Happy First Wedding Anniversary Mr & Mrs Fenton

I have such a love for elopements that I never knew I had before! Over the last couple of years I’ve had the pleasure of joining couples with their closest family members and friends in an intimate, private ceremony, to capture the moments of them committing to a life together. What could be more special than that?!

The Fenton’s tied the knot a year ago in the comfort of their own home here in Clinton, Iowa. I am so excited to wish them a very happy anniversary, and many more ahead! Here are just a few of my favorite shots from their special day.

Happy Half Year Kate and Jason!

When I first met with Kate I knew immediately that I wanted to be there to photograph her wedding. So I crossed my fingers extra tight hoping she felt the same way! She was down-to-earth, kind, intelligent, and completely in love with her best friend. I could see it in her eyes how excited she was and how positively sure she was that she wanted to marry Jason. This is what I love about being a wedding photographer. It's the people who are so genuinely excited for their wedding to come, not for the party, but for the actual marriage that follows. Kate and Jason chose a time of year they loved at a little place they loved with the people they loved most in the world, and of course, each other. One of the most memorable details of the day was Kate's wedding dress. She combined her mother's wedding dress with her grandmother's dress to create her very own. It turned out absolutely perfect! The whole day was intimate, beautiful, sentimental and the start of a very long and happy marriage.
