Kathryn + Brian [Iowa City, IA Garden Wedding Photography]

Kathryn and Brian were married last Saturday, June 23rd in a beautiful garden ceremony at her parents' home in Iowa City. It was the perfect location for these two to start their lives together, and it was an absolutely wonderful day. If you want to see even more photos from their day, click HERE to view their custom wedding website.

We started out the day taking lots of detail photos, Kathryn and her mom made intricate origami hearts and orbs that hung from the trees and fences. The florist (Fountain of Flowers) helped to transform their backyard into an even more lush garden paradise!

Kathryn's dress was unbelievable, something out of a fairy tale with all the ruffles and tulle.

Kathryn and Brian chose not to see each other before the ceremony, and despite being just one floor apart in the same house, we managed to keep them from getting a peek. Kathryn and the bridesmaids' hair and makeup was done by Lotus Salon and Darla Jaquay at Lotus. They all looked amazing, and Kathryn looked especially beautiful.

Nora [North Liberty, IA Newborn Photography]

As I mentioned last month when I took maternity photos for Stacy & Matt, they have been good friends of ours as well as neighbors for awhile now. I was so honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph their new addition, gorgeous Miss Nora (born June 5th).

The session started out with me ooh-ing and ahh-ing over this sweet baby, so much that Josh was afraid baby fever was in the air and jokingly said "let's go home!" within the first five minutes. She was such a perfect model as well, sleeping and barely making a peep the entire time.

Stacy & Matt, I am so so happy for you guys - Nora is just perfect. I hope you enjoy the preview, and if you ever need a babysitter - I live nearby. ;)

Stacy found the cutest name plaques on Etsy, customized to match Nora's bedding. Love! Nora-8644 copy*
