The Photographer

My wife, Rachel, and I have been married since 2010 and have two children, Maggie and Rowan. We live in Brookings and have been rooted in South Dakota our entire lives.

I enjoy the outdoors, riding moped, design, binging Netflix, reading comics, and Apple products. I love Jesus, my wife, my daughter Maggie and son Rowan, music, traveling, my family, and serving others.

As a husband, I firmly believe in marriage and want to capture your story during the short time I get to lean in with you during this journey. I want your images to be real and authentic – not 'trendy' or 'perfect.' Your relationship and story together is what should shine through in your images.

My Approach

The best images happen when you can be you. I know how it feels to be in front of the camera and how awkward it can be. I’ll make things as laid back as possible, allowing you to focus on one another and the moments you’re creating with each other. Capturing you as you really are together is more important than recreating a pose found on Pinterest. These images you’ll look back on are real moments that unfolded naturally from your session. We will create intentional space for connection, where you reflect and focus on your journey together.
