Photography for those who want their story told

raw. emotional. bespoke.

Iowa Based Wedding, Elopement, and Family Photographer

The goal of your engagement and wedding photos is telling a story: the story of you two.

As a very relational focused person, we build that relationship with you before your big day so you're both comfortable and free to be yourselves! It shows SO much in your photos! (And we have more fun!) Knowing you two on a deeper level than just another wedding vendor is my goal as the one capturing and preserving your wedding day!

Having experience in both intimate and large weddings: both are beautiful and viable options. And you shouldn't be feeling guilty if you want to opt for a smaller setting! Whether you want your story to be told with everyone you care about present, or you're wanting your wedding to be 20 close friends and family members! You want someone who values and understands whatever your vision is!

"Someone suggested Corah to us and we fell in love with her work right away...To this day my husband still mentions how much fun he had during the shoot and it was nothing like he had expected, it was a perfect way to start our wedding day. When we received our photos we were absolutely in love with them, she captured us in the most magical way."

'Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.'

-Louis de Bernieres

Hi, I'm corah

You're on here because you found someone who makes your heart happy. Who after a long day you want to be in their arms, who you come back to after the fights, who you feel safe with. You found the person who feels like home, and that is something so intricately beautiful.

It's that intricate love that got me into weddings. It's that kind of love I share with my husband, and adore seeing and photographing in others. You deserve someone who knows, sees and values that kind of love. Your complex love deserves to be captured truthfully, with joy, and intimately.
