I am so flipping excited for this announcement, you guys. I. Have. A. Studio. Space. YAY!!! I'll be sharing space with some fellow creatives at Little Lights Events in the historic Hoover House in downtown West Branch.  I will finally have the ability to offer indoor portrait sessions.  Plus, this space is GORGEOUS.  It's cozy, quaint and full of classic character.  There are exposed beams, brick walls, bright and airy window light...it gives me all the heart eyes.  I've dreamed of having an Iowa City photography studio for years, and I'm so happy to find a little spot to be my creative home. You may recognize the name Little Lights.  Th ... Read the Post

This rainy day engagement session in Coralville was one of my favorites to date!  There is something about having to cozy up under an umbrella that makes for some romantic images.  We had quite the rainy fall in 2017, which kind of became a blessing for me to perfect my inclement weather shooting.  Some light misting during Cait and Reid's engagement session didn't hold them back at all.  They even were troopers for a slightly soggy off-the-trail trek to find the most perfect fallen tree.  I am so excited to capture Cait and Reid's wedding day in just a few months!  They are so relaxed together, and I love seeing couples who love to laugh as ...

Somehow it's already been 2 weeks since this rainy wedding in Western Wisconsin.  This is just a teeny sneak peek of this love filled, far from dreary, wedding day!  As a Dubuque wedding photographer, I cover weddings from Southeast Iowa (I myself live just south of Iowa City), to western Wisconsin and all the spots in between.  This wedding was outside of Prairie Du Chein, Wisconsin at a venue called Gatherings on the Ridge.  It was so beautiful!  Even in the rain, those notorious Wisconsin fall colors blazed in the background and the atmosphere in the barn was so welcoming for this family-centered event.  There will be more to come from thi ...

Today I'm throwing it back to a year ago, when I second shot with Macy Krall for this Iowa City Terry Trueblood wedding.  Wedding photographers in Iowa City often work together to assist each other when we can, and I'm so lucky to have met some great fellow professionals.  Macy runs the local Tuesdays Together chapter of The Rising Tide Society, and I'm so grateful to have met her and other creative entrepreneurs in the corridor.  But back to the wedding... Terry Trueblood is a little gem we have in Iowa City for weddings and events.  The park is just on the south edge of town, and wedding photographers in Iowa City love the options we hav ...

This Rapid Creek Cidery wedding is one for the books!  What an incredibly beautiful day.  The threat of rain showers loomed over us, but held off while we enjoyed the gorgeous landscape of the orchard.  With a ceremony scheduled for under the big oak tree behind Rapid Creek Cidery, the rain stayed in check until just minutes after the guests returned indoors for the reception.  Here is just a short snippet of the rainy Rapid Creek Cidery wedding.  Stay tuned for more to come! Venue: Rapid Creek Cidery Florals: 1-800 Flowers Flowerama Stationery: Watermark Corners, designed by the bride   ... Read the Post

Check out the sneak peek of this Downtown Iowa City wedding I photographed last weekend. What can I say about Clarissa and Mark's wedding day?  Gorgeous, genuine, relaxed, and so full of love it made my own heart burst. We started the day at Hotel Vetro with the bride and her loved ones, traipsed over to the Pentacrest and finally had the most heartfelt ceremony at Old Brick. Rarely does a day go so perfectly smoothly, but there's was smooth sailing from start to finish.  Here's just a few highlights from their day that I couldn't wait to share.   If you are looking for a wedding ...
