Waterloo Wedding Photography | Sunnyside Country Club

This wedding presented a jam-packed day complete with a trip downtown during the main street sidewalk sales, a classy trolley escort, tasty donut towers and a couple bean bag toss games setup at the reception.  Caitlin and Jordan were an easy-going couple with some great ideas for their special day. Jordan is a software developer at QCI, so he masterminded a way to project guests photos at the reception through a program called “tweet beam”. It was a lot of fun for all the guests to tweet their photos from the day with the designated hash tag and see their images flash on the big screen. Another cool idea was having colored glow sticks for the guests to enjoy during the dance. The bright glowing colors scattered on the dance floor made capturing the dance a fun and unique experience. I wish them all the best in their new journey as a married couple and new chapter in Des Moines!

Wedding Photographer | Snowden House | Waterloo, IA

I had the privilege of capturing this small, intimate wedding at the Snowden House in Waterloo, Iowa. I love the character and beauty of this historic setting. I was connected to the couple through a mutual acquaintance and enjoyed spending the afternoon sharing in their wedding celebration. Hunter was the director for the Cedar Valley Music Festival and they both share a passion for music, so it was fun to listen to the music they had as part of their ceremony. I had to take a photo of the music scores because they were pretty incredible and difficult. People didn’t want to leave after the ceremony because the piano duet was that good! To Hunter & Kirsten: Blessings on your continued musical pursuits in Texas and the new life you now share as a married couple!

Wedding Photography | Cedar Falls, Iowa | Outdoor Wedding

This was a beautiful outdoor wedding at Whiterock Conservancy of Coon Rapids, IA. I definitely needed a GPS and printed map to find this gorgeous setting in rural Iowa toward the southwest part of the state. The rain started pouring down as I made my way Saturday morning, but I was happy to pass into a wave of sunshine that blessed the entire wedding day.

Their families live in different places, so Justin and Amber decided to land on a neutral site where they could enjoy the great outdoors–a fitting setting for the laid-back couple. They found me online and it was a privilege to jump into their lives and be a part of their special wedding day. They live in Salt Lake City, Utah and their love for adventure and the outdoors made me feel like we could be friends. I loved all the time and attention to awesome decorations, a unity fire, evening entertainment of a couple hawks, dessert of pie and culvers ice cream and a night ending in a classy barn dance. Blessings on your new adventure as a married couple!

A special shout-out to my assistant for the day, my lovely sister Michaela, who captured a couple of these images.
