Amanda and Josh were the first couple that I had ever booked a wedding with, and I had never met. Usually, I meet with my bride and grooms to get to know each other, make sure we are a good fit...I show them my portfolio, what I have to offer as a photographer, and just more information about the entire process.
Amanda and Josh live in Iowa City, so rather than meet in person, we decided to FaceTime each other! I knew instantly that us 3 would make a great team when it came down to their wedding. And I was right!
The wedding was held at the Sherton Hotel in West Des Moines, and it was so pretty! The colors Amanda and Josh chose really went well with the "winter" theme (although it was nice enough to be outdoors), and really complimented the two of them.
They had guests who traveled far to be there, some guests who they hadn't seen in a very long time, and all of them were having a blast! I was honored to be a part of their day, and excited to share some of the photos!
Thank you to all of the vendors who took part in Amanda + Josh's big day!
