Ashton Hill Farm fall wedding ceremony

This October has been very busy around here! Due to some changes with dates, I’m scheduled to have a wedding every weekend this month! This fall neutrals Ashton Hill Farm wedding was so special to photograph! Thomas and Melissa (and many of their friends and family!) traveled from out-of-state to come back to Iowa where […]

Hello, happy Thursday! I’m breaking up the wedding posts today with an engagement session! Erica and Austin’s glowing sunset field engagement session is near and dear to my heart. Why? Because Austin is Joey’s brother (aka my brother-in-law)! We’ve been waiting and waiting to schedule this session because Austin’s in the military and time off […]

This was not their original plan. Jordan and Canaan had planned to get married in August, at a totally different venue. But, when COVID changed their plans, they postponed their original wedding date and quickly searched for a plan B. I think their new plan — a wedding at The HarMac in downtown Cedar Rapids […]

Iowa Fall Backyard Wedding

Tears filled his eyes as he wrapped his arms around his daughter. He brought the microphone to his lips and talked of his love for her. Then Kelsey’s dad turned his eyes to her mom. Their eyes — filled with tears — met and acknowledged their intimate family bond. Halfway through the daddy/daughter dance, Kelsey’s […]

As you plan your wedding, you may be asking yourself what’s the big deal with doing a first look? It’s tempting to want to be “traditional” about your wedding day and not break the age-old rule of not seeing the bride before the ceremony. I however, think there is more to be gained on your […]

I can’t believe I finally get to share my second wedding of 2020! It’s been a long year with not a lot of weddings due to the pandemic. But, exactly one year after first talking to Jenny on the phone, I got to capture her and Jake’s intimate Bella Sala wedding in Tiffin, Iowa! The […]
