Mike and Kim were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous mid-August wedding day. Apparently Kim brought the Canadian weather with her after she left her homeland to marry this hot guy from Pennsylvania. Their paths converged as they were both athletes at the University of Iowa, and thus their love story began. We started the day getting ready at the Coralville Marriott, which was also the host site for their wedding reception later in the evening. They had an early afternoon ceremony at Parkview Church in Iowa City, which basically sits right across the river from the Marriott. Afterward we came back to the beautiful grounds of the Marriott to c ... READ MORE

I was a big fan of Paige and Lexy's wedding day. You could tell they put a lot of effort into concepting the day, and they went out of their way to make sure their guests had a fun and memorable experience. From their carefully crafted signature drink (two varieties of Old Fashioned), to a homemade popcorn bar, to Lexy and some of his buddies firing up some Ian's Pizza to share with the guests at the end of the night (all the way from his home shop in Madison), it's safe to say that their day was far better put together than this sentence. They had an early ceremony at St Ludmila Catholic Church. From there, the hub of their wedding day was t ... READ MORE

Justin and Amanda were blessed with a beautiful July wedding day. Justin and his groomsmen were the hairiest group of men I've ever seen, and I'm guessing they were thankful for the reasonable temperatures. Beards for days! Naturally, Justin's is the best and most manly. The guys were paired with some lovely ladies (and one man without facial hair) in "mint" colored bridesmaids dresses that I was totally digging. (The man was not in dress.) They had an early Catholic ceremony at St. Ludmila Catholic Church in Cedar Rapids and as soon as the ceremony was over, they started the reception . . . on the party bus. After we did some wedding party p ... READ MORE

We paid our first visit to Barnes Place outside of Des Moines in Adel, Iowa for Devin and Stephanie's wedding. Whoa! This is a gorgeous property with every detail really well thought-out. It really was a playground of sorts for us. The ceremony space is among the most beautiful that we have ever shot in. Nestled in the midst of a grove of trees, it had such an intimate, almost indoor feeling. The owners—Paula and Ernie—must go shopping constantly, because we were in awe of how many unique, vintage pieces they had throughout the property. What's better is that you can use them to give your wedding your own unique statement. Devin and Stephanie ... READ MORE

We had the most amazing evening for Ryan and Lindsay's engagement session. It wasn't without the threat of rain, or even a few raindrops to start, of course. Lindsay had a very specific vision of an open field with abundant sunshine for the photos. Fortunately we were able to make good on that vision with a cool, yet still abundantly sunny day. We shot this whole session in roughly a 50 yard box, so that'll challenge your ability to deliver a variety of images! READ MORE
