I chose the medium of photography as a tool to capture the essence of the person or place. I create images to depict the subject as they are remembered in the mind. Not posed or unnatural, but as a window into the intimate world of the subject.” Jill Brown is a member of Professional Photographers of America.

Laura + Jared = Married!

Date:  June 12, 2010
Ceremony:  Chapel at the Lutheran Church of Hope - West Des Moines
Reception:  Sticks - Des Moines


Laura and Jared's wedding took place in the Chapel at the Lutheran Church of Hope is West Des Moines.  It was a beautiful location.  The church was so well lit - I would love to shoot another wedding there!  There is also a beautiful prayer garden right next to the church that provided a great and quick location for some pre-wedding photos of the bride and groom.  :)


The reception was located at the Sticks Warehouse on SW 61st Street.  This is where the people at Sticks create all of there awesome furniture, but it is also a BeAuTiFuL location for a reception!   


My favorite part of the day - the dancing!  This group LOVED to dance.  They danced so much that I even had some time to experiment with some new ideas!  I just love the way the high ISO/no flash exposures turned out!  


Congratulations Laura and Jared!  I wish you all the best!

Really good stuff Jill! Love the dancing pic with the green light. Holy smokes!

Thanks Chris! I am loving what you all have been doing with the lens flair in your last wedding and the Tilt Shift! Do you have a tilt shift lens, or are you doing that in PS? It looks awesome! :)

what a great couple and beautiful day! and is that the famous rings on the twig shot, where one of the rings fell off and...?

Jill A. Brown said...

No... no those are not the same rings that fell off or the same wedding... ;) Thank goodness it didn't happen a second time! These were much more protected. NO WAY something was going to happen to those rings!! :D

Really awesome pictures! I love all the action shots of the dancing and even putting on the veil.
The rings on the twig is a great idea!

Incredible photos. I wish you were closer, so that I could be an apprentice.
