This past Sunday I was able to meet Anna and Barrett and take their engagement photos! These two currently reside in Chicago, with Anna being from Iowa and Barrett, Indiana.
It was a super cold day (but we were expecting it). So we started the morning off down on the Riverwalk. Anna and Barrett braved the chilly weather as I told them it was their job to stay close and keep each other warm. After a sufficient amount of time in the wind we ventured over to the Botanical Center for some warmth! I have never shot in the Botanical Center but it turned out great! We got a ton of natural light to work with and got to incorporate more of a spring feel to their photos.
I loved wandering the Riverwalk and through the plants of the Botanical Center getting to know these two a little more. I loved hearing their proposal story and how Anna’s ring was Barrett’s grandmother’s (and was even stolen and later found in a pawn shop!).
Anna and Barrett – Thank you so much for traveling back to Des Moines for your photos! You two were a ball to spend the morning with and I’m very much looking forward to August! I hope you love the images!
