Des Moines, Iowa based wedding and family photography.

Hi! I'm Lisa.  I have been photographing beautiful couples and families for 10 years!  I love my job!  I love and I am completely honored that I get invited to each and every one of these weddings and that I get to capture all of the love that comes with it.   

A little bit about me... I am married to my love... Russ, and we just celebrated our 10 year anniversary.  We have three littles (a girl and two busy boys).  I love coffee.  I am a sweet addict.  I am passionate about my faith, running, baking, trying new recipes, health food, traveling (for weddings and with my family), and decorating and designing my home (my degree is actually in Interior Design from Iowa State).  But my biggest passion is being observant and documenting all of the wonderful, beautiful moments that happen in life.  

My photography style is considered fine art.  Fine art wedding photography means that as your photographer, I am actively capturing art as I document your day.  Over the years, I have learned to take focus on light, emotions, and details.  It is so exciting to see that every wedding is always so different and I am challenged every time to use my creativity to capture the day.
