Carter & Adria {Fun at the Beach}

Last weekend, I met up with the ever-adorable duo that is Carter and his baby sister, Adria.  I swear these two grow by leaps and bounds each time I see them!  It's always so much fun to see how they've grown and changed.

We met for their portrait session at Lake McBride beach.  It was truly a gorgeous backdrop for this little pair, their outfits went so beautifully with the setting.  I think my favorite pictures are the ones on the boat dock.  The colors are so vibrant and the kiddos had great faces.  Love them!

Liz & Jeremiah {Parents to Be}

At the end of August, Liz and Jeremiah were once again in my studio.  The last time they had been in was January of 2010 for their engagement session.  I photographed their September 2010 wedding, and hadn't had the opportunity to see them since.  I was thrilled when I received an email from Liz saying they are expecting their first little one in September.

Brandon & Cassie {Wedding}

On August 17th, I spent my day with Brandon and Cassie as they got married.  Their ceremony was held at Brown Deer Golf Course in Coralville.  It was a busy location that day with a golf event going on, but we were still able to have our formal session there.   Their first look was on the deck area just outside of their ceremony location.  It was beautiful and emotional.  I love the moment when a bride and groom see each other for the first time.

Tim & Jessica {Engaged}

On August 13th, I met up with Tim and Jessica at the Iowa City Public Library to begin their engagement session.  Neither are from the are originally but work has brought them to Coralville.  They hadn't spent much time at all in the downtown Iowa City area, so they got a fun tour during photos...well, kind of.  Many of my session in the downtown/Ped Mall area involve a lot of alleyways behind building and most of them are not the cleanest.  But they do make for stunning backdrops.  There is such a variety amongst the walls and many fun stairs to shoot on.  An alleyway I especially love is only about three feet wide and is beside "Which Wich."  In the late afternoon, the sun floods in across the back of the alleyway and makes for some truly stunning light.  Love it!

Adrian & Liz {Wedding}

On August 11, I met up at Hotel Vetro with Liz as she finished getting ready for her wedding.  Once she was in her dress, she had a special reveal for all of the women in her family as they had not seen the dress to that point.  It was a beautiful moment.

Nick & Julie {Wedding}

On August 4th, I headed down to Bloomfield, Iowa for the wedding of Nick and Julie.  The ceremony was held at Nick's family's farm, a simply gorgeous backdrop for both pictures and the ceremony.  After Julie finished getting ready, we began formal pictures with her, her family, and her bridesmaids.  In the pasture next to the ceremony area stood a large tree that made for an amazing location for pictures.  After we finished with the girls we hid Julie away so Nick couldn't see her until the ceremony, then guys came out for their pictures.
