jeff + amber | engagement session

the great thing about shooting for your friend, is that you can barter goods. in this case, we trade hair services for engagement photos. all bartering aside, amber is one of my best friends. she's like a sister. she's marrying one of my childhood friends who's like a brother to me.

i gotta say that i'm HONORED to be her maid of, well, honor. and i take my duty seriously and consider it an important role. i'll be the one calming her nerves and cheering her on. we all need this when we're going through big changes in life.

i'll stop babbling now.

here's the stuff you came here for:

class of 2012 | michelle

it never feels like work, when we're hiking around in beautiful minnehaha falls park. especially when im hanging out with this lovely, fun young lady...

i couldn't get over how gorgeous the light was with the mist glowing around her in the waterfalls. i'd say it matches her sunny, glowing personality.

i love her simple yet sassy sense of fashion!

mason/bachmeier | family session

what a gorgeous day we had for a shoot in minnehaha falls park. the lighting, the people, the outfits and their adorable four legged child, rocky. enjoy!

class of 2012 | sally

even though sally is (obviously) gorgeous on the outside, her warm and friendly personality won me over instantly. she's very mellow and up for anything. she's a talented dancer, so even when she was tired of smiling for me, i asked her to do some dance jumps on the beach and she BROUGHT IT.
