Alex & Zach Engaged / Jester Park / Iowa Engagement Photographer

Alex and Zach were a blast to work with! We headed out to Jester Park to explore the woods there. That weekend I actually discovered a weird play area in the woods along the trail. It has all kinds of great things for kids to explore (and adults, let's be honest it was exciting discovering this!). I love shooting out here, it's so tranquil and has the perfect backdrop for portraits. I always ask my clients if they saw the buffalo or elk on their way in, some say yes and some say no! I always love watching them on my way into shoots! It's a great park to explore. 

I am so excited to work with Alex and Zach on their wedding day come next fall! They are an awesome couple and I can only imagine how much fun the wedding day will be. Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your most special day and thank you for going along with my engagement shoot ideas! I had the hardest time finding a tree farm to work with, so we improvised! We stopped at one of those roadside Christmas tree stands and got some really great portraits done! I loved the moodiness of the time of day and the lights that the stand had hanging up. I drive by it a lot, it's over by my house, and I have been wanting to try portraits there for a while. I am so glad that these guys said yes, it was worth the stop! Thanks again Alex and Zach! Can't wait for next fall!
