Todd & Melanie

Todd & Melanie Peterson.
What a fun day we had yesterday at the wedding of Todd & Melanie Peterson. The wedding & ceremony took place at the Scottish Rite Consistory in downtown Des Moines, and was absolutely beautiful. After a week where every day it rained most of the day, Melanie & Todd couldn't have asked for a better day for late August, it was gorgeous. Melanie, Todd and their whole wedding party were some of the most fun people that we had ever photographed. They were up for anything, and it was great! By the time we finished the formals it was getting a little close to the ceremony to try to get some outdoor shots, but we made up for that later when we all went to a park near the Consistory and had a lot of fun.
The fun didn't stop there, man did these guys love to dance!
We want to thank you guys for the opportunity to photograph your wedding, we had such a great time. I hope that you have a wonderful time in Tahiti and I can't wait to hear all about it. Talk to you soon!

We're back

Hesitantly we boarded the plane for the long flight home. We were sad to leave such a wonderfully beautiful place but also happy that we were able to experience it. It was an amazing trip and one that we will not soon forget. From start to finish it was magical. We are going to have so many great memories from driving a manual transmission car on the “wrong” side of the road, waking up before dawn to watch the yellow eyed penguins leave their nest and venture into the ocean while the sun rose behind them, Stewart Island with it’s laid back attitude and wonderful people, viewing the literally thousands of waterfalls on our drive into Milford Sound, walking on New Zealand’s 2nd largest glacier, and our sea kayaking trip with our guide Eric who taught us so much about the native Maori people.
We wished that we could have stayed a few more weeks, but we’re glad to be home as well. There are more things that we would have liked to have done, but as we say on every trip these things give us a reason to go back one day and I do believe that we will go back.
I have an extreme amount of work to get finished but I will publish some photographs from the trip as soon as I can.

We're going to New Zealand!!

This is just a quick note to let everyone know that we are going to be gone on vacation for the next couple of weeks & the next time that I will be able to check my email will probably be on August 20th. Don't worry, we'll probably do nothing but think of the business while we are gone :) Hopefully we'll have some beautiful landscape portraits for sale in the near future, check back soon!
