Thackery & Kiah are Married ~ Quad Cities Wedding Photographer

October 15, 2019


I was so blessed to capture the wedding day of Thackery and Kiah on Sunday, October 13. Their relationship is truly one-of-a-kind, and to be in their presence, was to be in the presence of true love.

Nearly ten years ago, their love story began– based on friendship, music, and church. And that foundation continued through more than four years of dating and led them to their wedding day.

Interestingly, I privately asked both Kiah and Thackery what they love most about each other. Kiah told of Thackery’s love of Christ, and Thackery, Kiah’s genuity and sincerity throughout her life. Together, their responses foretell an amazing future together. Both of them possess what they admire about the other. They share a deep love for Christ and in all my interactions throughout months of planning, I can say they are an incredibly sincere and authentic couple.

Kiah and Thackery, thank you so much for inviting me to capture your wedding day. You have an amazing, magical relationship, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Enjoy some of my favorites from your wedding day.
