Amy’s sister first reached out to me last fall – and one line in particular really stuck out to me: “I’m hoping to find someone who can beautifully capture their spirit”. That isn’t always an easy thing to do, but I think because they love so fully and openly, it was impossible *not* to capture the spirit they naturally radiate.
Bailey & Elliott’s wedding day was one for the books. They were both so down to earth and caring. It felt like I was spending the day with friends instead of “clients.” The Proposal The proposal story is one of my favorite things to share for wedding blogs. And Bailey & Elliott have the most […]
Ali & Blake’s wedding at the World Food Prize Hall in Des Moines, was absolutely gorgeous! The way Ali’s mother looked at her while she walked her down the staircase was enough to make anyone tear up.
A little over a week ago I flew out to Baltimore to photograph Holly and Ian’s wedding in Joppa, Maryland. It was an absolutely GORGEOUS day! Ian’s grandfather officiated the outdoor ceremony on the same property of St. Mary’s Assumption. Holly & Ian met their senior year at the University of South Carolina. The first […]
Mike & Amela’s wedding at Sunnyside Golf & Country Club was everything (and then some!): A sweet story of love & re-connection, the joining of two families, traditional Bosnian wedding elements, and an amazing time with their friends and family. Mike & Amela, Thank you SO much for trusting me to document your special […]
I absolutely love being a wedding photographer. One thing I love the most? Meeting couples for their engagement sessions. It gives us all the chance to get to know each other and get comfortable with being photographed before their big day! These two will be married in less than two months! Mike & Amy were […]
I’m so excited to share Kaylee & Bill’s Main Street engagement session with you all! It was a wintery (but beautiful!) one! Kaylee & Bill drove down from Minnesota for their snowy session on Main Street in Cedar Falls and I could not be more excited to share their photos with you! I had such an […]
A few months ago I was contacted by Dan about photographing his surprise wintery proposal session with his girlfriend, Jessica. I was ECSTATIC. And also a little nervous (because February + Iowa, haha). The morning of the session did not look promising – rain, sleet, and an incoming storm right around the time we were […]
By now it’s probably no secret – I just like sparkly things. Wedding and engagement rings are some of my favorite details to photograph on a wedding day (and I always try to set aside time to do them justice!). Something about these precious metals and their gemstones – I don’t know what it is! […]
Have you heard those stories about couples who meet and then life sends them elsewhere. But then years later, they find each other again? Amela & Mike are proof of one of those stories. They dated for 3 years, went in different directions and then found each other years later. What a beautiful couple, inside […]
