Very rarely does an idea come together as perfectly as this one did!! A huge shoutout and thank you to Taylor for absolutely killing it and to our friend Hailey for assisting on this shoot, I couldn't be happier with the results. And thankfully we don't have any wild story to tell, we were in and out with no issues. I can only hope this is the first of many collabs between us!
This past Sunday I hosted the #319Summer18 meetup at my old stomping grounds, Bever Park on the SE of Cedar Rapids. We had 30-35 eastern Iowans turn out for food on the grill, conversation with other local creatives and a golden hour photowalk for portraits. This was the 15th meetup I've hosted over the past 3 years as founder of the @319illgrammers, a local collective of photographers, models, stylists, videographers and graphic designers connected through interests and Instagram. Here are a few of my favorites shots of the gang from the evening.
