We are still very much in the process of building things out at the studio, adding backdrops, posing furniture, etc…but I simply couldn’t wait any longer to share images with you of my new space!!! I am so very proud of this new venture and couldn’t be more excited! This studio is the perfect place for both natural light indoor sessions and traditional studio portraiture…I can’t wait to capture some great memories for you!! If you have any questions or would like some info about new session options please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org…enjoy!!!
Things have been crazy lately….a whirlwind of lease signing, painting and construction! I’ve officially opened my studio and have started taking studio sessions! I’ve had some clients ask if I will still be taking on location and outdoor sessions, and the answer is YES!! I will be offering both studio and location sessions as well as combination sessions! In the next few days I will be sharing photos of the new space but in the meantime here are some of my portrait favs from 2014…enjoy!!!
Having an engagement session is a great way to practice being photographed before your wedding! It’s also a great way for me to get to know my clients better and understand more of what they’re looking for on their big day! I was blessed with some AMAZING clients in 2014 and fun sessions all over the state! Here are some of my fav engagement images from the past year…enjoy!
I get to do a lot of cool things as part of my job, but one of the coolest experiences I’ve had was getting to photograph the inauguration ceremony and ball for Governor Branstad and Lt Governor Reynolds this year at the Iowa Events Center. As a former Political Science student (yes, that’s for real… it’s a long story) it was especially fascinating for me to see all the people whose faces had graced my television during the campaign season in real life. I even got to meet Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, who is sounding like a potential presidential candidate! I was super grateful for this opportunity and hope that this is just the beginning of a whole new area for my business. I could very much get used to having an all access press pass! Here are some of my favorite images from Iowa’s historic day…enjoy!
2014 was one of the busiest years of my career and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love my job, love my clients and love, LOVE weddings! People say all the time how surprised they are are to hear how much I love weddings (obsessed is probably the more accurate term ;) ). People assume that after a few years of photographing weddings I’d get tired of doing the same things every Saturday: white dress, family formals, kissing and crying and dancing to the Cha Cha Slide. Truth is, I just don’t get bored of it and I’m not sure that I ever will. Every wedding is different in some way and even if they weren’t, I consistently get to watch two people celebrate their love and to me there’s nothing better than that. I am so excited for 2015 and the amazing clients I’m going to get to work with! I’m excited for the venues, the tears, the laughs, the flowers, the rings and yes, even for the Cha Cha slide…because even when I think I’m over it, I’m still totally singing along! Here are some of my favs from my 2014 weddings…enjoy!
