Empowering People and Celebrating Milestones Through Portrait Photography


BASED IN BROOKINGS, SOUTH DAKOTA. SERVING THE ENTIRE SIOUX EMPIRE REGION and beyond.


Hello, I'm Tammie.

Owner & Lead Photographer.

My philosophy might seem pretty straight forward: through my lens I capture your special moments and present them back to you in heirloom art that's celebrated for lifetimes to come. But the soul which drives that philosophy runs a little deeper than that:

I've always lived with a fascination for the timeless; nostalgia without a decade time stamp. Because real memories survive in the emotions we capture and stir themselves back up in your heart years from now, as fresh as the day you first felt them. Moments are fleeting, but the pride, the joy, and the love you feel today can be eternal. Allow me show you.

The name Choke Cherry is used in memory of my parents; they were vintners of a variety of wines, with the most popular being chokecherry. Back in the days of citizen's band radio my father went by the handle "Bootlegger" and my mother was known as "Chokecherry".
