Located just south of Kearney, Harlan County Nebraska includes the seven communities of Alma, Republican City, Orleans, Stamford, Ragan, Huntley, and a snippet of Oxford. Each community has its own distinct personality and offerings that make them ideal for a visit and even a destination getaway.
Alma is the gateway to the Harlan County Reservoir, a favorite destination location for thousands every year.
The county seat for Harlan County, Alma proper is home to about 1,200 people who can’t wait to meet you. Alma’s attractions feature a number of great restaurants (including Dragonfly Desserts Coffee Shop & Bakery), Methodist Cove, three hotels, a wonderful golf course, trails and more.

It’s greatest feature is the Army Corp of Engineers remarkable dam that spans (and creates) the beautiful reservoir so many enjoy. The town features two wonderful marinas, countless cabins and camping spots, as well as the Harlan County Playhouse.

The original county seat of Harlan County, Orleans is home to our wonderful county fair and Applefest. Best festivals are crowd pleasures and good ones you won’t want to miss!
The village of Stamford is by far not the smallest in Harlan County. Established in 1887, Stamford was laid out when the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroads were extended to that point.
Stamford is known for its lush pasturelands, rolling hills, and breathtaking farms — great for sunrise and sunset photographs.
Oxford is home two counties in Nebraska, both Harlan and Furnace Counties. Some of its favorite attractions are the Oxford Meat Locker, the Cardinal Country Club Golf Course and Oxford Museum. The drive from Orleans to Oxford is beautiful and great for an afternoon (or sunset) cruise.

Welcome! I am Brooke Langley, Artist of Langley Photography. Based but not limited to Harlan County Nebraska. I have been capturing Memories since 2019.
During that time, I have captured Weddings, Newborns, Milestones , Fur babies, livestock, Anniversaries, Engagements, senior, Professional headshots, Boudoir sessions. If you have an idea that isn’t listed shoot me a message!
I have been a photographer since my days on my high school newspaper & yearbook in the early ’90s. I embrace natural light and encourage candid moments, as opposed to a scripted session. My favorite things are photographing tiny people discovering their big, new world; but even more, I love capturing families in their natural elements: laughing, being silly, and just loving each other. Those are the memories we all want on our walls and in our albums, right?
