I love my family. I love my cats. And I LOVE WEDDINGS!


Receiving my BFA in Photography from the Art Institute Intl. of Minnesota, I gained experience working with various companies who have excelled my career.

But starting AWP was my greatest success!

After 6 years working in the field, I knew weddings were what brought me the most joy.

There's something special about helping couples on their happiest day. Being witness to the love that two people can hold for one another is magical, and being able to capture that love on film is more than just my job, it's my passion. Seeing my couples response as I present them with their wedding photos is my favorite source of endorphins! The idea that I can bring others joy with my photography is the greatest gift.

Since pairing up with my amazing partner, Taylor Jones, things are always moving forward.  Ally Wurts Photography has become an LLP, and we’ve now opened up business in our home state of South Dakota with a studio based in Downtown Brookings. 

Fun fact: The back

Our goal is to broaden the idea of what local is. Both Minnesota and South Dakota are home to me. I want my clients to know I am happy and willing to travel in order to capture

whatever your event or session might involve. My wish is to do beautiful photography everywhere; even if it means going over the river and through the woods!

If you’ve got an adventurous idea, I’d love to hear it.

My goal is to let my client’s personalities to shine through. I want you to feel something when you see your wedding photos; to remember that feeling when you were about to marry the person you love. That feeling as you walked down the aisle. That feeling when you see the bright future you and your loved one have ahead. 

I want you to believe that smile because it IS your real smile.

Your joy is my joy.


Thank you for letting me be a part of it.
