Alden & Erin were my first wedding for 2014. This is going to be a busy year for me and I was excited to get it started. I’ve set a number of photographic goals for myself this year. One of the more important ones is to really prioritize and focus on documenting family interactions. There’s a lot going on at a wedding and if you don’t force yourself to slow down and pay attention it’s easy to miss some of the quieter things that are happening.
With that said, Alden & Erin’s wedding was a perfect start for the year. Their ceremony was held at the Des Moines Botanical Garden, attended by family and close friends. The intimate reception that followed was at the Sheraton West Des Moines. Even as an outsider it was clear to me that family was important to this group and I’m glad I had the opportunity to document the day.
Here are some of my favorites!
