Year 30 Cake Smash | Des Moines Photography

Happy Birthday Alyssa!!

Yesterday, I had so much fun shooting a 30 year birthday cake smash! Now, as a local photographer in the Des Moines area who mainly does weddings, I knew that this was a perfect opportunity to take advantage of slow season.

Alyssa is one of my past brides who got married last November, and she is also a Cake baker and owns The Sweetest Thing and oh my goodness her cakes and desserts are seriously so freaking good! At her wedding she made her own desserts and cake, so naturally she made her own birthday cake too!

I absolutely am obsessed with how this little set up turned out! It’s perfect for celebrating your 30th birthday and I hope you enjoy these fun photos we created! <3
