Cinematic & emotive Photography

Based in Iowa, Documenting Inclusive Love Stories Worldwide

David & Rob

Our Approach To Photography



Being an LGBTQ couple ourselves, our goal is to celebrate and document love in each and every form. We know first hand the struggle of many people to find acceptance for who they love, and feel privileged to be able to tell the love stories of couples from all walks of life. Words from one of the couples we’ve worked with: “We want nothing more than a couple who has walked a similar path as us and understands what it’s like to find love and happiness to document this once in a lifetime moment!”


Emotion / Honest Moments

More than just capturing a beautiful photo, we are drawn to moments and images that evoke emotion and tell a deeper story. The subtle gestures, the way you look at each other, the happy tears, and all the unrepeatable moments that happen in an instant. When you look back at your photos, we want you to be transported back to the feeling of what it felt like experiencing your day, as well as how your loved ones experienced it.



We love adventure, and appreciate the beauty in imperfection. Rather than focusing on trying to create a perfect photo (whatever that may be), we strive to create images that encapsulate the emotions, stories, and raw essence of the day. 

We believe in crafting experiences that embrace adventure, where one is free to truly live and enjoy the unique aspects and spontaneity of the day. It’s often times in the moments of letting go and embracing the adventure that we can be the most creative, and create art with much deeper meaning and emotion. 


Moody / Cinematic

Let’s make art with your wedding photos! A big inspiration for our photography has always been movies, old paintings, and film photography. We love the feeling of romance and nostalgia that these mediums create, and hope to evoke the same feeling through photography.

Kind Words

“I don’t think there are enough words in the English dictionary to describe how wonderful our experience with Silk & Thorn was!

David has an incredible still of being able to capture moments that feel unique, intimate, and timeless. He is extremely knowledgeable of his craft and has an arsenal of creativity that just makes him a joy to be around. We are so excited to have been able to capture high-quality photos of our wedding that we will get to look back on for years to come!”
