Dakota Nature Park Engagement Photography | Brookings, South Dakota | Andrea Rodway Photography

Haley & Austin

Ahhh! This post makes me so happy! These two are from my beautiful home state of South Dakota! They're getting married next summer at The Canton Barn in my hometown, and I am beyond excited for them! We "met" viaFaceTime (isn't technology the best!) discussing their big day, their vision for their engagement session, and of course ... puppies! You'll get to see their two sweet rescue dogs below and Haley is studying to be a vet! And Austin is busy trying to make sure that they don't end up with 500 rescue dogs before she finishes! C'mon, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. :) If you need help with them, I'm sure Matthew and I would take some ... just don't tell him! :) On the day of their engagement session, we met up in Brookings, South Dakota at the Dakota Nature Park on a hot summer morning in July and it was absolutely perfect! Who knew this beautiful little park was in Brookings?! Then we hopped over to South Dakota State University, took a stroll around campus and it definitely brought back so many fun memories for me. I just fell in love with these two and their absolutely contagious smiles! I can't wait for their big day!
