Photography is more than smiles and pretty pictures. It reminds us of what we've forgotten, tell us where we've been, and shows what we've accomplished. Life is a process, photography is an experience. Embrace the process, enjoy the experience.

I'm Ted, Owner/Photographer at Sandeen Photography in Ankeny, Iowa. I specialize in High School Senior Portraits and Wedding Photography. I am also the husband to my best friend, Stephanie.

Typically I am found in my studio, working with HS Seniors during the afternoons and evenings, or around the Des Moines area on weekends capturing the moments at a wedding. Additionally, I am the team photographer for the Iowa Wild, and also photograph boy's state finals for the Iowa High School Sports Network.

The I do's, celebrating graduation, the game winning shot, these moments are here and gone in an instant. But photography, good photography, allow these moments to be savored. Our family always made a habit of pulling out old albums at get togethers and before you know it, the history comes pouring out of everyone. I've found that being able to do that for my clients, with our own creative angle, is very rewarding.

Aside from my photography, I spend time with my wife exploring new restaurants, traveling, ISU athletics, family gatherings, netflix binging, and lots of NFL football games.

I would love to hear from you about your photography needs and how we can customize it to fit you. Feel free to call me, or send me a note at the information below.
