The air feels warm and cool simultaneously, like blasting your car’s heater with your windows down, barreling down a mountain road, singing a favorite song at the top of your lungs. And your heart beats faster as you go in for a kiss and you can’t help but smile and marvel because the only thing more beautiful than the landscape is the person in front of you. And if you could bottle it up, you would.
Your daughter’s auburn hair sparkles in the glow of the last light of the day, while she nuzzles into your shoulder and your son plays on your lap. You count his perfect eyelashes and wonder how long he will let you pick out his outfits or when ‘mama’ will turn into ‘mom’. And your heart could burst into a million pieces while oblivious meadowlarks sing their evening song. And if you could bottle it up, you would.
These are the moments I orchestrate, that you will relive every time you page through the albums that will move from home to home, through all of your eras. And in thirty years, you’ll tuck your granddaughter’s auburn hair behind her ear, while she sits on your lap paging through your memories, and she’ll know the legacy of love that came before her.
And if you could bottle it up, you would.
After many years of photographing large and extravagant weddings, I turned my focus to documenting intimate weddings and elopements. Whether you want to exchange vows at sunrise on top of Black Elk Peak in Custer State Park, or gather your closest friends and family among the aspens in Black Hills National Forest, I’m here to capture your day in a way that feels authentic to your love story.
I strive to get to know my couples so well, that I can anticipate their needs throughout a wedding day and also know how to look for the moments that truly matter. My service style is very communicative and detail-oriented.
