I had a wonderful morning with the Bottorff family on Saturday. I am simply in love with the pictures from their session. They had an amazing orange chair they brought out to the front of their house for the photos. It was too perfect, capturing their beautiful family with their home in the background. Plus, how adorable are those kiddos?! Love 'em!

As you know if you read my blog, I love trash the dress sessions. I think they are gorgeous. Who wouldn't want a chance to wear their beautiful gown again? My May 28th bride, Lauren, felt the same way. So we headed to the Ped Mall for an amazing session. The alley ways of the Ped Mall are such a perfect contrast to her dress. At the end of our session we stopped by Hotel Vetro's lobby. I love the picture of her on the black couch with the painting in the background. Love it!!
Seriously, how adorable is this little girl?! She wasn't too interested in getting her photos taken, but did a great job. It took some work to get her to smile, but it was totally worth it. Her little smile lights up a room.

On June 11th, I captured the amazing beauty that was Jon and Amy's wedding. Their ceremony was at the First Mennonite Church in Iowa City. We started our portrait session with their first look in the sanctuary, a few alter shots, then headed outside to the beautiful little park just across the street.

I once again had the pleasure of having the wonderful Smith family in my studio. Their little kiddos are so adorable! They were so fun and playful. I have to say, the black and white picture of their sweet little girls snuggled with her puppy toy just melts my heart. How sweet!

This past Sunday, I spent the afternoon with Tyler for his senior portrait session. Unfortunately it was about 90 degrees outside plus humidity and the sun was blinding. Thankfully, Tyler was a total trooper and survived the outdoor portion of his session. We kept to the shade, but it was still very hot. I think we got some great photos despite the non-cooperative June weather.
On May 28th, I had the pleasure of capturing the wedding of Jason and Lauren. Their day was so beautiful and so much fun. Their ceremony was held at the gorgeous St. Mary's in Riverside. I love that church. So many beautiful nooks and crannies. It is always a joy to photograph weddings there. After the ceremony, we headed to Iowa City for some more photos at Kinnick and the Old Capital. I adore their dip photo in front of the Old Capital!
Their reception was at the Holiday Inn in Coralville and was very upbeat. I don't know if I've ever seen quite so many people out on the dance floor at once! The atmosphere was wonderful. Congratulations to Jason and Lauren! Thank you so much for allowing me to share in and capture your amazing day!!
After their engagement session, I'm really looking forward to the August wedding of Patrick and Brittany. They were so much fun to photograph and were good sports to put up with the heat and humidity. I think the photos turned out great. It's hard for me to pick a favorite!
