Melissa and Dan put up with the snow, cold, and even rain during their session, but we still got some amazing shots! Loved spending a little time with these two before their big day in April!

The wind was terrible but I still had a great evening with Zoey and Jack for their engagement pictures! Luckily we were able to find some spots away from the wind and the pictures turned out amazing!

We took Ashley and Jon’s engagement pictures at Black Hawk State Park and Vander Veer Park. The weather was perfect and it was so much fun to get to know these two and meet their fur baby, Kya!

I had a great time with Emily and Aaron in Des Moines! We visited some of their favorite spots including a few breweries in the East Village, the Capitol building, and Drake University. We even got their dog, Hansel, in a few pictures!

I had the best afternoon in Chicago with Hayley and Nick! These two live right downtown so we started their session in the park near their apartment. We finished off the afternoon with views of the city. I couldn’t be happier with how these pictures turned out!

I had the best morning with Jacey and Reed! These two are crazy about each other which made the session effortless. We had so much fun taking pictures in downtown Cedar Rapids and at Lake MacBride. We even got a few with their fur baby, Rooney!
