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

We spent this past weekend capturing the story of Chase and Morgan's wedding day. Family runs deep for these two, and they had special ways of weaving their families into the day, even honoring their two grandfathers that had passed. We started the day with the girls getting ready at Morgan's grandma's house. I played around on the floor for 45 minutes with some flowers and paper details getting those layflat stationery photos while Kara shot most of the hair and makeup process. After a while, we skipped over to Morgan's parents' place just down the road to check in on the guys and get a few photos of them getting ready. At that point, Morgan ... READ MORE

What was probably the most popular wedding date of 2020 was also probably the most popular day for some strangely named minute pirate bugs to come out to play. And apparently the savages are undeterred by any sort of bug spray. Bugs aside, Blaine and Abby were blessed with an absolutely perfect wedding day and I was surprised by how much beautiful fall color was already present. As has been the case for most couples this year, they didn't have exactly the wedding day that they had first envisioned because of this thing called COVID-19. You've probably heard of it. In their case though, I'm not sure that their wedding plans didn't work out eve ... READ MORE
