Styled | Color Explosion

When the creative genius and sweet-as-ice-cream-sandwiches Emily Steffen emails you to collaborate on a styled shoot, you always say YES. Always. I have worked with Emily on several different shoots, workshops, and weddings over the years and I am telling you, she is nothing but pure joy. She instantly makes my clients feel at ease, her creativity is limitless, and there is always laughter and a lot of hugs throughout the day. She is pure talent, pure heart, and stays true to her core in everything she does.
For this shoot, we worked with a bright color palette with a mod tone. The overall approach was happy, cheerful, with a lot of color punched throughout. We connected with the ever-so-talented Breanna for hair and make-up and had THE most beautiful model, Ginger for the day. SO MUCH FUN!

Heather & Kyle


Heather and Kyle's wedding will forever be a favorite in my book. Their families are amazing, fun-loving, and have impeccable style. A referral from a past Bride and Groom, the moment I saw Heather's email in my inbox and the word Okoboji in her message, I couldn't wait to meet her and to work together with Heather and her mother Tresa to create something memorable and beautiful.

Heather and Kyle's wedding was the first wedding ceremony held at Arnold's Park City Park, overlooking Lake Okoboji. The ceremony was intimate, heartfelt, and absolutely stunning. From gorgeous letterpress invitations (including a vintage lake map pocketfold) to a nautical and bohemian, yet elegant design, each element of the day was everything that was Heather and Kyle's style. Complete with one rollercoaster ride and a sunset stroll on the dock, it was perfect in every way.
