Cory and Sarah's wedding was at the Celebration Farm in Iowa City, on what was a lovely June day. Temperatures did not climb above 80 degrees, AND there was basically no wind to blow the girls' hair around! Speaking of hair, we started the day off making the girls beautiful with hair and makeup at Thompson & Co in downtown Iowa City. It just so happened to be the weekend of the Iowa City block party, so basically all of downtown was shut down, and parking was a debacle! We all made it though, and the girls were indeed beautiful. After navigating that nonsense, we headed out to the farm to finish preparations, all leading up to Cory's firs ... READ MORE

Before there was all of this rain, there was the heat and humidity that made the rain possible. And in the heat and humidity was precisely when Joe and Allison's wedding day took place. With a laid back wedding party, and several refreshment breaks in between, we made the most of the day and captured some beautiful photos. We even delayed some of the photos until later in the day, which worked great with the more tolerable temperatures and the softly lit, hazy sunset. The ceremony was at the well air conditioned St Mary's Church in Dodgeville. And the wedding reception and the bulk of the wedding day activities happened at the also well air c ... READ MORE

Will and Sarah graciously invited me up to Chicago to photograph their engagement session last month. They are originally from Cedar Rapids, but sought job opportunities in the Windy City. Being that Chicago is a big part of their story as a couple, they wanted to capture that in the photos, since their wedding is going to be back in east Iowa. They squired me about the north side of downtown, and I tried to give them a set of images that were definitively "Chicago". So hopefully that really comes through in the photos! We couldn't have chosen much worse of a weekend in May to shoot weather-wise, but these guys patiently let me try some diffe ... READ MORE

Robb and Molly are two of the easiest going people you'll meet, and they are wonderfully hospitable. They were so genuinely appreciative of everyone that came to celebrate with them during their wedding day, taking time to make sure that they could greet and thank each person in attendance. I mean, Robb even thanked us for being there before we had even given the camera its first click! Their wedding ceremony was outside in the beautiful Greene Square park, right in the midst of downtown Cedar Rapids. As had been the typical weather forecast for us lately, all week, and even Saturday morning, we saw a 90% chance of rain, with an 80% chance ri ... READ MORE

Ben and Mattie are wonderful couple and I have really enjoyed the couple times we've gotten together thus far. These two smartypants took time away from their busy studies to wander around Coralville for their engagement session last month. A mostly overcast day opened up with some peeks of sunlight at the end, and it made for a pretty nice sunset. We had 80s music on blast the whole time—All Out 80s, baby!   READ MORE
