My name is Aaron (but you probably already guessed that), and I have been a professional wedding and portrait photographer in the Des Moines, Iowa area for 8 years. I consider myself quite lucky to enjoy what I do for a living and I take great pride in capturing portraits that will last a lifetime.
Weddings are my true passion and about 80% of my work. I've photographed over 100 weddings and I love how every wedding is unique and different. Everything about a wedding day has been meticulously planned to portray who you are as a couple and each wedding has a visual story to tell. It is truly an honor to be a part of my couple's wedding day and my goal is to create elegant, modern pictures to help tell that story.
I grew up in Waukee, Iowa and now reside in West Des Moines. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Photography and Graphic Design. My photography has taken me from Colorado, to Florida, to Mexico and even Abu Dhabi, so I consider myself to be quite lucky to have had those opportunities. When I'm not photographing, you will find me spending time with my family, listening to music, camping and fishing (fishing being the most likely).
Thanks for taking time to view my work and I hope you have enjoyed it! I am so thankful for the couples I've had the opportunity to photograph and spend time with and can't wait for what's to come!
