Lauren & Alex | Des Moines, IA Engagement Photographer

When your best friend gets engaged you feel two things. You feel so INCREDIBLY excited for her. You want to jump up and down and can’t wipe the smile off your face. And then there is a part of you (I must admit) that is a little sad – knowing that your best friend in the whole wide world has found a new best friend of sorts. Lauren is one of my best friends in the whole entire world – we actually joke that we are more like twins separated at birth. Understanding one another when others around us have no clue what is going on. We met in 7th grade and went through high school together being super awkward but completely ourselves and having the best time ever. When it came time for college we went to two different schools – I went to the University of Minnesota and she went to Iowa State University. That is where Alex came into the picture 🙂

Alex and Lauren fit. That’s the only way I can describe it. Lauren is the funniest person I know, and I have never heard her laugh as loud or have seen her smile as much as when she is around Alex. They definitely know how to be goofy (as you will see in some of these photos :)) And they have really grown to be an amazing couple these past 5 years. When I first met Lauren back in our middle school days, never in a million years would I have guessed that I would be taking her and Alex’s engagement photos!

Lauren and Alex – Thank you so much for trusting me to photograph your engagement photos! Thank you for being some of my biggest supporters in this photography dream of mine! I hope they make you smile as much as they did me while I was editing them!

I told you they are goofballs.
