As an engagement photographer I love to take couples out and explore new places. Despite the hot weather and the swarms of mosquitoes I had so much fun capturing Annie and Casey’s engagement photos at Valley Junction and Jester Park in Des Moines, Iowa.
When Francis and Brittany asked if we could take their engagement photos in Duluth, Minnesota I immediately said yes! I love going on adventures with couples and exploring a new place together! If you are wanting to take engagement photos in a national or state park, do it! I would love to come along and capture the adventure for you both!
A day at the farm! Loved capturing these engagement photos with Kyle and Kayla at their farm and being photo bombed by all the chickens! Do you love fresh fruits and veggies, free range eggs or handmade good from the farm? Check out their farm and store Under A Tin Roof
The Des Moines Botanical Gardens is one my favorite locations as an engagement photographer. When Ross and Cassi asked to take their engagement photos here I was thrilled! We had so much fun at the Botanical Gardens with all the beautiful plants we felt like we were in a whole different world. Here are just a few of my favorites from our time there!
Do you and your fiancé have a favorite coffee shop you like to go to? Bre and Sam love West End Salvage in Des Moines and it was the perfect spot for their engagement photos! Part coffee shop part salvage store West End Salvage is an engagement photographers dream! We finished their engagement session by swinging over to Water Works Park and got lost in the trees! We explored every nook and cranny of the 5 story building to find the best spots to take their engagement photos and I am excited to share those with all of you!
Indian Creek Nature Center in Cedar Rapids was the perfect place for Corey and Sam’s engagement session! The open fields, paths, and boardwalk in the forest are some of my favorite spots here! I always recommend to schedule your engagement session at Golden hour to gives us the best light for your engagement photos!
Loved taking engagement photos with Steven and Shelby at their favorite restaurant and park in Cedar Rapids. Caucho allowed for us to come in and take some photos inside their beautiful restaurant before they opened. We also went over to Indian Creek Nature Center and brought along their furry friend for some photos!
Cedar Rapids has so many great locations to take engagement photos! Have a favorite local brewery you like to grab a beer at after work? For Cameron and Sarah we went to Czech Village in Cedar Rapids and visited Lion Bridge Brewery and explored the village! For engagement photos I love to take couples to places that mean something to them! I hope you enjoy some of my faves from this engagement session!
Beautiful day taking engagement photos with Alex and Andie at Lake MacBride and Big Grove Brewery in Iowa City! Do you have a favorite place you and your fiancé like to hangout after work or on the weekend? We can incorporate the places you love to spend time together in your engagement session and make them personal to you!
