Summer Wedding at the Villa

This job is a whole lot easier when you genuinely like the people you’re photographing. Michael and Andrea were so laid-back and easy to work with made me feel like I was more of a guest at their wedding than anything else. After having to plan their wedding three times due to Covid, a lot of couples would have chose to forgo the wedding. They were not going to deny their friends and family the opportunity to enjoy the best day of their lives together. We started early to do some photography of them separately. We then headed to the Ames public library. It is such a unique and great space to shoot. We then headed to The Villa to spend the rest of the day. What better place to host an event? We did all the photography prior to the ceremony so that they can get back to enjoy their own cocktail hour. We were fortunate enough to be able To get a really nice sunset. The rest of the day was filled with fun and dancing. I was so happy to be able to be part of the day. I am confident the imagery reflects how much they truly enjoy being with each other.
