Kyle + Brittany

Kyle and Brittany's wedding was absolutely amazing. The entire day was incredible, for sure a FAVORITE this wedding season! Brittany has beautiful style, as you'll see. Everything was so well thought out and brought together seamlessly. Kyle and Brittany share a genuine love that is so evident to all who come near. These two are one of the most kind and gentle couples I have ever met! It was an honor to document their love story.

We started off in the basement of  Splitrock Lutheran Church. It was a quaint little church on a gravel road, just my style! The girls were full of joy, laughter and positive vibes from the moment I walked in!

Then it was time for the first look. My favorite part of the day! And lucky for me, we got to do FOUR first looks! It was a day full of surprises for the whole family! Brittany chose to keep her dress a total mystery. It was a special moment when she finally revealed herself to her dad, mother-in-law, bridesmaids, and of course, her groom.

I hid in the back of the chapel to capture an image of Brittany and Kyle reading their love notes to each other. Is this not the sweetest moment? Then it was finally time to say "I DO"!

After their ceremony, Brittany and Kyle jumped in a 1949 Cadillac Series 75 Limousine. It was beautiful! What a perfect way to travel to your reception. Brad at Vintage Occasions was an amazing chauffeur.

Brittany's style really came out at the reception. There were personal touches, gold sparkles, flowers and candles everywhere! It was a dream to photograph! I wish I had room to show them all!

After dinner, guests had the opportunity to watch their vows spoken at the ceremony! Miranda at Beyond Social did a same day edit for them! It was so fun to see them watch their ceremony!

Ben Davis kept the party rocking ALL NIGHT long! He is the best DJ around!

Brittany and Kyle. You guys were so great. I'm so happy I got to capture your day for you. Enjoy every second of being husband and wife, and bask in that newlywed glory for years to come! xoxo

Chelsie + Lance

I LOVED my time with Chelsie and Lance. They are an amazing couple, SO in love, and not afraid to show the world. Their happiness was easy to capture, and their day went just as planned.
All the ladies began their day casually getting ready together, everyone making sure Chelsie had everything she needed.

Chelsie had the most amazing bouquet! I could have photographed it all day long. 
A shout out to to Simply Devine

The first look! SO adorable! I think Lance was just a tad bit nervous.

Chelsie and Lance had extra time set aside for portraits. I LOVE it when my couples make their portrait time a priority.


We visited Lance's heifers during their engagement shoot, it was only fitting to do it again on their wedding day! I'm SO glad we did. I just love this portrait of them.

Then it was time to go get married!

We had a few minutes before the reception started, so we took the time to get some fun portraits with the bridal party. 

After dinner, we snuck down to the river to get a few last romantic portriats while the sun was still out.

I love you both so much, thank you for entrusting me with your memories.

Austin & Laura

Laura was the most laid back bride I have ever met. She was cool, calm and collected all day long. As her steadiness transferred to her groom, everyone could see Austin's nerves calm after seeing his bride for the first time.
We started off the day getting ready, and reading love notes.

Laura's bouquet was amazing! The colors of the day were incredible together.

Laura reading her love letter from Austin. It was such a special moment.

One of the SWEETEST first looks!

GAH! Laura you were such a gorgeous bride!

Thunderstik Lodge served as an amazing venue.

Is it a Vonnie Cake never disappoints! Beautiful and delicious!

I absolutely love it when the bride and groom take extra time for sunset photos! I loved these extra few minutes with the bridal party too! 

I loved how they were holding each other during their first dance!


Thank you Austin and Laura for letting me hang out with you on the most important day of your life!
