Wedding Photography Brookings, South Dakota Modern Artistic

Andrew + Makayla – Brookings, SD Wedding

Wedding Photography was a blast with this little family. Studio Blu has a sweet spot for little families! Watching Makayla and Andrew with there daughter is magical. They are funny and fun together. She clearly lights up their life!

Photographing this wedding was so much fun. The common thread that Andrew and I have. The closeness we felt to our fathers. The laughing in the car. I don’t remember ever crying from laughter while photographing a wedding before.

Andrew decided that Tory and I need a reality TV show… Kind of a genius idea. Makayla clearly is used to laughing out loud. So much damn fun with you guys. Can we do it again?

We started out in their beautiful home in Brookings, on what turned out to be the perfect day. MaKayla and her girls were getting ready throughout the house. We laughed with them as we prepared for the first look. For a really personal first look we photographed just in front of their home. With Andrew waiting outside, MaKayla stepped out the front door to meet him under the cover of their shade tree. After a personal moment we proceeded to photograph the two of them, and their daughter in front of the cottage that they live in. It was meant to be photographed.

After that, the four of us hopped in the car and journeyed to several non traditional spots for more modern wedding photography locations. An industrial building, an old storage shed and some other fantastic backgrounds. Then we headed to an architecturally stunning church where they were to be married. After a beautiful ceremony we headed downtown for some drinks and then they made their entrance to the reception venue just a few miles south of town. The reception was put together by Makayla’s aunt, and was well thought out and beautiful. Under what has to have been the largest tent I have ever seen, the guests congregated and dined. Immediately following the dinner, everyone was invited up to the second floor of the barn to a stunning venue for a dance. Everyone was taken aback by the space. It was one of the best adventures of 2016 for us!
