Galena Engagement Session

Just before Thanksgiving, I got to shoot somewhere new — Galena! Josh and Olivia are getting married at Ashton Hill Farm Galena next year, so a Galena fall engagement session was the perfect way to celebrate their upcoming marriage!  We met for their session in Galena’s quaint downtown, which is the quintessential of small business […]

Looking at this session, you would never believe it’s November in Iowa! Usually November is cold and windy, but Ashley and Brandon’s dreamy sunset Iowa City engagement session felt like early fall! It was such a fun day! After coming out of a busy season of weddings, an engagement session was such a relaxing change […]

Shelby and Koby’s day was so fun! As with every wedding this year, they had some changes to their plan, which ended up being a lot of changes. Their original venue plan: completely overhauled. They had to switch venues very last-minute, but it worked out so well for them! Their River Center Davenport wedding was […]

Bride and Groom long veil

I’ve got yet another beautiful wedding to share with you today! We celebrated Ariana and Brandon with a very intimate ceremony consisting of their family and a few close friends. Their wedding day may not have been 100% what they planned, but an intimate wedding at Wartburg (where they first met!) was the perfect way […]

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 […]

Rainy Iowa City Engagement Session

Rain is one of those things that every bride worries about for her wedding day. It’s something we wish we could control, but we just can’t! This rainy Iowa City engagement session is 100% proof that a rainy day doesn’t have to mean disaster! On the day we’d planned for Kelsey and David’s engagement session, […]

Happy Tuesday! I can’t believe we’re already to October and I’m starting my busiest season yet (6 weddings in 5 weeks!)! Today I get to share Bobby and Nicole’s Red Barn at Pine Creek Iowa wedding with you! The last time I was with these two, it was right before everything shut down in March. […]
