Meet the Photographer

Over the past few years of building this Photography Business based out of Bismarck North Dakota, and serving the beautiful Midwest.  Through my experiences I’ve been learning more about people and the importance of capturing something raw and emotional over something perfect and posed.  It is my passion to bring out the beauty in every season of life you are in.  Whether that is your graduation, engagement, wedding, birth of your child, or the beauty of a mother in the thick of a busy and fulfilling life… Whatever moments that you are wanting to treasure in the years to come… making those very moments come to life.  The ones that seeing an image takes you right back to the day and time of life when it occurred.  That’s what I am doing this photography thing for.  And as my mission states… This Season Matters!

North Dakota State Fair Director, Renae Korslien In May I had the opportunity to work with the amazing owners/editors on a few stories for the upcoming June 2018 issue of the Inspiring Women Magazine.  We headed north to Minot, ND where the hugely popular, and well loved North Dakota State Fair. There we interviewed the North Dakota State Fair Director.  You can read the whole story on the link posted below, but I would love to say a few things I learned about the amazing  Renae Korslien...  First she is absolutely a hoot... she told stories of when she started with the Fair back in 1974, how she loves the kids and the ag industry, how her team & community means so much to her, and how she LOVES the Fair... always has.   It was an incredible honor to have been able to photograph her during [...]

We used the Painted Prairie for our wedding day and it was the best decision we could’ve made! Our pictures turned out breathtaking. Rachael was so much fun and made the day smooth and relaxing. She easily rolled with the changes and had SO many great ideas! Rachael truly made us feel special that day and the pictures reflect that. I would highly recommend using this photographer for any pictures needs, but especially wedding pictures. I am so glad we choose her. I have hundreds of beautiful pictures from our wedding day that I will forever cherish! She captured so many delicate moments and I am forever thankful for that. Thanks Painted Prairie! You will definitely be our go to for future picture needs

Rachael took photos for my labor and delivery. This was my first birth, and it was important to me that it was all natural. It was so wonderful to be able to focus and have my husband full attention and for neither of us to have to worry about capturing some important moments.
Rachael was so professional, and just in the background, but she captured everything that was so important to me.
Seeing the pictures are so special, truly a treasure. Seeing them just brings me right to the very moment I fell in love with my baby.
Rachael is a gem, I can’t be thankful enough that she could save those memories for me.

We had a family session this fall, and really love our photos! Rachael got several great shots, despite some chilly weather and a tearful toddler. We can’t wait for next time, Rachael!

Long before I ever picked up a real camera I had this passion inside of me… the kind that can envision something from thought to site in my own head before it all ever even plays out.  One of the most important things for me as an artist is to tell an authentic story of who my client is, where they love to be, how they thrive in their lives, how they interact with their families, and how to most importantly be themselves.  Celebrating who they are right now, in this season, when no one else is around.  No highlight reel, no emotions left unexplored.  I guess what I’m trying to say, is real life…. in all its beauty.  Moments to treasure… #ThisSeasonMatters
