Taylor and Anna are two stand-up individuals, and it was an absolute privilege to be a part of their wedding day celebration. There is something different and special with a Christ-centered wedding day, and that is exactly where Taylor and Anna kept the focus. You could see the joy radiating from these two and all of their guests as well. Their ceremony was at oneeighty in Davenport, which is a beautiful, old church that has been updated without compromising a lot of the character that makes so many older churches special. We did a few photos before the ceremony around the church, and once Taylor caught his first glimpse of Anna, the guy coul ... READ MORE

"We interrupt football season to bring you this wedding." Derek and Jaymie had an absolutely beautiful wedding day, with joy and laughter in abundance. It was awesome. And it better have been awesome, since they asked so many of their Iowa Hawkeye friends and family to attend their wedding instead of witnessing the Iowa-Iowa State game that was kicking off right around the same time they kicked off their married life together! :) It was basically 70 degrees all day (which is too cold for Kara), with some light cloud cover. Though the initial 10-day forecast came out with rain every single day for the wedding week, that storm system moved out ... READ MORE

Will and Sarah are originally from the Cedar Rapids area, though they now make their home in Chicago. They returned "home" for their wedding celebration, and we spent the bulk of the day out at the always amazing Cedar Ridge Winery. And as usual, it didn't disappoint. We started the day getting ready at the DoubleTree, and then took a few quick photos around the downtown area for some variety in their final portfolio of images. We then traveled to the early afternoon ceremony, which was at the home church of Sarah's family—Faith Lutheran in Marion. After a long bus ride out to the winery, we strolled through the rolling hills and rows of vine ... READ MORE

Patrick and Caitlin enjoyed a beautiful August wedding day, and I'd like to think that everything went flawlessly, other than Caitlin losing her phone. I didn't ever hear if that was resolved, but hopefully it turned up somewhere!? We started the day with getting ready at Caitlin's folks' place, and then made our way to the University of Iowa campus for the couple's first look and wedding party photos. We explored several different areas of Iowa City throughout the day, but  They had their wedding ceremony on a family farm, just outside of town, and it worked out beautifully. The weather was pleasant, the property looked wonderful and Patrick ... READ MORE

Anthony and Jackie enjoyed a wonderful wedding day at Prairie Moon Winery in Ames, Iowa. They had both their wedding ceremony and reception at the winery, with the ceremony taking place outside after a few showers "watered the property" earlier in the day. Fortunately, the rain didn't really inconvenience us at all, other than maybe supplementing the humidity that day (ask Anthony's jacket about that)! It stayed pretty cloudy for most of the day, which was nice in this case, because it afforded us to shoot at all angles in the vineyard. But it did end up clearing off toward the evening, and we were able to get a spectacular sky for the sunset ... READ MORE
