I have not met one person (and trust I’ve met alot, these two are well-loved) that isn’t head over heels for these two as a couple. They are quite literally two of the sweetest, kindest, and genuinely nice people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I am so incredibly blessed to have spent a gorgeous Saturday with them and their close family and friends. We started with a meaningful ceremony at the St. Peters and Paul’s Cathedral in Solon, IA and then moved to the (LOVE THIS VENUE) new Terry Trueblood Lodge in Iowa City. That place is extra special because David proposed to Natalie at that very park!

I had a very difficult time narrowing down my favorites, please enjoy their story!

Cedar Falls Wedding Photography, Iowa City Wedding Photographer | Laci & Andrew Married!July 25, 2014

Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding072_WEB

These two had an amazing day! They were surrounded by some awesome family and friends that were full of life and fun.  I’m so excited to share their St. Patrick’s Church wedding followed by a little jaunt in downtown Cedar Falls and a lovely reception at Isle Capri Casino in Waterloo, Iowa.

Without a doubt what I can say is that these two are just so incredibly sweet and laid back. You would have never know it was their wedding day by how accommodating and willing they were to do whatever. Carolyn, you want to take photos for eons? Sure! ;) I sure do love a willing and ready bride and groom!

Special thanks to Jenn of Minnesota Nice Photography for helping capture this day for me!Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding036_WEB Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding001_WEB Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding003_WEB Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding006_WEB Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding005_WEB Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding007_WEB Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding009_WEB Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding008_WEB Carolyn_Ann_Photography_Cedar_Falls_Iowa_Wedding010_WEB

Iowa City Lifestyle Family Photos, Natural and Candid Family Photography in Iowa | Freya and the N FamilyJuly 14, 2014

Natural and Candid Family Photography Iowa

This family is just downright ADORABLE! I literally just had to sit back and document all the love and fun going on between these three.  I am so thankful when I have a family that truly wants lifestyle session and is willing to play more than they pose. I hope these bring you all fun memories of a warm summer night at the park :)

ps Freya, that little lady up there, has SO much spunk and sass, she was made for photo shoots!Carolyn Ann Photography Family Portraits

In the midst of taking these adorable family photos under this tree, something magical happened! Freya began to wander off and almost simultaneously mom and dad said, “Oh she LOVES manhole covers!” I am in no place to judge appropriate hobbies and such, but c’mon does that NOT define how much spunk this girl has?!?

Iowa Candid and Natural Family Photography, Coralville Family Photos | Oliver is 3 Months Old!July 11, 2014

North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos

I’ve been SO incredibly lucky to get to know these wonderful parents since they were expecting. Oliver has grown so much since he was a newborn, and I can’t wait to see him grow some more.

We started with some in-house cuddling, my favorite! Then we headed to Northridge Park in Coralville, a favorite of Linsey, Jon, and that handsome devil Deisel.  Enjoy this lovely family (as you can tell it was awfully hard for me to narrow down my favorites!)Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos Coralville Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Liberty Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos North Ridge Park Coralville Family Photos North Ridge Park Coralville Family Photos Natural and Candid Family Photography Iowa
