We went back to where Denton proposed. Kaitlynn’s hometown made for the perfect setting for their engagement session. I always ask my couples if they have somewhere meaningful to them for their session location. I’m more than happy to suggest beautiful locations, but sometimes a place close to the heart makes the images a whole […]

I could tell they were a little nervous before we started, but once we got going, their worries melted away. Everything felt easy after that. Going in to every session, I never know what I’m going to capture before the day. I let the personalities of my couples indicate what we do next during the […]

Everything about Katherine and Eddie’s Ashton Hill wedding day was relaxed. These two officially got married during the pandemic and have been much awaiting the day to celebrate with everyone together. Every part of this day was about enjoying time with those in attendance. Most couples choose to get ready separately in the morning, but […]

Not many people will jump on the chance to take photos at 6am, but these two didn’t even blink when I made the suggestion. As a fellow photographer, Andrea knows what it takes to get the good light! Watching the sunrise […]

I find so much inspiration from couples like Caroline and Elliott. They are genuine and don’t feel the need to make the moment “perfect.” They are content to just be. This allows us to interact so much more in-between shots. On this sun-filled evening, we walked and talked just as much as we took photos. […]

I like to use engagement session time as an opportunity to get to know my couples before their wedding day. This time gives me a chance to see how they interact naturally before external distractions of the wedding day. I’m so glad Maddie and Jason were able to make the trip to Iowa. We weren’t […]
