  1. #1 Blackcap Photography

    (28 reviews)

    Eva O.

    Cody is an amazing photographer!! We booked him almost a year and a half in advance, and he kept in touch every couple months just to make sure we knew he was there if we needed anything. He is very organized, sets up quick, and always conscious of his surroundings. We will continue to use Blackcap Photography for family pictures for years to come!!

    (4 reviews)

    Kimberly V.

    These girls were wonderful. They come as a team. They listened to our ideas and worked a little out side the traditional style in a way that suited our style. They were both really easy to work with and we have some sample shotsbafter just two weeks. I cannot wait to see the rest.

    Jarae' S.

    Working with Alison Claire Photography was absolutely wonderful! Alison is very professional, very organized, listens to your suggestions, and most important of all, has a great eye for amazing shots! As Stressful as it can be planning a wedding, I can honestly say that once meeting with Alison, I was put at ease. I couldn't have asked for a more talented, and easy going photographer. I would be honored to work with her in the future and would recommend her to friends and family.

  6. #6 Captured by Bella

    (3 reviews)

    Jessica S.

    I recommend Captured to anyone and everyone! Not only did they bare with us through a very hectic, rainy, all over the place day but they made sure I, the Bride, got what I wanted. And even drove my husband and I to our location when things got crazy. We had an absolute blast with Bella and Kelly. They are so fun and you really feel like you're just out having pictures taken by your friends. My husband isn't really a picture guy but they make you feel so comfortable and are always snapping to be sure and catch those candid moments. From the time I started hair and make up, well into the reception they were there capturing every special moment of my day. I cannot wait to see how my pictures turned out. If they are half as good as Bella is sweet, I will be over the moon!

Doug McBride PhotoCinema

What do you love about your job?

I love sitting with a client for the first time and custom building their very own special photography and/or video production wedding package, as well as explaining all the things we can do to make their day as memorable as possible. Bridal couples get so excited at all the options I present them. Planning their day with me is a wonderful experience.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I studied Fine Art Photography at The University of Iowa. There were always students needing an experienced photographer for something. One day, someone asked if I would photograph their wedding day, I said yes. Next thing I knew, someone else asked, and this person referred someone else. It just grew and grew until I reached where I am today. I also studied Motion Picture Film at Iowa, so it wasn't long before I offered video along with photography to my clients.

Describe your most memorable project.

I remember back when a bride came to my home to look through her wedding photographs (I was shooting film in the 1990s). She looked through about 200 images, and when she closed the book, I noticed she was crying. I thought I must have done something wrong to make her cry, and I was very upset. She looked at me, wiped away the tears, and said, "We've seen photos other people took at our wedding, but we've never seen anything as beautiful as these. These as so wonderful." I remember her words to this day. I almost started crying myself. It's amazing to bring so much joy to a person who was a perfect stranger just six months earlier.
