Liz + Brad: Married!

I loved the set up of Liz and Brad's wedding. They got married at 11am, had a beautiful reception at Prairie Moon Winery outside of Ames that lasted until about 4pm (and contained a great surprise first dance), then invited everyone out for their after party that night.
Liz looked stunning in her Mother's wedding dress, Brad made a handsome groom of course, and there were many friends and family who love and support them as they began this journey of their lives together. I knew this would be a great wedding from the day I met with Liz and Brad, I definitely wasn't disappointed...


Brad & Liz: Thank you both for choosing me...and inviting me to the after party! Good luck in Phoenix!

Graduation and a Wedding

Today was a busy day. First, I watched Shateau graduate from Simpson College and then I headed over to Boone for the wedding of one of my very favorite customers at Family Video.

Shateau graduated high school with me and has always been there to listen to my ridiculous stories and attempt to try and talk sense into me. She is amazing, extremely intelligent, always has the most insane things happen to her, and is kind of a work-a-holic. I pretty much love her. Congratulations Shateau and good luck!07
Stacy gets movies a lot and I love her for it! One of the best things about my other job is meeting all kinds of wonderful people. Stacy is one of these people and I was thrilled to be invited to her wedding. Congratulations to the newly married Stacy and Bill!

Vineyard wedding party
Liz, you are stunning!
I just have to add...that last photo was my first jumping group shot. As in, this was the first shot I took of a group 2nd & 3rd try just don't compare. I was pretty pleased that I nailed it on the first shot.

Lastly, I'd like to thank Liz and Brad for choosing me as their photographer! You two are pretty fabulous & I wish you the best in life.

Jacque + Brian: Engaged!

I think I do this backwards. I think I'm supposed to just let you have a picture or two in the sneak peek and tell the story in the full blog post. Well, you know the story so here are some more pictures of my bestie and her fiance! (Or if you haven't been properly stalking my blog and don't know who this adorable couple is, go here.)
If you're wondering, we took all these pictures at Ledges State Park. It is gorgeous there and we were lucky enough to have the most perfect overcast day!

They both have the prettiest eyes...I'm jealous.. :-)
