Megan & Jared - Married

Jared and Megan were married at Tucker Hill Vineyards in Hinton, IA. 

The first look that the couple shared was so precious and it was such an honor to be able to capture that in a photograph. 

I'd never been to Tucker Hill Vineyards before - what a stunning location!! The weather was less than ideal towards the end of the day, but we got some beautiful pictures with some gorgeous skies! And Jared and Megan were such good sports about the rain - you wouldn't even know it wasn't planned!

Laura & Andrew - Wedding

Andrew and Laura were married on May 18 at Trinity CRC in Orange City, IA. 


Photographing weddings is my passion, and couples like Andrew and Laura remind me of why I love it so much! These two were an absolute joy to work with and such a great reminder of what true love looks like. 


From the adorable first look at the place where Andrew proposed, to lying in front of the tulips, they couldn't take their eyes off each other or stop grinning from ear to ear.

The Baker Family

I just KNEW Cassie was going to have the cutest outfits planned for her girls... and I was right! This family is one of the sweetest families I know. I always love seeing Cassie and Ivy in Kindermusik with Aria. Those two remind me of each other more often than not with their blonde hair and spit fire personalities.

Brian & Shannon

Brian and Shannon were married at St. Patrick's in Sheldon, Iowa with reception following at Crossroads Pavilion Event Center. 

Brian and Shannon were clearly made for each other. Even before he started to cry during their first look, it was apparent that the love they share is something special. I absolutely love shooting weddings, and what makes it even more special is when I can tell the bride and groom genuinely cannot wait to be husband and wife. They are high school sweethearts and have been dating 5 years!

Joe & Hope

Joe & Hope had a gorgeous elegant wedding at Sunny Brook Church in Sioux City Iowa. 

When I woke up the morning of, I was freaking out..just a little. There was so much snow than I anticipated! I braved the slushy roads but the more I drove, they started clearing up and it turned out to be a beautiful day! A beautiful day for March :) Right as they were going to do their first look, it started snowing. It was perfect timing beautiful because who doesn't want a light layer of snow in their photos??

Their reception was intimate as they had  horderves and lots of games for all to get to know each other.  Enjoy!

Can somebody please just stop this cuteness. Violet is such a stinker. She loved giving me quick little smiles and then talked and talked and TALKED! Looks like she definitely found her voice.

My Lifestyle Shoot

Hey all! I am sharing some of my new 'in-home' lifestyle photos taken by my best friend  Jenny Marie Photography. She has a love for in-home shoots and  I couldn't pass up the opportunity of having her take these! She even was sweet enough to let me edit some of them myself for my blog!

Aria & Vada are what make my home complete.  Aria is my 2 and a half year old daughter who is known for her BIG personality! She is hilarious and tender hearted. Vada is a feisty little kitty that I got Aria as a Christmas gift. You know, the gift that keeps on giving. J These two are still learning how to ‘play’ together and not going to lie, some days are more exhausting than others, but I LOVE it so much!

Tyler & Allison - Wedding

Tyler and Allison were married at St. Joseph's Church in Granville, with a reception following at the Le Mars Community Center. 

The sun as shining and the blanket of snow of the ground made for a gorgeous day, but it was probably the coldest wedding I've ever photographed! It was -7 with wind chills WAY below that!! But Tyler and Allison didn't let that deter them from having a fabulous day and I was so impressed with their great attitudes, even when they were standing in the snow without coats! 

I had the pr

Trevor & Jessica - Wedding

Trevor and Jessica were married at First Reformed Church in Sioux Center on Friday, November 17, 2017. The reception followed at the Alton Golf Course.

 

With a miserably cold day on Thursday and a chance of snow on Saturday, we were so grateful for the beautiful weather we had on Friday! Trevor and Jessica had a rustic theme that was well rounded with the incorporation of shot gun shells in the flower bouquets and the bridesmaids' cowboy boots! It's so fun to see how each couple takes what they love and adds it to their wedding day.
