Holly + Barry = Married

Holly and Barry were our last wedding of 2016 – and boy did they wrap things up with a bang! Every part of working with them has been so delightful, they are really a wonderful couple. We may sound like a broken record but we truly feel like we have the BEST clients. Holly and […]

Every part of working with them has been so delightful, they are really a wonderful couple. We may sound like a broken record but we truly feel like we have the BEST clients. Holly and Barry were married on a glorious fall day in Brookings, South Dakota. Holly and her ladies got ready at the ceremony site – McCrory Gardens – which is a new-to-us venue (only because this was our first wedding in Brookings) and¬†truly a stunning place. Holly and Barry opted not to see one another pre-ceremony, which built an excitement and anticipation as the couple saw one another for the first time during the ceremony. We love the photos of Barry as he fights back tears as Holly walks down the aisle. It’s a moment many women envision as they plan their weddings and truthfully not a reaction we see all the time (which is *totally* fine ūüôā ) but was super sweet to document none the less. The autumn light shone brightly on them as they exchanged vows and their guests were busting with joy to hug them afterward. The party continued at a private residence barn down the road where Holly and Barry were spoiled with lots of love outpoured by their family and friends. It was a fantastic day – and one we were honored to document. Holly and Barry, you don’t need any luck where you’re headed in life together but we wish you all the love in the world as you navigate your new milestone together. Congratulations!

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. 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!

Noelle + Chris = Married

Noelle and Chris had such a fantastic wedding day. It’s always such a treat for me to photograph a wedding in my hometown of Yankton, South Dakota – and their wedding was no exception. The day started at the Historic Cramer Kenyon house where the ladies all got ready together. The house was buzzing with […]

It’s always such a treat for me to photograph a wedding in my hometown of Yankton, South Dakota – and their wedding was no exception. The day started at the Historic Cramer Kenyon house where the ladies all got ready together. The house was buzzing with excitement when I arrived and Noelle was cool as a cucumber, handling¬†any day-of nerves like a pro. She opened gifts from Chris which included a stunning necklace and tickets to see Beyonc√© live (nice work, Chris) as¬†laughter echoed through the hallways. Having your wedding party get ready at a home or historic place like this makes for such a great mood as the final preparations occur. Chris and his guys made their way to the Cramer Kenyon house in time for the bride and groom to share a private first look. Noelle beams when she’s around Chris, and Chris¬†is pretty much always smiling when Noelle is around. The rest of the day went off without a hitch: we went to the Lewis and Clark Lake for some fun bridal party photos, asked Noelle and Chris to trust us as we dragged them to the most random field off the side of the road for couple portraits, their ceremony by the Missouri¬†River was beautiful and heartfelt, and the party was filled with laughter and fun down the road at the historically renovated Old Mill wedding reception space downtown…it was a good day. The party wouldn’t have been complete without the outpouring of love from their family and friends who showed so much support for the newlyweds (the pizza fest for dinner also didn’t hurt anything!) Noelle and Chris, we are so happy for you two. Congratulations on such an exciting time in your lives!

Cheryl + Alex = Married

When we started this business we had no idea what would happen. We didn’t think we’d eventually be shooting in over a dozen states each year – and we definitely didn’t think we’d get to work with other talented photographers and showcase their lovely work for our clients. When Cheryl and Alex (who¬†live in Missouri) […]

We didn’t think we’d eventually be shooting in over a dozen states each year – and we definitely didn’t think we’d get to work with other talented photographers and showcase their lovely work for our clients. When Cheryl and Alex (who¬†live in Missouri) contacted us about working with Summer Street for their Wedding in Cheryl’s hometown in South Dakota, the stars aligned and our Midwest Associate Abby was able to shoot their wedding. Our new friends from Sioux Falls, Jenny, joined Abby for the day and the results are wonderful. This is not surprising, given Cheryl + Alex’s kind hearted demeanors and unique love for one another. Once they added in some beautiful elements to celebrate their day in style, we had¬†ourselves a pretty fantastic day. Cheryl and Alex, we’ve had such a great time working with you both and we are over the moon for you. You truly deserve one another. Congratulations to the newlyweds, and Cheers to Abby and Jenny for a beautiful set of images!

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!

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!

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!
