Breanne + Ryan 7.12.14 | Embassy Club West Wedding | West Des Moines, Iowa

Breanne and Ryan’s wedding day kicked off at Breanne’s condo for the girls hair and makeup. From there we jotted off to the Beautiful Savior Church in West Des Moines. From there we took a party bus around West Des Monies ending up at Wellman’s Rooftop for a final drink before the reception. The night ended up with a gorgeously decorated reception at The Embassy Club West just a few miles away. I must say big fan of the Embassy Club West, fun and fancy. Great spot for a wedding in West Des Moines!

The July day may have ended up being a scorcher but you sure couldn’t tell it by the smiles and laughter. Breanne and Ryan had a gorgeous day and HOLY COW can their groomsmen and ushers dance…skills I tell you!

The Iowa State Fair 2014 | A day at the ISF!

iowa state fair 2014

I realized the other day it has been SO long since we posted a personal post so here you go! Really that and the fact that I have hundreds of photos from this spring and summer to edit still. Ha! Gosh we’ve just been too busy with life, work, photography jobs and our own wedding planning to edit and share the personal stuff apparently!;)

I spent my birthday at the Iowa State Fair on Monday as it is pretty much tradition. If you grew up anywhere near Des Moines (ok ok or even in Iowa) you know how great the ISF is! Nothing compares!

From the giant slide to the sky ride and so much naughty food on a stick…you are missing out if you haven’t been! If you love the fair as much as me  you will truly enjoy these. And get there as the fair is still open till Sunday August 17th! Enjoy!


Kali + Kyle 06.27.14 | Prairie Moon Winery and Vineyards Wedding | Ames, Iowa Wedding Photographers

prairie moon winery wedding

Kali and Kyle were married at the wonderful Prairie Moon Winery in Ames, Iowa. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved Prairie Moon! Winery weddings might just be my new favorite thing. So laid-back, romantic and just all around a wonderful spot for a wedding.

These two were just awesome to work with, from the first look we could tell they were just so happy in love and couldn’t wait to become husband and wife! Rain didn’t stop them from getting married outdoors in the gazebo or doing some fun photos in the vines while it sprinkled. (Hey rain is good luck on the wedding day right?!). Thanks so much for choosing us and we had a blast photographing your big day! Also Kali, your shoes…I DIED! Love love love them! (I might have a shoe addiction, but that is besides the point!);)
