Madi & Kolten

We definitely did a little hiking for this session. With high water levels and lots of mosquitoes we ventured out to one of my favorite spots taking an unusual path but totally worth the work! These two were absolutely adorable and so fun to photograph.

Breuer Family | Family Photography Mandan, North Dakota

“I’ll ride in on a sunny day, sing you a song, steal your heart away, like a cowboy.”

On a gorgeous August evening I joined the Breuer family for a perfect family session. Cahl has the best blue eyes and his smile was worth the work. This family is basically magazine worthy, they are so adorable and they have personalities to match.

Bly Family | Family Photography Mandan, North Dakota

Bly Family

I love when families invite me to their homes or ranches/farms for pictures. It's a nice change of scenery and often presents a fun challenge of finding good light while getting to do a little exploring. The Bly family had a beautiful big tree with a tire swing in their yard which made for some great lighting while the sun dropped a little where we took most of the pictures. We also battled the mosquitoes for some field pictures before ending the evening in front of some old silos.

Ashley + Kyle | Engagement Photography

Life is enough, but so are you

Ashley invited me out to her family ranch this past May to capture their engagement session. We spent the evening riding around in her brothers truck going from gorgeous back drop to gorgeous back drop. It's always a pleasure to travel out to couples homes, meet their family and photograph in locations that have meaning to them. These two happy-go-lucky love birds will also be getting married at Ashley's family ranch this August. Thank you for choosing me to adventure with, laugh with, and ultimately document your love story.

Kelsea + Nathan | Engagement Photography Western North Dakota

Their love is like a romance novel I can't stop reading. 

A few weeks back I traveled to Western North Dakota to meet and photograph Kelsea and Nathan. My husband knew Nathan from his Professional Bull Riding days and their parents are old date night friends but I had never met him and felt like a semi fan-girl from watching him on TV. Have you ever met someone for the first time and felt like you've been best friends for years? That's the feeling I got from hanging out with Kelsea all evening. She was so incredibly kind and obviously good looking! When we arrived we were greeted by the normal ranch dogs and I found myself in complete awe of what they call their "backyard". Our night consisted of many laughs, the boys chatting ranch life, and me being in photographer Heaven. We battled the wind, timed out the lighting, and managed not to roll the ranger as we trekked up and down the hills. Thank you Kelsea and Nathan for inviting us to your home, capturing your love, and gaining new friends. I can't wait to celebrate your wedding day and watch your love story grow for many years to come!
