Newborn Baby Boy Photographer – Burlington Iowa

Lorelei first started coming to Wendi Riggens Photography when she was just three months old.  Now, she’s a big sister to little Kipton!

This session was photographed in their home. I love shooting in your environment! Everyone is a little more at ease, and the images really speak volumes about who you are.  Photographers, most of these images were photographed with my Canon 5D MkII and the EF 100 2.8 macro.


Burlington Iowa Engagement & Wedding Photographer

Jean and Tom are getting married at The Ambiance in Quincy in August, and it is going to be wonderful! We photographed their engagement session in Burlington a couple of weeks ago, and I had so much fun!  Jean’s bright blue eyes are just stunning!!  Tom is an artist and showed his pottery at a show in Ft Madison that evening, which fascinates me. I always wanted to do pottery as a kid, and he has talent!

My how she has grown! It seems like just yesterday I was photographing her mommy’s maternity session in Macomb, Illinois.  Now Miss Isabela is turning one in a couple of weeks!

Look at these big brown eyes! Aren’t they adorable?

Almost Full Moon – April 2011 – Burlington, Iowa – Wendi Riggens Photography

I shot this Saturday night, hanging out of our car window in the Taco Bell drive thru.
Taken with my Canon 5DMkII & 70-200 2.8 IS
Shot at 200mm, ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/320

Almost a full moon, just a sliver is missing. I’m not sure this is at the right orientation, either. I was shooting this from our car in the Taco Bell drive-thru, and the moon was almost behind us, so I was hanging out of the car window just trying to hold still.  It’s cropped in pretty tight, too.

It’s still beautiful! I want to go there some day. No, seriously, it would be incredible!
