Kaitlin + Ashton | A cozy Fall engagement session at Vander Veer Botanical Park in Davenport, Iowa

I was really excited to finally meet Kaitlin and Ashton! Usually I get to meet my wedding couples at a consultation before they book with me, but due to their very busy schedules (paramedic and nursing school student!) we stuck to email. I could tell even without meeting in person that she was a sweetheart and that they would be such a wonderful couple to work with. Nailed it! All it takes is being in love and looking forward to the marriage (not just the wedding!) for me to know it’s a perfect match. These two are exactly that!

Kaitlin told me about the very romantic proposal in Chicago, involving a suite and rose petals. Nice job, Ashton! He totally swept her off her feet from the very first “hello.” I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next Summer! But until then, here’s a sneak peek from their cozy Fall engagement session at Vander Veer Park in Davenport!

Spooner Family | A family session in a cool alleyway in downtown Clinton, Iowa

I was so excited to hear from Kara! I first met her in May when I photographed the Clinton Community College nursing pinning ceremony. My dad hooked me up with that gig; he’s one of the instructors for the nursing program and thought it would be great for them to have the event documented. This was my second time photographing the pinning and it’s been such a privilege to watch the hard work pay off for the students. Kara sat with us for lunch after and we got to chit chat, she’s so kind and I know my dad loves working with her as well. So when she emailed me to ask if I could do her family pictures of course I said yes! Thankfully we found a date that worked during this crazy busy Fall photography season and even got super lucky with the weather.

Even though the handsome men in her family were a little less than thrilled to have family portraits taken, it didn’t take them long to relax and make it a fun experience! I loved their session and the photos we got from it…here are some of them!

Aubriana + Colin | A sweet & stylish engagement session in downtown Davenport, Iowa

Oh my gosh! I hope Aubriana and Colin had as much fun as I did at their engagement session! One after another adorable shots… I was one happy photographer on Sunday! These two are so perfect for each other, absolute sweethearts, and just beautifully in love. I had so many ideas for portraits and we literally had to stop because we ran out of daylight. So now I’m even more excited for their May 2020 wedding! Here’s a little peek at Aubri and Colin’s stylish downtown Davenport engagement shoot while I finish up the rest of the gallery!
