Cody + Trisha | Wedding

I've known Cody and Trisha for a few months now ... It all started back in December, when Trisha contacted me to do their engagement photos in the snow. It was my first time officially doing engagement photos, and it was so awesome. We instantly clicked and I was lucky enough to get Cody to smile (not the fake smile, but a REAL smile).

Not too long after their engagement session, Trisha called me again - and asked me to be their official wedding photographer in April. What an honor!! I totally jumped at the chance to do it!

So in April, I flew to this beautiful, little country town in Iowa and spent the weekend with both of their families and friends. The food was amazing, the scenery was gorgeous ... I loved every minute of it. For the rehearsal dinner, we ate at Dolce Vita - some of the most delicious wood-fired pizza I've eaten in a while. I stayed at the Hotel Winneshiek in the historic downtown area, and it was amazing. I wish I'd taken some shots of the hotel while I was there, the spa jacuzzi was to die for and my bed was ... well ... heaven wrapped in sheets. Seriously amazing.

Since Trisha is a dear friend of mine, I spent the whole day with her - from the salon to the reception, capturing as much as I possibly could. Here are a few sneak peek shots!

Congratulations to Cody and Trisha, may God bless you a lifetime of happiness and joy.
With love,
