High school sweethearts Kelli and Tanner tied the knot on Saturday at their Iowa country wedding. Last fall we took Kelli and Tanners engagement photos and they were so much fun! (Check out their engagement session Here.)  As an Iowa wedding photographer, I have been anticipating their wedding all year and it did not disappoint! […]

I had been looking forward to Amanda & Tyler’s wedding ever since their engagement session. Just to paint a picture for those who do not know them, they are hilarious and you are going to laugh and their witty banter and remarks and of course, all the faces Tyler will make.  As a wedding photographer, […]

Holly and Frank are one of the neatest couples I have ever met! They have a super chill-cool vibe about them, and they enjoyed an intimate wedding with their closest friends and family.  They got married at the Third Reformed Church in Pella, a beautiful church indeed!!! I wish these two the best marriage full of happiness, love and plenty of #moodmusic!

The day had finally arrived and it couldn’t have been any better!

On arrival the guys were already dressed and ready to go! So we did some detail shots and got their photos taken. After all the portraits were taken, we were about 2 hours ahead of schedule so there was plenty of time to relax and cool off from the humid Iowa air! We also got some more bride and groom portraits which are my favorite and Chrissy and James are pros at getting their photo taken now! The thing I love most is the real love and emotion they share, it’s so sweet and I am so happy for them!

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the Ivory + Bliss workshop at Ashton Hill in Cedar Rapids! It was such a beautiful location and there were so many wonderful things we went over! I will make a separate blog talking about my experience!

This was hands down one of my favorite weddings with two of my favorite people!! This weekend my cousin Beau married Lexi! They are the nicest easy going people, you are always going to have a good time with them! I had a blast doing their engagement photos and when I got the message from Lexi saying they moved their wedding date up I screamed and freaked out like a little girl!  This intimate wedding had them surrounded by the ones they love the most, it was everything a wedding should be.
