Engagement Portraits {Why I Love Them}

Yesterday evening, I headed to Clear Lake, Iowa for Kenny and Erin's engagement session.  During the somewhat lengthy car ride home I was thinking about how much I love engagement sessions.  Engagement sessions are such a wonderful thing, not just for the couple to have amazing images to share with friends and family, announce their engagement in the paper, or to display at their wedding, but for me as well.  I get the opportunity to get to know the couple before the wedding day.  To know some tricks to get them to relax and smile or to know how they relax into each others arms.  For example, I learned today that apparently Kenny is a fan of knock-knock jokes.  I also learned I know very few good ones.  :)  This relationship is such a wonderful thing to build before the wedding.

Jason & Holly {Wedding}

Earlier this month, I headed to Cedar Falls to capture Holly and Jason's wedding.  Holly is from Iowa originally and decided to return home for her wedding.  She and Jason are both currently serving in the Air Force and are stationed on the East Coast.  I'm glad they had the wedding in Iowa, it was a beautiful event and I truly enjoyed capturing it.

'Tis the Season

Despite my best plans, life happens.  The kids are back at school and germs are spreading.  I'm not a germ-a-phobe by any means, but I am a realist.  I knew we were going to get hit with something this year.  However, I didn't realize it would be so early in the season.  For the past week, our family has taken it in turns to be quite ill and that has put me a lot farther behind on editing, designing, blogging, and pretty much everything work related.

Nick & Emily

At the end of June I assisted Greg Frieden Photography in capturing this beautiful day.  Nick and Emily were such a fun a loving couple.  Their day was filled with love: their strong love for each other, the love and support of their families, and the love for them that each wedding guest brought.
