We offer unique vintage clothing, accessories, home goods, and modern pieces – that are on track with today’s conscious fashion sense. We use photography in-studio and on location to document our clients’ killer style and preserve life’s milestones. For us, preserving the past + present is just as important as chasing the future. The shop is our headquarters for studio shoots, consultations, and ordering/picking up prints, but most shoots happen on location all over Des Moines and the US.
About the Owener- Founded by Nicole Lorenson, Preservation is a vintage and modern lifestyle shop and photo studio located in downtown Des Moines, IA. Nicole has been working as a professional photographer since 2005. Her portrait style is timeless yet modern—much like the vibe at the shop. She specializes in weddings, newborns, and everything in between. “Growing up on a farm in Iowa has always been a huge source of inspiration and pride for me. I started collecting vintage in college where I studied photography and have not given either up! I am a nostalgia junkie, I love old photos, old clothes, old stories, you name it! I look through my family photo albums almost every time I come home to visit. Currently Preservation is my baby but I do have two small dogs Arlo + Remy who I could not live without. Happiness to me is time spent making memories with my closest friends and family.”
