80/35 Portraits for DMS Magazine

Dan recently had the pleasure of creating some artwork for  DSM Magazine featuring Jill and Hillary from On Pitch marketing agency, the beloved Poison Control Center and Justin from the Greater Des Moines Music Coalition, all of whom are heavily involved in this years 80/35 music festival. Dozens of separate images were photographed and collaged with tape and scissors to create whimsical backdrops tied together  by iconic Des Moines architectural elements. The cut-and-paste style is intended to celebrate the way music ties us together and the power it has over influencing our attitudes and perceptions.

Christin & Paul (married)

Christin and Paul's wedding was a blast! The day started with pre–ceremony portraits at St. Francis of Assisi in West Des Moines, including some moody groomsmen photos inspired by the Rat Pack. The church provided a fantastic backdrop for the ceremony with its modern, but still awe–inspiring, art and design. Afterwards we took a quick limo cruise and stopped for a few more portraits on the way to the reception at The Marriott. Christin and Paul's chemistry was wonderful to capture. They savored their day to the fullest and it was a joy to watch them interact. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the day:
