Hey there, I am Mariah and I want to congratulate you on your engagement! It's such an exciting time of your life and should be captured in a beautiful and unique way. I firmly believe that each couple is unique and your photos should reflect just how original your relationship is. I am passionate about getting to know my clients as I believe it allows me to capture genuine emotions. I would love to not be thought of as a vendor but as a friend that you can trust to capture the best day of your life. If you are up for making a new friend and having your love story captured in a fun and original way, heck send me a message and I would love to get to know you.
In the meantime, I will tell you a few facts about myself. I grew up in a small town in Minnesota north of the cities. I recently got married and moved to Brookings, SD. However, I am super close to my family and love having an excuse to make lots of trips back home to Minnesota. Brookings is very familiar to me as I spent 5 years going to college there and playing basketball for the Jacks. I love traveling, Springer Spaniels, horseback riding, and I always crave a good burger and Diet Coke! I am happily married to the biggest goofball. He loves to hunt and fish in his free time as well as build beautiful woodwork! Together, we love being outdoors, playing with our energetic dog Jackson and hanging out on the lake. We are both passionate about our faith and continue to pursue God’s plan for our lives.
My personality and my relationship with my husband have a direct reflection on my photography and allow me to connect with my clients in a more meaningful way. I love adventurous couples as it’s something I love doing with my husband as well. I am always up for something “different” and even if it seems far fetched, I’d be thrilled to hear about it. I enjoy making my clients laugh to provide them with the most authentic photos, So, be prepared to laugh at my bad jokes or lack of coordination, I also might poke fun at one of your groomsmen every now and again so if you have an opinion on which one, let me know. I am energetic and have a “git-r-done” mentality and I want my clients to be as excited about their love story as I am to capture it!. I may be biased but warm/vibrant photos are my favorite. Oh, and a good black and white photo never gets old!
So, If you are ready for an adventure, a good belly laugh, and so much love, you've come to the right place and I cannot wait to meet you!
