Wedding Photography Iowa | Lindsay + Andrew | Waterloo wedding

Even though the weather wasn’t quite what a bride dreams of for her ideal wedding day, we made the most of it and it turned out to be a pretty great day! Before the first look, the couple read letters that they had written to each other beforehand, which made for a special touch to the day. The red, white and silver decorations really transformed the space and were an amazing 9-month project done by family. The draping at the reception had strings of gorgeous, hand-done beading that must’ve taken forever. Truly a labor of love! Probably my two favorite occasions of the day were the groom singing “God gave me you” to his bride during the ceremony and the “Evolution of Dance” performed by the couple for their first dance. The dance was based on the famous youtube version found here. Overall, it was a great day of love and fun memories that a little rain couldn’t deter.

Cedar Falls Wedding Photographer | Kristi + Kevin | Waterloo, IA

This is the epic post from Kristi and Kevin’s beautiful wedding at St. Edward Catholic Church in Waterloo, IA. The ladies started the day at Sharper Image Beauty Salon on University Ave. and then proceeded to the Ramada Inn hotel to finish getting ready. After the wedding, we snapped some fun, relaxed images and then headed to Black’s Sky Room in Waterloo where the lovely reception began. After the dance got going, the guys pulled out a cool surprise, which involved all the groomsmen + the groom + both of the dad’s doing a dance routine to “I want it that way” by the Backstreet Boys. It was a very entertaining rendition, I have to say. You can only imagine how great it was from the photos, but you almost had to be there to get the full experience. This is a long enough post, so I’ll let the images tell the rest of the story.

Senior Pictures | Cedar Falls & Waterloo, IA | Adam 2014

Adam is a senior at Waterloo West High School who has been swimming since he was 6 months old. I’ve known him since he was a little guy, running around at Ascension Lutheran Church, which we are both a part of. According to his mom, they threw him in the pool at 6 months (with a floatation device of some sort) and gave him the opportunity to start swimmin’! I love it. Adam swims competitively as well as on the Waterloo West High School swim team. Having competition in his nature, he took on a triathlon two summers ago and this fall, decided to run cross country at West for the first time. He’s a talented athlete, but also a great guy. His future plans are to pursue paramedics and see what doors open from there. I wish him the best for his senior year and the exciting adventures to come! I have a feeling there are some cool things God has planned for his future…

*Note: The last image is his Eagle Scout project which is a really cool prayer garden outside our church that he and his brother, Josh teamed up on.
