2012 Ames High Girls Cross Country

We recently made our first high school sports poster for the AHS girls XC team. Dan was an XC runner in high school and the girls coach is a friend of ours, so we took the opportunity to make XC look as cool as it deserves (it's easily the most underrated high school sport). For any of you not familiar with Ames, we are the "Little Cyclones" (Iowa State is the "Cyclones"), hence the storm and twister in the background. If you're local, these will be floating around town soon so be sure and snag one... the girls might even autograph it for you if you go to one of their meets!

Kelly & Nick (married)

Kelly & Nick did an outstanding job incorporating their favorite places and things into their wedding day. The couple has deep roots at Iowa State University. (If you recall their engagement session, we photographed around campus town and inside the bar where they first met.) Being Cyclone alumni and fans ourselves, we were very excited to receive access to photograph some portraits inside Jack Trice Stadium! It's safe to say the experience was a dream come true for everybody involved and we learned that girls rock at football (see below). Kelly & Nick tied the knot right next to the stadium inside the conservatory at the always beautiful Reiman Gardens. A favorite moment was when Kelly's adorable niece decided to take a nap in her daddy's arms prior her moment to shine as flower girl. After the ceremony the ISU theme was continued when we boarded a CyRide bus for a romantic cruise before the couple's introduction to their reception at the Knapp Storm Dinning Complex. The reception was decorated like a night club with moody purple and blue lights and Kelly & Nick put on a show cutting their zombie wedding cake , which read "Til death do us part..."

Kelly & Nick (engaged)

Per Kelly and Nick's brilliant request, we photographed their engagement session in campus town at Iowa State University. We started the session at Chasers, the bar where Kelly and Nick first met while playing beer pong with mutual friends. Some of those friends were able to make it back and join us for part of the session :) Afterwards we walked around and played at meaningful campus town locations, including the Welch Ave Station mural and Cyride buses as they drove by. Kelly and Nick's engagement session was a blast and we can't wait for the wedding!
