Kayla & Tim Engagement

We had an absolutely magical engagement session with Kayla and Tim, at Backbone State Park, in Dundee, Iowa. The evening sun peering through the thick forest created a fairy tale woodland scene, right out of a story-book. The old stone wall added yet another fairy...

What is “full service photography”?

It means that we aren’t satisfied just shooting your wedding or portraits and giving you a CD of images.

Let us help you turn your home into an art gallery of memories!

Nick Chill

Photographer/Instructor

My name is Nick Chill. I like to tell people that I try to live up to my name. I am pretty laid back and like to enjoy the little things in life. I grew up in New Castle, PA, with two younger siblings. I haven’t always been so laid back, but life teaches you lessons.

I first picked up a camera while living in San Diego, CA, during my service in the US Navy. A trip to the Grand Canyon inspired me to purchase my first Nikon. I quickly fell in love with photographing birds around Southern California. It didn’t take long before I was obsessed with Pacific sunsets. Finally, I found the beauty in photographing the joy of other human beings. In January 2014 I moved to Iowa, to join the love of my life, Rachel, and her three children. It was shortly after moving here that we decided to turn the joy of photographing humans into an official branch of my business, now that I’m married to a beautiful assistant.

It was in San Diego that I also found a love for teaching others to capture the beauty of life. I’ve carried that love with me, to Iowa, and now teach classes both at Arthaus Decorah and out of our home studio. It’s hard to say which I love more, shooting or teaching, but it goes without saying that I love what I do.
