Hey There


Stephanie + Nathan | Des Moines Engagement Photographer

Today’s Iowa Engagement Session was a fun one indeed! Stephanie and Nathan decided to start out at the arcade bar Up Down, in the east village in downtown Des Moines. It was so neat and fun because this is where they had their first date! I love that personal touch they put into their engagement session!

We then took a few shots downtown and a few at Harvey’s Greenhouse! This place has become one of my favorite spots to take photos!  Their adorable Chiweenie (a dachshund-chihuahua mix) Maggie joined us too!   Finishing out our Iowa engagement session we payed a visit to Penoach Winery in Adel Ia.  This place was absolutely adorable, Stephanie and Nathans outfits went so well with the grape vines  and barn doors in the sunset! I am obsessed with how these turned out! Nathan and Stephanie are such an awesome couple to be around, laid back and so much fun! I cant wait for their wedding day!

Here are my favorites from out session, which lets be honest is like every picture I took, they all turned out so good!
