For brides

2019 was a great year! Even though business was a little bit slower, I was still able to be a part of 13 weddings. Besides just weddings, I loved taking lots of family and maternity pictures. It was especially fun to capture some of my own family members and good friends.

Even though it had been cold all week, Max and Jacy had a beautiful sunny day for their wedding. They had their ceremony at New Era Lutheran Church in Muscatine. I love how their burgundy color scheme matched the interior of the church. Their color scheme was accented with pale pink, navy, and lots of greenery.
