It's nice that Halloween is now the unofficial start of winter, right? We spent the first part of winter last weekend in southeast Iowa for Scott and Kayla's early November wedding. The ceremony was at St Mary's Catholic Church is West Point, Iowa, and that is where Scott and Kayla finished getting ready. There was crying that happened before any first looks, so you knew the emotion was going to be rich throughout the day. After getting dressed, Kayla was able to get some tears out of both her dad and Scott during their first looks before the ceremony. As I mentioned, it was not the warmest day of the year on their wedding day, but we still d ... READ MORE

This fall has been nuts weather-wise, and I feel like it has been cooler than usual. We've had a few nice days sprinkled in here and there, but generally it's been pretty cold, and now we're even looking at some October snow?! Aaron and Evelyn's wedding was at Bella Sala in Tiffin, Iowa, and they were planning an outdoor ceremony to take advantage of the venue's picturesque waterfall and landscaping. But, they were dealt one of the fall's colder than usual days and eventually decided against getting married outside (it was the right choice, guys). On the bright side, it was also supposed to rain all over their wedding day, but fortunately the ... READ MORE

Matt and Mattie had a stunning wedding day that Mattie declared was, "Perfect in every way." Admittedly, the day did not start out perfectly, but these guys brushed off the unfortunate early morning stress with such grace that it made their parents proud. It was a beautiful thing to see and experience. Matt and Mattie are a stand-up couple, and behind these two are stand-up parents that love their kids deeply. It has been such a privilege getting to know these families and their hearts. It truly made the day a privilege for us to be a part of. We photographed Mattie's sister's wedding last April, so it was a nice reunion of sorts. The day sta ... READ MORE

Keep your shit together. That was the sentiment stitched on a hanky that was gifted to Ashley by one of her bridesmaids. Neither Ashley, nor anyone else, kept their shit together for this day. Ashley consistently set up situations throughout the day that inspired ugly cries. She was aiming for ugly crying and scolded her dad for not completely losing it when she gifted him a sentimental hanky of his own. I should have known what was coming because she even cried the first time we got together to talk about their wedding day and if we would be a fit for each other! I mean, I'm not complaining over here, because if you follow our blog at all, y ... READ MORE

Tyler and Heather are two Hawkeye-ish fans (with other Big 10 allegiances), and they chose to get married at the Iowa Memorial Union on a Hawkeye game day. So that probably made for a super crazy day, right? Nah, we hardly noticed. But the craziness their wedding party brought certainly had things turned up a notch! It was all good though, and I think everyone had a great time celebrating these two. And we were happy to endure their craziness that was all in good fun. I actually love a wedding party that will banter with me, because I know they are more comfortable and there will be more personality in the photos. The day started at Adeva Sa ... READ MORE
