Chris & Jessie

On Friday night we had the privilege to take the pictures for some friends of ours Chris & Jessie. They are a great couple and love doing things just a little bit different than everyone else and that's something every photographer just loves! We had a great time and the rains held out for us so we were able to get some really nice outdoor photographs. You can just tell how in love these two are.

We want to wish the two of you all the luck and love in the world, good luck with school this fall Jessie, we know you are a wonderful teacher. Talk to you soon!

Drew & Kristy

What a fun wedding. Drew and Kristy are a couple from Chicago that contacted Inspired Images when they decided that they were going to have their wedding in Drew's hometown of Indianola. We're really happy that we did because we had such a fun time. The wedding went wonderfully and after a small road trip we made it back to the reception at Hotel Fort Des Moines.

The ballroom was beautifully decorated and very romantic.
The party soon got heated up and as soon as "Shout" came on I think everyone in the place was on the dance floor!
We hope that Drew & Kristy have a wonderful time on their honeymoon in Florida, and want to thank them very much for having Inspired Images as their photographers.

Matt & Lisa

The morning after Molly & Danny's wedding we had Matt & Lisa's engagement shoot. It was fortunate for us that they wanted them in the same location as the reception the night before. I was glad, not only was it a beautiful spot, but I had time to scope out some areas. We scheduled it for 9:00 AM, but I think we could have started at 7 and still been hot. I felt sorry for Matt & Lisa in their jeans and I hurried along so that we could get back where it was cooler.

Matt, I hope that you have better luck this weekend at the stock car races! Thanks guys, we'll talk to you soon.

Lucky #7

07/07/07 is the most popular day of the year for weddings. I was fortunate to have a wedding back in Maquoketa for some good friends of mine Molly & Danny Miller. These two are so in love and are just so darned cute together. Tara and I couldn't stop smiling all day and were really glad to be there.
Their reception was at the newly renovated Costello's Old Mill Gallery. A very quaint and unique location it was absolutely beautiful.

Thank you both so much for everything. We hope that you had the trip of a lifetime in Alaska!

Melanie & Todd

Thankfully we started our session out in the studio since Melanie & Todd picked a HOT night for pictures! We had a great time in the studio and I had a nice time talking to them about vacation plans. (Todd you still need to tell me your secret honeymoon location!)

Once finished we moved to a few locations near the studio. Luckily it was in the shade.

Thanks guys, talk to you soon!

Ed & Erin

Outdoor weddings can be an adventure and this one proved to be just that. The night before the wedding the weather turned for the worse and with tornados in the area it made everyone just a little bit on edge about the wedding the following day. Thankfully the rain gave way to very pleasant overcast skies and the wedding was able to proceed without issue. Set in the beautiful vineyards of the Summerset Winery it was a great location for an outdoor wedding. It was a great pleasure to be able to photograph Erin & Ed on their special day and we would like to thank them for the opportunity.
