I'd like to be your favorite Des Moines Wedding Photographer. I think I can be. I'm in love with amazing people. Are you? Are you amazing or in love with someone amazing? If so, I really hope you read the rest of this page.

I say I don't like sugar, but it seems to get passed me and into my stomach, a lot. I have been recently told I eat only sugar and I gasped, argued, sat appalled, and then realized it was completely true, oops. Besides food, I'm really in love. Really in love with everything I love. I don't "like" a lot of things. I LOVE them. Kinda like....all in...or not in. My dogs kiss me on the mouth, I can sit and talk for hours with great people, and I love my family so much that I make them just sit with me in the same room while I think about loving them. I've always thought my circle of friends needed to be wider, but one day I woke up and realized I have the very best friends in the whole wide world. They're the type that can drop away for months and pick up and be right back where we were in about 5 seconds. They're timeless and they are rocks. I value them so much and tear up thinking about them and never tell them cause it hurts me to ever think about not having them. I'm so insanely thankful for all of my people. I love them. 

My favorite thing to do is have people, great amazing people, over at the house. I love to cook for them and listen to endlessly long stories. I love it so so MUCH. I like new friends, old friends, young friends, bold friends...I just want them to be amazing. Time with people is my favorite, because time is so valuable and there is so little of it - I want to capture what it's like today on camera. I want it for every bit of my life because having those moments in photos melts me. That's what made me want to be a photographer. I wanted you to see what it's like when your partner looks at you - completely in love. I wanted you to see what you look like when you feel so full of love that you're exploding. I just want to show you what that looks like from the outside. It's so amazingly beautiful. 

Ok, so will so so rarely ask a you to look at the camera when we are shooting. It's about you two connecting, not the clarity of your pupil. I want you to stand super close to each other during photos. I like closed eyes, palms holding faces, fingers in the hair, the perfect pout before a kiss, whispers I can't hear, and full embraces where when someone sees your photos later wants their own version of that. 

I'm really an outstanding photographer, but  I can't do is home decor. If that's what you need, this isn't the place for it. You should go now.

Couples blow my mind. The love between two people is incredible to me and that is why I do what I do. It's my true love. Well, that and my three pups. ...and this really handsome guy I'm crazy about. ...shh.
