The winner will be drawn on Friday!

2. Make sure to leave a valid email so that I can notify you if you win!

I will be using to pick the winner.

Megan&Robb | Dubuque Area Wedding Photography

This is the wedding of Megan and Robb.

Two of the NICEST people I have ever met!

The wedding was held at the St. Francis Xavier Basilica in Dyersville  - which is a beautiful beautiful church!

Enjoy all the pretty pictures and leave some love for the newlyweds – they get back from their honeymoon tomorrow!!


Katie & Bryce | Eastern Iowa Engagement Photography

Katie and Bryce are getting married

-in TEN days-

 I don’t think I’ve ever shot an engagement session this close to a wedding before.

The thing is – Katie wanted a session in the SNOW.

But she was living near Des Moines.   And Bryce was living near Waterloo.  And I live near Dubuque.

And we barely had any snow this year.

So – scheduling a snow session wsa pretty close to impossible with the distance between us all.

Then – all of a sudden – it’s May. And the engagement pictures haven’t been taken.

And the wedding is


I think this all happened for a reason though.  Katie and Bryce’s session turned out great.

The weather was perfect. Upper 70′s, only 20% humidity, and no wind.  The location was beautiful.

And then of course you have Katie and Bryce who are so VISIBLY in love.

I hope you all enjoy looking at these phots as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Oh and be sure to push play and listen to Katie and Bryce’s first dance song while you look at the photos!:)

(I think you might have to actually have Spotify on your computer…..)
