Ashley and Mike {Fall Iowa Farm Engagement}

We’ve got a fun fall Iowa farm engagement session to share with you today!  Ashley and Mike’s story is actually one of our very favorite stories of a couple finding us ever.  Mike reached out to us first actually because he was planning to propose to Ashley.  He wondered if we’d be able to photograph the proposal for him.  Then, about 2 weeks later Ashley reached out to us about photographing their wedding!  Though Mike still hadn’t proposed, they had determined when their wedding date would be and Ashley wanted to get her key vendors in place before any of us were booked.  We were HONORED that she reached out to us and even more honored when they chose us to photograph their wedding later this year!  Though it didn’t work out for us to be there for their proposal, the four of us got together for engagement photos at their family farm in the fall.  The fall around here was super rainy so of course we had to contend with a little rain, but it let up on us fairly quickly and we were able to have so much fun taking photos together!

Erin and Jason {Fall Galena Engagement}

Erin and Jason had the prettiest of days for their fall Galena engagement session!  The fall around here last year was WET.  I mean seriously, it rained nearly every day.  Erin and Jason lucked out with one of the only days that was sunny and bright and beautiful!  We explored a bit downtown Galena and then went out to the country for a few remaining images with the pretty sunset.  It was such a great day!

These two met working at the same school in a program for at risk kids.  Their hearts for the kids they work with are amazingly huge.  Not only that, they have three kiddos between the two of them and they adore their kiddos so much!  This session took place just one month before their wedding to rest assured you’ll be seeing those photos soon  🙂

Brittney and Ryan {Rainy Galena Engagement}

Brittney and Ryan had the most beautiful rainy Galena engagement session last fall!  The week leading up to the session the weather was not looking good.  Brittney and I were exchanging emails pretty much every day as the forecast kept changing.  In the end we chose to move their session to earlier in the day and chance the rain.  I’m so glad we did!  The dreamy haze that was all around Galena that day made their photos look magical!

These two are truly made for each other!  They have a sweet little boy together and adore him.  They have already had so many amazing adventures in their lives together and their love for each other just continues to grow.  They were smiling and laughing and having so much fun together throughout their session.  We just loved it!  I have so many favorites from their photos so I hope you don’t mind me sharing a few  😉
