A while back, I was fortunate to head down to Batavia, IA and hang out with this amazing family on their property while photographing Derek and Paula's engagement. In thinking back, it was probably the most fun I've ever had on an engagement shoot. So, in essence, that experience set the stage for this incredible wedding.
Paula and Derek were married and celebrated at the Barnes Place in Adel, IA, which has rapidly become one of my favorite venues for it's rustic decor and scenic landscapes. Working through the day with Paula, Derek, and their wonderful family was such a highlight for me this year and
I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such amazing people. Telling stories like this means so much to me and I'm very excited to share this with all of you today. Congratulations to Paula and Derek!
