Des Moines Wedding Photographers – Lindsay and Karl

I was so happy when I received Lindsay’s first email regarding her wedding:

I spent hours looking at all of your photos last night, and really fell in love with your work. I was prepared to steal from other parts of our budget to have you document our special day, and got soooo excited about the possibility.

They realized the value of having beautiful wedding photos and my style was a great fit for them. I knew right then that this was going to be a great wedding and I was right! In your search for Des Moines Wedding Photographers I am sure you came across a lot of weddings. I am sure very few of them were such a great mixture of elegance and casual like this one.

Salisbury House and Gardens

Lindsay and Karl started their day early, getting ready for the 9:30 am Salisbury House ceremony. They wanted to use the beautiful gardens for the ceremony but the weather wasn’t cooperating so they had to go with the backup plan and have the event inside.

I had a fantastic time documenting their big day. Here are some of my favorite images.

Simpson Barn wedding reception

Lindsay and Karl chose Simpson Barn for their reception. It’s a great venue if you’re planning a barn wedding, especially for a late-spring or early autumn date.
