Kukla Wedding | Killdeer, North Dakota

October 15th, 2016

Pase and Kali said "I Do" in beautiful Killdeer, North Dakota on October 15th, 2016. The entire wedding party got ready in a gorgeous cabin along Lake Ilo that belonged to Pase's mother. There is nothing I love more then a country wedding! Thanks for making my sunset dreams come true :)

I was so thrilled when Pase and Kali let me steal them and their entire wedding party for some sunset pictures!

"You can't rush something you want to last forever."

Shayla & Jamie joined me on a VERY cold afternoon out at  Black Leg Ranch  . We trekked  through the deep snow and battled the wind and cold for these pictures. The two will be married this summer and I am over the moon excited to photograph their wedding at my favorite venue this side of the Missouri!

Travis & Jennifer said "I Do" on August 13th, 2016

Travis & Jennifer were married outside of a gorgeous barn in Lincoln, ND. It was the perfect August day, no wind, warm weather, and fun people! The two said I do in an open field under the shade of trees. The evening was kicked off with great music and lots of dancing inside this rustic barn! Thank you for including me in your wedding, I had a blast photographing your day and enjoyed the classic car pictures!

Lisa & Bennett | Mandan, ND | Engagement

I am head-over-heels excited for this wedding! This will be my third Johnson wedding and I have pretty much fell in love with the family. Each time I photograph Lisa & Bennett it feels less like work and more like hanging out with friends. They are so easy to pose and a blast to spend time with. Bennett personally picked out this spot on his families land, I think he nailed it! Every time I see Lisa she is so fashionable, I was ready to steal those boots! See you crazy kids in a month for the big "I Do".

Abby & Nolan said "I Do" on July 2nd, 2016

"Explore it. Adore it. Medora" If you live in North Dakota you have seen the commercials and heard the saying numerous times. I L.O.V.E. Medora! It's such a beautiful fun town. Between the old fashion shops and restaurants, to the stunning landscape, Medora weddings never fail to excite me. Abby & Nolan had a gorgeous wedding in Beach, North Dakota followed by a fun evening in Medora.

Here in North Dakota, the wind always blows. Abby rocked the windy day and nailed this image, no effort necessary!

I love this moment. Watching a father give away his daughter is so special, I frequently choke up.

This was my first time photographing a 701 Design + Events reception and they absolutely blew my mind! The details were impeccable and the transformation from gymnasium to this beautiful reception is incredible! I highly recommend them to any bride searching for a decorator!

Katie & Travis | Sentinel Butte, ND | Engagement

Katie & Travis invited me to their ranch in Western North Dakota last week for their engagement session. Because we live in North Dakota, the wind was blowing like crazy, naturally. After a few location stops and some good luck, we were able to find a few spots where the wind was blocked.

I was in love with the rich smells of sage and wild flowers all around. The sun began to set and we were able to capture some stunning images in what I like to call "The Golden Hour".
