Amanda & Matt | Wedding Preview

If you've been following this blog long enough, you've probably seen Amanda & Matt's engagement pictures and you might know that Amanda & I graduated high school together. I've known her since 5th grade and it was an honor to be a part of her wedding.
Amanda & Matt are amazing together. Plus they had the most adorable ring bearer & flower girl. A lot more lovely pictures to come soon...

Anna & Danny | Wedding Preview

Two blog posts in two days! Where are these coming from? As it turns out, I haven't been home much this month so this week I'm focusing on getting caught up. I have two wedding previews to show you (starting with this one), I believe you're still waiting on more pictures of Sarah & Kevin, and I also have another senior session I'm working on.

I'm going to start by saying I'm ridiculously thankful for the gorgeous weather my couples and I are always given on their wedding days. *knocks on wood* - I don't want to jinx it or anything, but God is incredible in always providing the perfect amount of sun and clouds.
...Now on to the amazing Anna & Danny. Their wedding was beautiful, but I already knew it would be. Anna's very much into photography as well, so the first time I met her we talked for a couple hours or so just about how great this job is. I believe she also tricked me into letting her take a picture of me. I guess it was a fair trade, because I got the opportunity to take a ton of pictures of her and her handsome new husband, Danny. Here's just a few, as always more later.

Emily | Senior Pictures

Emily just started her senior year at my old high school. We had a fantastic day shooting her pictures, including a quick trip to get some frozen yogurt at Orange Leaf ( If you haven't tried it yet, you should!
Emily, you were awesome to work with and are quite lovely! Hope you have a fantastic senior year!

I'm back!

I'm back from NYC and ready to get back into the swing of things starting with a senior photo shoot today and a wedding this Saturday!
Five tid-bits from New York:
1. Taxis are much easier to hail than anticipated.
2. I might be married to Elmo.
3. You should probably buy an umbrella when someone is shoving it in your face for $2.
4. Tiffany's is marvelous and if you haven't been to the one on 5th Avenue, you simply must visit it some day in your life. (I highly recommend bringing some breakfast.)
5. Harry Potter (aka: Daniel Radcliffe) can sing!

And now for some pictures...

New York City where I'll be on Sunday, August 7th. My mother, sisters, and I are all on a mission to visit a college for my youngest sister, Sheena (if you follow this blog often, you may have heard of her.)

This means I will be away for a week and may not be able to respond to e-mails and the like as quickly as usual. I will return to Iowa soon enough, however, and will respond to inquiries and questions as soon as possible.

Now I'll leave you with a fun camera phone picture of my sisters and I on a picnic adventure.
