fine wedding photography

Ana Woods is a Fine Art Wedding & Portrait Photographer based in Des Moines, Iowa & traveling Worldwide. 

For six years, I've had the humbling job of preserving memories for my clients. A storyteller since I could read and an artist since I could express creativity - I've always been swept away in the romance of art, literature, and legacies of love. When I'm not behind my camera, I'm a writer at Ana Woods Writing and wife to my high school sweetheart, Mitchell. We live on an acreage and spend our spare time gardening, cooking, and rocking on the front porch. 

My work has taken me across the country (and Paris, too), and I've been voted one of the Top Wedding Photographer's in Des Moines. My clients, though diverse, all seem to value the same things: gorgeous (no, epic) celebrations, meaningful details, and photographs that communicate simple elegance. I'm lucky to work with some of the most tasteful and visionary souls and would love to hear your story. 

Hello there! I'm Ana, your new photographer, friend, and love story enthusiast.  

Hi, I'm Ana!

A FEW THINGS I BELIEVE:

Photos don't belong on your computer.
They belong on your walls, in your wallet, and taped to your mirror forever.
