|This was their award winning engagement porttrait (it's also hanging in my studio as a 30x40 canvas gallery wrap)|
Colleen and John's wedding was at the beautiful Bella Sala in Tiffin, IA. Colleen's dress is from XOXO Bridal. They were very down to earth, fun couple. All the bridesmaids wore Converse and all the guys wore Vans, which added a unique and fun detail to their wedding. Colleen wanted a mix of beautiful scenery and cool alleyways so we started out in downtown Iowa City where we were able to capture some interesting urban portraits using old loading docks, back alleyways and old doorways. Then we headed back to Bella Sala for a different look. The waterfall and trees made for a great background. Everything we did with Colleen and John turned out awesome and there are now a bunch of their portraits hanging on display in Bella Sala. Even their engagement portraits were stunning. In fact one of their engagement portraits is hanging in my studio and received the highest possible score in print competition this year at the Iowa Professional Photographers Convention - a perfect 100!
