A couple weeks ago, I had the privilege of documenting Jordon and Jill's intimate wedding at the Usher's Ferry Historic Village in Cedar Rapids. Their day was not like your typical wedding with all sorts of pomp and circumstance—they had no official wedding party, there were only 15-20 people in attendance for the ceremony, and it was on a Thursday. Before and after, we took advantage of the beautiful day to get some photos with the couple, their dogs and their unofficial wedding party. :) READ MORE

Trent and Jaimie had an absolutely beautiful Iowa fall day to enjoy for their wedding. It was picture perfect. So hopefully the pictures are perfect. I'm fairly confident they are, because I have two things in my notes from meeting with Jaimie—she is obsessed with willow trees, and she was obsessed with her mashed potato bar (with good reason). The mashed potato bar turned out amazing, and we spent the majority of our portrait time in the midst of several willow trees that provided a really nice backdrop for the photos. Trent and Jaimie's wedding ceremony and reception were both at the beautiful Brown Deer Golf Club in Coralville. We spent th ... READ MORE

Derek took time off from the busy harvest season to marry his bride Amy as temperatures approached record highs for the day. All weather grumbling aside, I know that all who were involved in the wedding had an amazing time celebrating these two. Koozies were created for the wedding with what I see as being an appropriate motto for the celebration—booze, food and bad dance moves. Haha! We started the day in the couples' hometown of Fairbank, Iowa getting ready at Visions Salon. The ceremony was at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, also in Fairbank. After the ceremony, we stopped at Derek's family farm for a couple photos, and then visited ... READ MORE

We visited Kansas City this week for Tim and Kelsea's wedding at the Kemper Museum of Art. This was our first rodeo at the Kemper, and it did not disappoint. The asymmetrical architecture, clean lines and modern artwork were a lovely backdrop for both the wedding ceremony and the reception! We started the day getting ready at the InterContinental on the Plaza, where everyone's favorite hair/makeup artist Mandy McKenna was assisting the ladies with their beauty. After a first look at the InterContinental, we joined the rest of Kansas City's wedding parties (probably 7-8 of them) at the Nelson Art Museum for the majority of the wedding party ph ... READ MORE

Nick and Kristen had their wedding about a month prior to getting in touch with us. They wanted another shot at some wedding photos, and particularly wanted to take advantage of the beautiful campus that Iowa State offers, as they both went to school there. Since graduating from Iowa State myself, I have never been back to shoot on campus, so I was really excited for their session! Not only that, I usually only have something like 45 minutes with couples on a wedding day, so to have an extended amount of time with a "bride and groom" was wonderful. Nick and Kristen, thanks for giving us all an excuse to get back to our alma mater. I hope you ... READ MORE
