Connor and McKenna kept things pretty simple for their wedding day, with everything happening within a 1-mile stretch of Coralville, Iowa. (Again, simplicity of location is very underrated on wedding days!) We started the day getting ready at the Coralville Radisson, which is also where the wedding reception was held later that evening. In between, the wedding ceremony was at the beautiful Brown Deer Golf Club a half-mile north of there. If we're honest, Connor and McKenna received about what you should expect for a mid-July Saturday—spotty clouds, some sprinkles and pretty warm with some humidity. Perhaps the biggest variable that I haven't ... READ MORE

If ever there were a time that I wanted to work topless while photographing a wedding, it was for Teddy and Alisha’s day. I can’t tell how appealing the thought of shedding clothes sounded. The poor guys in their suits! We won’t mention what the heat index was before the ceremony when we were shooting outside, because you would think I’m a jerk for doing any photos outside. And I kind of was. But that’s all in the past now, right??? And once we got acclimated out there it wasn’t THAT bad. Major props to this wedding party for just trusting us and giddying up to make the memories of Teddy and Alisha’s day more photogenic. And now memorable too ... READ MORE

Aaron and Alyssa's engagement session on the campus of UNI kept us all on our toes throughout the night! My first ever visit to UNI's campus was pretty comical, really. :) First, Aaron has a stain on one of the few visible parts of his white dress shirt. The plan was to shoot in the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center to represent their mutual passion for music, but there were students building a set on the stage there, so we were relegated to Davis Hall (I believe), which was far less inspiring . . . if we're honest! At least there were pianos in there that we could play around with . . . except the keylids were all locked! Then, a com ... READ MORE

Connor and Crissie are two of the most chill people you will meet, and it was a pleasure to document their wedding day amongst their family and friends. Crissie may not declare herself "chill" all the time, because she admitted on the wedding day that her brain was fried from the week of preparations, so I can't be 100% sure who the real Crissie is. We started their day with getting preparations in the beautiful and photogenic confines of had their wedding ceremony at All Saints Catholic Church basement. It really is a beautiful church, but with makeup and other touchups happening between an old island and a 1980s electric stovetop, which ... READ MORE

Drake and Paige scored a legitimately perfect Saturday in June for their wedding day. Drake might have told you that it could have been 10 degrees cooler, but we're still calling it perfect. They enjoyed the convenience of having both their wedding ceremony and reception at the DoubleTree in downtown Cedar Rapids, which was awesome! Having getting ready, photo ops, ceremony and reception all within a block is a beautiful thing that I highly recommend if you can make it happen. It's so convenient for your guests and for the wedding party. It's especially helpful if your wedding venue is as awesome as the DoubleTree as well. Allow me to go o ... READ MORE
