There’s just something about photographing a wedding that really gets me excited. Perhaps it’s the opportunity to photo-journalistically document a real, flowing, genuinely true celebration of love or perhaps it’s the ability to be more than just a photojournalist at these events. Taking something that’s already stunning and moving a few things around, encouraging a […]

Talk about starting out the 2019 wedding season off on a high note!! Megan and Adam’s wedding at the Temple for Performing Arts was absolutely picture perfect! Megan (a good friend mine from college) was the most radiant bride (being an esthetician helps… but even without that she’s a beauty!) and Adam an incredibly charming groom! […]

A totally perfect evening in Pella with a totally gorgeous couple and their pup! Photographing Ashley and Austin amidst Pella’s famous tulips couldn’t have been more perfect – all the while Louis (their gorgeous husky) was fairly distracted by the squirrels running about. Luckily Ashley and Austin weren’t as bothered by the squirrels. Looking forward […]

Albums – hands down, always and forever, my favorite thing to deliver to clients whether it be the visual story of a wedding day, all the must-have images from a high school senior shoot, a family session featuring the candid free-flowing images and the classic eyes-on-the-lens portraits, or all the five star images from an […]

As if two previous senior shoots wasn’t enough we decided to go for round three – only this time in Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Lake, Colorado. Oh, Rebecca is my little sister and kinda’ one of my favorite people to be around, no to mention photograph. Look at her! Totally beautiful in every […]

Okay, so my little sister is graduating from high school!! For her senior photos we did something a little out of the ordinary – shooting in New Orleans and Merida, Mexico! I mean, when on spring break why not incorporate some senior photo time?! I’ve photographed Rebecca so many times before I had to stop […]

Super fun photographing this prom group on the grounds of the Iowa State Capitol building! We had to think on our feet when our black seamless paper backdrop decided to take flight – but it turned out to be awesome using the steps and spaces around the capitol instead! You all are enthusiastic, kind, and bright people […]

The most gorgeous campus in the world (I’m bias….), perfect autumn evening bursting with colors, and (above all) a beautiful, genuine, so-in-love, really awesome engaged couple! Melissa and Zach’s engagement shoot was all that. It was really special to capture some shots of these two in the exact spot, well nearly the exact spot since the […]

Noah is one cool guy. I didn’t get just one awesome photo shoot with him – I got two! One great, casual, Downtown Des Moines meandering shoot and one at Johnston High School’s baseball field where Noah plays! So cool to incorporate seniors interests, activities, and hobbies into their shoots! All the best to you and your […]

Alexa is such a cool young lady! Loved every moment of her senior shoot! Totally gorgeous human in every possible way. Very excited to watch her kick butt this show choir season with Ankeny Centennial High School’s varsity show choir, Spectrum!
