Morio Family Pics 10.20.13 I shot Janelle and Tysons wedding around 7 years ago so I was flattered they thought of me for their family photo.  It was cold and misty but the kids were troopers and we got some good shots.  Thanks Janelle and Tyson!

Wedding -- Kristina and Bill 0062 Congratulations Kristina and Bill!  What a fantastic day for an outdoor wedding.  The ceremony was held at the gazebo in Duck Creek Park, Davenport.   Flowers and lilacs were in full bloom.  The reception was held at the Black Hawk hotel and we had a fabulous view of the Mississippi.

On the way to the reception we stopped at the fountain in Vander Veer botanical park for some more stunning pics.

I love outdoor weddings and this one certainly provided its share of wonderful photo opportunities.  Make sure and check out the complete wedding coverage.

WEDDING - Hailey and Nick 0226 Congratulations Hailey and Nick!  A lot of rainy Saturdays this wedding season but Hailey and Nick took it in stride!  The rain let up just enough for us to head to Palisades Park for some photos after the ceremony.  The "Team Twister" party bus lent a unique flair to the whole affair as well.   The Ceremony was at St Peter and Paul chapel just outside of Solon and the reception was at the Marriott on Collins Road.

Wedding Kassi and Lee 12.08.2012 Congratulations Kassi and Lee!  Couldn't ask for a nicer early December day.  The wedding was at The General Store in Stone City right in front of a big old fireplace.  We had great natural light flooding in through the large east facing windows that made for some great pictures.

Aaron and Mary Oathout September 30th, 2012 Aaron and Mary, what a fun wedding!  It was a perfect fall day at Squaw Creek Park at the Red Cedar Lodge.  The food was awesome and better yet,  Aaron and Mary had provided a fine collection of craft beers from Third Base Brewery in Cedar Rapids (Formerly Cedar Brewing Company).  That and live music.   And I actually get paid for this!?   Oh and all the kids received a free kite and most all of them were flying them by the end of the evening.

Thank you Aaron and Mary for letting me share in such a wonderful day!

James and Meagan August 11th, 2012

James and Meagan were married on a beautiful summer day in West Liberty at the Secrest Octagonal Barn.   What a fantastic place for a wedding!  Everything was so unique and fresh,  and it really had that heartland Iowa feel.   The wedding was photographed by Kevin Kamp of Elite Photography with my good friend Mike Nickell as the second shooter.  I would have loved to have been there but was hit by a car the week before while riding my bike in RAGBRAI.  Thanks Kevin and Mike for stepping in and providing some fantastic coverage for this wonderful couple!
