Best of 2017


2017 will likely go down as one of our favorites to date, both personally and in this world of photography! It’s so fun to be learning and growing together as a team, meeting new people and exploring beautiful places. I was staying pretty up to speed on blogging until wedding season hit hard and then I focused all my attention and energy on making sure our clients’ got their pictures back as fast as possible! Between shooting, editing, consults, albums and travels, let’s just say I have a LOT of catching up to do over here in the months ahead (and I can not WAIT). I figure we might as well get the biggest post out of the way first: my very top favorites from this last year. But this, friends, was no. easy. feat.

There are dozens and dozens of photos that I cut and am still dying to share (and will be soon), but in interest of not turning this post into a bigger bear than it already is, I was pi-ckyyy.

Some quick highlights from 2017 before we get started:

|| Around 45 sessions and weddings shot, 70+ booked

|| Real wedding featured over on Dainty Obsessions (thank you!)

|| Featured on How He Asked by the Knot

|| Almost entirely new gear (for my geeky friends, that included the 5D Mark III, 2 Phottix flashes, 100mm f/2.8L, 85mm f/1.8, 50mm f/1.2L, 24-70mm L II & a new ONA Brixton)

|| Invested in the Phantom 4 drone — more on that later!!

|| Made it to Finalist on Shoot & Share’s 2017 Photo Contest

|| Listed in Top 19 Wedding Photographers in Sioux Falls for 2017 by Expertise

|| Reached 50 five-star reviews

Another thing that’s grown this year is how much Ben and I have gotten to shoot together! He brings an invaluable set of skills with him when he comes, plus it’s like we get a scheduled-in date, so who can complain about that?! Okay, okay,  no more waiting — I give you: the best of 2017…
