Cara & Ben - Modern West End Salvage Wedding

Cara and Ben sealed the deal one day short of their eight year dating anniversary. Surrounded by the crew that's been cheering them on since high school, they packed into the eclectic and beautiful West End Salvage in downtown Des Moines. This rainy day was filled with tears, a stunning bridal party, unique decor and the most down to earth couple. Cheers to the girl in study hall and one of my favorite weddings to date!

Jasmine & Curtis - Minnesota Summer Wedding

I've been looking forward to this wedding for SO long. Jasmine was a friend of mine from Bethel, but we met Curtis for the first time when we shot their engagement photos last winter. These two illuminate every space they are in. I have little words to adequately express the emotions shared on their wedding day, so I'm going to have to let the pictures talk for themselves. Jas and Curt, we are cheering for you so loudly. I can't wait to continue our friendship and watch you two change the world for Jesus.

Natalie & Cam - Minnesota Summer Wedding

It was the perfect June day to celebrate an amazing couple. One of my favorite parts of my job is watching people I grew up with fall in love and vow to forever on their wedding days. I went to high school with Natalie. She’s always been beyond selfless, full of love, laughter and a whole lot of smiles. Her wedding day was no different and it was such an honor to serve her as a bride.

Kayla & Ben - Des Moines Spring Wedding

Not even a full week of forecasted rain could stop the sun from coming out to party as we celebrated this amazing couple. I’m not sure why it came as such a shock, but we arrived at Waterworks Park for some photos and I swear the flowers put on their extra fancy outfits that morning. It was so beautiful!!! The stunning Cadillac officially put them in fairytale wedding status. I cannot say enough about the joy we had in being a part of this celebration. Kayla and Ben, thanks for being so fun to work with. Cheers to happily ever after!
