Kayla + Steve | Iowa Summertime Wedding

Most of our wedding couples we have the opportunity to photograph are couples that we are meeting for the very first time, but this wasn’t the case for Steve and Kayla. The 4 of us are all within 3 years of each other and graduated from the same high school. So the minute they walked through the door, we knew this would be an amazing experience. Steve and Kayla are about as humble and laid back as it gets.

Steve and Kayla’s engagement session was on a chilly day where we just had some Iowa flurries the night before, of course! But some bitter temperatures didn’t hamper these two as they were constantly laughing and cracking jokes the entire time. We were able to capture some beautiful images of these two and from there, we knew capturing the emotion of these two and their love story would be so much fun and so naturally easy.

On August 22, 2015, we arrived at St Paul Lutheran Church in Carroll, IA. With the chances of rain later in the day, it was surprisingly a warm, bright and sunny day, but boy was it windy. You could tell how long the two have waited for their wedding day. One of our favorite moments from the day would have to be Kayla's dad's reaction to seeing his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time. It's true, real emotions like these that we just love being able to capture. Same with Steve and Kayla's first look, you could tell how truly happy they were together. The day went by so smoothly, with the rain holding off until after everyone made it to the reception in Dedham, IA. It was our first time photographing a reception here, and it was beautiful. The whole day flew by and your wedding party was a blast! I hope you had as much fun as we did. We wish you nothing but happiness in your future together Kayla & Steve, cheers!
