Carlee and Luke are Celebrating One Year!

It is so hard to believe this fun and beautiful wedding was a year ago already! I met Carlee a couple of years ago, when Luke was still her boyfriend. She actually shadowed me on a some jobs to learn more about the photography business. I remember her talking about hoping her boyfriend would propose…and then shortly after, he popped the question!

Carlee and Luke are one of the sweetest and most fun couples you will meet. Don’t be fooled by her quietness…she’s a riot! They try not to take life too seriously and truly enjoy each others’ company, being silly together and living life to the fullest. From following along on their lives through through social media, I know they have been tested over this last year. Moving to another state, home ownership, job changes, none of it comes easy. But through the tough stuff they know they can always lean on each other.

Cheers to a year and many more! I hope you’ve had a wonderful anniversary Mr and Mrs Ernst!

Here’s a look back on one of the happiest days of your lives!

Happy 1/2 year anniversary Mr & Mrs Reed!

I can not believe it’s been 6 months already since Kassidy and Riley tied the knot at Olde St. Anne’s church in Long Grove, Iowa! Happy 6 month anniversary to the newlyweds!

It was an absolutely heartfelt and touching day, full of laughs, happy tears, love and of course…cake! It was an honor to celebrate with them at the start of their marriage and I know the rest of their guests and vendors felt the same way.

I’m excited to share the highlights, some of my personal favorite captures from the Reed wedding 5/5/18!

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.
