I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex.

Paul, Andrea and Grace

What a fun day we had, for Andrea and Paul's wedding day. Grace was such a trooper and loved being in front of the camera.

The ceremony was held at the Dubuque Botanical Gardens, what a beautiful place.

 We headed out to the Riverwalk and then into the Millworks District.

The license was signed on the grounds of the beautiful Lady Of Lourdes, which Andrea's family is converting into apartments. I fell in love with that building, and didn't even get to go inside.

 A slight light saber accident...

The cake was a surprise for Paul.

First we had the Bride and Groom's first dance.

 Then Paul and Grace had their dance...

Still Here

With photography not being my career, sometimes other parts of life demand attention. I'm still taking photos, I just post more often over on facebook, one or two at a time. I'm on Instagram, if you would like to find me there.

Early this month, I walked through my garden/yard before heading off to work. I found a real lady bug while I was out and about.

I think Momma Robin lost her nest. This was under one of my bushes.

I found a real Lady Bug!

Engagement Photos!

Spent a lovely early autumn afternoon out on the farm, taking engagement photos as they get ready to start their lives together as a new family.

First, we had to head out into the fields and find some of the old buildings and foundations.
