Iowa & Destination Wedding Photographer | Carly & Jake

Last weekend I shot a wedding at the Blank Park Zoo.  What a fun experience that was!  Aside from the upper 90’s weather (which we all handled wonderfully), it was gorgeous.  The bride didn’t even seem to look like she was sweaty in the photos.  We had the zoo to ourselves for portraits, which was amazing.  Not all the animals were out, but we were able to get some pretty neat shots with some of the animals.  Later they held the dancing right in the main lobby, where you will see that the bride and groom seriously know how to party!  Thank you Carly and Jake, I had such a fun time at your wedding!!
