You always challenge me to be my best and you back me with infinite confidence. I love lifting each other up as we pursue our dreams together. When […]

It all started a little awkward. One of Kelsey’s friends set her up on a blind date with a guy named Tommy. The day of the date arrived and Kelsey still had no idea what Tommy even looked like! When he arrived, it was dark outside, so she still couldn’t get a clear picture of […]

Happy Monday, Friend! Today I’m sharing a little peek at our Christmas with you! I know, I know, we’re halfway through January and I’m talking about Christmas! Yikes!

In 2019 the one goal I stuck with the most was consistently reading the Bible chronologically all year! I just finished and it was amazing. Never have […]

I’m in love with how romantic Danielle and Kenny’s engagement session was at Morgan Creek Park in Cedar Rapids! I’ve been looking forward to these photos even before I knew I’d be the one taking them! You see, Danielle is Joey’s (my hubby) cousin. I’ve been anticipating seeing their engagement photos ever since they got […]

I love, love, love working with couples and haven’t had the chance to photograph many anniversary sessions yet. It was a no-brainer for me! Erin and Matt’s […]

One of my favorite parts about my job is sharing my couples’ sweet love stories! Before I start showing you all of Ariana and Brandon’s dreamy Iowa sunset engagement session, I first have to tell you a little bit about their sweet story! They met during a high school leadership camp in Ariana’s hometown. Nothing […]

I’ve got the sweetest engagement session to share with you today! Every time I think about how blessed I am to meet and photograph such lovely couples, I do a little happy dance! Jenny and Jake are definitely one of those couples! Their Palisades fall color Iowa engagement session was so exciting to capture because […]

As the winds pick up yet again here in Eastern Iowa, I have another beautiful wedding to share with you! Cole and Carli’s Burgundy Eastern Iowa Fall Wedding has been well worth the wait. I’ve been waiting for their wedding for TWO years now! That sounds like such a long time.  But, it feels like […]
