Jade + Jen

This wedding was a blast from the past for me.  Jenny and I played softball for Mason City High together.  She was an outstanding athlete and I only had wonderful and fun memories of my time with her.  Jen contacted me a year ago and we set up a time for engagement shots in Des Moines, Iowa.  I was so happy when she invited me to shoot their wedding.  I was able to connect with several friends I hadn't seen since moving to Des Moines.

The venue was beautiful and we really lucked out on weather.  We had a gorgeous fall day and I hadn't ever been in Plymouth Congregational Church prior.  What a stunning sanctuary.

I'm so proud of these images and so very thankful to have Jen and Jade in my life.  They are beautiful people but even more beautiful together.  <3

Second Shooting with me was Cassie Tangney of See Tang Design.  Images attributed to her are:  1.  First image, row three \ Row 12, images on left \ Image on Row 27 without my watermark

Melinda + Jennifer

Love surrounded this day.  Jennifer and Melinda were married at the Teachout Building in Des Moines, Iowa.  These two are so lucky to have each other and their families love them to pieces.  We had to dodge the sun and it was a scorching hot day but they were troopers and hauled around Des Moines and didn't mind the heat.  

I'm so lucky to be photographing couples who have been together a long time and ready to take the leap.  Here's to Marriage Equality in Iowa.  It sure does feel good to live here.

Thank you, Melinda and Jennifer for choosing me.

Cody + Mollie - March 2015

There is something special for me about shooting a wedding.  The joy the day brings, the details, the love pouring out from friends and family.  I am so honored I was given the opportunity to witness Cody and Mollie's day.  Photos below without watermark courtesy of SeeTang Design  (Cassie Tangney).
