vibrant. genuine. joyful.
Hi, there! I'm Seneca but you can call me Sene! I was born and raised in rural Iowa and can't see myself living anywhere else. In 2010, I shot my first wedding and became a full-time photographer in 2013. A a ten year-old, my passion for photography began with an old Pentex film camera and 4-H. Today, I feel so honored + grateful that God's given me this business to capture the beauty of His creation and the gift of love.
As a recent Iowa State Alum, I married my best friend, Jared in 2013. There is never a dull moment with him for he keeps me laughing, trying new things and dreaming big. We officially became residents of his hometown of Waverly a few years ago. I love being a home owner with walls to paint, furniture to restore and flowers to plant. Last Fall, we added a member to our little family, Harvey. He's a mini goldendoodle and has been the perfect little companion. You can follow his adventures on Instagram under
I'm so happy you came across my little online home. I love connecting with new people so don't hesitate to reach out to me!
Hi, there! I'm Seneca but you can call me Sene - it's what I'm used too! I live in Waverly, Iowa with my college sweetheart, Jared, and our pup, Harvey. He's a mini goldendoodle!

I wholeheartedly believe that the best images are those captured by a friend. Someone who knows your love story, makes you feel comfortable and isn't afraid of to share a few laughs.
Cultivating an incredible wedding experience starts well before my camera is in hand. I want to get to know you. From the wedding planning to what you like to do in your spare time, I'd love to learn it all. Building a bond creates a relaxed and fun atmosphere, allowing us to be a team and knock your wedding out of the ballpark.
I'm in this industry because I simply love weddings. If I wasn't a photographer, I know I'd be a wedding planner. Whether it's suggesting vendors or planning the perfect wedding timeline, I'll be there every step of the way. Think of me as your on-call wedding advisor, who is only an email, text or FaceTime away.
It would be an absolute honor to tell your love story through a collection of timeless and heartfelt images. My goal as your photographer is to capture your relationship, your love, and your story through an unforgettable photography experience.
How are my photos delivered?
You will receive your images via a PASS gallery link. This online gallery will contain the edited images from your session which can be download all the images straight to your computer. You are also able to order high-quality prints within the gallery. You’re more than welcome to share the link so others can see inside your gallery and order prints of their own as well. This link will be accessible for 10 years!
Can I get a CD of edited images?
No, but let me explain. First, the PASS gallery is a more efficient delivery system and more reliable. You will have all the edited images at your finger tips, allowing instant download to your computer at any time and however many times you want! Secondly, the CD lifespan is only a few years - if that. The gallery’s lifespan is 10 years! If you really want your photos on something other than your computer, grab an USB and add the images. With a couple of clicks, your entire gallery can be sent straight to the USB. Finally, CDs are easily misplaced and can be ruined by the environment. Your PASS gallery is impossible to lose or damage. I promise!
Do you offer prints?
Prints and gallery wraps can be purchased in your PASS gallery.
Is an Engagement Session included when I invest in The Wedding Experience?
Absolutely! It's the perfect practice run for your wedding day! It helps you feel comfortable in front of my camera, learn how I pose and interact with you. I firmly believe it is an essential part of The Wedding Experience!
Do you work with a second shooter?
Yes! I have a lovely assistant that works alongside me to capture your big day.
