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 ...

As many of you know, I was expecting our second baby to arrive this summer and he was born August 1st!  As you can see from the photos below, big sis Genevieve is proud as can be of "her baby."  She is being such a good sister and helper, so I can sigh a little sigh of relief with that one.  I had someone else handle the newborn portraits for me, but I've been dreaming of this pose since I found out I was pregnant.  Somehow the gods were on my side and I was able to get some perfect ones that I will treasure forever.  I included a few goofy outtakes as well, because let's be honest, those are a bit more true to life around here.  Being an Iow ...

What's so important about heirloom albums? We live in a digital world.  We benefit from that SO MUCH, and sharing images is one of those benefits.  I love the flexibility that comes with digital photography and applying it as a wedding photographer in Cedar Rapids.  I love being able to share our memories on Facebook and Instagram, keeping in touch with family and friends.  I love being able to have multiple backups of my images for safekeeping.  But our generation is facing a major problem.  We live in a digital world. Remember flipping through family albums?  Seeing recent photos of yourself on the walls of your family home?  Not panick ... Read the Post
