All this heat has me thinking about how nice and cold it was just a short time ago. WAIT! Before you start throwing tomatoes at me for talking about the “W” word, just hear me out. It made me look back through some of my images from last winter and I just had to share a few! Back in February, I got the awesome opportunity to work with Walker Down the Aisle and Brittany Elizabeth Images on a project.
Both Brittany and I wanted to do shoots that were a little darker. Our styles of editing and shooting are quite different so with the crazy brilliant mind of Alyssa from Walker Down the Aisle, we were able to make this amazing American Gothic Wedding come to life! We had one meeting to discuss what we all thought it should be and then BAM, Alyssa made it come to life. The twist on this shoot was BOTH Brittany and I would be shooting, side-by-side for most of it, and we would both be editing in our own styles.
If you head over to WDTA blog you’ll be able to see her blog post of images.The results were pretty awesome to see how two different photographers can interpret what is in front of them. It helps illustrate how it is important that you find a photographer that matches not only the personality you like, but who also has the style you are looking for.
Here are some of my favorite images from this dark and moody styled shoot!

styled wedding shoots are so much fun, and as a photographer you captured this perfectly. Do you travel outside of Sioux Falls at all?
I love to travel! I recently went to Jamaica (you can check out Amber and Collin’s blog post!) and have a few other trips planned. If you know someone looking for a destination wedding photographer I am totally ready to go!

Breathtaking work!! You are so incredibly talented! I wish I lived near Sioux Falls and needed a Wedding Photographer!
Wished I was in Sioux Falls!!! Gorgeous wedding photography.
I LOVE these! Are you able to tell me the location of that abandoned building they’re posing by?
Hello! They actually aren’t abandoned but on a farm of a friend. Sorry I can’t share that location as it’s a private residence! Thank you for understanding!
