Spearfish Canyon Black Hills Engagement Session

After driving across flat plains for hours the beauty of the Black Hills in South Dakota seems to somehow come out of no where but it never disappoints! It is so much fun to be able to incorporate locations that have special meaning to couples when doing engagement sessions. We started off in the spot where Wade proposed to Erin and ended at the family cabin having a cold one around the fire, it doesn’t get much better then that!

Liz & Kaleb Winter Wedding : Blue Haven Barn : C. Herrboldt Photography

On a quite chilly day here in South Dakota Elizabeth & Kaleb had the perfect winter wedding. Blue Haven Barn is one of my favorite venues in Sioux Falls for weddings and receptions, it is so light and airy that even on a cold day you can feel warm and bright inside! The simple and classic details with navy and greenery added to the beauty of the venue. 

Its hard not to smile when you spend time with these two, their love and joy is apparent to everyone around them. They braved the cold with me to capture some beautiful outdoor images as well! Being a part of their special day was truly a privilege and joy and i can't wait to see how they grow as a couple in the years to come!

I also have to give a huge shout out to my second shooter Tagan Fjelsted for always capturing unique and creative shots!

Lindsey & Chris ~ Gloria Dei/Holiday Inn Express Brandon ~Sioux Falls Wedding Photographer ~ C. Herrboldt Photography

On a beautiful spring day i had the privilege to photograph Lindsey & Chris's big day. I have know Lindsey for over 5 years and couldn't be happier that she found her soul mate in Chris! Lindsey and i share some serious ocd tendencies so of course i knew the details of her big day would be perfect down to the last detail :) 

Also have to give a shout out to my second shooter Mychelle for helping capture some awesome special moments as well!

Carmen & Jeff ~ Holiday Inn Downtown ~ Sioux Falls Wedding Photographer ~ C. Herrboldt Photography

When i first met Carmen & Jeff at their engagement session i knew their wedding day would be a blast! They are such a fun loving and easy going couple. Downtown Sioux Falls made the perfect backdrop for the first look, bridal party and then sunset portraits. The Holiday Inn downtown did a beautiful job with the reception and the food was amazing! 

Bridgette & Ryan Chicago Commitment Ceremony

Traveling to Chicago for Bridgette & Ryan's Commitment Ceremony was a treat on so many levels! You can not help but be drawn to this laid back and adventurous couple! The details reflect so much the personality of Bridgette in a such a classy boho theme.
