At BRICKS we love to photograph real, everyday people in normal, eclectic or even badass locations. No two families are the same and no two images can be created equal. We care deeply for our clients and seek to provide the most memorable experiences, while we push your boundaries, comfort levels, and document the stories that matter most. 

It isn't an old wives tale, that if you are comfortable with your  photographer your images will be more authentic. Part of the BRICKS experience is building real relationships with our clients. As photographers we have to be real and raw with you, so you can have fun, feel comfortable, and walk away with beautiful and authentic imagery. We will break you out of your shells. If all else fails we are not afraid to use a little sarcasm, some silliness and a touch of bribery! You decide which family member needs what! 


South Dakota and upper midwest wedding + PORTRAIT photographer

We are so excited that you are interested in choosing BRICKS to document all of your family moments! We believe in real moments, playing ring around the rosie, that animals are family members, tantrums are part of life (no matter how old you are) and chasing sunsets is as natural slapping a mosquito. We capture the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.     

If you are ready for a completely different kind of photography experience, then let's go on an adventure together!

We walk you, hand-in-hand, through the whole process to customize your portrait session and collection and make it unique to you and your family. Your job is to relax and get back to enjoying what's important - your family time together! It's part of our experience to help guide you through the photography process so you can feel confident, not only in your images, but that you'll have an unforgettable experience when having your pictures taken.

People say the first thing they notice is my eyes and then my massively expressive facial features. Well, the personality is as big as eyes, and the smile. BUT I am very easy-going, a little quirky and I get a little giddy with excitement when I'm shooting. I snort when I laugh really hard, and squeal with delight after taking an amazing photo. - "Don't move. but you have to freaking see this", is a common phrase coming out of mouth!
I moved to South Dakota 10 years ago and still travel across the US for sessions and weddings, so whatever adventure you’re embarking! I would love to join you on the ride
