Jason & Amber

I'm not sure what happened to the warm fall that we were having but that went away this week and yesterdays wedding with Jason and Amber was COLD! They didn't let the weather affect their beautiful day though, and had a great wedding. The ceremony took place at St. Francis of Assisi Church in West Des Moines, and the reception followed at the Celebration Barn in Cumming. We had a great time taking pictures of them with their friends and families. The pictures all turned out really nice, here are a few from their special day.

Thanks again guys for allowing us to photograph your special day. For more pictures head over to Kelly's blog. I hope that you have a great time in Mexico and I can't wait to hear about it.

Tim & Mary's wedding

On Saturday we got the chance to take the wedding pictures for Tim & Mary. It was an absolutely gorgeous November day for a wedding, the temps were mild and there was barely any wind at all. The wedding was held at the St. Mary church in Elkhart, and the reception followed at the Holiday Inn in Des Moines. Following the lovely ceremony we followed the limo to a random farmer's field and got some cool shots in the newly picked corn field. With not a lot of time in between the ceremony and reception we had to head for Des Moines. Luckily we left when we did cause the limo ended up making more than one head scratching turns along the way. The reception was very nice, with toasts coming from their families as well as everyone in their bridal party. Here are a few shots from the day.

To see a few more shots head over to Kelly's blog. Thanks again guys, I hope you have a blast in Mexico and I can't wait to hear all about it. Talk to you soon.

Eric & Jodi

On Thursday night I was lucky enough to take the pictures for Eric (Murph) & Jodi. We had a great time walking around and talking a little bit. These two are just great together, with all their goofing around and having fun it was easy to see that they are in love. We headed to a park to take advantage of the fall color that was really beautiful especially since the weather had cooperated. I posed them several times and with a great amount of sarcasm Murph would say oh yeah, we do this all the time, which would make Jodi laugh. It didn't take much to make her laugh though, and the easiest thing to do was just to say, okay this one is going to be a serious shot....there was no chance of that! Here are a few from their shoot.
And a couple of see what I mean? This one is supposed to be "serious"...

And some random dude jogging through our shot.

Make sure to check out Eric during sports on the channel 5 news here in Des Moines. Thanks again guys, we'll talk to you soon!
