Kelsey + Ben | Modern Spring Wedding

Kelsey + Ben | Modern Spring Wedding

I was so excited for Kelsey and Ben’s wedding, especially after their amazing engagement this past fall. Sometimes, I have to help my couples find a connection, a point of chemistry in the moment between all of the chaos and schedules and well-wishers. That just couldn’t be further from the truth with these two. The two wed in my favorite wedding season, SPRING! Choosing to have a simple and small ceremony at...

 

Maddie + Alec | Modern Miltary Engagement

Maddie + Alec | Modern Miltary Engagement

I met Maddie and Alec for their engagement session on the sunniest, hottest Sunday afternoon imaginable for October in Iowa. I never knew when I get together with a couple for the first time what the chemistry level is gonna be and for some reason, that excites me. I really didn't need to worry with these two. They weren't very good at being serious hipster but that is totally fine with me, I'll take giggles and sunshine any day of the week. I also loved that they were willing to bring something unique...(read more)

Kate + Dan | Riverside Harley Engagement

A conservationist couple on Harley's?? If you'd told me I'd be lucky enough to meet a couple like that by the name of Dan and Kate I would find it hard to believe but one amazing engagement session later, I am sold. These two stylish and quirky souls met on a river clean-up barge and continue to work for that same non-profit river clean up now (Living Lands and Waters). A few years cleaning up rivers and one gorgeous ring later.... (read more)

Kora | New to the World

Kora | New to the World

Miss Kora was just 10 days new when I photographed her and her delighted parents. She was perfectly docile and sweet, tolerating lots of moving around and cooing. This session represents a new direction for me when it comes to non-wedding and engagement sessions. Natural, intimate, organic and at home is how I will be approaching all of my newborns from now on and I'm so pleased to say that Kora's session represents perfectly... (read more)

Maggie + Jared | Hawaiian Influenced Fall Wedding

Maggie + Jared | Hawaiian Influenced Fall Wedding

This beautifully colorful and Hawaiian influenced day full of emotional moments was one of my favorite weddings of 2016! Maggie + Jared’s wedding day had so many layers, it’s hard to pick favorites. The first and sweetest, was the heavy involvement of Maggie’s daughter, Ony as her little maid of honor, who also got a ring from Jared when he proposed to her mama. This little girl was so excited to see... (read more)
