+ now that you know a bit about me, I want to get to know YOU!

hey friends!

My name is Bailee, I am a South Dakota-based couple, elopement + wedding photographer. I love the real, the authentic, the raw; especially in my photography. 

I grew up in a small-town and LOVE going on adventures and traveling the globe! II have been with my fiancé for nearly FIVE years (high school sweethearts - he proposed this past New Years Eve!). My favorite color is rust.. I love car jams (country, oldies, pop, etc.), singing in the shower, cacti (when I can keep them alive), puppies, cheesy foods, lake days + coffee (iced americano with cream is my jam). I am all about keeping it real while having fun. Can't find me? I am probably at Target.


I have been taking photos for pretty much my entire life, starting back in my 4H days. I grew up spending a lot of my time on my grandpas farm riding my horses, getting in trouble for taking the four wheelers into the pasture with my cousin/best friend, and climbing/jumping across hay bales. I have had Snip, my current horse since he was just a little dude, he is now 4 and not so little anymore.
