Despres Photography bio picture
  • A note from the artists

    Having your portraits taken should be an enjoyable, fun and relaxed experience. Its much more than just getting dressed up and cheesing at the crazy photo nerds behind the camera. Its an opportunity to show that you are proud of who you are and the person you've become. Our hearts won't beat forever, but in that instant when a beautiful portrait is created you have the chance to showcase yourself to the world. It's your moment to let everyone know that you existed and that you were beautiful and unique. Your portrait is a statement that tells the world exactly who you are, without saying anything at all.

    We are two photo nerds who met while sharing the same passion for photography. (Alika took Adams picture- it was love at first sight). We spent our first few years of business in Sioux Falls, SD before making the decision to move to Southern Minnesota to pursue our photography dreams.

    Thank you in advance for the chance to collaborate with you and create unforgettable memories. We are going to have so much fun!

Nick Cook – 2015 Senior

This was an especially fun session. Nick and I went a little over the 2 hour mark our session advertises. Lets just say we had a couple inside jokes going by the end of our 3 hour portrait trek. Laughs and creativity were flowing. We had perfect overcast so maybe I got a little carried away. It was totally worth it, his parents were thrilled when they saw the genuine smiles we captured. – Adam Despres

Hello Deer <3 Alika Faythe- Photos by Adam Despres

So… I have a Deer obsession, literally I have a folder on Pinterest called “Deer Inspiration” and I will buy ANYTHING with a deer on it. I have always dreamed of having my photos taken with a deer- but I rarely ever plan a photo session for myself.

Well the stars all alined today and someone had a connection for me to make my dreams come true. With a small window of opportunity to do the shoot- I couldn’t say no.

I can finally check off of my “Bucket List” photo session with a deer.

I have to give a huge thanks to Adam Despres for capturing these images for me last minute. You knew this was a dream of mine. I appreciate your time and talent!
