As far as weddings go...last weekend was epic. I can't even begin to explain the love and connection that I witnessed between Ashley and Chad during their Maquoketa, IA wedding. Documenting couples like this is why I got into this business and seeing the way these two love each other unconditionally is truly inspiring. This is a couple that prize their relationship and having fun more than anything else — something that was immediately apparent by both the style of their wedding and the kind of company they keep.

As for the day itself, the wedding couldn't have been more perfect. We shared an unbelievable portrait session in some caves, enjoyed a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony, partied at a laid-back barn reception, and followed up the amazing day with a perfect sparkler exit. I truly can't wait to share this one, but until then, here's a single frame that sums up everything you need to know about these two.
