"Amy is amazing. She captured our daughters beauty as we see her. Outdoors and not in a studio is the way to do pictures. I will be passing her name on to everyone I know. I have never had a photographer take the time as Amy did and I am grateful for the chance to meet her and see her talents first hand. Thank you Amy."

"We are from Wisconsin and were having our vow renewal in South Dakota at Chapel in the Hills this past May 23rd. I was able to find Amy via Yelp and ask her many questions as well as get quoted a price. She captured some of the most beautiful shots of our day and family. I am truly happy and thankful we found her! She was very patient and listened to ideas of what we wanted. We were also able to submit ideas via email and Facebook. She took many candid shots as well. The processing time was about a week and the only problem is deciding between all of them. Each is unique and just as good as the first. I would recommend her for your special event or wedding. She was a true professional!"

"I asked Amy to come to my yoga studio to capture some "in the moment" shots. She did exactly that. It was such a pleasure to work with Amy. I appreciated that she took care of things with very little direction on my part. She also had some really great, meaningful suggestions for me. It's clear that Amy cares very much about the work she does and the clients she serves."
~ Karen Buxcel via Facebook on October 30, 2016
"Amy did a wonderful job with our family photos! She chose the perfect spot at a nearby park, which had great lighting and beautiful landscape.

"Amy did a photo shoot of personal pictures of me with superb results! Not only was it a pleasure to work with her, she was able to capture the essence of who I am and what I find beautiful and unique about myself. She charged a fair price, provided the pictures very quickly, and even highlighted a few of her favorites as a head start for me. I highly recommend Amy!"
