lacey + codie | engaged! | fargo, north dakota

So way way back yonder when we were juniors in high school, my friend Lacey (who also served as a State Officer for Future Business Leaders of America) asked if I ever shot senior photos.  Of course being me, I said of course I do! In reality I had no idea what I was doing.  Naturally, I bought out a studio in Minnesota and moved the stuff back to my hometown of Enderlin – and XamPhotography was born! I can honestly say that she and our friend Melissa pushed me into professional photography! 7 years later, I’m still shooting away!

Well now that the background is out of the way – Lacey is getting married to this great guy named Codie! We had their shoot awhile ago, but I’m real slow at posting photos! Here you go!





denise + christian | engaged! | fargo, north dakota

I first met Denise when I was in 6th grade… it was my first speech tournament and terrified… Denise (who coached a competitor) didn’t help – she scared me! But after many a year of seeing each other every Saturday at various speech tournaments and a memorable trip to a national tournament in Dallas, I’m not nearly as scared of her! 🙂 AND get this – she’s getting married! To this great guy named Christian…. So story on Christan, in 7th grade he didn’t think I was very funny when he was judging a speech tournament – in finals of ‘Speech to Entertain’ he gave me a 5 (that’s the lowest rank) BUT I ended up taking first at the tournament anyway… But he probably won’t remember that story… Why am I still typing? Here are some photos!









sami and levi

so while it may not be the first wedding of our class – its the first one i am invited to! i’ve known sami since we were pups getting into trouble, but once levi came around the cowgirl in her settled down just a little bit – not enough to stop getting into trouble… gotta love us north dakota kids!
Check out some of the kickin’ photos from our shoot!
