Anna + Jon | Brenton Arboretum | Simpson Barn Wedding//October 2, 2012

Iowa Wedding Photographer

Delightful. Cute. Easy going. Well Coordinated. Authentic.

Driving down to Des Moines from the Twin cities for the first time, made me realize how different our world is today. I met with Anna and Jon online and never in person before their wedding – something that happens quite often these days. Without (hopefully) sounding too old, the technology we have today allows us to do so much more than we’ve ever been able to. With all the developments in the area of digital photography, and the expansion of the internet, we (wedding photographers) are able to give our clients a far better product that we could 10 years ago. But the internet can also drown us in a sea of information – staying true to yourself as an artist and produce unique work can be much more difficult than ever before.

I don’t think Anna and Jon could have planned a better wedding for themselves. Anna, a graphic designer, and Jon, a professional photographer (check out his work here) had many personal touches that helped make their day as unique and authentic as they are. The ceremony at the Brenton Arboretum was beautiful and personal. After the ceremony, Anna’s Father took us out for ice cream in his 1931 Durant, a car that was purchased by Anna’s grandfather. The reception at Simpson Barn had everything you’d want to have: great food, music by Anna’s friends, and plenty of activities for adults and kids. Guys, I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed working with you. Congrats!
