Samuel & Ella

Some very good friends of ours came over to have some family pictures taken this weekend, and we were able to get some really cute pictures of their children! Samuel & Ella had a great time playing with their wooden blocks. I thought they were so cute in their "grown-up" clothes. Samuel's jacket and Ella's sweater were their parents' as children, so it made the pictures even more special. Here are a few shots from the day. Thanks again guys, we'll talk to you soon!

Jon & Eliza's Engagement

We knew there was a chance that it would be cold when we scheduled the engagement pictures for today but we didn't think there would be snow on the ground and a very cool breeze to deal with as well! Jon & Eliza were troopers though and we were able to go out for a little while, and managed to get some great pictures! Here are a few from our cold shortened session.Thanks again for toughing it out guys! We'll talk to you soon!

Following my indoor session with Michelle I took her good friend Nicole's pictures as well. I had a really fun time with Nicole since we were able to go outside and do a few before it started to get rainy. We drove all over Michelle's parent's acreage and we found some great spots & I think Nicole even had a good time too! Thanks Nicole, here are a few of the pictures that I have finished so far.

Michelle's 2nd session

I took Michelle's outdoor session a while ago, but since we were home for the wedding on Saturday I was able to take her indoor pictures. I set up my makeshift studio in her parent's home, and it worked out great! Michelle is a multi-sport star at her high school so of course we had to get some shots with all of her gear! Thanks again Michelle, hopefully we'll see you all again soon!

Todd & Rhonda's wedding

We had another wonderful wedding on Saturday, and with it being our second to last wedding of the year we feel so fortunate to have shared the day with so many wonderful couples. Todd & Rhonda were no exception. They are a couple of the most down to earth fun people to be around. The wedding was really beautiful, and took place in the gorgeous Lutheran Church in Dewitt Iowa.
The party got started following the wedding and what a party it was. Todd & Rhonda were greeted by a very large crowd and it seemed that everyone there was in the dancing mood!

I couldn't help but take a bunch of pictures of the adorable kids that were there as well!

If I don't see you guys before you leave on your honeymoon, I hope that you have a wonderful time! Thanks again, we'll talk to you soon.

What a weekend!

Well Tara and I had another crazy weekend where we had to travel back home to Eastern Iowa for a wedding on Saturday and a few sessions on Sunday as well. We had a great time at all of them, and were fortunate to have safe travels back home again on Sunday night. I will have a few pictures to follow as I get them finished.

Matt & Becky

I had another fun engagement shoot tonight and amazingly enough some more perfect weather! Matt & Becky were really great and we had a lot of fun walking around the park kicking through the freshly fallen leaves. The colors are still really great on the oak trees and we took advatage of the beautiful backdrop. Here are a few pictures from their shoot. Thanks guys, I'll talk to you soon. I hope you have fun at The Bee Movie tomorrow!
