Des Moines Wedding Photographer | Bryan & Christina

Yesterday I photographed Bryan & Christina’s wedding.  It was beautiful!  There was so much emotion that it was hard not to get caught up in it.  I still cry at every wedding.  Thank goodness it doesn’t affect my shooting because if someone else is crying, I usually am too.  Especially if I know the story behind it.  Yesterday was full of those moments!  Here is a sneak peak to their gorgeous day!  Bryan & Christina, thank you for letting me be a part of your wonderful day and also thank you for making me feel like part of the family! 🙂

I also just want to note that although for a lot of these shots, I have decided to post the ‘vintage’ versions, the bride will be getting the originals too.  I love both versions! 🙂  If you want to see originals, just let me know!

I also apologize, this will be a lengthy post.  There are too many photos I love, it was hard to narrow it down!
