The incredibly talented Pentatonix performed last evening at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center with opening performance by Girl Named Tom. A fully seated audience is rare at this venue but the energy from the seats was amazing and so was the energy up on stage. ... See MoreSee Less

Awesome pictures! It was a great kick off for Christmas. Thank you for sharing great shots.

Such an amazing show. And great pictures go match!

We took kids to hear the Christmas music and the Show was GREAT but after sitting for 2 hours before the main event started because of the ridiculously long intermission it got so late that we had to leave before it was over. Talked to others that were also leaving early (there was a steady stream) and they expressed the same disappointment.

Always amazed with your photographs!! Absolutely stunning!!!!!

Fantastic pictures! Concert was awesome!!

Wonderful pictures and the concert was great too!

Awesome pictures!

My sister is engaged! My whole family spent a few days in Deadwood over Thanksgiving and I got to take some engagement photos for her. We passed on a couple wonderfully sunny days and ended up getting to do them on the best weather day of the week. Congratulations Courtney and Nick - it means the world to me that I got to take these for you. ... See MoreSee Less

Holiday sessions in the studio. Caitlin and her crew are so much fun to work with and I have gotten the honor of being their family photographer for years now. For all of you parents out there - children generally give us 20 to 30 minutes of time and attention for photos. Those minutes aren’t always easy minutes. There isn’t anything you can do different as a parent except to breathe, relax, and endure! All of you are doing a remarkable job with your children and I continue to enjoy every session with them! ... See MoreSee Less

Same area. That ice block usually forms right in front of that waterfall.

Happy Thanksgiving Michael Woolheater ☺️

Spearfish is my favorite place on earth!❤️

Beautiful scenery.

Wow!

Nice hike down and back for that shot too!

For every photo I take I look for opportunities to add an artistic spin and show something different and unique. For that reason, I have never really been interested in doing real estate photography. Real estate photography generally requires strict adherence to a set of rules so that photos are more straightforward and images are precise. Matt with Pride Built Homes showed up in my DMs looking for photos of some of their recent homes with a request for them to NOT look like the usual home photos that are produced. With the homebuilder turning over creative freedom for the shoot, I couldn't wait. I am happy with my first real estate photography shoot and would do more as long as the same rules applied - there are no rules. ... See MoreSee Less

I’d love to do real estate photos. I’ve seen some pretty crappy photos out there (being a renter and soon to be buyer)

Michael Woolheater Photography These are beautiful, unique, and so refreshing compared to the every day real estate images, bravo!

I love this so much more than the traditional stuff. You captured amazing focal points, and so much uniqueness. 🔥🔥🔥

I wanna see MORE::😍:: I keep clicking excited to see the next.... Can't get enough!

Rules are meant to be broken! 🤪. These pictures are great!

Good job!!!!😍 Love your creativity!!!!

Literally speechless. The curved arches in this home are everything 😍😍😍 ahhhh

One, this house is gorgeous. Two, your view of it is much more telling and indicative of the space than traditional photos, in my opinion. Well done! ☺️

This home is gorgeous 😍 you did a great job!

Gorgeous house and photos!

These are stunning!

David Rieger this house is gorgeous!!

Beautiful!!

Amazing!!

So cool!!! 😎

Love it

Love it!! It’s from the perspective that most people want to see

He may go to medical school for neuro or he may go to medical school for psych. He may go to law school. He may do all of that and I believe he can and will.

You could not be more precious than you are in these moments. Thank you so much to the Smit family for letting me sneak in this extended family session before the nice weather leaves us. We took a stroll through my favorite nature park and got the whole family, individuals, guys, girls, grandparents with grandchildren, and all of the combinations. ... See MoreSee Less
