“Working with Cat was such an amazing experience! How she captured so many of mine and Dallas’ emotions that day was amazing and we will be able to look back at that and remember exactly how we felt that day! The quality was amazing and how fast she was able to give me a sneak peek was even better! Over all I couldn’t have asked for a better experience for our wedding day!” 


On the morning of Dallas & Ashley’s wedding, I started coverage at Gymkana Blue Salon in downtown Dubuque, where Ashley works as a stylist. Someone had a bag sitting there that said, “All you need is good hair.” With a wedding party FULL of stylists, that could have definitely been the motto for the day. Although I’d say it was, “All you need is good hair & good friends.” … with the added bonus of a wonderfully supportive family & perfect weather. As you can guess, it was a great freaking day. Since I photographed Dallas’s brother’s wedding as well, I felt like I was surrounded by familiar faces. I absolutely love it when I get to photograph multiple weddings within the same family. They said “I do” at The Derby Grange Barn in Dubuque, and then headed to Bellevue for a riverside wedding reception at The Shore Event Centre.
