My Top Engagement Location Ideas To Plan Your Perfect Engagement Session

A Fun Spearfish Canyon Golf Engagement

A fun and eventful engagement could be just what you and your partner need for your session. It helps you get out of your comfort zone, feel relaxed and realize that you can release the pressure and just have fun together!

Adventure Mountain Rapid City Engagement

Choosing the outdoors and adventuring in the mountains is a lot of peoples cup of tea. This could be perfect for you and your partner if you are the adventure type, you love the outdoors and want the beautiful backdrops of the mountains.

Wild West Fort Meade Engagement

Including horses and fun elements that make your session more personal is a great idea. What would that look like for you? Including horses? Your favorite drinks? A special outfit from your first date? Deciding on an outdoor, western theme because that fits you and your partner is so fun!

Modern Badlands Field Engagement

If you’re looking for the modern type of engagement session with a little pop of nature, then this is it! The outdoor element allows for lots of variety in your day. With this type of session you can add in fancy or modern clothes to bring it full circle. It really is the perfect mix!

Greenhouse Rapid City Indoor Engagement

This location is one of my favorites! It is so beautiful and so unique. You can enjoy the indoors while also enjoying the beautiful greenery around you!

Downtown Rapid City Urban Engagement

Looking to have a local feel to your engagement photos? All while having fun in your downtown area? Having your engagement session downtown is the perfect idea! It’s casual, fun and easy going!

Outdoor Pactola Lake Engagement

If you are wanting the beautiful backdrop of a lake, then look no further! Deciding to do a lake engagement session is the best! We can even have fun in the water if you want to.

Motorcycle Engagement Shoot At Sylvan Lake & Custer State Park

This is another fun way to include what you and your partner love, like riding motorcycles. This was during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally! What fun element would you include during your engagement photos? These two were with me for their engagement photos and wedding photos.

Kind Words

“We had such a great experience with Sarah. She made us feel so comfortable, she know what she is doing, and her photo quality is excellent! Will definitely make use of her service again 😃” – Yolande + Henk

“Loved everything! She made me so comfortable in front of the camera and I had a blast! She really listens to what the clients want!” – Kayla + Heath

“Where do I begin? Not only has Sarah been so professional, but she has also been so supportive on every step of our photography journey for our wedding. Sarah made sure to communicate with me and ask if I had any questions throughout the entire last 8 months, even with our time zone difference. She not only took amazing photos of our amazing rainy wedding day but she was there helping get of my nerves, making sure I snacked and if I needed a break to take it. She made sure to ask about getting specific photos and really listened to what our vision was. You cannot beat how much she genuinely cares not only about you as the customer but as a friend as well. I will forever cherish the photographs and cant wait to work more with her. We have made an amazing friendship through this experience!! Can’t wait for another Sturgis Trip to come visit!” – Courtaney + Corey
