I am horrible at blogging, but hang with me. Lol
I had a wonderful time photographing this charming wedding yesterday! I loved all the details Ashley had done for the barn! There was even a shaved ice truck for the guests, which I am sure was a hit, as we had a 90 degree weather day in September! The staff at the venue were wonderful and so kind. The rain held off for us all day, and everything went so smoothly. It was a really lovely day and celebration for these two. I am so glad I got to be a part of it all!
As a Des Moines photographer, I had a wonderful time yesterday with Jani & Duane at Backbone park. Their wedding was like a magical fairy land! Duane was so giddy all day, just so excited to marry his best friend. We got to frolic in the woods on such a beautiful September day. Duane’s Mom officiated the ceremony, as a Des Moines photographer, I had such a hard time not crying. They wrote their own beautiful vows, had all the children throw wild flowers as they were announced man and wife. It was a lovely bonding of two souls.

We had the beauty of exploring this creek bed, finding frogs, minnows, and having muddy toes!
I meet Nicole a few years ago through my Willowsong village. She’s an amazing creative, and vibrant person. I am always honored to photograph her and her family. Did I mention she is also a photographer as well?! I loved working with her and her husband Matt this year for their family photos. I love how goofy and silly they are, and how much love you can see that radiates from them as well.
