FOR ADVENTUROUS AND UNCONVENTIONAL COUPLES
We believe your wedding day should be a celebration centered around your love and commitment towards each other. As photographers, we are here to not only document your story, but to help and guide you in creating an unforgettable experience.
We believe everyone’s uniqueness should be embraced and celebrated. It would be our honor to be a part of this unforgettable journey with you!
BASED IN IOWA,
DOCUMENTING INCLUSIVE LOVE STORIES WORLDWIDE
Hi! We are David and Rob, a husband and husband team specializing in wedding and elopement photography.
Soon after we met we became inseparable. Falling in love sparked a passion in us for documenting other people’s love stories and commitment towards each other.
As photographers, it is our goal to document the love stories of people from diverse backgrounds, and to help create experiences that are truly representative of a couple’s values. We look forward to helping you plan an unforgettable adventure!

We believe some of the most meaningful images are usually those of unplanned moments. When telling your story, we aim to create timeless and honest images through the use of natural light and a documentary approach to storytelling. It is our goal to capture the real moments and connections with loved ones in the most natural way possible.
Your love story is unique, the way you remember it should be too. Our goal is to capture your personality both as a couple and as individuals. Your images should be a reflection of the genuine moments and emotions that bond you together. Whatever fire you burn, let’s throw more wood into it!
Kind words from some of the couples we've had the privilege to work with
Yazmin & Memo
“I could not be more happy with the work Rob and David did, not only for my engagement pictures but also my wedding! They do not make you feel pressured in any way and simply makes the photoshoots fun and not awkward or intimidating! They captured true smiles which is what i was most impressed with, being that i was grieving the loss of a loved one and not in the mood to smile and they still managed to capture great pictures including my natural smile! Very professional and friendly!”
Marcela & Gerardo
“They helped make my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera!! I absolutely love that their main focus is capturing more lifestyle, natural pictures instead of just awkward posed pictures. We truly had so much fun and you can see the love we feel by looking at the pictures! Our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning!! Communicating with them is so easy and they are extremely professional. You can see the passion they have with the way they carry themselves. It was such a perk to have two photographers, we have so many different perspectives! I most definitely recommend Silk & Thorn, you will be forever thankful with their beautiful work!!”
We love to meet new people and experience new places as often as possible. These are some of our current travel plans. If you plan to be in any of these locations we'd love to work with you!
