At the end of September, I had the pleasure of traveling to Dubuque for the wedding of Brandon and Emily. It was a beautiful, warm fall day. My assistant, Greg, and I arrived shortly after lunch to begin photographing Emily as she got ready for her big day.
Her lace dress, was simply stunning, as were her accessories. The handmade garter was gorgeous. After we photographed the details, Emily put on her gown and got ready for her first look. Before heading down to the Riverwalk to see Brandon, she peeked down at him from the window of her room. You could see the love and excitement in her face.
On the Riverwalk, Brandon and Emily shared their first look. I love first looks, such an incredibly special moment for couples.
We headed to the downtown packing district for some more bridal party portraits. I adore downtown Dubuque, so many beautiful location in just a few block stretch. It was wonderful having the opportunity to photograph there.
Once we returned to the Grand Harbor Hotel, we began the family
portrait portion of the day. The area behind the hotel was beautiful
and had such wonderful natural lighting. Loved it!
Check back later for the rest of Brandon and Emily's beautiful wedding!
