Brooke & Kolby Tie the Knot

I had an amazing time with Brooke, Kolby and their wonderful family and friends on their wedding day! Even though the temp hit 98 degrees, nothing was going to stop this celebration. Here’s a sneak peek from the big day, but be sure to check back soon for more. #MooretoLove

Liz & Jordan Say “I Do”

Liz and Jordan tied the knot recently at Saint John and Paul Parish with their reception following at Toad Valley Golf Course in Altoona. Miniature golf and yard games were part of the celebration and I was honored to share in their day! Here’s a sneak peek from this fun couple’s big day, but be sure to check back soon for more.

Matthew & Michael’s Showemony

I had a fantastic time photographing Matthew and Michael’s “Showemony” in Coralville, IA recently and it was, without a doubt, one of the most entertaining weddings I’ve ever had the privilege of capturing. Be sure to check back soon for more from this big event. #kammerersmith

Paige & Chris Tie the Knot

My wedding season kicked off with Paige & Chris exchanging vows in North Liberty, IA on the last weekend of April.  It was a beautiful day, despite the fact that the weather did not cooperate!  The cold and rainy weather forced the planned outdoor wedding inside, and friends and family spent the rehearsal night moving everything into the church and reconfiguring the entire day in one night.  Clearly, if the stress and anxiety of a completely washed out plan doesn’t turn a couple on each other, nothing will, and Paige and Chris proved that true love can overcome anything. I am grateful to have been a part of something so special! PS – We couldn’t take any pictures outside on the wedding day, and they really had their hearts set on outside pics.  So, I met up with them a month after their wedding to capture these images.  Check back soon for more of this couple.

Rebecca & Derek’s E-session

Here’s a sneak peek from my recent session with Rebecca and Derek in Tama, IA. For some reason they were nervous about the shoot, and both commented that they weren’t photogenic before we even got started. I have NO IDEA what they’re talking about! They were a dream to photograph and it’s obvious the camera loves them. Click here to see more of this cute couple.

Jessica & Johnny’s E-session

I had a wonderful afternoon with Jessica and Johnny recently, shooting their engagement session at Gray’s Lake in Des Moines and City Park in Winterset. We couldn’t have asked for a prettier day. Click here to see more from this session.

Luke and Katy’s Esession

Recently, I spent a day in Toledo, IA shooting this adorable couple’s engagement pics. Luke proposed to Katy while riding on a big ole’ tractor, so it makes perfect sense that they would select his Uncle’s farm as our session backdrop. I had Kenny Chesney’s “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” running around in my head all afternoon! Click here to see more from this sweet country session.

Cass & Charles’ Engagements

I had a lot of fun with Cassandra and Charles during their engagement shoot on the family farm in Elliott, IA.  I’m super excited about their September wedding at the same gorgeous location, but for now, click here to see more from this session.

My Day as the M.O.B.

Following my own advice, this weekend I was the M.O.B. and not the photographer. It was such a wonderful day and I’m so blessed to have shared this moment with family and friends, and my daughter and new son-in-law, David.  Of course, I couldn’t help myself and had to take the phone out for one quick pic. Thanks to @stephendangerfield for handling the photography duties with skill and charm. We can’t wait to see the results. #Weldonwedding #Love #weddingphotography #wedding


Brooke and Kolby’s E-session

Spring is in the air, and that means it’s engagement session time!  My first of the year was with Brooke and Kolby, who will be tying the knot in June.  We hit several locations around beautiful Winterset, IA and I truly enjoyed my time getting to know this wonderful couple. It’s so easy to see how in love these two are, which made my job so easy, and I can’t wait for the big day. Click here to see more from this engagement session.
