Alyssa + Joey | Manchester, Iowa Wedding

Alyssa and Joey's wedding last month was just so wonderful, I had a great day hanging out with this couple and their guests. I LOVED the unique wedding colors and all of the decor. The church they were married in was definitely one of the most beautiful churches I've ever been in (trust me, I've been in A LOT of them, and this one was gorgeous with great lighting)--it made for fantastic images, indoors and out. It was heartwarming to see all of the family who came for the big day and I think this couple wins an award for the most family photos taken EVER (I'm not complaining though, they were a lot of fun and made my job totally easy.)

The day ended with a beautiful, laid-back reception in a pavilion at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. I left just before the sun set and was able to stay at a nearby hotel with my family. We really enjoyed getting to explore the area a little bit and look forward to being able to go back.

Congratulations again to Alyssa and Joey! I hope you are enjoying married life with that adorable little boy of yours!

Alesha + Nick | Janesville, Iowa Wedding

I am so stoked to finally be done with Alesha and Nick's wedding gallery! I really enjoyed working on these images, everything was so beautiful and it was hard to choose what I wanted to include in this blog post. I had plenty of time for detail shots before we started formal pictures (I just LOVE the details)...and let's be honest, the entire wedding party looked fabulous, so my job was pretty easy!

It was a fairly warm (and by that I mean very hot) day but it was sunny and gorgeous, so I really can't complain. We took wedding party portraits at the University of Northern Iowa campus, stopped at The Brass Tap in Cedar Falls, and finished the day at the Janesville Riviera Roose Events Center. The venue was new to me and was the perfect little place for a wedding. The gazebo and patio out back were perfect for pictures at sunset.

Alesha and Nick have been great to work with and I want to give them another big congratulations on their marriage!
