Ashley & Ben {Wedding Day}

As we arrived in Davenport IA we immediately began scouting locations for the next day. Davenport is a very cool city situated right on the river. A plethora of historical buildings and charm, coupled with modern city architecture and hustle and bustle. Not to mention a BILLION cool spots for photographs. When we met with Ashley & Ben that evening they were so excited for what the weekend would bring. There was a buzz in the air and absolute happiness. With the locations marked on our GPS for the next day, we headed to the hotel for a good night’s sleep.

Dawn Devall - Karin, is it possible for you to get any better? I don’t think so!! You are the BEST there could EVEr be. You are amazing photographer- writer and person! And way to go Roger!!!!

Lisa - Holy Moly! All the photos are amazing, but the shots in the rain are JAW DROPPING. This wedding should be in Martha Stewart Weddings and the night rain shot should be ON THE COVER! I’m a HUGE fan for life!

Jessica - I’m not normally a blog commenter, but I had to take the time to say that you two are amazing. I think there are so many things that set your work apart from any other photographer’s work that I’ve ever seen. But the main thing I notice is your talent in telling a story. Most photogs don’t take the time to write such a heartfelt account of a day. But coupled with the images you walk away with a complete sense that you know the couple. I totally think your personalities and your body of work outshines anything I’ve ever seen locally and beyond. I look forward to each post!
(Guess I should’ve commented before – I wrote an entire book here!)

Mike B. - WOW. WOW. WOW.

Jessica Zobrist - Ummm, can I get married again? This time in the rain?

Amanda Zika - Okay, so this is my new fav wedding of yours. Couple the bride be any happier?!?! She is truly a woman head over heels in love. And I LOVE the lights at the reception. It reminds me of a fairy tale.

Stephanie & Todd {Engaged}

Being kids together. Growing up together. Becoming teens together. The chapters of their lives always intertwined and weaving in and out, yet remaining independently separate. There were some close calls. Some instances that border on dating, or at the very least – flirtation. Like during psychology class when they would push their desks together every time a movie was played and whisper to one another. She’d write on his notebook Todd + Stephanie. “One day we will date each other.” she whispered.

Clare - Karin and Roger – These are absolutely fabulous! Thank you so much for such a fun day and being such great photographers. Can’t wait till 10/28!

Amanda Zika - You are so good at getting people comfortable in front of the camera. You can tell this couple was having an awesome time and loved being in front of your lense. Awesome, awesome session and I love the locations!

Christa & Josh {Wedding Day}

Laid back. Easy going. Calm. Not always the words that tend to describe the flurry and frenzy of a wedding day. But the day after Prince William and Kate were married, Christa and Josh did the same. Only they did it with ease. It wasn’t that the day didn’t mean alot, or that they didn’t have an amazing day planned. The fact of the matter was that Christa wanted to marry Josh, and THAT was the only thing that mattered.

Amanda Zika - Karin, you once called me the child whisperer (or something like that) but I think you stole that title from me with this wedding. That shot of the kids walking out the door and at the reception are unbelievable. I am in love!!!
