MY FAVORITE THINGS
the purple-obsessed girl with a passion for love stories and marriage. Fresh out of college, I set aside fonts and magazine page layouts (and my fancy graphic design degree) for photographing the joy and love stories of couples as they begin their marriages. Now I’m a wedding photographer for classy couples who want to preserve their legacy timelessly!
When you book me as your photographer, you get more than a gallery of images, you get me. I’m your bonus bridesmaid who happens to be taking your photos along the way. I want to get to know you, your hubby-to-be, your love story — all of it! When you’re in front of my camera, I want you to be confident and comfortable. I believe that’s only possible when we truly get to know each other!
You came here to know a little bit about me, and now we’re really getting there! I married my almost high school sweetheart, Joey, while we were still in college. A few years later we welcomed our sweet little Evelyn into the family while I was just starting my business and Joey was settling into his career. Not long after that we surprisingly welcomed our second baby, Rowan, into our little family! When I’m not hanging out with awesome couples on their wedding days, you can find me on our Eastern Iowa acreage raising our kiddos, probably watching an episode of Friends, and finding ways to simplify and enjoy each day to its fullest.
That’s why I believe in being more than your photographer, I want to be your friend!
If it comes in purple, you bet I'm buying it in purple! My obsession has even led to professors labeling me the "purple girl" in college.
THE COLOR PURPLE
I have a slight addiction to EVERYTHING Jojo does! If I make even the smallest stop at Target, I'm definitely browsing the Hearth & Hand section!
EVERYTHING JOANNA GAINES
My love for mint chocolate chip ice cream stems wayy back into my childhood! Halo Top is my favorite (all the goodness, less of the guilt!)
MINT ICE CREAM
I love a good edit/makeover/home flip! Seeing potential in something and making it beautiful fills me with so much joy!
Nothing feels better than an article of clothing I know will go with absolutely everything I love to wear!
I love these three to pieces! Keep scrolling to meet them a bit!
With less than two years between him and his sister, he likes to copy her, but his real love is COOKING! He's ornery as can be with a heart of pure love!
Our first little love! She's Frozen-movie-obsessed and silly as can be! If I ask her to take a picture, I can almost guarantee a cheesy grin!
We got married when we were only 20 and it's been an incredible adventure together! Our favorite nights include a night in watching Friends or the Office :)
Wedding days are gone in the blink of an eye. Marriages however, last a LOT longer! After overcoming a challenging first year of marriage (and many challenging seasons after that!), I have a heart for seeing marriages last. Marriage isn’t easy, but so worth it. That’s why I love photographing engagements, weddings and anniversaries! I believe in celebrating seasons of joy, overcoming seasons of sadness and all the milestones in between!
