Justin & Jill {Just Married}

On the 27th of August, I headed up to Manchester for the wedding of Justin and Jill. Their day was gorgeous! We didn't take many formal portraits in the sanctuary area. Most were done outside the church or at the park just down the street. Thankfully there was a little bit of breeze since it was pretty warm out. The photos turned out beautifully.

The Alspach Family

At the end of August, I headed over to Sigourney to photograph the Alspach family. They chose a location by the lake, which made for some great photos. I think their outfit choices went perfectly with the location. The blues and greens really flowed well with the setting.

Patrick & Brittany {Newlyweds}

On August 20, I spent and amazing day with Patrick and Brittany. I started out my day at the salon with the bride and her maids as they got their hair done. Then it was off to the church. Their wedding was held in Washington at First Baptist Church. They were so much fun to work with. We did a combination of alter shots and outdoor pictures around downtown Washington. We found a little alley way, just a block over from the church, that was a perfect spot for pictures. I love the bridal party pictures there. They were a blast to work with.

This little guy is going to be an absolute heart breaker. Seriously, how adorable is he?! He was so much fun to work with. Such a smiley guy! He's an inquisitive little guy too. He wasn't too keen to sit for photos and would have rather been crawling around the studio checking things out. Thankfully, he was cooperative enough to get some adorable shots. I can't wait for his one year session!

Two of My Favorite Little Girls

I recently had the beautiful duo that is Maryann and her little sister Lilly in my studio again. They are just so adorable! They are 3 and 1, so sitting still isn't exactly something they're keen on. Thankfully they cooperated just enough for me to get some great shots of them.

Josh & Beth {Newlyweds}

On August 13th, I had the pleasure of capturing the beautiful wedding of Josh and Beth. Their ceremony and reception were both held at the Iowa Memorial Union in Iowa City. Honestly, I think it is now one of my favorite venues. There are so many amazing locations within walking distance from it. Thankfully the couple and their wonderful wedding party were up for a little walk. I love, love, love the orange parasols the bride and her maids had. What an amazing pop of color! I think the shots with those are my favorites. So much fun! Their wedding was beautiful and full of emotion. It was amazing to be a part of and capture. Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs!

Sarah {Trash The Dress}

In August, I had the pleasure of photographing a Trash the Dress session with the beautiful Sarah. It was so much fun! The session took place up around Lake McBride in Solon. We started out with some gorgeous and glamorous photos of Sarah at one of the beaches. Then we headed off to the boat dock, where she jumped off! Amazing!!! She was so willing to have fun with the session and the photos we got are stunning. Thank you to Sarah for being an amazing model!
