Iowa City Wedding : Chika and Jeff Richter.
Chika and Jeff Richter were married this November and I was so grateful to capture their Iowa City wedding. They have an interesting story. He studied Japanese culture, stayed there for a year to study, and then returned home to continue studies. She studied at the University of Iowa (from Japan, of all places) and their paths crossed while on a break from class. They have been together since. The love that these two have is an inspiration to those that know them. Jeff is one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met and his integrity sets the bar high for those around him. Chika is a wonderful girl with an amazing demeanor that is shy, timid, and unassuming. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing both of them for a little while and I was flattered that they wanted me to photograph their wedding day. The fine folks at Tru Salon in Coralville made these already gorgeous ladies look even more stunning, as you can see! The images that follow are from a full day of shooting, and together we all had an amazing time.

The day was amazing and it lasted into the night. Thank you, Chika and Jeff! We all had a fantastic day at your wedding and a great night of partying with you, your family, and your friends. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I feel so – honored | lucky | fortunate – to be part of days like this. What a great life I lead! Cheers!
