We all need an idea on how the photography goes along during the wedding day. This gives you a quick idea of just how quickly the day goes and why you need time set aside for those beautiful images that you will cherish for the rest of your life. Use this as a guide, change it to fit your needs and enjoy!
Robert and Autumn are two peas in a pod and that's the truth. They are an incredible couple and in that I thought the best way for you to know them was to hear about them from them.
"'We met in March of 1998. Robert was standing in front of my church wearing his suit and tie. "Man, I wish someone that good looking went to my church!" I'm not going to lie...it was love at first sight. We talked and played volleyball together at the church picnic and I thought that would be the last time I would see him since he lived in California and I in Colorado. I was wrong...Robert returned in May for Neil and Candy's wedding. Again we went to the church picnic only this time we spent the afternoon taking a stroll through the park. He asked Candy for my phone number which she gladly gave...I had no idea, neither had I any objections.
Over the next several weeks Robert and I spent a lot of money with long distance phone calls and he would make the occasional trip out to Colorado to spend time with me. The 12 hour trip was becoming a strain however. On one trip Robert began to pray, "Lord, you have to make it easier for us to see each other. I'm falling in love with this woman! I'm going to have to break up with her because I just can't do this anymore!" When Robert got home there was a phone call. "Robert! You are not going to believe what I have to tell you! We have a new family in our church and the husband is a pilot for Southwest Airlines! He said that we can fly back and forth whenever we want to for free with his buddy passes!" Robert didn't need any further information that this relationship was ordained of God. Robert told me over the phone one day, "You should just move to California and marry me." To which I replied, "Ok!"
Towards the end of August I moved to California and on September 19, 1998 Robert and I were married. Seventeen years later we are still very much in love and very much the best of friends.'"
Congratulations on seventeen years of marriage Autumn and Robert!
He got up. He got up to go to work and supply for his family. They had two children and had their wedding day all planned out. It wouldn't be long, only a few months from that day and they would be husband and wife. He got up.
She received the phone call not long after he left, a phone call that would change her life forever. He was gone.
He was an incredible soul who loved his family very much. And to honor that love she put on the dress. The dress that would say, I love you and I always will... She put on the dress. She now walks down a road not planned but she walks it with courage, with strength and with love.
(Below are a few photos from that day, the day she put on the dress. *To see more from Kena Iversen Photography please visit: www.facebook.com/iversenphotography*)

This stunning young lady you see here, this girl is going places! What an incredible, now graduated, strong woman. If you know Alex then you know what it is to be around a fun, loving, independent, take no nonsense from others kind of girl.
I met Alex through her mother, Nicki, whom is a pretty incredible woman herself. Nicki is a nurse and an incredible nurse that. Three pregnancies for me and she has come to see me at everyone whether she was working or not. In fact she has always been one of the first to hold my precious babies. Before I knew it Nicki and I had known one another for almost six years and she was calling me to schedule a Senior session for Alex! Where did the time go?
Well that time has come and gone already as Alex graduated in May and is looking to her future. I was so honored to work with this girl and I am excited to see what comes next for her. I know her mama is not ready to think of this yet but before you know another six years will have passed and this girl could be married or changing the world in one of the numerous ways we know she can or maybe both! I look forward to working with Alex again and who knows maybe we can finally get the whole family in front of the camera :)
