What do you get when you combine the beauty of Rapid City and the Black Hills with a Rapid City wedding photographer that has an absolute joy and passion for capturing love stories? A guarantee that your photos will tell the story of your big day and more.
Why should I hire you?
Here’s the deal: I grew up attending weddings. No, I wasn’t raised by wedding crashers. My father is what I’d like to call the local minstrel in my hometown. He has sung and officiated more weddings than I could count. I would often tag along and end up filling in where help was needed, whether it be running music, assisting the photographers or even serving a meal. All the while I was enamored at the way each couple was able to make their day entirely unique to them.
What does that have to do with me?
Fast forward to the present day where I still attend weddings, but this time with one job* in mind: Being the wedding photographer who tells the love story of the couple. I’ve never lost my love for the unique details, if anything that love has grown. Therefore every wedding I shoot will never look the same – it will always be high-quality work capturing the story of the couple. I love finding those little details and the unplanned moments that make this once-in-a-lifetime day especially memorable.
As a recent bride myself, I understand how quicky the day goes and you barely remember how it actually happened. It’s easy to suddenly forget if you saw that third cousin on your mother’s side. Or maybe you find yourself thinking back and asking if your guests even had a good time celebrating. Everything is a blur – that’s why you deserve to have high-quality photos that retell the day for you!
* I’ve also served a lot of roles – and have no problem stepping up to help you on your day when I have a moment to put the camera down. Questions about your timeline? I’m your scheduler. Need someone to pin on boutonnieres? I come prepared with my own Band-Aids. Concerned that crazy relative is going to do something embarrassing at the wrong time? I’m the referee. Seriously – I’ve done it all!
Ok…sounds good. What else should I know?
I am a wedding photographer primarily based in Rapid City and the Black Hills area but give me enough notice and I am more than happy to schedule a road trip to anywhere in South Dakota and the surrounding area to help tell your wedding story. Need proof I’m not afraid to travel? Check out this wedding I photographed in Mitchell, South Dakota as well as this one in White Lake, South Dakota.
As much as I would love to spend every day at a wedding, there’s only so much cake that can be consumed and mainain a healthy-ish lifestyle. Therefore, I can only schedule a limited number of weddings each year. It is important to book early in the planning process to guarantee I can be there (and trust me, I want to be your wedding photographer).t
Coverage starts at $2,000. Please contact me to get the nitty gritty details about the investment I ask from you for me to be there on your special day. Sorry, I’d love to just wedding crash and take some photos, but a girl has to get paid.
Still have more questions? Contact me and let’s grab coffee (or whatever your beverage of choice)! I’d love to answer your questions and talk about how amazing your day will be – because it will be amazing!
