The IMU Bridal Event

I would like to take a moment to thank all the brides and grooms who came out to the IMU Bridal Event hosted by Weddings In Iowa this past Sunday.  I talked to so many beautiful brides who sounded so excited as they worked on planning their big day.  I know I've said it before many times, but it is SO true: I love my job!

Jim & Sheila {Newlyweds}

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of capturing wedding portraits for Jim and Sheila.  Jim and Sheila said their "I do's" during a small ceremony on the sunny beaches of Mexico at the end of January.  When they returned to Iowa, they held a reception at the gorgeous Coralville Marriott to celebrate with their friends and family.

Zephyr Weddings {Vendor Spotlight}

 If you haven't already checked out Zephyr Weddings' newly remodeled studio on the Coralville Strip you should!  Their studio is filled with amazing examples of wedding invitations, place cards, and any paper product you could dream of for your wedding.  There are also a ton of excellent wedding vendor displays for you to take a look at: photographers, DJ services, videographer, florists, wedding coordinators, and much more.  If you are planning a wedding, this is one stop you'll be so happy you made.  The Zephyr staff is amazing and will help all of your wedding dreams come true!

The Henke Cousins

 Last weekend, this adorable quartet of cousins came into the studio.  I have been photographing the two older cousins for three years now.  It is so fun to see how much they've grown each time they come back into the studio.  They are so sweet.  I loved getting to meet their new cousins as well.  I am truly honored to be invited into the lives of families and chronicle their lives.  It is one of my favorite parts of my job.  I can't wait to see how much they've grown by the next time they come into the studio.

Ryan & Kayla {Engaged}

Ryan and Kayla were so much fun to photograph during their recent engagement session.  We started our session at a new location I've been dying to try, the University of Iowa Levitt Center.  Seriously, this location is gorgeous; so much natural light and beautiful architectural details.  Love it.  The best thing is, since it's a very white location, the beauty of it doesn't distract for the subject of the photograph.  Ryan and Kayla had so many great interactions and were naturals in front of the camera.  It made my job so easy and fun.

Alexis {Newborn}

Recently, Julie and Brian were in the studio for their maternity session.  I always tell mommies-to-be to be sure to schedule your maternity portraits when you are around 37 weeks, because after that point baby may decide to make their debut at any time.  We were very fortunate to have scheduled Julie's session when we did.  Just a few days later, Alexis decided it was time to make her grand entrance.
