We spent this weekend documenting the wedding of Scott and Laura at one of our favorites, Barn on the Ridge in Burlington, Iowa. The weather was . . . ehhhhh . . . sketchy, to start anyway. It rained pretty hard for the first 2-3 hours that we were there, but fortunately, about an hour before we were planning to take photos, the rains had moved through, and the temperatures were able to climb to a degree that was a little more comfortable. The sun didn't really show itself much, but I was okay with that, because we had the full array of the Barn on the Ridge property at our shooting disposal in 360 degrees.

The next feature in the 2018 cousin series is Logan with his bride-to-be Victoria. They drove all the way up from St Louis for their engagement session with me. We stomped around the downtown Cedar Rapids wind tunnels for a while, and then changed it up by going out into the country for the latter part of their session. The soft, setting sun treated us reeeal nice out there! READ MORE

We stayed close to home for Joelle and Tyler's engagement session, shooting basically everything here in Marion, which I have never done before. It's always nice to shoot in new environments for the challenge and for the diversity in results. I think Joelle and Tyler's personalities really shine through in these photos, and I love that they weren't afraid to just be themselves. READ MORE

Tim and Megan had a unique vision for their wedding day, and you could really see their personality shine through in the details. They worked closely with Emily at Soirée Wedding and Event Planning to make their vision come beautifully to life. Their ceremony was at at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Iowa City, but we started the day getting ready and shooting details at the location of their reception. The wedding reception was at Rapid Creek Cidery, and it was a place that left us blown away! Rapid Creek Cidery is a new venue and restaurant, just outside of Iowa City. It is a development of Wilson's Apple Orchard, and it is going to do well. ... READ MORE

Chris and Aunna had their April wedding ceremony and reception out at the beautiful Bella Sala in Tiffin, Iowa. Though the weather didn't necessarily feel like April, it was such a warm and meaningful day as these two families joined together to celebrate Chris and Aunna. I loved all of the tears that were present throughout the day. To me, tears indicate love, and it was clear that there was so much love surrounding these two on their wedding day. There is something to be said for having both the ceremony and the reception in one space, and Bella Sala was a really nice fit for their wedding with its abundant space for both. We did a few p ...
