Barn on the Ridge Wedding Pictures Burlington Iowa Photographers - Carter Photography
We experienced a miracle of nature this Saturday for Derrick and Chelsea's wedding at Barn on the Ridge in Burlington, Iowa. Seeing the 100% chance of rain for Friday night, for Saturday and for Saturday night, Chelsea sent me a text a couple days before the wedding saying, "Having a little freak out about the weather for Saturday!" Well, it rained on Saturday. But if you'll notice from these photos, we were blessed with a solid 8 hour window that let an outdoor ceremony happen, and all of the portraits of the day be outside. There may have been a few goosebumps (some of them mine, since Kara forgot her jacket and stole mine all day (love you ... READ MORE

We traveled down to Kansas City recently for what was maybe the nicest day of the year, weather-wise. The reason for our travels? Zach and Deepa were married at 2016 Main in downtown Kansas City's Crossroads district, and we were there to document every part of it. The 2016 Main venue is super convenient because we didn't even have to leave the space! Hair, makeup, ceremony and reception were all under one roof, which takes soooo much crazy out of a wedding day! You could tell that these two were deeply in love with one another. The day wasn't necessarily about all of the traditional pomp and circumstance, but rather an emotional and joyous c ... READ MORE

Taylor and Anna are two stand-up individuals, and it was an absolute privilege to be a part of their wedding day celebration. There is something different and special with a Christ-centered wedding day, and that is exactly where Taylor and Anna kept the focus. You could see the joy radiating from these two and all of their guests as well. Their ceremony was at oneeighty in Davenport, which is a beautiful, old church that has been updated without compromising a lot of the character that makes so many older churches special. We did a few photos before the ceremony around the church, and once Taylor caught his first glimpse of Anna, the guy coul ... READ MORE

"We interrupt football season to bring you this wedding." Derek and Jaymie had an absolutely beautiful wedding day, with joy and laughter in abundance. It was awesome. And it better have been awesome, since they asked so many of their Iowa Hawkeye friends and family to attend their wedding instead of witnessing the Iowa-Iowa State game that was kicking off right around the same time they kicked off their married life together! :) It was basically 70 degrees all day (which is too cold for Kara), with some light cloud cover. Though the initial 10-day forecast came out with rain every single day for the wedding week, that storm system moved out ... READ MORE

Will and Sarah are originally from the Cedar Rapids area, though they now make their home in Chicago. They returned "home" for their wedding celebration, and we spent the bulk of the day out at the always amazing Cedar Ridge Winery. And as usual, it didn't disappoint. We started the day getting ready at the DoubleTree, and then took a few quick photos around the downtown area for some variety in their final portfolio of images. We then traveled to the early afternoon ceremony, which was at the home church of Sarah's family—Faith Lutheran in Marion. After a long bus ride out to the winery, we strolled through the rolling hills and rows of vine ... READ MORE
