About Me


And I'm Jim Barcus. 

I grew up on the hard streets of Des Moines, Iowa before dropping out of beauty school. Well, growing up in Des Moines is true. But I don't mind telling people I crashed and burned out of beauty school.  

For nearly 20 years I was a photojournalist covering stories locally and around the world. I've been published in Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated, USA Today and The New York Times just to name some of my parent’s favorites. Now I choose making beautiful memories using my cameras, documenting brides and grooms on their very best day.  

I'm surrounded with love from wife Nancy, my son Jesse, my daughter Emma Grace and our English Bulldog, Luca Brasi.
