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!
