Dalton and Jill had a beautiful August day for their wedding, which was seemingly much deserved after they endured . . . 2020. Need we say anything more? Oh, but we can. A global pandemic rescheduled their original date. A derecho that hit the area around their wedding venue extremely hard three weeks prior. They had hair stylist and makeup artist issues too. One broke their back. One moved across the country. Their officiant caught on fire and suffered some pretty nasty burns. As I said, praise God for the miracle that we were somehow healthy and available to photograph their wedding day! Wow! They had both their ceremony and the receptio ... READ MORE

What a last couple weeks it has been! What year it has been! As if dealing with a global pandemic wasn't enough, the week of Maxwell and Dana's wedding, a storm unlike anything we've seen wrecked central and eastern Iowa. A derecho, which I learned how to correctly pronounce this week. It was bad. Fortunately Maxwell and Dana's wedding was at the Coralville Marriott, that was more toward the southern side of the storm and only lightly affected by the devastating winds that hit five days before. These two took everything in stride, and they were an absolute pleasure to serve and work alongside. Two of the nicest and most genuine people you wil ... READ MORE

I've told the story over and over this year. Isaac and Alyssa's story is not unlike most that we've been a part of in 2020. They were planning the wedding of their dreams at a beautiful venue, surrounded by a host friends and family. But then COVID... They simplified things quite a bit for their wedding day, choosing to basically have only immediate family present and with that, scaling back their wedding party quite a bit this go-round. They plan on a post-COVID 2021 reception celebration. Despite having to scale things way back for this year, I got the impression that there were no regrets going forward with their small, intimate wedding th ... READ MORE

Jacob and Amber's wedding day didn't follow your standard timeline, and that was just fine for us! We were up at 4:30 A.M. (which is the earliest I've been up in YEARS) to make the trip over to Des Moines and begin shooting getting ready details at 8:00. Their ceremony followed immediately after at 10:00 A.M. It was nice because it was up into the mid 90s later in the day, and the heat index was well over 100, which prompted the heat advisory that was in place. We were done shooting a little after noon, and while that was still hot, we could have easily added another 10-15 degrees by shooting later in the day in full bake mode. Their cerem ... READ MORE
