wife. After the ceremony the sun came through the clouds and the rest of the day was perfectly sunny. The party continued at Icon Lounge downtown Sioux Falls where their loved ones made a very beautiful space (Thanks to Icon and the fabulous ladies at Envision Event Planning!)  come to life with toasts, good food and some serious dance moves. It was a very good day, to kick off what we hope will be a very full life for two deserving people. Congratulations Lauren and Colby!

Molly + Paul = Married

We have a soft spot in our hearts for weddings like Molly and Paul’s. There is something so classic about New England weddings. Even with an elegant ballroom, the waterfront of the Danversport Yacht Club brings a laid back vibe to the day where the guests feel like they can kick of their shoes, sip […]

We have a soft spot in our hearts for weddings like Molly and Paul’s. There is something so classic about New England weddings. Even with an elegant ballroom, the waterfront of the Danversport Yacht Club brings a laid back vibe to the day where the guests feel like they can kick of their shoes, sip champagne and get down on the dance floor. Molly and Paul definitely brought their dancing shoes as they both opted for wedding sneakers in lieu of a more traditional foot wear – and their guests followed suit with this approachable elegance. Matt and Chuck were the dream team that captured it all, but it’s easy to see that they were handed a pretty fantastic deck of cards with this wedding. Molly and Paul’s genuine hospitality and loving hearts were the cherry on top of an already beautiful ordeal and we couldn’t be happier for them. Congratulations!

Jenn + Jeff = Married

There’s just something about a black and white wedding palate that doesn’t get old. It exudes a classy timelessness and just looks so *sharp*. Jenn and Jeff are like that though. They live life to the fullest and have excellent taste. Their wedding was a perfect combination of their style and taste. Choosing things like […]

There’s just something about a black and white wedding palate that doesn’t get old. It exudes a classy timelessness and just looks so *sharp*. Jenn and Jeff are like that though. They live life to the fullest and have excellent taste. Their wedding was a perfect combination of their style and taste. Choosing things like a Sunday morning ceremony at the delicious and beautifully accented L’Andana Restaurant made for a memorable and comfortable wedding day. Chuck was on hand to capture it all and we’re smitten with the photos he captured of this sweet pair. Jenn and Jeff; thank you for trusting us to capture your union! We trust you have years of happiness together and wish you the best.

Danielle + Jason = Married

We’ve heard that nearly 75% of all wedding photographers don’t make it past three years in the business. This could be attributed to a few things – high pressured working conditions and the sheer volume of the amount of work involved probably topping the list. We’re in our fifth year of shooting weddings and things are […]

We’ve heard that nearly 75% of all wedding photographers don’t make it past three years in the business. This could be attributed to a few things – high pressured working conditions and the sheer volume of the amount of work involved probably topping the list. We’re in our fifth year of shooting weddings and things are not slowing down anytime soon. I’m convinced this is because our number one criteria for taking on new clients is that these couples are genuinely in love with their future spouse and are getting married for all the right reasons. People who understand that their wedding day is just one (beautiful) day, but their marriage is the prize at the end of a great party. Danielle and Jason are such people. Chuck was fortunate enough to photograph their wedding day (isn’t he just the best?) but even through all our wedding planning communications it was clear that Danielle and Jason are made for one another. Even looking at the love radiating through these photos leaves shivers down our spine. We were honored to have the chance to tell their story and wish them years of happiness together. Congratulations Danielle and Jason!

Amanda + Loftin = Married

Ahhh Maine. For those of you who have visited or live there you know that Maine is a special place. Something about the stunning rocky shore lines, thriving community of artists and local fishermen and did we mention the lobster? Matt and I have been long time fans of all things Maine, so it’s always a […]

Ahhh Maine. For those of you who have visited or live there you know that Maine is a special place. Something about the stunning rocky shore lines, thriving community of artists and local fishermen and did we mention the lobster? Matt and I have been long time fans of all things Maine, so it’s always a treat to get to work there. Amanda and Loftin share our sentiment because despite having family all across the eastern seaboard, they decided to get married at a family residence on Deer Isle and make their wedding a destination for all their guests. And what a wedding they had! If the photos aren’t evidence enough of how special these two are, you can go ahead and take our word for it. Their heart felt and personalized wedding day was a joy to share in. Thank you for allowing us to capture your wedding, Amanda and Loftin. We wish you years of happiness!

Betsy + Viktor = Married

Betsy and Viktor were married on the last day of spring on the most perfect June day. Their wedding was the epitome of all things lovely, which just confirms our theory that weddings are a direct reflection of the couple in honor. Betsy and Viktor are genuine, loving and honest folks.

Betsy and Viktor were married on the last day of spring on the most perfect June day. Their wedding was the epitome of all things lovely, which just confirms our theory that weddings are a direct reflection of the couple in honor. Betsy and Viktor are genuine, loving and honest folks. We feel very lucky to call them our clients. The Lyman Estate continues to be one of our favorite Boston venues with its grand stature and lush grounds, all the while retaining a certain humbleness that yields the best kind of hospitality.  Chuck was fortunate enough to photograph their wedding day and we think all the elements made for such a great set of photos for them to cherish. Congratulations Betsy and Viktor, we wish you all the happiness in the world!

Brooke + Eric = Married

This wedding is special to me for a few reasons. First off, it’s the first wedding I’ve photographed in my hometown of Yankton, South Dakota. When the beautiful bride, Brooke, asked me on her wedding day if I’d ever photographed a wedding in Yankton, I had to think for a moment but realized that no, […]

First off, it’s the first wedding I’ve photographed in my hometown of Yankton, South Dakota. When the beautiful bride, Brooke, asked me on her wedding day if I’d ever photographed a wedding in Yankton, I had to think for a moment but realized that no, I hadn’t ever shot there before. After five years of doing this full time it was definitely time to break that ice – and Brooke, Eric and their crew certainly did! These two wanted a love filled celebration that allowed their nearest and dearest 400 guests to kick off their marriage with a HECK of a party. One that spanned two states, in fact. You see, Brooke grew up in Yankton and Eric grew up right across the river in Crofton, Nebraska. They got ready in one of the oldest buildings in town – the Dakota Territorial Capital building (once upon a time Yankton was the capital of SD) which sits right on the river and has a beautiful park as its yard which made for some lovely photos before the ceremony. They said ‘I do’ at Brooke’s childhood church and after the ceremony the entire wedding party took a booze cruise around Yankton which was buzzing with energy and music. It was literally a party on wheels. Of course I had to drag them into a corn field for a big wedding party photo after which the celebration continued into Nebraska where they joined their guests at the Crofton Auditorium for the reception. It was a fun-filled day that we were happy to get to share in! Congratulations Brooke and Eric! Thanks for having us!
