Anne + Dominic | Weddings by LeahAndMark & Co.

We are very fortunate that we get hired to photograph a wide variety of weddings. Weddings that take place in churches, parks, art museums, and of course – farms in Iowa. Anne & Dominic first flew me out to San Francisco where they live, for their engagement session (see here). A few months later we all flew out to Iowa where Anne’s parents live. And yeah. It was all pretty, and awesome, and beautiful – and check out that BLUE SKY. And yes – the idea that someone would fly me across the country twice – just to photograph them – is kind of crazy – and amazing – and just… we definitely wanted to do a great job for Anne & Dominic. We wanted to make them some photos that we just couldn’t make anywhere else.

That’s the trick though isn’t it? Especially for us when we’re being flown all over the country to photograph weddings. Photos from a wedding in California shouldn’t look like photos from a wedding in Maine. Photos from a wedding in Boston shouldn’t look like photos from a wedding in Berkeley. Different locations, different times – and definitely different clients. Even if you use the same poses – a good photographer would know how to make the shot unique to that situation; unique to the couple.

Anne & Dominic? Amazing. Awesome. Dominating?… ah… I should’ve stopped while I was ahead.

(oh – we also flew our photobooth all the way to Iowa as well! Check out those crazy shots, here.)

We Love Iowa Weddings | by LeahAndMark

We’ve been in Iowa for the last two weekends for a pair of amazing weddings! What’s also kind of crazy is that both couples you see here – don’t actually live in Iowa. Lisa & Luke (Lisa has the flower wreath) live in New York, and Anne & Dominic live in San Francisco. I cannot express how grateful, appreciative, and all out honored I was that they took a chance and flew us out to Iowa for their weddings.

Of course – these two couples don’t know each other and it was all by fortunate circumstance that their weddings were right after one another. In fact – you might recognize Anne & Dominic from their engagement session that I photographed earlier this year in San Francisco! [See Here] – I KNOW – they flew me out to San Francisco for their engagement session and then Iowa for their wedding. Didn’t I say I couldn’t express how appreciative and honored I am?! Anne & Dominic’s engagement session was also the very first time I started experimenting with my simultaneous video + photo super camera rig.

Which led to The Robot setup that I currently use with… 3 cameras.

Of course – none of the gear matters if you don’t make great photos – and if people fly you thousands of miles back and forth across the country then you really don’t have any options other than to make amazing photos. No pressure though.

Hey! It’s Monday! I’ll be in Raleigh, N.C. tonight, Austin on Wednesday, and then back in Atlanta for a wedding (an Atlanta wedding?! I know – it’s rare these days!) We have a lot of editing and finishing up to do this week but if you have any questions – just let me know.
