Hey There


Sarah + Zach Warm Winter Engagement | Botanical Garden Center Des Moines

Sarah and I have been planning this engagement session since before the holidays, and she knew right away that she wanted to have photos during the warmer seasons! With her wedding being in September, doing summer photos was going to be cutting it close! I threw out there that we could totally go to the botanical garden in Des Moines and Harvey’s green house! There, it was a balmy 77 degrees, instant summer!! We had a lot of fun walking around looking at all the tropical plants! We even got a ring shot on a pineapple, which is hands down the best fruit ever.  I love the way Sarahs blue dress just pops in Harvey’s Greenhouse, don’t even get me started on the fabulous red hair!!!

The sweet expressions this couple shares will just melt your heart!  I hope these get you in the mood for warmer seasons that are soon to come!  <3
