Amber and Charlie are West Branch locals, which means we were able to use the small town as the backdrop for all of their portraits, and I’m not complaining here! I absolutely love the newest wedding venue in the area, Little Lights on the Lane and using the local park, main street, and the pizza restaurant, Herb n Lou’s. 

Charlie has the sweetest little boy, Hunter, and Amber wrote them both letters that morning. 

Getting married in January, in Iowa, the weather can be very unpredictable. Amber really wanted snow for their wedding day, and the Iowa weather decided to give them a snow and ice mixture, but we made it work and the portraits turned out beautifully!

Along the lines of the Iowa winters, many couples and their bridal party try to avoid the outdoors because it can be so cold. And with the snow and ice mixture we got, it was quite cold! But Amber and Charlie and their super fun bridal party made it work and let me do all their photos outside!
