Megan and Aaron at the Six Month Mark

Today marks 6 months before these two love birds tie the knot! I love love love a good October wedding! And not just because I had my own wedding in October...although that may make me a tad  bias. I just all around think Fall is the most perfect time of the year. That probably means I'm living in the wrong part of the country! 

Speaking of parts of the country, Megan and Aaron are heading here all the way from Texas for their wedding day! They are so excited to celebrate with friends and family on the Pladna family farm. I got to get a little sneak peek of the location because they let me check it out when I did a quick engagement mini shoot while they were visiting. It's going to be beautiful! And it's happening in six short months! 

In the meantime...here are some of my favorites from their engagement shoot! 

Taylor & Zachary {Wedding} Sneak Peek

Last November on the first snow fall in Wisconsin, Zachary Ryan Ashpole asked Taylor Alexis Ward to be his wife. And on October 15, 2016 they exchanged vows (which were absolutely amazing, despite their nerves about writing their own) and they were married in front of their many loved ones. It was such a happy day for everyone. It's so obvious that these two are meant to be together and all of their friends and family love and support them in their new adventure! 

I loved everything about their wedding! The wedding party was hilarious, kind, laid-back and so much fun to work with! This was the first time I've actually had the groomsmen ask to do MORE pictures. Could not have asked for a better bunch of people, and I know Taylor and Zach feel the same way. The wedding vendors I worked alongside were great as well: A Guy and a Grill made the delicious food, Sassy Stems rocked the flowers, and the venue was stunning! Everything took place at the Barn at Brophy Creek Farm outside of DeWitt. The staff was a huge help and made the day flow seamlessly. 

I am so happy for these two newlyweds and was honored to be a part of their wedding day celebration! 

Justin's Sneak Peek

I got to meet the Gruhn family and spend some time checking out their beautiful farm in Sabula, Iowa for Justin's senior portraits. I always love a big red barn in the Fall!

Justin is a senior at Easton Valley High School and with his experience working on a large farm he has plans to go to a trade school for big equipment. He is the beef ambassador this year and was the beef king last year, which allows him to participate in parades, help out in the show ring and at the fair, and he also holds cookouts for the Cattlemen. Justin is also in 4H and has had some of his pieces go to state and even win!

It was nice meeting Justin and his family! I hope he has a great senior year and wish him the best with his plans for the future!  While I finish up editing his photos, here is a little sneak peek of the session:
