Best of 2016


Putting together this post was NO EASY TASK. I already have a hard time pairing down ONE session to blog, but over 42 sessions in one post?? Yikes. I’ve crisscrossed the midwest many times, traveled as far as Tennessee and Florida with my camera and met some pretty amazing people this year, many of whom have become good friends of ours. Each of you have improved and stepped up how I do business and I’ve learned so much my head hurts! Probably biggest of all, I’ve learned to take the time to look back, celebrate every success (even if it feels small) and thank the Lord for each one before pushing towards the next goal. With that spirit in mind, here’s some things to celebrate about 2016:

|| new website (Tonic, you’re bomb)

|| new bridal guide (about to go to the lab again!)

|| first print feature (thanks, Dainty Obsessions)

|| new wedding timeline and pricing guides

|| first styled shoot (with one TOP team all around Sioux Falls and from CA)

|| new wedding albums

|| two sweetheart giveaways (collaboration with my friends at Harold’s Photo)

|| new logo by Vita from Pop Calligraphy

|| entirely new business organization software (17hats, you basically saved my life)

|| featured wedding photographer at Bridal Gallery Sioux Falls

|| finalist in Shoot & Share’s 2016 photo contest

|| featured on Artsy Couture

|| featured vendor on Dainty Obsessions

|| listed in top 19 wedding photographers in Sioux Falls by Expertise

Whether you vowed your life to someone this year, celebrated another summer with family or said goodbye to each other before a long deployment, I will never take for granted the trust each of you put in my promise to capture your relationships to the best of my ability and in the most beautiful way possible. I’m thrilled about what’s around the corner for next year… every couple I’ve had the opportunity to meet is bursting with creativity and life, and I couldn’t be happier to create lifelong memories with you all in 2017. Thank you for an incredible year!

Bye, 2016!
