Paulina & Ben - Wedding Film

We are thrilled to release the full wedding film for Paulina & Ben Colton!

Back on May 7, we had the pleasure of shooting a splendid country club, big-top tent wedding in Burlington, IA. I had met Ben in passing a few years back, and knew Paulina was a friend of friends, but it was our first official meeting together when we knew this wedding was going to be a blast to shoot! Any time spent around these two will simultaneously be as relaxed and fun a day could get. They radiate joy and love for each other, but never miss an opportunity to chuckle or crack a joke.

In case you missed the teaser trailer, check it out here.

Their wedding was at the gorgeous Burlington Golf Club, but took place in a simple and elegant big-top ten near the practice green. The relaxed and fun nature of these two truly came out in the styling, while painting a clear picture of their future full of love and adventure. The ceremony, officiated by David Livingston, was an amazing story of love between God and his people, and of the love between Paulina & Ben. Even with a little heat combined with a little rain drizzle, we had an amazing time, and were very blessed to be a small part of the day.



Congratulations, Paulina & Ben! May God bless you on your adventure together.

Felicity Joy

A few weeks back, we welcomed the newest member to the Dust Studios family - Felicity Joy Noll! 

Since this one has already made it to two(2!) weddings in her short, 7-week, post-womb life, we are a bit past due in formally introducing her to you all.


If you want to know more about the birth and all that jazz, I will let you ask Martha personally. While all the details are quite unnecessary, some of them are grand and beautiful. We thought we would try to capture those pieces with a short video and some photos. 



Thank God for children and good health! We are rich indeed.

Mia & Luke - A Wedding Film

Our first wedding of 2016 could hardly have been better!

Being involved in weddings year in and year out means perpetually living in a "small world". It seems as though (nearly) every single wedding we get to be a part of, we see old friends, or meet friends of friends, or someone's parents know our parents, or our high school friends went to college with our recent friends. You name it, the scenario has likely crossed our path!

With Luke and Mia, it was much more direct. Mia was Martha's college roommate for a year whom I (Gabe) became acquainted with by proximity; Martha and I were still dating at the time. Fast-forward a couple of crazy years and I sign up to play soccer with a couple friends and a handful of "randos" (random people - to me at least). Lo and behold, our team captain is none other than Luke Pierson! It wasn't until Mia started coming to the occasional soccer game that I started to put the (obvious) pieces together.

Fast forward another 6 months, and these guys are married.

There are pros and cons to having a wedding in any season and any setting. For instance, a winter wedding tends to add some challenges to shooting out of doors. But we got our 3 minutes in, and it was worth it!

As you can see, Mia and Luke toughed it out like champs, and that says more about their character than anything! It was such a blast to shoot with these guys, and get to see just how much fun and excitement they have in their relationship. It is obvious God is taking them places, and it will be a joy to behold!


Congratulations, Mia & Luke!

Whilst We've Been Away...

While this blog has not seen much love in recent months, the Dust Studios team has been quite busy!

Prior to the summer's tsunami of grand weddings, we were able to launch this new website and dive deeper into our branding and client relations. Needless to say, we love the opportunity to be creative with every aspect of our business, and yet - there is so much more we can do!

First up, communicating more with our clients/friends in an effort to build and strengthen relationships!

A big part of communication and relationship is transparency. We want to be honest about our lives in hopes that you will do the same. And while we love what we do and the people we get the pleasure of working with, it really is a smaller portion of our time than it may seem. We keep pretty active on our Facebook and Instagram accounts, but still have a desire to share more in-depth about our work and our lives. Hence, the blog!


1. Most of you who know our GENIUS PHOTOgrapher(s), Elena and Nathan, will know that they are on an adventure in Albania, supporting the church there in many ways.

They have an awesome blog together that you should definitely check that out to hear about their goings-on and see some killer photos (frequently featuring their new puppy!). 

Some teasers to pique your interest:


2. The video team (gabe & Martha) has been carrying on, shooting a great deal of weddings as well as some special projects here and there. 

We will be updating the blog with our recent work and general good times. But for all things Dust prior to 2016, check out our videos page! We shot a lot of super-fun and exciting weddings over the course of 2015, and don't want you to miss those.

The most recent update( addition) would be that of our newest family member, Felicity Joy! She was born back on March 25th and we could not be more thankful!

We will discuss that adventure soon, but for now, here is a teaser:


That's all for now, folks. More to come!
