Dan and Sara had a small, intimate wedding that came together very quickly. I mean like in a month quickly. They were waiting on the governor's proclamation of November and December to determine how many people that they could actually have attend their wedding. Even Kara and myself counted as bodies that pushed them closer to the cap of 15! They were trying to plan their ceremony at the Celebration Farm to be under 15 if need be, and then take advantage of a "loophole" for their reception at Cedar Ridge Winery where they could have a few more guests since Cedar Ridge fell under the category of a restaurant. Fortunately for all involved, the ... READ MORE

Dylan and Kori had what seemed like a totally normal New Year’s Eve wedding, though getting there was anything but normal and predictable! As you are probably aware, weddings are one of the sectors of life and business that have been most impacted by this coronavirus pandemic. To say the last year hasn’t been ideal is a pretty big understatement. Dylan and Kori were feeling it to the extreme with Iowa’s governor proclamations that prevented gatherings of more than 15 people in November and December. Fifteen people came in slightly under the 250-300 that they had originally planned on. There was about a six week period where nobody was sure wh ... READ MORE

It was a great privilege to partner with an all-star team of vendors for this styled shoot at the new HarMac wedding venue in Cedar Rapids. I love telling a story with the photos that we capture, but sometimes it is refreshing to just shoot pretty stuff. Unique Events was the driving force behind this shoot, and when they get a chance to flex their creative muscles, the results are guaranteed to be stunning. This modern and lush plum concept was the perfect balance of bold and vibrant, while still maintaining warmth. As for the venue, this was my first time inside the HarMac, and it is pretty awesome. It is a modern and industrial space wi ... READ MORE

Matt and Nicole's original wedding plans succumbed to the coronavirus, just like countless other couples that chose 2020 as the year to have their wedding. But just as many others have done, they proceeded with their wedding date and still had the best day ever, regardless of how different the day looked from their original plans. We were all spoiled with a beautiful November day that was almost perfect weather-wise, save a little breeziness. We started the day with the girls having hair and makeup done at The W Salon in Marion. We were able to get all of our detail shots done in there as well, thanks to the available natural light AND the ... READ MORE

Darin and Maren had a small, intimate wedding ceremony at Bethany Lutheran Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Though their day was small by attendance standards, it was by no means small in terms of emotion, meaning and pure joy. It’s always a treat to photograph people who are just so darn excited to get married! The day started with us arriving to shoot some quick details and Maren getting into her dress. Things quickly started to get real at that point. Once she was in her dress and adorned with jewelry, Maren’s siblings huddled up around her and prayed over her and her new marriage. It was a beautiful thing to witness and it made for some beau ... READ MORE
