Three Ways I Elevate My Client Experience as an Iowa Photographer


I am a destination wedding + elopement photographer based in the Midwest but open to traveling anywhere your love story might take me! Thanks for being here on my little corner of the internet, stick around a while!



If you’re currently elbows deep into engagement and wedding planning, as an Iowa photographer, I’m here to ensure that capturing your love story is an exciting and stress-free part of the adventure. I believe that your engagement and wedding photos should not only be beautiful, but the experience of creating them should be just as amazing. That’s exactly why I go the extra mile to make sure my clients feel informed, relaxed, and most importantly, have a blast during the process.

If you choose me as your Iowa or destination wedding photographer, here are three ways I elevate your experience!

Complimentary Engagement Session

I strongly recommend that you have an engagement session ahead of your wedding day. Engagement sessions are not just about capturing stunning photos. They’re an opportunity for us to connect and for you to get comfortable in front of the camera.

That’s why I offer complimentary engagement sessions in two of my wedding packages, with the option to add one to the other packages. This flexibility ensures that every couple can find an option that suits their needs.

Custom Guidance Every Step of The Way From an Iowa Photographer

Preparation is key to having the best experience, and I’m here to guide you through every step. When you book your engagement session with me, I send over a questionnaire that helps me get to know you. This way I understand your dynamics as a couple, your preferences, and your vision for the session. Then I can make the engagement session as personalized and comfortable as possible. But don’t you worry, if you don’t have answers to ALL the questions – I’m there to help with any and all advice I can!

You will also receive a planning guide to help you with selecting the perfect locations, choosing your outfits, and other little tips and tricks.

Your Wedding Planning Partner

Beyond stunning wedding photography, I offer comprehensive planning and timeline guidance. From the early stages of wedding planning to the big day, I’m there to make sure you feel confident and relaxed. Being in your shoes and planning my own wedding, I know how important it is to have someone there to guide you!

Featured Engagement Session in the Blog: Caitlyn & Nick

I absolutely love how Caitlyn & Nick’s engagement photos in Sibley State Park, MN, turned out! The couple was so sweet and playful and we got to capture so many candid and romantic pics. Sibley State Park had such variety of different locations and it was great to capture their love in different settings. Each setting changes the vibe of the session completely. Same goes with an outfit change! Caitlyn and Nick chose cute, comfy and casual outfits for their engagement photos, and I’m so here for it! I always recommend choosing outfits that feel like YOU and allow you to feel confident and comfortable during your session.

Client Love

“OH MY WORD. You captured our love so beautifully!!! I love these <3 Seriously cherishing these little vids forever!” & “AHHH !!!! The best surprise this morning!!! Thank you so so much. I could not be more grateful that you’re our wedding photographer !!! THEY ARE PERFECT! I cannot get over it.”

Let’s Capture Your Love Story Next!

More than anything, I want the capturing of your engagement and wedding photos to be a joyful, stress-free experience. It’s not just about the photos – it’s about having fun, enjoying the time together and making memories along the way. Caitlyn & Nick’s session embodied exactly that, and it was clear they were having as much fun as I was. This is what I strive for in every session: a relaxed, carefree atmosphere where you can be yourselves.
