Cady + Ryan = Married

One of the things we love about Cady and Ryan are how they have priorities in the right place. From the beginning, they knew they wanted a wedding that was primarily about bringing their loved ones together and how they wanted the focus to be on their community and the people who have brought them […]

From the beginning, they knew they wanted a wedding that was primarily about bringing their loved ones together and how they wanted the focus to be on their community and the people who have brought them to where they are today. What’s more – they did this with a *whole* lot of class and style. Bringing on the talented ladies from Envision Wedding Studio was a no brainer to help execute their event at The District in Sioux Falls, SD. The results of these focus’ was flawless – it truly was a beautiful day where everyone had a BLAST. Cady and Ryan are so well matched for one another – talented, gracious and hearts the size of Texas – I don’t think they stopped smiling the entire wedding day. It’s been our immense pleasure getting to know these two as new friends, and we’re over the moon for them during this exciting time. Congratulations Cady + Ryan!

Dominique + Dan = Married

What a glorious wedding day Dominique and Dan had in July! We have more than enjoyed working with these two, and by the time the big day came along it was no surprise that the wedding day was a fantastic celebration of their union.

We have more than enjoyed working with these two, and by the time the big day came along it was no surprise that the wedding day was a fantastic celebration of their union. Dominique and Dan are the total package: hard working, genuine, loving, giving and kind. They absolutely deserve each other and we know they will do amazing things together as their future unfolds. Dan grew up in Sioux Falls, SD and Dominique grew up in Canada and Yankton (a small jaunt from Sioux Falls) but it wasn’t until Medical School that their paths crossed and their love grew. Sioux Falls was the perfect backdrop for their wedding that brought people from California, Canada and even Africa (!) to celebrate with them. It was a happy coincidence that their wedding day also fell on Canada Day, so the Canadians in the group had a great time celebrating their patriotic pride together. We are over the moon for you, Dom + Dan. We wish you all the happiness you deserve and more. Congratulations!

Molly + Mark = Married

Molly and Mark were married on a warm June afternoon at Strawbale Winery in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We enjoyed shooting this wedding so much. There could not be two more easy-going, loving, and kind-hearted people in South Dakota. They wanted a wedding that celebrated not only their union, but also their communities and families […]

We enjoyed shooting this wedding so much. There could not be two more easy-going, loving, and kind-hearted people in South Dakota. They wanted a wedding that celebrated not only their union, but also their communities and families that brought them to the place they are now. They certainly accomplished what they set out for and more. The day began with each of them getting ready with their favorite people and sharing some champagne, after which they headed out to Strawbale Winery for photos and to prep for the ceremony.  Their ceremony was heartfelt and accompanied by a beautiful string quartet and lemonade.  Afterward they headed over to the stylish Icon lounge for their reception.  On arrival every guest took a Polaroid photo of themselves to paste into a guest book; definitely one of the sweetest and most creative guest book ideas we’ve seen! It was a great day. Molly and Mark, we’re so happy for you both, Congratulations!

Holly + Barry = Engaged

If there is one thing we know about our couples, it’s that they are always up for an adventure. Getting your photo taken can be a vulnerable experience, so even though most of our couples have a few minutes of feeling nervous about being in front of the camera, after a little while they throw […]

Getting your photo taken can be a vulnerable experience, so even though most of our couples have a few minutes of feeling nervous about being in front of the camera, after a little while they throw caution to the wind and have fun with it. Holly and Barry are definitely up for anything, and I loved photographing them where they call home in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We started at the Diner DTSF where they had their first date. Barry wins some major points for showing up 45 minutes early to get a table for them while Holly finished getting ready. We took advantage of the balmier-than-average January temps for a few photos downtown (the grimiest ally ways make for the best photos, no?) and then jumped over to the Leif Erickson park for some photos with their right hand man, their dog Easton. Holly was prepared with some warm hot chocolate, which Easton loved more than the couple. At the end of the session Holly had an idea for a photo with them *in the snow* and promptly jumped into a pile of fresh snow, and suggested Barry lay down in it. This is when I knew these two were our people. Usually we are the ones suggesting and directing how photos might evolve, but when Holly and Barry took the lead for photos they wanted, I had no choice but to go on *their* adventure, which made for a great time all around. Can’t wait for October when they tie the knot in The Middle Of Nowhere, SD.

Morgan and Kraig were married a few weeks back on a glorious summer day in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Our Midwest Associate Photographer Abby was there to capture all the fun and we are loving their bright, colorful wedding day filled with joy. Before their ceremony at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph, the two shared a private moment in McKennan Park for some photos and to savor the anticipation before they joined their guests at the church. The grandeur of the cathedral always photographs in such a classy manner, so seeing Morgan in her bespoke wedding gown and Kraig in a tuxedo really added some magic to their traditional ceremony. They joined friends and family at the Coliseum of Sioux Falls downtown where they celebrated with a scrumptious meal and a custom popcorn bar. We have loved seeing this day through Abby’s lens and have been a little bit jealous of Morgan and Kraig’s Italian Adventure after their wedding as they honeymooned across the pond. Congratulations you two! We wish you the best!

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!

Leah and Erik are a dream team. Compassionate, thoughtful, talented and dare I say jolly (those of you who know Erik understand), we are smitten with this pair. We had the privilege of capturing their Sioux Falls, South Dakota wedding earlier in August and had a fantastic day. You really know that it’s been a great wedding when you leave work grinning ear to ear. They got ready at Erik’s family home surrounded by their friends and family. They had their first look and a few portraits together at the beautiful Terrace Park (where we could shoot all day long under the willow trees). After some additional portraits with their family and wedding party we headed downtown for their heartfelt ceremony that was filled with happy tears. The celebration continued with the sweetest bubble exit and ride on a horse drawn carriage (midwest style) and a great party at the new Hilton Garden Inn downtown. Leah and Erik, we wish you both years of happiness together! It’s been a pleasure. Congratulations!
