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. My passion for photography started at an early age. I'm so thankful to have been raised by parents who emphasized the importance of preserving life's fondest moments. To this day, I sift through the pages of our family albums, reminiscing on all the memories dear to my heart.
On June 29, 2013, I married my college sweetheart. There is seriously never a dull moment with Jared. He keeps me laughing, trying new things and dreaming big. We officially became residents of his hometown of Waverly in the winter of 2013. 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 (aka fluff ball) 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!
On any given day, you can find me sipping on coffee, listening to Dave Ramsey, and redesigning my home decor . Any fixer upper lovers out there?! Not only do I love being a photographer but I love to blog about life as well.
So if you're a bride, photographer, obsessed with Fixer Upper design or a finance geek like me you're in the right place!

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 receive your images via a PASS gallery link containing all the edited photographs from your wedding. In this online gallery, you can download all images straight to your computer, order high quality prints, share them to social media and much more. You are more than welcome to share the link with loved ones and friends so they can see inside your session and order prints as well. This gallery link is backed up by cloud storage and accessible for 10 years.
Can I get a DVD of edited images?
I do not sell DVDs with edited images for a number of reasons. First, the PASS gallery is more efficient and reliable. You have all your edited images at your finger tips. Allowing you to download images to a computer or mobile device at any time. The DVD lifespan is a few years, if that. The PASS gallery lifespan is 10 years. Woot woot! If you really want your photos on something other than your computer, just grab a USB and add your images to it. With a couple of simple clicks, your PASS gallery images can be sent straight to a USB! Finally, DVD's are easily misplaced over the course of time. Your PASS gallery is impossible to lose. 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 lovely assistant that work alongside me to capture your big day.
