A little while back, I had a chance to spend some time with this awesome couple, Shelby and Jordan. They opted to have a Des Moines engagement for some beautiful, scenic photos — lets just say that these two knocked it out of the park. This Des Moines engagement rapidly became one of my favorites after taking these two to a few of my favorite spots and photographing their interaction together. Both of them were so light-hearted and fun that it no longer felt like work. On top of their great personalities, these two brought photo ideas to the table that really elevated the shoot and added a little personal touch. It doesn't happen as often as I'd like, but it's wonderful when couples take an interest and share ideas.
As for the scenery...we ran around fields of tall grass, found some trees with vibrant fall colors, trekked across a little beach, and crawled on a peninsula of rock to get these two near the water as the last light of the day dipped below the horizon. In looking back, it's hard to believe that Iowa has this much to offer, but I'm so glad it does.
This session turned out to be amazing and I can't wait to see what the future holds for these two. I'm excited to shoot their wedding next year, but in the meantime, help me celebrate this awesome couple by checking out their beautiful photos and sharing some love.
