I first met Cara at the University of Minnesota in our junior year bible study and we got to know each other even more when we were bridesmaids in our friend Sarah’s wedding last summer. Shortly after I moved back to Des Moines from Minneapolis, Cara contacted me telling me that she and Jim were engaged and asked if I would be their wedding photographer. I was so unbelievably excited!
Cara and Jim are both very active and have actually trained and completed a triathlon and have done various long distance bike rides together. And they did a great job of incorporating that into their wedding day. They even ditched their dress shoes for their running shoes for a few photos.They had such a God honoring day and were both so happy and excited to be married. Cara is probably one of the happiest people I have ever met, and that definitely didn’t disappear on her wedding day. She was full of smiles!
Cara and Jim – thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me to photograph your wedding day and being some of my biggest supporters as I started out on this wedding photography dream of mine. I hope you enjoy looking back on the memories from your day!
Cara you are gorgeous!
Cara’s brother got to ring the church bells to signal the beginning of the ceremony!

Right after I snapped this photo of Jim and his college roommates, I asked if they wanted a fun pose and the following photo is what I got!
