The snuggliest Bulldogs, ever, a surprise photobomb, and a Pretty Woman moment on the staircase. Katie and Brad officially have my heart! Aside from being an Iowa wedding and engagement photographer, I’m also an avid dog lover. When Katie told me she wanted to include her pups in their engagement photos, I about jumped […]
A sweet couple, so in love & the most gorgeous florals we’ve ever seen!
“-20 day, but a perfect day. Love was everywhere and everyone was all smiles. We felt so loved and blessed. From the cute flower girls, you couldn’t take your eyes off to the parents glowing for their kids entering marriage… it literally was a NYE we will never forget. We could not ask for better […]
What a year! 2017 was full of memorable moments and the sweetest couples! To those who brought me on as their photographer – I cannot thank you all enough for inviting me into your lives and into your wedding day stories. I am so honored that you’ve entrusted me with preserving you and your family’s […]
Twenty+ weddings, two new nieces, two trips home, two kids now in school. It feels like so much has happened this year! I’m SO grateful to friends and family that have pushed me to try and be my best self, as well as my clients […]

Should Your Bridesmaid Dresses Have Sleeves? ‘The modern bride has so many options for her gown and bridal party that it is hard to choose. When the subject of the bridesmaid gowns comes up, the decision is often based on more than just fashion. Some brides are happy to let the bridesmaid make her […]
This was probably my most anticipated wedding this year – mainly because it felt like it had been a long time coming! Justi & Sam originally booked their date with me in the fall of 2015 (officially my ‘furthest out’ wedding couple)! We met for their engagement photos in the fall of 2016 – and […]
Ten years ago, this mama & papa bear were married in this very spot! The PIPAC building no longer serves as one of Cedar Valley’s most coveted indoor/outdoor venues (sadface, it really was a stunning venue!), but we were thankfully allowed to let them reminisce as we photographed their sweet little family there in June.
Before we dive head first into this post, I think it’s incredibly import to note something: almost everything you see in these photos was handmade. A lot of it was crafted by Emily, including her gorgeous, Victorian-age inspired bridal dress (WHICH HAD POCKETS, btw). I can’t get over it… That is all. Now let’s sit […]
